Introducing author Khristina Atkinson.

cj SezToday, I’m excited to introduce another author from the upcoming MysteryThrillerWeek annual event scheduled to take place on Facebook in February.

Remember to mark your calendars: During the week of February 12-22, 2017, about 200 authors in the mystery/thriller genre and every sub-genre, me included, will participate in blogs, readings, takeovers, and, drum roll here, giveaways. I think you’ll have fun connecting with favorite authors and reaching out to meet new ones, like this one:

Say hello to Mystery Thriller Week author Khristina Atkinson  

Today, Lyrical Pens is featuring Khristina's hopelessly, completely, MADLY in love, book one in her “Lovin’ Lawmen Series,

Khristina says the historical romance (and mystery) is set in her paternal grandfather's home state of Kentucky, and the story starts in 1876 in Bardstown, Kentucky. 

Here’s the gist of hopelessly, completely, MADLY in love . . .

Lexi Donovan leaves home to visit her grandmother when her crush, Cooper Grayson, returns to Bardstown, Kentucky.  He immediately asks her father's permission to court her after she's already accepted an engagement ring from her best friend, Silas Reilly.  Silas hasn't yet found the courage to speak with her father, Heath.  He's a brawny man with a fiery temper, who's extremely protective of his only child.
Lexi comes back to town with a new husband, Luke Weston, and is about to deliver the wonderful news he's going to be a father when a shot rings out.  Is one of the men who claim to love her trying to murder her husband?
