Welcome to Tara's Place Where Mystery And Romance Are Everywhere. I'm so pleased you stopped by! If you enjoy heartwarming mystery and romance filled with love and family values, you've come home. I love books that put a smile on your face, a zing in your heart, and keep you turning the pages late into the night. It's all about the journey. How on earth will our couple get together, then forge on together and face obstacles intent on keeping them apart? Again we see how mystery and romance, love and family add to the tapestry of our lives. Love gives us hope, family keeps us grounded, and mystery and romance gives us that little edge we all admit we crave from time to time. Why else open a book, except to become immersed in a world that is totally unexpected, full of surprises, humor, and that tingle of emotion we all seek and love.

At Tara's Place, you can read about my books. Romance. Family. Mystery. Love. The combinations are endless, and lots of fun. Upcoming releases will be listed when dates are available. So for now, sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy a few hours spent with unforgettable characters sure to lift your spirits and brighten your day. It's only a page away!

Rival Hearts    Quilts of Love June 2014

They both want the promotion. But will they find out that it is worth the cost?

Molly Henderson and Ben Weaver have been rival magazine writers for the same publishing group for years. When both come up for the same promotion, they find themselves in an unexpected competition to win the spot. Molly, editor of Quilter’s Heart, and Ben, editor of Outdoor Adventures, must switch roles, each working for the other for one month, then submit an article at the end of their quests.

Can girly-girl Molly survive the outdoor adventures that Ben has planned? Can Ben navigate the perils of the social dynamics of quilting events without destroying a valuable quilt in one short month? More importantly, in this he-said, she-said situation, will Molly and Ben give in to their attraction and fall in love, no matter who wins?

"Randel's rich characterizations of Ben and Molly and the complexity of their relationship will keep readers' attention..." Publisher's Weekly

Magnolia Bride

Married for a day, in love for life

Nealy Grainger knew that returning to Cypress Pointe meant an inevitable encounter with her teenage crush, and momentary husband, Dane Peterson. She could handle it. She wasn't the wounded girl who'd left Cypress Pointe years ago, heartbroken and furious when Dane had annulled their marriage the day after they'd eloped.

Now one of L.A.'s most in-demand celebrity event planners, Nealy's only come back for a vacation and to help with her sister's wedding—not for a reunion with her long-lost love. But the more their paths cross, the more the sparks fly! Maybe their connection isn't over just yet...
