All of Cate’s problems are in her head. That may be her greatest strength.
Cate Duncan is a promising young therapist, dedicated to her work. But after her mother’s suicide, she is seized by a paralyzing depression. To save her job, Cate agrees to enter a program with Dr. Angeline MacGregor, run by her stern son, Ben, and housed in a repurposed church. Cate doesn’t quite understand what the program entails, but she soon learns that the skills she will develop there may not only help her learn how to cope with her own problems, but will also lead her to a much greater purpose.
The MacGregor Group is a collection of alternative healers whose unconventional approaches include crystals, aura reading and psychics. They know that their life’s work invites skepticism, and welcome the chance to prove naysayers wrong. But they need the unique abilities that Cate can bring, and as she slides ever closer to her own abyss, they will do everything in their power to protect Cate from those who wish her harm―including herself.
A powerful novel of suspense and a wildly inventive start to this paranormal romance series, ALL THE BROKEN PLACES engages readers with its striking blend of the supernatural and the psychological.
Cate's enemies aren't just surrounding her—they're inside her head.
Therapist Cate Duncan has just accepted a job with the MacGregor Group, a unique collective of alternative healers. She’s excited by the prospect of honing her empathic healing techniques among others like herself—aura readers, telepaths, crystal healers, and more. The fact that Cate just started dating Ben, her magnetic new boss, is an added bonus.
Before Cate can settle into her new routine, the poisoning of a prominent neuroscientist draws the entire MacGregor Group into both a federal investigation and an even more insidious threat. Protected by Ben’s former Marine Corps unit, Cate and her colleagues must use their alternative healing methods to solve the crime as their patient clings to life. The responsibility of discovering crucial information falls to Cate and her parapsychological powers.
But for Cate, unraveling the mystery means reopening wounds that had just begun to heal—and in the environment of the Marine Corps unit, differences between Cate and Ben become clearer, straining their budding romance. When a new crisis looms, Cate must trust in her colleagues’ gifts and the strength of Ben’s love, finding the courage to confront her deepest and most terrifying demons—or her own life will be at risk.
All the Light There Is
Psychotherapist Cate Duncan is done with danger. Her whirlwind weeks of training at the MacGregor Group’s parapsychology clinic, while exhilarating, have also brought one crisis after another. So when their research colleague Skeet offers Cate and her boss-turned-boyfriend Ben some time away at his secluded hunting lodge, even though it’ll be a working vacation, they jump at the chance.
But the idyllic Mercier Lodge is teeming with secrets. An aura reader and a telepath who work with Skeet reveal his unorthodox research methods, triggering the MacGregor Group’s suspicions. Then there’s the matter of a tragic death that occurred at the lodge over a year ago, and how it connects to unsolved mysteries from Cate’s past―mysteries she may not be ready to confront.
As they delve into Mercier’s unsavory history, Ben and Cate stick close together, trusting in their love for each other to keep them safe. But when a plot separates them, Cate must rely on the MacGregor Group’s paranormal abilities, some surprise allies, and her own determination to track Ben down and crack Mercier’s mysteries before the strange place claims any more victims.
I was so excited last week to reveal the cover and book description for ALL THE LIGHT THERE IS, the third and final book in The Healing Edge paranormal romantic suspense series! My publisher is doing a major price promotion in early May for the first two books in the series, so readers can get caught up in time for the release of Book 3 on 9.12.17.
Who designed the your book covers?
My publisher, Diversion Books, creates truly stunning book covers. I am in love with the beautiful artwork they put together for The Healing Edge Series.
What book are you reading now?
I just started "Predator's Salvation," the final book in the Gemini Island Shifter Series by one of my all-time favorite authors, Rosanna Leo. I have enjoyed this series so much, and I can't wait to discover how the story ends!
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I've always been a voracious reader, but the desire to write a novel just hit me out of the blue several years ago. It was completely unexpected. All at once, I felt that I had a story to tell, and the compulsion to write it grew until I had my first draft down on paper.
If any of your books was made into a film who would you like to play the lead?
In consideration of the inevitable movie deal (!!!), I have given this question a lot of thought! I keep my Dream Casting ideas on my Pinterest page. My current favorite to play Cate, the heroine of The Healing Edge Series, is Dakota Johnson, although I can also picture Kat Dennings or Lola Kirke in the role. I was thinking of Joe Managiello for hero Ben, but a fan suggested Chris Pratt would be perfect for the part, and I can't disagree!
