her before it's too late.
The birds continue on their journey, only to discover their winter home has been destroyed by a hurricane. There's

With the scintillating sensuality and high-voltage thrills that distinguish all of her blockbusters of romantic suspense, Linda Howard grips the imagination and touches the heart as only she can, in her sixth dazzling New York Times bestseller.A talented painter in her early thirties, Paris Sweeney has achieved enviable success: her work sells at an exclusive New York City gallery, and her popularity is at an all-time high. Life is good, and Sweeney, as she prefers to be called, is content.
But lately, Sweeney's dreams -- lush, vivid, and drenched in vibrant hues -- seem to echo a growing restlessness that has taken hold of her. Suddenly, impulsively, Sweeney falls into a night of intense passion with millionaire Richard Worth. Now, the true dangers of her all-consuming urges are about to be revealed where Sweeney least expects it: in her paintings.
After a creative frenzy she can barely recall, Sweeney discovers she has rendered a disturbing image -- a graphic murder scene. Against her better instincts, she returns to the canvas time and again, filling out each chilling detail piece by piece. But when a shattering, real-life murder mirrors her creation, Sweeney falls under suspicion. With every stroke of her brush, she risks incriminating herself with her inexplicable knowledge of a deadly crime. And every desire -- including her hunger for Richard -- is loaded with uncertainty as Sweeney races to unmask a killer.

READER REVIEW: "Valerie and Kit are witty and entertaining characters constantly on the move. This is a well-written mystery that reads along at a bright and cheerful pace with a surprisingly dark twist at the end." --Alle Wells
THIS EBOOK IS FREE TODAY!!
This first book in The Val & Kit Mystery Series introduces Realtor Valerie Pankowski and her best friend since childhood, Kit James. Val, who has just signed her divorce papers and a lease on a new apartment, receives a call from a prospective client, Mavis Woodstock (a vaguely familiar name). Mavis insists she has to sell her house as quickly as possible, but then doesn't keep her scheduled appointment. Kit, whose glamour belies her bold and often brash ways, remembers Mavis from their school days, an unattractive girl who was ignored when she was lucky, ridiculed when she was not. She also remembers Mavis being the only daughter in a large family that was as frugal as it was wealthy. When Val and Kit cannot locate Mavis, they begin an investigation, encountering along the way a little romance, a lot of deception, and more than one unsavory character. Val & Kit and their shenanigans can also be found in No. 2 and No. 3 of The Val & Kit Mystery Series, THE MURDER OF SUSAN REED and DEATH IN DOOR COUNTY.
Rosalind Burgess and Patricia Obermeier Neuman, aka Roz and Patty, met in Minneapolis through mutual friend Lee (a REAL character, in the best sense of the word).
Now a proud and patriotic U.S. citizen and Texan, Roz grew up in London and currently calls Houston home. She has also lived in Germany, Iowa, and Minnesota. When not writing, she works in the airline industry.
Patty spent her childhood and early adulthood moving around the Midwest (Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Indiana), first as a trailing child and then as a trailing spouse (inspiring her first published book, MOVING: THE WHAT, WHEN, WHERE & HOW OF IT). A former reporter and editor, Patty lives with her husband in Door County, Wisconsin. They have three children and twelve grandchildren.
With three books in The Val & Kit Mystery Series, THE DISAPPEARANCE OF MAVIS WOODSTOCK, THE MURDER OF SUSAN REED, and DEATH IN DOOR COUNTY now published, Roz and Patty -- along with characters Val and Kit -- have another mystery up their sleeves (and on their computers). All four women agree that friendship, humor and love are as compelling as solving murders.

When environmental writer Caroline Carlisle sets off to report on endangered sea turtles during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the last thing she expects is to uncover secrets - secrets that threaten to destroy her family, unless she can heal the hurts from a lifetime of lies. To make matters worse, Caroline's love for her late sister's husband, Simon, creates an uproar in a southern family already set on a collision course with its past.
Using real-life events as the backdrop, Trails in the Sand explores the fight to restore balance and peace, in nature and in a family, as both spiral toward disaster. Through it all, the ancient sea turtle serves a reminder that life moves forward despite the best efforts to destroy it.

P.C. Zick has created an intriguing novel based on the BP oil spill and a southern family with a dark and dysfunctional past. While weaving a tale of a family in crisis, the author also gives its reader a look into the disastrous impact the oil spill had on the environment, wildlife and people in the Gulf Coast region of the U.S. It's clear that the author did a lot of research into the accident that not only impacted the environment, but also ended the lives of the men working on the rig that exploded in the Gulf.
In addition, the author did a good job of opening up the lives of a very complex family to the reader. The painful past leads a trail to the complicated future where lives are still impacted by the actions of those long ago. Family ties are strong, even when they are unhealthy.
Overall, this story of a strong dysfunctional family with a secret past in the mist of one of the worst environmental disasters in US history will please many readers of different genres. Worthtaking the time to read.
