My Old Kentucky Homicide   
Bourbon B&B Mysteries book #1

Kentucky native Jess Walker's big-city career has kept her too busy to visit her sisters and hometown. However, she relents when she's invited to celebrate her nephew's third birthday at the newly established Three Sisters B&B in the heart of bourbon country. The nostalgic bubble is quickly popped however when Jess realizes her family hasn't been entirely honest with her. She was invited not so much for a family reunion, but to help them impress some VIP guests for inclusion in a tourism co-op on the bourbon trail.
 
Old resentments arise, and the sisters are at loggerheads immediately. But when one of the VIP guests is found dead, things only get worse. The sheriff is intent on treating the death as an accident, blaming it on unsafe conditions at the B&B. But the sisters know this was murder. Jess has always been the fixer of the family, so she jumps in to protect her sisters and their B&B's reputation. With the remaining guests and the attractive—and single—owner of the nearby whiskey barrel factory all suspects, Jess has her work
cut out for her. And it turns out, she can't do it alone. All three sisters will need to work in perfect harmony in order to find the perpetrator of the Old Kentucky Homicide.

Bluegrass Homicide   
Bourbon B&B Mysteries book #2

 

The Three Sisters B&B in the heart of Kentucky's bourbon country is starting to flourish—thanks to the hard work of Jess Walker and her two sisters, Em and CJ. 

 

With a big auction coming up at the horse farm next door to the B&B, there's an overflow crowd at both properties. And while the sisters may love the full rooms, the workload is enough that the middle sister, Em, sneaks away for a much needed break with the horse she boards at the farm. Only instead of her horse, what she finds in the stall is the dead body of the farm's beloved vet! 

 

 

The incompetent sheriff assumes it was a tragic accident, but the sisters have trouble believing it...even before the victim's new, handsome young partner arrives and insists it was murder. Em, Jess, and CJ vow to find the truth, no matter what it may take.Together they uncover a variety of likely suspects, including the farm's manager, a B&B guest, and a horse buyer who was banned from the auction. Before long, it's not just a miscarriage of justice to worry about, but the imminent danger of another Bluegrass Homicide, this time at the B&B.

Danger Cove Mysteries book #4

Someone has murder all sewn up. 

Keely Fairchild left her previous profession as a high-powered attorney to lead a quieter life as a certified quilt appraiser. But when she's asked by the Danger Cove quilt guild's president to prove that a local dealer is selling cheap reproduction quilts as expensive antiques, Keely's "quiet" new job turns dangerous. While Keely and the guild president are in the dealer's shop, the crooked quilt peddler is killed. Unfortunately, the local police think the guild president has the best motive, and Keely stakes her professional reputation, and possibly her life, on proving that the police have the wrong person. Suspects abound, including the dealer's business partner, a rival dealer whose quilts were illicitly copied for the reproductions, an arts reporter who's been threatened with a libel suit, and even the director of the local museum. But which one murdered the crooked dealer? And which one has Keely squarely in his sights now...

Clues in Calico (A Danger Cove Quilting Mystery)   
Danger Cove Mysteries book #11

 

For quilt appraiser Keely Fairchild, the opportunity to appraise more than a hundred quilts feels almost too good to be true. And then she learns the bad news: the quiltmaker was murdered and the police have no leads. Keely suspects that the quilts hold the key to the dead woman's death as well as to her life. While looking for answers in the quilts, Keely uncovers a variety of suspects, including the greedy heir, a smarmy used-car salesman, a feuding neighbor, and even a rival quiltmaker. As if this project weren't enough to complicate Keely's quiet life, she's also under a short deadline to find new meeting space for the quilters' guild and she's running out of time to decide whether to let charming local reporter Matt Viera into her life. Of course, those other problems may not matter if the quiltmaker's killer strikes again, this time to prevent Keely from finding the clues in the calico.

A Slaying in the Orchard (A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery)  
Danger Cove Mysteries book #16

Labor Day weekend starts with a bang in Danger Cove when a dead body is found in the orchard of Maria Dolores' mentor and maybe-boyfriend, Merle! While it's clear the murder took place long ago, the police are still keeping Merle tied up, leaving Maria on her own to run the local farmers' market. She's prepared for the petty squabbles, disorganized vendors, and even a rowdy group of costumed pirates—it comes with the territory. But she isn't prepared for the fresh body found in an isolated corner of the market! 

Maria would like to leave the investigation to the local homicide detective, but he's stretched thin with two separate murders, and her nemesis—the farmer who lost out to her for the manager's job—is demanding quick answers or else. With a nearly endless array of suspects, since the victim had upset just about everyone at the market, Maria has her work cut out for her! Can she prevent another murder in the market...or will she end up the next victim?

