The Book Cellar Mysteries

insidelookTheir lives are perfect… if only from the outside.

At first glance, the residents of Herald Springs lead charmed lives. But behind the dazzling smiles and inside the large brick homes, they all have their secrets. Most are harmless, but then again Annabeth King never did quite fit in.

This newest neighbor is harboring a special secret of her own, one that could prove deadly. Will the members of the “drink and gossip” club figure out what Annabeth’s working so hard to hide before disaster comes knocking?

With Storm’s signature bitter-sweetness and Hodge’s thrilling intensity, Walker Texas Wife offers a fast-paced, addictive romp that fans of Desperate Housewives and Pretty Little Liars will find themselves falling hard and fast for. This debut in the new Book Cellar Mystery series will leave you wondering: just how well do we know our neighbors after all?

Nobody in Herald Springs can believe that their small town served as the scene for a major criminal showdown. With the events of the annual gala behind them, they just want to get back to their normal lives, but the members of the local “drink and gossip club” know the drama is far from over.

Brooke’s got a stalker, Annabeth has a criminal mastermind bent on her destruction, and even Vi is being taken for a ride by someone she thought was her friend. If only they could turn to each other for help, things might not be so bad—but with the women at odds with one another and only Jesse in good graces with the rest of the group, that isn’t likely to happen any time soon.

Their world is going to hell in a hand basket, so why not throw a party to brighten everyone’s mood? With Ligia’s help, Brooke arranges a charity beauty pageant the town won’t soon forget, especially when the bad guys show up and attempt to finish what they started earlier that year…

Coming April 2017!

Everyone wants to know what happened to Jesse, and who will be next? The women swear they're done keeping secrets from one another, but that doesn't mean other residents of Herald Springs will play nice.

Brooke is homeless, Vi is unemployed, and Anna has some explaining to do when her boss shows up in town unannounced. This time Fin casts his net wide, hoping to bring down the “drink and gossip” club once and for all. Unfortunately for them, not everyone will get out alive.

Storm and Hodge are definitely picking up speed as they deliver the most dramatic and heart-wrenching installment of the Book Cellar Mystery series yet. You won't want to blink for fear of missing one of its many thrilling twists and turns.

The fourth Book Cellar Mystery planned for summer 2017.
