Her life took a drastic turn when she opposed Odin  to protect her beloved— a mortal. Hlif's selfless act of love saw her cursed and cast from her celestial home to live as a mere mortal amongst the humans.

Announcement From Carrie L. Carr:

Hi there! As you can tell, I've been working hard at revising and publishing my backlog of books, now as an independent author. 

The Way Things Should Be, Book 6 in the Somerville series (Featuring Lex & Amanda) is NOW available via Amazon Kindle and free on Kindle Unlimited -

Amazon US -


Amanda Cauble-Walters is thrilled as her sister, Jeannie, prepares for the birth of her first child. Amanda's elation is offset by the compelling desire to have a child of her own, but she fears that her wife, Lex, doesn't want children.

Lex is so busy trying to hang onto newly acquired land that she doesn't realize what's going on with Amanda. When a stranger claiming to be a long-lost relative insinuates herself into the family, Lex sees red.

The tragic loss of someone dear to them dampens the joy of Jeannie's baby, bringing pain – and hope, to them all.
