Book 2 of The Princess Maura Tales—a five book series.  A treat for readers who love legends, myths, epic fantasy, and adventure tales mixed with action and a spoonful of supernatural.

 

Princess Maura is now the ruler of Hasan Daeg, but she has been captured by Aga Dorak who intends to marry her and consolidate his power over her country.

 

With her army destroyed, Maura has no other choice, but to marry Dorak and hope she can curb his warlike tendencies.  And there’s another problem––she’s fallen in love with him.

 

Maura knows she must put her feelings aside and do what is best for her people.  She must  seek out the Royal Bogazkoy––a powerful plant which will give her enormous power to resist the conquering Bhuttanians.

 

What should she do?  Marry Dorak and try to conquer his heart, or escape to find the Royal Bogazkoy and fulfill her destiny?

 Three Great Mysteries In One Package!

Death By Haunting 7
Terrence Bailey awakes one night to find his mother-in-law standing in a corner of his bedroom. The only problem is that his mother-in-law has been dead for seven years. Several weeks later Terrence dies of a heart attack . . . or does he? Josiah's nose starts twitching in a bad way when Terrence goes to the "Great Beyond" and she thinks his death has something to do with Jean Louis, an internationally known portrait artist who has come to the Bluegrass to paint Lady Elsmere's portrait. She just doesn't like Jean Louis and does some digging on him. What she finds will involve Detective Goetz and almost get her daughter, Asa, shot. Again, Josiah blames the black earth of Kentucky for spitting back secrets that should have remained buried in the dark and bloody ground.

Death By Derby 8
Charlie Hoskins was a self-made man. Born poor as a church mouse, he was relentless in his pursuit of money to the point of being universally hated. Oh, he was admired for his rags-to-riches story. He was admired for being a good businessman. But Charlie never learned tact and made many enemies in the process of realizing his goals. He didn’t care that in order to accomplish his dreams, he trampled on those of others. So it didn’t surprise Josiah Reynolds when someone decided to kill Charlie. The only thing that bothered her was that her lawyer and friend, Shaneika Mary Todd, might have done the dirty deed! Join Josiah as she discovers the truth in a world that hides its secrets among antebellum mansions and million dollar horses grazing in emerald pastures.
This is the world of the Bluegrass . . . a world of wealth, privilege, and now murder!

Death By Design 9
Josiah Reynolds could hardly believe she heard someone call out her name as she strolled down 75th Street in New York City. With the promise of a free drink, Bunny Witt, of the Philadelphia Witts, steered Josiah into nearby Bemelmans Bar where she proceeded to unfold a tale about being stalked by a mysterious stranger. It seems that Bunny’s apartments in London, New York, and Lexington, Kentucky have been broken into and carefully searched, yet nothing seems to have been taken. Bunny claims she has no idea what this mystery person could want from her. However, she is desperate for someone to help her find out who is tormenting her and why. She has decided that someone should be our Josiah! This chance encounter in the Big Apple leads Josiah into the world of haute couture, mysterious princes from India, precious gems, and . . . murder!

Death By Bourbon:  Life takes a dramatic turn for Josiah when she witnesses a death at an engagement party for Matt, her best friend.

Charming socialite Addison DeWitt falls into a fit after taking a sip of bourbon. That would be upsetting enough, but Josiah is sure it is murder. However, no one will believe her except for Lady Elsmere and Meriah Caldwell, the famous mystery writer. The three of them conspire to bring the murderer to justice. It turns out the suspect is always three steps ahead of them.

To make matters worse, Josiah's daughter, Asa decides to move to London, Franklin leaves town, and Jake starts singing a different tune. Josiah doubts her ability to meet the future alone. Maybe it's time to sell the Butterfly and move to Florida with the rest of the old folks.

But Josiah is sure of one thing. There is justice and then there is Kentucky justice.

 

Death By Lotto:  Ethel Bradley thinks someone is trying to kill her, but doesn’t know who or why. She enlists the help of her childhood friend, Lady Elsmere, but Lady Elsmere has troubles of her own in the form of a ne’er-do-well English nephew who’s trying to steal her estate. Both women turn to Josiah Reynolds, who has just returned from New York.

Josiah calls Detective Goetz who recommends a shamus named Walter Neff. Walter and Josiah scour the Bluegrass for answers that turn out to be deadly. To make matters worse for Josiah, Fred O’nan (the rogue cop who tried to kill Josiah in Death By A HoneyBee) is a free man and still gunning for her.

Josiah, full of sass and vinegar, meets these challenges head on with the support of her friends, Franklin and Matt. Will Josiah be thwarted this time?

Kentucky can be a cruel mistress to those wanting justice and exacts a high price for it. Sometimes the “dark and bloody ground” demands double indemnity. This is something Josiah knows very well. Very well indeed.

 

Death By Chocolate:  Josiah Reynolds is tracking down the disappearance of an old friend’s son. But while she is chasing a missing person, O’nan is hot on Josiah’s trail chasing her. And he is threatening, conniving, and blackmailing others to help destroy the woman he thinks ruined his life. Will he finally succeed?

Or will Josiah outwit him as she has always done?

One thing is for sure . . . when Josiah and O’nan finally clash at the Cumberland Falls, will justice will be done? As Josiah always says - there is the law and then there is Kentucky justice.

Will Josiah survive the thundering and treacherous waters of the Cumberland Falls or will O'nan finally push our brave Josiah over the edge?
