Genre – Cozy Mystery, Mystery
Beck O’Rourke’s younger sister Lizzie has cajoled her into taking tennis lessons at a ritzy racquet club in the middle of the summer in South Florida.

But things get serious when one of the racquet club’s pros is killed by a hit-and-run driver. Beck takes advantage of her inside knowledge of the tennis club to try to help handsome police detective Devon Mathis catch the killer.
A Tennis Pro To Die For is the third standalone mystery in the Cozy Mysteries To Die For series. The series follows Beck O’Rourke and her grandmother, Miss Alice, who own Beach Reads bookstore and coffee shop, a gathering place for locals and tourists a block off the ocean in Manatee Beach, Florida. They live above the bookstore with Beck’s feisty younger sister, Lizzie, a lifeguard.
Beck is determined to follow her lifelong dream of being a detective, but the amateur sleuth keeps butting heads with handsome Manatee Beach Police Department detective Devon Mathis. Will she have to give up one passion for the other?

Then things go from dead to worse when she and all the suspects are stuck in the victim’s home during the worst snowstorm her little town has seen in decades. Now she’ll need more than a prayer to discover the truth behind who wanted the victim out of the picture … and to stay alive herself. To complicate matters, her strained relationship with her cousin, who just happens to be the attending officer, threatens to ruin the whole investigation. Can Margot and her cousin set aside their differences and bring a killer to justice? Or will the real reason behind the murder haunt Margot as much as her past?

Appearances can be deceiving. And in Southern California, where the sun shines almost every day and make-believe has its own industry, it’s hard to tell what is real and what is merely illusion. Two inquiries come to MDPI on the same day that seem like fairly straight-forward missing person cases. But it doesn’t take long to discover there’s nothing ordinary about the disappearance of two beautiful sisters from Minnesota and an estranged heiress who has never touched her eight-figure fortune.

While Madeline’s partner, Mike Delaney, heads down to Los Angeles to search for his cousin’s vanished girlfriend and her sister, Madeline heads to San Luis Obispo in hopes of picking up a twelve-year-old trail at a Catholic boarding school. Their separate pursuits lead them into a world where a frightening reality hides behind a glossy veneer. With several lives hanging in the balance, Mike and Madeline are faced with daunting odds and ruthless criminals who will kill to keep what they have taken.

She writes general fiction and mystery-suspense novels, as well as some non-fiction. “Once Upon A Lyme…A Tale of Two Journey” documents her harrowing odyssey through late-stage Lyme disease and the unexpected upside of becoming a writer.
