Shelley_RoughDayRough Day by Shelley Coriell

From critically acclaimed suspense and thriller author Shelley Coriell comes a brand new mystery series! Meet Detective Lottie King, a hard-driving homicide investigator with a soft spot for peach pie and her seven grandchildren.

But after a series of murder investigations leave her bruised and brokenhearted, is it finally time for this legendary homicide detective to retire? Features four mystery short stories and Lottie-inspired recipes.

Old Flame — The twelve-year-old grandson of an old high school crush hires Detective Lottie King to find out what happened to his grandfather who is missing and probably dead, but no one believes him.

Smooth Sailing — On the eve of her retirement, Detective Lottie King investigates one last case for Colorado Springs Police, an accidental drowning that turns out to be murder. But all is not smooth sailing…with the investigation or Lottie’s retirement.

A soon-to-be Lord of the New World, Drustan lives in self-imposed isolation in the Highlands of Scotland. Urged by his demon family to rule the temporal web, his greatest wish is to change his past and remake his life.
