The Ghosts of Landover Series

Over My Dead Husband’s Body

A free house and a dead ex-husband?
That’s like winning the Powerball

Carly Taylor swore she’d never go back to Potter Grove. That cesspool of a small town always seemed to be teeming with gossip, and most of it was about her and her lying, drunken, rich husband who hung out at strip clubs and cheated on her. But that was four years ago. And now, that jerk is dead.

It’s the reason Carly’s finally heading back. Her ex-husband left her his house when he died, and Carly figures you’d have to be some sort of stupid to pass up a free house. It’s like winning the Lotto, especially when it involves a dead ex too. But the town seems different to her now, like something is off. And it’s not just the fact there’s a murderer on the loose and women are missing.

As soon as Carly signs the paperwork on the spooky Victorian, she finds out her Lotto win has a catch. And it’s an annoying, snotty one. Her dead ex-husband is haunting her free house. He wants her to solve his murder, which Carly is in no hurry to do, until the missing women are tied to her ex’s death and figuring out his case takes on a new level of urgency.

But just like a free house, nothing is ever as safe as it seems, especially when you’re forced to solve crimes with your dead ex-husband.

Newly divorced Marcie hates men. All men, she doesn’t discriminate. So when she takes a job at her aunt’s sketchy matchmaking club, she knows it’s going to mean trouble. Love is a sham, after must-love-murder_new-size_smallerall. But she never thought she’d be solving a murder, especially not the murder of her aunt’s horrible neighbor who calls the matchmaking club a brothel, and snoops where he shouldn’t be snooping. The guy kind of had it coming.

But when her aunt becomes the main suspect and the police don’t seem to care that things aren’t matching up like they should, Marcie is forced to become the perfect match for the evil man’s puzzling murder — while finding her own perfect match in the process.

P.S. I Poisoned You: A Sketchy Matchmaker Mystery, Book Two

Who knew murder could be so life changing?
Marcie Henderson is in the middle of some pretty massive changes in life. Her new job at the matchmaking club is going better than she expected — maybe love isn’t a sham after all. She’s slowly learning to trust Y-chromosomes again, thanks to her new relationship with gorgeous retired-cop, Brandon. And her ex-husband is finally paying child support. There’s only one problem.

And it’s murder in high heels.

Aunt Mabel’s new client, Stella Harper, is snooty, power-hungry, and treats everyone like a servant – pretty much everything Marcie hates about rich people. So when the woman starts receiving letters that say, “P.S. I poisoned you,” no one is surprised or even cares too much. Plus, Marcie is pretty sure the woman is sending those letters to herself for attention. The big phony.

Until a mysterious death occurs and Marcie is thrown into the middle of it again. This time, she quickly realizes it’s all fun and games to pry into a murder case… until you start receiving P.S. letters of your own. And everything else Marcie thought was going so well in her life… seems poisoned along with it.

P.S. I Poisoned You is the standalone second book in the quirky Sketchy Matchmaker Mystery series, a series dedicated to the fun you can have in the second part of life… and the discoveries that can be made along the way to solving a murder.
