At long last, Book #3 of the Loni Wagner Mystery Series is near publication!

Taking the Long Road Home

Devastated by the loss of her grandparents and the desertion of her girlfriend, Loni Wagner accepts a job offer and moves from Arizona to a coastal town in Oregon. As a police lieutenant with a small crew of detectives and a dispatcher, her days are routine and comfortable, that is, until her first lover, Jenna, reappears in her life. Loni and Jenna had spent two beautiful years together at Lewis and Clark College studying pre-law until one day Jenna left, and Loni never saw her again.

When Loni’s officers arrest Jenna for murder, Loni is not only shocked and curious, but she feels compelled to prove her innocent. The two head for a wild time in a dangerous tsunami of violence and treachery, facing unknown peril in unexpected places and an elusive someone who wants Jenna to rot in hell—with Loni beside her.
