New Book Release - Shadows in the Curtain

I haven't had a book release in the summer since 2007. This is so much fun! I hope you all enjoy Shadows in the Curtain and have a wonderful summer with lots of friends, family, warm weather, and good reading.

Every stage actress wants fans, but what happens when one goes too far?

Emmy has the perfect life— a house on the beach, a successful career headlining the local theater, and love. But when a brutal murder brings unimaginable grief, Emmy’s world comes crashing down. As she tries to pick up the pieces, she can’t seem to avoid Josh, the new fireman in town.

Emmy does her best to fight the sizzle in her chest when Josh is near. But with the stalker still out there, terrorizing her and those she cares about, she can’t fall for anyone—especially Josh, a suspect in the murder investigation.

If Emmy allows a man to get close, it’s not just her heart she puts at risk, it’s her life.

“Cami Checketts can spin a tale like no other. Love, suspense, thrills, she has it all, and Shadows in the Curtain is no exception. What a thrill ride! I highly recommend this book. 10 stars!!”
Sherry Gammon, author of the Port Fare Series

“I’m a sucker for the exciting parts, and this book has scenes that had my eyes racing my heart to the end of each page!”
 Amanda Tru, author of the Yesterday series

I'll be giving away an audio book of Dead Running and an E-book copy of Fourth of July.

Running from the mercenaries who killed her parents.
Running from a scheming redhead intent on making her life miserable.
Running from painful memories that sabotage her dreams of happiness.
With two very tempting men competing for her attention, she hopes she'll finally have someone to run to, but can she trust either of them? When secrets from her past threaten her family, Cassidy decides to stop running and fight for her future.

An attack on American soil is just the beginning.
When eight parade floats explode during the annual Fourth of July celebrations, Agent Chris Harmer must find who planted the bombs before the terrorists strike again. 
His troubles aren't isolated to terrorism. Chris falls in love with the FBI's feisty psychiatrist, Alexis Osborne. She won't commit to someone who doesn't share her religious values, and Chris has no desire to convert.

My latest book is with the editor. I want to celebrate but I need to decide on a title and back cover blurb first! Let me know which ones are your favorites and what you think of the cover. The cover is still low resolution so the image will look fabulous soon. Thanks and many hugs, Cami

Title Ideas:
Misplaced Trust
Scared of the Sizzle
Mistrusting the Sparks
Shadows in the Curtain
Staged Trust
Rogue Wave

Back Cover Blurb Ideas:

Can they find love with a murderer tracking their every move?

When a stalker destroys her life, performer Emmaline Henderson is afraid to love or trust again. Fear is now her constant companion and she finds herself giving up almost everything else as it takes over her world. Her one refuge: The theater.

Fireman Joshua Campbell knows the feisty actress is off limits, but he can't keep her out of his thoughts. After a near-fatal drowning off the coast of Oregon, he hopes things will change, but it seems Emmy has no intention of making a relationship easy for either one of them.

Emmy does her best to fight the sizzle in her chest when he’s around.  Not only is it too soon for those kinds of feelings, Josh was one of the suspects in the murder investigation.

If Emmy allows a man to get close, it’s not just her heart she puts at risk, it’s her life.

Hawke's Nest by Darcy Flynn

Hawke’s Nest book blurb:

Running away is nothing new for Annie Dell, aka high-fashion model Anna Delany. With the paparazzi hot on her trail, an out of town wedding couldn’t have come at a more opportune time. What better place to hide out than the quaint Florida beach town Liddy’s told her so much about. But a delayed flight, the mix up with the car rental, then a speeding ticket from the local Sheriff of Nottingham, her getaway is looking anything but relaxing.

Franklin County Sheriff, Levi Hawke, is tired of the spoiled, out-of-control students on fall break, who think they can speed through his county without consequence. After giving a ticket to a beautiful young woman he assumes is just another daddy’s girl looking for some fun in the sun, he discovers she’s his weekend date at his best friend’s wedding.

