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

Meet Sean McKinley and Sara Cain, homicide detectives with the Albany PD. In The Day Job is Murder, however, the partners find their lives changing for the better when they fall in love, get married, and retire from the force. But the McKinleys have quite the talent for attracting death investigations wherever they go—and who are they to refuse satisfying their hunger for justice? In fact, whether getting to the truth means going undercover, off the books, or around the world, they’ll get to the bottom of things…and romance it up along the way.

In this box set, enjoy the first three installments in the McKinley Mysteries novella series and get hooked from the beginning.

 

The Day Job is Murder (A Short Story) (McKinley Mysteries #1)

Romance. Humor. Murder.

 “The Day Job is Murder blends murder and romance along with a side helping of the “Golden Rule” in action, with some good consequences. It’s a sweet, uplifting story with pleasant characters and a happy ending in a bite-sized format.” –Beas Book Nook

Working for the Albany Police Department is murder—not because Sean and Sara are in Homicide but because they can’t be a couple as long as they are partners on the job. Feeling handcuffed, it seems that a romance between them is off the table, but one thing life should have taught them by now is nothing ever stays the same. Well, that and where there’s an intention, there’s a way out. But Sean and Sara never would have seen this one coming…

Vacation is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #2)

This wasn’t in the travel brochure…

 “A cute cozy mystery for the summer! There’s action and romance…The storyline is quick and light—perfect for beach reading!” –Writer Blogger Mom

There’s only so much relaxation two former detectives can handle—even if they’re on their honeymoon. With their recent fall into money, Sean and Sara McKinley should be living it up, enjoying the sun and beaches of Cancun. But heading into their third week of vacation, they’ve had just about enough lying around.

When the husband of a couple they’ve befriended is kidnapped and held for ransom, it has the McKinleys putting their experience to good use. As they set out in the unfamiliar landscape of this Mexican paradise, the investigation will have them risking their lives to stop a killer.

Money is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #3)

It’s in the fine print…

“This is such a great cozy series with so much going on. It’s like being on a ride right along with Sara and Sean and watching as they put the pieces together.” –Community Bookstop

Old Man Quinn left Sean more than his billions—he left him a murder to solve.

Inside the chest given to him from the executor of Quinn’s will, Sean finds a key and explicit instructions that the contents are for his eyes only. Once Sean discovers where the key fits, he finds another letter, this one stating that Quinn wants a closed case reopened. And when Sean looks into the case, he is shocked by who the victim was.

As Sean and his wife, Sara, uncover the clues, they are led from the back rooms of Quinn’s corporation to the streets of New York City, but they will stop at nothing to get to the truth.

Solve more murders with Sean & Sara!

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)

There’s no time for a vote…

 “I just have fallen in love with this series. It just keeps getting better and better and very entertaining. Suspense and a mystery/murder is what keeps me wanting more!” –Books, Dreams, Life

Sean and Sara McKinley’s popularity as a murder-solving duo has gained momentum since they retired from the Albany Police Department. As guests on a local television show, they meet reporter Reanne Mable, the sister-in-law of Albany’s Mayor Davenport. When an introduction is made, it turns out the mayor is looking for a favor from the McKinleys: his daughter has gone missing from her university campus, and he wants them to find her. Only thing is the police are already on the case, and the McKinleys don’t want to step on any toes. With that said, they also know the fate of the girl shouldn’t be up for debate and decide to undertake a covert operation.

But being in politics has brought Davenport his share of enemies, and as Sean and Sara come to realize, bringing Halie home safe may be more difficult than they’d imagined—and fraught with far more danger.

Family is Murder (McKinley Mysteries #5)

If only there was someone to clean up this mess…

 “You know that big smile you wear after you just finish a good book? The one that seems to cement the mood for the rest of the day? Well, that’s what I felt after reading Family is Murder.” –Christine Warner, International bestselling author

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)

Sean and Sara McKinley find more than a bargain this Black Friday…

 “This is the perfect mystery to sink into… Keeps you in suspense and turning the pages until the surprising climax.” –Bixler Reviews

The busiest shopping day of the year should be all about the discounts, but Sean and Sara’s trip to the mall brings them a murder to solve. Though the police think the man purposely took a flying leap from the second level to the concourse, the widow is adamant her husband would never have done that. But it’s Sara’s past connection with the widow that has the McKinleys looking into the matter.

The answers aren’t coming quickly—not with mall security dropping the ball and no seeming motive for murder. If the McKinleys are going to find out the truth, it will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of their friend Sergeant Jimmy Voigt. If they’re lucky, they just might get this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.

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

Jimmy finally takes a Caribbean vacation and a chance on love. It could have been the perfect romantic getaway for Valentine’s Day, but he goes missing. His female companion thinks cupid’s arrow may have missed its mark, but Sean and Sara McKinley know Jimmy would never leave a lady stranded.

The McKinleys hop on their private jet to the tropical paradise of Ocho Rios, Jamaica, determined to find their friend. What they get is one gold coin near where Jimmy was last seen, and their imaginations go wild: did pirates kidnap Jimmy? But all the fanciful conjecture in the world won’t get them any closer to finding him. They need to figure out the motives for anyone who might want to hurt Jimmy—and before it’s too late.

With their client certain that her mother was poisoned through her coffee-of-the-month club, it has them setting out to Williamsburg, Virginia, to visit Tasty Beans headquarters. The problem is their New York PI licenses don’t carry any weight in the state of Virginia, so it forces Sean and Sara to improvise.
