And now my weekly garden tip. Yeah not from me because my husband is the gardener in our family. I enjoy the garden. I write out in our garden in the summer. Okay my spring garden tip:

From the resident gardener, Ron. If you forgot to fertilize your lawn in the fall it is not too late. Do it in the spring. Watch the weather so you can take advantage of the April showers because it's best to do before a rainfall.

I am also sharing a recipe, not directly on the blog, but on my The After Work Cook. Check out Cajun chicken sausage with pasta.

Now for the goodies! 

I'm giving away a copy of my newest release Abandoned (book VI The Beckett Series)
(Signed print within the US and a eBook outside the US)
Glenna Beckett loves her family dearly, but being the youngest of six can be overwhelming. Moving across country helped her learn who she was outside the family. She’s built a successful business in the form of a quaint shop on Main Street of Calistoga, that sells a bit of everything vintage, the new age term for antique. What more does she need?

Then he walked into her shop. International playboy, Lance Gordon. After a whirlwind courtship he asks her to marry him. Burying a niggle of doubt in the pit of her tummy, she says yes. He’s even agreed to have the wedding in Brooklyn so her family can attend. But he never arrives.

Glenna refused to believe she’d been abandoned at the altar and asks her brother, Tyler, to contact an agent friend on the West Coast to search for Lance.

Patrick McGinnis can’t believe he’s walking into a prissy shop in the high end of the Napa Valley searching for a missing groom. The bride, Glenna Beckett, is everything he feared, drop dead gorgeous, and a spoiled brat. Not that he’d ever tell her brother that. He hates wild goose chases, and this mission is exactly that. Patrick’s certain the playboy fiancĂ© is off wooing some other delectable creature.

Unfortunately, once Patrick started to dig, he finds there’s more to the tale and it will take all his skills as an agent to keep Glenna safe. Especially when the case takes a turn and threatens the safety of his son, Finn.

Hi, Mary! Great to see you! I am trying to get grass to regrow in a couple of spots and definitely use your hubby's method of trying to get things down before it rains. Sadly, we aren't getting a lot of rain. Thanks for participating in this fun hop!

We seem to be getting more rain than we want. Every time I think FINALLY we can put the patio furniture out it rains... or snows! I just want spring.

I hope Ron's method works. Seems to for him, me I have a black thumb. Though I LOVE to sit in the garden and write.
