Lighthouses have always held a tremendous fascination for me. Mystery and beauty surround the age-old structures.
Is it any wonder my next novel includes a lighthouse? LOVING LEXI is due for release Summer of 2015.
LOVING LEXI is set on the Texas coast, present time. Lexi Warner, a reporter, is persuaded to interview Tyler Hawkes, a former sports announcer whose wife’s boating death appears more than accidental to some. After his disappearance, Lexi must embrace her values while tracking down Tyler, and the story of the year.
