Great Pumpkins at the Ritz

By Nancy Jill Thames

Several years ago I stayed with my husband at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay. As we arrived, pumpkins weighing over six hundred pounds a piece adorned the portico. Truly an amazing site.
Half Moon Bay is noted for it's fall pumpkin festival. People travel from all over the state of California not only to view pumpkins, but to view the beautiful ocean and enjoy sumptuous seafood cuisine

Both "Murder in Half Moon Bay" and "The Mark of Eden" were set in Half Moon Bay. Book 1 revolves around the Ritz-Carlton, while Book 4 finds back-streets of the town and a cruise to Catalina Island in which to unfold. 
Someone said my books often sound like travel logs, and rightly so. I've traveled as an air force brat and as the wife of a business man. My stories incorporate what I've experienced both in locals and cuisine. If you enjoy the finer things in life, you may enjoy the books I write. If not, there are many other genres to choose from.
I invite you to download "Murder in Half Moon Bay" as a free gift from me. 

There's more than pumpkins in the adventures ahead.

        See you in my books!
