An Unexpected Death: A Caitlyn Jamison Mystery

Unexpected Death cover 2

This face-paced story is set in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State. Caitlyn Jamison, a graphic artist, is making her way in the Washington, DC area. But when she learns of her cousin’s murder, she’s determined to see justice served. She leaves her comfortable life and travels to New York’s Finger Lakes region where she is faced with her estranged family and painful memories she had long since buried.

Against his better judgment, Sheriff Ethan Ewing acquiesces to Caitlyn’s request to assist in the investigation, though neither expected to be confronted with another murder, environmental issues, politics and fraud as they worked together to solve an unexpected death.

Fatal Dose: A Caitlyn Jamison Mystery

Graphic artist Caitlyn Jamison is back in scenic Riverview, New York, working on a winery photo shoot—and hoping to reconnect with Sheriff Ethan Ewing. But the sheriff has a serious situation on his hands: an undercover agent posing as a professor disappears on the same morning a college student is found dead. When Caitlyn learns the missing man is her friend’s uncle, and against Ethan’s wishes, she insists on helping with the investigation.

Meanwhile, Caitlyn’s Aunt Myra hears about a different kind of mystery from her friend, retired teacher Verna Adams. Verna is searching for her long-lost brother, who once lived on the abandoned road where the student’s body was discovered. As Riverview’s town historian uncovers the unsettling truth about Verna’s brother, Caitlyn and Ethan defy the town’s officials and keep their investigation going—with dangerous consequences.

Caitlyn’s investigation is not without peril, as she learns the small rural town of Ingram, Virginia is full of conspirators. But what are they hiding?
