Hot to Kill - Book 2

She’s literally getting away with murder…

Madeline Simpson is hot, sticky, and pissed off.

But the cops have their hands full with a series of sexual assaults…

Feeling above the law, Madeline aims to teach her biggest offenders a lesson. While her pranks take a dark and dangerous turn, Madeline begins to suspect the true identity of the serial sex offender.

To catch the culprit, Madeline will have to go it alone… or risk unburying her deadly secrets.

A little more about Hot to Kill

This book was influenced by my own menopause experiences, though while I felt like killing someone, I absolutely didn’t! You’ll find the story full of British colloquialisms as middle-aged Madeline Simpson navigates her way through an English summer heat wave and her hot flushes ­– finding solace with the air-conditioning in Marks & Spencer. It will strike a chord with many.

In this story we see more of DS Amanda Lacey and her work partner Jack Rutherford, and take a look into her personal life as she investigates what seems to be a missing person case. Then she meets Madeline Simpson. What could possibly go wrong?

People ask me why Amanda is gay and I say, she just is. I didn’t plan her to be just as I didn’t plan her not to be, it simply felt right for her. Love doesn’t discriminate who it picks and when, it happens when things align, as they did here for Amanda and her partner.
