However when an anonymous tip leads the police to question if Gianna's altercation with Hilary was tense enough to lead to murder, she's suddenly right in the thick of it!

Jamie Bond Mysteries
Jamie Bond Mysteries book #1
Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And her life is about to be shaken and stirred in a cocktail of sex, lies, scandal, and one very dead body.
Jamie Bond is a former cover model who switches gears to take over the family business: The Bond Agency, a high-powered P.I. firm located in Los Angeles that specializes in domestic espionage—catching cheating husbands. Jamie's assembled a team of other disenchanted former models to help her take names and kick derrieres among L.A.'s wealthiest philandering husbands. Her current client: Mrs. Veronica Waterston, the young, distraught wife of superior court judge, Thomas Waterston, known for his tough sentencing, right-wing leanings, and his fondness for blondes with double D's. Easy target. But Jamie's simple case takes an unexpected turn for the worse when the not-so-good judge winds up on the ten o'clock news with a bullet through his head. It's clear that someone has set Jamie up, and suddenly she's on the run, under fire, and in serious jeopardy of losing it all. With a hot A.D.A. on her trail, a killer on the loose, and her life on the line, Jamie must prove once and for all that nobody messes with a Bond.
Jamie Bond Mysteries book #2

Catching cheating husbands became Jamie Bond's life when her father was shot and wounded on the job, forcing Jamie to take over the family business: The Bond Agency. But three years later, the P.I. is shocked when the gun that wounded her father surfaces during a high-profile murder trial. Is this the connection Jamie's been waiting for to finally nail her father's shooter? But, oddly enough, Derek Bond doesn't seem interested. In fact, if Jamie didn't know better she'd say he's even trying to stop her from looking into it. Along with her team of bombshell investigators, Jamie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a cold case that's heating up the media, dodging old grudges and new enemies, while questioning the motives of those closest to her. If she can live with the truth, the secrets Jamie uncovers may bring down more than a marriage this time.
Jamie Bond Mysteries book #3
Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And her luck may have just run out...
P.I. Jamie Bond knows there's corruption in the Los Angeles County D.A.'s office. What she doesn't know is how far it runs and if her on-again, off-again love interest, A.D.A. Aiden Prince, is involved. Is he aware of the danger lurking in his halls of justice? Is he dating his exotic beauty of a co-chair? And why are drug dealers making middle of the night calls to the D.A.? Jamie is determined to find out. But between one case of an "open marriage" wife who fears her husband is secretly monogamous, an Elvis obsessed musician crushing on her employee, and an over-sexed baby-boomer father, Jamie has her hands full. Not to mention one hot photographer, Danny Flynn, who seems determined to take their relationship from "best friend" to "best night of her life." The boundaries between personal and professional blur in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, where no one can be trusted...and not everyone will make it out alive.
Jamie Bond Mysteries book #4
Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And danger follows her everywhere...
As a private investigator, Jamie Bond thought she had seen every sort of cheating-spouse case imaginable. That is until she's hired by a wife who's afraid her husband is cheating...on his diet. Rodger Claremont lost mega-pounds eating sandwiches from the Hoagies chain and subsequently became their celebrity spokesman. A position his wife fears he'll quickly lose if the pounds come back on. But what starts as a simple case of following a potentially unfaithful (to his diet) husband, turns deadly when Jamie finds Rodger murdered in his own home. Was the wife afraid of losing her sandwich fortune? Was it a competing fast-food chain out for revenge? Or did Rodger's friendship with a shady rapper named Heavy Cash have anything to do with it? Jamie vows to get to the bottom of it, even if it means stepping on the toes of the investigating assistant district attorney, Aiden Prince—a man Jamie could easily find herself falling for despite her budding attraction to her best friend, photographer Danny Flynn. Caught between two men, Jamie finds herself road-tripping to Vegas, babysitting a pair of Senior Sleuths, searching for a missing ex-boyfriend, and tracking down a cold-blooded killer...who threatens to strike again!

When Charley Alexander signs herself, and gal-pal Elaine, up for a cooking class with renowned Chef Machado, she expects a little fun, food, and wine among friends.

The poisoner has to be someone at the class, and Charley is determined to find out who. With the help of their private investigator friends at the Bond Agency, Charley and Elaine dig through an eclectic list of suspects, ticking them off one by one. But the closer they get to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes. And if they aren't careful, this may be their last meal!
Jamie Bond Mysteries book #5
Private investigator, Jamie Bond is used to danger—it's the name of her game. But when one of her past informants, an exotic dancer named Apple, goes missing, Jamie drops everything to find her. At first, Jamie suspects this may be a case of a weekend fling after a wild party at a Hollywood mogul's home. But it turns into something much more sinister when the movie mogul's daughter also appears to be kidnapped and a five million dollar ransom demand is made! Are the two missing women related? Which one of the movie mogul's angry associates is behind it? And can Jamie find Apple... before it's too late?
With the clock ticking, Jamie rallies her crew of Bond Girls to sort through a slew of suspects including a cagey caterer, a film producer with an axe to grind, and the movie mogul's former best friend turned worst enemy. To complicate matters, at the kidnapper's demand of "no law enforcement or she dies," Jamie can't breathe a word of her investigation to her on-again off-again love interest, ADA Aiden Prince—just when things are heating up between them, despite Jamie's complicated feelings for her best friend, Danny Flynn. Torn between two men, racing against time, and tracking a cold-blooded killer, Jaime has the case of her life on her hands—complete with more twist and turns than an LA freeway! The only question is, can she solve it in time... or will it be Apple's life on the line?
