The Resort, the fourth novella in the Sara Connolly Mystery series, has just been published!

For a sneak preview, here’s the first chapter:

“I’m coming for you.” The whispering voice resonated through her body sending a chill from her feet to her head.

She could feel drops of a warm sticky liquid trickling down her neck like tears on a cheek. What was he waiting for? Get it over with, she thought. Should she fight or had he finally won.

“No,” she heard herself say out loud as she wiggled in his arm that was tightly holding her. “You can’t have me without a fight.” She threw her elbow back and her foot stomped on the instep of his foot. He held tight and laughed.

“Nice try, Sara. In some ways I hate to kill you. You’re the kind of woman I could almost admire,” he whispered in her ear causing her to pull her head away from his mouth.

“My husband will hunt you down.”

“I look forward to it. Then he can join you in hell.”

Sara twisted and turned as the flow of blood from her neck grew. “Matt …” she whispered. Then she was still. It was over.

“Sara … Sara wake up. You’re having another dream,” Matt said as he pulled her into his arms and rocked her. Tears were running down her face and onto her neck and shoulders. “It’s okay honey. I’ll protect you. We won’t let him near you.” He squeezed her tighter and gently wiped away her tears. “I’ll hold you while you go to sleep.”

The Resort is available in eBook format on Amazon, Google Play, Smashwords, and other online retailers for a wide variety of devices including Kindle, iPad, and Android.
