Dark Mountain Book 2
When history repeats itself, it doesn’t pay to have a murder in your past …
Julia Taylor did ten years in jail for murder. Now she’s out. All she wants is to build up her design business and figure out where her romance with local cop Dylan Andrews is going. She’s ready for a quiet life, but murder and mayhem won’t let Julia Taylor alone.
First she finds her neighbors dead in an apparent murder-suicide. Then an erratic friend from Julia’s time in prison asks her to help find a sex worker who went missing in suspicious circumstances.
As the body count continues to rise, members of the Russian mafia and an unnerving evangelical church begin to cross Julia’s path. Soon, Julia and Dylan are caught up in a maelstrom that threatens both their love and their lives.
A Dark Mountain Christmas Novella
Murder doesn’t take a holiday!
After ten years in jail, Julia Taylor is about to experience her first Christmas on the outside. Life is good. Her interior design business is growing and she’s happily in love with Dylan, the cop who helped clear her name. When she snags a major commission to redesign an historic house, she’s over the moon, but quickly slams back down to earth when she discovers her new client, dead.
With Dylan investigating and a cast of odd suspects including an ex-spy in her seventies, Julia is reluctantly (well, that’s what she tells herself) drawn into finding out who wanted Vincent Perrin dead. What is it about the house that inspires such greed?
Born and bred in Sydney, Australia, I’m a life long lover of books in all forms but crime fiction in particular. I worked for many years in the New South Wales prison system but decide a tree change was needed so decamped to the beautiful Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. Now I write and work part-time in the community sector, tend my out-of-control garden, and try not to procrastinate too much. You can like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter. Sometimes I play around with Pinterest. I can also be found over at Romantic Suspense Downunder.
