Tuesday, December 21, 2021

One would think, or at least hope, that non profits were trust worthy--especially one that was created for victims of abuse! This one was a mess and it hadn't even quite started yet. The board of directors was supposed to be 1/2 male and 1/2 female from specific industries. And why were people being murdered after speaking with the head of the board. And why were all those mishaps happening to Stacie? You will love her vicious dog!!

This book will keep you reading until you find out the answers to the above--I know it did me!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The best of intentions shouldn't include murder.

An HR specialist and trauma counselor, Stacie is on the board of a fledgling non-profit foundation set up to benefit victims of domestic violence. After a slashed tire, attempted break in, and a murder, Stacie isn’t buying coincidental bad karma. Someone wants her off the board - at any cost. Her fancy surveillance equipment, impressive alarm system, and a ferocious Maltese dog offer only so much protection. That may not be enough when politics are involved. Enter Kevin McNair, a smooth talker with piercing blue eyes. Can she trust him with her heart or her life?

About the Author: (from Amazon)

Christa Nardi is an accomplished author of cozy mysteries. Christa's background is in higher education and psychology, much as her protagonist, Sheridan Hendley in the Cold Creek mystery series. She has always loved mysteries - reading them, writing them, and solving them. Christa is a member of Sisters in Crime. When not writing or reading, Christa and her husband enjoy travel, three grandchildren, and their dogs.

Murder at Cold Creek College is the first in the Cold Creek series, set in a small, fictitious town in Virginia and Sheridan is an accidental sleuth called on to assist the detective in charge of a colleague's murder. The fifth and last in the series, Murder and a Wedding, was released on August 10, 2017. Sheridan may be moving, but she still gets involved in mysteries with the Sheridan Hendley series.

Christa also authors the Stacie Maroni Myseries. Stacie is a strong female at a crossroads in her life who works with victims of domestic violence. Going back to memories of the Dana Girls, Christa collaborates with Cassidy Salem on a YA mystery series featuring teen sisters.
