Anna loves her job as a high school English teacher until everything goes sideways. The one bright spot in her life is Titus Gains, the school counselor, who is there for her at every turn.

Titus’ boss complicates his ordered world when she tasks him with running a meeting that changes everything. How had he not noticed Anna earlier? Someone is out to destroy her, and he can’t let that happen.

As the head of the English department, part of Luke Harms’ job is to make sure everything runs smoothly. Things went haywire when Anna was put in charge of the big writing contest. Entries are missing, Anna appears to be in danger, and her job is on the line. Luke is investigating and wants to make things right for this woman he’s starting to care about.

Can a trio of school officials along with Nancy Daley, the town sleuth, stop the saboteur before it’s too late? And will Anna choose the right man, or lose them both?

Hi Kimberly! Welcome to the blog!

Q: Around here I like to say that reading is my superpower. If YOU had a superpower, what would it be?

Kimberly: Writing or listening.

Carrie: both excellent superpowers to have!

Q: Other than the Bible, what are five of your most cherished books?

Kimberly: The Princess by Lori Wick, Can I Get There By Candlelight (a kids book), Sophie’s Heart by Lori Wick, Any one of the O’Malley books by Dee Henderson, and Overjoyed a devotional book by multiple authors.

Carrie: The O’Malley books are enduring faves of mine!

Q: If I sneaked a peek in your purse right now (which I would never do, I promise!), what would it tell me about you? 

Kimberly: That I’m a practical, cautious, no nonsense, only the bare necessities kind of gal. 🙂 How’s that for a telling purse? lol

Carrie: haha!

Q: If Hollywood wanted to produce The Sleuth’s Dilemma as a movie, who would you want to be cast as the lead roles? 

Kimberly: Rachel Bilson would play Nancy and maybe Kirsten Dunst could play Anna. Carter could be played by Chris Pratt or Chris Pine.

Carrie: ooooo either of the Chris’s would be fabulous. Yes please!

Q: What is something God taught you while you wrote The Sleuth’s Dilemma

Kimberly: This isn’t necessarily a new lesson but something He often reminds me of—I need to write in conjunction with Him. In other words, He is my writing partner and I need to make room for Him and listen. I had a difficult time starting this book, but once I got going I probably had the most fun I’ve ever had writing a book.

Carrie: I love that ♥

Thank you so much for taking time to talk with me! 🙂 Before we say goodbye for today, tell us what‘s coming up next for you.

Kimberly: The next book in this series releases in November. I will have a Christmas novella releasing around the same time. Thanks again for having me! 🙂
