From the Author
Pepper's job as an Insurance Investigator has her traveling around the country to clear up questionable insurance claims. The job itself is not all that perilous. It's the homicides she encounters along the way that seem to get her in hot water or put her life in danger.
The touchstone in Pepper's life is her uncle, Fred Kane, the brother of her Hawaiian mother. He's not always around but watches her back from afar, often surprising her with favors. In For Every Action, he reluctantly gathers information to advance a claims investigation even though it shines an unwelcome spotlight on himself.
Rick Janus, her childhood friend, school buddy, and father of her cherished son, keeps his distance from her job whenever possible. This isn't possible in Deadly As Nature, when his job as a homicide detective forces him to make tough decisions.
Whether the reader thinks of these novels as Cozy or Soft-Boiled (my choice) mystery is the name of the game in this series. Join Pepper as she puzzles out 'whodunit' in diverse cities of the country: Chicago; Green Bay and Door County; Honolulu; Neshoto Junction - an amalgam of my home county; Pawtucket and Boston.
Coming in 2018: Pepper arranges a private cruise of the Hawaiian Islands for her immediate family to celebrate the high school graduation and college plans of her son, Nate, and his cousin, Alika.
