Whiskey Rebellion (Addison Holmes Book 1) (affiliate link)
Addison Holmes is a diamond in the rough, though she’s feeling more like a big lump of coal. Teaching history in Whiskey Bayou, Georgia isn’t exactly the most exciting job. Until she finds her principal dead in the parking lot of the seedy gentleman’s club.
When Addison finds herself out of a job, she turns to her best friend, Kate, who owns the McClean Detective Agency. Addison is a natural at the job. Living in a small town has given her all the skills she needs to spy on other people and pass silent judgment. Sometimes being nosy has its advantages.
When her principal’s murder reveals more Whiskey Bayou secrets than people are comfortable with, the suspect list grows longer than Addison’s arm. Fortunately, the detective in charge seems more than capable of finding the killer and driving her crazy at the same time.
Snips and Snails Mystery Cafe Book I-III BOXSET (affiliate link)
One day is all it takes for Juli to burn down the pizza parlor, lose her job, and walk in on her hubby…and the younger cutie next door.
The childish invite in the mail might just be her saving grace, or is something more sinister in store?
Because the town of Veil Falls and its inhabitants are far from ordinary. And moving there challenges every notion she’s ever had about what’s real. Add in a strange inheritance, an overbearing ghost, and a snarky recipe grimoire, and maybe even misfits like her deserve a second chance to get things right.
But first, as the newly appointed fledgling soup witch to Snips and Snails Café, she’ll need to get cooking, embrace her inner witchiness, and solve her uncle’s murder before she runs out of time and the killer strikes twice.

There’s a New Witch in Town (Witches of Holiday Hills Book 1) (affiliate link)
I have the perfect life. I recently rented the most adorable little apartment on top of my favorite bookstore/coffee shop on Main Street in Holiday Hills, the charmingest of charming small southern towns. I spend my days ghostwriting a cozy mystery series for a well-known author, and maybe just a minute or two crushing on the town’s police chief. But of course, I’d never let that cat out of the bag. I’m still reeling from my recent divorce, and no matter what my bestie says, I’m so not ready for anything in the romance department.
Speaking of cats, my little Burmese, Cooper, follows me around like he’s my guard dog. Thankfully, Holiday Hills is animal friendly. Everyone’s got a cat or dog, and that crazy old woman on the back end of town had the funniest talking parrot.
First Login (Chronicle Book 1) (affiliate link)
Corbin is an adventurer, he just hasn’t realized it. He was born in the wrong age, an era where there are no great adventures left in the world. With the advent of fully immersive virtual reality, however, that’s all going to change.
The revolutionary new game—Chronicle—makes much bolder claims than the competition. It offers a perfect simulation in a new world with quests, magic, monsters, and gods—but Chronicle’s biggest draw is something irresistible: while players are logged in, they have extra time to live.
In Corbin’s world, he may be average; he may work hard for no recognition; he may never catch a break and he may seem trapped, but a new world brings new opportunities, and extra time presents an extra chance. Perhaps he’ll find that he’s not so average after all.
Love Your Moves: A Billionaire Valentine’s Romantic Comedy (affiliate link)
From executive assistant for a billionaire to a candy dancer.
Those are just the breaks, right? Wrong.
Not when the sexy-as-sin boss that fired you decides he’s a little more than interested after he’s already taken your job.
If he thinks for one minute he’s getting into these candy panties, he’s wrong.
But I’ll give him a run for his money. This girl’s going down with a fight.
The drunk video that was made with me calling him out for being the villain he is went viral. I’m both impressed and appalled.
He’s far too smooth for his own good, and way too hot for mine.
All is fair in love and war until one night we both lay down our weapons and concede.
For one night. Besides, one night of passion has never hurt anyone, right?
From enemy to lover.
Sex, Murder and a Double Latte (A Sophie Katz Mystery Book 1) (affiliate link)
When a mystery writer cries bloody murder, everyone blames her overactive imagination…
Thriller scribe Sophie Katz is as hard-boiled as a woman who drinks Grande Caramel Brownie Frappuccinos can be. So Sophie knows it’s not paranoia or post-divorce, living-alone-again jitters, when she becomes convinced that a crazed reader is sneaking into her apartment to reenact scenes from her books. The police, however, can’t tell a good plot from an unmarked grave.
When a filmmaker friend is brutally murdered in the manner of a death scene in one of his movies, Sophie becomes convinced that a copycat killer is on the loose —and that she’s the next target. If she doesn’t solve the mystery, her own bestseller will spell out her doom. Cursing her grisly imagination (why, oh, why did she have to pick the ax?), Sophie engages in some real-life gumshoe tactics. The man who swoops in to save her in dark alleys is mysterious new love interest Anatoly Darinsky. Of course, if this were fiction, Anatoly would be her prime suspect.…
