Left Hanging (Caught Dead in Wyoming, Book 2)

 A rodeo producer, dead in the bull pen. Accident or murder? 

Elizabeth "E.M." Danniher, until recently a top-flight national TV journalist, is regaining her footing after a dizzying demotion to tiny—and entirely foreign to her—Sherman, Wyoming. But her equilibrium faces a major challenge.

The apparently accidental death — under the hooves of bucking bulls — of a rodeo producer preparing for Sherman’s annual Fourth of July Rodeo catches the attention of Elizabeth and her KWMT-TV colleague Mike Paycik. Not only is it a major story about the region’s biggest event, but it’s being outrageously mishandled by the station’s egocentric anchor.

As Elizabeth and Mike dig, area rancher Thomas Burrell joins the investigation, providing background on suspects — and there are plenty because the victim had many enemies. But Tom has divided loyalties, so Elizabeth doubts his commitment to finding the truth no matter what. Not to mention that both Mike and Tom show an interest in her ... they might be okay with working together in a peculiar triangle, but the points of this geometry is starting to get under her skin.

… From the tip of the rodeo queen’s tiara, to “agricultural byproducts” ground into the arena dust, Elizabeth receives a murderous introduction to the world of rodeo.

“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”

Seasons in a Small Town – Summer

“A great read. The town of Drago has insinuated itself into my heart.” -- Vine Voice

Pretty, popular Jennifer was prom queen in small-town Drago, Illinois, the girl who had it made. That is, until her no-good ex-husband left her with a child to raise and a household deep in debt. And the family seemed somehow to blame the breakup on her. But Jennifer steeled herself to the challenge and vowed to show them all, especially her vulnerable young daughter. Who knew that a dusty old car dealership might turn out to be her saving grace.

That and Trent Stenner, her ex’s brother and a former NFL football star turned successful executive. He, too, sees value in the car lot that once had been a thriving family business. Jennifer’s goal is to sell the dealership, but Trent has another strategy. He can see the whipsmart Jennifer at the helm of the town’s vital enterprise, but he knows she’ll resist any move seen as charity. And he admires that same independent streak he sees in her athletic daughter.

Can Trent and Jennifer save the family business without losing their wallets – and hearts?

Praise for the Seasons in a Small Town series:

Season in a Small Town -- Autumn 

"Funny, fresh and a good love story." -- 5* review

He sees what she's long hidden . . . especially from herself.

Meet Josh Kincannon, high school principal, single father of three, and thus, as he reminds himself ruefully, essentially celibate back into misty memory and forward into the foreseeable future.

After three months of trying to work with Vanessa Irish via phone and e-mails on a project to help tiny Drago, Illinois, Josh believes he has an accurate picture of Zeke-Tech's CFO:

Conscientious? Oh, yeah.

Intelligent? Absolutely.

Agreeable? Not so much.

Then he catches sight of her wild, vibrant robe and begins to wonder what other elements might form a portrait of Vanessa Irish. Every time she goes into her I'm-so-boring-I-disappear-against-white-walls act, he remembers that vibrant, wild fabric hanging on the corner of a door and he gets curious. 

And the more curious he becomes, the more he discovers about her that has him feeling things a whole lot hotter than curiosity. Things that shake up life as single parent to his three kids, scrape against his career as high school principal and -- oh, yes -- definitely threaten his stretch of celibacy.

Numbers, that's where Vanessa is comfortable. Not all this interaction with people that she's been pitched into. Especially interacting with Josh Kincannon. Why does he insist on drawing her into his small town, his life, his children? And the biggest question -- what kind of man is this, who not only looks at her, but SEES her, when that's the last thing she wants?

. . .  or is it?
