So Jill and Clay, I’m glad to have you with us on this exciting day! We know you two met and came to love each other in the first book, Her Deadly Inheritance. What did you hope to accomplish in this second story in your series?
Jill (sitting on my couch next to Clay): At my birth father’s invitation, I went to Milwaukee to meet him, hoping finally to know the loving father-daughter relationship I longed for all my life. But I arrived to find he might not have long to live. My heart broke, knowing we might have so little time. And discovering someone might be trying to kill him frightened me into action. Not the first Christmas I had envisioned with him.
And how about you, Clay?
Clay (with his arm around Jill): I went with Jill to give her the support she would need. But also with big plans to make our first Christmas special. I intended to include her father in my plans, if he was willing. Never had I experienced so many obstacles. And danger? I wasn’t sure any of the three of us would escape the deadly trap a killer had set for us. Jill is right–this was not the beautiful Christmas we expected until ….
Obviously all turned out well, since you two are here today and healthy.
Clay (smiling at Jill): Yes, Jill and I–with God’s help–make a good team.
You sure do. But now that this second adventure is over, what good news can readers expect in your future?
Jill: Clay leaves soon to renovate a historic hotel in Port au Prince, Haiti, and I will join him the last two weeks to finish plans for our wedding on Easter morning.
That is good news! You’re not expecting any more difficulties, are you?
Jill and Clay smile and shrug their shoulders, and I don’t blame them. Trouble does seem to find them wherever they go!
It likely won’t be different in the third book in their series,Her Deadly Vows.
Dear Reader, if you have any questions for Jill and Clay, please let me know, and I’ll ask them.
