Fringe Benefits, Book 4 in the Coffee & Crime Mysteries, featuring coffee shop owner Ellie Gooden, is heading into final edits (YAY!!), so I thought I’d share a sneak peek from Chapter One here with you all!  Hope this whets your appetite!

Lila Lee made one final, stertorous effort to inhale before collapsing to the floor. Ellie saw a flash of bright white light manifest above the body and skitter up towards the ceiling.  As it vanished, she felt a chill ripple her scalp.  With a curse, Charlie started CPR, but Ellie knew it would do little good.  The author’s spirit had, as the saying went, left the building.  Lila Lee Merrill, the First Lady of Love, was dead.

Stay tuned for the final release date!  And as always,

Illegitimi non carborundum
