If you are a stickler for police procedures or read a lot
of hard-boiled murder mysteries, this might not be the book for you!
Summer and Jerry’s romantic weekend takes a dark turn when they discover
the body of a young woman in the surf.
When the local police deny the crime and the newspaper prints nothing,
Jerry and Summer realize they are on their own. But they have no idea
how deep they will have to dig to find out the truth. The murder is
only a thread in a web of lies that extends to the furthest reaches
of political office.
Are Summer’s visions to be the only clues? Jerry doesn’t think so,
his focus on good old-fashioned detective work, but when he doubts
her psychic abilities the trust between them begins to crumble.
As the days pass, Jerry and Summer come to understand that not only
their relationship, but their very lives are in jeopardy.
A terrible school shooting has the entire sleepy town of Ames in an
uproar. Who would do such a thing, and why can’t the witnesses
remember any details about the shooter?
When Summer has a visit from a ghost she’s left wondering…could
someone long dead actually heft an assault rifle?
Along with the furor over the murders, Summer is falling for Jerry again,
despite his obvious deranged state of mind. Add to that the upcoming
wedding between Sam and Agnes, and include a smattering of ghosts and
possible psychopaths to the guest list, and you have a recipe for disaster.
Summer is in Scotland doing an errand for a ghost. But when she comes face
to face with her distant past her world turns upside down.
Finlay Ross McCloud, a ghost in the Ames graveyard, has sent her on this
fool’s errand, his facts confused. And when Summer discovers the
truth she’s already in over her head.
Will she succumb to the charms of the handsome highlander she can picture
running across the moors in a kilt, or will she pull herself away
before it’s too late?
Akumal is beautiful, but without Jerry, Summer’s hopes of sunbathing,
margaritas, and rolling around in bed together, are ruined.
But it’s the dead body in the cenote that clinches it. Jerry is working
on a case that he never mentioned, and Summer is left out– that is
until she decides to do a little sleuthing herself.
Even with the help from ghosts and a jaguar Summer is out of her depth.
And when her life is put in in danger it is up to Jerry to save her.
Will he make it in time?
I graduated with a BA in art and English from Sonoma State University
in California. I’ve been an avid reader since I first learned how and
a writer from my early teenage years on. I’ve had several art related
businesses, including greeting cards and more recently a silk
painting business. When I began to write in earnest I put aside the
art, concentrating only on the writing.
I’ve traveled a lot over the years, finding inspiration wherever I go.
Scotland holds a special place in my heart, hence the setting for
“The Moonstone”. I had to make a 4th trip there to do
research as I was putting the book together!
