To any authors/publishers/ tour companies that are looking for the reviews that I signed up for please know this is very hard to do. I will be stopping reviews temporarily. My husband passed away February 1st and my new normal is a bit scary right now and I am unable to concentrate on a book to do justice to the book and authors. I will still do spotlight posts if you wish it is just the reviews at this time. I apologize for this, but it isn't fair to you if I signed up to do a review and haven't been able to because I can't concentrate on any books. Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. I appreciate all of you. Kathleen Kelly April 2nd 2024

Secrets are burning out of control

After she broke his heart in college, Faye Walker is the last person fire chief Reese Bristow ever expected to see again, especially as his new EMT. But that's not Reese's only surprise. Faye has an eight-year-old son, Elliott, whose counseling at The Lemonade Stand shelter is her first priority.

It's nearly impossible to accept that she had a child with another man—and married that man—right after their breakup. Trusting Faye won't be easy. Especially when she reveals a secret about the boy that might tear them apart for good.

(Books released as of March 2017. Each can be read as a standalone.)


We just passed tax time and my preparer once told me, everything in my life is deductible because it all goes into my books. She reads my books. And while I don’t deduct even close to ‘everything’, her statement stuck with me because she’s right. My life goes into my books. So many times my mother will tell me she’ll be reading a scene and she’ll know what someone is going to eat before they get to that part. I don’t generally see this as I’m writing. I don’t purposely draw on things. But a writer lives her work.
A writer’s work is her life.
Unlike the normal course of events, In The Fireman’s Son, I was conscious of pulling on my life for one particular scene. It doesn’t actually happen on the page. Faye is telling Reese about something that happened. It sounds surreal. Readers might scoff. But I know, first hand, that it’s very real. That it did happen. Faye’s son, Elliott, suffers from sleep walking. With Elliott it’s a form of release from emotional stress. In one particular scene Faye is keeping him from pulling down curtains in his struggle to ‘get out’ – at the point out the window of his bedroom – but she tells of another time when the little boy was actually going to go over a balcony and had to be dragged back. She talks about his strength when he’s asleep and how pulling him back left bruises on his forearms.
I saw those bruises on the arms of someone I love dearly. I cried for little Elliott. And I gave him a happy ending, too – I promise.
