Legacy of Faith: Book 5 in the award winning Jenna’s Creek Series

In a remote farmhouse during the worst blizzard in Ohio history an old man falls down a flight of stairs to his death. Melody Knauff cannot accept her strong, larger-than-life grandpa slipped and fell and died like a feeble old man. Not when everyone in the house had a reason to want to see him at the bottom of the stairs. But did they want it enough to commit murder?

The more Melody learns about her beloved grandpa’s past and the secrets he hid for sixty years, the more she wonders if she knew him at all. Who was he? Was he a thief and a liar who was killed to preserve his secrets, or was he the strong man of faith Melody thought she knew? She can’t rest until she finds out what happened the morning the blizzard struck, even if it means becoming a target herself.

A year and a half after a robbery and assault in a motel room sent Melody’s friend and confidante Christy Blackwood home to Jenna’s Creek, she is ready to move on with her life. Christy hasn’t yet forgiven her mother for the sins that ripped their family apart, but holding them against her is getting harder and harder to do. When she runs into Jarrod Bruckner again, she realizes walking away won’t be as easy as she hoped.

Despite her best efforts not to, Christy falls hard for the handsome and charming attorney. He is everything she always thought she wanted. History has proven, though, she can’t trust her own judgment when it comes to men. What makes her think this time is any different?

The closer Melody and Christy get to the truth about what happened the morning the Great Blizzard of 1978 struck, the higher the danger mounts. Secrets, lies, revelations, and the search for forgiveness and truth threaten to topple the lives of both women.

from the author:

I can’t remember ever wanting to do anything but write books. As a kid I knew I couldn’t make a living at it, but it didn’t stop me from dreaming of telling the stories of all those people living inside my head. You can say I’m a late bloomer. My first book, Streams of Mercy, was published the year I turned 40. Most of my books are contemporary romance or women’s fiction with a healthy dose of mystery and humor. I have always been intrigued by small town scandals and love incorporating them into my stories.

My husband Ralph and I live in southern Ohio with our rescue pup Wyatt who I named after one of my favorite characters in my Jenna’s Creek series. You’ll have to read the series to find out who.

The people in my head, they’re still there. As I continue to balance life with writing I’ll strive to give them voice and bring those stories to life. Drop me a line anytime at and friend me on FaceBook.
