Her aerial photography business is on the verge of bankruptcy after a string of mechanical failures that don't seem coincidental.

Her pictures created a furor when it was discovered that the runoff is coming from one of the largest lavender growers in the valley, a family business inherited by Shauna's estranged cousin.
When her mentor and business partner is murdered, Shauna realizes that she's in danger too. Fearing for her son, she turns to the only ally she has. Nate Bannister was her husband's best friend-and is the person she blames for his death. Nate is only too happy to try to assuage his own guilt over Jack's death by helping her in any way he can. But the lavender fields are a shroud for something much darker, and these are secrets that someone will do anything to keep buried.

From the author:
As a preteen girl, I ate the last brownie my mother would ever make. She had passed away in our kitchen just days before.I savored every crumb.
Less than a year later, my dad married again - the woman I would soon call "Mom." It's a love story of grief, and choosing to open our hearts again.
I now have a love story of my own that led to me being a wife and mother of three. Family life is full. Full of joy in growth, laughter around the dinner table, and sorrow in hardships. It was not easy when we lost babies to miscarriage, or when our toddler son was diagnosed with cancer and underwent three years of chemotherapy treatments.
We all live through the sweet and the sour. We each taste the delicious and the disagreeable. But I believe life can be savored through the heartache, joy, and the moments in between.
I have this hope because of my faith in God. It is what has carried me through and has given me a purpose and a peace greater than any circumstance.
Brownie Crumbs and Other Life Morsels tells these true stories and challenges you to savor your own life. Each chapter concludes with a bite-sized morsel. A sentence or two meant to summarize the message of that story and season, and to encourage and equip you to savor life.
