Getting Away with Murder



Who doesn’t like a good mystery?

As a writer of romantic suspense, I love coming up with ideas for a juicy mystery then planting clues throughout the book for readers to find. In fact, few things are more rewarding than when I hear someone tell me they were surprised when they found out who the bad guy in my story was. I know then I’ve crafted a good story.

But as a reader, I also love trying to solve the mystery. Finding the clues, piecing the puzzle together and trying to solve the case before the story’s reveal.

In my soon to be released LIS (6 more days til it releases, eek!) , COLD CASE COVER-UP, someone (I won’t say who because spoilers!) got away with murder for thirty years. They lived their lives and even prospered while others suffered because of their actions. My heroine, investigative reporter Dana Lang, believes she would have been one of the killer’s victims if it weren’t for a local sheriff who faked her death and whisked her safely out of town, leaving her on the doorstep of a church to be found and adopted. Now, an adult, Dana is back in her town of birth to solve the mystery of her parent’s murders and finally, after thirty long years, bring a killer to justice.





In reality, we may never see justice in this world, but in stories—at least in LI and LIS—the hero and heroine always win and the bad guys always gets what’s coming to them. And that’s how the story should always end.  



She’ll risk everything to uncover her past

The first thrilling Covert Operatives tale

An infant is believed to have been murdered thirty years ago—but investigative journalist Dana Lang is convinced she’s that baby. Now someone’s willing to kill to stop her investigation. And only secretive deputy Quinn Dawson, whose grandfather may have faked Dana’s death to protect her, can keep her safe. But a killer’s dead set on burying the past—and them—for good.

  1. Virginia, your book sounds exciting! I'm eager to read the story and find out why someone wanted to kill a little one. Great premise!

    I also loved your blurb. I can relate. I hoard books too! And I never want to part with them so I have bookcases full and piles everywhere of my favorites.

    This is such a cool concept. You can bet I'll love reading along trying to figure out who the villain is before you reveal it.

  9. I get so confused by all the similar titles in the LIS line. I can't remember which books I've read. I realize you are talking about your new book, but I've read a number of your previous books and can't remember the titles since I gave them away. I hate to buy books I've already read.

    1. LIS puts out a lot of books so I understand. I think it depends on where you get your books. This book does not release officially until Aug so if you've bought it from say Walmart or the like, it would have been very recently. They only stay on the shelves for about a month. If you purchased it from Amazon or the like, you can probably look at your purchase history to see if you've bought it before. Hope that helps!
