This set includes all four books in this light-hearted romantic mystery series. If you like crazy families, fun engaging reads, and a sweet romance, all tied together with a ribbon of danger then you’ll love The Westport Mysteries.

Dangerous Deeds.

Meet Lizzie.
She’s 31 and having a premature mid-life crisis. So, she bought a lonely, run down old house that pulled on her heartstrings.
But with the purchase Lizzie gets more than she bargained for. She didn’t expect the engagement ring and letters of forbidden love hidden under the attic floorboards. She didn’t expect the lazy cat, or the drop dead gorgeous handyman. And she definitely didn’t expect the stalker.
Filled with a drive to learn the truth, Lizzie sets on a journey of lost love, heartache, and public damnation. But can she solve the mystery before her stalker catches up with her? Or will she lose everything…including her life?

Give Murder A Hand.

How many secrets can one house hide?
Lizzie thought her only problems were her crazy family and too many nightmares. Then the house reveals another secret -a skeleton in the back yard. And this skeleton has 3 hands. Why? Well that’s what she wants to know. But can Lizzie find the truth before the For Sale sign gets hammered into the ground? Or will the secrets of this house claim yet another life?

Deathly Desire.

When the past comes back to haunt you.
Lizzie is ready for a new adventure in her life, and it doesn’t take long for her to find it. After hitting the For Sale sign in to the ground of her house of mysteries, she is quickly charmed by another old house that is in desperate need of some love and attention. Only the house has a secret of its own. Who is its owner? Why is he so hard to find? And why does he own nine other deserted homes in Westport? But when her past reappears and mixes with her future everything she has ever loved is at stake.

Can Lizzie solve the forty-year-old mystery so that she and Riley can begin their next chapter together? Is her past really back to get her, or is there a copycat in Westport? Or will the star of her nightmares destroy everything before it even begins?

Lizzie’s next adventure may not be as much fun as she had hoped.

The Christmas Gift. A Mini Westport Mystery

These holidays Lizzie will stumble along a journey where the past merges with the present, and where she learns the true meaning of Christmas.  (Amazon)

The last thing he needs is a diversion in the form of his long-ago sweetheart, Sam.

Logan has built a life devoid of personal relationships. He likes it that way. Or does he? Having Samantha stumble into the middle of an important mission gives him a glimpse of the life he could have if he’d let his heart lead the way.

Finding Logan thrusts Samantha into a world of danger and adventure. Can she walk away from the only man she’s ever truly loved and get the divorce she seeks? And will they be able to solve the mystery of who is working against them and stop a computer virus in time to save the world and themselves?

On a night of heavy snow and bitter cold, newlyweds Monica and Greg are comfortably nestled before a warm fire when they’re roused by a late-night knock at the door. Surprised to find a troubled and confused woman on the doorstep, Monica is even more shocked when the woman vacantly utters that someone is trying to kill her. Sensing distress but not danger, Monica decides to help this mysterious woman, but her clouded recollections yield little—until she dredges up memories of her sister and a nearby home, where they find the woman’s sister, dead.

Unable to deny her own curiosity or the woman’s request for help, Monica begins digging into the suspicious death, only to discover a murky family history of valuable land, a bullying brother, an unscrupulous real estate developer, and endless rumors of good deeds met with bad blood. And when the trail of the killer begins to turn cold, Monica realizes that while the family wants to bury their sister, someone is out to bury the clues—and if Monica’s not careful, to bury her as well . . .

Musket Ball Murder (Merry Wrath Mysteries Book 14) by [Langtry, Leslie]From USA Today bestselling author Leslie Langtry comes a Civil War reenactment, a missing body, and one ex-CIA agent turned Girl Scout Troop leader with hilarious results!

Merry Wrath has a problem. Her Girl Scout Troop co-leader has signed them up to participate in a Civil War reenactment based on the little-known Battle of Idiot Creek. In full 19th century costume, Merry is just hoping she can keep her troop out of trouble. Unfortunately, things start to fall apart immediately—from the cannon the kids buy with her credit card, to one girl sneaking off at night to beat the other reenactors at poker, to avoiding a rumble between her troop and the haughty Magnolia Girls.

But things take a sharp turn for the worse when a real human leg appears in the pretend amputation tent…only to disappear while Merry’s guarding it. The rest of the body doesn’t seem to exist, making Merry wonder if she’s losing her mind… or if there’s a murderer among them. To complicate things, Merry’s ex CIA handler, Riley, appears as a dashing cavalry officer investigating a real case, her married best friend is swooning over the Sam Elliot-like Provost, and during the battles, a tiny Union soldier appears to be running guerrilla ops that weren’t in the script.

With a group of soldiers threatening Merry, the Sheriff refuses to investigate, and the danger mounting, can Merry prove that there was a murder before the reenactment ends?

Not ready to give up the life yet, they come up with a proposal for fellow former cop, Laurie Carpenter, and her investigating partner, Marcus.
