DYING FOR A DATE
Unsure if she is looking for Mr. Right or Mr. Every Other Saturday Night, recently divorced Laurel McKay, reluctantly joins THE LOVE CLUB, a local dating service. When her first two dates are found dead, the police can’t decide if she’s the killer—or the next target. That’s motivation for Laurel to find the murderer before dating becomes a dead end she can’t escape.
DYING FOR A DANCE
Discovering she has two left feet isn’t the biggest problem for Laurel McKay when she agrees to learn a foxtrot routine for her best friend’s wedding. Stumbling over the lifeless body of a sexy ballroom dance star with her broken shoe heel stuffed in his mouth…is far worse. Almost as bad as running into the hunky detective she dated briefly before he disappeared from her life. Navigating kids, career, wedding planning and murder requires some fancy footwork. Can Laurel tango with a killer and stay alive?
DYING FOR A DAIQUIRI
When Laurel McKay attends a Hawaiian wedding, her vacation soon becomes more deadly than the calorie count in her daiquiri. When a family member is arrested for the murder, Laurel is plunged into a mystery where exotic Big Island locations–a coffee plantation, black sand beaches and a volcano–reveal their deadly side. Will ingenuity and pluck be enough? Or will this hula be her last?
DYING FOR A DUDE
When Laurel McKay agrees to perform with the Sassy Saloon Gals during Hangtown’s annual Wagon Train parade, her greatest fear is a wardrobe malfunction. Before she can lace up her corset, a 150-year-old skeleton turns up on her grandmother’s property. Then the body of a prominent citizen is discovered shortly after Laurel’s ex-husband decked him. When her detective boyfriend throws her ex in jail for murder, Laurel, with the help of her zany friends and family, must find the real killer.
DYING FOR A DONUT
To Laurel McKay, there is nothing better than spending an autumn afternoon munching on caramel apples and cinnamon donuts. Then Laurel stumbles over the Apple Tree Farm Bakery owner coated in powdered sugar. Axel Thorson was a well-respected member of the community. Who wanted to sweeten him up? Detecting among donuts should be a piece of cake, but not if Laurel discovers first-hand that sugar can kill you.
DYING FOR A DIAMOND
When newlyweds Laurel McKay and Tom Hunter embark on their honeymoon cruise, they look forward to sunny days exploring the Caribbean islands and intimate evenings together. Their dream quickly goes “poof,” when Laurel’s family decides to tag along. After a series of diamond thefts, Laurel discovers that suspicious shipmates are as plentiful as calories on this cruise. When a murder occurs, and a family member becomes the top suspect, Laurel is determined to unmask the killer before her dream honeymoon becomes a nautical nightmare.
