Cindy and Mattheus, still reeling from Key West, unsure where their relationship stands, prepare to take some time away from each other—when a shocking call arrives. A beautiful bride is missing, the night before her destination wedding in the magnificent Cayman Islands. The groom, the last one to see her alive during their scuba diving outing, is the prime suspect.

But the groom’s family insists he is innocent, and they hire Cindy and Mattheus to find out the truth. Cindy understands the pain of an ocean accident all too well, and the case strikes uncomfortably close to home, evoking memories of Clint at every turn.

Police and Coast Guard search the sea and land, but the bride, Allie is nowhere to be found. Family, wedding party and guests have all been detained at their luxury hotel to be questioned. Was it an accident? Did the bride run away? Or has someone killed her? Who could have wanted her dead?

As Cindy and Mattheus investigate and interview those at the celebration, we journey into the incredible wealth and opulence of the Islands and the lifestyle of those who have come down to celebrate the wedding and vacation there. As their relationships are exposed, we see the effects of wealth, greed, and intense jealousy, and how it runs their lives. We also meet Mac, a charismatic, suave partner in the firm who develops an attachment to Cindy, and Vivien, a gorgeous guest, who no man can resist. As Vivien goes after Mattheus, and Mac pursues Cindy, we watch Cindy and Mattheus’s relationship struggle and become infected by jealousy and suspicion as well.

In a shocking turn of events, Cindy finds out more about Allie than anyone knew. And as the investigation takes a deadly turn, Cindy’s life is in danger, not once but twice. Once again, we see the forces of darkness try to undermine the search for truth. Will Cindy and Mattheus untangle the web of secrets among the rich and famous before it is too late?

DEATH BY JEALOUSY is both a stand-alone novel, and is also Book #6 in the Caribbean Murder series, following DEATH BY HONEYMOON (Book #1), DEATH BY DIVORCE (Book #2) and DEATH BY MARRIAGE (Book #3), DEATH BY DESIRE (Book #4) and DEATH BY DECEIT (Book #5).

DEATH BY HONEYMOON (BOOK #1 OF THE CARIBBEAN MURDER SERIES) is a FREE download, and is Book #1 in the #1 Bestselling series, which includes 8 books.

On the rugged, wild, eastern shore of Barbados, Cindy and Clint are enjoying their dream honeymoon, when paradise quickly turns into hell. Cindy finds her newly beloved taken away from her, drowned in a freak accident in the ocean. The local police are quick to declare it an accident, to insist that he was caught in a sudden riptide. But Cindy, left all alone, is not convinced.

Cindy must return to her and Clint’s now-empty home in New York and face her in-laws, who never wanted Clint to marry her, and who did everything to make her engagement and wedding hell. She must deal with all of these women’s backbiting, gossiping and unspoken accusations, while she tries to get a handle on her own grief and to get clear on what really happened to Clint.

Cindy is mailed an anonymous photo of a woman she had never met, addressed to Clint. As she tries to unravel the mysterious package, as she begins to dig deeper into Clint’s emails and files, she realizes how many secrets Clint had been hiding from his past. She realizes that she didn’t really know the man she loved. And she also realizes that Clint was murdered.

She digs deeper, into the depths of Clint’s massive corporation, DGB oil, and as she starts to unearth information she shouldn’t, she goes too far. Soon her own life is in peril. On the run, she realizes that the only way to get answers, and to save her own life, is to return to where it all began: Barbados. As she heads into the dark underside of the island, into the heart of the local villages, she is shocked to discover what really happened to her husband on their honeymoon.

But by then, it may already be too late.

And as she digs deeper into Ames’ life, she is shocked to discover how many secrets he had been hiding from his wife—and that she never really knew the man she loved.

The police at first refuse to take her seriously, but they soon gain respect for her tough intelligence, courage and determination. Cindy’s relationship with one cop in particular, Mattheus, develops in unexpected ways, as they give each other solace from their losses.

But Cindy digs too deep. Soon, she finds her own life in peril, as she heads into the dark underside of the island. Startling developments in the investigation lead to a shocking ending, as a body is discovered, and Cindy alone must find out if they’ve convicted the wrong person…

Cindy and Mattheus, finally together, prepare to take time off and live together—when a stunning upset in their relationship tears them apart. Cindy flies home to New York, resigned to never work as a detective—and never see Mattheus—again. 

And then a shocking phone call comes out of the blue: it is Mattheus. A new body has turned up. Cindy at first refuses—until he tells her who it is: his wife. They finally found her, on the shores of Key West. Brutally murdered, they suspect, by an abusive boyfriend. 

