Coke with a Twist (A Mercy Watts Short)
Mercy Watts' P.I. father ropes her into another investigation, this time to find the truth behind a young woman's attack. The case takes her from a dive bar to sorority row to the gutter, and unless she solves it fast, the case will be her last.

A Good Man Gone (Mercy Watts Mysteries Book 1)
It’s summer in St. Louis and Mercy Watts is on vacation from her parents. The great detective and his nosy wife are on a cruise and Mercy thinks she’s off the hook for doing any investigating for them. But when a family friend has a fatal heart attack, Dad has one of his famous feelings and orders Mercy to look into it. Mercy tries not to get sucked in. She really does, but she’s her father’s daughter. Soon Gavin’s death leads to a more grisly one, the death of a bride on her wedding day. Can the two be connected? Was Gavin murdered? Now Mercy can’t stop. You do for family. That’s all there is to it.

Diver Down (Mercy Watts Mysteries Book 2)
A sunny place for shady people. 
Vacations can be murder, especially when you’re Mercy Watts. She’s trying to get away from it all, including her godmother’s lawsuit and a certain situation with the mafia. So she heads to Roatan, Honduras, a place known for scuba diving and lawlessness. Mercy’s on the island less than twenty-four hours when she discovers that she hasn’t gotten away from anything. Her problems hitched a ride and increased tenfold. The deeper she dives, the more dangerous her vacation becomes. She must stop a murder or she’ll be the next on the hit list. 

Double Black Diamond (Mercy Watts Mysteries Book 3)
Commit a crime. Save a child. 
Mercy Watts is off to Colorado for a ski trip with her boyfriend and his parents. She thinks her biggest problem will be pretending to be a normal girlfriend. A girlfriend that doesn’t know how to pick locks and absolutely never gets her face on the national news. But a desperate friend asks a favor that cannot be refused. Mercy figures she can fit it in between trips up the lift and dips in the hot tub. Simple, right? Not quite. Before she has a chance to do much of anything a brutal crime is committed and Mercy becomes a suspect. Before she knows it she’s saddled with a pint-sized partner, a stalker, and a ticking clock. All she has to do is solve a crime in order to commit a crime. A child’s life hangs in the balance. No pressure.

Praise for Jerilyn Dufresne and the Sam Darling Mysteries 

Dufresne has created a charming, nosy, and slightly irreverent character in Samantha Darling, the heroine in Who Killed My Boss?, a fast-paced cozy that takes place in the small town of Quincy, Illinois. 

Beth Amos, author of the Mattie Winston Mystery series (as Annelise Ryan) 

The plot kept me guessing until nearly the end and I am looking forward to reading further adventures! Fun and entertaining read. Highly recommended… well done! 

Anne Kelleher, author of A Once and Future Love and Wickham’s Folly 

Dufresne shows her gift of storytelling as she moves the plot forward, introducing believable characters and a complicated plot. Recommended to everyone who enjoys a well-written, fun, cozy mystery! 

Kimberly Shursen, author of Itsy Bitsy Spider and Hush 


#1 - Who Killed My Boss? 

Moments after hiring Samantha Darling as a therapist, Dr. Burns is murdered. Stunned by his sudden death and desperate to keep the job she just got, Sam vows to find the killer. 

She has two things going for her. The first is that her brother Rob is a cop, and she figures the crime-solving thing has to be genetic. The second is that Sam is a little bit psychic—so finding the culprit should be a snap for her. If only she could tell the difference between her psychic vibes and indigestion…. 

With the help of her landlord and her dog, Sam sets out to solve the murder. Along the way, she spends time with the hot new guy in town and tries not to spend time with the old high school boyfriend who stood her up on prom night. 

Using her vibes, her wit, and her charm, Sam solves the mystery, but not before going in the complete wrong direction more than once. 

#2 - Any Meat In That Soup? 

When a man falls down at Samantha Darling’s feet, she thinks it’s pretty funny. But she stops joking when he turns up dead. 

Social worker and would-be crime-solver Sam is busy trying to unravel the mystery as the death toll keeps mounting. She’s thrilled to be hired by the handsome local PI to work in the ER and investigate. Being paid to snoop makes her feel like she's died and gone to heaven, but Sam's elation quickly evaporates when she finds out that her sister Jen is being investigated for the murders. 

A trio of other suspects, a poisoning scare for her best bud and canine companion Clancy, and the back-and-forth pull of Sam’s attraction to the dreamy Michael and the loyal George keep her unbalanced as she tries to juggle social work, secret sleuthing, and a romantic triangle. As usual, Sam takes her snooping to extraordinary heights. She can’t seem to stop putting her nose where it doesn’t belong. 

And this time… she may have gone too far. 

#3 - Can You Picture This? 

If Sam had known when she knocked over the guy's bicycle that it would put her knee-deep in murder again, she might have thought twice. 

Richie Klingman, the only representative of the “paparazzi” in Quincy, chased Sam down with his camera in an attempt to grab a quick shot of the local celebrity sleuth. But when the flashbulb went off in her face, she went off on him—or on his bike--and down it went, Richie and all. Turns out that one of the photos Richie took caught the precise moment of a murder on film. 

The next thing Sam knows, Richie himself has been stabbed and is in the hospital with a serious chest wound. Sam is stumped. There are no suspects. Instead there are round-the-clock police protecting Sam and her kids, who are home from college for the summer. And there is round-the-clock involvement with her old high school beau George, whom Sam has finally forgiven for standing her up on prom night. 

When at last a suspect emerges, Sam is confronted with her own mortality yet again. In this third book of the Sam Darling mystery series, you'll be wondering whodunit right up until the murderer is fully exposed and the picture finally emerges. 

And a bonus short story! 

Sam's Prom Night Fiasco 

Read about the beginning of Sam's romance with George... and how he ended up with egg on his face. Or is that mud?
