A murdered art dealer. A missing love-child. Can Michele close the book on her neighbor’s mysterious past before a killer sets his sights on her?

 

With her kids away for the summer, widow Michele Lopez Hanson struggles with her newfound solitude. When her unmarried retired neighbor Gidget asks her to document her career in the art world, she’s eager for the company… and the advice on coping with an empty nest. But their trek down memory lane turns into a missing person search when Gidget dies and leaves behind a will that tasks Michele with finding her long-lost love child.

 

Before the casket lid closes, she feels a wave of sympathy for the endless stream of mourners from Gidget's days as a high-powered art dealer. But when she learns the murderous truth behind Gidget’s death and she's named the prime suspect, Michele realizes any one of the grieving artists and collectors could be the love child's mystery father or her neighbor's killer. To complete the memoir and clear her name, Michele must discover the ugly motives behind the picture-perfect murder before she joins her friend six-feet-under.

"Just when I think I couldn't love another Pamela Fagan Hutchins novel more, along comes Ava. She's smart and sassy, with a story full of juicy plot twists. I enjoyed Bombshell from cover to cover!" — Marcy McKay, author of Pennies from Burger Heaven 

"To finally get a whole book of Ava's beautiful voice and attitude was so much fun. And then to see that her outer armor was mixed with the very real insecurities and struggles that we can all relate to was magical. She personifies bombshell in every sense of word and I can't wait to have her voice in my head again in Stunner." — Tara Scheyer, Grammy-nominated musician, Long-Distance Sisters Book Club 

"Entertaining, complex, and thought-provoking. Each book gets better and better and better (with a) more intricate and complex storyline. [The What Doesn’t Kill You world] started out great, but [Pamela] outdid herself on this one. I am anxiously anticipating the next book about Ava. It was so hard to put this book down once I started reading." — Ginger Copeland, power reader

All Three Full Length Novels In This Multiple Award-winning, Best-selling Romantic Mystery Series

3000-reviews and 4.5-star-average on the series (see individual book pages for reviews).

Saving Grace (Katie, #1) ~ Katie Connell is a high-strung attorney whose sloppy drinking habits and stunted love life collide hilariously during a doomed celebrity case in Dallas. She flees Texas for the Caribbean and escapes professional humiliation, a broken heart, and a wicked Bloody Mary habit, but ends up trading one set of problems for another when she begins to investigate the suspicious deaths of her parents on the island of St. Marcos. She’s bewitched by the voodoo spirit of an abandoned house in the rainforest and discovers that she’s as much a danger to herself as the island’s bad guys are. 

Leaving Annalise (Katie, #2) ~ One unexpected and hotly fought-over little boy, two dead bodies, and a series of home vandalisms throw Texas attorney turned island chanteuse Katie Connell into a tizzy. Juggling all of this, Bloody Mary cravings, baggage, and the bad guys too, she waffles between the jumbie house that brought her back from the brink and the man she believes is the love of her life.

Finding Harmony (Kaite, #3): ~ Katie’s already on edge when a dead guy shows up at Estate Annalise and shady locals claim there are slave remains in the foundation, but when her husband doesn’t come home to her and the kids one day after work, she’s ready to lose it. A frantic Katie launches a Caribbean-wide manhunt, calling on her stoic, steady father-in-law, and Collin, her badass big brother, to help her search air, land, and sea for her husband, who may be in very big trouble indeed.
