Curvy Canary

Rosaria Trout Mystery #1

 AVAILABLE NOW at Amazon

Rosaria Trout is on the run—from a bucketload of heartache and fury, and toward a clean slate where her new name is as anonymous as her short haircut.

She’d planned not to stop for breath until she hit the Pacific Ocean, but a small town in the Columbia River Gorge had other ideas. Namely, a summer festival complete with a rinky-dink parade that clogged up Main Street and a ‘For Rent’ sign in the window of a dilapidated historical house.

She did, after all, need to start over in a place that wouldn’t strangle her pocketbook.

What she hadn’t counted on was the untimely demise of the curvaceous redhead who’s been tailing her.

They were both out of their element, and only one of them has survived—so far.

Imogene Museum Mystery #8

Sure, Sockeye County is rural—even scenically desolate in places. Which means buried crimes have the potential to go undiscovered for long periods of time.

Then they come to light. They always come to light.

Sheriff Marge is here to make sure of that.

But when an intriguing history mystery is paired with current disappearances of a similar nature, Sheriff Marge taps all her community resources, including the research talents of Meredith Sills, curator of the eclectic Imogene Museum, to nail the perpetrators.

Because when embezzlement turns to death—and people get desperate—there’s no time to be lost.

Tin Can Mystery #10

Gone. Just gone.

Roxy Sperry, the stalwart manager of Marten’s Marina is just plain gone.

Yeah, that Roxy—the chain-smoking dry wit who normally can’t be rousted more than twenty feet from the bench where she holds court just outside the marina office. The woman who knows everybody and everything. The woman whose life motto is grit and pragmatism.

She’s left behind one starting-to-panic teen granddaughter and a community of bewildered tenants.

But Eva Malloy and her detective husband, Vaughn, won’t give up the pursuit—not for one nanosecond.

Even though it’d sure help if they knew what they were looking for. Information? Hidden secrets? The truth?

What truth? Or worse yet, which body?

Rosaria Trout Mystery #2

Do small-town residents commit crimes? You bet they do!

On a grand scale? Even better!

If they can get away with it.

But Rosie Trout hasn’t dealt with corruption on the national stage just to miss it when it happens at the community garden club. There might be some fleecing going on, but no one’s going to pull the wool over her eyes.

Not while she has her wits about her. And not while she can rope Sergeant Flip Baylar into going undercover before someone else gets conked on the back of the head—or worse.
