The Haunting of Hayley
2010
Romantic Cozy Mystery
 

A woman with no future, a man with a past and a house full of secrets.

 

Hayley Carmichael has lost everything … can her sanity be far behind?

 

She has no mother, no job, and no home, so Hayley follows her newly acquired fiancé, Brody, to his hometown of St. Augustine, Florida. Brody’s not there, but his family is.

 

There’s Drake, Brody’s sullen twin, identical to his brother minus a little hair; his unhappy wife Meredith, whose marriage is sinking fast; and Eleanor Northwood, Brody’s mother, an eccentric old woman with a big heart and an agenda to match, who invites Hayley to stay at her beautiful inn, Plenty O’ Peace.

 

But peace isn’t so plentiful when Hayley discovers the house may be haunted and Eleanor’s sexy step-nephew, Jordan, is getting under her skin.

 

The Good the Bad and the Hair
​2008
Romantic Comedy Mystery
 

Hannah Hailstone just found a sexy man in the back seat of her car—semi-conscious and bleeding, but at least he has a pulse. Her father, a James Bond wannabe with a penchant for gambling, has disappeared. And there’s a man in a pink Cadillac tailing her hippy artist mother. Hannah’s plans to re-read her Nancy Drew Mysteries—the vintage, hard cover collection—have changed. Now she’s got a real mystery on her hands.

 

Robbed, beaten and on the run from thugs, Cooper West is down on his luck. Somebody just tap-danced on his face and stole his precious motorcycle. Now he’s a drifter whose wings have been clipped, so he’s got a reason to stay in town a while. And he just found another one. Hannah’s funky hair and her talent for swan diving into hot water make a fascinating combination.

 

Someone is out to get Cooper, and Hannah’s a sucker for strays. But when his bad luck tangles with her bad hair, it jump-starts a bumpy ride through the tunnel of love.

Callie Shaw has come home to Deception Bay to stamp out some fires. Her cheating father just left town. Her starry-eyed sister is on the verge of marrying a virtual stranger, and there's something strange about the drop-dead gorgeous cemetery gardener Mitch Brooker—he doesn't  know a daisy from a doorknob.

But when a little harmless flirting with Callie, his prime suspect's sexy sister-in-law, evolves into a steamy romance, things get complicated, and Mitch discovers…

 

The truth is what's left over when you run out of lies
