Having moved back to her native New Jersey, she spends her mornings commuting to Manhattan for her job at a leading media company - while still happily brainstorming ways to commit murder.

Travellin' Shoes (2017)
(RJ Franklin Mystery, book 1)
V M Burns
"Travellin' Shoes introduces the world of RJ Franklin, an Indiana police detective who returns from leave to look into the murder of his church's new choir director. RJ's investigation takes him--and us--into the places that serve as the backbone of the urban community--the churches, the hair salons and, perhaps most importantly, the dinner table of the beloved local church women who know any- and everything. Throughout it all, Burns flawlessly mixes the best elements of both cozy mystery and police procedural before reaching a pitch-perfect crescendo worthy of a Sunday morning gospel choir."
