The first book in my Malone mystery series, Mixed Messages, is FREE today through Tuesday.
Here's an excerpt from the book:
Ann went directly to her grandmother’s grave and stooped down to clear away the debris that covered the inscription on the tombstone. She heard a noise behind her that sounded like light footsteps making their way through the dried leaves and twigs. She glanced over her shoulder, expecting to see one of the neighborhood kids. She knew that they often cut through the woods, taking a shortcut from the street that ran behind them. But there was no one there.
It’s probably just your imagination,” she said out loud but, when the sun went behind a cloud, she shivered. Then, she heard the noise again. She stood up quickly, nervously surveying the surrounding area. All of a sudden, a black cat sprang from the woods, startling her, and darted past her. She was so relieved that she laughed out loud.
As she turned back toward her grandmother’s grave, she noticed a mound of freshly dug earth a few feet away. Curious, she went over and looked down. Her eyes opened wide and her hands flew to her mouth to stifle a scream. There, printed in bold black paint on a large rock were the words, “FUTURE HOME OF ANN KERN.”
