New Cover

I am so thrilled to finally be able to post the new cover for the first book in my upcoming humorous mystery series. Yes, humor lovers, I promise I hadn't forgotten you. I've been working on a concept for a new series and I hope you like it.

This one is not a romance. It's a mystery with the same heroine every book. It will have a romantic element (think Janet Evanovich), but no happily ever after at the end of each book, other than the bad getting his/her due. :)

Here's the back cover copy:

IT WAS A HELL OF A LONGSHOT....


CIA Assassin Fortune Redding is about to undertake her most difficult mission ever - in Sinful, Louisiana.


With a leak at the CIA and a price on her head by one of the world's largest arms' dealers, Fortune has to go off grid, but she never expected to be this far out of her element. Posing as a former beauty queen turned librarian in a small, bayou town seems worse than death to Fortune, but she's determined to fly below the radar until her boss finds the leak and puts the arms' dealer out of play.


Unfortunately, she hasn't even unpacked a suitcase before her newly-inherited dog digs up a human bone in her backyard. Thrust into the middle of a bayou, murder mystery, Fortune teams up with a couple of seemingly-sweet, old ladies whose looks completely belie their hold on the little town. To top things off, the handsome local deputy is asking her too many questions. If she's not careful, this investigation may blow her cover and get her killed.


Armed with her considerable skills and a group of old ladies referred to by locals as The Geritol Mafia, Fortune has no choice but to solve the murder before it's too late.


It should release late June, early July. Be watching for the announcement!
