USA Today Bestselling Series!
Soccer mom, Barbara Marr attracts trouble the way the North Pole attracts short men with odd wardrobe choices. So it�s no surprise when she finds herself in deep doo-doo while attempting to prove the innocence of friend and ex-Mafia goon, Frankie Romano, after he�s arrested for the murder of a famous action movie director.

This third book in the popular Barbara Marr Murder Mystery Series brings Barb out of the suburbs and into the slimy, urban world of bright lights, nightly news, and drive-by shootings. Luckily, she never loses her sense of humor or her ability to befriend some decidedly quirky characters.

Barbara Marr, soccer Mom, wife of an FBI agent, and attractor of dead bodies, does it again. Barbara has a movie review blog, and has been invited to a movie review screening. There she finds her friend, ex-mafia gangster-turned-chef, doing the catering. There she also finds herself under film director, Kurt Baugh, when he falls on her, vomits and dies. YUK! Never one to sit on the sidelines, Barbara enlists her friend, Colt, private eye, to help her snoop. In the meantime, her Mother-in-law has invaded her home, throwing even more zaniness into the mix. As always a good mystery, and lots of fun.

If you’ve ever read The Spellman Files you know how zany things can get when a dysfunctional family intrudes in a murder investigation. Well, the Spellmans have nothing on Barbara Marr. She’s a one-lady adventure (read: disaster waiting to happen) all by herself. In this third Barbara Marr book, Barb is out to save an old friend from the slammer. There’s been a murder and Frankie, the ex-mafia man, is the assumed killer. This is a cozy read, with a full cast of endearing characters: Colt, Howard, the three girls, and Barbara’s mom. Add in Howard’s mom, a bird, a dog and enough criminal characters to provide mad confusion and your head will spin as you follow the improbable trail of clues to the end. The pace is quick and as with the best cozies, it’s a chance to spend time with characters you’ve been waiting to see again.

Darkfang stood among the dead trees, his thick, dark tabby fur swirled in the churning winds. His amber eyes, more of the color of freshly spilled blood twinklied in glee. "Lilywolf and Goldenstripe are afraid of each other...." he growled under his breath. His painstakingly handsome face scarred, but still deadly beautiful twisted in a malacious grin. "Now it is time to train the apprentices," he meowed, a sick type of selfishness slipping into his voice like the poisonous bite of a viper. ``Darkfang

"Why shouldn't I?" Goldenstripe protested, looking to Lilywolf sadly. "I love Velvetstar, and our kits, so much. But I can't go on living without you, knowing your here. I hardly survived the first time we were separated." His gaze went to the ground, to ashamed to look ay her. "I- I understand if you...don't...want to be with me anymore. Between...hurting you physically and...emotionally- like Whitetail. I wouldn't be upset if you didn't. But I still won't leave you here alone. I don't care what else happens,"

Lilywolf stares at Goldenstripe, speechless, and then she gazes down at the moonpool. Was this really happening? Could she really go back? The shecat shakes her head in disbelief and all she can whisper is, "Thank you Goldenstripe." Feeling as though she is in a dream, the tabby puts first one paw in the pool and then another. And then suddenly a frenzied excitment pours through her. She could go home! The shecat launches herself into the pool with a splash. Purring, she calls, "You better be willing to swim now Goldenstripe! Cause that's how we're going home!" Waiting for him to join her, Lilywolf then dives down, swimming next to him until her vision fades and everything turns black.... ~ Lilywolf &hearts
