A Green Thumb

Abbey Rhoads may have finally accepted hunky handyman Max Edison as her boyfriend, but the ex-FBI Forensics Profiler and now college professor refuses to believe her new best friend, Sunny, is a killer.  The police think Sunny has something to do with her much detested next door neighbor turning up dead. The two had an ongoing feud the whole town talked about, after all, and Sunny herself had said publicly how she wished the purple house painting woman would just drop dead.

But Abbey notices a recent trend of supposedly accidental poisonings, overlooked as not all are fatal and caused by common toxic plants. She suspects it’s much more than a coincidence the town and the nearby Canadian city of Victoria share.

While Abbey knows she should be working harder on her romance with Max, she also knows she can’t stand by while a serial poisoner continues to sicken and kill people in two countries – and is it her fault the investigation comes conveniently when Max wants to talk about a more serious commitment and she wants to avoid just such a conversation at all costs?

"Lori Lyn transports readers to the beautiful town of Port Angeles in this fabulous romantic suspense. I've been lucky enough to visit this lovely place and I swear with every word I was there yet again. I felt an instant connection with Abbey Rhoads and I admired her bravery for starting life over, alone and in a strange place. I was happy to see that she wasn't so young but rather mature and yet she still had her flaws. That she was far from perfect made it all the easier for me to feel invested in her and the hunt for the killer. Max was as easy to admire and I loved watching them dance around one another. I loved being able to follow along the investigation and feel thoroughly involved. I was fascinated with ever piece of evidence every second of the process and especially with every new twist or revelation. I enjoyed the feeling I get with a cozy mystery as I read this but the suspense and storyline had an added seriousness that I found fascinating. The relationships in this story were so authentic, I loved how everyone interacted with one another and that small town dynamics had so much influence on the personal and professional connections. If you are looking for a solid suspense I highly recommend you pick this one up.

Abbey Rhoads decides to retire from the FBI and move to the Pacific Northwest looking to have a life instead of just a career however before she even has time to settle in to her new job a serial killer threatens her adoptive home and she uses her forensic profiling skills to help the local law. As the number of victims climbs Abbey finds herself becoming attached to the case, her neighbors and especially her handyman but will the killer take everything from her?"  ~  Pauline Michael, NOR

 An Abbey Rhoads (slightly humorous) Thriller Series


Retired FBI Forensic Profiler & East Coast transplant, Abbey Rhoads, is still annoyed with herself as she hasn’t been able to figure out where the killer’s trophies are stashed from the string of murders she just solved in her newly adopted town of Port Angeles, Washington.

They’re feet, after all, so where the hell could over a dozen be hidden?

Tired of her grousing about her seeming “failure”, her general contractor lover, Max, encourages her to check out an odd story about a man murdered in a town with the same name as him. It should be just the thing to distract her overly analytical mind.

The story does indeed intrigue Abbey, especially when she discovers repeat patterns of people having the same first name as the town their bodies are found in scattered throughout Washington State over the last several years.

Abbey’s determined to crack the case, even if she’s the only person who thinks there is one. So determined, controlling Abbey hits the road with her four month old puppy, leaving Max in complete charge of the continuing renovations of her home.

Proving there is an obvious pattern to the killings gives the former FBI Agent no solace. Her forensic profiling abilities, which may have earned her the coveted Bill Bass Award upon graduation from the academy, are failing her and she can’t zone in on her profile of the murderer. And that means more deaths heaped on her shoulders.

Her mother arriving to spend the holiday season with her in a house that is a construction zone only adds to Abbey’s stress and desire to escape back into a world of factual science, a world devoid of emotional upheaval. But while personal detachment may help her hunt down the killer, it certainly won’t make the holiday season in her new home town with her new boyfriend a smashing success – and it won’t stop her mother from questioning if she is finally going to have a son-in-law.
