A dead body in the woods … A rare sapphire is missing … The connection changes her life forever.

Olivia Penn is looking forward to spending time with her friends and family over the holidays in her hometown of Apple Station, Virginia. The Christmas season’s spirit has sparked a new romance, and all is looking merry and bright, until she is mistaken for a dead woman.

When a stranger makes a wild accusation involving the parents of the man she’s falling for, Olivia faces a no-win situation. As evidence mounts supporting the claim, a mysterious murder occurs near his father’s cabin that attracts the attention of the FBI. Wedged between mother and son, Olivia investigates to clear his family’s name while matching wits with a legendary thief.

With the clock ticking, Olivia must set a trap using herself as the bait or the killer may disappear without a trace. Her new love hangs in the balance, and her life is on the line. Justice will hinge on sixty minutes and a phone call.

Will the call be answered? Or will the thief recover the sapphire and silence her forever?

If you like Clue, Nancy Drew, and small town, cozy mysteries with heart and humor, a charming cast of characters, and a twisty plot, you’ll love Under the Cocoon Moon, the third book in The Olivia Penn Mystery Series.


What are the 4 qualities of a good character?

Curiosity, courage, kindness, and self-awareness.

How do you feel about your life right now? What, if anything, would you like to change?

Life in Apple Station, Virginia, is good right now. I’m looking forward to the holidays, and perhaps the season’s spirit will spark a new romance. I can’t deny that I’m interested in someone, and I wouldn’t mind testing the waters to see if what I feel is mutual. Over the past month, we’ve met up for coffee several times at Jillian’s Cafe. I didn’t know him before moving back home, but we’ve grown close through some unique circumstances. After the New Year, I’ll be assessing my long-term career goals. Though I like what I do now as an advice columnist, perhaps it’s time for a change.

What do you consider the most important event of your life so far?

Without a doubt, that would be my mom’s passing. I was in my twenties and had just begun my first job at a regional newspaper. Though she had been sick for a short while, you can never fully prepare yourself to lose a parent. I found that the grief never gets better, but I’ve become better over time. Losing her made me even more determined not to put off experiencing life and pursuing my dreams.
