A Cutthroat Business (Savannah Martin Mystery)
Romantic thriller

Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn’t think she’s supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the ‘bad’ side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.

Rafe Collier is six feet three inches of testosterone and trouble; tall, dark, and dangerous, with a murky past and no future—not the kind of guy a perfect Southern Belle should want to tangle with. In any way. But wherever Savannah turns, there he is, and making no bones about what he wants from her.

Now Savannah must figure out who killed real estate queen Brenda Puckett, make a success of her new career, and avoid getting killed—or kissed—by Rafe, all before the money in her savings account runs out and she has to go back to selling make-up at the mall.

The Wretched of Muirwood
Young teen to adult

**My opinion. Great trilogy, strong female lead, with a great twist of fantasy with historical fiction and adventure.

Imagine a world where words are so precious they are only etched in gold, and only the privileged are allowed to learn how to read. Muirwood Abbey is one of the few places where learners are taught to read and engrave, and thirteen year-old Lia wants nothing more than to learn both of these skills—yet she is a wretched, an orphan, and doomed to remain in the Aldermaston’s kitchen, forbidden to read and subject to his authority. Her future is destined for preparing recipes in a privileged household until, unexpectedly, a mysterious knight-maston abandons the wounded squire Colvin at the Aldermaston’s kitchen in the middle of the night. Soon after, Sheriff Almaguer comes hunting for Colvin, and Lia is thrust into the greatest adventure of her life as she and the squire are forced into a partnership that brings her closer to her dream—and Colvin closer to his fear of dying on the battlefield. The Wretched of Muirwood is the first book of the Muirwood Trilogy.

Galligan's Edge (The Torrodil Series)
The Secret of Galligan's Edge
Young Teen & up

I'm not crazy. And the story I tell you is the absolute truth, as insane as it may seem. It all started with Ree Galligan, my best friend. You don't know Ree. Heck, nobody knows Ree. She's one of the iciest girls this side of the Frozen Isles. Big brown eyes. Humongous hair. Rather shiv you in the kidneys than talk about her feelings.

Anyway, Ree decided to commit a rather spectacular life implosion. I had to see to the needs and whims of a stable's worth of fat Molvington ponies, so excuse me for not being there to stop her.
Galligan's Edge is my account of the aforementioned life implosion*. Just promise me this: you won't tell anyone about Edge. You will forget this story. If someone brings it up after Friday lesson at Old Haven Ettiquettery, you will flick your hair casually to one side and point out that it's absolutely piddling it down outside.

If Ree Galligan ever found out what I'd written here, it would be my head on a shiny silver platter.

*Things also explode, crack, burn, and get turned to watery slush in an ill-conceived tropical reservoir setting, but to say any more would be spoiling things.

Amazon Description:
Galligan's Edge is an adventure fantasy serial for upper middle-graders and beyond. It follows fourteen-year-old Tommy Bunton and his best friend, Ree Galligan, on their adventures through the epic world of Torrodil.
GE is the length of a novelette, about 15,000 words, and is followed by Galligan's Edge II.
