Dear Reader,

Writing as Laura Childs, I’ve penned the New York Times bestselling Tea Shop and Scrapbook Mysteries. Now, under my own name, I’m proud to introduce Shadow Girl, the second book in my Afton Tangler Thriller series. And what a thriller this is . . . When a medical helicopter is blasted out of the sky, a dying tycoon’s hope for a heart transplant is dashed.

But that’s just the beginning of a gruesome crime spree that leaves Afton Tangler, family liaison officer, and the Minneapolis PD reeling. Vicious crime boss Mom Chao Cherry has sworn to avenge her husband’s death and recover her stolen narcotics – and nothing can stop her. Hooked on chills and edgy thrills? This book is for you!



Dear Reader,

Since One Thousand White Women was published 20 years ago, I owe its wonderful word-of-mouth success to reading groups who have embraced it. Based on an actual historical event but told through fictional diaries, this is the story of a remarkable woman who travels west in 1875 to marry the Chief of the Cheyenne Nation. I hope you’ll discover it now–the story continues in The Vengeance of Mothers this September.

They say life can change in an instant…

I’ve always wanted to tell the tale of someone who thinks they have their life in order, only to find out that nothing is as it seems, and in fact, it’s all been a lie. In Lost and Found Sisters, Quinn gets gob-smacked with a doozy of a secret and it shakes her to her very core, sending her on a doozy of a journey. But as life tends to do, it all comes down to letting it go or living it. Find out what happens in Lost and Found Sisters. I’m giving away five books.
