Thanks so much for having me on today to reveal the cover for the fourth Headlines in High Heels Mystery, Dru! DEVIL IN THE DEADLINE was such fun to write: the idea actually came from the body dump location, which my husband found one day on a run along the James River. We went back to scout it out, and the place was so creepy, I knew I had to have a victim turn up there.
Here’s a peek at the jacket copy:
When the Richmond police offer an exclusive in exchange for help with a case, nothing—not even a costume party—stops crime reporter Nichelle Clarke from making Manolo tracks to the crime scene. The hunt leads her to a televangelist’s compound in the Virginia countryside where the Reverend may be more interested in fat stacks of cash than he is saving wayward souls.
With two sexy guys tangled up in Nichelle’s story—and in her heart—work and love are on a crash course for disaster. Pressure pours in from every corner, including a faceless new competitor that means the deadline is always five minutes ago. As secrets threaten and the truth becomes her lifeline, Nichelle must unmask the killer and nail down the story before she’s snared in the carefully-constructed web.
DEVIL IN THE DEADLINE will be on sale everywhere January 6, 2015.
