Title: Raining Jelly Beans
Author: Vicky Burkholder
Genre: Contemporary Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Delia loves her life at the lodge but when an email arrives threatening her happiness, she vows to fight to protect her children. Hoping her ex won’t follow through with his threats, she confides her concerns to a local cop and her brother’s best friend Noah.
Noah has loved Delia from afar for a long time. But he knows she’s off limits because she’s Max’s little sister. So, when she asks for his help, he puts his love on the back burner to find her kidnapped twin girls and put her ex-husband behind bars.
Although this is a stand-alone book, it is connected to the previous story “The Gingerbread Lodge” by Vicky Burkholder with many of the same characters readers fell in love with there.
“Noah? What about him? We’re…friends.” Delia thought about her brother Max’s best friend, a tall, handsome local cop who lived about two miles down the mountain toward town. She’d had a crush on him in high school, but he’d been two years ahead of her and barely knew she was alive. She shrugged. “He’s Noah. I’m just Max’s little sister who was always in the way.”
Gigi huffed at her. “You’re impossible. You do realize that he’s been dating you for months now, don’t you?”
“Huh?” Her eyes went wide. “We’ve never been on a date.”
Gigi rolled her eyes and looked at her, one eyebrow raised. “Think about the nights he eats here. Where do you sit?”
Delia frowned and cocked her head, recalling all those nights. “We sit over by the fireplace.”
“Uh huh. And where are the rest of us?”
“You’re right there…” Delia’s eyes widened. “No, you’re not. You’re over near the buffet, with the kids.”
“Yep. And what do you two talk about while you’re eating?”
“We…” Another frown. “We talk about everything. About life, the girls…”
“And that’s not a date? Delia, you’ve been dating that man for months. Tell me you haven’t.”

As her alter-ego, Vicky has multiple homes all over the universe. She looks human - for the most part - but when she starts writing about characters being able to move things or flicking fire from their fingertips, or changing the course of rivers, people tend to get a little freaked out. She found the one guy out there in the universe who loves her for who she is and they've been together forever and raised four wonderful (now) adults. When not editing or writing, she can be found in the kitchen creating gluten free goodies for her family.
