USA TODAY Bestselling author and seven time Amazon All Star author Dianne Harman presents a cozy murder mystery with an endangered species at its heart.
When the Lotis Blue butterfly, an endangered species, is sighted in a forest where logging operations are being conducted, it sets off a chain reaction in the small town of Red Cedar, California. David Sanders, a Forest Service employee and the step-brother of the popular owner of Gertie’s Diner, is found murdered after he entered the forest to look for the blue butterfly. But who killed him?
There are plenty of suspects, but what’s the motive? Was it the Jefferson Lumber Company employee who developed cancer from the improper use of formaldehyde at the company’s plywood plant? Or George Myers, the jealous husband of Ruby, David’s former lover, who has anger issues? Ruby could also be considered a suspect. And what about the Environmental Studies teaching assistant? Or the Forest Service employee who’s fanatic about saving the environment. Or even Gertie?
Join Liz Lucas and her boxer guard dog, Winston, as she helps the incompetent, bumbling chief of police search for the murderer before he makes a mistake and arrests her friend Gertie. As always, there are dogs, good food and recipes.
A great mystery unsolved.
An ancient game forgotten.
A noir detective hard-boiled.
Industry Giant, Tornado Tech, released the first online video game over thirty years ago and the black and white edutainment relic has been collecting dust ever since.
But hidden within the crude polygons and musty word puzzles of Hard-Boiled City is one of the greatest mysteries in all of gaming history: Carmella Sanfrancisco. The iconic, orange-wearing master criminal is thought to be a myth by everyone except for one person, detective Classen Fortinbras. He knows in his soul that she exists.
As the final shutdown of the Hard-Boiled server approaches, an important question remains unanswered: Where in Hard-Boiled City is Carmella Sanfrancisco? More important to Classen is his own personal question: “Who is Carmella Sanfrancisco?”
Warning: Contains… Absolutely no sexual situations or banging?
While part of a series, this novelette can be read as a standalone story!
Detective Reggie Harper is a man constantly flirting with the end of his rope. From his youth in upstate New York, through his early adult life and into his golden years, there has been no shortage of hard lessons both learned and taught. No shortage of heartache and pain.
However, through it all, he has had anchors that have helped him keep his rage at bay. Friends and family who provided him with love, hope, joy, and understanding. Loved ones who acted as beacons to guide him through his own inner darkness.
Not all of Reggie Harper’s stories deal with a case. Not all of his stories have a perp. Not all of his stories end with someone in a cage.
A man can’t always be a bull in a China shop, after all.

By now you’re probably aware that the Alex Troutt thrillers, Ivy Nash thrillers, and the soon-to-be-released Ozzie Novak thrillers are all under the same Redemption Thriller Series umbrella. Why? Because, ultimately, they all connect — Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. How? That’s part of the mystery that I’m slowly unveiling throughout the Redemption Thriller Series.
Through each sub-series, characters from different books appear in the other novels. If it adds suspense, intrigue, or even a good laugh, I’ve included a cross-over character — it’s a lot more fun that way. Plus — and here’s the real kicker — I’ll write a final six novels that brings all of the major characters together — Alex, Ivy, Ozzie. It will be explosive and gut-wrenching…in a way that will leave you breathless. At least that’s my hope.
Starting with IN The End (Nov. 10 release), I’ll be launching a new book every 2-4 weeks. IN The End will segue into the Ozzie Novak Thrillers. ON Edge (book 1), is due out on November 28. From there, it will be non-stop suspense until all six Ozzie books are released. And my editor tells me that Ozzie Novak is my best character yet.:) So, I hope you’re ready for some thrilling binge-reading.

From USA TODAY bestselling author and seven time Amazon All Star author comes another page-turning murder mystery.
Kat Denham, a popular author of steamy romance novels, has decided to write a book in a different genre. She has a friend who’s a doctor of acupuncture, has just lost over one hundred pounds, is getting married in mid-life for the first time to a doctor, and seems like the perfect role model for the protagonist in Kat’s soon-to-be-written book.

Suddenly Kat is involved in a murder mystery she has to solve to save her reputation and that of her friend, Mitzi.
Who was the murderer? Was it Mitzi, Kat’s acupuncturist? Or was it a doctor from the clinic who desperately wants Mitzi discredited, so he’ll be named the Assistant Dean of Acupuncture? Then there’s Sandy’s philandering husband, Matt, and Mitzi’s fiancee’s ex-girlfriend. Or was it the clinic’s receptionist, Rochelle? Will the sting Kat devises to help catch the murderer work?
