Truth or Die (Book Six)

Truth or Die (The Belinda & Bennett Mysteries, Book Six)

Spring is in the air, and Kyle has come home. With a surprise.

Belinda never thought she’d see the day that a murder investigation would be a welcome distraction. But when Kyle’s return from Australia isn’t the reunion she expected, trying to figure out why a young woman wound up dead in her family’s pool turns out to be a way to escape her woes.

Especially when the victim’s murder seems to be entwined with a secret from her past, and those who know it are keeping it close. As Belinda and Bennett aid Jonas in finding a murderer, Belinda’s issues with her brother escalate.

While they rely on evidence and good old-fashioned snooping to expose the killer, Belinda’s situation with her brother ends up revealing how she and Bennett truly feel about each other–and what the future may hold for them.

Misfortune (Book Five)


What do an old recluse, a new heiress, and an obsession with Egypt have in common? Portside, of course. And Belinda Kittridge.

In an attempt to help a woman who inherited a fortune from a total stranger, Belinda and Bennett get caught in the middle of a deadly struggle. The matter is complicated by a new detective who doesn’t play well with amateur sleuths. And Belinda’s visiting cousin wants in on the action–and danger.

Battling self-doubt, and fear that death threats will become realities, Belinda looks to her friends, and a couple frenemies, to dig to the bottom of a family full of secrets. It will take their combined efforts to unmask a killer–and a decades-old mystery.

Belinda continues to grow into her new role as a part-time amateur detective, swimming through suspects and broken connections, while Bennett starts to rebuild his life, and Jonas breaks free from work to pursue a potential new romance.

With the heat of summer upon them, the future is more unpredictable than ever.

Auf’d (Book Two)

Auf'd (The Belinda & Bennett Mysteries, Book Two)Lending a hand to a charity fashion show sounded like such fun. Now if only Belinda’s idea of a good time included a smothered designer and trouble with Bennett.

While Belinda balances opening a business and a house reno, haute couture Portside-style lands her in one hot mess of runway intrigue and man drama.

It seems not everyone at this show is what they claim to be – or even who.

    I Love this series but I signed up for the newsletter because it said I would get Two To Tango free which I didn’t!!!! I tried to redo it & it states I’m already Signed up. What a total disappointment & rip off!! I have to say it’s a terrible way to start a newsletter. I’ve NEVER had this problem with other authors and am very disappointed and disillusioned!!!
