Welcome to Devlinsbooks!

WE’RE BACK!!! SORRY IT’S BEEN AWHILE, BUT SOMETIMES LIFE GETS IN THE WAY. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT WE’RE WRITING AND WE HAVE TWO BOOKS IN THE FINAL STAGES.

First up is another Miranda Hathaway Adventure titled, “The Quilters Push Back”. See below for the cover and the back of book synopses. Also coming soon is a brand new character and her story. In “A Knight in Cairo,” we meet Sierra Parker. She’s an archeologist whose specialty is Egyptology. Although she’s not finalized, below is a draft of the back of the book and a mock-up of the proposed cover. It’s a fun read and we think you’ll enjoy it. So take a look and we will let you know as soon as these are available through Amazon.

 

THE QUILTERS PUSH BACK             Miranda Hathaway Adventure #7

This has been a busy year and it’s not over yet. We’ve had several weddings, a long-anticipated graduation, a surprise baby announcement—and an unexpected funeral.

Amid it all, we discovered that our little town is not immune from the serious drug epidemic spreading across the nation. When our kids started dying, Cutler Quilt Guild Number One jumped into action. Using every skill we have from sewing to surveillance, we were determined to find the drug dealers and push them out.

The sudden death of one of our guild members stunned us all. Shock and dismay hit the guild as we mourned the loss of a quilter, teacher, friend, and sister.

Throughout the good and the bad, Harry the cat has been here to comfort, scold, and complain—lest we forget that in the end, it’s always about him.

 

A KNIGHT IN CARIO                                                                                                  Sierra Parker, Museum Curator

The preview event for the Ramesses II and Nefertari exhibit at the Antiquities Museum of New York went off splendidly, until a priceless bracelet disappeared. Associate Curator Sierra Parker is frantic. She discovers the thief and gets the bracelet back not realizing she has just made an enemy.

With her contract soon to expire, Sierra questions what to do next. A summons from the Museum Director, Sir Malcolm Winston, may hold the answer. He has agreed to help his friend at the Cairo Antiquities Museum. Malcolm knows Sierra would never turn down the chance to work in Cairo.

As embarrassing as it is to admit, the tall handsome British knight has a crush on the petite brunette with the shaggy haircut, large brown eyes and shapely figure. He’s read her file. He knows all about her degrees and career, but Malcolm want to get to know her on a more personal level. He doesn’t realize that taking Sierra to Cairo may put her life in danger, but he does know that he would give his to protect her.

I don’t travel much but do travel through my imagination in Sharon’s novels.

Graphic Artist:  Elizabeth Nichols   (enicholsdesign.com)   Elizabeth was recommended by a friend and we couldn’t be happier. When it was suggested that Magee needed a new, improved cover, we contacted Elizabeth. First, we completed the makeovers of all three original Witherspoon novels. And they are awesome! We just give her some of our ideas and she puts together a draft. She’s so great at making any changes we request and it truly is a collaboration.
