 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. While solving murders without a badge has worked well for the McKinleys so far, they want to make their hobby official by becoming licensed private investigators. They’re even considering opening their own PI firm. Of course, they’ll still do whatever it takes to solve a case—whether that means going undercover, off the books, or around the world—and you can be certain they’ll be romancing it up along the way.

In this box set, enjoy novellas 7, 8, and 9 from the McKinley Mysteries series.

Christmas is Murder
(McKinley Mysteries #7)

“Everything you could want in a Christmassy novella and more! ... This cozy mystery will bring a smile to your face and is perfect for a quick read to get you in that holiday spirit!”
–Wifetime of Happiness

Mistletoe and mischief…

Albany is the perfect image of a winter wonderland, and this year, Sean and Sara’s friend Jimmy is going to be Santa Claus for the upcoming Christmas parade. The trees and decorations have been selected, and the gifts have been purchased. The season has truly cast its magical spell. That is, until Sean and Sara’s neighbors die in a horrible house fire.

While the fire department ruled holiday-related hazards as the cause, Sara suspects there’s more to it. Her determination to find the truth has her and Sean toeing the line between what’s legal and what’s not.

As they sort out fact from fiction, the McKinleys make the final decision about whether or not to open a private investigation firm.

Valentine’s Day is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #8)

“It was full of adventure and mystery along with some romance. It pulls you in and won’t give up until everyone is safe and sound! Definitely a great cozy series!”
–Community Bookstop

Cupid’s arrow may have missed its mark…
It’s taken a long time and a lot of convincing, but Jimmy finally takes a vacation—and a chance on love—only to be abducted. His female companion originally thinks he was having cold feet about their relationship, but Sean and Sara aren’t buying it. Jimmy isn’t the type to just up and disappear, let alone leave a lady stranded.

Setting out on their private jet, Sean and Sara head to the tropical paradise of Ocho Rios, Jamaica, with sightseeing as the last thing on their minds. With a gold coin being their initial clue to finding Jimmy’s kidnapper—and the lack of any other real leads—Sean and Sara speculate about the involvement of pirates.

Yet as the hours pass and there’s no word from Jimmy’s captors, Sean and Sara will need to figure out their real motive before it’s too late. With help from their friend Adam back in Albany, the pieces begin to come together. And not a moment too soon.

Coffee is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #9)

“This book was full of adventure and mystery that readers have come to find with this series! Can’t wait to see what is next for the McKinleys.”
–Community Bookstop

A cup a day won’t kill you, but a few might…

It’s their first case as private investigators, and Sean, Sara, and Jimmy are up to their necks in coffee beans trying to find a killer. With their client certain that her mother was poisoned through her Coffee of the Month club, they find themselves in Williamsburg, Virginia, at the Tasty Beans headquarters. But instead of approaching matters in traditional fashion, Sean and Sara brew a robust plot and blend Jimmy into the mix, all to get closer to their number-one suspect.

Going undercover at the coffee company, the three of them work to grind out the truth and expose the culprit before anyone else dies.

“This book was amazing from the start. I couldn’t put it down from start to finish.”
–D&T’s Love of Books

Looks aren’t the only things that can be deceiving…

When a sixty-eight-year-old woman is found dead outside the hospital in a wheelchair with an anti-abortion sign strapped to its back, Detective Madison Knight expects it to be an open-and-shut case. On the surface, there are no signs of foul play, but the deeper she digs, the more convoluted the homicide becomes. And when two more bodies appear, including those of a girl just barely old enough to drink and a homeless man, the direct links between the three murders are anything but simple.

Without a consistent MO, Madison doesn’t buy that a serial killer is on the loose, despite the conviction with which her ex-fiancé and fellow detective try to convince their superior. But Madison already has enough to juggle without having to defend her reputation. Debilitating flashbacks of being held hostage by the Russian Mafia mere months before haunt her on an almost daily basis, and the promises she made to herself while in captivity are becoming more and more difficult to keep. Learning to trust is hard enough without constant reminders of what destruction—fatal or otherwise—trusting the wrong person can cause.

Now, as both personal and professional friction within the department mounts, she and her partner, Terry, must figure out what motivation could span generations to cause someone to murder these people. But catching this killer is like grasping at straws, and grabbing the wrong one could mean losing not only her pride but also her boyfriend, her credibility, and her faith in humanity…

“The story runs at a good pace, my fingers kept on flicking those pages, and I was determined to find out who done it before my eyelids started drooping!… Good narrative, enthralling writing…to keep you occupied and guessing at [what comes next]!”
–2 Girls Who Love Books

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue…

At the heart of every human being is the need—and the desire—to be happy. For many, happiness is elusive, but for one killer, it’s something to be created. But it’s not as easy as it seems at first, and this “creator” is determined to get it right at least one more time, no matter how many tries it takes…

It’s been exactly a year since Cheryl Bradley was found dead in her bathtub, dressed in a wedding gown with her ring finger severed. With no leads and no more evidence, the case had gone cold. That is, until another young woman is found murdered and posed in the same fashion.

Now, FBI agent Brandon Fisher and his team have been called in to catch the killer before another innocent life is taken. As Brandon begins to pull at every possible loose thread, the idea that the killer’s method of operation is all that connects the women begins to unravel. This serial killer isn’t just out for blood; this is a murderer on a mission.

But the closer Brandon thinks he’s getting to a resolution, the more evident it is that the killer is losing control and slipping up, making the trail even more difficult for the FBI to follow. And unless Brandon and his team can catch up to the killer, the bloodbath will continue to overflow.
