Dark. Raw. Gritty. Blond.
from USA Today bestselling author V. J. Chambers


Ever since blond detective Ivy Stern got herself kicked off the police force for “sexual conduct unbecoming an officer,” she’s been slumming it as a private investigator. But she’s handling the fact her life is in shambles just fine, thank you very much. She manages to get up to open her office by the crack of noon every day, no matter how hungover she is or whose bed she woke up in.

When Miles Pike, head of homicide and her it's-complicated-ex-boyfriend, refers a distraught man to her, Ivy’s ready to get cracking. Her new client is frustrated that the police are treating what he thinks is clearly his sister’s murder as a run-of-the-mill missing persons case.

Well, Ivy’s good with murder. Real good. And this case has her intrigued. There’s no evidence that the victim has been killed, but she’s gone, leaving everything behind from her cell phone to her credit cards. Everything except her bed sheets.

“Not only will this book have your detective skills on alert, but it will have you rooting for Maddy.” —Bookaholic and More Blog

Detective Madison Knight wishes she’d just pulled the trigger and killed the Russian Mafia hit man when she had the chance. But there’s no time machine, no going back. Now’s she’s living in hell, suffering debilitating flashbacks, and not feeling fit to do her job.

But when the suspicious death of a sixty-eight-year-old woman becomes a murder case, it activates Madison’s sense of duty and compulsion to find justice. What she discovers, though, will shake her faith in humanity and remind her that trusting the wrong person can reap harsh consequences. Madison must reach deep inside to find the strength to keep going. If she doesn’t, the killer will walk free, and she’ll risk losing the two things she holds most dear: her badge and her boyfriend.

 SOMETHING OLD…

Anthony Hetheridge, ninth baron of Wellegrave and chief superintendent for New Scotland Yard, will marry Kate Wakefield in three weeks. It’s inevitable–the invitations are out, the flowers are ordered, the cake is chosen. But murder waits for no man, and no wedding.

 SOMETHING NEW…

In London’s prestigious West End, a disgraced CEO has been murdered at Hotel Nonpareil, an exclusive destination. No one, it seems, liked Michael Martin Hughes. Not his estranged wife, Thora, or his defiant son, Griffin. Not Hotel Nonpareil’s manager, its head of security, or perhaps even the other two women in Hughes’s life: his future bride, Arianna, or his secret girlfriend, Riley. Still more ominously, before Hughes died, he incurred the wrath of a potentially more unforgiving foe: Sir Duncan Godington, longtime nemesis of both CS Hetheridge and DS Deepal “Paul” Bhar.

SOMETHING BORROWED…

For the first time, CS Hetheridge, Kate and Bhar find themselves under tremendous pressure to uncover the killer in the shortest time frame ever. Has Scotland Yard, not to mention Downing Street, lost confidence in Hetheridge? Will the murder conviction rest on hard forensic evidence, a mountain of circumstantial details, or an impulsive theft?

Return to the world of Ice Blue and Blue Murder in Something Blue, the third mystery in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series.

The author would like to thank all her readers for their loyalty, patience, and kind words. The two questions new readers always ask are, "Will there be more Hetheridge--'Blue'--books?" and "What else have you written?"

Regarding question one, will there be more Lord & Lady Hetheridge ("Blue") books, the answer is yes. When asked when she plans to end the series, she replied, "Never." She is already at work on book #5, Blue Blooded.

Regarding question two, what else has she written, please try the Dr. Benjamin Bones cozy mystery series. Set in wartime England beginning in September 1939, this nostalgic, romantic series follows the amateur sleuthing of Dr. Bones, a native Londoner, in his adopted Cornish village, Birdswing. Book #1, Marriage Can Be Murder, and book #2, Divorce Can Be Deadly, are available now. Also available is Dr. Bones and the Christmas Wish, a charming novella about love lost and love found.
