I've wanted to share a bit about my books and decided that the time is now: Enjoy this synopsis of 'Murder at the Miranar'!
If murder and mayhem were not supposed to be part of the employment package, then AJ certainly got the raw end of the deal.
Augusta Jerusha Burnette, eager to escape the dreaded Burnette Family Reunion – and a broken heart – takes a position at the Miramar Resort, a glamorous hotel located along the Southern California coast. She’s confident that the change of scenery will do her good, but when Ellie Saddler shows up, her tarot cards spelling out a warning, things quickly go from bad to worse.
The Miramar, famous for its freshly baked cookies and elegant rooms, is hiding several secrets within its stylish walls. Located not too far from Baja California, a location infamous for smuggling illegal immigrants into the states, the resort plays host to folks wanting to get away from the pressures of life…and those wanting to escape from a life too miserable to comprehend. Although there have been rumors that the local immigration officials have their eye on the Miramar and other hotels along the coast, there are still those who are willing to chance being caught in exchange for the possibility of a better life.
AJ, it seems, has entered the picture just as things are beginning to heat up. When a body is discovered during a search for a lost child, the web of lies and deceit becomes more tangled, and AJ and Ellie find themselves on the run from a killer. Thankfully, the local police department has assigned one Detective Baird to the case, and sparks of the romantic kind soon begin to fly. Has AJ finally found the one man who will keep both body and soul – not to mention her heart – safe?
From glamorous beaches of Southern California to the border of Mexico, AJ has to find a way to stay one step ahead of the bad guy – and to keep herself and Ellie in the land of the living. With a few surprises along the way (no one is ever who or what they seem to be), she decides that perhaps a family reunion might be the safer choice after all.
