Happy holidays to all! Give a big welcome to C.B. Clark, author of Bitter Legacy. Have a seat and grab an insulated mug. I’ve got hot chocolate, hot cider and coffee. Choose your pot, they’re labeled. Pick your choice of a Snicker-doodle, Chocolate Chip or Peanut butter cookie from the plate. Yep, I baked them myself. Lets see what Bitter Legacy is all about. Thanks for joining us!
Well, C.B. you’ve been here before, so this time tell us Something no one knows about you:
As a child, I devoured all 56 volumes of Nancy Drew Mystery Stories. I even read some twice. My dream was to be just like Nancy and her friends. I’m not a detective, but I do write mysteries. Bitter Legacy is my third romantic suspense novel published by The Wild Rose Press. A fourth book will be out in early 2018.
Oh wow, Ioved Nancy Drew too and Trixie Beldon. I still have all those well-worn, beloved books sitting on the top shelve of my book cases. They were wonderful books.
Where can we find you on line C.B.?

What is Bitter Legacy about?
Nothing’s more frightening than a woman out for revenge. After a seventeen-year absence, Sharla-Jean Bromley returns to her old hometown determined to spit on her father’s grave and the townspeople who betrayed her. Instead, she ends up in a contest of wills with the all-too-attractive Josh Morgan. When a mad man threatens their very lives, Sharla-Jean and Josh must put aside their distrust for one another and work together to save her father’s legacy and find the passion of a lifetime.
A Peek Between the Pages of Bitter Legacy:
Sharla-Jean Bromley had wanted only two things in life—a red dress and her father’s death. She’d waited years. Hell, she’d prayed for this moment. Why then, wasn’t this a celebration? Why was a ball of acid churning through her stomach? Taking a deep breath, she climbed out of the taxi and smoothed the skirt of her figure-hugging, red, silk dress over her hips.
The crowd of somber mourners stood in clusters on the sweeping steps outside the old stone church under the late-October, overcast sky. The damp air was ripe with the familiar sweet-sour smell of freshly cut Douglas fir. Over the hill behind the church, steam trailed in white plumes from the two lumber-drying kilns at the mill. A wind gusted, marshaling scattered piles of gold and red leaves into the gutter.
Goose bumps riddled her arms, and she fought back a shiver as she strode forward, knees quaking, jostling through the crowd on the wide sidewalk.
A collective gasp filled the air, and her name swept over the mourners in a rising crescendo. “It’s her! Sharla-Jean. Big Jim’s daughter.”
It was wonderful having you with us today. Please feel free to stop by anytime. Good Luck with Bitter Legacy!
