I've had this question more than once already this week from readers, so thought I'd respond here too.
The question: "Are there going to be any more books in the Belmont Mansion series? I see another series starting up, with Whisper Her Name (Belle Meade Plantation), and I was just wondering."
YES! And thanks for asking! There are TWO more books coming in both the Belmont Mansion series and the Belle Meade Plantation series. A LASTING IMPRESSION is book 1 for Belmont. And TO WHISPER HER NAME (releasing Oct 23) is book 1 for Belle Meade. The two series "intertwine" and show us different perspectives of Nashville during similar time periods.
Adelicia Acklen (the mistress of Belmont) and the Harding family (from Belle Meade) knew one another, though they moved in different social circles. Belmont was the "summer villa" of the richest woman in the U.S. at the time, and Belle Meade Plantation was the most influential thoroughbred stud farm in American history. So you can imagine how different the settings are, as well as their histories. And how interesting! I hope you think so too.
So as you're reading both the Belmont Mansion series and the Belle Meade Plantation series, know that I'm writing them to "intertwine." Meaning… You *might* just catch glimpses of people from the Belmont books in the Belle Meade books (or visa versa), as well as glimpse a character from a past novel of mine.
Here's the trailer for To Whisper Her Name...

"Pure reading pleasure!"

“Beautiful. Powerful. Stirring. And now written on my heart for all time.”
~ Cindy Woodsmall, New York Times best-selling author of Sisters of the Quilt series
"The thing I love about each of Tamera’s books is that when I’m done, I haven’t just indulged in reading a period romance that I loved, but I’ve acquired a deeper understanding of my relationship with God and have gained nuggets of wisdom that I can apply to my life."
