Mapped Out Murders

Sarah Groben’s an LAPD Homicide Detective and a Pastor’s wife. But she’s got six murders she hopes to solve by Sunday. Members of a fledgling group for 10-40 transplants seeking Christianity are being killed. A Muslim charity interested in better relations with Americans seems to be connected by the death of a former financial manager. Family members of the victims might also end up in the crosshairs if Sarah is right about a “Persecutor for Hire.”

Sarah’s partner is down with the flu and her husband Don seems like a tailor-made substitute with his knowledge of Middle eastern languages and cultures. But the case keeps getting more complicated by the minute, and Sarah and Don might not be able to crack it before the killing starts again.

Fifty Shades of Faithful Price $2.99

Fifty Shades of Faithful

Five short stories about Sam and Vivian Tucker, a cop and a photographer sharing their 20+ years of Song of Solomon marriage wisdom in most unconventional ways.

Sam has to forget how tough it is when Viv leaves town, because a young couple’s about to lose their marriage and maybe more over bondage gone wrong in “Cowboys and Indians.”

Vivian isn’t supposed to get involved in the lives of her photography clients but she persuades Sam that an intervention is needed to stop spousal abuse in “Punching Bag.”

Not everybody wants a fairytale fantasy come true, least of all a bitter brother accusing his dead brother’s Nurse-wife of golddigging in “Happily Ever After.”

Family secrets kept by generations of women are no excuse for adultery, but Sam and Vivian still want to help, if healing is possible, in “A Garden Locked Up.”

Sam and Vivian can only hope it’s not too late to save trafficked children and the couple determined to help them, no matter the danger, in “Family Package.”

  1. I’m in the middle of The Great Thirst series………. How shockingly close we are to being persecuted in such ways and losing access to our beloved Bibles. Once again, Mary’s literary skill boggles this mind and I can hardly put down the current book I’m on to do my dishes! Love your work and can’t wait to read more.
