Angel isn’t looking for any more challenges as she transitions from active duty to local international gift shop owner and is a new an empty-nester.

A former helicopter pilot with combat experience, Angel’s not going to let this mission unfold on its own…she throws herself wholeheartedly into the investigation.

Feeling Cozy?

August 5, 2022

My first mystery series launches November 2nd with the first book in the Shop ‘Round the World series, A Santa Stabbing. Pre Order the ebook now. Print will be available closer to November. Shop ‘Round the World is a cozy mystery series, meaning there is no graphic or gory violence on the page, and any romance is sweet. Angel Warren, a retired Navy pilot, certainly has a romantic interest in Nate, the silver fox barista at Latte Love,  Stonebridge, PA’s coffee shop. But this is a murder mystery, which means a dead body! Interested? Check out this excerpt.
