Sinister Secrets

(The fifth book in the Black Rose Mystery series)
A Novella by

After regaining consciousness from an unfortunate encounter with Krestel, the evil witch of the Great Shadow Mountains, Private Investigator Fiona Monreau finds herself dumped in the middle of the woods, awakening with a splitting headache, wiped memory, and only one Manolo Blahnik. And just when she thinks things can’t get worse, she stumbles onto Joel Davis, a former FBI trainee… with a bullet in his head. Unable to get him off her mind, Fiona spends her “recovery” chasing down clues and uncovering a super-secret society where money and greed run like water and secrets are enough to kill for.

Known around the FBI as “Scrapper” for his short temper and aggressive competitiveness, Noah Fox travels to the small, creepy town of Devil’s Den to investigate his comrade’s murder, only to find himself toe-to-toe with his former student and one-time makeout partner, the badass, fearless Fiona Monreau. Sparks instantly fly between them, and when Fiona begins to unravel the sinister group responsible for multiple dead bodies, Noah fears Joel’s murder might not be the only one he’ll have to investigate.

The countdown to the next full moon and Krestel’s demise is ticking, but Fiona has a murder to solve first… before she gets sucked into a dark web of secrets, and this time, never comes back.
