From USA Today bestselling author Patrice Lyle comes a brand new series...

 

Dr. Piper Meadows heads to the Body, Mind & Spirit Expo expecting to solve health problems, not murder. But her first day starts off wrong when famous psychic Mystic Ming compares her hair to a “dung beetle’s nest” and tries to get her kicked out of the show. But Piper's bad-hair day gets worse when her Aunt Alfa gets in a public scuffle with Mystic Ming, where he accuses her of trying to poison him with her peanut oil-based essential oils. When Mystic Ming drops dead from his serving of killer kung pao laced with peanut oil, it's no surprise that Aunt Alfa is fingered as the prime suspect.

 

Unwilling to let her auntie squander her golden years in prison, Piper orders a set of How To Be a PI flashcards and sets out to find the real killer. Secrets and suspects sprout up faster than wheat grass—including a handsome tattoo artist, Tattoo Tex, who intrigues Piper more than she'd like to admit. But can she trust him? Piper had better solve the case of the killer kung pao before the murderer turns his sights on victim number two...one sleuthing doctor!

 

"Killer Kung Pao is killer fun! Piper and the wacky cast of characters had me giggling throughout the book!"

—Gemma Halliday, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author

Book 2
From USA Today bestselling author Patrice Lyle...

Diamonds are a girl’s best exfoliator.

 

When naturopath and self-proclaimed chocoholic, Dr. Piper Meadows, hosts a spa night for the launch of the super-exfoliating diamond-dust Carat Cream, she never expects her guests to actually be "drop dead" gorgeous. But that's just what happens when celebrity dermatologist Dr. Jasmine dies after using a jar laced with poison. Suddenly Piper's products are under scrutiny...as is her eccentric, fun-loving Aunt Alfa, who has a history with police and poisonings. Add in an ornery psychic from the "other side," a pampered potbellied pig, and a handful of eclectic suspects, and Piper has her work cut out for her. With her more-delish-than-dark-chocolate-covered-almonds boyfriend, Tattoo Tex, along to help, Piper sets out to find the out the truth as she consults her PI flash cards to catch a killer intent on ridding the world of more than just dead skin cells.

Book 3
From USA Today bestselling author Patrice Lyle...

In the city that never sleeps, Dr. Piper’s search for the perfect wedding dress turns into the search for the perfect murderer. When famous diva Veronica Forks drops dead after eating a bag of Ken’s Killer Kale Chips, suspicion falls on former-mafioso-turned-surfer-dude Ken. According to Piper’s PI flashcards, Ken has the motive (she witnessed a tiff between him and Veronica), the means (the kale chips), and the opportunity (he was at the expo). But Piper's sure the surfer-dude can’t be a killer and, as any good PI knows, the flashcards aren’t always right. Plus Brownie, Piper's pet pot-bellied pig, is addicted to Ken’s Killer Kale Chips, and if Ken’s arrested, Brownie will never snack again! So Piper takes it upon herself to root out the murderer who's adding "killer seasoning" to kale chips before he strikes again.
