MULTIPLE MOTIVES: Kate is normally the one who helps other people cope with trauma and tragedy, but she herself has led a charmed life—until a killer rips it apart. When the lead detective assumes she and her lawyer friend, Rob Franklin, are lovers trying to eliminate their spouses, they must investigate on their own. Who hates them enough to want them both dead…and doesn’t seem to mind if others get caught in the crossfire?
ILL-TIMED ENTANGLEMENTS: No good deed goes unpunished! When Kate agrees to help her friend Rob’s elderly aunt with a problem, the “problem” ends up dead and Kate ends up in the middle of a police investigation. To clear Aunt Betty of suspicion, Kate and her cohorts must wade through a brimming pool of suspects—some of whom have secrets they would prefer stay buried. Meanwhile the residents of Aunt Betty’s retirement community are continuing to die off…and not from natural causes.
FAMILY FALLACIES: Kate returns from maternity leave to the work she loves, only to face a series of disturbing events: anonymous and vaguely threatening notes, a malpractice suit for supposedly planting false memories in a client’s mind, and when a party involved in the lawsuit turns up dead, Kate becomes a murder suspect. There is one bright note, however. She’s falling in love. Now if she could just get the ghost of her dead husband out of her head.
CELEBRITY STATUS: Kate’s new P.I. husband has his first celebrity client, a pop singer whose anonymous stalker has a twisted concept of love. Before he realizes just how twisted, he involves his psychotherapist wife in the case. Soon they are being hounded by paparazzi and someone is planting evidence to convince Skip that Kate and Rob are lovers. Struggling to deal with this onslaught of unwanted attention and a stalker who will stop at nothing, Kate and Skip must face the reality that you can’t always keep those you love from harm.
COLLATERAL CASUALTIES: When a former psychotherapy client reaches out to Kate and reveals a foreign diplomat’s dark secret, then dies of “natural causes” days later, she isn’t sure what to think. Was the man delusional or is she now privy to dangerous information? Soon she realizes he was not only sane, but he was murdered…and she and anyone she might have told are at risk. Forced into hiding, they struggle to stay one step ahead of a ruthless assassin bent on protecting the ambassador’s secret.

About the author
In her youth, Kassandra Lamb had to decide between her two greatest passions, writing and psychology. Being partial to food, heat and electricity, she opted to study psychology. Now that she's retired from her career as a psychotherapist, she can focus on creating an alternate universe in which her protagonist, Kate Huntington, is always the kind, generous and insightful person that Kassandra wishes she was herself.
She has recently launched a new series, the Marcia Banks and Buddy cozy mysteries, in which Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-a, not Marsha) trains service dogs for combat veterans and solves mysteries in her spare time, with the assistance of her black Lab sidekick, Buddy.
When Kassandra's not at her computer, transported in mind and spirit into the world of her characters, she physically lives in Florida, with her husband and her dog.
Kassandra was born in Baltimore and lived in Maryland for the first 50 years of her life. Like Kate Huntington, she was a specialist in trauma recovery for two decades. She also taught psychology at Towson University.
