JUNE BRINGS A PRE-ORDER LINK FOR ONE DARK WISH AND A RECIPE FOR STRAWBERRY PIE!
“Twisty plots, fantastic characters, and pitch-perfect pacing. Fabulous!” ―ALLISON BRENNAN, New York Times bestselling author
Her life must be forfeit for his to be redeemed
Historian Sarah Munro is not used to being shot at, but that’s just what happens while she’s poking around cemeteries on Georgia’s Isle of Grace, searching for the key to a centuries-old cipher. Her quest has unwittingly drawn the attention of two deadly enemies intent on destroying each other―and anyone who gets in their way.
Ex–Green Beret Major Nate Walker is on a mission of his own: to restore the honor of his men. To do that, he is required to stop Sarah―or one of his own men will die. Caught in the middle of a deadly rivalry, Nate can’t afford to trust the woman standing in his way. But his heart says he can’t afford not to…
ONE DARK WISH, the second book in my Deadly Force series, is a fast-paced story filled with all the staples of a romantic suspense, including a race through the historic city of Savannah and discovering hidden tombs in a long-forgotten cemetery, as well as sexy times. Yet Nate and Sarah do have a few moments to pause, reflect, and figure out what to do next. I guess you could call these “dates”. lol
On one of these dates, Nate buys Sarah a slice of strawberry pie. Being from Boston, Sarah has never had a fruit pie that includes cointreau, kirsch, and whipped cream. And she falls in love. 🙂
I’ve included the recipe below for Sarah’s Strawberry Pie. I hope you love it, and ONE DARK WISH, as much as she does!
1 9” pre-baked pie shell
2 pints fresh strawberries, washed and hulled
1 envelope plus 1 ½ teaspoons unflavored gelatin
¼ cup cold water
¾ cup warm water
1 cup sugar
¼ cup kirsch
1 Tablespoon Cointreau
Slice each berry into 3-4 lengthwise slices. Blend enough of the berries to make 1 cup of berry puree. Chill remaining berry slices.
In a small bowl, combine gelatin and cold water, stirring to dissolve. Set aside.
In a saucepan, add ¾ cup warm water and berry puree. Stir until mixture boils. Add sugar until dissolved and transfer puree to a medium bowl.
Add gelatin/water mixture to berry puree and stir until dissolved.
Strain berry puree through a fine-meshed strainer to remove seeds.
Partly fill a large bowl with ice and put medium bowl on top. Stir until mixture thickens into a syrup.
Stir in Kirsch, Cointreau, and the remaining chilled berry slices.
Mix well but gently and turn into the prepared pie shell. Chill for at least 4 hours.
Serve with whipped cream.
