Pamela released Leaving Annalise on July 1, 2013. Leaving Annalise is the second volume in the (award-winning, bestselling, romantic, ghostly, hilarious, and smart) mystery/thriller series, Katie & Annalise, and the follow-up to Saving Grace. Watch for Missing Harmony, the third and final book in the series, in February 2014.
One unexpected and hotly fought-over little boy, two dead bodies, and a series of home vandalisms throw Texas attorney turned island chanteuse Katie Connell into a tizzy. Juggling all of this, Bloody Mary cravings, baggage, and the bad guys too, she waffles between the jumbie house that brought her back from the brink and the man she believes is the love of her life.

It is an exciting time and I am proud to be a part of it. It is amazing what has happened in the last year with your writing and I could not be happier for you. You work so incredibly hard at this, and the pay off is when strangers come up to you in stores in places like Syracuse New York and say ” I LOVED your book, you are amazing” how incredibly cool is that?
Go Pamela. Go
Thank you. It is pretty darn exciting!
