Never Go Back

Beyond the glitz and glamour of the Las Vegas Strip, someone is about to die.

Alison Carter's world is upended when her boss is murdered in front of her eyes. What she doesn't know is things are about to get much, much worse.

Detective Brad Gilmore has dealt with his fair share of homicides, but he's about to face the biggest challenge of his career. What he expects to be a straightforward murder investigation turns into anything but. Yet with all evidence pointing to Alison, he's under pressure to wrap things up quickly.

Now Alison and Brad are in a race to find a killer. If Brad fails, this may be the end of his career. But for Alison, the stakes are much higher. The happy life she once took for granted is in danger of being shattered forever . . . and she just might end up serving time for a crime she didn't commit.

Murder in White Sands

On the night of her engagement, Rae Lynn Dobbs stumbles across a dead body on the beach of White Sands, Florida. Not only does she recognize the murder victim as one of the retirement-home residents where she serves dinner, but it looks increasingly likely that someone there also killed him.

To her fiancé's dismay, Rae Lynn launches her own investigation. Between the gossipy widows, the home's last surviving bachelor, and her coworkers, Rae Lynn doesn't have any shortage of suspects. But the more she learns, the more it seems anyone could be guilty. And if she doesn't find out "whodunit" quickly, her fiancé might just become fed up enough to leave.

Fatal Fire

Amy Wagner refuses to believe her sister Gina's fatal fire was a tragic accident, regardless of what the arson investigation concludes. Not only does Gina never cook, but her laboratory burned down just one week prior. The timing is a little too suspicious for Amy's tastes.

Amy is not the only one questioning whether her sister was murdered. Trent Steinbeck, Gina's colleague, also wants answers. As they work to uncover what really happened that fateful night, Amy finds her attraction deepening as much as their investigation. But to get to the truth, Trent may need to put himself in danger. And if they can't figure out what's going on before he becomes the killer's next victim, Amy might soon find herself seeking justice for two deaths.

But before long, Haley finds herself questioning everything about the case . . . and if she's not careful, her snooping could turn her into a murder victim.

Lethal Injection

Las Vegas stripper Megan Kelley never expects the police to show up on her doorstep with the news that Carly, her pregnant roommate, is dead. Now Megan not only has to come up with the full rent by herself, but she seems to be one of the few convinced that Carly's death isn't as straightforward as it appears. But was Carly murdered, or had her life simply spiraled out of control? And, if she was a victim of foul play, "whodunit"?

Megan is determined to solve the mystery of what really happened to Carly, even if that means infiltrating a clinic for unwed mothers-to-be or partnering with a grumpy exotic dancer to help with her sleuthing efforts. But instead of getting answers, Megan's quest turns into more questions . . . until her investigation leads to a horrifying truth more shocking than anything she imagined.
