Southwest of Love and Murder, Book Two

Southwest of Love and Murder, Book Two by Brenda Whiteside

Writing murder mysteries is all in a day's work until an obsessed fan brings Phoebe's stories to life.

Mystery writer, Phoebe Anderson, owes her success to killing her first husband on paper seventeen years earlier. Now, someone has actually done it. When she decides to take a few days away on the ranch of her best friend’s brother-in-law, she doesn’t expect romance to find her...or murder to follow her.

Mason Meadowlark is happy with his wild cowboy ways, avoiding love since the death of his baby and the end of his marriage twenty years ago. When Phoebe shows up, he fights to control his emotions, but soon wonders if she just might be worth the risk of opening his heart again.

With an obsessed fan close on her heels, Phoebe is thrown into her own murder mystery…and the next target on his list is Mason.

WOW!!!...a ride you sure as heck don’t see coming! 5 Stars


The story is complex and the twists and turns are unexpected. I don't think it's like anything else within the same genre and that's what makes it stand out from the crowd. 5 Stars  ~ Samie Sands

Unabridged Andra

Violence may be easy to see and experience on paper and in the media, but when it comes to your doorstep, it changes a person and you can almost feel that change overtake Phoebe-a very cool character moment from Brenda!
