Death by Stiletto by K.T. Roberts Book Cover

A jewel thief on the loose . . . a dead body in the closet . . . a good deed gone wrong, and the homecoming is just getting started!

When the McKall triplets return home to Cape May, New Jersey for their high school reunion, they never expected to be involved in a homicide on their first night in town. But after their former classmate Sissy Post bangs on their door and begs for help, they feel the need to become involved.

The misguided attempt to help places Shelby McKall at the murder scene, and lands both Shelby and Sissy in custody. When the victim turns out to be none other than the archenemy of both women, they find themselves in deep trouble with the evidence stacking high against them.

Now, the McKall sisters must prove Shelby’s innocence, and they’re looking to the newest detective on the force for help. Arrogant and stubborn, this former nerd—who sizzles hotter than the Arizona sun in August—gives the sisters a hard time at every turn. But as the crime spree continues, the sisters feel drastic measures are in order. Only this time, they’re in way over their heads!

When his sleuthing turns up other homicides connected to the cardiology department, including a young woman whose throat has been slit, he convinces Max that they should work together.

Educating Daphne by K. T. Roberts book coverIsabella Carrington really screwed up this time!

It took her three years to build her reputation as a political columnist and only minutes to watch it nosedive, all because of a dumb mistake. Okay, so she got a little sloppy when she convinced her peer to let her write the Valentine’s Day column so she could dedicate it to her boyfriend. Too bad she didn’t pay more attention to the photograph she used for the column: a picture of the Mayor’s wife kissing another man! Now…she’s lost the job, the career, and the boyfriend!

But you can be sure it won’t take long for Rory Winters, editor at the Globe to take control. He’s ready to hire her on the spot. And speaking of spots–he’s always had a soft one for her. Issie’s the one who got away before it got started. But this clever man has it all figured out now. Let her write Dear Daphne, a column where she’ll be dishing out advice to the masses on how to snag a lasting love. He doesn’t know she’s down on love these days. But ole Rory thinks it’s a win-win. He’s banking on the column increasing the papers circulation and while that’s taking place, he’s getting an education on how to snag her love…and she’s learning how to love. How clever is that?

And then there’s that little matter of ROSES . . lots of roses. So who’s the secret admirer?
