What do boxing and vintage trailers have in common? Meet Raquel AKA Rocky Nelson, a retired single woman with an attitude and love for boxing.


Sisters Rocky and Bridget are enjoying each other's company at a vintage trailerfest until they stumble over a corpse. The dead guy is none other than the local trailer restorer Bridget was overheard threatening to kill. Mounting evidence leads police to focus on Bridget as a person of interest. Desperate to prove her sister innocent of murder, Rocky dons her own deerstalker cap and goes sleuthing until she runs into police detective Thompson who warns her off his case in no uncertain terms. But Rocky is tenacious if not stubborn. Combined with a 78-year-old father who becomes her sidekick, Rocky uses her courage and skills learned in boxing lessons to protect her family and keep from becoming the killer's next victim.


A Deadly Combo is the first book in the Rocky Nelson Boxing Mystery Series – a perfect series for lovers of small town mysteries with a cozy-noir feel, featuring boxing and an amateur sleuth who will stop at nothing to save the lives of those she loves.


"In A DEADLY COMBO, debut author, Karen A. Phillips introduces Rocky Nelson, a feisty and intriguing protagonist. This fast-paced read, filled with twists and turns, will keep readers glued to the pages until they reach the very satisfying ending.

—Cindy Sample, National Bestselling Author of the Laurel McKay Mystery Series


"Rocky Nelson is just the kind of heroine I love: strong, smart, fierce, and yet still vulnerable. She fights inner demons and those who would bring her family down with equal determination while she travels through a northern California landscape brought deftly alive by Phillips."

—Eileen Rendahl, award-winning author


"If you like a mystery with engaging and compelling characters who are wrapped in a storyline that will keep you guessing and sorry when you come to the last chapter—then you'll love A DEADLY COMBO. Phillips has mastered the 'whodunit' craft. Fingers crossed, I hope there's a Book Two."

—R. Franklin James, award winning author
