Killing Icarus (2021)
Paul Kemprecos
"Art historian Abi Vickers is an intriguing and refreshing heroine, and Killing Icarus is a fast-paced blend of mystery and suspense set upon the idyllic Cape Cod coast-which leaves me with one question for author Paul Kemprecos: When is the next Abi Vickers book coming out?"
The Sail (2019)
(Great Lakes Saga, book 2)
Landon Beach
"This book has it all. Landon Beach combines the emotional and heartwarming journey between father and son with a taut, tense thriller set in the hauntingly beautiful waters of Lake Superior. Just when you thought it was safe to get back in the water..."
Phoenix Burning (2018)
(Veranda Cruz Mystery, book 2)
Isabella Maldonado
