Yet the organization that shocked the world with their relentless brutality has a final act of terror to execute. An attack that will be beyond human imagination.

The Bakery (Stonebrooke Holidays Book 1)

Addie Jones was a woman with a plan. Or at least she had been until the manager she’d hired for her bakery embezzled all her funds and absconded to parts unknown. Now she’s facing ruin and her number one enemy, Math. With only a few short months left to turn her finances around, she needs to find a new slogan to live by. Her current catchphrase “Don’t make me math” simply won’t do.

Vaughn McAdams agreed to do a solid for his cousin and help her bestie recover from her recent financial losses. He hadn’t counted on Fate smacking him upside the head with a rolling pin, or the zany baker who now calls herself his boss. Her inability to balance a checkbook has him almost as frustrated as her insistence on keeping their relationship strictly professional.

A Dark and Bloody Ground: A True Story of Lust, Greed, and Murder in the Bluegrass State

Kentucky never deserved its Indian appellation “A Dark and Bloody Ground” more than when a small-town physician, seventy-seven-year-old Roscoe Acker, called in an emergency on a sweltering evening in August 1985. Acker’s own life hung in the balance, but it was already too late for his college-age daughter, Tammy, savagely stabbed eleven times and pinned by a kitchen knife to her bedroom floor. Three men had breached Dr. Acker’s alarm and security systems and made off with the fortune he had stashed away over his lifetime.

The killers—part of a three-man, two-woman gang of the sort not seen since the Barkers—stopped counting the moldy bills when they reached $1.9 million. The cash came in handy soon after when they were caught and needed to lure Kentucky’s most flamboyant lawyer, the celebrated and corrupt Lester Burns, into representing them.
