New Release Out Nov. 18, 2016 . . . MOLTO MAYHEM
"I have already had a golden life, Aiden.” Lucia breathed, forcing herself not to cry. "I couldn't survive losing it again.”
Home again in Italy, fifteen years after her parents’ tragic death there, Lucia is determined not to lose anything more to the passionate chaos of the beautiful country. The problem is that a part of her she has locked away for years both fears and yearns for that passion. Soon after her plane lands, she's confronted with the mayhem of an aunt who manages the family construction business using mismatched Godfather quotes; the intensity of an uncle who approaches Italian ingredients as if they held the answer to creation; and the love of a quirky English guy whose crumbling villa takes them on a journey around Italy in search of his missing religious icons.
It all makes Lucia wonder, is it possible to find, rather than lose, your life through passion?

“I did what?”
Twenty-eight year old Gabriella Bessu is St. Therese’s meticulous wedding ceremony coordinator. So the fact that she has mistakenly signed her newest couple up for an annulment, rather than a wedding, sends her Catholic guilt into overdrive.
But who can blame her? The groom is gorgeous and his two kids tug at Gabriella’s heart in a way that overcomes all her best intentions. Before long, she’s in over her head, fixing her mixed-up plans and helping the children and dad come to terms with their haunting grief for the mother and wife they lost years earlier.
Can Gabriella untangle her own fears and accept the messy life that God has handed them?
Kathy Dunnehoff - Bestselling author of THE DO-OVER
The perfect wedding cake balances the right amount of sweetness and substance. And let me just say if Deanne Wilsted's latest novel, Untangling the Knot, was a slice of wedding cake… I'd be glad I was invited to that wedding! (More...)
Catholic Sentinel - Feb. 12, 2013
WEST LINN — Deanne Wilsted's new book is so Catholic that it opens in a confessional. But Untangling the Knot (Soul Mate Publishing) actually has more to do with another sacrament — marriage.
It's also about human foibles and the dignity of the human spirit, matters that often arise at weddings, for good or ill. The main character, Gabriella, is a wedding planner at St. Therese
Church in Boston. She begins to organize a wedding ceremony for Ryan and Mandy, only to find that, because of her feeling for Ryan and his kids, she is subconsciously sabotaging plans. She, Ryan and his children all need to come to terms with death, God and love in order to accept the family that is meant to be rather than the one Ryan is trying to create.
The kids' mother — Evie — is a catechist who died young of an aneurysm. Her presence is felt in the book, but not in a ghostly way. One publisher wanted Wilsted to hype the paranormal in
the book, but she refused, intent on making it a Catholic read.
Wilsted, who lives in West Linn and attends Resurrection Parish, is to be lauded for
straightforward sentences and paragraphs that read gracefully. . . . (More...)
