One look, a passionate love . . . and then they part . . . Forever?

Before the bestselling and award-winning Wyoming Wildflowers saga began, there was another love story, one that laid the foundation for all those that came after. A love between a cowboy and an unexpected woman. A love at first sight ...

Ed Currick’s and Donna Roberts’ worlds couldn’t have been any more different – a rancher from Wyoming and an up-and-coming Broadway musical actress on a national tour. What could have been a momentary encounter sparks desire . . . and more. But can there be anything but heartbreak ahead when they have only days before their dreams pull them apart? 

Explore this opposites-attract romance between a cowboy and a stage actress as they find their hearts’ desires among the trees, the lights, the music and the magic of the merry Christmas season. Wyoming Wildflowers: The Beginning is the emotional, fun bonus prequel to USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn's acclaimed Wyoming Wildflowers contemporary romance series.

"Funny, entertaining, and full of surprises"..."Warms your heart"... "Joy"..."Wonderful love story"

Everything can change … except murder.

In the television production world, a body brace is used to shift the weight of the camera to the operator's shoulder. This allows for smoother shots and reduces stress and tiredness. And, at the small-town Wyoming TV station KWMT, cameras are older and bulkier than those used in network news-gathering. Almost as old as some of the equipment used in a historical re-creation that draws Elizabeth and friends into another investigation. When there’s rumbling underfoot, a body brace helps keep what’s important in focus.

Body Brace, Book 10 of the Caught Dead in Wyoming series, is a smart, surprising, fast-paced cozy mystery with humor. If you like quirky characters, hints of romance and twists you won’t see coming, then you’ll love USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn’s page-turner.
