Killer Christmas (Book 1)

After breaking up with hunky movie star Nick Doyle, superstar singer Emma Wild returns to her hometown for Christmas to get away from it all. In Hartfield, a small town in Ontario, Canada, she gets caught up in a murder case after a fan's drink is poisoned at the Chocoholic Cafe, owned by Emma's sister Mirabelle.

Who is the killer and was the drink originally intended for Emma? To add to the chaos, Sterling Matthews is the detective on the case. He'd shattered her heart nine years ago and inspired all her hit singles, but now they must work together to find the murderer before the murderer finds Emma.

New Year’s Slay (Book 2)

Things are heating up with Emma’s high school sweetheart, the handsome Detective Sterling Matthews, but when her movie star ex, Nick Doyle, comes looking for her with a huge diamond engagement ring, Emma’s world turns upside down. 

When the owner of The Sweet Dreams Inn is stabbed to death with a chunky knitting needle, Nick is the prime suspect because he is the inn's only guest. Emma and Sterling must work together once again to prove Nick's innocence and find the real killer.

Three’s a crowd in this murder case. Will Emma make up her mind between her first love and her Hollywood hunk?

Includes special recipes.

Death of a Snowman (Book 3) 

Everything's going well for singer Emma Wild. Taking a break from her crazy celebrity life in Hartfield has been a refreshing change, even if she did have some difficulty choosing between her movie star boyfriend Nick Doyle and her high school sweetheart Detective Sterling Matthews. But she has made up her mind: she knows who she wants to spend the rest of her life with. 

The mayor of Hartfield asks Emma to perform at the annual Snowman Festival, where there are a plethora of fun activities to cure the townspeople of their winter blues every January. But when the mayor’s two children are kidnapped in broad daylight during the snowman building contest, Emma snaps into detective mode. The only clue she has is a ransom note, which contains a couple of lines from an obscure poet named Harold Winken. She thought she also saw the children talking to a man from the stage when she was performing, but she has no idea who this mysterious man could be.

Emma asks Detective Sterling Matthews for help, but he has a new partner, a smart and beautiful brunette named Sandra who only sees Emma as a shallow nuisance. Can Emma solve the case on her own and prove that she’s more than a pretty face.

Includes snow cone recipes.

Valentine’s Day Victim (Book 4)

It looks like superstar singer Emma Wild is going to be single on Valentine’s Day. She’s ignoring all of Detective Sterling Matthew’s calls and evading her promotional duties for her third album release. All she wants to do is sit at home, watch trashy TV shows and eat junk food. 

But a journalist from Rolling Stone magazine on a tight deadline tracks her down and follows her around town the same time that Emma’s sister Mirabelle invites her to be one of the judges for the town’s annual baking contest. After the contest is over, Emma finds the winner’s dead body in a toilet stall! While Sterling and his partner Sandra arrests a contestant named Cherry, Emma thinks they have the wrong suspect. 

Can she figure out who it is before the murderer kills someone else?
