Coming late 2022: Introducing my brand new cozy mystery series: Whitney Watson, Travel Nurse: Scrubs and Sleuths Cozy Mysteries!
Recently jilted by her hometown fiance, equipped with a shiny silver travel trailer, her black lab Jayko, and sassy cat Winnie, Whitney Watson has a knack for stumbling upon dead bodies wherever her hospital jobs take her. It’s no accident her arrivals coincide with mysterious deaths, thanks to the handsome but haughty FBI field officer Tommy Parker, who recruited her and arranges her assignments.
Whitney and her furry friends settle into quaint campgrounds all across the country and use their charm and wits to navigate the small, tight-knit towns and even tighter lipped communities. Through the buzz of funeral attendees, coffee shop chatter, hair salon gossip, and more, the amateur Whitney provides just the innocent front Tommy and his quirky IT assistant Ray need as they work to get to the bottom of nefarious crimes, promising readers stories chock full of mystery, a little bit of romance, and of course, a whole lot of cozy.
Corpse at the Cape
Whitney Watson’s first assignment as a travel nurse takes her to Florida’s Gulf Coast, where developer Blaine Davis has tragically drowned after accidentally falling overboard while on a charter fishing expedition.
But authorities soon realize Blaine’s death was no accident. A plethora of people are content to see him dead: an ex-wife, a money-grubbing fiance, a jealous brother, and environmental groups furious about his determination to build high rise condominiums on the beaches of the endangered brown mouse that calls the sea oats home.
Join Whitney and her furry friends as they navigate their first murder mystery on Cape Coquina, where sugary sands and colorful sunsets belie the dastardly deeds of whomever made sure Blaine Davis became shark bait. A charming whodunnit sure to warm the hearts of cozy mystery lovers everywhere.
Pulseless at the Point
Whitney and her furry friends head to the coast of Maine for their next travel nurse mystery, where the white capped sea delivers the body of the small town’s mayor onto the rocky shore in the murky morning fog. Determining whodunnit proves more difficult than ever, especially when a second body washes up near the town’s historical lighthouse, and Whitney and her behind-the-scenes FBI squad race to find the killer before he strikes again.
Slayed in the Smokies
The misty, rolling hills of the Smoky Mountains are the next destination for Whitney Watson and her crime capers. This time, the murder she is called to investigate hits close to her nurses’ heart when a local physician is found dead on the Appalachian Trail. What first appears a tragic slip down a wet and rocky trail edge quickly turns to foul play, and the staff at Rocky Mountain Community Hospital are not talking. Will Whitney’s charm and discernment enable her to crack the coal-hard facade of the suspects? Or will her own life be in danger when she snoops too far?
