Anderson — Jennifer and Chad Taylor had dreamed of opening a coffee and cocoa shop since before they said, “I do.” When Chad is sent to prison for murder despite claiming innocence, that dream—along with their family—is shattered.

The Broken Nutcracker

It’s time for a Christmas story in our Ever After Mysteries series, and Chautona Havig always writes the best Christmas stories! Her The Nutcracker’s Suite released on November 26, and to celebrate it, the Ever After authors are doing another of our fun little blog hops! We’re all wondering… Who broke the nutcracker? Click HERE to see the first story.   “It was a nutcracker, not the Hope Diamond.” The hairdresser stopped, scissors in mid-air, and blew a bubble. It was nearly the size of a tennis ball before she sucked the gum back into her mouth and resumed chewing. I leaned away, all too familiar with the hazards of mixing bubble gum and long hair. “But it was my nutcracker,” I said, “and it was important to me. It was a Christmas gift from my friend, Chautona. She’ll notice I’m not displaying it, and she’ll be crushed.” “Cracked,” Trixie said. She snorted. “Not crushed.” I gave her a look and sat up straighter. If she wasn’t such a good stylist, I’d have found someone else years ago. Fortunately, she never tried to talk me into emulating her own ever-changing styles. I’d look ridiculous in pink spikes or a platinum Read More

The Lost Dutchman’s Secret

The Lost Dutchman’s Secret I’m pleased to announce that Book #5 in the Ever After Mysteries, The Lost Dutchman’s Secret by Rebekah Jones, is now available! To celebrate, the authors in the series have written a mini blog hop. A pair of villainous treasure hunters are trying to find Rebekah’s missing map. I don’t have it! At least… not anymore. Start the story HERE with Celebrate Lit Publishing, and visit all the websites to enter the giveaways on each! The Mystery of the Missing Map October was a crazy month for me. In addition to spending nearly every day peddling pumpkins and tossing around bales of straw at the family farm, I had three new books come out. I wrote more words in one month than I’d ever accomplished before, which left me a little befuddled about what was fiction and what was reality. So, when I woke up on November first, it was with a delightful sense of accomplishment. The fall sales at the farm were finished for another year. The books were published. My memories of the past month were a fuzzy blur, but I’d met all my deadlines and we’d saved the farm. Like a dollop of Read More

The Show Must Go On

  The Show Must Go On Going out to the Empire in 1926 wasn’t just a one-movie event. The films were part of an evening’s entertainment, which also included live music from the theater’s orchestra and Mighty Wurlitzer – the best theater organ in America. There was even more – various kinds of entertainment including a vaudeville troupe – musicians, dancers, comedians, actors, illusionists, and more. These troupes traveled from one theater to another by train. They did it all the time. It should have been routine.  Then there was the Great Train Derailment. It didn’t just go off the tracks, like an ordinary train derailment. This one flung its passengers through time and space. The famous New York talent agency, Tobler and Jones, had promised to send some of their best acts to accompany the Empire’s debut of Charlie Chaplin’s new film, The Gold Rush, but when they hadn’t arrived in time for rehearsal the previous day, I began to worry. An expensive long-distance telephone call assured me they were on their way. Then we heard about the Great Train Derailment. All over the country, according to the newsies, train passengers were showing up in the wrong places – Read More