A Secret in the Pumpkin Patch (A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery)  
Danger Cove Mysteries book #17

 

It's Halloween, and Maria Dolores is hoping for a trouble-free weekend, the last one before the Lighthouse Farmers' Market closes for the winter. But her hopes are dashed when a state agricultural inspector threatens to shut down the market prematurely...right before a young woman falls to her death from the lighthouse cliff! 

The local homicide detective thinks it was suicide and won't listen to Maria's extensive list of possible suspects for foul play or the fact that the victim was known for getting into fights that went beyond mere words. Not even Maria's boyfriend, lawyer-turned-farmer Merle Curtis, can convince the detective otherwise. 

Now it's up to Maria to unearth a secret in the pumpkin patch before the killer buries the truth—and possibly Maria along with it—forever.

Deadly Thanksgiving Sampler (A Danger Cove Quilting Mystery)    
Danger Cove Mysteries book #21

 

Quilt appraiser Keely Fairchild just wants to have a quiet little Thanksgiving dinner at home with her boyfriend, but as the guest list grows, so do the distractions from meal preparations. First she gets dragged into investigating the theft of miniature quilts that were supposed to be featured in the guild's entry in the Danger Cove Thanksgiving parade, and then she stumbles onto a bigger mystery: who killed a local quilter and what did her death have to do with a sampler quilt she'd made to depict her life's story? 

Keely struggles to figure out which elements of the quilt are clues and which are red herrings, and uncovers that the dead quilter and her mechanic husband may not have been as innocent as they seemed. Did the husband kill his quilting wife, or could it have had something to do with a stalker, an angry customer, or even a best friend who might actually be a frenemy?

If Keely can't figure it out, her life—and death—may end up depicted in her own deadly Thanksgiving sampler.

Two Sleuths Are Better Than One (A Danger Cove Crossover Mystery)  

Danger Cove Mysteries book #23

 

The Danger Cove Lighthouse Farmers' Market is holding a salsa contest to celebrate the tomato harvest, and market manager, Maria Dolores is thrilled by the large number of entries. But when the judge, a local sports coach, goes missing, Maria realizes she isn't the only person looking for him. He may have information on the recent murder of a quilt collector, so appraiser Keely Fairchild has some questions for him.

 

Unfortunately, when the two women finally find the coach it's too late—he's been killed too. Maria and Keely team up, convinced that the two murders are related, even if the police disagree with their theory. The problem is that while there are plenty of suspects for the first murder—pretty much everyone who ever met the quilt collector hated him—there's absolutely no one who had any reason to want the coach dead. And yet, not only has he been brutally murdered, but subsequent events also suggest the killer may have more victims in sight. This is definitely an instance where Two Sleuths Are Better Than One!

Faded to Death (A Danger Cove Quilting Mystery)  

a Danger Cove Mysteries novella

 

When a national quilt-show promoter brings her event to the small town of Danger Cove, and Keely Fairchild is invited to be its official appraiser, Keely sees it as an opportunity to expand her client base. Instead, she finds a quilt show in disarray. There's a poorly vetted vendor selling fake antiques, a vandal destroying a master quilt with bleach, and a killer stalking the show's judges!

 

With her friends in the Danger Cove Quilt Guild implicated in both the vandalism and the murder, Keely is determined to get some answers. Unfortunately, the investigation is likely to tarnish her reputation as an appraiser, since the suspects are all prominent members of the national quilt scene and are publicly badmouthing Keely for daring to question them. Worse, she uncovers evidence that the killer is planning for other people associated with the show to end up FADED TO DEATH like the first victim.

And Keely may be at the top of the list...

    A Killing in the Market (A Danger Cove Farmers' Market Mystery)  

    a Danger Cove novella

     

    Maria Dolores is the descendant and namesake of the first lighthouse keeper in the seaside town of Danger Cove—even though she's never visited the quaint cove in person. Maria's mother had always discouraged her from investigating her heritage, telling her to stay away from Danger Cove completely! But when Maria is invited to be the guest of honor at the opening of a new farmers' market on the lighthouse grounds, her curiosity leads her to accept.

    And then the farmers' market manager is murdered.

     

    Maybe her mother was right about Danger Cove after all. While Maria can't make up her mind about the town and its role in her family history, she's convinced the key to everything lies in uncovering who killed the market manager and why. With the help of handsome lawyer-turned-farmer, Merle Curtis, Maria sets out for some sleuthing.

    Can she figure out the truth before there's another KILLING IN THE MARKET?
