Hello, my friends! Long time, no chat, eh? As most of you know, my family and I are in the process of moving back to the Boston area from the Washington, D.C./Maryland area after about eight wonderful, fun-filled years.
So instead of chatting with you all and traveling around signing copies of my first two mysteries/legal thrillers, “Confidential Communications” and “Dishonored,” I’ve been engrossed in a world of cardboard boxes, newspaper and bubble wrap, placing my home on the market and searching for another. But the Reardons love a challenge, and a challenge we embrace! (Well, except for the fact that all of our clothes is in the same colored luggage. I really should have color-coded that.) And fingers crossed that the moving truck does not incur a leak. If that happens, our eco-friendly dissolvable packing peanuts magically disappear, as will the fragile items they currently protect.
I hope you all have been enjoying your summer. As most of you know, I am in the process of writing the draft for book 3 in the Rebecca Tameron Mystery Series, and setting up book signings/speaking arrangements up here in the New England area. That, and relearning back roads!
It has been great fun reconnecting with old friends and family, and meeting people who have read and enjoyed the first two books. As always, I am humbled when people ask when the third installment is coming out! Glowing emails have continued to pour in from all over the world: I wish I could describe the feeling knowing that I have brought you a fun way to escape the daily grind through my imagination.
On Goodreads, “Dishonored” is currently ranked 4.58 out of 5 stars, and many have added it to their reading lists. One reader describes “Dishonored” (in part) as follows: “In Dishonored, Reardon uses her main character(Judge Rebecca Tameron) to take the reader on an exhilarating roller coaster ride with calculated technological twists and diverse legal turns that make the ride (reading her literary art) all the more appealing and unforeseen. Each chapter in Dishonored is filled with its own shot of intrigue jolting the reader along until the last puzzle piece is finally revealed at exactly the right time. Building such a gripping puzzle, as with Dishonored, is exactly what a legal suspense thriller should do... but often does not.”
Amazon ranks “Dishonored” 5 out of 5 stars. On Barnes and Noble, who also shows a ranking of 5 out of 5 stars, a recent reader writes: “I just finished this book and I really enjoyed this book. I highly recommend this book….The plot is thrilling and suspenseful. I could not put this book down.” It is currently tagged #2 in Conspiracy, #4 in Action-Adventure and #7 in Legal Thriller!
Again, I thank you all for your continued support in this series, and am enjoying coming up with even more creative ways to thrill you during your next escape to Deering, Vermont. Please continue to spread the word about “Confidential Communications” and “Dishonored” and ask your local libraries to carry it if they do not yet have copies so others may have a chance to read it as well. When you have time, I’d be thrilled if you would post a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and/or Goodreads and continue to tag the books on Amazon…all it takes is the click of a button.
Talk to you soon!
