Material Witness: a Romantic Suspense Novel (Heroes of Providence Book 1)

by L.A. Mondello

**From NEW YORK TIMES and USA TODAY Bestselling Author Lisa Mondello**

Named one of KIRKUS REVIEWS Best Indie Books of 2012!

“Mondello’s latest, a pulse-pounding, pitch-perfect addition to the romantic suspense genre…Terrific escapist entertainment, as good as anything in Janet Evanovich’s oeuvre.” – Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Contemporary Romantic Suspense Novel featuring a sexy police officer and a crime novelist in jeopardy: 70,000 words

BOOK 1 of the Heroes of Providence series.

Who does she trust when the horror of one of her crime novels turns into a deadly reality?

Bestselling crime novelist, Cassie Alvarez, aka Cassie Lang, had murder on her mind when she walked into Rory’s Bar under dressed and under cover to research her latest crime novel. Researching the cool, blue-eyed and dashingly handsome man at the end of the bar stirred her senses more than she wanted to admit. But was this man of leather armor all he appeared to be?

Playing White Knight to an innocent wasn’t how Detective Jake Santos planned to spend his time under cover. But there was no way “CJ” was what she claimed to be and that nagging tightness in Jake’s chest told him he’d better take her home to safety and leave it at that. Then the barroom exploded with gunfire, leaving a trail of dead that includes a notorious Providence organized crime boss and an undercover FBI agent. When Cassie’s name is leaked to the media as the only witness to the grisly murders, Cassie insists she only trusts Jake to protect her.

The FBI wants their star witness happy and will do anything to make sure Cassie testifies. But someone wants vigilante justice and it is clear to Jake that the shooter isn’t the only person who wants Cassie dead. Not knowing who to trust, he vows to protect Cassie at all cost despite the fact that guarding the beautiful novelist is a serious distraction.

THE GIRL ON THE YACHT (Ryan-Hunter Series Book 1)

by Thomas Donahue

THE GIRL ON THE YACHT

When Criminology Professor Marin Ryan docks her new boat in the Blue Water Marina, she catches sight of cyber-security guru John Hunter on his yacht in the next slip over. It had been a long time since she had last seen her college lover, but her feelings are still there.

The Blue Water Marina proves to be a haven for other interesting characters, brought together by their mutual love of the sea and the boaters’ lifestyle. Like old friends, they seem to make themselves at home with the reader, snuggle up on the sofa, and move in for the evening.
A few slips down is the lovable movie star Raphael Montoya with his old fishing boat that reminds him of his humbler beginnings. A young plastic surgeon, Mitch Taylor, docked across from Marin, has a secret life of his own and disappears regularly. And, let’s not forget Bailey, the beagle.

The next morning, Marin finds the body of a woman in the water and discovers that the psychologist was a beloved member of E-Dock. Homicide Investigator Cameron West is assigned the case with her powerhouse team. Marin, the former FBI agent, and John, the computer expert, are drawn into the case.

The victim’s covert life puts the investigation at risk when they are denied access to information. With great stealth, John’s hacking uncovers the thread that breaks the case open in an entirely different direction–one that puts Marin, John, and Cameron in peril–they now know too much.

The Mystery of the Sycamore

by Carolyn Wells

As the character of a woman may be accurately deduced from her handkerchief, so a man’s mental status is evident from the way he opens his mail.
Curtis Keefe, engaged in this daily performance, slit the envelopes neatly and laid the letters down in three piles. These divisions represented matters known to be of no great interest; matters known to be important; and, third, letters with contents as yet unknown and therefore of problematical value.
The first two piles were, as usual, dispatched quickly, and the real attention of the secretary centred with pleasant anticipation on the third lot.
“Gee whiz, Genevieve!”
As no further pearls of wisdom fell from the lips of the engrossed reader of letters, the stenographer gave him a round-eyed glance and then continued her work.
Curtis Keefe was, of course, called Curt by his intimates, and while it may be the obvious nickname was brought about by his short and concise manner of speech, it is more probable that the abbreviation was largely responsible for his habit of curtness.
Anyway, Keefe had long cultivated a crisp, abrupt style of conversation. That is, until he fell in with Samuel Appleby. That worthy ex-governor, while in the act of engaging Keefe to be his confidential secretary, observed: “They call you Curt, do they? Well, see to it that it is short for courtesy.”
This was only one of several equally sound bits of advice from the same source, and as Keefe had an eye single to the glory of self-advancement, he kept all these things and pondered them in his heart.
The result was that ten years of association with Lawyer Appleby had greatly improved the young man’s manner, and though still brief of speech, his curtness had lost its unpleasantly sharp edge and his courtesy had developed into a dignified urbanity, so that though still Curt Keefe, it was in name only…
