Linda Lovely

Dear Killer

Marley Clark, a retired military intelligence officer, works security for a Sea Island community to keep busy. When she finds an islander drowned and bobbing naked amid a potpourri of veggies in a Jacuzzi, the feisty widow’s yawner of a job becomes a deadly battle of wits. Serving as the lead investigator’s liaison, the 52-year-old heroine is startled to discover she’s become the deputy’s target as well—for romance. Yet their steamy attraction doesn’t deter the pair from sorting through a viper’s nest of suspects as the body count grows and the pun-loving killer plans a grizzly epitaph for Marley.
