The Property Sisters of Montana Insider News


is available for PREORDER (ebook only) here: BOOK 1

This also means review copies will be available to those interested readers who reliably post reviews. I released my former “Deb Salonen Review Team” from service when I signed up to write three new books because I knew they wouldn’t see another book from me in over a year.

So, I’m starting from scratch. If you’re a reader who also posts reviews, please email me directly. I’ll submit your name to Tule. (I honestly don’t know how many review copies they release per book, but I’d love to have you in my corner, if possible.)

As promised, here’s a snippet from my newly revised Book 2: MEET ME IN MONTANA. As I said, this time, my editor loved my heroine but had issues with my hero, Trey Brandel. However, after some brainstorming with her, Trey and I reconnected, and we definitely fell in love.

      “Hello. Nice wheels. Is that a Cobra badge on the side?”
      “I was confused, too. I thought all Cobras were one-person race cars. This is a Mustang Cobra. The guy who delivered it wanted to tell me the car’s life history, but I had a stop to make on the way here. Apparently, there’s literature in the glove box, if you’re interested.”
      He shook his head. “That’s okay. My best friend from high school is a big car guy, though.” He fished his phone out of his shirt pocket. “Mind if I send him a shot?”
      “Go for it.” She started to step out of the frame.
      “No, no. Stay. Mike also appreciates beautiful women. He’s going to be beyond envious.”
      The praise made her happy—and helped ease her tension. Second thoughts had hit like a hurricane the moment she stepped into the shower. She’d been too busy to think all afternoon, but alone with her self-doubt she couldn’t dodge the barrage of negative thoughts and questions.
      You hate spontaneous, remember?
      How did you think you could pull this off?
      More importantly, why are you doing this?
      He’s leaving. You’re leaving. What’s the point?
      “Pose for me. Make him hate me.”
      She laughed. “That must be a guy thing. Okay. I’ll pretend you’re one of my sisters. We loved posing for pretend magazine shoots when we were kids.”
      She adjusted the hem of her skirt to show a bit of thigh and leaned sideways against the windshield, the back of her hand against her forehead, theatrically. “How’s this?”
      “Love it. How ‘bout some ‘bring-it-on’?”
      She parked her elbow on the roof of the car and leaned forward to show a little cleavage. “Bring what on, sir?”
      His laugh lightened the moment even more.
      That’s when the answer to her burning question hit her. Why am I doing this? Because I like him.

PS: the car in this book is a cameo courtesy of my hubby. He’s a car guy, too, remember?

Joe Kelly's back in town

Joe Kelly left home with two goals: make it big in the movie industry and forget about Lisa, the girl next door who broke his heart when she picked his twin brother to marry. Seventeen years later, he’s back—an acclaimed director reeling from a recent string of flops. Somewhere along the way, he lost his mojo. Maybe, just maybe, Lisa will help him reclaim it.

Lisa’s ready to fly

Lisa Malden fell in love with Joe in seventh grade, but Patrick, the more dynamic and charismatic of the Kelly twins, wooed her, pursued her, and proposed when she found out she was pregnant. He would have married her if his life hadn’t been cut short in a drunk driving accident. Seventeen years later, with her life at a crossroads, single mom Lisa fears history might repeat itself. Her son is in trouble. And her one conviction – that Patrick was the father of her child – could be a lie. 

Will the truth set them free or destroy their fragile peace and put the boy they both love at risk?

Are you ready for another whacky video?

So, my granddaughter, Poppy, turned 5 last week, and her mother (my daughter Kelly) loves to go all out. In this case, the surprise was not the party, but what happened at the party. You’ll see…


PS: Poppy picked out her cake, probably forgetting the tradition that started when she pushed her unsuspecting cousin’s face into her cake a few years back. I’m not here to judge. 😀

Last week’s Q&A was: Have you ever been fired or had to fire someone?

I have to say this was the most interesting Q&A yet! The divide between Yes and No was nearly equal, but those of you who answered YES included some really fascinating stories for me. I loved this! And my heroine, Ruby, feels completely vindicated. Thank you.

My two randomly selected winners this week are:

Gareth Elizey – YES
Jazzy – YES

(Gareth and Jazzy congrats. Please email me your pick of either a $5 Starbucks or a $5 Amazon gift card.)


This week’s Q&A: Will you watch the Superbowl? Y or N?

(Two winners will be chosen by random drawing to receive either a $5 Starbucks gift card or a $5 Amazon gift card. Please reply the usual ways: email or on my DebraSalonenAuthor Facebook page.)

Thanks for hanging out with me,


Next week: My covers are coming, my covers are coming…I think. And so are the RV pics. It’s a work-in-progress. LOL.
