Sorry! Just found this message. Mistletoe Mayhem and Pecan Pie are novellas (shorter stories) that were released only as e-books, but they are side stories that do not have to be read in order to keep up with the main stories. Love, Luck, & Little Green Men is available in paperback on the Amazon and Barnes & Noble websites. It's a very different story than my usual thing - a little bit of fantasy and a lot of romance. Thanks for your interest in my books!
So glad you enjoyed it!
Need help with the Tax Series...Mistletoe Mayhem, Little Green Men and Pecan Pie are not to be found. Do you have a site I can buy? Are they "extras" that don't have to be read in order with the rest...HELP! Thanks!
Finished "Dead as a Door Knocker." As an extreme cat lover, loved Sawdust! So looking forward to "Dead in the Doorway".
That gave me a giggle. Thanks, Areta!
