Stacey Joy Netzel Book List

Interview with Stacey Joy Netzel
What is the strangest real life situation that is in one of your stories?
Getting left behind on the side of the road in Italy less than 3 hrs after arriving in the country. Want to know what happened next? Check out Lost In Italy. ;) No, seriously...my brother and sister came back, I wrote a book, all’s well that ends well. (Would’ve been better if I’d have gotten my own movie star in the deal, but that’s what fiction books are for.)

What is your favorite genre?
I enjoy reading both romantic comedy and romantic suspense. I also like to step outside romance once in a while and recently have read some good zombie books. It’s not a genre I ever thought I’d enjoy, but hey, it’s a nice surprise for me.

Do you enjoy reading your own stories?
I love my own books. Not in an egotistical way, but really, shouldn’t an author love what they’re writing, or how else would we expect our readers to? When I re-read something months or years later, it’s like visiting friends I haven’t seen in awhile and I love that, too.

Favorite book or character you have written?
I’m in the middle of getting my Colorado Trust Series ready for indie release this spring. 2 brand new books, plus re-releases of 3 books that I recently had returned to me from a publisher. During re-edits of the ‘older’ books, my love for Jordan Blake in Dare to Trust has been thoroughly reinforced. He and Lexie have had to go through so much, they are very close to my heart. Not to mention I had a blast writing the secondary characters of Rocky the raccoon and Sass the mountain lion. Rocky is based off a pet I had growing up, and it was so much fun getting him and Jordan to bond.

Do you ever forget that the characters are not real?
Um...answering this would make me sound crazy. But I’m not, I’m just an author, trying to make a living by telling stories about my friends.

What is your go-to snack?
If I’m trying to be healthy, I stick with pistachios, apples, or raw veggies. If I just don’t care at the moment (and I have too many of those moments), I’ve been known to keep a bag of marshmallows on my desk. M&M’s are good, too. And, um, chocolate chip cookie dough?

Bio: NY Times and USA Today Bestselling author Stacey Joy Netzel fell in love with books at a young age, so for her the graduation to writing them was natural. An avid reader and fan of movies with a happily ever after, she is thrilled to call herself a full-time writer after 20 years as a travel agent. She lives with her husband and children in Wisconsin, where she writes romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and the occasional paranormal romance. Colorado is a favorite locale for her books, followed closely by Wisconsin, and Italy.

She lives in her native Wisconsin with her husband and children, a couple horses and some barn cats. In her limited free time she enjoys gardening, canning, and visiting her parents in Northeastern Wisconsin (Up North) at the family cabin on the lake.

Stand Alone
Chasin' Mason
Amazon    Smashwords
When his father announced his engagement to a gold-digger with a lying, scheming fourteen-year old daughter, seventeen-year old Tripp Warner left Warner Ridge Ranch and never looked back. Until the day he got the phone call that his father had died unexpectedly.

Reggie Reed lives with guilt every day but can't quite work up the courage to track down the son of the man who raised her as his own. When Tripp shows up at his father’s funeral eleven years later-and a hell of a man to be reckoned with-he has no interest in her too-late apology. Worse, they’ve inherited half shares of the family ranch—but only if they work together to catch Mason’s Gold, the stallion a young Reggie let escape and made sure Tripp took the blame for.

Tripp proposes a secret competition to the beautiful witch who stole his life: whoever catches the stallion first gets the ranch all to themselves. It sounds simple, but once they’re out on the range, tempers and passions flare in the Texas heat and nothing goes as either of them expects.
More Than a Kiss
Amazon    Smashwords
When a kiss...

All reporter Sadie Barton wants is to be taken seriously and judged on her own merits, not her stepfather’s money. She and her actress sister left Wisconsin to get out from under his controlling thumb and leave behind the malicious whispers that they’re no better than their gold-digging mother. But California isn’t all sun and fun, and paying the rent while trying to prove herself is harder than she ever imagined.

...is more than a kiss...

Something about Sadie drew self-made millionaire Zach Robinson—and it wasn’t just the amazing kiss they shared as impromptu actors in his company's commercial. He’s used to women being interested in his wealth, and Sadie’s fierce independence is an enticing breath of fresh air. He’s falling fast—until his brother suggests acting runs in her family and Sadie might not be exactly what she seems...
Ditched Again
Summer Clark: Yes, I’m excited for my ten year class reunion—I flew all the way from Florida to Wisconsin so I could rub my success in Josh Nelson’s face. I know it sounds vindictive, but the jerk ditched me at the Snowball dance, left me to find my own ride home, and never apologized. He’s got it coming…if I can get a tow truck to come out in this freak May snowstorm and pull my rental car out of the ditch.

Josh Nelson: No, I’m not looking forward to the reunion. Just hearing the name Summer Clark brings back memories of a night I buried long ago and never talked about again. Seeing her means skirting the truth while trying to deliver a way-too-late apology. No, with this storm, I think I’ll head home…as soon as I help this car sunk in the ditch.

Clearly, there are two sides to every story.
Dragonfly Dreams
Amazon
Can a family connection to the ill-fated Titanic bring new hope to sinking dreams?

With his antique shop on the brink of bankruptcy, Jake Coburn knows he shouldn’t buy costume jewelry at a price that won’t turn a profit. Then again, it’s Christmas, and he hasn’t been able to say no to Loral Evan’s since the first time she entered his shop.

Desperation is what drives Loral Evans to sell precious family heirlooms, but Jake’s offer of one thousand dollars for a dragonfly brooch she knows is fake stings her pride. If only she could afford to walk away from the handsome antique dealer.

During a season of giving, Loral learns there’s a big difference between pride and dignity, and Jake’s determination to do the right thing brings rewards beyond what either of them ever dreamed of.
Paranormal Stand Alone
If Tombstones Could Talk

The story behind Andrew Lindeman's tragic death after the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush in 1859 triggers dreams in which she relives his last moments.

He's closing in on the suspects when an American tourist unwittingly films the murder of the retired cop helping him.

Brittany Lucas chose to spend one last summer working for Mark Jennings on his Colorado ranch. Her father wasn't happy with her choice, then again she never could please the man.

Ranger Joel Morgan is looking for the poacher who is mutilating animals inside the park. What he doesn't expect to find is the woman who brings his past back to him and not in a good way.

If he can use her to prove Jack is behind the spiraling downfall of his company, he might be able to turn things around before losing everything.

As he pieces together their past lives, he discovers they aren’t the only players. Worse, if he can’t convince Ali to believe before their past adversary makes the next move, he’ll lose her all over again.

Melanie Sparks moves to the town of Lindeman’s Crossing, Colorado. The town her grandmother had lived in and loved. Her grandmother had always told her all the tales of the old mining town, but she never told her about the connection of their family to the town founder. On a tour through the cemetery something odd happens. She hears a voice during the tour. The simple words spoken that only she could hear, makes her question the tales of Andrew Lindeman. Tales that started over one hundred and fifty years ago about the man the town is named after. Was he a hero or a villain?
This is a fairly quick read, but not short on a great story line. I really enjoyed it. It is told from a couple points of view, which I always enjoy. Being it was short, I’m keeping my review short, so as not to give anything away.
