The Quiche and the Dead

The Quiche and the Dead
A Pie Town Mystery Book 1
by Kirsten Weiss
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Is Val’s breakfast pie the quiche of death?

Owning her own business seemed like pie in the sky to Valentine Harris when

she moved to the coastal California town of San Nicholas, expecting

to start a new life with her fiancé. Five months—and a broken

engagement—later, at least her dream of opening a pie shop has

become a reality. But when one of her regulars keels over at the

counter while eating a quiche, Val feels like she’s living a nightmare.

After the police determine the customer was poisoned, business at Pie Town

drops faster than a fallen crust. Convinced they’re both suspects,

Val’s flaky, seventy-something pie crust maker Charlene drags her

boss into some amateur sleuthing. At first Val dismisses Charlene’s

half-baked hypotheses, but before long the ladies uncover some shady

dealings hidden in fog-bound San Nicholas. Now Val must expose the

truth—before a crummy killer tries to shut her pie hole.

Bleeding Tarts
A Pie Town Mystery Book 2
Val’s new pies are foolproof—but not bulletproof.

Old West ghost towns are as American as apple pie. So what better place

to sponsor a pie-eating contest than the Bar X, a fake ghost town

available for exclusive private events on the edge of Silicon Valley.

Valentine Harris is providing the pies, hoping to boost business for

her struggling Pie Town shop and become a regular supplier for the Bar X.

But no sooner does she arrive in town than a stray bullet explodes the

cherry pie in her hands. And the delicious dessert is not the only

victim. Val finds the Bar X bartender shot dead in an alley. Egged on

by her flaky friend and pie crust specialist, Charlene, Val aims to

draw out the shooter. But solving a real murder in a fake ghost town

won’t be easy as pie. And if Val doesn’t watch her back, her pies

won’t be the only thing filled full of lead . . .

Kirsten Weiss worked overseas for nearly fourteen years, in the fringes of

the former USSR and in South-east Asia. Her experiences abroad

sparked an interest in the effects of mysticism and mythology, and

how both are woven into our daily lives.

Now based in San Mateo, CA, she writes genre-blending steampunk suspense,

urban fantasy, and mystery, blending her experiences and imagination

to create a vivid world of magic and mayhem.

Kirsten has never met a dessert she didn’t like, and her guilty pleasures

are watching Ghost Whisperer re-runs and drinking red wine.

Two brothers. Two best friends. One robbery gone wrong.

With a court date looming, a near-fatal car accident, and a house invasion, the four surviving witnesses to an armed robbery know they are targets. In a desperate attempt to stay safe, they take matters into their own hands and go off the grid a week before the trial.

Danny St. John was stuck in a dark place of guilt and regret after a personal tragedy. On the run from violent criminals, he is forced to spend time with the one woman who makes him feel too much. Victoria Lopez needs to protect her heart, but she also misses the guy Danny used to be and thinks she might be able to bring him back. Now, evading gunmen together in Sequoia National Forest, Vic will risk everything to keep Danny safe.

Eric St. John isn’t a big fan of his sister-in-law-to-be, Zoe Turner. Sure, she’s beautiful, but also bossy and brash. When Eric and Zoe are forced to rely on each other for survival, he sees a side to Zoe he never anticipated, a side he definitely likes. But as the two grow closer, so do the men hunting them down.

Time nearly runs out as each couple must not only brave the perils of the wilderness and their growing feelings for each other, but also outwit their pursuers in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

Excerpt

He’d intentionally traveled away from the stream, so it took time to cut back for water, but if the strategy kept them safe then it was worth the extra time it cost. “I hear it,” Danny said of the rushing water. “Should be right through those trees there.”

He plowed ahead, concentrated on the idea of quenching his thirst and refilling and purifying the water bottles.

“Danny.” Vic’s voice didn’t sound her usual confident self. In fact, she sounded freaked out and—

The distinct rattle stopped him in his tracks and his breath rushed out of his lungs in a single whoosh as he turned and saw the snake. If the brown and gray scales hadn’t given it away, certainly the sound did. Somehow a giant rattlesnake planted itself between them on the narrow path. It slowly reared its head back while its tail rattled a warning. Vic’s eyes widened in paralyzing fear.

“Danny,” she whispered with both plea and panic.

“Stay still. It’s okay.” Frantically, he looked for a stick. Something to whisk the slithery beast far away, but nothing but pebbles and leaves surrounded him. The fucking thing slid closer to Vic, its tongue slithering out, tail rattling and head up ready to strike.

Danny did the only thing he could do. He kicked dirt behind the thing to get its attention. It spun and struck before he even blinked. Shit! He jumped back, felt the contact at his ankle. The fabric tugged as its fangs stuck on his jeans. “Shit! Shit!” Danny tried to shake the beast off and the reptile waved in the air like thick rope.

Soul Deep

Title: Soul Deep
Series: A Triton Security Novel
Author: Ashley Lyn
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 20, 2018

 

What was I thinking, falling in love at nineteen? 

 

I was thinking with my vagina, that’s what I was doing.
Physically speaking, he’s every good girl’s dream—All-American, blond hair, blue eyed, Marine, and business owner.
Strip him of his finery, the friendly smile, and the manners, he’s every bad girl’s walking orgasm.
He’s mine.
I wanted him ten years ago—I needed him.
A soul can only go so long without it’s mate.
This is rich, coming from the girl who can’t go ten seconds without making a comment about poop shoots, cum dumpsters (my ex-wife), inappropriately dancing, making lewd jokes, yet tries to give you a flowery description about our love story…
What? You thought you’d get the whole story here?
Naw, you have to read the book to find out about our epic love story—the trials, the intrigue, the sex (which is hot BTW) and my wife’s completely whacked sense of humor.
“Hey!” my wife yells.
“What? Fuck, don’t scare me like that. This is my portion of the blurb.”
“Fiancée! You haven’t gotten my sexy ass down the aisle yet, big boy.”

Ashley Lyn lives in Colorado with her amazing hubby that she met on match.com. She has two beautiful daughters, a crazy Boxer named Bailey, a Fat Cat named Mojo, and a sweet as apple pie calico cat named Katy.

 

She is a passionate reader who loves to read any and all genres. A good book, a cozy blanket and piping hot cup of coffee is her idea of a good time.
She loves to write quirky, funny, sexy, and eccentric characters who have zero problems flying their crazy flags.

Synopsis

Archer has always wanted what he can’t have—Quinn Dawson. Since the moment he saw her, he’s been denying his feelings for her, ignoring the void in his heart he knows only she can fill.
Everything about them was wrong, the kind of wrong that felt so right. But none of it mattered. Not the terrible timing. And definitely not the mess it would create if Archer made a move on his best friend’s baby sister.
It was supposed to be one night, but one night is all it takes to make everything more complicated, and they only have nine short months to sort it all out.
No, none of it mattered. Until it did.
**Cheat Codes is book one in The Dawson Family Series.**
