From its beginning as a small but sought-after European outpost, New Jersey has played a key role in the establishment and growth of the New World. One of the thirteen original Colonies, New Jersey today is well known for its progressive-minded residents who take pride in their state’s long history. It Happened In New Jersey goes behind the scenes to tell its story, in short episodes that reveal the intriguing people and events that have shaped the Garden State. Learn about John Honeyman, a Patriot spy who risked his life for George Washington’s troops, effectively turning the tide of the American Revolution. Relive the legendary blizzard of 1888, a deadly "perfect storm" of frigid temperatures and historic snowfall that swept in without warning and paralyzed the East Coast for days. Laugh till your sides hurt through a humorous retelling of the 1938 farcical “news” radio broadcast that sent panicked listeners fleeing for their lives from an imaginary alien invasion. Follow the now-famous "Jersey Baboon" as she tweets her adventures while scampering through the yards of unsuspecting neighbors after her escape from a zoo.

It Happened in the Pine Barrens is a compelling saga of love, death and destiny set in the heavily forested area of coastal plain stretching across southern New Jersey. Casellas newly published book transforms this Pinelands into a center of thrilling events that arouse the curiosity and excitement of fi ction fans through three riveting stories: Snakes with Ruby Eyes, Love and Death in the Pines and Closure in the Pines. Snakes with Ruby Eyes follows the mysterious turn of events in the life of Elizabeth Little. After the death of Catherine, artist mother and owner of The Little Antique Shop, Beth strangely inherits a huge amount of cash and a long list of questions about her parents life. Stan Turner, who perseveringly pines for her love and affection, witnesses and supports Beth throughout her journey towards self-rediscovery. Love and Death in the Pines picks up the story from where the fi rst tale left off. It revolves around the entwined destiny of two disparate people Dr. James Bradley, a physician and an undercover FBI agent, and Dr. Meghan Malloy, an art history professor. They met at the opening of The Pines Antique Shop. James was invited by his friend, Meghans aunt, now proprietor of The Pines Antique Shop (previously The Little Antique Shop). Meg had created an art gallery for the shop to display the artwork of Catherine Little. Both never knew that a chance encounter would lead them to love. Closure in the Pines completes the trilogy in stunning fashion. James wants to resign from the FBI to work as a physician at a Veterans Administration hospital. His resignation is denied. Meghan returns to her teaching position. While fi nalizing some cases, Meghan suddenly disappears. A manhunt ensues. Drug traffi cking and gunfi ght also makes this fi nal story a perfect closing salvo. However, as one of the characters aptly put it, There is no closure in the crime business. Creatively blending fast-paced drama, mystery and romance with the slow-paced life in Pine Barrens, Casella has successfully put the place on the map for another remarkable reason. It Happened in the Pine Barrens is a book that leaves readers deeply satisfi ed yet eagerly longing for answers to more questions inherent in the saga.
