With his dying breath, Bobby Lowell begs Ellison Russell, “Tell her I love her.”

Unable to refuse, Ellison struggles to find the girl the murdered boy loved. Too bad an epically bad blind date, a vindictive graffiti artist, and multiple trips to the emergency room keep getting in the way.

Worse, a killer has Ellison in his sights, her newly-rebellious daughter is missing, and there’s yet another body in her hostas. Mother won’t be pleased.

Now Ellison must track down not one but two runaway teenagers, keep her promise to Bobby and elude the killer—all before her next charity gala committee meeting.

Teaser: Excerpt

     The sight of Hunter Tafft on their front steps might make some women’s hearts flutter. He is, after all, tall and tan and more polished than my grandmother’s silver tea service. He’s also charming and ruthless. The perfect lawyer? Definitely. The perfect date? I wasn’t so sure.
     Hunter smiled at me and my heart fluttered—just a little bit. Such is the power of his thousand watt smile.
     He leaned forward and gave me a chaste kiss on the cheek. “You look lovely.”
     “Thank you.” My damned heart needed to settle back down to a steady beat.
     “Shall we?” He held out his arm.
     My fingers closed on the fine wool of his sports coat. He led me down the steps to his Mercedes. He opened the door and made sure I was safely tucked inside before he closed it. Then he climbed into the driver’s seat and started the car.

The Deep End [1]

Swimming into the lifeless body of her husband’s mistress tends to ruin a woman’s day, but becoming a murder suspect can ruin her whole life.

It’s 1974 and Ellison Russell’s life revolves around her daughter and her art. She’s long since stopped caring about her cheating husband, Henry, and the women with whom he entertains himself. That is, until she becomes a suspect in Madeline Harper’s death. The murder forces Ellison to confront her husband’s proclivities and his crimes—kinky sex, petty cruelties and blackmail.

As the body count approaches par on the seventh hole, Ellison knows she has to catch a killer. But with an interfering mother, an adoring father, a teenage daughter, and a cadre of well-meaning friends demanding her attention, can Ellison find the killer before he finds her?
