#CoverReveal ~ The Missing Girls by Carol Wyer @carolewyer @bookouture

I am so excited to be part of the big reveal of The Missing Girls .. I’m such a huge fan of the DI Robyn Carter series .. I can not wait for this! 


An absolutely nail-biting serial killer thriller with a heart-stopping twist (Detective Robyn Carter crime thriller series Book 3)

 
Out on 14th September 2017
 
One girl found dead. Another girl gone…

Long shadows danced on the tin walls. Inside the trunk lay Carrie Miller, wrapped in plastic, arms folded across her ribcage, lips sealed tight forever…

When, a girl’s body is found at a Midlands storage unit, it is too decomposed for Detective Robyn Carter to read the signs left by the killer.

No one knows the woman in blue who rented the unit; her hire van can’t be traced. But as the leads run dry another body is uncovered. This time the killer’s distinctive mark is plain to see, and matching scratches on the first victim’s skeleton make Robyn suspect she’s searching for a serial killer. 

As Robyn closes in on the killer’s shocking hunting ground, another girl goes missing, and this time it’s someone close to her own heart. 

Robyn can’t lose another loved one. Can she find the sickest individual she has ever faced, before it’s too late?

An utterly gripping and darkly compelling detective thriller that will have fans of Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and James Patterson hooked from the very start. You will not guess the ending!

For the first time in sixteen years,
Lara Caphart has returned to her hometown of Whisker Jog, New
Hampshire. She wants to reconnect with her estranged Aunt Fran, who’s
having some difficulty looking after herself—and her eleven cats.
Taking care of a clowder of kitties is easy, but keeping Fran from
being harassed by local bully Theo Barnes is hard. The wealthy
builder has his sights set on Fran’s property, and is determined to
make her an offer she doesn’t dare refuse.
Then Lara spots a blue-eyed ragdoll
cat that she swears is the reincarnation of her beloved Blue, her
childhood pet. Pursuing the feline to the edge of Fran’s yard, she
stumbles upon the body of Theo Barnes, clearly a victim of foul play.
To get her and Fran off the suspect list, Lara finds herself
following the cat’s clues in search of a killer. Is Blue’s ghost
really trying to help her solve a murder, or has Lara inhaled too
much catnip?

bestselling author
Return
to the scandalous secrets of the English countryside’s renowned
getaway for R&R—restoration and romance—in this delightful
series from Maggie Robinson!
After
two months of treatment at Puddling-on-the-Wold, Mary Nicola Mayfield
has shown no improvement, and her condition seems impervious to
rehab. But Nicola is not the typical guest of Gloucestershire’s
destination village for the wealthy and wayward. The trauma of
surviving a horrific train wreck has rendered her mute; her injuries
have healed, but try as she might, she cannot utter a sound. With her
family and fiancé at their wits’ end, Nicola knows Puddling is the
resort—the last resort—that holds any hope for her recovery.
Lord
Jack Ryder—baron, businessman and, some say, mad genius—has gone
from the heights of success to hit rock bottom, after a faulty girder
from his iron foundry caused a dreadful bridge collapse. Nothing has
assuaged his guilt over the passenger train that crashed or the lives
that were destroyed. The stringent regimen at Puddling is not doing
much for his deep depression—until he meets his mysteriously silent
neighbor. Their fiery affair breaks all the rules, but will the
unspoken truth be too hot to handle?

 

 
 
Maggie
Robinson didn’t know she wanted to write until she woke up in the
middle of the night once really annoyed with her husband. Instead of
smothering him with a pillow, she decided to get up and write—to
create the perfect man—at least on a computer screen. Only to
discover that fictional males can be just as resistant to direction
as her husband. The upside is that she’s finally using her English
degree and is still married to her original, imperfect hero. Since
she’s imperfect, too, that makes them a perfect match. Until her
midnight keyboarding, she had been a teacher, librarian, newspaper
reporter, administrative assistant to two non-profits, community
volunteer, and mother of four in seven different states. Now Maggie
can call herself a romance writer in Maine. There’s nothing she
likes better than writing about people who make mistakes, but don’t
let the mistakes make them.

