“A page-turning mystery that does not let you go.” Ruby Standing Deer, Author of “Shining Light’s Saga” Series
“Mysterious and richly realized. Fink is a masterful storyteller.”
Nillu Nasser, Author of Hidden Colours
"In The Clovis Dig, a surprising discovery at an apple orchard in central Washington upends the life of orchardist Claire Courtney. And from there things only get more mysterious. The Clovis Dig is the perfect mix of mystery and archaeological intrigue, sure to please fans of books like Fleshmarket Alley by Ian Rankin and Break No Bones by Kathy Reichs. Teri Fink is an excellent writer and The Clovis Dig is a gripping book."

Invisible by Day
A Downton Abbey setting
A beautiful and ambitious woman
The horrors of war
The redemption of love
Invisible by Day is the story of young Kate McLaren and the three men in her life: the aristocrat who wants to bed her, the boy from her village who wants to marry her, and the man who must save her. Born into the Scottish working class, Kate McLaren is a servant in a noble household in the early 1900’s until she falls in love with a man who changes everything. But change has many faces, and their complicated relationship leads her to the mansions of London where she encounters different kinds of love, the horrors of war, and ultimately, confrontation with the enemy himself.
"If readers are expecting a simple love triangle here, they’ll quickly find that Fink’s story has much more to offer. Fancy cars, espionage, and even morphine addiction wind up playing roles in a narrative that, much like Kate, keeps rushing forward, no matter what obstacles are in the way." -- Kirkus Review

What Readers Are Saying
“Teri Fink's suspense driven novel offers readers captivating characters, involved in powerful relationships, within a dramatic historical setting. Every chapter leaves you hungry for the next.”
—Cathie E. West, Author
"If you loved Downton Abbey, you’ll devour Invisible by Day. Teri Fink recreates World War I era England with vivid details, but while she paints the era with love, she doesn’t sentimentalize it. Instead, she captures much of the brutality, sexism and class warfare that defined the times. A detailed, sweeping novel that explores three of the most compelling facets of human life: love, war, and redemption. Readers will be marking their calendars for Teri Fink's next release.”
—A.C. Fuller, Author
"Often books are good because of the story. There are a few that are special because the words are beautiful and take you to another place and time. Those are harder to find. You have both! I loved it! I look forward to your next book!"
—Debbie Taylor, Reader
A very fun read. I love historical fiction and this story really took me to the time and place of World War I in London. The main character was not born into nobility but made a life for herself, despite mistakes along the way. She was a character to invest in and care about. I read it quickly because I couldn't put it down. The novel provided both heartbreak and hope and leaves the reader feeling like they have taken the journey along with Kate. Highly recommend!
—Gail Gilbert, Reader
"Invisible by Day grabbed me on the opening page and kept me reading all the way to the end. The story of feisty Kate MacLaren in 1910 London instantly caught my interest. This book provided a real flavor for the city, the fashion and the culture of the times as well as characters that came fully to life as they faced the daunting challenges of the era. Teri Fink gave us a fast paced story that's full of surprises, and a leading lady you can't help but root for. A great read. I can't wait for her next book."
—Jeri B., Author
"Teri Fink's first novel is a genuine page-turner, the kind of book you want to have on a long flight or a lazy few days on a beach. It richly rewards the investment in time and money required to read it, and that's not a small thing. I don't want to say much about the characters or plot, because discovering them is the entertainment you'll get from the book. However, the people and events are completely believable, in part because of how well the author researched the time period and how stylishly she describes it. She very obviously knows how to put words and sentences together. This book is suspenseful, fast-paced, and satisfying. If you're looking for entertainment, it would be hard to do any better than this. I recommend it most highly."
—L. F. Smith, Reader
"This book is a gripping story that draws the reader into another time and another place. I found it east to read, difficult to put down. I am very impressed with Teri Fink's writing, and look forward to reading more of her work in the future."
—Debbie L. Thune, Reader
"The story grabbed me right away and kept me involved throughout. I kept being surprised as the plot and characters continued to unfold and develop. I was only disappointed when the novel ended ~ I wanted more. Hoping a sequel is in the works!"