Through gritted teeth, masked by a half-hearted truce, they survive the weekend, only to find themselves stranded alone in the middle of a hurricane. You can discover a lot about a person while spending thirty-six hours without the comforts of electricity and modern conveniences. When circumstances further extend her stay in town, Levi pries deeper to find out what Annie’s running from. He knows when someone is haunted by their past. As the saying goes ... it takes one to know one.


Annie took a sip of Sauvignon Blanc and glanced at Levi. He had shoved his chair back from the table and sat holding his wine glass in his right hand while perusing her with his keen baby blues.
Fine, she could handle his rude stares. She’d been ogled by far worse than him. She tilted her head to one side and smiled. The smile photographer Dave Mandel of Glamour Magazine claimed was irresistible. Well, no time like the present to put that ridiculous statement to the test.
“So, Sheriff.” She scooted her chair closer to his and the sudden alarm that entered his eyes was delicious. She lifted her glass in the air. “I propose we call a truce. After all, we’re here to celebrate the wedding of your best friend and my best friend. And since we’ve been paired for the weekend, by the matchmaking bride, we may as well make the most of it.”
She gave him her most candid, but coy expression, daring him to disagree. “What do you say?” she coaxed softly.
“How could I deny such an earnest and sincere request?”
Something about the way he said it churned her insides, but she gave nothing away as she smiled brightly at him. Tilting his head in salute, he raised his glass and touched it to hers, the sound of crystal sealing the deal.


Darcy Flynn is known for her heartwarming, sweet contemporary romances. Her refreshing storylines, irritatingly handsome heroes and feisty heroines will delight and entertain you from the first page to the last. Miss Flynn’s heroes and heroines have a tangible chemistry that is entertaining, humorous and competitive.

Darcy lives with her husband, son, two English Setters and a menagerie of other living creatures on her horse farm in Franklin, Tennessee. She raises rare breed chickens, stargazes on warm summer nights and indulges daily in afternoon tea.

 Now discover Booker and Tess's story!
Booker Gatto is done. Done with women, his old life, all of it. Only the love of his friends in Port Fare keeps him going as he leaves the MET in exchange for the quiet 
life his new law practice will provide. 
Tess Selleck, once as ambitious and determined as she is smart and beautiful, had to leave everything and everyone she loves in San Diego to escape the man who destroyed her dreams and now wants her dead. 
Together Booker and Tess find love when they least expect it, until their pasts drive
them apart. Is there a happily ever after for these damaged lovers? Or is the thought of loving and trusting again simply Unbearable?

Unbearable is the exciting conclusion to the Port Fare Series. Join Booker as he struggles to find his happily ever after.

My Review:

I've loved this entire series, but have been impatiently awaiting Booker's story. I was not disappointed and fell in love with Booker all over again! I also adored Tess. Her story is heartbreaking but also inspiring to see what she was able to overcome. Unbearable has it all - romance, suspense, intrigue. I would highly recommend the entire series.

The Godmother Spell - Free

The Fairy Godmother Chronicles Release Party

June 5th and 6th

Book 1, The Godmother Spell, is FREE! 

Despite her mother's objections, all Lyndee's ever wanted was to become a fairy godmother. But once she's bonded to two goddaughters, she realizes that godmotherhood is much more than granting wishes. Not only does she have to protect the girls from an evil fairy bent on destroying Lyndee's career before it begins, she has to deal with an overzealous overseer named Gavin. Not that she minds Gavin so much - he's gorgeous; he just happens to make things worse when he tries to help.

I absolutely love Lucy McConnell's books. I didn't even know about this series and can't wait to read them all. Let me know if you enjoy them. Hugs, Cami

Books 2, Twisted Happy Ever Afters, and 3, Complicated Kisses, are also available.

Happy first day of summer vacation! I'm thrilled to have the boys home from school - no schedules, ice cream every day, fun bonding times with my boys, swimming, bike rides, the list could go on. My only worry is how to teach them how to work when they'd rather be shooting some alien on the XBOX. Any advice? I think my first attempt is absolutely no devices until chores are done and they've done something outside to improve a talent. Should work for a few weeks!
