It’s here!
The Minton Sisters Return in
Letter from a Dead Man

Greetings, folks!  A passion for  the sharp wit, humor, and dark suspense of classic-era film and written mystery inspired my Jessica Minton Mystery series:  Bait and Switch (2015) and Letter from a Dead Man (available now!). The novels feature a sharp, witty, imaginative female lead who’s ripe for a little romance, even if it’s mixed with espionage, deception, or murder.

Jessica and Elizabeth Minton, along with Dusty, are back! Now they’re entangled by a business partner with a shadowed past, a predatory socialite with underworld connections, a cut-throat search for stolen jade, two suspicious detectives, an F.B.I. agent from Jessica’s past with an agenda of his own, and a deadly murder frame-up. It’s enough to make Dusty’s fur stand on end! For more on Letter from a Dead Man, click here.
