I’m a writer and a reader. These authors are a few of my friends with pens. When I get one of their books on my Kindle, I snuggle in with an apple and fall into their stories. They are on this page because I enjoy their writing, their friendship, and sharing their book with other readers. I’m honored to have them on the site.
Barbara E. Brink
Here’s the first book in Barbara’s new series.
Blake and Shelby Gunner think they’re living the perfect life. He’s a hotshot homicide detective and she is doing what she loves best, small theater acting. But after an arrest goes badly and Blake is shot and injured, they decide to leave the crime-ridden city for the quiet, quirky little hamlet where he grew up. Nestled along Lake Superior in the upper peninsula of Michigan, Port Scuttlebutt isn’t as calm and serene as they anticipated. Below an innocent Mayberry surface are secrets as dangerous as the great lake’s rip currents.
Staying at The Drunken Sailor Bed and Breakfast, they learn that the proprietor’s wife was killed in an unsolved hit-and-run and there’s more to this mystery than meets the eye. The mayor, the librarian, a homeless man, and a rich old woman all have legitimate motives for murder. Can the Gunners figure it out before the killer’s next victim is lying dead in the road?

Nike’s first book in her new series:
Betrayal runs in private investigator Veronica “Ronnie” Ingels’ family. So, why is she surprised when her husband of one year cheats on her? The real shock is his murder, with the local lawman pegging her as the prime suspect.
Ronnie Ingels is a Brooklyn bred private investigator who travels to west Texas, where her cheating husband is murdered. As she hunts the killer to clear her name, she becomes the hunted.
Deputy Sergeant Dawson Hughes, a former Army Ranger, is a man folks want on their side. Only he’s not so sure at first, he’s on the meddling New York PI’s side. As the evidence points away from her, he realizes the more she butts in, the more danger she attracts to herself.
What one reader wrote: “I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this book after reading the first one! I had to find out what happened between Dawson and Ronnie. Author Nike Chillemi wrote a great sequel that kept me biting my nails and yelling out a few suggestions at her characters. The action was intense. I won’t spoiling the surprises, but be prepared for a couple of nasty villains. The romance between Chillemi’s hunky cowboy and the tough yet fragile Ronnie was better than book one – thank you very much!! I’m already looking forward to the next book!”
