Excerpt from Book 1 - Barking Mad at Murde

While Jennifer Peters retrieved my windbreaker from the closet, David Peters handed over a crisp fifty-dollar bill, though he accompanied it with a side of grumbling.

As he complained, his mouth continued to move, but the grumbling suddenly morphed into the roar of a train--the same sound I'd heard described by people who'd survived earthquakes. I looked up to see if the light fixtures were moving, which might be why I didn't see it coming.  

A blow to my sternum sent me flying. As I landed hard on my back, my first thought was that David had decided to hang on to his Grant and punch me instead, but he stood over me with the bill still clutched in his hand and his eyes open wide in shock.

My head hurt where it connected with the floor, and the headache from the last few days pounded against my temples until I thought my head would burst. 

Jennifer Peters chose this moment to return with my jacket draped over her arm. 

"David! What have you done?"

I clutched at the soft Berber carpeting and pulled myself to my hands and knees, rubbing the sore spot in the center of my chest. When the Peters' living room faded from sight, I froze. 

I was in a jungle, surrounded by diamond-shaped leaves. The foliage parted and revealed a youngish woman with long, curly black hair. She wasn’t a happy woman. I could tell because her eyes were open wide, and there was a gloved hand placed firmly over her mouth. She fought against her attacker, jerking her head side to side as she fought for her life. Yes, I knew she was fighting for her life.

And as strange as it sounds, the letter “U” floated above her head.

My nostrils burned from an assault of strong odors—chemical scents and roses, gardenias and, oddly, vanilla. I could feel her panic, and as my chest tightened, I growled—a low, rumbling warning. My throat tightened, my muscles cramped, and I fought back the urge to scream. At least I thought I did.

As the details faded, my mouth was open wide, and the room echoed with the remains of a dying shriek.

“What is it?” Jennifer cried as I gasped in a deep breath to recover my wind. Her voice sounded far away. I had to blink a few times before the room came back into focus.
Had I hit my head so hard I’d passed out and dreamed?

“Water,” I croaked, still on my knees and stroking my neck to try to sooth the burn in my throat.

While David pulled me to my feet and led me to the couch, Jennifer retrieved a glass of water from the kitchen.

My hands shook when I accepted it. As I emptied the glass, water dribbled down my chin and onto my lap. Jennifer’s gaze flickered toward the white carpet.

“Do you, er, feel sick?”

David offered to escort me to the bathroom.

“Not necessary,” I assured him. I rubbed my forehead so hard I thought I might leave a mark. It probably wasn’t my finest professional moment, but when I looked up into their concerned faces, I couldn’t help but ask:

“What in the hell was that?”

Harlow Brothers

Civility Rules

 

Meet the Harlow Brothers.

Edward, a former college linebacker and ghost writer of a popular etiquette series, makes public appearances on behalf of the fictitious Aunt Civility as her nephew. His younger brother, Nicholas, is his secretary, personal assistant, and dogsbody.

When the brothers arrive at Inglenook Resort for a lecture on all things genteel, the discovery of a corpse in the guest room next door sends Edward’s ordered world spinning out of control.

Nicholas scrambles to keep the author's reputation unsullied by this ultimate breech in manners—and his volatile temper in check—but soon the investigation turns into a sibling competition, and the price for losing is death.

 

Bad Behavior

Be careful what you wish for.

It drives Nicholas Harlow nuts that his employer, Edward Harlow, refuses to promote his Aunt Civility etiquette books to the public, instead opting to give lectures to like-minded societies. When Nicholas tricks his brother into a speaking event at a popular bookstore in Citrus Grove, the attendees include Edward’s former college English professor – a smarmy Lothario with his own book to hawk. Then the professor dies in a spectacularly public manner, and his last act is to point an accusatory finger at his former student.

When Edward is brought in for questioning in front of the local paper’s star reporter, Nicholas adds damage control to a growing list of responsibilities that includes pegging the appropriate party for murder. But when he develops feeling for one of the suspects that no respectable sleuth should have, the investigation jumps off the rails. Unfortunately, the killer remains on course, and it’s only a matter of time before the brothers must make hard decisions in order to deliver justice.

Deadly Decorum

 

 

Mistaken identities, romantic rivals, and a host of misunderstandings.

The Harlow Brothers are back at Inglenook Resort, and not just because Edward is missing his long-distance love, Claudia Inglenook. The former college linebacker turned ghost writer of the Aunt Civility etiquette books is the guest of honor at a charity fundraiser.

At the kickoff costume ball, one of the guests is found impaled with the sword from Edward’s Zorro outfit. As Nicholas, the author’s brother and secretary, attempts to find the real killer, he comes up
