Breezee's Shared Custody

Divorce, Murder, and the Dog

Banker Dave Davis is arrested in the middle of the night, his dog Breezee the Basset Hound howling in protest as they're hauling him away. The charge? Killing his ex-wife’s boyfriend, who'd also been Dave’s boss. 


While Dave is languishing behind bars with his biker cellmate, his uncle, a former prosecutor, forms the defense team. Besides himself he has his old retired investigator, a former police detective turned part-time private eye, and Dave’s dog.


The DA believes they have the right man, but one of the detectives responsible for Dave’s incarceration does not. So she digs into the case without letting on how enamored she is with their handsome suspect. 


Will Dave ever see the light of day again? If not, will Breezee get visitation rights? Will the real killer ever be found? If so, will the smitten detective get her man? And whatever happened to Dave’s girlfriend, who vanished before he was arrested?

Baby Grand, Book 2

 

Kevin Johnson and his grandparents, plus his girlfriend Desiree and hers, are launching his racing career. They’re doing it on the sly so his stressed-out, on-the-brink-of-divorce parents won’t find out, but Kevin is getting a little stressed-out himself. Everyone expects him to continue the family legacy where his great-grandfather left off, but that was over eighty years ago. None of them had been alive during the Golden Age of Sports, when the legendary driver did miraculous things behind the wheel. How can Kevin live up to that?

Baby Grand Opportunity

Formerly titled Baby Grand III: The Big Time
 

Baby Grand, Book 3

 

Kevin Johnson signs up to drive for Baldacci racing, a partnership headed by football great Andy Baldacci. But Andy’s partners sell him out, leaving controlling interest with a company that Kevin wants nothing to do with. He’s under contract, though, and has no say in the matter. His girlfriend Desiree is even less pleased when she's sent packing and banned from being seen with him in public.


They can’t, however, stop Desiree from being with Kevin on his own time, but he's going on the road for extended periods. So Desiree pitches her chassis set-up skills to another team, to stay in the game and keep an eye on the competition … competition for Kevin. It isn’t that she doesn’t trust him; she just doesn’t trust the cute little driver she’ll be working for, or Kevin’s newly assigned personal assistant.

BoonieRats 

The first BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure


The BoonieRats Motorcycle Club didn’t start out as a criminal organization, but now they’re flying loads of marijuana in to northeastern Minnesota from Canada, then down to an old farm outside of the Twin Cities to make deliveries. Their customer wants as much as they can supply, and the money is good, but they don’t have enough free time as it is. They’re struggling with security at their remote airstrip and storage facility because of trespassers. Coincidentally, their leader Jake Olson just stopped a former dog scout handler from killing himself. He has the ability to create and manage a canine security force that would keep prying eyes away, so they have to give him a reason to live and turn him into an outlaw. 


First stand-alone novel in the series.

One Lowly Angel

The second BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure
 

Montana horse ranchers Jake Olson and Frank Schroeder reunite with their old BoonieRats Motorcycle Club brothers at the Sturgis, South Dakota motorcycle rally. In their absence, two career criminals—the scourge of the nearby Indian tribe—take what's dear to the ranchers. Making matters worse, they lure Jake’s wife into the wilderness to pay the ransom. But then they find an abandoned gold mine on Jake’s property, a mine Jake has never seen. The scoundrels hadn’t been certain whether they’d kill Olson’s woman or not when they’re done with her, but now they are. Leaving no witnesses will make a clean getaway more likely. The ransom money will be nice, but the gold will set them up for life. 


A strange former outlaw biker and his spooky little dog catch wind of the scheme and rush to stop it, unaware of the Native American shaman and his apprentice assassins who are waiting to make their move. A foxy grandmother undersheriff finds out something is amiss and gets on the case, too. One step behind them all but coming on fast is Jake Olson, armed with nerve and a .357 Magnum. Saddle-up for this mystical Wild West-like thriller that takes place not in the 1880s, but the 1980s.


Second stand-alone novel in the series.
