Hot Coffee, Iced Santa (A Roasted Love Cozy Mystery Book 2)

In a few days, Laila will be flying home to visit her family for Christmas. But she’s finally sitting down to a nice dinner with Daniel, the cute paramedic. But before they can get two bites in, a scream echoes from the kitchen. There’s a dead Santa in the freezer that the repairman just unlocked!

The owner of the restaurant is now the prime suspect, and probably guilty as far as Laila is concerned. But, he’s Daniel’s best friend, so, for Daniel’s sake, Laila sets out to prove the owner innocent. But she’s not sure that’s even possible, especially when he kisses her when Daniel leaves -yuck!

And besides all of that, she needs to find the perfect gift for Daniel. Ugh! Christmas is anything but peaceful as Laila faces some unsavory characters, bad cologne, a stinky tavern, and a large stack of cash in a dead man’s closet that would tempt anybody.

Before You Go (Impossible Love Series 1)

A hook-up with a hot stranger from the local bar–what could go wrong?

Yes, I know how it sounds, but trust me, I’ve thought it through. I’ve spent the entire summer thinking it through, and I’ve found the perfect place to begin–off the beaten path and, most importantly, far from campus.

He’s the one.

I know it as soon as I spot him–an intellectual type reading a book with wild hair, square jaw, and what looks to be very kissable lips. He’s what I’ve been waiting for. My summer of practice all comes down to this. A one-night-stand. And if I can go through with it, I can take control of my life and finally move beyond my past.

The Circular Staircase

This is the story of how a middle-aged spinster lost her mind, deserted her domestic gods in the city, took a furnished house for the summer out of town, and found herself involved in one of those mysterious crimes that keep our newspapers and detective agencies happy and prosperous. For twenty years I had been perfectly comfortable; for twenty years I had had the window-boxes filled in the spring, the carpets lifted, the awnings put up and the furniture covered with brown linen; for as many summers I had said good-bye to my friends, and, after watching their perspiring hegira, had settled down to a delicious quiet in town, where the mail comes three times a day, and the water supply does not depend on a tank on the roof. And then — the madness seized me.
