JEANNE ADAMS will read from DEADLY CHARMS, her most recent release.
Who is the woman with the charm bracelet and why is someone trying to kill her?
Murder and espionage are fairly common in Washington, DC, but when DOD Contractor Dr. Robert Jackson and his fiancée, Mira Alexander go missing from his posh home in a gated community, it's news. With two dead thugs, and a dead woman in his house, it's obviously foul play, and national security could be compromised. However, no one connects the battered Jane Doe, wearing only a charm bracelet and dumped in lonely, isolated Bannion County, Virginia, with the high-powered tech politics of Washington, DC.
With reluctant help from local jeweler Suzanne Packe, Bannion County Sheriff Reece Bowen must unravel the identity of the unconscious Jane Doe through the only clue he has - her heavy, ornate silver charm bracelet. But the killer is working to find her as well. The killer will use her as leverage to get Dr. Jackson to give up technical secrets, or as proof that the killer will do anything - including killing Mira - to get what he wants. Can Reece and Suzanne identify her in time to protect her? With the FBI and Homeland Security closing in, can the killer get to Robert and Mira, and carry out his plan? Sparks fly and national security hangs in the balance as Suzanne and Reece work together to uncover Mira's identity before the killer finds her...

An unlikely encounter…but he’ll take it!
It seems like fate…or something! When Miles Brislenn spies the girl he had a crush on in high school-at his ex-wife’s wedding, no less-he can’t let the opportunity pass. He might not have had the courage to talk to Renia Milek back then, but he definitely does now. And that’s not the only thing that’s changed. Gone is the rebel Renia used to be. In her place is a beautiful woman who’s reserved, cautious…and holding on to secrets. For Miles, this second chance with Renia is too important to let her past stand in their way. He’ll do whatever is necessary to help her accept her choices and move on-even if that means a salsa lesson or two! Because now that he’s made the first move, he wants the second to be hers.
