A TRICK OF FATE (Brandon Brothers - MAX) is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

Max Brandon is receiving bills for services he never ordered and goods he did not buy.  (In 250 years' time, this will be called identity theft -- but Max doesn't know that.)  What he does know is that he intends to catch the man responsible.  The result is a haphazard chase involving ruined abbeys, a hunt for hermits, a grotesque portrait ... and a love story which, but for this odd trick of fate, might never have been given a second chance.

A TRICK OF FATE will be released on October 25th

This is the 4th Pluto's Snitch mystery. ON SALE TODAY for only $4.99 by USA Today Bestselling author Carolyn Haines. Buy it here!

When Raissa and Reginald travel to Mission, Alabama to assist a new mother who "dreams the truth," they aren't prepared for the viciousness of the residents of the small, isolated town where men rule and women serve.

Elizabeth Maslow is unmarried and her child was born with webbed hands and feet. She is also determined to save Slater McEachern from the hangman's noose---because she knows he's innocent of murder. She's witnessed the murder in her dreams.

But there is evil afoot in Mission, and not just from Lucais Wilkins, the man who rules the town with an iron fist. Buzzards roost on the outskirts of town and watchers lurk in the woods. Elizabeth believes an angel lives in Mission. She believes he is the father of her child.

Raissa and Reginald must unravel the truth before Slater---and possibly Elizabeth---are both hanged. The danger for Raissa and Reginald has never been greater.

1st book in her new series First Comes Love

What does a fiercely independent young widow really want? 
One determined suitor is about to find out. . .

When Adeline, Dowager Countess of Wake, learns of her husband's sudden death, she realizes she's free.  At last, she can do, go, and be as she pleases.  Finally, she can have the life she has always dreamed of.  She doesn't need, or want, to remarry.  Especially not the supremely dashing Earl of Lyonwood, who makes Adeline yearn for his desire. . .

Lord Lyonwood, son of a philandering marquis, will not be like his father.  He wants to run his estates and watch them flourish -- and find a wife who brings love to his life.  When he meets spirited and self-reliant Adeline in a case of near-scandalous mistaken identity, Lyon feels he's met his match.  But Adeline isn't interested in a marriage proposal.  She will only accept becoming his lover -- and Lyon finds it hard to refuse.  Unless the fire of his passion can melt Adeline's resolve. . .
