Amelia’s next misadventure,

is on Pre-Order Now! 

August in River City is so hot it frays nerves and fries brains, which might explain how Maxie got tangled up in not one, but two murders. For two different clients, no less! 

It all starts when Maxie’s friend tries to hire her to kill her husband. Maxie thinks it’s a joke until the husband, a big, ugly bruiser who might have been working for the mob, is found with a bullet between his eyes, and her friend is arrested for his murder.

The second death has been classified as an accident, not murder. Which would be fine with Maxie if she weren’t convinced that her client, a little old lady with a preference for Earl Gray tea and a talent for playing the ponies, isn’t sharing all she knows. Besides, if it’s not murder, why is hunky homicide detective Ben Trueblood poking his nose into her investigation? And if Trueblood’s getting involved, how can she possibly stop her meddling fairy godmother Amelia from really mucking things up?

Brandy’s Next Adventure,


is on Pre-Order, too! 

These days, Brandy’s got a cute cottage on the beach, great friends, super neighbors, and a job she loves. The DEA has (reluctantly) returned her car and restored her bank account and credit cards (long story, best forgotten). The IRS may have finally found some of the money her dead husband squirreled away in illegal offshore accounts. And said husband’s not so friendly friends are now too busy facing murder charges to worry about hounding her over those same accounts.


For Brandy, life is definitely looking up…until she walks out her front door one morning and finds a dead body on her doorstep!

The Brandy Wyne Mysteries

What would you do if your jerk of a husband died in a car crash two days, five hours, and fourteen minutes before your first appointment with a divorce lawyer? Especially when you found out he died in a brand new Porsche you didn't know he owned and left you a fortune you didn't know he had? 

For Brandy, figuring out the answers is landing her in a heap more trouble 

than she ever dreamed possible!
