"Her Three Lives"

Jade Thompson is an up-and-coming social media influencer with a beautiful new home and successful fiancé. But there's trouble. Greg's suburban Connecticut upbringing isn't an easy match with her Caribbean roots.
Then a savage home invasion leaves Greg with a brain injury and glued to the feeds from his security cameras. As police investigate, Jade begins to wonder what Greg may know about their attackers.
Greg becomes convinced Jade's behavior is suspicious and wonders whether the break-in was really random. And whether he's worth more to Jade dead than alive. Purchase at https://amzn.to/3uLcteu.

"Imaginative, unique, spine-tingling," says New York Times bestselling author Sandra Brown.
Like the chilling psychological thriller, "The Silent Patient," "Ruby Falls" is a nail-biting tale of a fragile young actress, the new husband she barely knows, and her growing suspicion that the secrets he harbors may eclipse her own.
In this thrilling and twisty homage to Daphne du Maurier's "Rebecca," the story ricochets through the streets of Los Angeles, a dangerous marriage to an exotic stranger, and the mind of a young woman whose past may not release her. "Secrets abound in this bang of a book, a haunting tale … a stunner with serious Gothic vibes," says bestselling author Kimberly Belle. Purchase at https://amzn.to/3rfKLEF.
