It’s Diagnosis Murder meets All Creatures Great and Small…

As a house-call vet, Ginny Reese has seen her share of the weird and wacky. But nothing in her previous experience could have prepared her to find one of her clients floating in her own swimming pool.

Local artist Amanda Kelly was extremely wealthy with her share of secrets. By naming Ginny as her heir, not only did she make Ginny the number one suspect, but she painted a big bull’s eye on her friend’s back as well.

With her trusty German Shepherd at her side, it’s up to Ginny to find the real killer and prove her innocence to the sheriff. The new sheriff. Who happens to be her ex.

Piece of cake, right?


An Embarrassment of Itches was named best cozy mystery by the PRG Reviewer’s Choice Awards, the Best Indie Book Awards, and winner of the Distinguished Cozy Mystery Award. It was a runner up in the RONE Awards, and a finalist in the Silver Falchion Awards. It is currently a finalist in the Murder and Mayhem Awards.

Kirkus Reviews called An Embarrassment of Itches “a well-paced and entertaining series opener with an appealing protagonist.”

In The Dog Days of Murder (Ginny Reese Mysteries Book 2) life couldn’t be better for house-call veterinarian, Ginny Reese. An impending inheritance has given her options she didn’t have before, and she is about to close the deal on buying her own practice from her longtime mentor. Not to mention, she’s been spending more time with her old flame, Sheriff Joe Donegan.

But the fur flies when the practice is bought out from under her by a smoking hot newcomer who also has ties to Joe. And things get really dicey when Ginny’s outrageous mother is heard making threats against Dr. Rachel Burnham.

When the new vet dies under suspicious circumstances, all fingers point to Ginny’s mom as the primary suspect. It’s up to Ginny and her trusty German Shepherd, Remy, to find the real killer before her mother goes down for murder.
