About me: I write romance and romantic mystery. My writing journey started in the romance world, but I kept adding more and more suspense elements. I transitioned to writing mysteries, but romance is ingrained in my muse, so all of my books are blends of romance and mystery.
Since this is Lindsay's "pink" romance blog, I'll sharea few of my fab romance reviews.
House of Lies launched me into the world of published authors. Hannah visits the house her estranged father bequeathed to her, and finds his business partner, ex-CIA agent Jake. Layer by layer, Hannah uncovers the secrets of her father's covert life and activates a deadly killer.

"I recommend this book to readers who love a novel that pulls at the heartstrings with a side order of suspenseful action." - The Romance Studio

No Second Chance is my horse rescue romance. I donate the profits to a horse rescue charity in Maryland, Days End Farm Horse Rescue. In the book, Hope and Devlin battle their attraction as they dodge a killer's bullets and try to save the horse farm.

"A must Read" - CK2S Kwips and Kritiques
Muddy Waters is the first book I set on the Georgia coast. It's full of two-hundred year old live oaks and Spanish moss and secluded kayaking canals. So many readers fell in love with the town of Mossy Bog that they've been clamoring for a sequel. God willing and the creek don't rise, I'll get that into the rotation! In Muddy Waters, Roxie and Sloan battle their attraction as they search for his lost inheritance. Will they find it before a deadly fortune hunter puts them out of commission?
"Great book, wonderful mystery and a red hot love story underlying it." - The Reading Reviewer
“A pleasant read for a nice fall afternoon. With its home realty and repair subplot, the author obviously knows her stuff” – Romantic Times
"Toussaint wrote the characters with a believability that captures the hearts of readers” – SingleTitles.com
My Cleopatra Jones mystery series has two published books which have had great reviews by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, and more. I hope you'll visit my website http://www.maggietoussaint.com/ to read more about those mystery titles, to read free excerpts from all my work.
