I am SO excited to share all the details about my upcoming release with everyone! First of all, the book's title is Twin Piques, and it will be released on January 7th, which is just three weeks from tomorrow! I had so much fun writing this book and I can't wait for readers to meet my twin heroines, Willa and Sloane Tobin.

Check out this gorgeous cover art created for me by the incredibly talented Lyndsey Lewellen. Not only did she do an amazing job bringing my creative vision to life, she added many of her own special touches that really made the cover unique. I heart the purple and red color scheme! (FYI: Willa really does wear that cherry-printed dress in the book, and it plays an important role in the story!)  

If you want to know more about Twin Piques, you'll find the blurb below the cover art.

Forensic accountant Sloane Tobin and kooky pet psychic Willa may have the same face, but that’s the only thing these identical twins have in common.

How she can read the hearts and minds of animals has always been a mystery to Willa, and her rotten luck with men is equally baffling. Although she’s been looking for “The One” for what feels like forever (A teenage marriage to a French mime and dating a guy named Spider seemed like good ideas at the time!), optimistic Willa refuses to give up on love. When she meets Brody, the handsome rose expert hired to save her grandmother’s garden, she’s instantly smitten, but why does he keep sending her mixed signals? Does he return her feelings, or is their attraction all in her fanciful head?

Unlike her twin, Sloane has zero interest in romance. Her passion is her job, where she uses her gift for numbers to take down slimy embezzlers and asset-hiding spouses. When she’s assigned two high profile cases, Sloane feels confident the promotion she’s been angling for is within her grasp. But will her plan to climb the corporate ladder be thwarted by difficult clients, her co-worker-with-benefits, or most surprisingly of all her own sister? And how’s she supposed to stay focused on the drama at work when her childhood friend, Gav, moves in next door and the spark between them becomes impossible to ignore?

To get what they both want, can Willa and Sloane band together and rely on each other’s strengths? Or will their differences drive them apart once and for all?

I hope you'll add Twin Piques to your TBR pile in 2015! The plan is to release both the e-book and the paperback on 1/7/15, so my lovely readers will have options.

Before signing off, I want to give a special shout-out to my friend, Karan, at Bliss Book Promotions. She is responsible for the fabulous new look here at Books by Banister, and I am so grateful for her help. Don't you just love the glittery backdrop, the new header, and the cute, little, illustrated version of me?

I like nothing better than hearing from my followers. So, let me know what you think of Twin Piques, my new blog, etc. in the comments below! Thank you for visiting BBB and being so supportive of my work. Happy holidays to all!
