Friday - Some blurbs of books by Janet Lane Walters
Since I was out of computer reach most of yesterday and today, I didn't ask anyone to do a 2 day sting here so I thought I'd share some blurbs of books that are mine. I'll do the same tomorrow.
Murder and Mint Tea Katherine Miller has retired from two careers, one as a nurse and the other as a church organist. Though she has no desire for a third career, she may be forced to become a detective. Her latest tenant has brought trouble to the neighborhood. When Rachel's body is found in Katherine's garden she recognizes the murder weapon and knows any of her near and dear could be the killer. She refuses to accept that a friend or relative could be a killer and seeks to find the culprit.
Code Blue - the medical suspense Code Blue by Janet Lane Walters, published by Books We Love and previously published as Obsessions, nurse Susan finds the body of the hospital’s “gossip queen” in the orthopedic storage room. She doesn’t realize this is the first of a series of murders involving her colleagues or that her life is in danger. She is a widow and is exploring a new romantic relationship that promises love but she fears the man she is falling for is as controlling as her dead husband. The arrival of courtship gifts, at first, seen as innocuous soon takes on a sinister note.
A Surprising Seduction - Tony Carlin learns what making an assumption makes him. Lauren Grant has made her own assumptions. The deaths of his brother and her sister bring them together to become guardians to 10 month old Jamie. He bases his view of her on their first and only meeting 4 years ago. Lauren was a teenage runaway who traveled across the country to find her sister. Back then she had nose and lip rings, streaks of green and blue in her blonde hair, and her skirts left little to the imagination. Tony knew what she was. Lauren knew he was a lawyer and a playboy with eyes for every woman but her. The attraction ignored in the past flares to life in the present and turns their worlds spinning out of control. Lauren has a plan. She will finish her BS/Master's degree in Occupational Therapy and find a job. Until then she has no time for a man in her life. Tony likes women and multiple is his choice. His father showed him love was false so he had no desire for a relationship that lasts longer than a night or two. What happens when there's an infant in the mix, especially since his promise to his brother is one Tony refuses to give up. The attraction between them sizzles and draws them into bed. She says no more though the times have been wonderful. Tony realizes he has fallen in love and needs a way to show her he won't derail her plans for her future.
