Grieving with Sara

No story this week, instead I am taking this time to try to help an author friend. We’ll get back to the story next week, and I promise to make it as entertaining as possible, but for the moment I feel this is more important.


Sara Mills, has been dealt a blow--her wonderful husband, Keith, died April 7, 2009 from a massive heart attack.


Grieved by our friend's loss, many of us are doing a blog tour to show our support and love for Sara. In no way do we mean to trivialize Keith's death. Instead we want to honor this family and help to take up some of their burdens. You see Sarah’s second book just released and we’d like to help with the marketing and promotion so that Sarah can focus on Isaiah, Laura and Julia who are suddenly without their father.


If you haven't heard, Sara writes wonderful mysteries. If you’ve been following along and enjoying Anne’s adventures, these may be right up your alley. Her books, Miss Fortune and Miss Match feature a female PI in 1947 New York.


Released through Moody Press, they are on shelves NOW!


Please, take this opportunity to support a friend, a writer, a grieving family and order a copy of Sara's books! Visit her website or drop by Facebook and befriend her!

Miss Fortune - Allie Fortune 


Series #1

By Sara Mills / Moody Publishers


In 1947 Allie Fortune is the only female private investigator in New York City, but she's kept awake at night by a mystery of her own: her fiance

 disappeared in the war and no one knows if he's still alive. Until Allie finds out, she will have no peace. When there's a knock on her office door at four in the morning, Allie suspects trouble as usual, and Mary Gordon is no exception. Mary claims someone is following her, that her

 apartment has been ransacked, and that she's been shot at, but she has no idea why any of this is happening. Allie takes the case, and in the process discovers an

 international mystery that puts her own life in danger. Meanwhile, the FBI is working the case as well, and she is partnered up with an attractive, single agent who would be perfect for her under other circumstances-if only she knew whether her fiance was still alive.

Miss Match - Allie Fortune Mystery Series #2

By Sara Mills / Moody Publishers


FBI agent Jack O'Connor receives a letter from Maggie, a woman he used to love, saying she's in trouble in Berlin. The FBI refuses to get involved, so Jack asks Allie Fortune to help him investigate. Allie and Jack pose as a missionary couple who want to bring orphans back to the United States. A child finds important documents that everyone in the city - Soviets and allies alike - want for themselves. Maggie refuses to tell Jack what the documents are, saying if things go wrong, they are better off not knowing. Through the course of the search, Allie's past is brought back to her, half a world away from home.
