    I listen to audio versions of your books and have a lot of them. In one if your books there are 2 characters named Lois and Orlyand the own a shop. I was wondering if you might think about writing a story about them getting a little dog that comes to the shop with them and enjoys greeting people and helping customers with their problems.

    Is the publishing order of your books reflect the order to read them. I’d think so but but would like clarification.

    Thank you very much for writing your books. I’m disabled and pretty much in bed due to side effects from chemo. I love reading your books because while reading them I feel like I’m out there living life. Very therapeutic.

    What series was the Book Stolen in? I have read almost all Wanda’s books, but cant seem to find the ones following Stolen to know the outcome.

    • Graeme: 3 years ago

      There is no book called Stolen. The series The Daughters of Lancaster County was what inspired it.

  9. Marge baker: 3 years ago
