Special Feature:

Suggested Reading Order

Finally! A reading order that blends the Truth in Lies and That Second Chance series.

I’ve talked to many readers who don’t understand how the series fit together. It only seemed appropriate that I explain:

So click on the picture to see the list and print if you want.

Happy Reading, and I’ll see you in Magdalena!

Grandma lived with my Aunt Marie and together they made cavatelli and something else we called “hats” and I still don’t know the real name for “hats”. When we visited, all four of us kids couldn’t wait to try making cavatelli. The trick was in the way you rolled the cut dough with your index and middle finger. By the twentieth one, I was ready to be done. Not Grandma. On and on she went, just like she’d done for a good part of her eighty-plus years. But there was nothing like the smell of a good meatball frying in the kitchen. Have you ever tried brown meatballs? Aunt Marie fried them, no baking in those days, and she’d leave four out of the sauce, one for each of...
