When grieving relatives hire Sadie and her employee, ex-cop Zack Bowman, to clean up after the murder-suicide of Trudy and Grant Toth, Sadie figures she’s bound to meet at least one chatty ghost. But Kent, the man Sadie first encounters at the scene, is very much alive—so much so, that Sadie soon finds herself agreeing to a date with him.
Then a real ghost shows up—the oddly silent spirit of Trudy, who seems determined to prove her husband’s innocence, and inspires Sadie to track down the real killer. But as she scours the crime scene, Sadie quickly realizes she's in way over her head, that Kent has a strange connection to the dead couple, and that someone wants her to give up the ghost…for good.
Red Hooper’s never been what you’d call lucky, but searching for coffee and finding a dead body instead takes things to a whole other level. Even worse, she and her camper van, Bubbles, just rolled into town, and being the new girl makes her suspect number one.
Red never lingers in one place for long—she’s got secrets better left undiscovered—and this time she’s definitely overstayed her welcome. Caught in the crosshairs of a police investigation and creeping to the top of the real murderer’s to-do list, Red will have to plant some roots if she’s going to survive.
Easier said than done. It seems like everyone in town has made up their mind about Red…except the mysterious Noah Adams. The gruff townie might be the key to proving her innocence—if he doesn’t bring even more trouble her way. Together they unravel the mystery surrounding the murder, but Red will be forced to embrace her psychic gifts if she’s going to clear her name before the real murderer snuffs her out.
A Red Hooper Mystery
Book 1: Burning Hope
Sadie and her sexy partner Zack find themselves knee-deep in trouble on their latest job when they stumble over evidence of a chilling cult ritual in an abandoned meth lab where Sadie comes face to face with an evil spirit unlike any she's ever seen before. And it’s no coincidence that a depleted stash of stolen cash turns up at her next crime scene just in time to convince a gang of meth-deprived bikers that Sadie made off with their money.
With a hell-raising band of bikers hot on her heels, Sadie has to act fast. She knows the threads are all connected—but how? It’s a shock to discover that everything is linked back to her own family—and a secret so dark it makes gossiping with ghosts look like child’s play…
Sadie’s going through a rough time. Since her dad passed away, she's had to juggle her widowed mother, her lying boyfriend, Zack, her struggling business—and the fact that her father’s spirit is reluctant to move on. Now, on top of all that, Zack’s former flame has hired her to dig out the home of her hoarder mother. And that's when things get messy.
Because in this house, Sadie finds some unexpected things. Like the seventeen-year-old mummified remains of an infant—along with a very angry ghost who seems determined to keep Sadie away. Then, aided by a team of her fellow psychics, Sadie unearths something even more terrifying: a host of secrets that someone will kill to keep buried...
With business slow, her mortgage payment looming, and her relationship with on-again off-again boyfriend Zack somewhere in limbo, Sadie could use a drink and a little rejuvenating R&R. But when women start getting killed in fancy hotels, Sadie suddenly finds herself back to work and her business back in the black.
Posh hotels are much nicer accommodations than her usual crime scenes, but soon perks turn to peril and Sadie gets caught in the killer’s web. Now, Sadie has to figure out the identity of the Seattle Slasher, before he comes for her next…
