Everyone's favorite Grandma with a Glock is back for more mystery, murder, and killer recipes!

It’s a new year, and Lottie King is back to old habits: catching killers. She’s opened a shiny new detective agency and reluctantly partners with rival private investigator and greenhorn Oliver T. Figg. But as they hunt down murder suspects, they’re ready to kill…each other. Features five mysteries and Lottie-inspired recipes.

Thin Ice — A chilling murder at an exclusive prep school draws Lottie and Figg into the world of the rich and reckless, but their joint investigation turns frosty when Lottie discovers her new partner has ties to the main suspects.

Sweet Success — Lottie struggles to get her new P.I. business off the ground, while Figg lands the biggest case of his career—the death investigation of a famous romance author murdered at a chocolate festival. They’re doomed to fail…unless they turn to each other for help.

Welcome Interruption — An unexpected visitor drops in and asks for Lottie’s help in catching a different kind of killer. 

Double Dare — The gloves are off, and Lottie and Figg square off to solve the murder of a man who advertised his homicide in the classifieds. Bragging rights and reputations are on the line…not to mention lives.

Fat Chance — When a successful businessman turns up dead at a posh weight loss facility, Lottie and Figg go undercover to investigate a murder that will change their lives.

Author's Note: In every book I've written, at least one minor character jumps off the page and threatens to steal the show. This is what happened with Colorado Springs Homicide Detective Lottie King in my first Apostles thriller, THE BROKEN. Well, it happened again. Oliver T. Figg, the upstart private investigator Lottie met in NEW SHOES, will not shut up. I never thought Lottie, my Grandma with a Glock, would have a partner, especially a young gun without too many street smarts and no clue about police procedures. But Lottie and Figg are turning out to be quite the crime fighting duo. This mystery series is perfect for readers who like clever crime fiction with a strong female protagonist, a dash of humor, and a lot of heart. Bonus: each short story comes with a Lottie-approved recipe. Enjoy!

Author's Note: When asked by readers what book I've written is my favorite, I always say I can't pick a fave. That would be like picking a favorite child. But I will say there's something very special about TANGLED TRUTHS. The mysteries were so clear in my head, and the words raced onto the page. I love the interesting police procedural elements in these stories, and there's even more humor. And for the first time, I threaded a larger mystery across all short stories. My "Grandma with a Glock" mystery series is perfect for readers who like clever crime fiction with a strong female protagonist, a dash of humor, and a lot of heart. Bonus: each short story comes with a Lottie-approved recipe. Enjoy!

Would you risk everything for the man you loved? Even if you knew he’d done something terrible?

 

‘A heart-wrenching and gripping tale. I was hooked from the very first page.’ Write Escape 

Lara’s life looks perfect on the surface. Gorgeous doting husband Massimo, sweet little son Sandro and the perfect home. Lara knows something about Massimo. Something she can’t tell anyone else or everything he has worked so hard for will be destroyed: his job, their reputation, their son. This secret is keeping Lara a prisoner in her marriage. 

Maggie is married to Massimo’s brother Nico and lives with him and her troubled stepdaughter. She knows all of Nico’s darkest secrets – or so she thinks. Then one day she discovers a letter in the attic which reveals a shocking secret about Nico’s first wife. Will Maggie set the record straight or keep silent to protect those she loves? 

For a family held together by lies, the truth will come at a devastating price.
