Cold Water Burning (A Cecil Younger Investigation) by [Straley, John]After years on the job as a private investigator in Sitka, Alaska, Cecil Younger doesn’t claim to have learned much about humanity as a whole, but he does know this: truth is a slippery thing.  

When the wife of a former client asks Cecil to find her husband, Cecil agrees. After all, helping to get Richard exonerated during a tragic murder trial three years ago was one of the biggest successes of Cecil’s career. But why, if Richard’s name was cleared, is he MIA now? Patricia, Richard’s steadfast wife, has one guess: someone is after him. It’s no secret that Richard has a long list of enemies, not least of which are the family members of the dead. But things soon get complicated when Patricia is killed, sending Cecil on a desperate trip to sea to chase down the twisted truth.  (Amazon)

Tequila Trouble: a Danger Cove Cocktail Mystery (Danger Cove Mysteries Book 20) by [Leiren, Nicole, Ashby, Elizabeth]From USA Today bestselling authors Nicole Leiren and Elizabeth Ashby comes a double shot of trouble…

Lilly Waters found the perfect life at the Smugglers’ Tavern—a job she loves, friends she adores, and a hot boyfriend to warm up her cool coastal nights. But before she can even begin to enjoy the good life, trouble finds her in the sleepy town of Danger Cove.

A famous chef makes an unexpected visit to the tavern with an offer that threatens all of Lilly’s future plans, her boyfriend starts to complicate their relationship, and—just when she thought things couldn’t get any worse—a friend’s husband is found dead under suspicious circumstances. The police are pointing their fingers directly at Lilly’s friend, so the bartender once again finds herself at the center of a murder investigation. With danger lurking around every corner, Lilly must figure out if her friend is being set up to take the fall for her husband’s death…or if there are skeletons hiding in her closet.

The Mountain Man's Badge (The Mountain Man Mysteries Book 3) by [Corbin, Gary]Lehigh Carter never wanted to be sheriff. And he sure never wanted to arrest his new father-in-law for murder.

Mountain Man Lehigh Carter got talked into serving the unexpired term of disgraced long-time Mt. Hood County sheriff Buck Winters, hoping for a quiet nine months in office before the voters selected a new, permanent office-holder. But a few months into the job, poachers discover the body of Everett Downey, a sleazy local businessman, and the evidence points to Lehigh’s brand-new father-in-law, the once-powerful senator George McBride. To his chagrin and his new bride’s fury, Lehigh is forced to arrest George for the murder, and suddenly his happy marriage is on the rocks. Soon he’s living in a tent with only his two dogs for companionship.

While most people in Mt. Hood County appreciate Lehigh’s honesty and his willingness to fight the cronyism and corruption that have plagued Mt. Hood County law enforcement for decades, his desire for reform ruffles some important feathers. Lehigh finds himself fighting unseen enemies, determined to portray him as inept and even more corrupt than his predecessor–even at the cost of protecting the integrity of the murder investigation. Even his own deputies seem intent on bringing back the old guard, and a series of evidence leaks put Lehigh’s reputation and ability to serve as sheriff in jeopardy.

Lehigh’s not a quitter, though, and with dogged persistence, begins to chip away at the investigation, discovering facts that don’t add up…and leads him to suspect why some of those most intent on removing him from office have reasons far more sinister than Lehigh’s rustic demeanor.  (Amazon)

When Mollie discovers someone murdered on board, she hopes it will convince her husband that owning a boat is a bad idea. Unfortunately, he’s more determined than ever to fix the boat up and set out to sea.

Mollie finds herself drawn into the tight-knit community living at Palm Tree Marina in Coconut Cove, a small town on the Florida coast. She uncovers a crime ring dealing in stolen marine equipment, investigates an alien abduction, eats way too many chocolate bars, adopts a cat, and learns far more about sailing than she ever wanted to.

Can Mollie discover who the murderer is before her nosiness gets her killed?
