Manuscripts and Murder ~ Book 1 

Madison Kramer thought her past was behind her. With a new name and a career as a bestselling author, what could go wrong?

She never expected Trevor Lockhardt to walk into her book signing, offering his services as her publicist, or that she’d end up falling for him. But what she really didn’t expect was a stalker sending her messages, both written and in the form of dead bodies.

Madison can’t escape her parents’ murder any longer. But is it their killer coming to finish what he started fifteen years ago? Or is she wrapped up in yet another murder case?





Sequels and Serial Killers ~ Book 2

Madison Kramer’s life is finally coming together. With her boyfriend and publicist, Trevor, by her side, her career as a best-selling author is sure to really take off.

But one thing hasn’t changed. Death follows Maddie wherever she goes, and a night that should have been nothing but celebrating the New Year in the arms of the man she loves, turns into the scene of another murder.

The bodies are piling up, and the murder suspect wants Maddie’s help in freeing his name. Her secret past continues to come to the surface, putting her life at risk in a deadly investigation where Maddie doesn’t know whom she can trust.



Fiction and Felonies ~ Book 3

Madison Kramer can’t escape her past no matter how hard she tries. Coming clean about her true identity only spurs fans to lash out at her. But one threatening message stands out as so much more than just an irate fan.

Someone is playing games with Maddie. Someone who knows a lot more about her than what she’s told the public. She can’t run from her past anymore. This killer is murdering everyone close to Maddie in order to get to her.

There’s nowhere left to hide. Nothing short of Maddie’s death will end this game.

What People Are Saying:

I so agree with previous reviewers about how suspenseful and surprising this book is. Those twists and turns came out of nowhere and any predictions I made about the stalker proved to be incorrect. I hope to see more suspense from this author.

This is one of those rare mystery-suspenses that actually keeps you guessing all the way to the end.

I haven't read a romantic supspense that has not only had me falling in love and swooning, while being anxious and terrified to be by myself in a long time, but Kelly Hashway... killed it.
