Cover Reveal: Murder Comes Ashore available March 2014

You guys. It’s here. Carina Press gave me the okay to share and I’m super very major excited. My debut cozy mystery, Murder by the Seaside, arrived from Carina Press in October 2013. It was an exhilarating and terrifying experience. My stories skirt the edges of traditional “cozy” with lots of humor, hijinks and sexy love interest, but hey, what can I say? I’m a sucker for the guy next door AND unattainable FBI Special Agents in black board shorts. What? Was that too specific? 

I like to drag out a good reveal, so I’ll give you some background on the awesomeness that is Carina’s cover designers. 

THIS is the first cover in my series. Murder by the Seaside and the quick deets about content. Below this….is my new cover!

Armed with a new counseling degree, Patience Price is eager to move back home to Chincoteague Island to help folks with their problems. But she finds the streets awash in more than East Coast charm. There’s been a murder, and Adrian Davis, the town golden boy who once stomped her heart into a zillion pieces, is the main suspect. Now he’s on the run, claiming he’s innocent. Patience finds this…poetic. Not that she holds a grudge.

Adrian’s mom is sure that with her FBI background Patience can find the truth. Yes, she was at the FBI—in human resources. Still, she looks into it, but not everyone is happy with her snooping. Either that, or the welcome wagon has some bold new policies involving drive-by shootings.

Things really heat up when a hunky former coworker, an actual FBI agent, arrives to help. But he may be too late; the quaint island harbors deadly secrets—and Patience is running out of time.



And THIS *drum roll* Is the official Murder Comes Ashore Cover!

It’s glorious. I died. I’m blogging this love from the dead.

Patience Price is just settling into her new life as resident counselor on Chincoteague Island when things take a sudden turn for the worse. A collection of body parts have washed up on shore and suddenly nothing feels safe on the quaint island.

Patience instinctively turns to current crush and FBI special agent Sebastian for help, but former flame Adrian is also on the case, hoping that solving the grisly crime will land him a win in the upcoming mayoral election.

When the body count rises and Patience’s parents are brought in as suspects, Patience is spurred to begin her own investigation. It’s not long before she starts receiving terrifying threats from the killer, and though she’s determined to clear her family’s name, it seems the closer Patience gets to finding answers, the closer she comes to being the killer’s next victim.


So there it is folks. What do you think? A fabulous new cozy mystery cover from Carina Press & Harlequin. Am I a lucky lady today or what?
