With the brand new year, I’m getting exciting about my new addition to the Secrets of the South Mysteries, Sunset in Old Savannah. This story takes place in the charming city of Savannah and on sunny Tybee Island, both in Georgia. Although this is fourth in the series, each book stands alone in case you haven’t read the first three: Midnight on the Mississippi, What Happened on Beale Street, and Magnolia Moonlight.
Here’s a little bit about the story: In Savannah, everyone has something to hide. Investigative partners and best friends Michael Preston and Elizabeth Kirby are hired by a wealthy socialite to do surveillance on her wayward husband. When the husband turns up dead, the socialite becomes the police’s chief suspect. Mike and Beth must follow the clues through the historic town with more secrets than branches of moss-draped oaks. The duo uncovers a hodgepodge of potential murderers, including a scheming business partner, a resentful mistress, and a ne’er-do-well brother. As praise of their agency gets around, Mike and Beth must hire investigator Kaitlyn Webb to ease the workload. But will ghosts of Kate’s past threaten everyone’s safety before a killer can be put behind bars? I hope you’ll look for Sunset in Old Savannah arriving in stores March 1st from Harvest House in both print and electronic editions.
These days, I’m hard at work on my next mystery which takes place in Charleston, South Carolina. Tracking down a biological sister becomes complicated when a private investigator rents a room above an Italian restaurant where the handsome chef has plenty of enemies. I hope you’ll watch for Night Falls in Charleston coming soon.

Sunset in Old Savannah
In Savannah, Everyone Has Something to Hide
When socialite Evelyn Doyle hires investigative partners and best friends Michael Preston and Elizabeth Kirby to do some routine surveillance on her wayward husband, the detective duo find themselves embroiled in a mystery that leaves them in this beautiful, historic city longer than expected.
Evelyn’s husband turns up dead, leaving her the police chief’s prime target. The investigation reveals a hodgepodge of potential murderers, including a scheming business partner, a resentful mistress, and a ne’er-do-well brother. It’s up to Mike and Beth to follow the trail of secrets that reaches further than the branches of the moss-draped oaks of Savannah.
As praise of the agency gets around town, business is growing for Price Investigations. When Mike and Beth hire Kaitlyn Webb, Savannah’s newest transplant, their workload eases, but will the ghosts of her past threaten everyone’s safety before a killer can be put behind bars? And can Mike and Beth find love as their friendship and faith are put to the test?
