Writing a Sequel to Her Deadly Inheritance

pabst-mansion-my-photoMany of you reader fans have blessed me by asking if I’m writing a sequel to Her Deadly Inheritance. The answer is yes!

I’m now polishing this second romantic suspense before I send to my editor at Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. If LPC contracts it, they expect to release it next year.

And, yes, in this novel, Jill meets her birth father. She and Clay arrive at her father’s home to spend the Christmas holidays and find him gravely ill. They soon realize someone is trying to kill him, but who? I’ve had fun weaving lots of intriguing complications into this story along with difficult challenges to their growing love. I can hardly wait for you to read my new novel whose working title is Her Father’s Eyes.

In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy a peek at her father’s house where most of the action takes place.You may recall that in Her Deadly Inheritance, I used Mark Twain’s Connecticut house. Well, for this second novel, I borrowed the Pabst Mansion in Milwaukee. (Can you tell I love historic houses?)

On our vacations, my husband and I never failed to tour a town’s historic house!

Here is a photo I took on my last senior bus trip to the Pabst Mansion. It’s a fabulous house, and I’ll write more about it and post additional photos in future posts.

Thank you to the staff at the Pabst Mansion who have been most helpful on my two on-site research visits.

Do you love historic homes, too? What are some of your favorites?

    • Thank you, Lois. You absolutely make me smile, but you are right. This second novel is taking years less to write. And as soon as it’s in my editors hands, I’ll begin writing the third novel in the series. Never thought God would keep me so busy blessing people through my writing as they seem to indicate. It’s amazing and all His doing.
