Oh HEY! Welcome to my website.

At DawnDugle.com, we try not to take ourselves too seriously. Life is just too damned short to go around with a frown on your face all the time. Plus - wrinkles. (Okay, I have wrinkles, but those are laugh lines that I earned every last one of them.)

Anyway... where was I?

Oh yes. Seriousness.

Here's what we do take seriously:

Want to laugh? Look on the bright side? Check out my stories here.

No matter what, it's a great day to have a great day. We hope you're having one too. (Especially after looking at the totally awesome 70s wallpaper we used to have in my house growing up... You're welcome.)

Reviews for the Flamingo Cove Series

“I can’t believe how fabulous [A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis] was. The 2nd in a series I never want to end.
Intriguing, funny, sexy & heartwarming all rolled into one.
This would make a great TV series!”

This would make a great TV series! MJ, purchased 'A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis'

A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis was a perfect follow-up to A Hot Flash of Homicide. The wise-cracking Wysdom Ward is back and more badass than ever.  This plot is high-octane all the way. From the opening chase to the final facedown, Wysdom is not letting up when it comes to solving the case and saving her PERSON. I thoroughly enjoyed her snarky outlook despite the desperate situation and was satisfied with the *fans face* happy ending ;)”

High-octane plot all the way Susan Farris, reviewed 'A Counterfeit Midlife Crisis: Flamingo Cove Book 2'

Dawn Dugle is a FIND! A Hot Flash of Homicide is crazy sexy and funny as hell while being a top-notch police procedural. The Ward family of cops and the mysterious God Among Men are compelling. I’m reminded of John D. MacDonald—if he’d written M/F slash fiction. Thank goodness Ms. Dugle has committed to making this a series.

For anyone that is of “that age”, Wysdom’s struggles are real. Hot flashes, irritability, and everything else that goes with perimenopause make every day an adventure. Add an infuriating ex-husband and working with your family and you have Wysdom’s struggles. When her family forgets her 40th birthday she decides to find her own gift.

Luke is fine with being Wysdom’s birthday gift. And their chemistry is instant. But when he’s accused of murder, Wysdom is placed in a very precarious position.

A little romantic suspense mixed in with a little RomCom makes this a joy to read. I didn’t want to put it down and that last page is a doozy.

Can’t wait to see what is in store for Wysdom and Luke.

Great combination of romantic suspense and RomCom Stephanie Hutchinson, bought 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'

Very, very funny and entertaining. A quick read. Easy to identify with the lead character and her perimenopause. Ready to go onto the next book in the series.

Very, Very Funny & Entertaining Mary Ryan, purchased 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'

I never ever read an entire book in less than 24 hours. I could not put [A Hot Flash of Homicide] down. Totally enthralled with the twists and turns. Never predictable. The characters are well-defined and interesting. Can’t wait for more in the series!

A page-turner with spice! MJ, bought 'A Hot Flash of Homicide'
