Editorial Reviews


GRAVE MISGIVINGS, the second book in A Cate Harlow Private Investigation, was highly anticipated. I am happy to say it was worth the wait.  The intrepid Cate Harlow has a new client and a new adversary. A stunningly beautiful woman named Jennifer Brooks-Warren needs Cate's help to stop an assassin from killing her. The hit is scheduled to take place in two months time on the day Ms. Brooks-Warren turns 25. The first problem Cate encounters is the name of the person who scheduled the hit - none other than Jennifer Brooks-Warren herself! The second problem is that the hit was "taken out" two years ago when her client looked very different. She was poor, tormented for her looks, and deeply depressed. Stealing money from the bar where she worked, she hired a hit man to end her misery.

But a twist of fate changed her life. After an unexpected inheritance gave her hope, her client had extensive cosmetic surgery and began a new life far away from the small, rural Virginia town where she had lived. Since she looked so different and was not the same person she had been, she assumed the hit man had kept her money and forgotten all about her. So apparently does Cate as she tells her client, "It's been two years, Ms. Brooks-Warren. Maybe he's kept the retainer fee and forgotten about you." But it seems he hasn't forgotten; her client is receiving ominous notes and messages, one of which states: "25 is special. Can't wait until your birthday!" This hit man, known as The Eliminator, has every intention of completing the job for which he was hired. Fantastic thriller! Brooke Elliott, Miami Herald

From the Author

GRAVE MISGIVINGS is the second book in A Cate Harlow Private Investigation and I am already being asked about book number 3. Don't worry, it's coming along and is scheduled to be published in Summer, 2016. I am happy to say that 5% of all sales generated from GRAVE MISGIVINGS, and all my books, allows me to make generous contributions to Shelters With Heart, safe havens for victims of domestic violence and their pets, and to St. Jude Thanks and Giving. Your purchase of any of my print books or ebooks is helping those in need; help others and enjoy a good book. 
My character of Cate Harlow is  very good at what she does; she's tough, relentless, and goes by a strong "gut instinct". At the same time, she is also very human. She's involved with two men, her ex-husband NYC homicide detective Will Benigni who can't understand why the two of them can't get back together, and her current love interest, the city's top-notch, Medical Examiner, Giles Barrett.
Cate's loyal to her best friend, upper class "lady-of-the evening", Melissa, gives twenty dollars a week to Bo the neighborhood homeless man in the hopes that he'll buy food along with his beer, and allows herself to be slightly mothered by her part-time secretary, the prim and proper, former teacher, Myrtle Goldberg Tuttle. I created a strong woman private investigator with a wry sense of humor who plays tennis to alleviate the stress in her job. Whacking that ball against the tennis wall gives her focus!

This series is fun to write. I loved creating the characters of Cate and company and all will be featured prominently in the Cate Harlow Private Investigation series. I enjoyed writing the dark humor in "Welcome to Hell" and the satire in "No Woman Diets Alone-There's Always a Man Behind Her Eating a Doughnut" but Cate Harlow has been asking to be written for quite some time now.

Cate Harlow will be back in UNREPENTANT: Pray for Us Sinners in Summer, 2016. Until then, I hope you enjoy her new adventure in the thriller, GRAVE MISGIVINGS."
