Trouble Comes in Twos

After a five year absence, Kate Wesley returns to Twinsburg Ohio to open a florist shop. She’s content with life until Mark Westfield enters the picture. To make matters worse her ex fiancé is back in town, looking to pick up where they left off, and she’s attracted to both men. As if her life isn’t complicated enough, she finds a dead body in the cemetery, the twin sister of the victim shows up and another body is discovered. Can Kate sort through the confusion her life has become or will she become the next victim?

Previously released as Double the Trouble

"Roseanne Dowell does it again, this time adding mystery to the romance--from the kidnapping of a bride on the eve of her wedding to stumbling across a body under a bush in the local cemetery, Kate Wesley has more than just two love interests distracting her. Not to mention, the victim's identical twin. Ms. Dowell kept me guessing throughout the book both whodunit and who was gonna "do it" with Kate." ~ 5 stars - Whodunit and Another Twin

"I totally LOVED reading this novel! Roseanne Dowell has seasoned skills and can truly grip her reader from the moment the read the first word. I was captured from that moment until I read the last word, and I didn't want the story to end! It was amazingly written and the characters became my friends. I wanted to stay alongside the wonderful people in the town of Twinsburg." ~
5 stars - Romantic Suspense At It's FINEST!

Entangled Minds

Strange, realistic visions and dreams invade Rebecca Brennan’s mind. When she experiences someone’s pain, she’s determined to find out who shares her mind. Her search leads to a small town filled with Victorian homes and interesting people and puts her life in danger.

"A fast paced read ... I love a book that just jumps right into the action right from page one and this book definitely did that. Rebecca’s journey was interesting, I found the character engaging and found it a light read, meaning it didn’t bog me down in a whole bunch of details. The author allowed me to fill in many of the blanks myself." ~ 5 Stars, Killarney, Amazon

"Hooking a reader on the first page is an important tool for a reader, and Ms. Dowell really pulls you in with Becca’s rude awakening in Entangled Minds. I really did not have the perpetrator anywhere on my list of suspects! If you’ve read my reviews, you know how difficult I usually am to fool. Brava Ms. Dowell." ~ 5 Stars, Rochelle Weber, Roses & Thorns Reviews
Love on the Rocks

Imagine finding a body washed up on your shore. That’s exactly what happened to author, Jordan Blake, during an early Lake Effect snowstorm. So much for her quiet existence. Who was the handsome stranger? And why did he have such an effect on her?

Previously released as Stranger on the Shore

"I normally say that the more detail I can get about a character, the better. This book, however, proved me wrong. Who would have thought that a man with no name and no history could be so incredibly attractive, or a single night spent with a stranger could be so memorable? With a great starting concept and a few deftly placed details, this story manages to pack a great amount of sizzle and sentiment into a much more compact form." ~ Bridget, The Romance Reviews

"...one fast moving novel. From the beginning you will be caught up in all of the drama that unfolds in a fast pace right before your eyes. I was highly impressed with Roseanne Dowell's writing style. She exhibits talents of a writer who knows how to write with a level of undertone suspense. I highly anticipate her next novel." ~ 5 Stars, Suzie, Romance Junkies Book Reviews
It's Only Make Believe

When Michele Markey is forced into marriage to the son of a long time family friend, the only stipulation she makes is he must remain faithful. Brad Lawson agrees, but faithful is one thing, celibate is another. Too bad Brad’s assistant is determined to break up the marriage. Is Brad keeping up his end of the bargain on those extended business trips and late night appointments? Or has he taken up with his sexy assistant again?

Previously released as Satin Sheets

"A classic modern romance! Michelle and Brad don't want this arranged marriage, but, as usual, allow their parents wishes to prevail. The merging of two important families is not what they had in mind for a future. But as the honeymoon begins, a magic that cannot be denied ignites sparks between them. Constant separations, interference from a female employee and misunderstandings keep them both guessing as to the other's true feelings. With each connection, their romance grows but neither accepts it at face value. This novel is a true page turner, urging the reader onward, hoping for that final crescendo of love." ~ 4 Stars, Editor, Author, Publicist, Amazon
All in the Family

Roseanne Dowell Special Edition

Contains three full length novels, Time to Love Again, Shadows in the Attic, and Designed for Love

"Roseanne Dowell, a writer who can give Nora Roberts a run for her money, has three of her stories being offered for one price. Like Roberts, Dowell has a way of combining just the right amount of romance and intrigue to keep the reader wondering if love will survive amid what's happening. Then you get the great mystery part of it: What is going on? Who is doing all of this? Where will it all end? I haven't guessed the culprit yet in any of them. Such fun" ~ 5 Stars, Heather Haven, Amazon Reader and Verified Purchase
