Linda Howard recommends

Sweet as Pie (2021)
(Good Southern Women, book 1)
Alicia Hunter Pace
"I absolutely love Alicia Hunter Pace's books."
thumb
Desperate Girls (2018)
(Wolfe Security, book 1)
Laura Griffin
"Desperate Girls by Laura Griffin is a keeper; I know because I carried it everywhere with me until I’d finished it. It has chills, thrills, action, and romance. The characterization rings true, and the supporting characters are as individual as the main protagonists. I liked it so much I’m buying her backlist."
thumb
Murder Notes (2018)
(Lilah Love, book 1)
Lisa Renee Jones
"Murder Notes is intriguing and edgy. Lilah Love isn’t your usual heroine; she doesn’t hesitate at danger but embraces it, because only then can she see the darkness of the crimes she investigates. The twists and turns will keep you wondering who’s guilty and who isn’t…or are they all guilty?"
