5_21 KillShotCoverArtFormer combat medic Kory Wagner survived four war zones. Now she’s home and out of the Army for good and someone is trying to kill her in her own backyard. Just as disturbing is the handsome sheriff who’s on the case. Sheriff Sean Harding doesn’t quite know what to think of the decorated veteran that managed to outsmart an entire search party. What bothers him more is the body of a PI, whom she hired, was found dead in a building she owns. And Kory isn’t being very cooperative with helping him find the answers as to why someone would kill her sister and want her dead. Will he be able to keep her alive along enough to discover the truth?


Sean followed the trail of blood to the back of the warehouse. She had definitely been hit — question was how bad? Was she the one who called in the shooting? If so he didn’t blame her for not sticking around, not when someone was trying to kill her. He was surprised she called the police at all.

He stepped out into the late afternoon sunlight. The last traces of blood were found halfway between the building and the edge of the woods. There wasn’t any skid marks in the side parking lot indicating a hasty retreat, and there were no casings. Did the shooter have an accomplice waiting at the back door just in case, or did she manage to escape into the woods?

Deputy McKee joined Sean at the edge of the woods. “Find anything?”

“No. The blood trail ends over there. Judging from the distance between droplets she was running at a pretty good pace.”

“There’s only one car in the parking lot. Do you think they came together, or did she park back here?”

“They either came together or she came in soon after he did thru the front door. The trajectory of the bullets suggests she was near the front of the building when she was hit and exited through the back door.”

“So she either managed to make it back to her car near the front of the building or she’s on foot,” the deputy said.

Sean looked toward the tree line. “If I were her and I had someone shooting at me I’d head for the woods. More places to hide than on a highway. Assemble a search team and have them start looking just in case. And notify the local hospital to be on the lookout for her. If she comes in I want her held for questioning.”

    Thanks for the excerpt. Just looking at all your books on your website and I was wondering how you came about writing inspirational romantic suspense stories.

    • Hi Karen, thanks so much for your question.
      I had been writing romantic suspense for a while, struggling with keeping my books clean and arguing with editors who wanted spicer, when I read a Dee Henderson book and loved it. By the end of the O’Malley series I knew that was the type of books I wanted to write.

    How did you research for this novel?

    • Kory, the main character in Kill Shot, was inspired by a friend of mine who was a medic in the army. I also talked to other veterans for the series. I now have a whole new respect for our military. Most of us do not realize the personal sacrifices they make and the problems they face once they return home.

  9. It’s been an intriguing tour so far!


  10. Maria D. says:

    Thanks for the excerpt – this is definitely on the buy list for me – will you be writing any more books featuring these characters? Developing this into a suspense series?

    junegirl63 at gmail dot com

    • Thanks for your question, Maria. Yes, these characters do show up briefly in other books in the series so you can see what’s been going on in thier lives. There are a total of five books under contract. Book three, Betrayal, was released a couple of months ago. If you enjoy Kill Shot you don’t want to miss it :).

  11. Nice excerpt
