Ger the crossing with review.png
 All Carson Reno Mystery Series Books are standalone novels. It is not necessary to read them in any particular order.
The racial problems of 1962 have found their way to the small West Tennessee town of Humboldt. A white woman has been brutally murdered, and one of Carson’s childhood friends has been accused of the crime. Carson’s friend is a colored man who once worked for his grandfather, but the accusations and problems extend beyond the crime and to the heart of this small community.
Carson finds a divided town; a town divided along the lines of race and the interference of outside groups, which makes this division even wider.
Challenged with defending his friend, Carson must find a solution before the two sides collide, which would definitely have devastating results.
Join Carson, as he faces one of his toughest challenges in ‘the Crossing.’

5-star review
By Elna Blankenship
INTRIGUING read…couldn’t put it down!!! Even if you’ve never read a Carson Reno mystery, you will immediately get wrapped up in this terrific tale. As in all Carson stories, the characters are colorful and true to life all engulfed in twists and turns – some digging for the truth and others hiding in Shadows and Lies! In addition to the brilliantly written “whodunit” mystery with historical references and period pics, the author’s clever hints, innuendos and plays on words further enhance reading pleasure. For me, references to actual places and events in West TN invoke fond memories, especially the Peabody Hotel Lounge where my parents spent time with their friends before I was born. So, Carson Reno, “keep ’em coming”!!!

Blurb

Her dreams shattered, Connie Meyer just wants to be left alone to live her life in peace. She finds that difficult to do when her estranged husband’s mother insists she returns to her son and a marriage she no longer wants—a marriage that does more harm than good.

Desperate to escape, Connie returns to Vail Mountain, the one place she had truly felt alive. However, her troubles soon follow her, and she gets more than she bargained for as she fights not only her past but the intense feelings that one newly elected sheriff arouses in her.

Jacob Tanner is weary of the city life and the never-ending stream of criminals that plague New York City. He resigns from the police force after a drug bust goes wrong, landing himself in the hospital to face his mortality alone. Uncertain about the direction of his life, he learns of the new sheriff position on Vail Mountain and takes a gigantic leap of faith—faith that he isn’t making a big mistake. Armed with nothing but a few possessions, Jacob relocates, only to find himself falling hard for a woman whose blue eyes speak of pain and loneliness.

As he battles his worst nightmare, can Jacob show her there is more to life than what they have been dealt and convince her that with him, nothing is impossible?

TAKE A TRIP TO JAMAICA THEY SAID, IT’LL BE FUN THEY SAID–JAMAICA DEAD BY KAREN VAUGHAN BOOK 5 OF THE LAURA AND GERRY SERIES.

pizap.com14784631022551.jpg After Graduating from the Crime scene investigator course, Laura and Gerry escape for some quality time in Jamaica. As usual, things are not going according to Hoyle for Cookie the corpse magnet as another murder takes place. The victim was obnoxious and not widely admired by his fellow vacationers but what did Donovan Mitchell do to deserve death?

ON SALE IN APRIL FOR 99 CENTS!

JAMAICA DEAD (LAURA & GERRY Book 5) by [VAUGHAN, KAREN] Love the sarcastic one-liners, sometimes on the bawdy side, delivered with good comedic timing

July 1, 2016

Format: Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase

Karen Vaughan writes from up North—way up north. You know, over the border in Canada, eh? I have kinfolk there, too, so maybe it’s family ties that make the characters and stories special. Not that she situates all her mysteries there. In book 3, Daytona Dead, Laura, and Gerry Fitz cross the border into the U.S. As preposterous as it may seem, they find themselves in the middle of a monumental mess from the moment they arrive for a honeymoon in Daytona Beach, FL. What else would you expect when you pull into the resort parking lot and run over a dead body? And, oh yeah, the dead guy you ran over just happens to be your ex-husband. In a situation like that, you can just thank your lucky stars if you get back to Canada alive and without creating an international incident. In Jamaica Dead, that international incident thing is back on the table. Another vacation, another murder for “corpse magnet,” Laura Fitz! When an obnoxious fellow traveler turns up dead, was it something he said, or is there something more sinister going on? Maybe even a bit of hoodoo or voodoo? You’ll have to read it to find out!

What I like best: Sarcastic one-liners, sometimes on the bawdy side, and delivered in a comedic style. Why not? Karen Vaughan has some stand-up experience on her resume!
