Nicole Appleton’s life is finally perfect. With a sweet shop all her own and a handsome fiancé ready to walk her down the aisle, she couldn’t be happier. At least until she discovers that not only was she orphaned by a criminal legend, but the silent mastermind running the vast network has tracked her down. What could he want from her? And one of his associates may be closer than she thinks. Could he even be the man she’s supposed to marry?
Sheriff’s deputy, Josh Bennet, can’t wait to say ‘I do’ but the stranger stalking his bride-to-be has other plans. Josh has always depended on his strength and intelligence, but he’s failed to see the skeletons buried in his hometown or to keep the women he loves from slipping through his fingers. After all, Josh lost his first wife to illness. Will he lose his fiancée to murder now that she’s pushed him away? What will he have to give up to make her believe he’s the good guy? He wants to be writing his vows not planning an escape, but if they can’t find out the truth, it won’t just be their wedding plans getting cut short. It will be their lives.

Hi Allison! Welcome to the blog!
Allison: Bananas. I really only like the other two as desserts or juice.
Carrie: now i want banana bread….
Allison: Winter. I know that sounds crazy, but I was born up north. So far up north, that when we moved south, we went to school on a snow day because we didn’t know they were a thing.
Carrie: That doesn’t sound crazy at all. I had a similar experience when we moved from the Illinois/Wisconsin border to Kentucky – where they take a snow day if someone spits on the ground and it freezes 😉
Allison: Both. My dog is my best friend. Well, she’s everyone’s best friend, that is, but ever since my cat passed, I can’t open a book without being sad because my little guy isn’t there to crawl all over it. No house is a home without some fur babies scampering around.
Carrie: Awww i totally agree with that! Pets are the special-ist friends
Allison: Audiobooks. Definitely, audiobooks. I may have a problem.
Q: Around here I like to say that reading is my superpower. If YOU had a superpower, what would it be?
Allison:Flying. My non-superhero self is terrified of flying and planes, but I think, if I got bit by a radioactive bird or something and could suddenly take to the skies, I’d probably get over it.
Carrie: LOL! Yes! me too.
Q: Who is your favorite book character from childhood?
Allison: Lucy Pevensie from The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe. It was like I thought I was her. As I got older though, I started to see the Edmund in myself as I think we all should. It was so easy to be mad at him, until I realized his mistakes were not that dissimilar from my own.
Carrie: Oh boy, that’s so true!
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?
Allison: That I’m a hot mess. Seriously, you might need a hazmat suit to go digging in there.
Carrie: hahahaha! I hear ya.
Q: Some authors like to hide little things in their stories. Is there anything you have hidden in Dunked in Trouble?
Allison: Maybe. Wink wink. I’m a fan of a certain classic author. I like to put a tribute to her in every book. You’ll have to let me know if you guess what it is and who it’s for.
Carrie: ooo i’m intrigued…
Q: What do you most want readers to take away from Dunked in Trouble?
Allison: Never turn down a doughnut. Breakfast is my favorite meal and it often takes the place of lunch and dinner. And breakfast pastries…Mmmm. They’re my jam.
Carrie: Yummm… jam. (Can we be friends? I feel like we’re nearly the same person, except for the audiobooks & bananas lol)
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.
Allison: I’m not really a planner, but I’m sure that whatever comes next will be full of suspense, love, and—as always—food.
Carrie: my kind of book!
