Greendale, WI (July 19, 2010)- Local Greendale author Alison Chambers will sign copies of her romantic suspense novel “The Secret Sentinel” at 7:00 p.m. on July 20 at Mystery One Bookstore, 2109 N. Prospect Ave., Milwaukee. She will also be interviewed on Milwaukee Public Radio’s “Lake Effect” program on WUWM, 89.7 FM. on Tuesday, July 20 at 10:45 a.m.


The romantic suspense novel, just published by the Wild Rose Press, received Five Stars from Night Owl Reviews and it was selected as a top pick, calling it a “wonderful read…I loved the characters…the background story is wonderful…look out Nora Roberts, there’s a new author on the horizon.” Romantic Times Book Reviews magazine called “the action fast-moving and the characters intriguing.”


Set in Savannah, Georgia, “The Secret Sentinel” interweaves a unique combination of American history and romance in a search for lost Confederate gold. “When a shy museum curator named Savannah Rutledge steals her father’s treasure map for an upcoming exhibit to impress her boss, she unleashes a Pandora’s box of horror,” Chambers explains. “Her father is killed and she is framed for murder. To atone for her father’s death, she and a mysterious stranger set off on a cross-country chase for the treasure. They must find three lost keys and solve three cryptic rhymes along the way.”

She graduated from Bay View High School and earned her bachelor’s degree from UWM.

The opportunities are amazing.” The Wild Rose Press is a publisher of fine romance in electronic and print formats and won as best publisher in the Preditor’s and Editor’s Readers Poll of 2009.
