Overview

Murder blooms in the naturalists' garden.

Reporter Molly Darter is caught between a fence and a naked place when she's ordered to pick up an obituary for her weekly paper. The nudists shock Molly with their claim that Barbara Jean was murdered.

Molly's no cop; besides, she has enough trouble on her plate dealing with her cheating husband, taking care of her precocious son, and waging war on her trampy sister.

Everything changes when revealing photos of her father consorting with Barbara Jean at the produce stand come Molly's way. To protect her father, she noses around in the dead woman's past, uncovering scandalous secrets.

Things heat up further when her estranged husband's undercover drug ring investigation collides with her murder probe. Only one thing's for certain. The killer is watching every move Molly makes.

Her debut release, House of Lies, won Best Romantic Suspense in the 2007 National Readers Choice Awards. Her upcoming romantic suspense, Hot Water, will release in July 2013. She was nominated for the Silver Falchion Award and finaled in the Beacon writing contest with Muddy Waters.
