Meet the Author

Hello! And thanks for checking out my books! I've written two mystery novels so far. My first, Dead Locked, is about Imogen Bell who works for a team of underwater archaeologists and ends up embroiled in a deadly treasure hunt. My second mystery, The Jester's Apprentice, is about Philippa, a woman caught between her new husband Edric and his smoky past - and hers.I've always loved mysteries, even in elementary school. My mother raised me on TV show reruns like Murder, She Wrote, Matlock, and Magnum, P.I, and later I picked up her Agatha Christie addiction.However, sometimes I just want a hot (but intelligent) guy and a strong woman bantering for pages. Or a gripping action sequence. Or some fun sci-fi/fantasy elements. And sometimes I want it all in the same book. So with mystery as the backbone of my stories, I blend in romance, action, adventure, and soon sci-fi to keep it fresh and exciting.Why should you take a chance on my books? Well, I write what I'm passionate about, and I'm passionate about people and mysteries. I make my characters passionate too: about each other, about what they're hunting, fixing, or piecing together. Above all, I want my readers to have fun, and leave happy!Enjoy!Amy

    Agree with dull and boring

    Nether twin is likeable and their bikering does nothing for story. In fact the whole book seems to be a fast chapter an hour muchlike the old so much a word. Is this one of those series writing mills? Pagecounter

    I really liked this light hearted mystery.

    I wish i could rate this free, 180 page mystery/ romance 4 1/2 stars. It deserves it. The book is a bit better then average, yet has a few flaws to keep it from a five and very few free books get a five from me, because of editing, too much detailed sex, gore or the absence of a decent conclusion. This is the first book in a series. I enjoyed it very much. There isn't any sex, cursing, religion, and only moderate violence. Even the murder details are rather mild. It can not be classified as suspense or thriller and just barely made murder mystery. It is a pretty tame read.The plot was good, but all the bouncing back and forth from past to present got old fast. I really liked all the characters, except for Lily, as she seemed like a cry baby to me. I wanted to slap some sense into her conceited, selfish, immature head. Whodunit took a while to figure out and since whydunit was dependent on whodunit, in this case, that took even longer. So, all in all, this a fun satisfying read. There were misspelled words. Left out or added punctuation, and sometimes past and present tense were confused. This was a chick book. For ages 16 and up. A nice, clean, read. I have come to believe the word, smirking, is the word du jour, as it seems to be present in almost every book I have read in the last few months. I find it irksome.

    Cute little book

    To me it was more romance than mystery, but I would read another one by this author

    This is the first book in a new series by Amy Saunders called the Belinda and Bennett Mysteries. As with most books that start a series, we are introduced to the characters and get a start on their back story. 




    We are introduced to Belinda and her older-by-1-minute twin brother Kyle, when Belinda returns to the family home in Portside, Rhode Island to open a cupcake boutique and pack up and supervisor the renovation of the family house while her parents are on a tour of Europe. Later that night, during the after-party of their 10 year class reunion, is where Belinda and Bennett meet for the first time. Bennett Tate is the owner of a private security firm handling the after-party. Bennett is a former police officer, private investigator and has issues with rich women.




    While at the party and searching for a restroom, Belinda overhears two former classmates, Jeff and Stellan, talking about the sailing death of one of their mutual friends that happened the summer after graduation. But Bennett spies her on camera and comes to move her along. There is a little mutual attraction, but Bennett is wary of socialites and Belinda is concerned about finding out more information about Mark's death. Soon after, Belinda runs into Jeff and he tells her that he needs to talk to her, that there is no one else he can trust. They make arrangements to meet the next day. But that meeting never happens, because Jeff is found dead at the bottom of the cliff later that night. 




    The officer sent to investigates the death, Jonas Parker, is a former partner of Bennett. Jonas finds out about Belinda's little excursion and eavesdropping, and enjoys Bennett's unwanted interest in Belinda. During the investigation, it is revealed that Kyle had a run in with Jeff and is soon arrested for Jeff's murder. Jonas knows that Belinda may know more than she is saying or even knows that she knows. So Jonas hints to Bennett that he should get closer to Belinda and find out more information about what is going on. Little do they know that Belinda has decided to investigate this herself, because she doesn't believe that Kyle is a murderer. As the story progresses and Belinda starts searching for clues, long held secrets are revealed.




    This was overall a good book. There were a couple of spots that I was a little confused and it threw me out of the story. Like when Kyle is arrested for the murder of Jeff and taken in, then a couple of scenes later he is out and talking with Belinda. It was never mentioned why he was released. Was he out on bail or what? Then occasionally when the POV would change from Belinda to Bennett, the story line would jump and I would be left playing catch up. That said, I really liked the premise. Belinda may have been a socialite, but her family was close knit and seemed much more down to earth. It was like, they had money, but it didn't define them. I could really connect with Belinda. Also, the plot was fresh and the characters fun. I really liked Victoria and can't wait to see more of her and Dan. The romance between Belinda and Bennett is still very young, but you can really see the potential there. Watching it grow is going to be a joy. Like I said, overall a good book. 




    I am giving this book 3 stars on Goodreads. The series has great potential and I can't wait to see where it goes.