 

 
 
 

 

#CoverReveal ~ Secrets of the Dead by Carol Wyer @bookouture @carolewyer

I’m so excited to reveal Book 2 in the DI Robyn Carter series 🙂 

UK 🇬🇧  Amazon
US 🇺🇸  Amazon

Three murders. Three innocent victims. What secrets did they share with their killer?

A bottle of bubble bath and colourful, plastic boats were scattered in small puddles on the floor. In the bathtub lay Linda Upton, fully-clothed, her lips a shade of blue, and her bloodshot eyes wide open.

When a young mother is found drowned in the bath, clutching a receipt saying ‘all debts paid’, Detective Robyn Carter knows it’s just the beginning of a harrowing case. She recognises the signs of a serial killer, and when a second victim with a receipt is found, her worst fears are confirmed.

With the local press whipping the public into a frenzy, Robyn is under pressure to solve the crime yesterday. But her team can’t find a link between the two bodies, and the cracks are starting to show.

Just when her leads have dried up, Robyn discovers an unsettling clue she thinks could unlock the case. But as she chases across the plush carpets and manicured lawns of the wealthy elite, honing in on the killer’s shocking motive, one of her own is put in terrible danger.

The press call him The Leopard for his stealth, speed and brutality. Can Robyn stop the most twisted killer of her career before it’s too late?

A heart-pounding, toe-curling, one-sitting serial killer thriller that will hook you from the first page till the last.

#CoverReveal ~ The Sweet Life by Sharon Struth @SharonStruth @SDSXXTours

The
Sweet Life
by
Sharon Struth
Genre:
Contemporary Romance
Release
Date: September 19, 2017
 
In
Italy, the best attractions are always off the beaten path . . .
Mamie
Weber doesn’t know why she survived that terrible car accident five
years ago. Physically, she has only a slight reminder—but
emotionally, the pain is still fresh. Deep down she knows her husband
would have wanted her to embrace life again. Now she has an
opportunity to do just that, spending two weeks in Tuscany reviewing
a tour company for her employer’s popular travel guide series. The
warmth of the sun, the centuries-old art, a villa on the Umbrian
border—it could be just the adventure she needs.
But
with adventure comes the unexpected . . . like discovering that her
entire tour group is made up of aging ex-hippies reminiscing about
their Woodstock days. Or finding herself drawn to the guide, Julian,
who is secretly haunted by a tragedy of his own, and seems to
disapprove any time she tries something remotely risky—like an
impromptu scooter ride with a local man.
As
they explore the hilltop towns of Tuscany, Mamie knows that when this
blissful excursion is over, she’ll have to return to reality. But
when you let yourself wander, life can take some interesting detours
. . .

#CoverReveal ~ The Sweetheart Mystery by Cheryl Ann Smith @CherylAnnAuthor @SDSXXTours

THE SWEETHEART MYSTERY
by Cheryl Ann
Smith
Genre: Contemporary Romance

 

Pub
Date: 11/14/2017
 
Harper Jane Evans is so over pro
cheerleading but she’s not quite ready for prison. Good thing she’s
got a badass ex-boyfriend ready to go to bat for her.
Sure, Harper made a few unsavory threats
against her team’s manager—she’d had a few drinks and she
despised the skimpy uniform he expected her to wear. That didn’t
mean she wanted him dead. But when the sleazy dude is found murdered
in his tighty whiteys, Harper is the number one suspect—and former
FBI agent Noah Slade is the one man who can help. Too bad she once
told Noah she never wanted to see him again.
Noah may have done a number on Harper’s heart
all those years ago, but he’s determined to do right by her now.
Yet the fiery beauty isn’t the only demon from his past, which
makes hunting down a murderer by her side . . . complicated—never
mind the powerful attraction still pulsing between them. Good thing
he’s willing to do just about anything to keep from losing Harper
again. And an old love just might bring her a new career—assuming
she can stay out of jail.

Regency novels and one novella with Berkley in her School for Brides
