Read full description of the books:
Now in paperback, the acclaimed debut novel featuring the ghost of a murdered cowgirl who guides her grief-stricken father and a disgraced former detective to her killer—and a long-hidden family secret.
The celebrated novel from a shimmering new voice in Southern fiction, Anna Michaels
At twenty-six, Pony Jones is a record-breaking legend of the rodeo circuit. And when the beloved young star’s body is discovered in the northern Alabama woods, it’s Pony’s spirit—invisible to the eye but not to the sixth sense—that guides the living to clues to her murder. Swept up in a whirlwind mystery of intense emotion are her grief-stricken father, Titus, bent on retribution; and Jo Beth Dawson, a hard-drinking former detective with an otherworldly connection with Pony—and an urgent compulsion to uncover the truth. The Huntsville rodeo leads Jo Beth to Titus, and what the unlikely partners find is more shocking than murder itself: long-buried family secrets that will bring them to search their souls for redemption . . . and tie the three of them closer than they could imagine.

Read information about the authorAnna Michaels lives in an enchanted cottage in Mississippi where she grows the roses that served as inspiration for her debut novel, The Tender Mercy of Roses. Her gardens are also filled with cardinals, warblers and mocking birds that swing on a suspended dragon outside her office window and entertain her while she writes.
Her love affair with words started when Anna was a child. She used to read books in a tree swing on her daddy’s farm and dream of being a writer. Also a pianist and sometimes-lyricist, Anna says she “hears the music of words.” She describes her writing process as “recording the melody and the magic of story.”
Anna has a long history of service to her community. She created the first Puppet Ministry in northeast Mississippi. During her fourteen year tenure on the Lee County Library Board of Trustees, she created the Legacy for Learning, a private foundation to support the library. She is also reponsible for creating and securing funding for the Celebration of Writing, a segment of Tupelo's annual Gum Tree Arts Festival that encourages young writers. Currently she serves on the Executive Board of the Tupelo Film Committee.
The arts have always played a big part in Anna's life. She was assistant director of music for Tupelo Community Theater's production of The King and I. In addition to singing in the chorus of many musicals at TCT, Anna has played such roles as M'Lynn in Steel Magnolias, The White Witch in The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, and Chick in Crimes of the Heart.
Anna loves sitting on her front porch swing with friends, singing in her church choir, watching classic movies, playing her vintage baby grand piano, and spending time with her family.
Currently, Anna and her unicorn muse are spinning another magical story. She will share details of her second novel as they unfold.
