If you’ve read any of the Serena Jones mysteries, cast your vote for your favorite man in her life. Feel free to add a comment, too.

Hmm, this is a static image of the voting grid I used to have here. 

Vote for your favourite

I just realized it disappeared from my page and I’m not sure why. Problem with the plugin, I suspect. Until I figure out how to fix that, you can add your vote to it here:

Here’s a quick recap of the choices:
Ten years older than Serena, Tanner Calhoun is a dedicated agent, quick-witted and protective.

Nate Butler is an easy-going animal lover, who shares Serena’s love of art, a well-brewed cup of tea and old movies.

Still can’t decide?

Check out this blog from a Team Tanner fan and this one from Team Nate’s fan club president.  😀

Please Note: The final book in this series, Over Maya Dead Body, has now gone to my publisher (releases summer 2017), so although your vote can no longer influence it’s outcome, I’d still love to read your comments!


  • Team Tanner! 🙂 He just seems more down to earth and “real” to me! And the way he teases Serena and pushes her buttons- so fun to read!

  • Debby – definitely Tanner! Love his character. They go together best! (I still can’t get my vote for Tanner to accept)
    Love your books!!!

    • That’s an issue with the third-party app I used I’m afraid, but you’ll be happy to know your pick currently has 71% of the vote. 🙂

  • I just read the first book, and it seems like your favorite is Tanner, and he comes across as a great choice. Nate almost seems to “vanilla,” though is likeable enough to keep me guessing. Can’t wait to see how it turns out!

  • Who wouldn’t want a great looking, down to earth guy with very expensive art and alarm system in his apt? Aunt Martha insinuated Nate is a millionaire too! The muscle bound guys like Tanner whom I have known break down in their 70’s and get needy. Nate would be steady as a rock! Don’t recall Tanner asking Sandra to the Blues game. Remember her Dad gives the tickets to Tanner. Tanner should have asked Sandra to go with him IF he were really interested.

    • LOL Such great observations. Now, I, Sandra, really wouldn’t have been interested in going to the Blues game with Tanner, but you’re right, he could have asked! 😀 Getting on the good side of the author always helps. And I’m sure Serena would have been interested in going…I think. 😉

  • I’m torn because Tanner seems such a tender/tough guy and handsome to boot. They share their love of solving the cases, but I’m not sure he wants to be her man, maybe just enjoying the relationship they have. I love the mystery of Nate and who he really is. I can see them enjoying a lifetime of shared interests, travel and adventures!

    • I can see you’ve given this a lot of thought. So neat to see. 🙂 Too more books and you’ll find out who she chooses. 🙂 Then…if you like, you can join the private Facebook group I created where readers can talk about the ending and ideas for future books or whatever, without concern for spoilers.

  • Nate, definitely. She needs balance in her life. When she finds out who killed grasndpa, her mommy hormones will kick in and Nate and vshe share many important interests.Besides, even if she continued to be an agent, he would be great to come home to.

Great to "see" you here today! I look forward to reading your comment.
