Secrets of Honor

I’m only a week late on getting this wonderful news out because:

1.      I’ve been sick and still am.  
2.     Millie is wearing me down to a frazzle.
3.     Millie doesn’t believe in ME being sick.
4.     Work is killing me and so are Millie’s demands.
5.     There was a three inch spider (think legs and all) in my utility (and no this isn’t a big fish story). It was so big that it started eating Millie and I had to pull her out of its jaws. (Yes, THAT is a big fish story.) Since that night, I’m freaked out, had nightmares, wear boots to take Mills through the utility to go outside, and when a drip of water fell off the eaves of the house in the early morning, I may have screamed like a girl and may caused other people's dogs to bark incessantly. It was a really big deal—the spider. I don’t know what kind it was: tarantula, wolf spider or Spideyman gone really wrong, but it's dead.
I can’t write about it anymore—so let’s move on.

Carol Kilgore has a NEW Book out called SECRETS OF HONOR
By the end of a long evening working as a special set of eyes for the presidential security detail, all Kat Marengo wants is to kick off her shoes and stash two not-really-stolen rings in a secure spot. Plus, maybe sleep with Dave Krizak. No, make that definitely sleep with Dave Krizak. The next morning, she wishes her new top priorities were so simple. 

As an operative for a covert agency buried in the depths of the Department of Homeland Security, Kat is asked to participate in a matter of life or death—locate a kidnapped girl believed to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas. Since the person doing the asking is the wife of the president and the girl is the daughter of the first lady’s dearest friend, it’s hard to say no. 

Kat and Dave quickly learn the real stakes are higher than they or the first lady believed and will require more than any of them bargained for. The kicker? They have twenty-four hours to find the girl—or the matter of life or death will become more than a possibility. 

Who is this Carol that I speak of?
Carol sees mystery and subterfuge everywhere. And she’s a sucker for a good love story—especially ones with humor and mystery. Crime Fiction with a Kiss gives her the latitude to mix and match throughout the broad mystery and romance genres. Having flexibility makes her heart happy.

  2. Yay for Carol! Looks like a great book.

    I'm so sorry you've been sick! Hope you're better soon.

    Yes! Spiders. We started seeing a couple of really large ones indoors and I called our exterminator to come do a spray. Haven't seen any in a week now. :)

  4. The book sounds great!! Congratulations to Carol!!

    We used to have giant wolf spiders out in WA. First time I saw one I screamed bloody murder. *shudder* They are impervious to Raid too. I would invest in a can of Spider Not. That stuff works wonders. I'd hit the foundation outside all the way around in spring and fall and that helped keep them out.

  6. I'm so sorry you're sick and that your dog won't give you a break. My dog doesn't understand the concept of sickness or early morning or late nights or thunder...
    I hope you feel better soon!
    And congrats Carol!

  10. Thank you for sharing! It's been a crazy two weeks, and I'm way behind in getting over here. The spider story freaks me out. Hate them - and that's an understatement. So happy Millie is safe :)
