Love Can Be Murder: New Romantic Mystery Series

Meet the new Nick and Nora Charles

of Silicon Valley,

Lee Alvarez and Gurn Hanson 

If you want something a little more romantic with your mysteries, the Love Can Be Murder Novellas may be just the tasty morsels you need.

Who Is Lee Alvarez?

With dark hair, twilight colored eyes and a fiery temper, Lee Alvarez is about as hard-boiled as a two-minute egg—but this Sam Spade fan wears Vera Wang. Discretionary Inquiries detective agency is bringing the noir detective novel to the modern setting of the San Francisco tech world. Now she and her new husband, Gurn Hanson, will be ferreting out suspects in Silicon Valley, as well as a slew of new locations. The first place she’ll be tucking clues into her Louie Vuitton bag is Hawaii and on her honeymoon!

Who Is Gurn Hanson?

The man with the impossible-to-remember first name, Gurn Hanson is an ex-Navy SEAL. Still a Lieutenant Commander in the Navy, he teaches NROTC whenever possible to give back to his country. He owns a self-sustaining CPA business, which functions also as a front for his frequent trips to Washington D.C. as an advisor to the Pentagon.  When this six-foot-two man with the green-gray eyes and square jawline met Lee, he knew he finally found his match in a woman. In the second of the Love Can Be Murder Mystery Novellas, the story is more homebound, a Portola Valley animal sanctuary. Gurn is happy to follow Lee’s lead wherever the case takes her. And as she often says, “He’s the smartest muscle man I know!”

Honeymoons Can Be Murder

When PI Lee Alvarez goes on her honeymoon with bridegroom, Gurn Hanson, they find a dead woman practically on their doorstep. Kauai breezes may be soft, but there are gale force winds of accusation against Gurn. Will Lee find the real killer before her new hubby gets sent to a Hawaiian hoosegow?

“Honeymoons Can Be Murder” is the perfect beach reading for honeymoons or Hawaiian vacations.

Marriage Can  Be Murder, the second in the Lee Alvarez Mystery Novellas.

Dolores de la Vega is a legend, not just in her own mind, but to the eight men who married her. Each discarded in turn, one or all of them seem to be trying to kill the sixty-eight-year-old actress, who admits only to the age of fifty-eight. What else is she not admitting? Maybe her abandoned-at-birth daughter? Wherever Lee Alvarez and hubby Gurn Hanson look, someone bears the wealthy lady ill-will. Speaking of wills, they are all in hers. And none of them will be sad if she dies.
