A missing mom and a suspicious death force a reluctant detective out of self-imposed exile in this fast-paced mystery thriller with heart.

Detective John Jordan thought he had put murder investigation behind him for good—his own good. Leaving Atlanta, he returns to Florida in search of the serenity that has so long eluded him.

Until he witnesses the shocking and bizarre death of an inmate in state prison custody and is asked to find a missing mom by her young children. John realizes he can’t run from his true calling any longer. Now he must determine if the suspicious death he witnessed is murder, accident, or suicide and what really happened to Candace Miles on the night she vanished off the face of the earth—even if it costs him his life to do so.

Book Description:

The day Mira James’ family secret became public, the shame crushed her. She fled the small town where everyone knew her business and reinvented herself in the big city, building a life short on friends but long on emotional safety. When she walks in on her bass-playing boyfriend tuning another woman’s instrument, though, the life she’s carefully crafted comes crashing down. She’s that abandoned girl all over again, fleeing to a tiny town very much like the one she’d escaped.

There, she’s shocked to discover a wonderful job as a librarian, great friends, and Johnny, the kind, uber-sexy gardener who seems fated to be her one true love. It’s too bad about the clock ticking on her stay.

That, and the alarming number of unsolved murders that seem to have followed her.

WARNING: Belly laughs, suspense, clumsy romance, and a good-hearted crew dying to become your new best friends lie within these pages. Do not open until you’re ready to escape into a laugh-out-loud, page-turning adventure!

This convenient bundle includes these four, bingeworthy, full-length novels, which are the first four books in the series:

May Day
June Bug
Knee High by the Fourth of July
August Moon

Book Description:

Iris Holder has no intention of making a new life on Lilac Bay Island. She just needs a little time to work out a comeback plan and then she’ll be right back to taking over the real estate world in the big city. Getting fired and losing her home were a setback, sure, but there’s no reason to think she’ll need more than a few weeks to get herself together. After all, Lilac Bay isn’t exactly her favorite place. And the feeling is mutual—at least when it comes to her ex, David Jenkins. Getting involved with the quirky islanders is not on her agenda, no matter how many fish fries and drunken book clubs her cousin Posey drags her to. She definitely doesn’t have time to help reopen the family restaurant. And mending fences with David, her first love, is absolutely out of the question—even if that means ignoring the spark that’s growing between them. But the more time Iris spends on Lilac Bay, the harder it is to leave. She’s getting closer with David, getting closer with her family, and suddenly she’s not so sure her old life was as perfect as she always believed it to be. Maybe she’s actually looking for something new, for something more. Maybe she’s looking for love. And maybe that love is right in front of her.
