Again, fantastic job Theresa. You are great to work so hard on this. If only I had your organizational skills I might get more writing done. But ... You can get any of my Yellow Rose mysteries featuring adoption PI Abby Rose right now almost anywhere books are sold. And coming in May, the first in the "Cats in Trouble Mystery Series" will begin with "The Cat, The Quilt and The Corpse." (You can preorder on Amazon!)
