More About the Author
Her newest novel, LIES: SECRETS CAN KILL, is a suspense novel set in 1938, a fascinating time period between the World Wars when independent women who came of age in the Roaring Twenties face tough challenges--especially if they're suspected of murder.
Lovely also has published novels in two series--MARLEY CLARK MYSTERIES and SMART WOMEN, DUMB LUCK romantic thrillers. Her SMART WOMEN, TOUGH LUCK series features content that's a mite steamier than her Marley Clark mysteries. This series follows the adventures of three friend--Nexi Ketts, a forensic accountant, Riley Reid, director of security for a prestigious university, and Kate Johnson, a medical researcher. In DEAD LINE, Nexi is the main character. In DEAD HUNT the spotlight turns on Riley. DEAD CURE will tell Kate's story.
The MARLEY CLARK MYSTERIES offer a main course of thrills coupled with a generous side of humor and romance. Marley, the 52-year-old, kick-ass heroine, is a retired military intelligence officer. In DEAR KILLER, she's working part-time as a security guard on an island in the SC Lowcountry. In NO WAKE ZONE, Marley travels to Spirit Lake/Lake Okoboji, Iowa, where the author spent many wonderful summers with her aunt, uncle and cousins. In WITH NEIGHBORS LIKE THESE, the upcoming third book, Marley returns to the Lowcountry.
DEAR KILLER earned a spot in the finals of the RWA Golden Quill competition for books published in 2011. Harlequin purchased the mass market rights for both DEAR KILLER and NO WAKE ZONE for its Worldwide Mystery imprint.
IN THE WORKS--Lovely is plotting the first four books in a humorous "cozy" mystery series set on a goat cheese farm in the South Carolina Upcountry.
Lovely has served five terms as president of the Upstate South Carolina Chapter of Sisters in Crime and is a volunteer staffer for the Writers' Police Academy. She's also a member of Romance Writers of America (RWA) and International Thriller Writers. Prior to publication, her manuscripts finaled in 15 contests, including RWA's prestigious Golden Heart and Daphne du Maurier competitions, Deadly Ink, Murder in the Grove and Malice Domestic.
A native of Iowa, Linda has called the South home for more than thirty years. She and her husband live beside a lake in the South Carolina Upstate. The author's hobbies include reading, swimming, kayaking, tennis, and gardening.

That distracted me a lot. At least the sex scenes were done tastefully and eliminated unnecessary detail - which was appreciated.
After a few chapters the story became better and kept the suspense until the very end.
The mystery took some interesting twists and there was light romance and light humor woven into it.
I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway and appreciate the opportunity to read and review the books authors and publishers offer. However I will not be adding this book to my library for the above reasons.
Marley is a spunky baby boomer who doesn't go looking for trouble, but trouble seems to find her just the same. A simple vacation to visit her aunt turns into a race against time as Marley tries desperately to prove that her old college friend, Darlene, is innocent of her husband's murder. I really liked the fact that not every move that Marley makes is perfect. She takes several missteps in the course of her investigation that cost her time and evidence. However, this gives No Wake Zone a very realistic feel. Ms. Lovely also makes it clear that Marley isn't superhuman. Even though Marley is strong mentally and physically, sometimes her body fails her. This makes Marley a very vivid and relatable character.
One of my favorite things about Marley is that she doesn't care what anyone else thinks. She lets her internal sense of right and wrong guide her as she navigates through life. She's the kind of woman who is always willing to help a friend, but Marley is not so naïve as to believe her friends are infallible. She's not afraid to ask her friends some tough questions when there are important issues that need to be cleared up. The fact that Marley is willing to stand up to her friends is a true testament to her character.
Aunt May is certainly the most interesting secondary character. She's a tough woman who can be a bit nosy at times, but clearly cares for her friends and family. Aunt May and her antics inject some much needed humor into a story where so many people were being victimized by a killer with a horrendous agenda. I particularly liked the time Aunt May had Marley pick up a certain item of clothing at a department store for her.Read more ›
And here is my review of "No Wake Zone":
"In the nearer term, I think various developments in biotechnology and synthetic biology are quite disconcerting. We are gaining the ability to create designer pathogens, and there are these blueprints of various disease organisms that are in the public domain – you can download the gene sequence for smallpox or the 1918 flu virus from the Internet." -Nick Bostrom
"Jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire." – Solomon Ibn Gabirol
Marley is more than ready for a vacation. After her adventures in "Dear Killer", the first in the Marley Clark mystery series, going home to visit her 79-year-old feisty aunt May and her much-loved cousin Ross in small-town Iowa seems just the thing to relax. Boy, has Marley got it wrong.
Volunteering at the last-minute to waitress for Cousin Ross on his double-decker excursion boat, “The Queen”, Marley is surprised to find that the wedding reception for local billionaire Jake Olsen is to celebrate his marriage to her best friend from college, Darlene Sherbert. But the surprises don’t stop there as Marley witnesses Jake flying over the stern of the Queen and into the icy Okoboji lake waters. Diving to the rescue Marley, a 52-year-old retired Army colonel, finds herself not thanked for her attempted rescue, but instead relegated to leading the suspect list. What’s a retired Army intelligence officer to do, but investigate?Read more ›
