Although she misses seeing regular deposits into her bank account, she hasn't once regretted that decision.
These days, Marla enjoys inventing imaginary friends and killing them off. She's thrilled to have finally found a use for that bachelor's in psychology: getting into her characters' heads. When she's not plotting murder, she spends her time fighting for mattress space with her two rescue cats.

On the night of her engagement, Rae Lynn Dobbs stumbles across a dead body on the beach of White Sands, Florida. Not only does she recognize the murder victim as one of the retirement-home residents where she serves dinner, but it looks increasingly likely that someone there also killed him.
To her fiancé's dismay, Rae Lynn launches her own investigation. Between the gossipy widows, the home's last surviving bachelor, and her coworkers, Rae Lynn doesn't have any shortage of suspects. But the more she learns, the more it seems anyone could be guilty. And if she doesn't find out "whodunit" quickly, her fiancé might just become fed up enough to leave.
For fans of cozy, chick-lit mysteries, humorous women's fiction, quirky amateur sleuths, feisty seniors, and standalone novels set in Florida.

From the author of Sunday Times bestseller, Local Girl Missing
One lied. One died.
When one sister dies, the other must go to desperate lengths to survive
After a tragic accident, still haunted by her twin sister’s death, Abi is making a fresh start in Bath. But when she meets siblings Bea and Ben, she is quickly drawn into their privileged and unsettling circle.
When one sister lies, she must protect her secret at all costs
As Abi tries to keep up with the demands of her fickle friends, strange things start to happen – precious letters go missing and threatening messages are left in her room. Is this the work of the beautiful and capricious Bea? Or is Abi willing to go to any lengths to get attention?
When the truth outs, will either sister survive?
Amy Wagner refuses to believe her sister Gina's fatal fire was a tragic accident, regardless of what the arson investigation concludes. Not only does Gina never cook, but her laboratory burned down just one week prior. The timing is a little too suspicious for Amy's tastes.
Amy is not the only one questioning whether her sister was murdered. Trent Steinbeck, Gina's colleague, also wants answers. As they work to uncover what really happened that fateful night, Amy finds her attraction deepening as much as their investigation. But to get to the truth, Trent may need to put himself in danger. And if they can't figure out what's going on before he becomes the killer's next victim, Amy might soon find herself seeking justice for two deaths.
For fans of cozy, chick-lit mysteries, standalone mystery novels, women sleuths, humorous books set in Seattle, and clean fiction.
