“Madison is a kick-ass detective who was fearless, strong-willed, and tenacious.”
–Totally Addicted to Reading

This Christmas, murder doesn’t take a holiday…

Detective Madison Knight should have ignored her phone when it rang on Christmas Eve. Now she is spending her holiday dealing with her least favorite thing: a bloody murder scene.

Claire Reeves had it all—looks, sex appeal, and business savvy. But it seems that one of those things has caught up with her. Now, Madison and her partner are digging through the victim’s personal life, but the more they dig, the more people they find who had motive to kill her.

All the while, Madison is battling with a touch of the holiday blues, and the man she’s dating isn’t making things any easier. With the status of their relationship up in the air, it’s affecting her focus on the investigation. And if that wasn’t enough, tack on being the only female detective in the Major Crimes division and reporting to a sergeant who thinks less of her because she is a woman. Not that he’d say so in as many words.

But despite the odds, Madison is determined to prove herself by finding Claire’s killer and, more importantly, making sure justice is served.

“An exciting, action-packed, edge-of-your-seat adventure that constantly has us in suspense... Arnold has written an amazing story, describing everything in detail, giving us a complete picture of Egypt dig sties, heat, desert, underground tombs, mummies, tunnels, snakes, and all kinds of long lost treasures. I loved Matthew, Alex, Robyn and Cal, and the villains in the story were very well done.  I look forward to more from the Matthew Connor Adventure series. Carolyn Arnold has created another winner.”

–The Reading Café

Readers will need to hold on to their hats for this follow-up to City of Gold, which reviewers described as “a fast-paced action adventure” that is “akin to an Indiana Jones story set in modern times.” Now, the second in the series promises to bring much of the same excitement! Join archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor and his friends as they go after the Emerald Tablets to save the world in The Secret of the Lost Pharaoh.


In Egypt’s Western Desert lies the tomb of an unnamed pharaoh that hides a secret so powerful, it could destroy the world as we know it.

Archaeologist and adventurer Matthew Connor has made a career of finding legends the world has all but forgotten. Though there’s one in particular that has fascinated him for years—the Emerald Tablets. Myth says that they possess the knowledge of the universe, allowing humankind to traverse Heaven and Earth, and have the power to bestow wealth and wisdom upon whoever possesses them. But if they fall into evil hands, it could cause a global disaster.

So when a former colleague stumbles across an ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic map that promises to lead to a pharaoh’s tomb and the Emerald Tablets, there’s no way he’s turning down her invitation to join the dig. He only has one stipulation: his best friends Robyn Garcia and Cal Myers come with him.

The road ahead isn’t going to be an easy one, and their shared dream of recovering the Emerald Tablets is being crushed at every turn. And just when they think it’s all over, they learn there are a few clues they have overlooked. But they’re no longer the only ones searching for the Tablets. Now, the fate of the world hangs in the balance, and soon they’ll find out that when it comes to hunting legends, they can’t trust anyone.

 Romance. Humor. Murder. It’s all here!

Meet Sean and Sara McKinley—former homicide detectives with a talent for attracting death investigations wherever they go. And they may as well stick with what they’re good at. Whether that means going undercover, off the books, and around the world, they’ll get to the bottom of things…and romance it up along the way.

In this box set, enjoy novellas 4, 5, and 6 in the McKinley Mysteries series.

Politics is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #4)

“An entertaining and fast read, making you want to read more.”
–My Train of Thoughts

There’s no time for a vote…

Sean and Sara’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany PD. But it’s not until a local television interview in which they meet Reanne Mable that they end up finding themselves involved with a truly high-profile investigation.

Reanne is the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport, and his daughter, Halie, has gone missing from her university campus. With his desire to keep the matter out of the media spotlight, Davenport turns to Sean and Sara to find her. But with the police already investigating the matter, taking this case would pit them against their friends from the police department, including their former sergeant Jimmy Voigt.

As time goes on, though, the fate of the girl is not up for debate, and the McKinleys set out to discover what really happened. With the mayor taking the heat for a recently passed zoning bylaw, maybe an enraged small-business owner is behind Halie’s disappearance. Or did she simply grow tired of living in her father’s limelight and run away?

To get the answers, Sean and Sara will need to use all the resources at their disposal and may have to call upon their good friend Jimmy for help.

Family is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #5)

“An entertaining and fast read.”
–In a Small Compass

If only there was someone to clean up this mess…

Sean and Sara McKinley put out an ad for a maid, never expecting Sara’s birth mother to apply. Or at least that’s who the woman is claiming to be. While Sean is suspicious of the woman’s true identity and her motives, Sara opens her heart to the woman. But when a dead body turns up soon after Sara’s supposed mother takes off without so much as a goodbye, they both must question the truth.

Could they have welcomed a killer into their home without even knowing it?

Shopping is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #6)

“This is the perfect mystery to sink into and get away from the stress of shopping and the other holiday season activities! I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!”
–Bixler Reviews

This year, the McKinleys find more than a bargain…

Black Friday should be all about shopping and discounts, but when Sean and Sara only have a few more items left to buy, screams fill the mall—and for good reason. A man has fallen to his death from the second level. But what exactly happened isn’t as straightforward.

Sean and Sara normally would leave this matter to the police, but they quickly discover the man’s wife was a childhood friend of Sara’s. And while the police are leaning toward the conclusion that the man intentionally took the leap, the widow is adamant her husband never would have killed himself. 

Despite the fact there is an unresolved past between the friends, Sara can’t turn her back on the woman now. But as the McKinleys investigate, the answers aren’t coming quickly. Mall security has dropped the ball, and there’s no clear motive for murder. To find out the truth will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of the McKinleys’ friend and former sergeant Jimmy Voigt. And if it all comes together, they just might have this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.
