Behind a single door lie many forms of Bliss…
TRIANGULATING BLISS is a heartwarming and entertaining novel of second chances, romance, mystery, and the supernatural about a veteran reclaiming his life from the ghosts of war. He doesn’t know that researching an unexplained mystery will change his life forever.
Greg Ellison learns about the suicide of a local sports hero. Reports claim that the suicide was linked to a disappearance from Bliss. The story hits home when Greg opens an email from the athlete, sent just prior to his death, causing Greg to investigate what really happened and uncovering family secrets along the way.
Greg meets Lois Atwater, the vivacious owner of Bliss Bar & Grill, and learns that the athlete’s disappearance was not the only one. Lois and four others have encountered the “Bliss Triangle” as well.
Lois reunites with the love of her life and learns that love never dies; a woman, broken by life, sees how her life might be; a musician’s wife stumbles upon her own grave; a son, caring for his dying mother, learns that endings can be beginnings; and a financial advisor with a shady past finds out how close he is to losing everything.
All of their stories include one figure: a man with dark hair, blue eyes, and a strong jaw.
Then, it’s Greg’s turn.
Greg’s encounter with the mysterious forces at Bliss changes everything. He learns that what brought him to Bliss is not as it appears and that the lives touched by Bliss are powerfully interconnected across space and time.
TRIANGULATING BLISS is a tale of living life to the fullest; but… to understand, you must first disappear.

“The power behind the story leaves you wondering, leaves you turning the pages, and most definitely leaves you wanting more from this author.” Undercover Book Reviews
“I’ve read books about disappearances, even mysterious ones, but haven’t read anything like this. It’s not just the actual plot that makes this book unique; it’s the way in which the author tells the story… There were a few times I was at a loss as to where the author was taking us, and was very surprised and delighted to see where we ended up…I found the story really interesting and enjoyed where the author took the disappearances and how she described their time ‘lost’ and the return. It gave it a very sci-fi feel, and I thought that was brilliant. Overall, I think this is a great read. I would love to see more by this author…I thought this story was unique and interesting and was told well.” Natural Bri Book Review
