Remember writing doesn't love you. It doesn't care. Nevertheless, it can behave with remarkable generosity. Speak well of it, encourage others, pass it on. A. L. Kennedy

Yolanda Renee's new book is coming soon!! Murder & Obsession, third in the 'Murder' series. And I'm over at Misha Gericke's!

I'm actually not at home today...I'm over at MIsha Gericke's talking about settings...in novels generally and in my novella, Under the Tuscan Moon. Both Misha and I would love you to pop over after you read my post here...Thank you!

Today I have a special guest who needs no introduction, but just in case there's someone who hasn't met Yolanda yet...I'm helping her introduce her new cover to the blogging world. 


Flames burn between a hardboiled cop and a gifted artist, but soon extinguish as another man’s obsession ignites into an inferno of desire, driving him to destroy the object of his madness.

To be released March 10, 2016

As wedding bells echo like the ring of toasting champagne glasses in the ice carved mountains of Anchorage Alaska, detective Steven Quaid rehabs his grandfather’s cabin into a honeymoon cottage for his new bride.

When he returns from a hunting trip, Steven’s faced with five police officers, who “Want to talk.” Plagued by two unsolved murders, the Department is searching for answers.

The conversation comes to a deafening halt as the team finds a bloody crime scene in the bridal suite. "Where's her body?" is a question Steven cannot fathom. 

Steven’s jaw clenches and his heart races. Images of Sarah streak through his mind.

The silence breaks as an explosion of accusations vibrate through every fiber of his being.

Steven bolts…

Although running is never the smart thing to do, Steven’s not thinking clearly and his escape into the wilderness of the Brooks Range proves almost fatal.

This Steven Quaid mystery is both personal and heartbreaking.


   Yolanda Renee
At one time Alaska called to me and I answered. I learned to sleep under the midnight sun, survive in below zero temperatures, and hike the Mountain Ranges. I've traveled from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, and the memories are some of my most valued. The wonders, mysteries, and incredible beauty that is Alaska has never left me and thus now influence my writing.

Despite my adventurous spirit, I achieved my educational goals, married, and I have two wonderful sons. Writing is now my focus, my newest adventure!

You can find Yolanda at:

The first and second in the series have been proudly dressed in new covers too!

After a gritty detective becomes involved with a beautiful widow suspected of murder, rumor and obsession obstruct his quest for justice.

World damnation is a psychotic man’s goal, but two obstacles stand in his way, greed and a dedicated detective. 

Thanks for reading!
Do you like the new covers? 

And don't forget...only days away from Romantic February...on February 1, posts go live for the Lost & Found blogfest (sign up in my sidebar)...and the linky goes up for WEP's Valentine's blogfest. I hope you can join us for both!

And please pop over to Misha's now if you have a few moments!

  6. Wow! Love the cover and the blurb! Congratulations, Yolanda!
    See you at Misha's!

  7. Yay for Yolanda's trilogy covers! Such a great contrast between the snow and the blood. Awesome!

  8. Nice of you to show support for your friend Yolanda. Those seem like cool books Yolanda has written. It is nice of you to offer words of encouragement for bloggers interested in Lost & Found and the WEP challenges. Thank you.

    1. As bloggers we support each other Patrick. Not hard to support someone as lovely as Yolanda. Thanks for coming by!!

  9. Such great news to begin the year with. Nobody does murder and mayhem like Yolanda. The new covers look particularly awesome, too.

    Congrats to Yolanda! and best wishes for the success of the trilogy.

    1. Thanks for visiting and your kind words for Yolanda Nila!

  10. Great cover indeed. Congrats once more, Yolanda.

  11. No, running is never good. Congrats on the new covers, Yolanda.

  12. Yolanda's books are certainly gory. and running is certainly not good. I like the covers, similar but different.

  13. The cover is very striking, and apt for the genre. (Well, all of them!) Man, gut-wrenching book summary, with his bride getting (presumably) murdered. O.o
