Death Takes a Ride - Lorena McCourtney



Assistant Private Investigator Cate Kinkaid isn't even on duty this night. She's at H&B Vintage Auto Restorations just to give a new friend a ride. No mayhem involved here, right? Wrong! Two gunshots send her running from the warehouse into the office. One dead man, one wounded man, and a third man in shock because he has a gun in his hand. He's just killed the masked gunman who shot his friend and business partner.

It's an obvious case of self-defense, but there are questions about the dead man and how he knew there would be $30,000 in cash on the premises that night. Is there more going on here than shows on the surface?

There's an attractive ex-trophy-wife. Octavia, a deaf white cat who is a bit of a PI herself. A big, hairy dog named Clancy with a particular affinity for motorcycles. Hunky Mitch Berenski and his motorcycle, and his problem with Cate being a private investigator. And then there are all those bikers.

They all come together in mayhem and mystery in DEATH TAKES A RIDE.

DEATH TAKES A RIDE is available in both print and e-book.

Three Secrets - Lorena McCourtney


Three Secrets, a romance novella, is now available in a fresh new e-book edition.

Blue skies and moonlit sea, seashells and sunkissed beaches! This spot on the Baja coast of Mexico is everything widow Carolyn McAndrews hoped for on her Christmas vacation from snow, cold and responsibilities back in Colorado. No eligible men or romance, her friend had warned, but that was fine with Carolyn.

What she hadn't counted, however, on was a refrigerator that doesn't work and a shower faucet that breaks off in hand while she's lathered with soap. There's supposed to be a generator to make electricity, but Carolyn can't even identify it, much less make any electricity with it. She'd probably turn around and head home, but that's another problem: her van is stuck deep in the sand.

Enter Ward Setlow, a good-looking guy with crisp silver hair, an easy grin, and a fix-it ability to take care of all her problems. A guy who quickly disproves her friend's statement about a lack of romance here. Ward also has an admirable plan to use his fix-it talents to serve the Lord in the coming years. He's in a holding pattern now, just waiting to see to what faraway place the Lord will send him. Carolyn agrees that it's a wonderful plan, but it also makes her see that no matter how deep and unexpectedly powerful the attraction between them is, she has secrets that mean this can never be more than a brief Christmas romance. Although the Lord does work in mysterious ways...

THREE SECRETS is available for Kindle, Nook and Kobo:

Dolled Up To Die


Book #2 in the Cate Kinkaid Files series, "DOLLED UP TO DIE" is available now in both print and e-book form.

When Cate responds to a frantic call about a triple homicide, she finds the victims aren't exactly what she expects. Now she has a new rule to add to those she's learning as an assistant private investigator: always check to find out if the victims actually have human DNA. Because these three do not. Although another victim quickly turns up, and this very dead ex-husband has a full quota of human DNA.

And Cate is off on another rollicking adventure involving a beautiful trophy wife, a woman who claims she can reveal your past lives, and hunky Mitch Berenski, who is having serious doubts about Cate as a PI. Oh yes - there's a killer in there too.
