About the author

On my journey to becoming a writer, I have had many jobs, some paid, some not.The unpaid jobs began cleverly disguised as my being "a little helper." I did household chores, which evolved, to lawn care specialist (grass cutter and weed puller.) Unpaid work was part and parcel of pulling my weight in my family. However, I did get a cool pair of Calvin Klein jeans and a pair of powder blue cat-eye prescription glasses- so there was that.My paid jobs were just as diverse.Once upon a time I was a health club supervisor, a waitress, a babysitter, a fast food server, a retail worker, an insurance claims adjuster, an exercise instructor, an adjunct college professor, a cable TV regional trainer, an NBA professional cheerleader, freelance journalist, a model, and backstage security. Those are just the ones I can spout off the top of my head, and not necessarily in chronological order.In addition to all of those disparate jobs, I have been a full-time dreamer.Always have and always will be. I live in my head. Yes, I have real-life friends. And yes, I have a tangible life complete with a husband, four children and pets. But now, through writing, I get to share the stories I imagine in my head with readers like you. I cannot thank you enough for that. I consider you part of my family. But I draw the line at scrubbing your bathroom or mowing your lawn. However, I could be talked into joining you for a glass of ice tea or a beer.

This special collection contains the first three Georgia Coast Cozy Mysteries - Dying for Dinner Rolls, Murderous Muffins, and Homicide by Hamlet - in a single volume full of mystery, suspense, humor, and southern charm.

DYING FOR DINNER ROLLS (Book 1): Catherine "Cat" Thompson has been held at gunpoint, stuck in a burning dumpster, chased out of a grocery store, caught impersonating a police officer and almost run over by a wayward vehicle. How's that for her first day as an amateur sleuth?

With her friend Annie Mae, Cat investigates the brick-paved, oak-lined streets of Savannah to catch their friend's killer. But it's anything but smooth sailing for these self appointed detectives. Can they catch the killer before the killer gets them? Or will their first case also be their last?

MURDEROUS MUFFINS (Book 2): Bezu is a beautiful southern belle with genteel manners. Her problems, however, are anything but.

Deep in debt, Bezu's illegally taken in a few lodgers: A sweet stripper and her bodybuilder boyfriend, an Asian man loudly learning English through pop music, and a mysterious stranger with the most amazing blue-green eyes—and a secret. And when one of the boarders dies—with her muffins used as the murder weapon—Bezu must catch the killer before she ends up in jail…or worse.

HOMICIDE BY HAMLET (Book 3): Annie Mae has one last job before she retires from a thirty-year career in academia: one week of summer theater camp. Easy peasy--she's worked at the camp for so many years she could do it with her eyes closed.

Until a team leader is murdered, and all hell breaks loose.

Now, everyone is a suspect--and everyone has a secret. And Annie Mae has to catch the killer before she becomes the next victim.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Family secrets come back to haunt Jack Reacher in this electrifying thriller from “a superb craftsman of suspense” (Entertainment Weekly).

Jack Reacher hits the pavement and sticks out his thumb. He plans to follow the sun on an epic trip across America, from Maine to California. He doesn’t get far. On a country road deep in the New England woods, he sees a sign to a place he has never been: the town where his father was born. He thinks, What’s one extra day? He takes the detour.

At the same moment, in the same isolated area, a car breaks down. Two young Canadians had been on their way to New York City to sell a treasure. Now they’re stranded at a lonely motel in the middle of nowhere. The owners seem almost too friendly. It’s a strange place, but it’s all there is.

The next morning, in the city clerk’s office, Reacher asks about the old family home. He’s told no one named Reacher ever lived in town. He’s always known his father left and never returned, but now Reacher wonders, Was he ever there in the first place?

As Reacher explores his father’s life, and as the Canadians face lethal dangers, strands of different stories begin to merge. Then Reacher makes a shocking discovery: The present can be tough, but the past can be tense . . . and deadly.

Praise for Past Tense

“Child is one writer who should never be taken for granted.”—The New York Times Book Review

“[Lee Child] shows no signs of slowing down. . . . Reacher is a man for whom the phrase moral compass was invented: His code determines his direction. . . . You need Jack Reacher.”—The Atlantic

“Superb . . . Child neatly interweaves multiple narratives, ratchets up the suspense (the reveal of the motel plot is delicious), and delivers a powerful, satisfying denouement. Fans will enjoy learning more of this enduring character’s roots, and Child’s spare prose continues to set a very high bar.”—Publishers Weekly (boxed and starred review)

“Another first-class entry in a series that continues to set the gold standard for aspiring thriller authors.”—Booklist (starred review)

“With his usual flair for succinctness and eye for detail, Child creates another rollicking Reacher road trip that will please fans and newcomers alike.”—Library Journal (starred review)
