Cindy and Mattheus, finally away together for a much
needed vacation on the beautiful island of Aruba, are awakened by horrible
shouts of despair. A guest at the hotel has just discovered his new fiancée
dead under their window, sprawled out on the courtyard below, soon after he had
proposed. The two recently met online, had a long-distance internet
relationship, and had met in person only a few times. The entire hotel is
terrified and mobilized. Was it suicide or was it murder?



Despite pressure from Mattheus for Cindy to focus on their relationship and not
become involved, she has to fulfill the promise she made to herself to help victims
of crime. Cindy can’t stop herself from jumping in and helping.



Cindy and Mattheus’s relationship is put under strain as the tension heats up
as they explore the strange web of relationships between the family of the young
woman and her new fiancée. They meet the lackadaisical police on the Island, the
victim’s strange father who always expected her to die, and the dead woman’s
hot-headed boyfriend who recently turned up at the hotel with his new
girlfriend. They are propelled deep into the worlds of counterfeit love,
fantasy relationships, and the horror of not knowing the truth about the person
you are with.

take place in St. Martin, when Cindy and Mattheus get an emergency call from
the father of the bride. He wants them to come down to the island immediately
and dig up dirt on the groom. He can’t shake his bad feeling about the guy, even
though all his other investigations didn’t turn up a thing.
 



Cindy and
Mattheus, who have been spending time building their relationship and are much
closer, agree to come down on a lark and see what they can find. With help from
informants from the seamy side of the island, they stumble upon a shocking secret
that no one knows about: not his friends, not his family, and not his bride.



Cindy and
Mattheus disagree about what should be done. But as the father confronts the
bride with the news, it sets off a dramatic and unexpected response. Soon, a sudden
death follows.



As all of
this is going on, Cindy unexpectedly discovers something that also shakes her
world: Mattheus, too, has a deep, dark secret that he has never told her. As
Cindy and Mattheus investigate the awful homicide, they must also deal with
this new revelation which threatens to tear their relationship apart.



Death by
Obsession brings us into the heart of love, passion, secrets and lies.

DEATH BY DEVOTION is Book
#9 in the Bestselling Caribbean Murder series, which begins with the free book
DEATH BY HONEYMOON (Book #1). 



Before
they get engaged, Cindy urges Mattheus to meet his long-lost Caribbean
daughter, whom he has never met.  Sixteen
years ago, after a one night stand, the woman became pregnant, and Mattheus
quickly left. Mattheus’ beautiful, volatile, fifteen year old daughter, Andrea,
badly needs him, and she wants him to come to Anguilla, where she lives, so
they can get to know each other. One caveat, though: he has to come without
Cindy. Andrea has a mother, and one mother is enough. Mattheus feels his
daughter is in trouble, feels compelled to go, and abruptly leaves Cindy
behind.



Convinced that her relationship with Mattheus is over, Cindy returns to the
States, ready to start her life again. A few days after she gets back, amidst
the excitement and a wonderful job offer, she receives a startling call from
Mattheus down in Anguilla: Andrea’s stepfather has been killed and Andrea was
found beside him, covered in his blood. Mattheus, desperate, begs Cindy to come
down and help. Not only has his daughter been taken into custody—but now he is
a suspect as well.



Unable to say no, Cindy returns to the Caribbean to help find the true killer
and to attempt to free both Mattheus and his daughter—but she soon finds that
she’s up against an underground web of danger on the island, and it may be too
late to save all of them—including herself.


DEATH BY DEVOTION is both a stand-alone novel, and is also Book #9 in the
Caribbean Murder series.

 A bundle of the first three books in the #1 Bestselling Caribbean Murder series (romantic suspense) for an amazing price!In DEATH BY HONEYMOON (Book #1), 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.

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?
