Ceeree Fields

Genre:
Romantic Suspense
Hunting a killer is easy. Learning to love is hard.

Josephine 'Jo' Rayburn has no luck with love. Between the demands of her job as a homicide detective, finding the perfect yarn for her knitting projects, and her nosy family, she doesn't have time to find her happily ever after, nor does she really believe it exists. Until she's assigned to the Gravedigger task force where she meets Rhysian 'Rhys' Harrison, the sexy Coroner's assistant.

Rhys Harrison thought he had found love with the perfect woman. But his parents' deaths forced him to choose between his fiancée and caring for his brother, he chose his brother. His only regret, the medical degree he abandoned to work in the Coroner's office. When the Gravedigger leaves his latest victim at the gates of a cemetery, Rhys and Jo are thrown together, her prickly personality interests him, but it's her deeply hidden romantic side that captivates him.

After one of the task force members is shot, Rhys's fears of losing Jo, like he's lost so much already, threaten to rip them apart. Can she convince him that love is worth having no matter the risk? Or will he play it safe, leaving before his heart becomes too attached?

    1. In my New Adult Fantasy series I use a lot of the Dutch/German words to name villages and such.

      As for funny stories. The language is fun to mess with as are the shop owners.

      I had an assistant at one of the shops panic once. I was trying to explain to her that my mother-in-law wanted something specific but my Dutch wasn't good enough at the time so I was using bits of Dutch and English. I got flustered as the girl didn't understand.

      It's never good when I get flustered. Instead of using Schoonmoeder which is the word for mother-in-law I used moeder-in-de wet.

      Moeder-in-de wet literally translates to mother-in-law in English but actually in Dutch means that my mother is in law enforcement. Which sent the poor shop assistant into a panic and racing for the back. Her English wasn't that great so even trying to clarify it as she was backing away from me didn't help.

      Luckily, the shop owner spoke English and he had a HUGE laugh about it. Of course, my mom-in-law came in and they had another laugh as the entire story came out in Dutch. So now my mom-in-law refers to herself as moeder-in-de wet when she talks to me.

      And I use pieces of my life throughout my books because my family is full of fun characters.

    1. I have a few books self-published in the New Adult Fantasy genre...not glow-y mage based. Action/adventure with romance set in future America which doesn't exist anymore.

      As for interesting, I'm the quiet person in the corner taking notes at all the fun stuff around me and making up stories as I watch people go by. I never get the stories right because, okay, yes sometimes people stop and ask me what I'm doing and I tell them. Then they want to know their story... which can be entertaining as they love to listen and then correct me.

      I still use my version of the story because it's way more interesting.

      For instance, seeing a young man walking a seventy-year-old woman out of the library and thinking he works for the secret police and he's captured a spy. Instead of him being there to pickup his grandmother. The grandmother liked the spy story too and started posing like the Charlie's Angels. Which made the grandson turn beet red.

    1. Thanks, Sherry! The title had many swaps but I kept settling on this one because it fits the bad guy to a tee. And as I just re-read it again last week I agree with you. I love these characters.
