Snow resting on scattered rocks sprinkled throughout a black creek? Crocus’ bullying winter as they push their green through the white? The ‘roll down the windows and blast the playlist’ feeling that comes with the first seventy degree day of spring? Or the humid heat that lays thick on the shoulders of a woman as she watches the murder of her parents?
Welcome to the changing seasons of upstate New York in the romantic suspense, Black Creek Burning. I am visual and rely heavily on the picture an author creates. I believe readers should forget where they’re at when they read. Come…leave your computer and visit the lovely, heartwarming, tension building world of Black Creek Burning.
Brianna Chapman is the only witness to the murder of her parents…an arson that was meant for her. After several years, Brianna learns to cope by burying herself in her beloved teaching job by day and landscaping business by night. What she doesn’t count on is nationally renowned woodworking artist, Nathan Reed. He and his two adorable young nephews move into the run-down historical farmhouse behind her. Nathan pushes his way through Brianna’s hard shell and is determined to both win her heart and solve the murder.
The story takes place in the middle of scenic upstate New York near Seneca Lake in the fictitious small town of Northridge. Come join Nathan as he, “patiently transforms Brianna from an icy self-proclaimed independent into a woman willing to accept the love of a strong man and a family in need of a mother…” as said by EPIC Award Winning Author, Laurie Larsen. You’ll travel through three seasons with both the physical and metaphorical changes that occur in each. Enjoy a saucy stop in an Oregon tree house hotel and a sentimental trip to Niagara Falls.
