Fatal 48 book cover

Celebration turns to nightmare when psychotherapist Kate Huntington’s guest of honor disappears en route to her own retirement party. Kate’s former boss, Sally Ford, has been kidnapped by a serial killer who holds his victims exactly forty-eight hours before killing them.

With time ticking away, the police allow Kate and her P.I. husband to help with the investigation. The FBI agents involved in the case have mixed reactions to the “civilian consultants.” The senior agent welcomes Kate’s assistance as he fine-tunes his psychological profile. His voluptuous, young partner is more by the book. She locks horns out in the field with Kate’s husband, while back at headquarters, misunderstandings abound.

But they can ill afford these distractions. Sally’s time is about to expire.

NOVELLA #2 IS OUT!! Cruel Capers on the Caribbean

CRUEL CAPERS on the CARIBBEAN, the second Kate on Vacation novella is now live on Amazon and other retailers.

Travel vicariously as you and Kate and the gang try to solve a locked-room mystery!

 

Cruel Capers book cover

Trouble seems to find Kate Huntington, even on a Caribbean cruise. She and her friend, Liz, befriend socialite Cora Beall, who is having relationship problems. When Cora is found dead, her cabin locked from the inside, the ship’s captain assumes it’s a suicide.

Kate is skeptical. Her private detective husband begs her to let it go, but the evidence points more and more toward murder. And she can’t stop thinking about Cora’s teenage daughter who is back in the States with her stepfather. Which is worse, thinking your mother committed suicide or being raised by her killer? Or is Cora’s seemingly-innocent, screenwriter boyfriend the real murderer?

And the toughest question of all… how did Cora’s killer get out of a locked room?

Just $1.99 on   AMAZON,   BARNES & NOBLE  and  KOBO.

Official launch date is June 17th, and I have a Book Blast scheduled on several book blogger websites for the 18th through the 20th!

MULTIPLE MOTIVES — New and Improved, just $0.99 (& it’s finally out in paperback!!)

ANNOUNCEMENT!! I’ve decided to keep MULTIPLE MOTIVES (e-book version) at $0.99 through at least the month of June. So now’s the time to tell your mystery-loving friends about my series.

Especially since I’ve gone back and updated the text. No, I didn’t change anything about the story or the characters. I just corrected some novice-writer goofs that were in there.

And finally I’ve got it out in paperback! Amazon has a new program (well, relatively new) called Matchbook. If you buy a paperback copy of Multiple Motives, you can get an e-book version for free! Any mystery lovers amongst your friends with birthdays coming up soon? Buy them the paperback, you keep the e-book!

ECHOES is Out and Only $0.99 thru Nov. 4

creepy cover for Echoes, A Story of Suspense

My mystery/ghost story is now available on these e-retailers:

AMAZON    BARNES & NOBLE    KOBO    APPLE

And it is ON SALE for the reduced price of $0.99 thru November 4!!

Here’s a short excerpt:

A silver-gray sedan was already parked under the bright red autumn leaves of the big maple next to the garage. Excitement and disappointment vied for dominance as James parked and got out of his own car. His friends had beat him here.

Why was the front door ajar? He nudged it open. No suitcases in the entranceway.

In the living room, the dust covers had been pulled off the furniture and dumped in a pile in a corner. James smiled. Annaleise had intentionally done this, he was sure. She wanted to make the place ready for him for a change. He went into the kitchen.

Yup. Three long-stemmed glasses sat on the table. No doubt two bottles of Chardonnay were chilling in the fridge.

James walked back into the living room. Was that a hint of lemon oil? He drew in a deep breath, then smiled again. The minx had polished the furniture!

“Annaleise! Charles! I’m here.”

No answer.

He climbed the stairs and dropped his duffel bag next to the door of his bedroom. The master bedroom, the room he reserved for his married friends, was down the hall. As he neared it, he hesitated. Maybe they were taking a nap, or ‘having a romp,’ as Annaleise called it.

James stopped in the middle of the hall and listened. The house was as silent as old houses ever are–only the normal faint creaks and moans. He took a step toward the door. It too was ajar.

His heart started pounding for no apparent reason. Then his brain registered the odor, sweet and coppery.

He pushed the door open, then breathed out a sigh of relief. They were lying on the bed, fully clothed and sound asleep.

He stepped forward to grab the doorknob and pull the door shut again.

The odor smacked him in the face. Then the colors on the far wall registered. The sunny yellow paint he’d applied four summers ago was streaked with orange and red.

This is a great HALLOWEEN read!!
