SIX spellbinding stories by seven USA Today Bestselling Authors with characters you'll never forget.

A Cutthroat Business by Jenna Bennett
Everyone has warned new-minted realtor Savannah Martin that real estate is a cutthroat business. But Savannah doesn't think she's supposed to take the warning literally ... until an early morning phone call sends her to an empty house on the 'bad' side of town, where she finds herself standing over the butchered body of a competitor, face to face with the boy her mother always warned her about.

The Ex Who Wouldn't Die by Sally Berneathy
Amanda has been trying for a year to divorce her lying, cheating, scam artist husband, Charley. Then he turns up dead, murdered. Finally they are no longer married! But she is the primary suspect and, as if that isn't bad enough, Charley's ghost shows up in her apartment. He was rejected, kicked back to earth, not allowed to go into the light. Even death did not them part.

A Touch of Ice by L.J. Charles
When Everly Gray touches photographer Mitchell Hunt and sees the image of a dead body, she dives into the murder ESP fingers first. Caught in a web of intrigue, El discovers an aptitude for breaking and entering, the pain of a gunshot wound, and the terror of facing a killer. What she doesn't learn--to keep her fingers to herself.

The Chase by Adrienne Giordano
Hard-driving attorney Jo Pomeroy is as determined as she is sexy--in other words, a major pain in NYPD Sergeant Gabe Townsend's butt. Working together on a high-profile task force charged with busting sales of counterfeit goods has been rocky from the start. Now, she's on the radar of a mysterious smuggler not afraid to use violence to evade the law. At the risk of their lives--and their hearts--Gabe and Jo must find him before he finds them.

The Secret Ingredient by Misty Evans
During a live cooking show in her hometown, celebrity chef Katelynn Karr's father dies in front of millions of viewers, and suspicion falls on Kate when his autopsy reveals he was poisoned. Nick Juno, the boy she left behind and who is now mayor, is the only person who can prove Kate's innocence.

Let Us Prey by Jamie Lee Scott
Mimi Capurro is trying to put her life back together after the sudden death of her husband. Using the skills she learned as a secret service agent, she runs the Gotcha Detective Agency, along with her skilled computer forensics partner Charles Parks. Gotcha specializes in executive protection (bodyguards), and tailing cheating spouses.
Mimi never expects to run into her old college flame Nick, when she takes on an executive protection case for New York Times bestselling author Lauren Silke. But when Lauren's assistant is murdered, the homicide case, along with Mimi, land in Nick's lap. Will Mimi and Nick be able to solve this murder without killing each other first?

A wonderful collection of romance and suspense! I selected this collection because I had already read a couple of the books and figured that if they were a sample of the books in this set it was well worth the purchase. Some of the authors are new to me and I have already purchased the next book in the series. Can't wait to read more. Love all of these authors now! Thanks L.j. Charles and Jenna Bennet for cluing me in!

Read first book in this set-Cutthroat Business and really enjoyed it. I hope the rest are equally good. Cannot believe that you can get a set of 7 mysteries for so little money. Certainly will be buying some of the follow-up books by some of these authors. Really enjoyed Jenna Bennett's Savannah Martin Mystery Book 1!

I really enjoyed half of the books. However I really disliked The Chase because it was nothing but constant sexual tension, and A Touch of Ice and The Throwbacks because the lead character in each was whiny, needy, overly emotional and vacuous. I always finish a book I start and could not wait for them to be done!

Some good, some not so much. Good mix, but really you can't go wrong with a variety of authors for only a buck. The stories are about different unrelated characters, not the same one like another reviewer suggested.
