Book Description: 
All Hannah needs is a nice and quiet vacation after her first year of teaching French at a high school. She joins her brother Ben for the summer in their mom’s log cabin in Arizona. There, she meets Josh again, Ben’s childhood friend from the Navajo reservation. The little boy from the rez has grown up fast, and Hannah can’t help but feeling more for him than just friendship.

But fate apparently has something else in store for her. And it’s not peace and quiet. Night after night, Hannah is plagued by strange nightmares about the past of Navajo Nation and terrifying shadows chasing her. They seem to come closer – and why is Josh always present in her dreams?
Sometimes, the past has a way of catching up with you.

Alleyway SPLAT! I mentioned Monday that I'd be posting today instead of tomorrow but never told you why. Well, some of you may recall approximately two years ago my daughter had reconstructive surgery on her right foot which equaled eight hours in the O.R., two weeks post-op bedrest, then two months in a cast, and three to four more months for full recovery. Yup. It's now time to do the left foot.

The first time she was 11 years old, just starting 6th grade. Now, she's 14 years old, hormonal, and has a social life. The next six months should be fun. *tosses confetti, which fails to float and lazily wafts to the ground. Wish me luck!!


  1. Awesome cover. Thanks for sharing it Sheri.

    And good luck with your daughter's surgery. I'll be thinking of you.

  2. Great cover!

    Hope your daughter fares well. I'll be thinking about you and your family.

  3. Nice cover. The story blurb is intriguing as well.

    And oh my...yeah, the hormones they be a-thang to contend with. But you are Sheri, Splatter extraordinaire. I think I saw you in a cape somewhere...I think :-) You and your family will be in my thoughts as each day is new day to press forward with her recovery.

  4. Oh, so sorry about your daughter! That's going to be tough on everyone. I'll be thinking of you both.

  5. Thanks for sharing the cover on your blog :) and good luck with your daughter's surgery!

  6. Ooo, the Navajo nation, this sounds good! And oh no, your teen is having surgery?! I'm sorry to hear that and I hope she recovers quick and is on her feet in no time. :)

    1. Thanks, Heather. I'm sure it will go fine, but her recover time is going to be long. Oh well...

  7. I simply want to tell you that I am all new to blogging and honestly loved this web page. Very likely I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You definitely have remarkable stories. Thanks a bunch for sharing your web page.

  8. The Navajo nation is intriguing. I lived in AZ for a long time, so I'd be interested to read this one.
    Thoughts and prayers for your daughter as she goes through her next surgery, Sheri.

  9. Ooh, this book sounds like it is going to be a great winter time read! I can't wait to get my hands on it! Blanket, chocolate, Navaho spirits...bring it on! Thanks for featuring it.
    Sending prayers for your family. If only the Bieb could put in an appearance while your daughter's on bed rest.

    1. It does sound like a great winter read!

      And thank you for your kind words for my daughter. I'm in the waiting room, right now. They took her in about an hour ago. We have approximately 5 to 6 more hours to wait. I brought me laptop to get some writing done, but I can't seem to think. LOL

  15. I have spent a bit of time in Arizona and it is rich with stories and such an inspiring location.

    So sorry to hear about your daughter. This will be a challenge for your family, but think of how happy she'll be down the road. :)

  16. Once again thanks for all the nice comments :) I truly hope my book will have captured the mood of Navajo Nation / Arizona (as I've never been there myself... I'm actually gonna visit that place for the first time this summer!) and I hope everyone will enjoy reading it. Hopefully the surgery on Sheri's daughter has also gone well, in the meantime!
