Collect the secret words to enter to win a Lizzie prize pack at the conclusion of our tour. 


Okay, loves, now that we have the business out of the way, lets get to the good stuff today. Miss Gladys is taking over the blog. Do you think she’ll having anything nice to say about Lizzie (no, I don’t really think so…) 



First of all, I want to start by saying that this is not a gossip column. I don’t gossip. I merely keep people informed of what is happening in our lovely town of Brookdale.

New stores are opening in the town square, as people from the suburbs of Dallas move down here. It seems they prefer the peace and quiet of Brookdale to the hustle and bustle of a large city. The most recent store opening up is a little boutique near Delia’s Bakery. There is no name posted yet, but I have learned the owner’s name is Luna Draper. Honestly! What kind of airhead names their child Luna? Probably some crazy 60’s flower child, high on something. Never did understand what those fool hippies got from all those “recreational drugs”, as they called it. All that came of it is a bunch of children with weird names.

My dear friend, Amelia Crenshaw, recently announced that she was getting married again! I am so happy for her, as she has been alone for many years. No word on who the lucky man is, but I am sure he is a wonderful man.

Her daughter, Elizabeth, or Lizzie, as everyone calls her, is quite frankly just shameless. Kissing in public places! I swear, young people these days have no sense of decency. She has two men chasing after her: an FBI agent, T.J. Reynolds, or Roosevelt, whatever his last name is, and a millionaire, Jacob Mathias. Quite frankly, I think she should ditch the agent and marry Mr. Mathias. From what I have been told, his family is very prominent and very rich. It’s a shame she seems to be hung up on T.J., though. I have it from a very reliable source at the police station that the sheriff is thinking about hiring T.J., who is resigning from the FBI. Doesn’t it make you wonder why someone would resign from such an important position to work as a sheriff’s deputy in a small town? I wonder what happened to make him quit. Perhaps it had something to do with the death of that crazy half-aunt of Lizzie’s, Debra Crenshaw. And from what I’ve been told, someone stands to inherit a lot of money from that crazy woman. Care to guess who?


Be sure to stop by Erin’s post today to collect all the secret words. 

 secret word: kill



I have always loved to read, and carry a book with me wherever I go. I’ve written for several online sites, doing book reviews and author interviews. After graduating in 2000 from West Texas A&M with a Bachelor’s degree, I was a teacher for a while before deciding my destiny was to write, not to mold young minds. Writing for me is like taking an exciting journey, or going on a welty, as my parents say. I don’t know where my stories are going to take me. I just hang on and enjoy the ride.
