Just Who Is Getting Kissed In Safe Haven? And Who Is Getting Murdered? And Why?

Image from the web.

There's a lot of kissing going on in Safe Haven.
Killer kisses.
Wish I could say more, but I don't kiss and tell.
In time for the holidays... a romantic romp of a good time.
It is not a Christmas story, that's  just my deadline.

The Scene : A Farmhouse Kitchen The Crime? Girl Talk To Make You Blush

Glass front cabinets and cut flowers from the garden. Part of Susan's dreamy farmhouse kitchen.  Photo Pinterest.
  “This is just like old times!” Susan opened the bottle of wine and started to fill their glasses. The four of them huddled in the kitchen in their PJ’s drinking and laughing. . . .  And oh the stories they shared, but wait, you'll have to read the book ... coming Christmas 2013.
What inspired the kitchen in my upcoming naughty thriller? A cottage kitchen that would hold a killer farm table and let me act out my own farmhouse fantasy. That's the only fantasy I'll fess up too.  Or else I'd go from cottage white to blushing red!
A little bit of this and a lot of that pulled together to make the perfect kitchen space. Photos from Pinterest helped me design Susan's kitchen, the heart of her two story 1800's grey shingled cottage farmhouse in a small town close to Atlanta.  As an antique dealer, details are important to me.  Susan and I have the same taste, painted furniture, large cupboards and more paintings than wall space. Perhaps you'd like to join us for a glass of wine!
Susan's kitchen is large enough for a farm table to die for, surrounded by eight French style chairs. That little dog, why that could be Daisy, Susan's loveable, spirited, mixed ball of fluff! Pinterest
Who wouldn't love this wonderful farm table and chairs?   Pinterest   I dream of white at night and soft pastel colors during the day. Susan's cottage is a lovely mixture of both.

My cottage style farmhouse fantasy went from a blog where I tried to exorcize the notion I had to move out of my house, to the scene in my first stab at  fiction - a romantic, somewhat naughty, thriller!

As a non-fiction author, The Unfaithful Widow, a personal memoir, available on Amazon and Kindle , writing fiction is awesome! I am having fun with it - perhaps you will too.

I've a deadline to meet so I'd better whip myself in shape and get back to the job at hand!

The Plot Thickens

Graphic from the web. Google Free Betty Boop Graphics.

The plot thickens as I continue to write my romantic, slightly erotic, thriller. Two murders at the college, a farmhouse to die for, a trip to eat fried green tomatoes, an outstanding antique architectural piece purchased at a local shop, a missing dog, and a revealing kiss in an ally have my heroine Susan on edge.

But Susan is no more on edge than I am! Susan is taking me on a writing journey and I am her willing slave. I never know what she will do next, but I can't wait to find out where this all ends.

Hopefully not with me face down in my bottle of sherry. A victim of my own writing folly.

Available for Christmas.
