Double Trouble by Edna Curry

Rosie, to please her dying mother, agreed to marry Ken Latham, the handsome, rich boss she doesn’t love, but who has been regularly proposing to her. She rationalizes that she’ll have a good life with him and true love is only a fairy tale anyway. But that promise of a good life turns into a nightmare when Ken is mugged, has amnesia and breaks their engagement.
Also, Rosie and Ken have to deal with their company’s CEO, Lester, who sends Kirk, Ken’s identical twin, to investigate possible embezzlement at their building supply store. And someone is trying to kill Ken and also harassing Rosie.
Can they survive long enough to build their attraction into love?

Never Love a Logger 

A historical romance set against the background of the big log jam pictured below from the 1886 Taylors Falls, MN, log jam, the largest log jam Ever. It depicts life in the logging days with lots of detail about the lives of people during that time.

What happens when a rough and ready logger who wants no responsibility and thinks he doesn’t deserve a second chance at love falls for an attractive prim and proper lady with a ready made family?

Will and Carrie think there is no chance for them to have a family of their own.  Each has reasons to avoid love and entanglements.  Will is burned out on responsibility after helping his widowed mother raise his siblings. He turned away from God when his wife and infant son died.  Carrie thinks no man will want her and her brother.  She promised her father she’d raise her brother and while she’s attracted to Will, duty comes first. 

Then the greatest logjam in the world throws them together for six weeks. Will is staying at the boarding house where she works while he and many others try to break up the logjam.

There are many more pictures of the log jam on the MN Historical Society's website and on the WI Historical Society's website as well.

 Earth in 2093 

A futuristic novel set in Minnesota featuring Minnesota Detective Dave Barns and Computer specialist Nell Summers, grandaughter of Lacey Summers from my Lacey Summers, PI Series. 
The year is 2093 and everyone's DNA is recorded in the World Database run by a now powerful United Nations. Crime is way down, since criminals are easily identified. Food is plentiful because water from the oceans is desalinated for irrigation of former deserts. Power is also plentiful and cheap, harnessed from the sun and wind. 
But there are always a few people who resent governments of any kind and think they can do as they please. One is now raping and killing young women and Dave and Nell work to identify and stop him. But they find that easier said than done.
