For the wonderful readers who have reached out about my other work after reading ONLY GIRL ALIVE, thank you. This is my first Crime Thriller (more to come) but I do write mysteries as Suzie Ivy. The Laci Jolett Police K9 books are based off real cases. They're on the light side but heavy on the same police procedural you found in Only Girl Alive. Suzie Goes to the Police Academy and Suzie Ivy Case Files are the humorous stories behind my real-life adventures of becoming an officer/detective during my mid-life crisis. If you read urban fantasy, you might also enjoy the Marinah and King series based in post-apocalyptic America. They aren't steamy like my earlier romances and have a great premise based on the imagined life of a friend's daughter. If you are interested in checking out my steamy romance, heat levels and trigger warnings are here. Thank you for the wonderful reviews and added encouragement you have given me to write more Eve Bennet thrillers.

silent and the door is firmly closed. Upstairs, the whole family lie cold and
