Tropical Blues
by Sherryl Woods

Join debutante turned amateur sleuth Molly DeWitt in these two classic mysteries from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sherryl Woods.

Hot Property
(originally published March 1992 in mass market paperback by Dell)

Finding a corpse in the card room of her elegant new Key Biscayne apartment complex was not what Molly DeWitt had in mind for a fresh new start—especially when the knife in the dead Ocean Manor’s president’s back appears to be her own. But when charming homicide detective Michael O’Hara decides to get on her case, it’s up to Molly to track down the real killer and clear her name.

Hot Secret
(originally published October 1992 in mass market paperback by Dell)

When the body of her hotshot young film director is found in actress Veronica Weston’s trailer, she desperately needs an alibi—and Molly DeWitt is it. Molly’s PR job is to keep everyone happy, but solving the case is a challenge she can’t resist…just like homicide detective Michael O’Hara. She and Michael must strip the masks from a cast of potential killers, each of whom has a motive, to keep Veronica from behind bars.



Sherryl Woods' Bio

Author of some 100 romance and mystery novels, Sherryl Woods grew up in Virginia. She divides her time between Key Biscayne, Florida and Colonial Beach, Virginia, the small, river-front town where she spent her childhood summers and where she now owns a bookstore.

A graduate of Ohio State University School of Journalism, Sherryl spent more than ten years as a journalist, most of them as a television critic for newspapers in Ohio and Florida. For several years she also coordinated a motivational program for the more than 8,000 employees at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Medical Center.

Her first book, RESTORING LOVE, was published in 1982 by Dell Candlelight Ecstasy under the pseudonym of Suzanne Sherrill. Her second book, SAND CASTLES, under the pseudonym of Alexandra Kirk, was published later that same year by Bantam. She began using her own name when she moved to the Second Chance at Love line at Berkley Publishing. In 1986, she began writing full-time and also began her long career at Silhouette Books with the Desire title NOT AT EIGHT, DARLING, set in the world of television which she covered for so many years.

In addition to her more than 70 romances for Silhouette Desire and Special Edition, she has written thirteen mysteries --- nine in the Amanda Roberts series and four in the Molly DeWitt series. She has also written 11 mainstreams novels, with the 11th -- THE BACKUP PLAN -- due out from MIRA Books in March, 2005 .

When she's not writing, reading or selling books, Sherryl loves to garden, though she's not at her best on a riding lawn mower. She also loves tennis, theater, and ballet, even though her top spin has long since vanished, she's never set foot on a stage, and she's way too uncoordinated to dance. She also loves baseball and claims anyone who's ever seen Kevin Costner in "Bull Durham" can understand why.
