Featured: Bridges, Books and Bones by Pat Nichols
Emotionally gripping, heart-warming story of big dreams, small-town life, and the love of family.
Following the premier of her first movie role, Rachel Streetman Bricker flies to romantic Venice, Italy, to star in a major motion picture.
The six-week trip forces her to face the grim truth. She’ll spend her first wedding anniversary an ocean away from Charlie.
Adding to her anxiety, a ruthless publicist initiates a social media fiasco that threatens her reputation in Willow Falls, the town she’s grown to love.
When Rachel befriends her female costar’s teenage daughter and learns how her mother’s lifestyle affects her family, she questions if living the dream comes at a price she’s unwilling to pay.
Rachel’s twin, Emily Hayes can’t get a break. The release of her second novel about Willow Falls is upstaged when a bulldozer unearths a skull and buried bones.
The discovery compels curious residents to set up camp at the dig site. After a crime investigation television crew arrives on the scene, the sheriff recruits Emily and the new mayor to shadow the lead investigator, nicknamed She Dragon.
In a town where everyone knows everyone’s business, will outsiders, a decades-old letter, and rumors from the past help solve the crime or force the most vocal resident to flee from shame?
Meet Pat Nichols:
My writing journey began nine years after I retired from a corporate career with Avon Products.
Now I’m proving it’s never too late to follow your dreams. I’m married to my high-school-sweetheart, am the mother of two and grandmother of four.
One precious granddaughter lives with the angels. I was born in Illinois, grew up in Orlando, and have called the Atlanta area home since the eighties.
Most days you’d find me in my favorite recliner writing on my laptop. When I’m not writing I enjoy reading, tackling jigsaw puzzles or sudoku, watching movies, and spending time with family and friends.
Although we love dogs, especially black labs, our pets now consist of squirrels scampering across our deck, deer traipsing through their back yard, and an occasional rabbit peeking out from the shrubbery.

Review by Lynn M. Worley:
Pat Nichols has a way of making each character so special that you fall in love with every one of them.
You can’t wait to see what happens to them next! Which did cause me to stay up much later than I’d planned on multiple evenings! I’d so to the first page of the next chapter on my Kindle so I could sync it and read the first few lines and not be able to stop reading!
I’ve never been one to want to travel far from home but when the author’s character got a movie roll that meant filming in Venice, the descriptions of the city brought it to life for me.
Of course there had to be a mystery in Willow Falls. What fun would there be if everything went along smoothly for everyone!
The author has a masterful way of giving you enough clues so that you think you know what’s going to happen only to throw a curve and you find out you were totally off the mark.
I, for one, am so glad the author decided to come out retirement and start writing! Each of her books is so very special and gives the readers new friends! T
he hardest part is waiting to see what happens to them next time around!
There had better BE a next time around!
