Now Available!


Happy, happy hello,

I’m writing to you to let you know that my book Jewell, a Second Chance Novel is now available. I’m so excited and hope that you’ll enjoy reading it. I really enjoyed writing it! 

It was great to be back in Cajun country to romp around the fictional city of Cane, Louisiana, with some of my favorite characters from my first book, Elli — including plucky Tante Izzy(the person y’all ask me about the most!). Tante is back, misbehaving and speaking her mind!

Her charming nephew, Beau, is back, too (another favorite of those who read Elli!). He’s got his watchful eyes on the pretty antiquities expert who has come to Sugar Mill plantation with her unpredictable grandmother, who has dementia. 

No worries if you didn’t read Elli; this book reads well on its own. 

Thank you. I wish you good health, happiness, and lots of memories. 


Here’s what others are saying about it:

“Tender, tense, a sweet yet sexy love story. In Jewell, Tina DeSalvo takes us inside our deep fears and fantasies in a tale as poignant as it is innovative and satisfying.”
-Stella Cameron, New York Times Bestselling Author of the Alex Duggins Mysteries

“Tina DeSalvo did it again. What an awesome book! It’s clever, insightful, fun, and sexy.”
-Cherry Adair, New York Times Best Selling Author of the T-FLAC novels

Cajuns, antiques, a Bourbon Street stripper, plantation history, scheming old ladies and a ridiculously handsome nemesis…

Jewell just wants to give her grandmother one final memory before it’s too late.
…Beau wants to protect his family from the one woman who is capable of scamming them with fake answers to an old family mystery.

Complicated by the well-meaning but interfering Bienvenu clan and Jewell’s unpredictable grandmother with dementia, will it be possible to discover the truth?
