A Dagger Cuts Deep
It's 1938, and to Deidre Chance, her twin’s murder was at the hand of her twin’s ex-husband. The man’s a wastrel. A no good drunk her sister had been lucky to escape. Now she just had to prove it.
Jackson Montgomery is down to the wire in satisfying the conditions of his late father’s will within the one year constraint: making the island manor house his primary residence; and, marrying within one year of the will’s reading. As the last of the four heirs required to fulfill this ridiculous condition for he and his cousins to receive their rightful inheritance—time is running out.
But someone is bent on murder and he’s at the top of the suspect list. A man with a past as checkered as his does not bode well for proving his innocence. Or convincing his ex-wife’s sister he’s not the man she believes. But, then, she’s hiding secrets of her own.More info →
A Bullet to the Heart
Award Winning Author - Kathy L Wheeler presents book 1 in A Weatherford Sisters Mystery
It’s 1937 on Montgomery Island, Stone City, Clover County, Connecticut, and heiress Josephine Weatherford’s dear, yet, controlling uncle is found dead. No one knows why. In a shocking turn, Victor’s will forces Jo, her sisters, and their cousin to return to the island and maintain the manor house as their primary residence for an entire year! Jo would absolutely refuse, but to do so, puts her sisters’ inheritance at risk. If they are to receive their due, each heir must fulfill the terms of the will. Because besides the fact of making the island their home, they must each marry within one year of the reading of the will.
The childhood horrors Jo suffered had her vowing to never marry. Not even to the man she’s been in love with since she was nine years old.
Sheriff Wyn Smith has his hands full since the island’s benefactor was found murdered. A fate the island had not suffered for over fourteen years. Now, not only has the woman of his heart returned to a home she abhorred growing up, but someone is also trying to kill her. And when news gets out that if the terms of the will aren’t fulfilled, reverting all assets to the island, suddenly everyone is a suspect—including Wyn’s own parents.More info →
