The 2017 Utah Readers Luncheon – Recap

This Week’s Quote:
“The unread story is not a story; it is little black marks on wood pulp. The reader, reading it, makes it live: a live thing, a story.” – Ursula K. Le Guin

This past weekend it was my honor and privilege to share a table with authors Judy Baker and Mary Martinez at the 3rd Annual Utah Readers Luncheon. We had a blast visiting and giving away prizes. And the guest speakers, RaeAnne Thayne and Jill Shalvis were both delightful and inspiring.

Mark your calendar for October 13, 2018. We’d love to have you join us next year!


Guest Author Mary Martinez

Please welcome guest author Mary Martinez as she shares her wonderful Romantic Suspense, the Beckett Series. Take it away, Mary!

The Beckett’s have a strong sense of family and honor.
When one of their own is threatened, their bond is as strong as a badge of steel.


Book I The Beckett Series

After two years undercover as an FBI agent to infiltrate a crime organization and discover the identity of a hit man, Tyler Beckett’s cover is blown. Tyler’s new assignment is to protect the only witness who can identify the mysterious killer. If only he didn’t find her so attractive. Each day it becomes harder to keep his objective, especially since he knows the interest is mutual.

Keira Cavanaugh is the only witness to a hit ordered by a crime boss.  The safe house is compromised and the same hit man shoots Tyler. Fearing Tyler is dead, Keira plans revenge on the crime organization. She must fake her own suicide in order to survive.

When Tyler discovers what Keira plans, he realizes he must stop her before he loses her for good.
