Synopsis:
Casey doesn’t have much luck in the dating department, so when her girlfriends ditch their girls only weekend for a couple’s retreat, she's forced to take desperate measures.

Refusing to be the only single one, she does what any quick-thinking girl would do:

She lies.

It was almost too easy hiring a stranger to pretend to be her hot, rich, successful boyfriend. What she didn’t plan on was him being hot, successful, and way too much trouble for her liking.

Jim was in a slump in his everyday life. He was bored and needed something to spice up his life. Accepting a gig to play the perfect boy toy was not what he had in mind, but it was too good to turn down.

What he didn't plan for was the smokin’ little spitfire who hired him. It’s a con, a job, a fraud. But the more she's in his presence, the more he realizes she may be more than just a ruse.

Three days at a lake house.

Two strangers who cause a lot of mayhem.

One little lie.

Mystery/Thriller
Publish Date:

Publisher:
The Wild Harp & Company, Inc.

Synopsis:
A brutal murder.
A heinous secret
A deadly conspiracy.

The brutal murder of the little old lady next door puts FitzHugh Donovan on the case. A retired New York City Police Chief, he knows a cover-up when he sees one and his Irish Cop conscience can’t let that happen. 

Now, Fitz, his family and his quirky band of Bleecker Street Irregulars are ensnared in the bizarre secret the woman died to protect.

Is this a 75-year-old cold case turned hot again, or an unspeakable crime-in-progress that could alter the course of the world?

Characters you’ll care about, dark shocking secrets, and disturbing similarities to today’s political scene, will keep you turning pages to an ending you won’t see coming.


      

*Excerpt*
Chapter 3


Maeve Donovan snatched up the phone on the first ring. Her nerves had been ratcheting up unreasonably since her father left the house twenty minutes before. No need to be so on edge, she chided herself, but that was the problem with being semi-psychic—you often got hints of trouble in advance, but they were never explicit enough to know what the hell to do.
Her father’s voice was deep, serious. His “cop” voice, but husky with controlled emotion.
“She’s dead, sweetheart,” he said without preamble. “I’ve called the precinct, but didn’t want you alarmed when the black-and-whites roar up outside. The place has been ransacked. It’s a ruin of trashed books, papers, and all that fine old bric-a-brac she lived amidst. She was stabbed, tortured. It’s ugly.”
“I’ll be right there!”
“No, luv. It’s a crime scene now.  The Crime Scene Unit will be here any minute. I’ll get home as soon as I can, but that might not be for a while, considering I was probably the last one to see her alive, other than the bastard who did this. They’ll need my statement.” He took a breath. “And, Maeve, luv, do me a favor. Call Finn and tell her to take a cab home—tell her I’ll pay for it, since she worries about money. And lock the doors and windows until we find out what this is all about, will you, darlin’?”
“Okay,” she said, unconvinced. Now she knew why her hackles had been doing a jig. This was going to suck them all in, sure as God made little green apples. She didn’t know how exactly, but it would suck them all in.

*Excerpt*
“They’re sweet together,” Carol mused as she watched Lisa and Kevin. Joe popped up out of nowhere between Carol and Michelle. “Don’t go stirring the pot, Carol,” he said, shaking his head.
“I do not stir the pot, Joe.” She leaned back and placed her left hand on his cheek, then kissed the other. Michelle drew back. “Carol Shaw, you tried to set me up with no less than three people last year alone.” She placed a hand on Carol’s shoulder and walked back to her table. 
“Yes.” She wiped her hands on a towel and set it on the counter. “But I stopped,” she insisted. “As soon as you told me you weren’t interested.” 
“Yeah, right.” Carol would never stop matchmaking. It was just part of who she was. 
The door to the cafe opened and Hannah bounded in with a big smile, followed closely by a man and young boy. “Hey guys.” 
“Hey, Welcome back.” Carol walked over to greet them. 
“Thanks. You remember my older brother, Thomas.” She hugged the young boy at her side. “And my phew,David.” 
Joe stood next to the Christmas tree holding a red carafe. “Yes, of course. Thomas, it’s good to have you back.” 
“It’s good to be back,” Thomas said. Michelle couldn’t take her eyes off the tall, bald, and charming Thomas as he stood there in a nice pullover and winter coat next to his son. Joe was tall, but Thomas was an easy few inches taller than him. 
“We’ve missed the Kringle Kitchen and your incredible apple dumplings,” he said to Carol. 
“Why, thank you.” Then with that mischievous smile on her face, Carol grabbed Thomas by the arm, practically dragging him across the cafe. “Have you met Michelle?” 
Hannah looked confused, and Michelle could’ve died when Carol finally stopped right beside her chair. Michelle stood, trying to roll with the awkward moment. Carol’s at it again! 
“The famous Michelle?” Thomas nodded to his sister. “Hannah talks about you all the time, and somehow we haven’t met.” 
“Yeah, we’re always missing each other when you’re in town, I guess.” Michelle licked her lips. She hoped she didn’t look as flustered as she felt right this moment, especially with Carol gawking over the two of them. “Nice to meet you.” 
“Yes.” Thomas was quiet for a second too long, giving Carol another opening. 
“Well, come on. Take your coat off.” Carol tugged on his coat sleeve, then pulled out the chair next to Michelle. “Have a seat right over here next to Michelle.” She scurried behind Michelle. “And let’s bring this table over and get you two all cozy, too,” she said to Hannah and David. Hannah helped move the tables together. 
Carol rushed off and came back with a pot of coffee in a flash, warming up Michelle’s coffee first. “So, Thomas. Correct me if I’m wrong, but you and David spend Christmas here every...other year. Right?” “Right. My ex-wife and I, we trade off Christmases.” Carol eyed Michelle. “I see.” Her smile was wide as she did a slow turn away, making sure Michelle saw the “go-get-him” look in her eye. 

No. You’re not a pot stirrer, Carol. Right. Michelle laughed nervously, but thankfully, Thomas was laughing too.
