book cover The Scent of Murder

THE SCENT OF MURDER (2019): The way Jazz Ramsey figures it, life is pretty good. She’s thirty-five years old and owns her own home in one of Cleveland’s most diverse, artsy, and interesting neighborhoods. She has a job she likes as an administrative assistant at an all-girls school, and a volunteer interest she’s passionate about—Jazz is a cadaver dog handler.

 Jazz is working with Luther, a cadaver dog in training. Luther is still learning cadaver work, so Jazz is putting him through his paces at an abandoned building that will soon be turned into pricey condos. When Luther signals a find, Jazz is stunned to see the body of a young woman who is dressed in black and wearing the kind of make-up and jewelry that Jazz used to see on the Goth kids back in high school.

 She’s even more shocked when she realizes that beneath the tattoos and the piercings and all that pale make up is a familiar face.

 The lead detective on the case is an old lover, and the murdered woman is an old student. Jazz finds herself sucked into the case, obsessed with learning the truth

book cover Italian Iced

ITALIAN ICED (2018): When Laurel Inwood features Italian cuisine on the Terminal at the Tracks menu, she knows she’ll need to stock the shelves, the fridge, and the freezer with plenty of wonderful delicacies. She just never expected one of them to be her former employer, Hollywood superstar Meghan Cohan.

 And one day, when Laurel is at the restaurant early to get ready for the regular rush of customers, that’s exactly what she finds—Meghan dead in the Terminal freezer.

 What’s a Hollywood A-lister doing in Hubbard, Ohio?

 For Laurel, that’s the real question, because the first question she’d ask in any other murder investigation—who would want the victim dead?—seems pretty much a no-brainer in this case.

 Who would want Meghan dead?

 Just about anybody who had ever met her.

book cover Irish Stewed

IRISH STEWED (2016): Laurel Inwood has the gig most other chefs can only dream of…she’s personal chef to a Hollywood mega-star. But when the star gets some unwanted publicity, she blames Laurel. Fired and blackballed by her A-list contacts, Laurel’s at loose ends. That is, until she gets a call from Sophie Charnowski in Hubbard, Ohio. Sophie is the sister of the woman who was once Laurel’s foster mother, and she’s having surgery. She needs Laurel’s help running her restaurant.

 Laurel arrives expecting the elegant restaurant she’s seen in photos Sophie has shown her. Instead, she finds herself at Sophie’s Terminal at the Tracks, a meat-and-potatoes joint housed in an old train station. The neighborhood is being gentrified, and the Terminal is going to be left in the dust if Laurel doesn’t come up with a way to attract attention. When she decides to spice things up by adding food specials that focus on world cuisine, Laurel hits pay dirt. Too bad murder and a good meal don’t mix, no matter what kind of ethnic food is being served.
