Sleeping with the Lights On

On the lighter side of suspense, fifty-year-old Sandra Holiday doesn’t have her love life or her career in order . . .

After two failed marriages and countless relationships, Sandra Holiday thinks she’s met the man to end her years of less than perfect choices; choices that not only derailed her travel-related career plans but also left her single and broke.

Carson Holiday, a Las Vegas country crooner with swoon-inducing good looks, spent his adult life pursuing a recording contract and love, never holding on to either. After eighteen years, he drops back into Sandra’s life, reigniting an attraction he can’t deny.

When Carson reappears, Sandra must choose again.  Only this time, nothing’s as it seems.  A secret admirer, a redheaded stalker, and an eccentric millionaire throw her on a dangerous path, with Carson her only truth.

As life confronts her with yet another turning point, will her decisions find her eternally sleeping with the lights on – or will she finally discover a way to turn them off?

RT Book Reviews: Cheers to Whiteside for writing a heroine who exists outside of conventional romance novels in terms of age and marital status…novel is written with a pleasantly light sense of humor…

The Morning After

Hee-haw, y’all. My western novella is sexy, cowboy fun . . . it would have to be with a red-headed cowboy!

Can there really be love at first sight?

Abigail Martin doesn’t think so. Unless the sexy redheaded stranger she wakes up with the morning after her best friend’s wedding is telling the truth.

Bobby Stockwood fell cowboy-hat-over-boot-heels for the brown-haired beauty, and married her in an impromptu wedding ceremony.  Now he just has to convince his new bride that the morning after can be the first day of the rest of their lives.

But just when Abigail starts believing the fairy-tale is real, she finds out exactly who Bobby is, and the walls of make-believe start crumbling down.

If you like contemporary, down home western romances blended with laugh-out-loud humor, you simply must check out THE MORNING AFTER by Brenda Whiteside. You will not be disappointed, especially since this story starts out like a firecracker going off in Sunday church services. THE ROMANCE REVIEWS, Top Pick, 5 Stars

And you can get lots of Honky Tonk fun with the anthology.

If you like heartwarming historicals set in the 1940s, you’ll love the family drama and romance of . . .

My shortest novella, which took the most research, is a tale of the bond between women that spans nearly sixty years.

Amanda in the Summer

Three generations of women…and the secret that strengthens their love.

A line of women, all named Amanda, stretches back for generations. Each with her hopes, her joys, her pain—each pouring out her heart in correspondence with a dear family friend who shares their lives, understands their loves, and joins in their sorrows.

But within the correspondence lies a secret. And as the youngest of the Amandas retraces the journey through the years—beginning in post-war America and following through to modern day—the letters reveal, layer by layer, the Amandas who came before her. Soon, the truths and lies hidden in the letters lead her down a path of self-discovery that forges a bond between her past and future.

“Evocative and thought-provoking. AMANDA IN THE SUMMER exposes love’s inexplicable complexities.” ~TAMARA HOGAN, AUTHOR

DIVAS OF DESIRE BLOG: This is a story of mothers and daughters, love and friendship, and the decisions we all have to make. I recommend Amanda in the Summer to readers who enjoy woman’s fiction written with a light touch.

STILL MOMENTS MAGAZINE: Letters that take a reader through the years. A short story, yet engaging with interesting characters and family connections. Thoroughly entertaining.
