September 20, 2017  Red Tide (Aspen Falls Thrillers #1) by Peg Brantley

Sometimes the dead shouldn’t stay buried.

In a new case, Jamie Taylor and her cadaver dog set out to find bodies buried for more than a decade. It’s her calling. It’s what she does when she’s not looking at mortgage loan applications for the local bank. Finding closure for families is what drives her. It’s her way of remembering her mother.

But this time she finds something more.

This standalone story is the first in the Aspen Falls Thriller series. Readers who like suspense and tension mixed in with friendship and dogs will enjoy this book.

“For fans of the serial killer genre, RED TIDE is an engaging, well plotted story with characters you won’t forget.” — L.J. Sellers, author of the best-seller Detective Jackson series

November 15, 2017  Trafficked (A Mex Anderson Novel) by Peg Brantley

Sex trafficking.

Not Thailand. Or the Philippines. Or Russia.

America.

Rich or poor, black or white, girls disappear across this country every day, pulled into the nightmarish world of prostitution and drugs.

Mex Anderson is back, tasked with finding three missing girls before it’s too late. Three girls. Three girls who could live in your town, your neighborhood, or in your own home.

Jayla Imani Thomas is fifteen. A smart kid from a poor part of town who has to fend for herself. Jayla is headed for college and a better life than her mother had.

Alexis Emily Halston is seventeen. Money provides everything she wants or needs except functional parents. Alexis has the world by the tail and she knows it.

Olivia Emma Campbell is twelve. She’s a middle child who dreams of being a veterinarian when she grows up. But right now “Livvy” just wants someone to notice her, maybe even to love her.

Caught up in a cruel system fueled by lust and money, all three young women must find the courage within themselves to survive. And Mex must come to terms with his own loss and face his demons head on—or he might not have the strength to save them.

December 20, 2017  The Inheritance by Rhonda Blackhurst

When Victor and Vivian Forrester meet their unexpected fate on their way home from hosting a charity dinner, it leaves their three estranged adult children with an unexpected fate of their own.

Madison has the perfectly planned life of which her two young children are the center, leaving no room for anything or anyone else, including her husband. Her career as a psychiatrist enables her to validate her self-worth and give her children everything they need. She has made a promise to herself that her children will never be without, vowing to give them the best childhood anyone could ever have.

Maxwell is a successful partner of a law firm, who is as skilled at playing the ladies as he is in the courtroom. He has long since written off his family in order to avoid having to answer to anyone.

Molly is a writer and free spirit who has lost herself in the miry pit of self-pity, claiming her title as black sheep of the family. She tries to drown and numb the pain from years of being misunderstood by her family.

What none of them expect after the shock of their parents’ death is the shock of learning what is in the will their parents carefully constructed, listing what is required of each of them before they can claim their substantial inheritance. Those requirements take them on a journey of self-discovery and change that leads to a much greater wealth than any of them had ever expected.
