NEW REGENCY MYSTERY ROMANCE RELEASED!



I’ve just finished reading Bahamian bestselling author Paul Bethel’s latest Regency novel “The Whispering Tongues”, full of scandal, romance, mystery and murder! The U.K. publishers Joffe Books sent me an advanced reader copy and I also preordered it on Amazon because I liked it so much! Paul writes his Regency novels under the pseudonym Beth Andrews. 

The Whispering Tongues is Book Three in the Beth Andrews Sussex Regency Romance Series. It became a #1 Best Seller as soon as it was released today by Joffe! 

I thoroughly enjoyed it, like I did Books One and Two and several of his other books! The Kindle version is available now at the special launch price of just £0.99 | $0.99.

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY BAHAMAS 2022

 


So good to be back in Starbucks, Baha Mar! It’s been a long haul.

It’s Remembrance Sunday here in The Bahamas. Fondly remembering my late parents who served in World War Two – Josephine Johanson, Women’s Royal Air Force, and William Johanson, Royal Australian Air Force.

Erskine and I also had a fast walk all around Baha Mar. It’s been over two years since we were last able to do this. Felt great!

TROPICAL STORM NICOLE TO BECOME A HURRICANE IN THE BAHAMAS


 It may look like bliss in this photo, but when I tried to get closer to the beach to get a better shot, I was driven back with the wind and rain. I nearly got blown over!

Tropical Storm Nicole is now in our region and predicted to become a Cat 1 hurricane over the extreme North Western Bahamas. Fortunately, New Providence is out of the cone, so we should only get some rainy, windy weather here, although we have been told to expect tropical storm conditions.

We are praying for Abaco, Grand Bahama, and Bimini, which are predicted to have hurricane force winds by tomorrow night. Grand Bahama and Abaco suffered so much from Cat 5 Hurricane Dorian in 2019 and many of the survivors of that terrible storm haven’t recovered from it yet.

KEEP ON KEEPING ON!


 It’s important to still keep active while you’re writing! Erskine and I haven’t been to the gym since the pandemic started, but we have a little “home gym” now, which we use just about every day. We will also start walking again once the weather here in Nassau cools down!

HURRICANE STORIES


Damage after a previous storm (Nassau, Bahamas)

Hurricane Ian is churning up some bad weather in our region. We are praying for the West coast of Florida, which is in the direct path of this dangerous Cat 4 hurricane. Thankfully, The Bahamas is only experiencing the outer bands of the storm.

In my novel “Dangerous Devotion” (Book One in my Buchanan Mystery Romance Series) a fierce hurricane hits The Bahamas. Here are two excerpts from the book:

……“We’d better get back now.” Pete turned on the wipers and headed for home, but the wipers couldn’t move fast enough to clear the rain and debris from the windshield. He swerved to avoid fallen tree limbs on the road. And as large and heavy as his truck was, the wind wrestled wildly with it. He kept his hands firmly on the steering wheel. Then, just as they manoeuvred between bending casuarina trees on either side of the narrow road, they heard a loud crack. A large branch crashed on the truck, shattering the windscreen. The children screamed as the truck skidded out of control.

……The squatters’ house where Anthony was staying had been hit hard. It had previously fallen into disrepair and the occupants weren’t sober enough to prepare for the hurricane. The roof gave way and the ceiling fell in. Some of the people inside crawled into corners of the house where they thought they would be safe. Anthony Brown woke up in a panic as rain poured down on him. He grabbed the ice pick from under his pillow, shoved it into his deep trouser pocket, and rushed out into the storm. Tree branches, coconuts, bins and garbage whirled around him as he sought shelter in the nearest building that still had a roof - a small latrine outhouse. He completely forgot about his ankle monitor.
