Well it’s live. A Luring Murder is finally available as a free e-book download. It will be free for the month of November as a thank you to everyone who made A Grand Murder such a success.
A Luring Murder is the book that never was. I had written a completely different follow-up to A Grand Murder (Those of you who have your copy handy can see the advertisement in the back of the book). Then people started commenting that they couldn’t wait to find out what happens to Catherine on vacation. Um, that hadn’t crossed my mind. The second book took place several months after A Grand Murder ended.
Since it’s my job to entertain, and the motto for entertainment is give them what they want, I set to work on the “Vacation Book” as I called it for the past few months. I felt rushed through this whole process and I hope that I haven’t cheated the reader in any way by rushing this book.
Below is the blurb for the book.
The irreverent detective is back, and this time she’s on vacation.
God help us all.
St. Paul, Minnesota Homicide Detective Catherine O’Brien and her loving husband Gavin are vacationing on one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes. When a local is murdered Catherine is tapped to help the small town Sheriff until the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension arrives to take over the investigation.
Catherine is surprised when her partner Louise and Diggs the forensic pathologist, whose crush on Louise is only dwarfed by his own genius, shows up to assist instead of the BCA.
Before long Catherine and Louise discover this sleepy little town has a dark side hidden beneath its placid lake charms. Somewhere in the tangle of cheating and deception is a motive for murder.
