A NOTE FROM JERRI

For years, I have wanted to write a Christmas romance. Unfortunately, I have never squeezed a Christmas novel into my schedule. I didn’t want this year to pass without something I could offer my fans.

This year—for only the Christmas season—I am offering three of my books for a bargain. Now it is FREE until Thursday!!!

Fragmented, the first book of Boston’s Crimes of Passion series, is a stand-alone romantic suspense.
Past of Shadows, the first book of The Three Realms, is a high fantasy series. This is an ongoing series.
Belle of Charleston, the first book of Southern Legacy, is a serial historical romance. This is a serial! The books have cliffhangers. Do not begin if you don’t want to become addicted to the series! Southern Legacy consists of four books–Belle of Charleston, Shadows of Magnolia, Born to Be Brothers and The Sun Will Rise.

I couldn’t be more excited about introducing you to my different genre series. I hope you enjoy these books as much as I enjoyed writing them.

I am, also, thrilled to announce I am releasing a new series, Scream for the Camera, Book One in Boston’s Crimes of Horror. You can preorder at this link:

Happy Reading. Enjoy the holidays!

First book in the Death by Chocolate series

Lindsay loves chocolate. It tastes good, it makes her feel good, it never cheats on her like her almost-ex-husband. It’s her best friend. But someone wants her dead and uses her weak spot—chocolate—to try to murder her.

Lindsay’s only secret is the recipe for her chocolate chip cookies, but she is surrounded by neighbors with deadly secrets. Suddenly she finds herself battling poisoned chocolate, a psycho stalker, and a dead man who seems awfully active for a corpse.

Her best friend and co-worker, Paula, dyes her blond hair brown, hides from everybody and insists on always having an emergency exit from any room. Secrets from Paula’s past have come back to put lives in jeopardy.

Determined to help Paula, Lindsay enlists the reluctant aid of another neighbor, Fred, an OCD computer nerd. In spite of his mundane existence, Fred possesses tidbits of knowledge about such things as hidden microphones, guns, the inside of maximum security prisons and how to take someone down with a well-aimed kick to his chin.

As Lindsay battles the elusive stalker, poisoned chocolate, and the dead man, she will need more than a chocolate fix to survive. But that’s always a good start.
