News you can use! Amazon is offering the Kindle edition of my first book for free (with conditions). If you’ve been curious, this might be the time to check it out. 

Mixed Up with Murder:

Coming in fall 2014! Dani’s at it again. Visiting a small New England town in the height of spring to consult with a college that’s about to receive a humungous gift of money and art, she’s caught off guard by the drowning of the man overseeing the due diligence on the donor and his background. Everyone’s sad but Dani – and her friends back in San Francisco – are too aware of her past brushes with murder to take this tragedy at face value. When she meets the wolfish venture capitalist making the gift, she’s uneasy. Who is Vincent Margoletti and why is he so anxious to give a valuable art collection away?

The King’s Jar Dani O’Rourke, the Devor’s chief fundraiser, is a pro at dealing with wealthy patrons and museum-world politics. Murder, however, is way above her pay grade, and definitely beyond her comfort zone.

” … fresh, fast-paced, and great fun”

“…wickedly funny”

…a riotous read!

…smart and gutsy sleuth.“ A reviewer recently said “readers who like Janet Evanovich will flock to read Dani’s adventures.”
