The Kate Huntington Mysteries Collection IV

The final 2 books in the Kate Huntington Mysteries, PLUS Book 1 in the spinoff series—starring Lieutenant Judith Anderson—the C.o.P. on the Scene police procedurals. (Fans of JA Jance’s Sheriff Joanna Brady and JD Robb’s Eve Dallas will love this new female cop on the scene!)

Anxiety Attack ~ An operative working for Kate’s P.I. husband is shot during an undercover assignment involving industrial espionage, and the alleged shooter turns out to be one of her psychotherapy clients—a man suffering from severe social anxiety. Kate believes he’s innocent and tensions build at home…until a suspicious suicide brings the case to a head. Is the spy tying up loose ends, and is Kate’s husband one of those loose ends?

Police Protection ~ A story ripped from real-life headlines! A police detective is found standing over the body of an unarmed African-American boy, with no memory of what happened. Investigating behind the scenes, Kate Huntington and her P.I. husband determine that this was more than just a bad shoot by a stressed-out cop. They’d better figure out what really happened soon… before another life is lost.

Lethal Assumptions ~ Eight days into her new job as Chief of Police in a small Florida city, Judith Anderson finds herself one step behind a serial killer. In a race to save lives, she’ll need every talent and instinct that made her a star homicide detective in Baltimore. But will that be enough this time?


Other Projects:  I’m doing final edits on the next Marcia Banks and Buddy book, To Bark or Not to Bark. And I’ve started the first draft of the next Judith Anderson, C.o.P. on the Scene story.

Stay tuned!!

 

Yay! Lethal Assumptions is Live!!

Definitely doin’ my happy dance today!

Because Book 1 in my new Police Procedural series is now live.

This series is a spinoff from the Kate Huntington Mysteries. Judith Anderson was the police lieutenant in that series.

So to celebrate, I have the collection of Books 1-5 of the Kate books on sale right now, for 99 cents!

Judith Anderson’s no-nonsense attitude and confidence served her well in her climb to homicide lieutenant in the Baltimore County PD, but that confidence is shaken when she finds herself one step behind a serial killer—just eight days into her new job as Chief of Police in a small Florida city.

The first victim, a female college student, may be a case of wrong place, wrong time. But the bodies keep coming, with a mishmash of MOs, and the murders may be linked to various cases in nearby Jacksonville.

While Judith assumed the CoP job would be challenging, she’s finding it harder than she imagined to establish her authority without alienating and be more hands-on without micro-managing. Plus, evidence is staking up that there’s a leak in her department.

Who can she trust? If she makes the wrong assumption, the wrong decision, it may be her last. In a race to save lives, she’ll draw on every talent and instinct that made her a star in Baltimore. But will that be enough this time?

Fans of JA Jance’s Sheriff Joanna Brady and JD Robb’s Eve Dallas will love this new female cop on the scene!

Lord of the Fleas cover

 

Lord of the Fleas, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery, #9

What could be more innocent than a country flea market?

When service dog trainer Marcia Banks takes up temporary residence with her best friend in Williston, Florida, her goals are simple: spoil her toddler godchildren and train her newest dog’s veteran owner, a vendor at a local flea market.

Ha, the universe has other plans. When the owner of the flea market is found dead and her client is a prime suspect, she discovers that nothing is as it seems—from the flea market owner himself, to the ornate dragonhead cane he gave to her client, to the beautiful but not very bright young woman whom her client has a crush on.

The only true innocent in the bunch seems to be her guileless, partially paralyzed client. But when he shares a confidence that puts her in a double bind with local law enforcement, she’s not sure she can even trust him.

Despite her promises to her new husband, the only way out of her no-win dilemma seems to be to find the real killer. The flea market, however, is hiding more secrets, and at least one of them could be deadly.

 

Available for Preorder at these retailers ~ $2.99 during preorder period; goes up to $4.99 after release on May 26th!

The day of the big bash, Marcia and her dog Buddy witness a public fight between the couple, and just hours later, Dan is found with a Roman candle through his chest. Was it an accident, or was it murder? And is Jess a killer, as the sheriff’s department believes?

The Sound and The Furry Is Live!!

The Sound and The Furry, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Cozy Mystery #7 is now Live!

The Sound and The Furry book cover

A tropical paradise turns deadly.

Service dog trainer Marcia Banks had thought it was the perfect arrangement—stay on her client’s private Gulf-coast island and get the human phase of the training done more quickly, while enjoying a much-needed break from the chaos of house renovations back home.

This certainly wasn’t the tranquil getaway she’d envisioned, however. Two resident ghosts, a sour-puss housekeeper and bearing witness to her client’s shaky marriage are bad enough. But within days, she’s discovered even deeper and darker layers of dysfunction.

Via emails and static-filled phone calls, fiancé Will Haines convinces her to get herself and her dog Buddy out of there, but before Marcia can accomplish this, a late-season hurricane abruptly changes course and strands them on the island… with a murderer.

Just $2.99 for a limited time, so grab yours today!!

Police Protection is LIVE!!!

Hey folks,

Police Protection, #10 in the Kate Huntington Mysteries, is now live on all major ebook retailers!!

A story ripped from real-life headlines! A police detective is found in an alley standing over the body of an unarmed African-American boy. Gun in hand and groggy from a concussion, he has no memory of what happened.

To the police department’s I.A. division, it’s a slam-dunk. But various forces push psychotherapist Kate Huntington and her P.I. husband to investigate behind the scenes, and what they find doesn’t add up. Why did the boy’s oldest brother disappear on the same day? And did the third brother, who’s on the autism spectrum and nonverbal, witness something relevant?

For Kate, the case becomes personal as she connects with the grieving mother, whose dead son was the same age as her Billy. Then a series of seemingly unrelated events emerges as a pattern of intentional obstruction of their investigation, and Kate and Skip conclude two things.

Whatever happened in that alley, it was more than just a bad shoot by a stressed-out cop. And while the answers may come from unexpected sources, they had better find them soon… before another life is lost.

Anxiety Attack, A Kate Huntington Mystery #9

Kate Huntington’s P.I. husband had doubts from the beginning about this case, a complicated one of top secret projects and industrial espionage. Now one of his best operatives is in the hospital fighting for his life, and Kate believes the alleged shooter the police arrested—one of her psychotherapy clients who suffers from social anxiety—is innocent.

Tensions build between the couple, until a suspicious suicide brings the case to a head. Is the spy/killer 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.

Patches In The Rye, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery #5:
.

Nothing about her new client is what service dog trainer Marcia Banks expected—from the posh house that says family money to his paranoid preoccupation with his sister’s love life—but when he dangles a thousand dollar retainer under her nose, she can’t resist his request to play private detective.

In between training sessions with her client’s new service dog, Marcia learns the sister’s boyfriend has a sketchy past. He seems to have turned over a new leaf, but as she digs deeper, more disturbing and confusing questions arise. How is a disastrous frat party five years ago linked to blackmail, prostitutes, and murder today? And who is behind the wheel of the black SUV that keeps trying to turn Marcia and her canine companion Buddy into roadkill?

Marcia can’t let it go, not when there are innocents at risk who are depending on her to find the truth. But the deepest, darkest truth is one she wishes she never uncovered.
