Fashionably Late by Lisa Q. Mathews
When a classy fashion-show luncheon turns deadly, the Ladies Smythe & Westin are back on the case
It’s murder she wore…
Sporting a chic Florida outfit and designer baubles, seasoned model Angelica Downs belonged on the runway…not in the morgue. Summer Smythe and Dorothy Westin are determined to retrace her final moments—right up to her desperate plea for help.
The Ladies pin their suspects down to just a few questionable characters. But why would anyone target such a seemingly sweet, lovely woman?
To lure the murderer—and perhaps some accessories of the criminal kind—the Ladies hit Milano Fashion Week, even organizing their own charity event at Hisbiscus Pointe. Killer fashion may be this season’s drop-dead look, but Summer and Dorothy will be wearing little black funeral dresses if they don’t pin down the culprit soon.

But Ethan’s got no intention of trusting any woman with his heart. Until he lets beautiful Holly into his world…and discovers she is the only woman he’d really like to make his wife!
His Secret Alaskan Heiress by Belle Calhoune
For heiress Sophie Mattson, moving to remote Love, Alaska, offers her a chance to find people who care about her—not her wealth.

Hired by Sophie’s ex-fiancé to keep tabs on her, undercover private investigator Noah is falling for his assignment.

For Love of a Dog by Janice Carter
A soldier’s best friend?
Army captain Luca Rossi hasn’t forgotten the dog who saved his life in Afghanistan. He just didn’t expect to be reunited with him on an Ohio soybean farm. Kai Westfield, the photojournalist who agreed to transport Amigo back to the States, has a different future in mind for the mutt that’s bringing her orphaned nephew out of his grief. This tranquil, beautiful place is also healing the wounded soldier…and Kai deserves credit, too. But she’s only holding down the fort here until her dad recovers his good health; she can’t wait to get back to the big city. Can Luca summon the strength to stop Kai—and the peaceful life he envisions with her—from slipping away for good?
