When Community Association Manager Nicky French received a call about one of her communities in the middle of the night, she knew something serious was up. Finding the developer of Leopard's Pointe impaled on the iron pool gates surrounded by a sea of inflatable pink flamingoes, Nicky was stunned to find bonfires raging and the community rejoicing. William Barrington was the brilliant designer of the upscale multi-use community, yet apparently everyone wanted him dead. And there were too many suspects to name including every single homeowner in the community and his two sons.
For rough and tumble Detective Tyler Deverall to be called to a scene of a murder in the middle of the night was nothing unusual. And given the only thing keeping the owners from partying all night long and celebrating thus hindering his investigation was Nicky French's tough stance, Tyler was intrigued.
As Nicky and Tyler set out to find the murderer, builders begin to drop like flies with each murder becoming more horrific and comical than the last. Set against the backdrop of Chesterfield County, Virginia, enter the realm (and sometimes nightmare) of one very special homeowner's association – where living can be dangerous to your health. As Nicky and Tyler delve into the wild world of spray painted flowers, kinky sex, neon signs and a tango with the mafia, they soon learn that their understanding of humanity will never be the same. Who knew a glue gun could be such an effective murder weapon?

Here's from a 5-Star Review by author Barbara Silkstone:
"In this stunning thriller the reader is taken from the exquisite beauty of Hawaii to the high-rises of Sydney, stopping on the way in Milan. We join investigative reporter Leigh Garner as she pursues a mysterious stolen chalice. Gardner is one of the most likeable of heroines. A "Can Do" gal on a mission.
"I enjoyed getting into the villain's twisted head early on. He comes on like a snake and sheds his skin to reveal a psychopath. Very chilling. This is Dan Brown, but better. A story that just might happen to an average joe or Josephine. Highly Recommended."
Running for her life, ex-FBI agent Elizabeth Ward escapes to Montana with a new identity. She craves peace and solitude, but instead finds handsome rancher Nat Sullivan.
Nat is trying to hold his ailing family together, while struggling to keep the ranch from bankruptcy. The last thing he needs is a beautiful stranger reminding him there is more to life than work.
But Elizabeth isn't what she seems. And when a murderer and rapist track her down to the remote ranch, they all find out about the power of revenge.

Sylvie was a pleaser. She did as her mother pleased, and she did as her fiancé pleased. Then she did as she pleased. Determined to take back her life, she heads to the hills instead of the altar on her wedding day. Coming across a quaint, country inn with an intriguing name, she impulsively checks in. Peopled with an odd assortment of characters, the inn has clearly seen better days; even the regulars have a bit of wear on them. When attractive Alex arrives and is strangely comfortable vacationing among the geriatric set, Sylvie tries to ignore him.
But Alex will not be ignored, pushing her buttons until she admits, if only to herself, that she's falling in love with him. Not until she's hired to manage the inn does she learn he's not the businessman he pretends to be, but a streetwise PI hired by her ex to find her. Adding insult to injury, he buys the inn and asks her to help restore it to its former glory, not an easy task with someone sabotaging their efforts.
Lynn of Red Adept Reviews gave it 5 stars all around saying, "At heart, this was a romance, yet the story never descends into the sappy dialogue and thought processes of a swooning nymphette. Instead, it was the story of a real woman, in a real life, who finds a real relationship that includes a few heart-fluttery moments. Although, even though I am picky about romance in books, I really enjoyed the romance portion of this one."
