Grab a helmet, strap yourself in and speed along with the author to its wild conclusion.

After running over her ex-husband’s dead body in Daytona, Florida, Laura, even though she’s on her honeymoon and should have other things on her mind, can’t stop herself becoming involved in the investigation of his death. Laura and her new hubby, Gerry, a pair of amateur detectives, become involved with good and bad cops, and with dangerous criminals, especially a particular NASCAR driver with a nasty habit. Laura and Gerry have to use all their wits to stay alive and bring her ex-husband’s killer to justice.

Karen Vaughan brings a lot of her natural humour to the story and drives the plot along at NASCAR pace. Grab a helmet, strap yourself in and speed along with the author to its wild conclusion.

Karen Vaughan has written up another winner!

Laura Fritz is back along with the characters I have come to love from this author’s other books in the series. This time, Laura meets a couple of authors. Natalie, Silvie, and Terri were close friends and struggling to be authors. When two of the women die mysteriously, Laura gets involved and the adventure to solve a mystery begins. Karen Vaughan writes no-frills stories with amazing and believable characters. Grabbing a book by this author is like sitting down with an old friend and having a chat. Here novels are twisted mysteries with a cozy appeal and not to be missed.

“I enjoyed this book enormously and highly recommend it to everyone.” – Left for Dead (Laura & Gerry Mystery #6) by Karen Vaughan

Things are really starting to heat up in the Fitz family. Gerry’s cousin and best buddy is left for dead after a beating. When the thugs responsible find out he didn’t die, the game is on to keep Pete safe until he has to testify. After finding a body on a mountain trail in cottage country, Laura helps a local police officer solve the crime while waiting for the birth of her first baby.

DELIGHTFUL MURDER MYSTERY

By M. Moran Bishop

Left for Dead by Karen Vaughan, is witty and intelligently told mystery story. It’s the 6th in the Laura and Gerry mysteries series and a delightfully penned book.
It seems even pregnancy will not stop Laura Fitz from being a corpse magnet, as she stumbles yet again onto another dead body. While Laura is talking to the police, she receives a phone call from hubby. Apparently, Laura’s gift or curse for discovering the dead and becoming embroiled in the nasty affairs of the murder has rubbed off on to Gerry, for he has found his cousin near death.

The Fitz’s have once again become entangled in murder, mayhem, the lives of others along with the danger it entails. But, through it, all Laura remains her witty self. Gerry doesn’t fare as well as his love for Laura, and their coming baby upset his judgment at times. After all, it is difficult to be objective when the life of one’s wife is on the line.

Ms. Vaughan has another terrific read in Left for Dead. I enjoyed this book enormously and highly recommend it to everyone.

Original, plenty of twists and turns.

By UsedtobeCranky

Top Contributor: Fantasy BooksSamantha Jacobey’s, The Wicked Awakened, is a perfect Halloween read.Sarah and her childhood best friend, Karen, are off to college. Unlike Karen, Sarah is a dedicated student. Karen has other interests.I loved the depiction of the two childhood friends and their relationship. I thought the author did an excellent job of portraying the complex ties that bonds friends and how it can mask competing impulses.In high school, both girls shared an interest in witchcraft. Karen’s ties went deeper than Sarah knew.Karen is involved with a dangerous coven, who are interested in recruiting Sarah.Things go bump in the night, creative and original twists. Stories involving the occult. Some of the twists and turns, I didn’t see coming.

But just when you think things are going good, she is thrown into yet another set of problems. Can Tori and Michael’s relationship really last when she gets unexpected news that someone from her past is in needs her help? I have loved this whole series so far and can’t wait to see what Samantha has in store for the next book.
