Army veteran Jake Black has a new lease on life, thanks to service dog Felix and his trainer, Marcia Banks. Despite a traumatic brain injury, Jake’s able to ride his beloved motorcycle again, with Felix in the sidecar. But his freedom to hit the open road is threatened once more when he and his wife are accused of robbery.

Called in to dog-sit, Marcia can’t sit idly by. She and her mentor dog, Buddy, set out to clear the Blacks’ name, fighting misconceptions about bikers and the nature of TBI along the way. When murder is added to the mix, Marcia redoubles her efforts, despite anonymous threats and her sheriff boyfriend’s strenuous objections, both to her putting herself at risk… and to dragging him along on her wild ride.

book cover

My cover designer outdid herself this time, and this was a tough one. It was hard to come up with the right concept for this complicated plot. Here’s the blurb:

When an operative working undercover for Kate Huntington’s husband is shot, the alleged shooter turns out to be one of Kate’s psychotherapy clients, a man suffering from severe social anxiety. P.I. Skip Canfield had doubts from the beginning about this case, a complicated one of top secret projects and industrial espionage. Now one of his best operatives, and a friend, is in the hospital fighting for his life.

Tensions build when Skip learns that Kate—who’s convinced her client is innocent and too emotionally fragile to survive in prison—has been checking out leads on her own. Then a suspicious suicide brings the case to a head. Is the shooter tying up loose ends? Almost too late, Skip realizes he may be one of those loose ends, and someone seems to have no qualms about destroying his agency or getting to him through his family.

SuicidalSuspicions FINAL

SUICIDAL SUSPICIONS, A Kate Huntington Mystery, #8

Psychotherapist Kate Huntington is rocked to the core when one of her clients commits suicide. How can this be? The woman, who suffered from bipolar disorder, had been swinging toward a manic state. The client’s family blames Kate and they’re threatening to sue for malpractice. She can’t fault them since she blames herself. How could she have missed the signs?

Searching for answers for herself and the grieving parents, Kate discovers some details that don’t quite fit. Is it possible the client didn’t take her own life, or is that just wishful thinking? Questioning her professional judgement, and at times her own sanity, she feels compelled to investigate. What she finds stirs up her old ambivalence about the Catholic Church. Is her client’s death somehow related to her childhood parish?

When she senses that someone is following her, she wonders if she is truly losing it. Or is she getting dangerously close to someone’s secrets?

SORRY, ALL THE ARCs ARE GONE!! 🙁

AND I have 10 Advanced Review Copies I’m giving away, to the first ten people who comment below (be sure to leave your email address). All I ask is that you write an honest review and post it on at least one major e-retailer on or soon after release day (Oct 27th).

Exciting News (and a sneak peek at a cover)!

Okay, fans of Kate Huntington may not be as excited about this as I am.

I woke up one morning a few months ago with an idea in my head for a story that was NOT about Kate.

Why is that exciting? Because the only fiction I’ve ever written were Kate Huntington stories. As much as I love Kate–and I very much intend to keep writing about her–it is quite reassuring to know that I will still be able to write when she gets too old to chase killers. 🙂

So I wrote the story, polished it, and now I am about to publish it. It’s a little bit creepy, has a ghost or two in it, and is quite suspenseful. I should have it out well before Halloween. (For once my timing is good!)

Here’s a sneak peek at the great cover Melinda VanLone (Book Cover Corner) developed for me. I love it!!

And the next Kate Huntington adventure will be out soon also.  Zero Hero is in its final polishing stages.

 creepy cover for Echoes, A Story of Suspense

 ECHOES, A Story of Suspense:

James Fitzgerald is looking forward to a weekend getaway with friends, at the country house that once belonged to his parents. Instead he walks in on a bloodbath. And a cryptic message on a shower curtain points to him as the killer.

The small town sheriff is smarter than he looks. He knows he doesn’t have enough evidence to make an arrest… yet.

Virtually under house arrest, James tries to distract himself from his grief and worry by investigating his parents’ backgrounds. Maybe he can find an explanation for the strange fainting spells he’s been having. He finds out more than he bargained for, and wonders if sometimes it’s better to let sleeping ghosts lie.

COMING SOON!!

COLLATERAL CASUALTIES Cover Reveal

Told ya it was awesome! Thank you, Martina Dalton of The Authors’ Redroom.

COLLATERAL CASUALTIES, A Kate Huntington Mystery (Book 5)

When a former client reaches out to psychotherapist Kate Huntington and reveals a foreign diplomat’s dark secret, then dies of ‘natural causes’ just days later, Kate isn’t sure what to think. Was the man delusional or is she now privy to dangerous information?

Soon she discovers her client was totally sane… and he was murdered. Someone is now trying to eliminate her, and anyone and everyone she might have told. Forced into hiding, she and her husband, Skip, along with the operatives of his private investigating agency, struggle to stay one step ahead of a ruthless killer.

Skip and his P.I. partner are good investigators, but this time they may be in over their heads… and they all could end up drowning in this sea of international intrigue.

 

Like all the books in the series, this is also designed to work well as a stand-alone.

I’m currently hard at work on Book 6 (about two-thirds through first draft) and have started the next Kate on Vacation novella. I also have an outline for Book 7, but I’m resisting the temptation to work on it until I have the other two projects completed.
