Courtney Pierce is an awesome story teller – she must be writing from real life because the book is so believable and relatable. Three sisters who finally bond in their mid-life years tell an intriguing, interesting story that’s woven with unexpected twists and turns – laugh out loud stuff.
Courtney paints a picture of New England and the adventures of the sisters that makes you feel that you are along for the ride. I laughed, I cried, and I thoroughly enjoyed my ride.
I honestly haven’t read a book for pleasure for over 8 years. Upon the recommendation of a friend, i purchased this book and absolutely loved it! I couldn’t put it down. Great writing and character development. Was thrilled to find out there is a 2nd book coming. Can’t wait!.
A delightful second peek into the boomer generation. Couldn’t put it down. Can’t wait for 3rd book.
At long last, INDIGO LEGACY is nearly done! I took my time with this final book of the Dushane Sisters Trilogy. The plot unfolded in real time with the happenings in my life: I walked down the aisle as new bride back in June of 2017, and with my new status I became a mom to an 11-year-old stepdaughter. My character of Olivia Novack has her own set of transitions to embrace in this new installment. I hope to have it out by Summer, 2018. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at the cover. Rosalind McFarland, the designer, did an amazing job.
My article on the Romancing the Genres blog spotlights the epidemic of Gray Divorce among boomers. The piece caused quite a stir after I posted it. While I never thought divorce would be part of my life, I move forward with wisdom and humor. Check out “My Life-Changing Event – The BIG One!” that posted on 8/22/16.
The third and final book of the Dushane Sisters Trilogy, titled Indigo Legacy, is nearly complete. And it’ll have a whopper of an ending. The painting for the cover will be revealed this fall. More information is coming soon!

Got a great review of The Executrix by Pat Wilkins for West Side Newspaper in Salem, OR. This quote is priceless:
” . . . The Executrix is one of those books hard to put down, something like your eyeballs being attached to it with Gorilla Glue. You’ll like this first of a planned trilogy and perhaps so much so you’ll impatiently await the successive volumes.“
