"Welcome to Stoney Creek where you'll find an irresistible blend of suspense, romance, and Southern hospitality. But I warn you--once you start reading it will be hard to leave!" - Betsy Brannon Green, popular novelist. Stoney Creek, Alabama is "A sleek romantic thriller," says New York Times Bestselling author Deborah Smith.

Reader response for the second novel from mother and daughter writers has been tremendous. In fact, Stoney Creek, Alabama recently hit the top 10 bestseller list at Books a Million. "It's a very rewarding thing to hear that people are staying up half the night because they can't put the book down," Jennifer says.

Sandra agrees. "I got an email recently where a reader explained that she met me when I was doing a book signing and decided to purchase a copy. She read through the day and into the night, stopping only to feed her children. She said that she'd lost interest in reading when her boys came along but rediscovered that love after reading Stoney Creek, Alabama. She was heading out the following weekend to buy a copy our first novel, Livin' in High Cotton. When Jenn and I hear stories like that, it makes it all worth it."

Livin' in High Cotton is Sandra and Jennifer's first novel. It came out in 2004 and was a regional bestseller. It has been used as course material in a literature class at the University of North Alabama.

Both native Alabamians, Poole and Youngblood are known for their ability to paint an accurate picture of the south. "We're very proud of our heritage," Youngblood says, and our novels are living proof. We write about real people who make up the living, breathing soul of the south."

The idea for Stoney Creek, Alabama, germinated when Sandra was a human resource manager of a hardwood sawmill in the 1980s. The authentic Southern flavor of Stoney Creek, Alabama has the nostalgic whisper of fresh honeysuckles on the vine but packs enough punch to keep the reader turning pages at a feverish pace to get to the end. Just out of college, something is telling Sydney Lassiter that she needs to return to the town of Stoney Creek, Alabama where she grew up. She hasn't been there since her father was killed in a boating accident--or was he murdered? She takes a job as a safety consultant at the local sawmill--the same place where her father worked. In Stoney Creek, you don't ask the kinds of questions that Sydney is asking. There are too many secrets--secrets that someone will do anything to keep hidden. To complicate matters, she becomes torn in a confusing love quadrangle--two men, and the other woman, who seems to want both of them. And both men seem to have some connection to the death of her father.

Sydney's inner demons come alive when she delves deeper into the past, trying to heal the shattered woman within. The closer she gets to the truth, the more she fears that it will destroy not only her, but the people and town she has come to love.
