PRETTY FLY, Book 6, Falcon's Bend Series with Chris Spindler
Mystery/Police Procedural
Available in paperback and electronic formats

Falcon's Bend is a small, sleepy town in Wisconsin that owns more taverns than churches, but fills both on the appropriate days. Teenagers talk of escape from the one-horse town because nothing ever seems to happen. But, even here in the Heartland, police investigators Pete Shasta, Danny Vincent and Amber Carfi fight a never-ending battle to keep their beloved families and hometown safe and sound.

Will you walk in, pretty fly…and will you walk out once you’re trapped inside the spider’s lair?

Shayna Vincent returns home to Falcon’s Bend after her romance turns disastrous. When she and Gage Keveris became a creative design team at the prestigious Bethany Advertising Agency, she’d had no idea he was married to a career-ambitious woman who traveled more often than she came home. Over the last year and half, Shayna found herself falling in love with her partner and friend without a clue what he was hiding. Now that she knows the truth, she can’t bear the pain of being near him when they can’t be together.

While staying with her little brother Danny, a Falcon’s Bend Police Department detective, she meets up with an old crush from high school. Shawn Futrell has been widowed twice, his third wife is missing, and he’s the father of a sixteen-year-old from his first marriage. When Danny finds out his vulnerable sibling has been in contact with Futrell, he tries to put a stop to it by telling her that Shawn’s wives’ deaths were more than a little suspicious—regardless of whether or not the police have been able to find any evidence to pin on him.

But bad boy Shawn is still movie-star gorgeous, and Shayna can’t stop recalling how besotted she was with him as an impressionable teenage girl—one Shawn never took seriously back then but seems intent on making up for lost time now. What pretty fly could resist the invitation of such a seductive spider?

There are no scars like those inflicted in childhood, and no love like your first. Timeless couples Diane Hoffmann and Mikey Lund, Roxanne Hart and Jamie Dubois, Cherish Stephenson and Ty Foxx, and Sapphire Stephenson and William Decker seek out the unconditional love and healing of an angel and the scorching heat of unending passion. Heaven's promise, desire's flame…

Ty Foxx left home when he was a teenager, taking his brother Jeff with him. The horror they’d suffered as children, along with their other three siblings, at their father’s hands has scarred them both. Ty had tried to take care of and shelter his younger brother, eventually becoming a successful photographer, but in the end he couldn’t save him. He hasn’t looked back for so long, he’s stunned when he learns that his father succumbed to an illness that plagued him for years. The threat and terror he posed is over, dead and gone. Even though Ty is filled with self-loathing and fury at the past with the loss of his brother, he knows the time has come for him to go home and face the rest of his family and all he’s been running from in life.
           
Cherish Stephenson owns a flourishing flower shop and mail-order business. The brutal rape that drove her fiancé away when she was in college and left her terrified of getting close to anyone is the only sign that her life isn’t everything and all she intends it to be. When she meets Ty, her employee Darlene’s brother, and the attraction is instantaneous and mutual, Cherish realizes how much she’s missed in her life by being afraid of the shadows of the night. But Ty may be even more broken than she is by the past. Can they heal each other with the light of love, or is the only thing left for both of them to accept living out the rest of their lives alone, wounded, and scared of the dark?
