Dianne Venetta is the award-winning author of contemporary romance and cozy mystery novels, including Jennifer's Garden, winner of Best in Romance for 2012 Indie Discovery Awards. When not knee-deep in romance, she contributes gardening advice to various websites and publications and has been featured on GalTime, Huffington Post, Earth Eats (Indiana Public Radio), eHow and Ideal Home Garden among others.
She lives in Central Florida with her husband and two children. When not whacking away at her keyboard you'll find her in their organic garden chasing grasshoppers and plucking hornworms all while drawing wild analogies between kids and plants and men. Definitely men. A girl's gotta have fun, right?
Dianne also enjoys volunteering in school gardens and has begun a children's series chronicling her adventures called Wild Tales & Garden Thrills. It's a crazy existence to be sure, but at the end of the day, if she can inspire someone to stop and smell the roses--or rosemary!--kiss their child and spouse good-night, be kind to a neighbor and Mother Earth, then she's done all right.

** I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
I wasn’t sure if “Losing Ladd” was going to be able to live up to “Ladd Haven” but it absolutely surpassed it. While this series started off nice and simple with a quaint southern community it really built and climaxed with a drama that could rival any day time soap.
If one villain wasn’t enough, this time around all three returned and joined forces. Jillian, Jack and Jeremiah are even more dastardly then before and left no one unscathed. It was intriguing to figure out how each character was going to play off the other and who was responsible for what. Even who was going to survive at times came into question. I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to end until the conclusion which is always a bonus.
Felicity grows up substantially in this book. And even though I like Felicity it was nice to see her be tested as to what she is made of. Actually I loved how all the characters came together to protect each other and what is important to them.
I can say with out a doubt this is the perfect conclusion to the Ladd Series.
