24-Carat Murder 

The first book in the Mack Dearling series pits Mack against a huge New York banking firm and the world's largest gold mining company. And Mack had moved from Bellingham, Washington, to the Yukon to get away from it all! 

The murder trail grows steep and the home fires grow hot after Lara Towne, the new school teacher, moves into Mack's B & B.  In order to win her, Mack must learn a new approach to romance, but that starts looking like a one-way street with Mack driving the wrong way. Things really heat up when he discovers that Lara's past holds secrets which easily match his own staggering flaws. 

As the body count grows to darken Mack's world, he wonders if he can win against such powerful foes. And as the tensions escalate between Mack and Lara, Mack wonders if he even wants to win this beautiful woman's generous but extremely quirky heart.


24-Carat Murder is a constantly moving story. There are no "dry spots." The characters are realistic, believable. It is very enjoyable and does not take a back seat to any other authors I've read - and for the past few years, I've been reading Clive Cussler, Tom Clancy, James Patterson, and Michael Connelly.  - Marcel Chorel

I became very involved with all the characters and cared what happened to them - so much so that I got quite upset when one of my favorite characters was killed by the villains.The book was well written, fast paced and exciting - with humour and passion included! - Karen in Calgary

Loved it very much from start to finish. I could not put it down. Characters (were) very appealing.  - Florence Mayfield
