I just read on a blog that she died this past Friday. I don't know how, but read that it was an unexpected thing. So sad!

I haven't read any of her books, but I do have one here and I think I'll go ahead and read it.

I looked at the link you included and her passing was obviously not expected - so sad.

I've had her books on my reminder list but have not read any of her works yet.

I think she writes Historical Romance, but I requested her book "Rivals for the Crown" a while back because I thought it sounded good. I was just looking at the reviews for this one though and realized it's a prequel for "On A Highland Shore". I didn't know that.

I read on her blog that she'd written a non-fiction book with her daughter. It was finished, but her agent returned it for more editing. I wonder what it's about and what will happen to it now.

I don't think I've ever read any of her books, but I'm sorry to hear. May her Memory be Eternal.
