Will paranormal sleuth Baxley Powell prevail over an energy vampire?

Amateur sleuth Baxley Powell is on vacation at Stony Creek Lake in north Georgia. A young man’s body is found beside the lake, and there’s no apparent cause of death. The local police urge Baxley, an expert at closing unusual cases, to help and she agrees.

Her psychic sleuthing leads the police to a halfway house where someone is draining victims of their life force. Jonas, the only person still standing in the house, escapes, taking the sheriff as a hostage. Deputy Sam Mayes, a Native American, leads the manhunt.

Baxley’s paranormal talent of dreamwalking, which she uses to traverse the veil of life, draws the unwanted attention of beings believed to be Cherokee folklore. They prevail upon her to get it back from Jonas.

With the body count rising, Baxley and Mayes are up against an entity who appears to be invincible. Can they subdue an energy vampire, turn the tide of evil, and save the day?


What the pros are saying about Dadgummit:

“Plenty of suspense and a surprise twist” – RT Reviews

“From the very first page, I was drawn in by the powerful prose, the tight sentences, the images, and the way she blends the consciousness of the characters with plot and setting. The characters are unique and original, and their extraordinary gifts make them even more interesting. I loved Baxley and her dreamwalking gift and how this gift plays a central role in her investigation. The plot is tight, well developed, and well paced to keep the reader turning the pages. Dadgummit is a rare story that will have readers completely engrossed in the plot and in the characters.” – Readers Favorite

Turtle Tribbles

To save her father, Lindsey must face her darkest fear.

In the second novella of the Lindsey & Ike Romantic Mystery Series, newspaper editor Lindsey McKay must decide if she’s ready to take the next step with her boyfriend, Sheriff Ike Harper. He’s anxious for her to move in, but she worries something is missing. Meanwhile, the Turtle Girl, a college intern named Selma Crowley, begs Lindsey to cover her turtle story. Someone is stealing federally protected loggerhead turtle eggs off a Georgia barrier island, and it has to stop.

The earnest young woman convinces Lindsey of the story’s potential, and the next day Lindsey ferries to the island to see the nests and take photos. Selma promises she’ll have tangible evidence of the theft on Friday, but the revelation doesn’t occur. Worse, Selma’s missing, and no one’s seen her since Wednesday evening. Because she demanded proof from Selma for the newspaper story, Lindsey blames herself for the intern’s disappearance.

When Selma’s body is discovered, Lindsey vows to get justice for Selma and her turtles. Selma’s tribbles are over, but the tribbles are just beginning for Lindsey and her trusty sidekick, Labrador retriever Bailey.

What the pros say about this novella:

“Turtle Tribbles is a fast-paced suspense with a good dose of sensual romance.” – Reader Forever
