As long as we have known one another (and in Brigette's case her entire life), we have been connected in ways that might surprise an average citizen. Our loves include Lake Erie, boating, shopping, drinking good wine, and eating cheese in all its wonderful varieties. SUNNY SIDE UP is our first collaborative project. DEVILED, Book two in the Lake Erie Mysteries Series continues the adventures of Francie and June. Both books are available at Amazon.com
