A collection of stories by Lori Avocato, Chris Holmes, Victoria Houseman, Terry Odell, Teryl Oswald and Susan Sweet
Private investigators must pose as a married couple to solve a crime. Tension of solving the case isn't the only thing building. Will their attraction to each other interfere with their plans to root out a fertility doctor's scam? Harmony Hills Retirement Village - a nice quiet place to spend your days in the sunset of your life. But not if you're friends with Kay Powers, amateur sleuth. Join Kay and her friends in their daily antics-retirement style! A safe home where young women facing childbirth on their own can spend their days. Haven House seemed the perfect place. Until a secret from the owner's past is about to catch up with her and the home suddenly wasn't a haven after all. "Call me when you've got a dead body." Famous words of an over-worked detective trying to get some shut-eye. But when his ex-wife calls and says her friend is missing, all thoughts of sleep evaporate as he rushes to help solve the mysterious disappearance. South Carolina...a state of beauty and tranquility. At least it was for one successful attorney whose life turns upside down when a ghost starts haunting her dreams. When the past and the present collide. A body, a gun, and a little black box... Suicide, homicide or accident? Or had the impossible happened? When life and death were only a heartbeat apart?
