Feliz Navidead
by Ann Myers
on Tour November 20 – December 31, 2016

Synopsis:

Holly, jolly, and downright deadly—the third Santa Fe Café mystery unwraps surprises both naughty and nice… It’s the most picturesque time of the year in Santa Fe, and Chef Rita Lafitte of Tres Amigas Café hopes the twinkling lights and tasty holiday treats will charm her visiting mom. Rita is also planning fun activities, such as watching her teenage daughter, Celia, perform in an outdoor Christmas play.

What she doesn’t plan for is murder.

Rita discovers a dead actor during the premier performance but vows to keep clear of the case. Sleuthing would upset her mom. Besides, there’s already a prime suspect, caught red-handed in his bloodied Santa suit. However, when the accused Santa’s wife begs for assistance—and points out that Celia and other performers could be in danger—Rita can’t say no. With the help of her elderly boss, Flori, and her coterie of rogue knitters, Rita strives to salvage her mother’s vacation, unmask a murderer, and stop this festive season from turning even more fatal.

Dark Money by Larry Thompson
A Jack Bryant Thriller

Jackson Bryant, the millionaire plaintiff lawyer who turned to pro bono work in Dead Peasants, is caught up in the collision of money and politics when he receives a call from his old army buddy Walt Frazier. Walt needs his assistance in evaluating security for Texas Governor Rob Lardner at a Halloween costume fundraiser thrown by one of the nation’s richest Republican billionaires at his mansion in Fort Worth.

Miriam Van Zandt is the best marksman among The Alamo Defenders, an anti-government militia group in West Texas. She attends the fundraiser dressed as a cat burglar–wounds the governor and murders the host’s brother, another Republican billionaire. She is shot in the leg but manages to escape.

Jack is appointed special prosecutor and must call on the Texas DPS SWAT team to track Van Zandt and attack The Alamo Defenders’ compound in a lonely part of West Texas. Van Zandt’s father, founder of the Defenders, is killed in the attack and Miriam is left in a coma. The authorities declare victory and close the case-but Jack …

What She Knew by Gilly Macmillan
on Tour December 2015

Synopsis:

In her enthralling debut, Gilly Macmillan explores a mother’s search for her missing son, weaving a taut psychological thriller as gripping and skillful as The Girl on the Train and The Guilty One.

In a heartbeat, everything changes…

Rachel Jenner is walking in a Bristol park with her eight-year-old son, Ben, when he asks if he can run ahead. It’s an ordinary request on an ordinary Sunday afternoon, and Rachel has no reason to worry—until Ben vanishes.

Police are called, search parties go out, and Rachel, already insecure after her recent divorce, feels herself coming undone. As hours and then days pass without a sign of Ben, everyone who knew him is called into question, from Rachel’s newly married ex-husband to her mother-of-the-year sister. Inevitably, media attention focuses on Rachel too, and the public’s attitude toward her begins to shift from sympathy to suspicion.

As she desperately pieces together the threadbare clues, Rachel realizes that nothing is quite as she imagined it to be, not even her own judgment. And the greatest dangers may …

The Enemy Inside by Steve Martini – Review

The Enemy Inside by Steve Martini – Review

The Enemy Inside by Steve Martini is the 13th book in the Paul Madriani series. Once again, I was swept up in the story from page one. The author does a wonderful job of setting up a story that, right away, makes you want to know what is going to happen. This is the 3rd book I’ve read in this series, and the first that didn’t involve Paul and the others chasing (and trying not to get killed by) Liquida. Though the previous two books I read were 5 star reads for me, I enjoyed this one even a bit more than those.

In The Enemy Inside by Steve Martini, Paul and Harry are defending a young man who is a friend of Paul’s daughter. They believe he is innocent and is being set up for the death of an important political mover. I found the story well-written and fascinating. I was up late at night turning page after page. Martini weaves an intriguing tale laced with spies, murder for hire, political greediness and legal issues. The mystery …

Trader of Secrets by Steve Martini – Review

Trader of Secrets by Steve Martini – Review

Trader of Secrets by Steve Martini is the 12th book in the action-packed series featuring attorney Paul Madriani. This is a continuation of the previous book, The Rule of Nine, and picks up right where that book left off. See my review of The Rule of Nine here. The cliffhanger ending of The Rule of Nine made me glad I had Trader of Secrets to dive into.

I have only read The Rule of Nine and Trader of Secrets in the Paul Madriani series. I have seen several reviews that do not like this story line at all. I am thoroughly enjoying Madriani’s world travels as he tries to track down the elusive killer, Liquida and doing what he can to save the world from unknown weapons and warfare. I admit I am not a big fan of Joselyn’s character. Some of her dialogue comes across as insensitive and downright mean at times. Sarah doesn’t seem as intelligent as she is supposed to be. I much prefer Paul and Harry and their interactions.

In this installment of the Paul …
