“When she finds a gangbanger’s body outside Fernglen Galleria, mall cop Emma-Joy “EJ” Ferris is saddened but not involved. Events conspire to draw her in, however, when the Director of Security, Captain Woskowicz, EJ’s boss and nemesis, disappears under mysterious circumstances and his three ex-wives come to the mall looking for him. EJ wonders if Captain Woskowicz’s disappearance is connected to the body, and quickly gets swept up into an investigation that includes another death, a missing teen, illegal weapons sales, suspicious behavior from the ex-wives, and Grandpa Atherton masquerading as the Easter Bunny to get a line on the perps.”

“Wicked Eddies is the second book in the RM Outdoor Adventures series.
Fly fishing is dangerous? River ranger Mandy Tanner had no idea until days before a huge tournament in Salida, Colorado. True, the Arkansas River can be a man-eater, but the rapids weren’t responsible for driving a hatchet into the neck of would-be competitor Howie Abbott―a secretive man who may have been cheating. While casting about for suspects, Mandy seeks clues from Abbott’s family members, including her best friend, bartender Cynthia Abbott. But when Cynthia becomes the prime suspect, Mandy realizes she’s wading into deeper, more hazardous waters than ever.”
