Top Pick-stampI’ve reached a milestone in my writing career.  Yippee!

HER PERFECT PROPOSAL, has received a 4 1/2 star TOP PICK review from Romantic Times Magazine for March:

“Humor takes precedence in Marshall’s romantic mystery.  Her aw-shucks dialogue and quotable catchphrases give a fly-on-the-wall perspective.  Her culturally opposite couple is genuinely lovable, while her returning and new co-stars are essential parts of the tale.”  Debbie Haupt RT Book Reviews
I almost fell out of my chair when I saw this review the other day.  To know that the efforts and time I put into writing this book was appreciated by someone outside of my family and friends, by someone who reads Special Edition after Special Edition for the top review magazine, R.T., is incredibly rewarding.
Her_Perfect_Proposal_170It was especially exciting to see the reviewer gave a nod to the humor I try to slip into most of my books.  There’s something about writing cop heroes that brings a little extra humor out of me, and thankfully, that didn’t go unnoticed.
So I’ve shared the back cover blurb before, but I’m going to show it again, as well as the UK and Australian cover versions of the same book.


Journalist Lilly Matsuda just writes headlines; she doesn’t make them. That is, until she runs afoul of Gunnar Norling while on assignment in the tiny town of Heartlandia. The handsome policeman intrigues more than Lilly’s investigative senses…but she isn’t going to let Gunnar’s megawatt smile or smoldering good looks melt her heart.

Gunnar isn’t a fan of people snooping around Heartlandia. He’s been sworn to secrecy about the town’s mysterious past, and he refuses to compromise that for anyone…even beautiful Lilly, who’s hot on the story’s trail. Besides, she’s not going to stick around forever, and Gunnar refuses to let his heart get trampled on—unless Lilly decides to put love first!










Aren’t all the covers adorable?  Truth be told, Lilly has short hair in the book, but the covers really capture the mood of this young couple finally making it to their happy ending. After the rocky ride they went through, they deserve it!

I hope you’ll consider reading and preordering this one!  And if you missed the first book in the series, it’s not too late to get A DOCTOR FOR KEEPS A_Doctor_For_Keeps_170

Have you reached any personal milestones in your life lately?

Until next time, make it a great one!
