Summer Reads

Looking for a good beach read?  
By Robin Weaver


Look no further than DEAR KILLER. This Marley Clark mystery is one of the best books I've read by a debut author. Linda Lovely does an awesome job of surprising the reader--you never know what will happen next--and the writing is excellent.


To keep busy, Marley works security for a Sea Island resort in the South Carolina Lowcountry. The feisty widow’s yawner of a job turns into a deadly battle of wits after she finds an islander drowned and bobbing naked amid a potpourri of veggies in a Jacuzzi. Each death pairs with a grizzly pun.


Marley is a great and spunky heroine who will have you rooting for her from page one and Ms. Lovely's subtle descriptions of Deer Island will have you planning your own beach retreat.


DEAR KILLER is the first in a series of Marley Clark adventures that combine heart-pounding suspense with generous sides of romance and humor.  The sequel, NO WAKE ZONE, is just as good and both are also available as audio books.

SPECIAL NOTE:  Linda's thriller DEAD LINE will be available soon.



Rather visit the mountains?


DEATH STRETCH is another excellent summer read. Author Ashantay Peters does what we’ve all wanted to do—she kills off that annoying (and far too flexible) yoga instructor.


When Katie Sheridan's best friend is blackmailed over an affair with a yoga instructor, Katie stuffs her body into workout togs to help find the culprit. She learns yoga can be a killer when the instructor winds up dead. Worse, Katie is a suspect, and finds herself tangling with the sexy, commanding cop investigating the case.


Detective Dirk Johnson knows getting involved with a material witness--especially one as reckless as Katie--means trouble, but his heart and protective instincts aren't logical. With passion as the final reward, they find fighting temptation is highly overrated.


Don’t even try to stay cool. Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, DEATH STRETCH will have you fanning yourself until the very last page.

Thanks for the promo, Robin. Actually Dead Line is available NOW. I really enjoyed Death Stretch. Author Ashantay Peters' sense of humor is right up my alley.

Robin, thanks for the review of "Death Stretch". I've yet to read Linda's Marley Clark series - still very behind on my TBR pile!
