Book Description:


It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and civic leader and socialite Chauncey St. Amant has been crowned Rex, King of Carnival. But his day of glory comes to an abrupt and bloody end when a parade-goer dressed as Dolly Parton guns him down.


What’s the perfect killing field for a murderer? A place where he (or maybe she) can learn your secrets from your own mouth and then make friends over coffee. A supposedly “safe” place where anonymity is the norm. The horror who calls himself The Axeman has figured it out and claimed his territory—he’s cherry-picking his victims in the 12-Step programs of New Orleans.


Skip Langdon just happens to be on hand when Ham Brocato, director if New Orleans Jazzfest, is discovered dead on the kitchen floor in the middle of his own party the evening before the Fest. To complicate the already murky case, the victim’s sixteen-year-old blues musician sister has disappeared, and Skip suspects that if the young woman isn’t the murderer, she’s in mortal danger from the person who is.


It’s a chilly November in 1994, and thirty-one-year-old Geoff Kavanagh surreptitiously splits his time between science fiction novels and cyberspace in his parents’ dilapidated, overgrown, uptown New Orleans mansion. Until his mother finds him dead from a suspicious fall off a ladder. Maybe he should never have posted about seeing his father murdered …


Sugar Hebert arrives home from a ten-minute errand to find her husband shot to death and the rest of her family missing—including her daughter Reed, heir apparent to the Hebert restaurant dynasty, and Reed’s eleven-month-old daughter.


Politics makes the strangest bedfellows of all and in New Orleans, a psychopath’s running for mayor. Not just the usual harmless megalomaniac—a murderer and a monster.


Sure, New Orleans is known for corruption, but suddenly the good guys get a break—an honest police chief. And then someone guns him down. When a terrifying organization called The Jury takes out the cop-killer, Detective Skip Langdon’s on the case. And she suspects The Jury’s the brainchild of her old nemesis, self-described preacher Errol Jacomine.


It seems Councilwoman Bebe Fortier has misplaced her equally prominent husband, United Oil VP Russell Fortier. Across town, part-time detective/poet Talba Wallis has a simple wish–to find out what Russell Fortier’s disappearance has to do with her. NOPD Detective Skip Langdon soon senses something big starting to unfold, something a lot bigger than a missing husband.


The Rev. Errol Jacomine is crazy as a fox that just ate a loon and more dangerous than a cell full of serial killers. He’s trying to off Detective Skip Langdon, the New Orleans cop who’s twice smashed his criminal endeavors, yet each time he’s managed to slip away. Now he’s mad.

Love of a Lifetime

Cara Smith can’t wait to put the first half of 1980 behind her and build a new life in the little town of Abundance, Missouri. If she can just avoid questions from that cute guy at the newspaper, no one ever needs to find out about her past. Will Hamlin, editor of the local paper, has some serious questions about the mayor’s new secretary. She’s clearly hiding something—something that could be the big story the newspaper desperately needs to stay afloat. But after Will’s initial queries find nothing, he grows less interested in Cara’s past and more interested in winning her heart with slices of pie and stolen kisses. When a crime is uncovered at city hall just as Will unearths Cara’s secret, the repercussions shatter their romance. Can Cara ever escape her past? Can Will finally find a way to save the paper? And can they learn to place their trust in God and open their hearts to the love of a lifetime?

Love at Sunset Lake

When struggling caterer Tess Palmer inherits her great-aunt’s home at Sunset Lake, Missouri, she thinks she’s found the way to save her business. Selling the property can provide the capital she needs to pay her debts and move to a larger commercial kitchen. Wildlife painter Jack Hamlin, who lives across Sunset Lake, wants the area kept exactly as it is—a place where he can ease his troubled heart. Although he’s drawn to Tess’s honesty and beauty, he’s appalled that she would welcome a deal with a developer, and he vows to stop her. As Tess discovers why Jack is so passionate about protecting the lake, she finds him more and more attractive, and she takes a step past her own emotional pain. But there seems to be no solution to the impasse over the property. As a sale nears, can Jack and Tess trust God—and each other—and finally find a love that will last?

Love and Harmony

For Becky Hamlin, every performance is important, a time for her choir to shine. But no performance has ever mattered as much as the upcoming benefit concert for the local food pantry. This concert is not just about music. It’s a chance to make up for her lapse in judgment last summer, not to mention a shot at her dream job. Seth Williams, former naval officer and the new interim high school principal, has barely unpacked when he realizes that the gorgeous local choir director is the same girl he fell for at church camp years ago. With her in town, he’s more determined than ever to convince the school board to make his position permanent. As the logistics of her concert cause problems with his job, can their renewed love survive?

Love and Roses

Young widow Abby Kincaid treasures the past, both the antiques she sells and her memories of her late husband. When she learns that her hometown plans to sell historic Rose Park, a place central to her marriage, she vows to stop the sale. Nate Redmond, a former Manhattan lawyer, is eager for a fresh start in small-town Missouri. Arranging the sale of outdated Rose Park looks easy, the perfect way to help the town fund the larger recreational space it needs. His role might even impress Abby, the new neighbor he feels so drawn to. But as Nate and Abby clash over the park, obstacles threaten their relationship. Mistakes that Nate had hoped to forget continue to haunt him. Abby faces her failure to forgive. And how can Nate compete with the memory of a war hero? When the park battle brings on a crisis, can they each believe in a God of second chances and a future where their love can grow?
