Sounds like fun!

Dropping the Dime, Miranda Vaughn Mysteries #2, is now available in audio! The wonderful, talented Teri Schnaubelt narrated the book and, once again, she nailed it! I loved the way brought Chasing the Dime to life, so it was great to be able to work with her again.

The timing of the audiobook’s release couldn’t be better because I’m now back in Miranda’s world, working on the fourth book in the series. I’ve missed Miranda, Jake, Sarah, and the rest of the characters. While I’m plotting new adventures for them, I’m listening to the first two books to get back into that world.

Hope you’re all enjoying the summer!

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

LuckyPenny-tinyLucky Penny, book 3 in the Miranda Vaughn Mysteries series, is out on December 14th! Yay! Here’s a sneak peak at 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.

Coming soon!

Lucky Penny, book 3 in the Miranda Vaughn Mysteries series, will be out December 14!

LuckyPenny-FinalA year after her acquittal on fraud charges, former financial analyst 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!

Perched above the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe, the Whispering Pines Resort & Spa is a local landmark and a popular destination for the rich and famous who are stressed out from being rich and famous. And down on the water’s edge is the Lucky Penny Casino—an abandoned shell of a once-stylish casino. Max Emmerson, the owner of the Whispering Pines Resort, used to own the Lucky Penny, and he wants it back. Miranda’s job is to get Max’s finances in order so he can borrow the money to buy the casino, and make sure nothing jeopardizes his gaming license. Easy, right?

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 at the resort 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 that they keep their attraction hidden. Especially since someone at the resort is watching them very closely, and is willing to do just about anything to keep them from uncovering the truth.
