Twelve months ago, a violent injury ended Kate Park’s career with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission. Now she’s returned home to her little beach town to heal and, hopefully, mend the relationship with her estranged sister. But time is running out.

As the town preps for an approaching hurricane, Kate stumbles into a mystery—a series of murders with only one thing in common: a connection to her caustic sister. And in a brewing storm of rage, guilt, and childhood secrets, someone watches. Someone stalks. Something hides in the darkness.

Murder is the Word

When Tampa newscaster Tori Younger learns that her childhood friend committed suicide, she has no interest in returning to her rural home town to attend the services. However, cryptic text messages from the dearly departed’s cellphone change her mind.

Returning home, Tori follows the clues sent to her in the odd text messages until she learns that her friend didn’t commit suicide, but was murdered. No one in town believes her – or wants to believe her – and whoever is texting her these cryptic messages appears to be her only ally. Is her departed friend really reaching out to her, or is someone they knew playing a deadly game of HANGMAN?

21 Dares

What happens when a party game turns deadly?

For her 21st birthday, Abbie Reed’s friends throw her a surprise party and plan an outrageous game of 21 Dares. The rules are simple: Abbie must follow each dare to the letter as they pop-up on her phone–each one sent as a text message from a secret guest. Starting off funny, if not a little humiliating, the dares send Abbie and her friends across her college campus and through downtown Tampa. But the closer they get to the mystery man behind the text messages, the more deadly the dares become. Harboring a vendetta against Abbie, the mysterious guest won’t stop until she pays. Now, it’s up to Abbie to figure out who he is and what he wants, before her 21st birthday becomes her last.

Prey of Desire

They said the disappearance of two high school students over 25 years ago was a mystery that couldn’t be solved. No one ever said it shouldn’t be.

Following the abrupt end of a relationship, college student Kimberly Bradford finds comfort in the friendship with her over-the-top neighbor, Mallory. And, Mallory encourages her to get back out there. She would of course if it weren’t for the thrilling little love notes and poems she’s been receiving.

Kim thinks they’re from her ex-fiancee, not realizing he’s been murdered. Worse, whoever is sending her all the extra attention is not only in her inner-circle, but has a connection to an unsolved murder from 25 years ago. That connection puts her life in danger, and exposes secrets better left buried around her closest friends and family.
