Vanishing Teardrops

I am pleased to announce the release of Vanishing Teardrops, book #4 in the Tamara’s Teardrops series! Hold onto your hats, because this is going to be a wild ride!

It was her second chance at parole, and Tamara knew this time that it wasn’t going to be easy. That ended up being the understatement of the century. In a new environment, trying to be a parent for the first time after years of not being allowed to make any decisions for herself, she didn’t know how she was going to make it.
