Lingering Touch

Today’s book for #ThrowbackThursday is the final installment of The Summer Park Psychics trilogy, Lingering Touch. This is by far the most suspenseful and action-packed of the three books. I had learned so much by the time I wrote it, and learned even more after publishing it.

Ever since I read the pivotal moment of “the flight of the queens” and Ruth’s hatching in Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonriders of Pern series in several books from different points of view (POV), I dreamed of exploring that creative technique in my own stories. With Whispering Hearts and Lingering Touch, I took my first plunge into writing stories that ran in parallel to each other. You’ll see conversations in each book from the different characters’ POVs, getting a much deeper view into what was going on during those moments.

Could I have done it better? Undoubtedly. But the knowledge I gained, and the extra time spent with characters I love was absolutely worth it. I have to say that I consider Lingering Touch to be the strongest book in the trilogy. I hope you’ll give it a chance!


The memory of his touch has never left her heart…or her body.

Happy Book Birthday, Lingering Touch! I’m so proud of you… *sniff*

Seriously, I am so proud of this book. I wanted to make sure it stood on its own, even as the last in this three-book story arc that introduces the world of The Summer Park PsychicsLingering Touch furthers the strong characters and relationships from the first two books, introduces new characters for you to love (and hate), and has twists that even my editor didn’t see coming! I hope it surprises and delights you as well and can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it.

Thank you, readers!

Lingering Touch Backstory —The Limo

I have a tradition with The Summer Park Psychics. Whenever there’s a new release, I like to write a little backstory piece about that title. For Lingering Touch, I decided on a moment that takes place right before the action of that book.

We learn in Wandering Soul that Garrett was concerned enough about Elsa’s safety to hire a private investigator, Finn Connelly, to look into her new roommate, Dante Lucerne. Neither Finn nor Garrett know that Elsa is psychic and actually brought Dante forward through time to save his life.

Finn is Garrett’s best friend, and as we see very quickly in Lingering Touch, Finn is also Jazz’s ex. He and Jazz did not part on amicable terms.

While running down clues about Dante, Finn stumbles across more than he expected—a deeper threat to Elsa from a different suspect. The first vision that gives Finn a clue about the danger takes place in the limo Elsa hired to take her and Dante home the night she brought Dante forward through time.
