Secrets. It all begins with secrets. A long-held secret is about to implode with potentially catastrophic results.

It’s St. Paddy’s Day, and Shay O’Hanlon is finishing her shift at the Rabbit Hole, anticipating the grand reopening of her father’s bar, the Leprechaun. Two suspicious-looking strangers show up at the Hole demanding to speak to Eddy Quartermaine, the closest person Shay has to a mother. That visit sparks a firestorm spanning twenty-five years in a deadly mix of love gone wrong, stolen money, murder, and betrayal.

Will Shay and her sister Lisa pay the ultimate price for Eddy’s sins, or will Eddy confront her twenty-five year secret head-on before time runs out?

I’m SO freaking excited! Check out this lead-up to the book release told from Shay’s perspective on Dru’s Book Musings. Then Dru herself plowed through the book, and had these awesome words to say! Another amazing blogger I adore is Kristopher Z. of Bolo Blogs, and he found some comfort in Shay’s zany crazy, world after Orlando. Check out here. Ethan Boatner, book reviewer extraordinaire for Lavender, the Twin Cities LGBT magazine, had this to say. CHECK OUT the coolest trailer ever for Blood Money here, thanks to Bella!

If you’re so moved to check out Blood Money, it can be purchased from Bella as a print or ebook in all versions, from Amazon or B&N as a print book, and autographed hard-copy books can also be ordered from Once Upon a Crime Mystery Bookstore, my home indie book shop.

SECRET PROJECT ANTHOLOGY: Bella will release this awesome anthology at the Golden Crown Literary Society Annual Con in DC! I can’t tell you much about it except show you this teaser for the cover. You KNOW you’re gonna want it! There’s something about a Purple Monkey by me and super awesome romantic stories by so many of my fav writers!

And then the fun continues: I’ve also got a Shay and company short story coming out any day now in the anthology COOKED TO DEATH called Red Velvet Cake to Die For. Murder is just the icing on the cake!

Another new project I have coming out very soon from Ylva is Evolution of an Art Thief, book four in the Law Game Series! It’s a novella that introduces my Art Thief series, from Bella sometime in 2017, I think. Check out the cover—it’s very cool!

  1. Congrats Jessie. Would love one of these lovely books. Though I must say, I believe, I’m one behind on the Shay series (must go in order)! Looks like you’ve been busy …
