Coping with being attacked and left for dead isn’t easy, but Samantha Moon is grateful that she survived―until she suspects she didn’t.
Vanishing from mirrors is only the first of a series of bizarre events that defies explanation, even to her trained investigative mind. A severe allergy to the sun, alertness at night, inability to eat food that isn’t blood, and worst of all: she can’t remember the last time she needed the bathroom. Of course, it’s not all bad. Years have fallen off her face, her hair is perfect, her senses are honed, and (assuming she hasn’t gone crazy) she can even see in the dark.
It’s all too much to process, so she does the only thing that makes any sense: tries to go back to work.
A huge hat, shades, and half a bottle of high-test sunscreen later, she’s back out inspecting properties with her partner Chad. Her first day, she suspects a HUD recipient of having undeclared income. Determined to cling to the career she worked so hard for, Sam traces the money back to small-time arms dealers selling big-time weapons. Everything seems to be routine until her sluggish reflexes get someone shot―and her husband suffers an emotional breakdown.
Worse, she faces a more insidious and dangerous enemy than an apocalyptic militia group with military hardware…
The small town of Deville, Washington holds a population of less than ten thousand people. In addition to its annual fall cider festival, it also boasts one of the lowest crime rates in the state. It’s an idyllic little town, where people escape the big city to enjoy nature. For Chase Grant, it was a fresh start, a new beginning. But when the family down the street disappears, Grant is forced to confront a past that he had thought he’d left behind.
In Bloody Lessons, it’s the winter of 1880, and the teachers of San Francisco are under attack: their salaries slashed and their competency and morals questioned in a series of poison pen letters.
Annie Fuller, the reluctant clairvoyant, has been called in to investigate by Nate Dawson, her lawyer beau, and the case becomes personal when they discover that Laura, Nate’s sister, may be one of the teachers targeted for attack.
In this installment in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, readers will find the same blend of a cozy mystery and romantic suspense, played out against the historical backdrop of late 19th century San Francisco, that they found in Maids of Misfortune and Uneasy Spirits.
If you are new to this series, you will still enjoy spending time with the lively residents of Annie Fuller’s boarding house and visiting San Francisco when Golden Gate Park was filled with horse-drawn carriages, politics were controlled by saloon-keepers, and kisses were stolen under gaslight.

Soon she’s in a battle of wills with ex-football player turned journalist Mike Paycik, who might see her as a handy rung on his career ladder or a romantic partner or both.

What Readers are Saying about The Girl from Her Mirror:
“I absolutely loved this book. It was fast-paced and almost impossible to put down. The main characters are appealing. This is the first book in a three book series. You could stop with just this book. It wraps up most of the plot lines. But if you’re like me, you are going to want to find out what happens to Kenzie. Give it a try. Bet you can’t read just one.
“There are very few authors that grab my attention and make me hate having to put the book down. Becki Willis is now one of those authors for me! The book was so well written and it grabs you from page one until the last page. I was thrilled when I found out that the characters would be continuing in a second and third sequel.
“Great book! By the end if the book you will feel like you know each character personally.”
“A thrill ride that will have you gripping the edge of your seat.”
“This is a must-read. The characters are amazing.”
