Ann’s World – April 2017


New Book! New Book! New Book!

I’ve been a busy bee this spring, along with all the other little yellow and black flying pollinators. For starters, I have a brand spanking new ebook out that is packed with action/adventure, mystery, suspense, and plenty of heat. (Add the sound of screeching monkeys and buzzing insects here.)

AVAILABLE NOW as an ebook! Quint Parker is back in another Dig Site Mystery Series full-length novel called Make No Bones About It.

“This dig site isn’t cursed. It’s doomed!”

BUY links can be found on the Dig Site Series page on my website.

(In addition to ebook format, this book will be available in print very soon. You can check back on my website for updated links over the next week or two. The audio version will be released in a few months.)

Make no Bones Cover 300

Welcome back to the jungle, a treacherous place teeming with terrible secrets better left buried.

Ancient History … A small civilization in the Maya jungle suffered a mysterious, bloody ending.

Recent History … A world-renown Mesoamerican archaeologist dug too deep in the same place and wound up dead.

Present Day … Dr. Angélica García has returned to the site of her mother’s death much to the displeasure of Quint Parker, the visiting photojournalist out to win her heart. While Angélica struggles to unearth the secrets behind the Maya site’s dark past, Quint battles to keep the gutsy “Boss Lady” from sharing her mother’s fate.

Will the two manage to unravel the disturbing truth hiding amongst the dig site’s bones before history repeats itself?.
