Each day during the month of March I will feature three Easter, Spring or St Patrick’s Day themed books. Hope you find some that are new to you and some that you enjoy. Enjoy your reading.
When sports and religion collide, it results in an ungodly murder…
As the Notre Dame campus gears up for one of the most religiously-charged sporting events in history-the big game between Catholic Notre Dame and Protestant pastor Edwina Marciniak, plans to make a statement by disrupting both the game and the theological conference campus scholars are holding. But the murder of an administrator threatens to steal the headlines…
Who killed the unlamented Hazel Nootin? Detective Philip Knight and his brother, brilliant philosophy professor Roger Knight, are summoned to put a lid on the case. As they hone in on their prime suspects-and on-and-off-the-wagon reporter, a troubled football star with an explosive secret, and Hazel’s hapless husband-the Knights must score a goal for justice. This is one game they can’t afford to fumble. (Goodreads)
Fashionista and event planner to the stars Haley Randolph is staging a St. Patrick’s Day bash for one of Hollywood’s biggest couples. When she visits the catering company to check on preparations, it looks like the green ice sculptures will be the hit of the party — until Haley finds a server floating face down in the water tank.
Haley becomes the prime suspect in the murder. With a killer — and a giant leprechaun — on the loose, she must do some fast sleuthing to find the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow. Will she kiss the Blarney Stone — or the hot new detective on the case?
Haley will need the luck of the Irish to find the killer — and the hottest handbag of the season! (Goodreads)
Angela Matelli, a good Italian-American girl from East Boston, leaves the Marines to return to the bosom of her family and begin a new career as a private investigator. Her first client (a referral from her Uncle “No-Legs” Charlie) is retired policeman Tom Grady, who hires Angela to check up on Brian Scanlon, his daughter’s new boyfriend. This simple background check, however, soon becomes a confusing tangle of murder, cover-up, and intrigue when Grady is found dead outside his favorite bar and Scanlon is seen keeping company with the suspected leader of a terrorist group. With a dead client and a bag full of loose ends, Angela starts to investigate Tom Grady’s suspicious death and continues to dig into Brian Scanlon’s checkered past, inquiries that lead her to an organization whose seemingly idealistic waters run deceptively deep, a daughter who is torn between her father and her lover, and someone who is out to kill Angela before she is able to find out the truth.
