MURDER BY THE GLASS coming soon!

I’m thrilled to announce that MURDER BY THE GLASS launches on July 13, 2021 with Untreed Reads Publishing

Each story in this stellar anthology blends a baffling mystery, a glass … and a MURDER!

In my story, “How Do You Mend a Broken Heart?,” a pricey fundraiser brings together Richmond, Virginia’s elite. Enter two glamorous sisters, Kate and Becca, who are grieving the loss of their parents. What better way to mend their broken hearts than a hunt for rich husbands? It doesn’t take long for Becca to choose the attractive, sexy—and rich!—Jeremy Redman as perfect husband material. She employs every one of the many feminine wiles in her arsenal to stake her claim on his heart.

I’ve worked with most of these authors on previous anthologies–VIRGINIA IS FOR MYSTERIES, VIRGINIA IS FOR MYSTERIES, VOL. II, 50 SHADES OF CABERNET, and DEADLY SOUTHERN CHARMand look forward to seeing them again at signings and promotional events. Granted, the events will be virtual for quite a while, but our enthusiasm will fill cyberspace to overflowing!
