Two Killer Murder Mysteries in One!


Small-town reporter Leah Nash has a plan. She’s rebooting her career with a true-crime book based on a major story she broke. Until it’s published, she’s trying to keep her head down under the icy glare of her new boss at the Himmel Times Weekly. But then a local surgeon dies, his daughter begs Leah for help, and all bets are off.

The medical examiner, the police, and the district attorney have written the death off as suicide. And with good reason. The surgeon had a motive, he left a note, and there’s no evidence anyone else was at the scene. Still, his daughter insists that her father was murdered.

Hardheaded though she is, Leah has a soft spot for lost causes. Soon she’s involved in a cat and mouse game with a clever killer who seems to know her next move before she does. But the game ends when someone she loves is next on the list. Can Leah find the answers before it’s too late?

Fans of mysteries featuring strong female protagonists will enjoy following Leah Nash as she navigates storylines full of twists and turns. The series combines the familiar pleasures of a small-town cozy—a cast of recurring characters, a touch of romance, and total immersion in an imaginary small-town setting—with the sharper dialogue and edgier plot of a mystery thriller.


When teenager Heather Young disappeared from the small town of Himmel, Wisconsin everyone believed her boyfriend had killed her—though her body was never found. Twenty years later, his little sister Sammy returns to town. She begs her old friend, true crime writer Leah Nash, to prove her brother Eric isn’t a murderer.

But Sammy has no new evidence, and her brother doesn’t want Leah’s help. Leah says no—but she can’t help feeling guilty about it.

That feeling gets much worse when Sammy is killed in a suspicious car accident. That’s when the independent, irreverent, unstoppable Leah takes up her cause. Her investigation takes her to some dark and dangerous places, and the truth she finds has an unexpected and shattering impact on her own life.


5+ Stars–Compelling Stand-alones that are easy to follow and difficult to put down. Interesting storyline with realistic procedures, actions and reactions. These are not light-hearted, cozy mysteries. There is no graphic brutality, sex or drag-you-down drama. Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking and snarky dialogue.

All three mysteries in the Leah Nash Series are excellent. I’m so glad I found this author. She develops her characters so well that you feel they could be individuals you know. Plus there are twists and turns that certainly keep you interested in turning the next page. Can’t wait to begin reading her next mystery.

I really enjoyed these books! They are well written, and keep the suspense going, plus the characters have real life problems! I look forward to more.

I read the first Leah Nash novel and then found books 2 and 3. I love a good mystery and the boxed set is a great bargain.