Mattheus’ world is upside down, and Cindy has no choice but to fly back down to the islands and help him uncover what really happened. Why did she turn up now, after so many years? How did she turn up in Key West, so far from where he’d last seen her? Why had she never contacted him? Who was she dating? And have the police caught the right man?

It is an enchanting place—but as Cindy learns, it is also a place with a dark underbelly. Cindy prods deeper into the murder and her investigation takes her into the world of an abused woman’s shelter. Soon, she is convinced the police have the wrong man.

Cindy und Mattheus sind noch immer erschüttert von den Ereignissen auf Key West. Unsicher, wie es um ihre Beziehung steht, nehmen sie sich eine Auszeit voneinander – als sie ein schockierender Anruf erreicht. Eine schöne junge Braut verschwindet eine Nacht, bevor ihre Hochzeit auf den wunderschönen Cayman Inseln stattfinden soll. Verdächtigt wird der Bräutigam, weil er sie bei einem gemeinsamen Tauchausflug zuletzt gesehen hat.

Aber die Familie des Bräutigams ist sich sicher, dass er unschuldig ist. Sie heuern Cindy und Mattheus an, um die Wahrheit herauszufinden. Cindy kann den Schmerz, einen Menschen ans Meer zu verlieren nur zu gut nachvollziehen und erinnert sie schmerzlich an ihre Erfahrung mit Clint.

Polizei und Küstenwache suchen an Land und im Meer, aber Allie, die Braut, bleibt verschollen. Die Familien und die Hochzeitsgäste werden zur Befragung in ihren Hotels festgehalten. War es ein Unfall? Ist die Braut davon gelaufen? Oder wurde sie getötet? Wer könnte es getan haben?

Umso eingehender Cindy und Mattheus die Gäste befragen, desto tiefer dringen sie in eine Welt voller Reichtum und Überfluss ein. Sie lernen das Leben der Menschen kennen, die auf diese Inseln gekommen sind um Urlaub machen. Als die Verhältnisse sich langsam klären, werden die Gier und die Eifersucht deutlich, die das Leben dieser Leute bestimmt. Sie treffen Mac, einen charismatischen Firmenpartner, der sich sehr für Cindy interessiert, und Vivian, einen attraktiven und unwiderstehlichen Hochzeitsgast. Während sich Vivian Mattheus annähert, werden auch Mac und Cindy immer vertrauter, bis auch das Verhältnis von Cindy und Mattheus von Eifersucht bedroht wird.

Durch eine rasante Wendung findet Cindy mehr über die Braut heraus und gerät schließlich selbst in Gefahr. Wieder einmal beschattet die Macht der Finsternis die Suche nach der Wahrheit. Werden Cindy und Mattheus das Netz der Geheimnissen in dieser schönen und reichen Welt entwirren können, bevor es zu spät ist?

Quando le sparisce il marito, una vecchia amica di Cindy la chiama chiedendo aiuto. Appena uscita dalla sua tragedia, Cindy ritorna ai Caraibi, stavolta nella splendida e lussureggiante isola di Grenada, per ritrovarlo.

Cindy, ancora afflitta per la morte di suo marito, va a stare nell'incredibile villa sull'oceano della sua amica, mentre fa del suo meglio per aiutarla a rintracciare suo marito Ames. Nel corso delle indagini, Cindy incontra sull'isola vari personaggi, gente del luogo, grandi ricconi, le cui vite sembrano tutte intrecciate fra loro, per questioni di cuore o di loschi affari. Man mano che Cindy scopre relazioni segrete e strani giri di soldi e droga, si rende conto che sull'isola esiste una fitta rete, invisibile agli occhi della gente. E mentre scava sempre più a fondo nella vita di Ames, rimane sconvolta nello scoprire quanti segreti aveva nascosto a sua moglie — e che lei non conosceva per nulla l'uomo che amava. 

All'inizio la polizia si rifiuta di prenderla sul serio, ma iniziano presto a mostrare rispetto per la sua intelligenza, il suo coraggio e la sua caparbietà. Il rapporto di Cindy con un poliziotto in particolare, Mattheus, prende strade inaspettate, dopo essersi ritrovati a darsi conforto a vicenda per le rispettive perdite.

Ma Cindy scava troppo a fondo. Mentre si addentra nella parte più misteriosa e nascosta dell'isola, scoprirà presto che è la sua stessa vita a essere in pericolo. Sorprendenti sviluppi delle indagini portano a una scioccante conclusione, quando il cadavere viene scoperto e Cindy deve scoprire da sola se hanno incolpato la persona sbagliata…
