I’m so excited to tell you that my romantic suspense, CELESTIAL GIRL, A LILY MODJESKA MYSTERY, will debut for your holiday reading pleasure. The Omnibus Edition includes all four books, Book 1: The Heartland, Book 2: Jewel of the Golden West, Book 3: The Celestial Kingdom, and Book 4: Terminus. Bast Books will also offer each book separately so you can read in affordable installments.

The ebooks will be published on Nook and Kindle with print editions to follow in early 2014.

Lily Modjeska is a typical woman in Toledo, Ohio, 1896: repressed and dependent on her husband. But when Johnny Pentland is found dead in a notorious brothel, Lily discovers her husband is not the man she thought he was.

Pursued by Pentland’s enemies, Lily embarks on a journey that will take her across the country to San Francisco and across the ocean to Imperial China as she unravels a web of murder and corruption reaching from the opium dens of Chinatown to the mansions of Nob Hill.

Her journey becomes one of the heart when she crosses paths with Jackson Tremaine, a debonair, worldly-wise physician. Lily and Jackson begin a conflicted, passionate relationship as they encounter the mysterious Celestial girl and her dangerous entourage.

From the author of The Garden of Abracadabra, Summer of Love, A Time Travel (a Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book), and The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book).
