Lucky Penny is out in the world!

Today is the day! Lucky Penny, the third book in the Miranda Vaughn Mysteries, is out today! I’m so excited to share this book with you.

Miranda Vaughn is finally getting her life back. Not only does she have a chance for romance with her sexy neighbor, FBI Agent Jake Barnes, but she’s also got a new job… one that’s taking her to a vacation paradise.LuckyPenny-tiny

All she has to do is help her new client get his finances in order so he can buy the Lucky Penny, an abandoned shell of a once-stylish casino on the shores of Lake Tahoe. But the nice, boring accounting job spirals out of control with the addition of a Hollywood film crew, an underground gambling ring, and Jake going undercover as a newlywed—with another woman.

As Miranda and Jake each dive into their investigations, they can’t deny their growing feelings for each other. But it’s more important than ever to keep their attraction hidden as someone at the resort is watching them, and is willing to do just about anything to keep them from uncovering the truth.

Lucky Penny, Chapter 1

Enjoy!

 

CHAPTER ONE

 

I gripped the handle on the courtroom door and took a deep breath before forcing myself to pull it open and walk into the silent and solemn room. The gallery was about half-filled, and several audience members turned to watch me come in. I glanced around quickly, trying to locate my boss, Rob Fogg, in the area reserved for spectators. From the middle of a row near the back of the room, he nodded and waved at a few empty seats near him. I squeezed past other spectators who had come to watch the trial.

“Glad to see you made it,” he whispered as I sat down.

“Parking,” I mumbled.

It was a common excuse in the busy downtown blocks around the federal courthouse, but it was also a lie. I’d found a prime parking space in the lot across the street. I’d also hit every green light on the way there. There was no excuse for my tardiness except my own nerves.
