DYING FOR A DATE (Book 1) # 1 Amazon Bestseller in Humor and Cozy mysteries

Unsure if she is looking for Mr. Right, or Mr. Every Other Saturday Night, divorced mother of two, Laurel McKay reluctantly joins THE LOVE CLUB, a popular local dating service. Dressed to kill, she meets bachelor number one at a trendy restaurant. But the date is a bust, literally, when the guy decides Laurel is dessert, and she breaks his nose with her cell phone. It gets even worse when the man is found murdered the next morning, and Laurel has his blood on her clothes.

Despite her now being a person of interest to the police, Laurel bravely ventures out on date number two. When that unlucky bachelor disappears during dinner, Laurel’s only alibi is a bottle of Dom Perignon. The sexy investigating detective thinks she’s innocent and is worried she may be the next target. That’s more than enough motivation for Laurel to find a murderer determined to kill her social life––before dating becomes a dead end she can’t escape.

DYING FOR A DANCE (Book 2) Northern California Publisher and Authors Fiction Winner and 2012 LEFTY Finalist Best Humorous Mystery

Discovering she has two left feet isn’t the biggest problem for Laurel McKay when she agrees to learn a foxtrot routine for her best friend’s Lake Tahoe wedding. Stumbling over the lifeless body of a sexy Russian dance star with her broken shoe heel stuffed in his mouth… is far worse. Almost as bad as running into the hunky detective she dated briefly before he disappeared from her life.

When another death occurs on the ballroom floor, Laurel finds herself waltzing her way into the dark secrets of the Golden Hills Dance Studio. Navigating kids, career, wedding planning and murder requires some fancy footwork. Can Laurel tango with a killer and stay alive?

When Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. Her post-wedding holiday upends after a beautiful hula dancer is found dead on the rocks below the oceanfront restaurant owned by Laurel’s brother and sister-in-law.

When a family member is arrested for the murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations–a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano–reveal their deadly side. And where is her hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend detective when she needs him?

Laurel zip-lines and four-wheels her way through the island paradise unearthing long hidden secrets. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?

Can the ancient power of a pagan well truly change destinies?

Two people, intrinsically linked, are at the center of this spell-binding tale of love and magic. Their lives, and the lives of those around them, have been profoundly affected by a single event. A brief moment in time that, if altered, will right so many wrongs.

Is it possible to turn back time? To change the paths of those whose hearts have been broken? Whose lives have been lost?
Perhaps. The power of the well is great, but there is another, far greater power at work in the world.

Of all the forces under Heaven, love is the most powerful.

It changes everything.

Mac knows Rogue is his from the moment she holds him hostage, but she’ll never let him claim her…

If Mac ran the world, everything would be better. Everyone would say what they felt, mean what they said, and never, ever get offended. At least that’s what he thought his own personal utopia would look like, until he met Rogue.

Rogue’s life was just fine, thank you very much. An expert in her chosen field of danger and lies, she was well on her way to retiring by 30, as long as she could keep her curious mental slide under control. Until that hot-as-sin cop showed up, turning her life upside down, bringing her everything she’d always-and never-wanted.

USA Today Bestselling Author

As a mechanic, Brad’s good with his hands. And he wants to put them all over Sara.

Sara might be a doctor who works with birds, but Brad’s the one who knows how to find all the right spots to make her purr. She wouldn’t mind that, if only she wasn’t ten years plus—mumble, mumble—older than him.

And if he wasn’t her best friend’s brother. Her younger brother.

Brad doesn’t care about their ages or the differences in the worlds they come from. They’re roommates, living together while Sara’s apartment is being renovated.

But they aren’t living alone. Brad’s big sister lives there too. And Sara’s pretty sure her bestie would prefer not to hear Sara having a screaming O with her brother.

Or a few dozen of them.

Then again, maybe rules are meant to be broken. And perhaps opposites attract—and age differences don’t matter nearly as much as other numbers.

Like how many days it takes to fall in love.

First Lieutenant Robert Davidson. The son of an American military legend and a war hero who died in combat during the Afghanistan conflict.

Or did he?

The answer could bring down a secret military empire – as well as a guy named Max Bowman.

Max is a rapidly aging ex-CIA desk jockey who gets the job of tracking down the truth about Davidson – but his chances of actually discovering it are about half of that of finding a horse wearing a kimono. What Max doesn’t know is that nobody wants the facts – and nobody expects Max to find them.

But Max has to pay the rent. So he takes on the job, which takes him on a road trip into the heart of America’s darkness as well as his own, where he has to deal with exploding homes, brutal murders, a sexy heiress, a misguided teenager and Max’s girlfriend back home who’s cursing him out on a regular basis.

And, oh yeah, a para-military organization that’s just waiting for the right moment to kill him.
