Blood Money, the first novel in the Patty O'Donnell Mystery series, is now available from Mundania Press.
The back cover reads:
"When Patty O’Donnell married her Irish sweetheart and moved from America to her husband’s small home town on the Irish seacoast, the most dangerous things she had to deal with were the half-ton racehorses in her father-in-law’s stables. But when she and her husband return from a late night out to find their house being searched, she discovers there are far worse things lurking in her bucolic surroundings than temperamental Thoroughbreds.
"Suddenly, Patty finds herself hunted and in a fight for her life, where yielding to panic means a swift and ugly death."
The April 2010 issue of RT Book Reviews had this to say about Blood Money:
