New Release: JEALOUSY, JITTERBUG & MURDER (A Stacie Maroni Mystery, Book 10)

About the Book: 

A bungled kidnapping, three young women - one killed, and a dance studio

When Stacie Maroni is mistakenly abducted, she fears for the life of the intended victim. The young woman, who worked at the same company as Stacie, soon turns up dead. With the kidnappers afraid Stacie can identify them, threats lurk around every corner. 

Add in the victim’s two friends and a tech company with a dance-oriented employee program. A quick lesson in the jitterbug provides more clues as Stacie navigates the twists and turns of the murder. 

New Release special price, this week only: $0.99 

Read an excerpt from Chapter 1:

Wherever I was, it was dark, cold, and damp, making my skin crawl and my head ache. That might work for mushrooms, not for me. I couldn’t see anything, but sensed someone had blindfolded me. When I tried to remove the blindfold, I realized my hands were tied and for some reason I couldn’t lift them to my face. 

I closed my eyes and visualized my day. It had been a workday and a busy one at that. With our relationship deepening, Detective Michael O’Hare and I traveled to New York to see my dad and his wife, get away from work, and go skiing. Unfortunately, that meant three days of work to catch up on. Nothing out of the ordinary. 

 I remembered talking to Rosie, my administrative assistant, as I left our area and the shock of the cold wind as I ventured outside. I could tell I still had on my puffy coat. I had only the vaguest memory of someone covering my nose and me fighting back. Obviously, I didn’t win that fight. My dog, Jasper, came to mind, and I hoped somebody figured out I was missing. 

A door slammed and I froze.
