Here’s what you will find in Old Loves Die Hard:

What does a homicide detective do with all his spare time when he comes into a multi-million dollar inheritance and a luxurious estate on Deep Creek Lake? If you’re Mac Faraday, you pursue the lifestyle of a millionaire playboy between solving mysteries.

In Old Loves Die Hard, I continue the rags-to-riches story of Mac Faraday, an underpaid homicide detective who inherits two-hundred-and-seventy million dollars and an estate on Deep Creek Lake, Maryland, from his birth mother on the day his divorce becomes final.

I placed the Mac Faraday mysteries on Deep Creek Lake, where she and her family often vacation, because the resort area struck her as the perfect location for a detective. Deep Creek has everything I love to find in a mystery. From a diversity of characters to locations either up on the mountain or down on the lake. Deep Creek has it all.

In Old Loves Die Hard, I pick up where she left off in It’s Murder, My Son. Mac Faraday is settling nicely into his new life at Spencer Manor when his ex-wife Christine shows up—and she wants him back! Before Mac can send her packing, Christine and her estranged lover are murdered in Mac’s private penthouse suite at the Spencer Inn, the five-star resort built by his ancestors.

The investigation leads to the discovery of cases files for some of Mac’s murder cases in the room of the man responsible for destroying his marriage. Why would his ex-wife’s lover come to Spencer to dig into Mac’s old cases?

With the help of his new friends on Deep Creek Lake, Mac must use all of his detective skills to clear his name and the Spencer Inn’s reputation, before its five-stars—and more bodies—start dropping!

Old Loves Die Hard is available for Free on Amazon Wednesday, August 29 through Friday, August 31.

Tyler’s Mountain Magic by Malcolm Ater.

Named by the West Virginia Writers, Inc. as the best book length story for 2011, Tyler’s Mountain Magic is the heartwarming true story of Tyler Moore, a teenage boy with cystic fibrosis who tries to inspire his Harpers Ferry team to a seemingly impossible 40-0 state record. Author Malcolm Ater, Tyler’s wrestling coach, recounts in his award-winning book about the profound effect Tyler had not only on him, but his teammates, friends, and everyone who knew him. “The climax of this novel is not about Tyler’s dream to reach an unprecedented goal,” Ater says, “but rather how this boy has a lasting effect on his small town and the people around him.”

When Tyler first goes out for the Harpers Ferry Junior High wrestling team in 1997, it makes everyone wonder why. Not only is wrestling a very demanding sport, the little school has never had a winning season in anything. But Tyler knows that time is not on his side and dreams of achieving something that has never been done before, to be remembered.

For three years, Tyler convinces his teammates who live on Blue Ridge Mountain that if they all stick together, they can have their lives marked forever by what they do. What happens during their last year is still talked about today, both the good and the bad. As Tyler strives to fulfill what everyone says is an impossible dream, the boys learn about friendship and courage and hanging on to what is truly important.

Tyler’s Mountain Magic is available free on Amazon Wednesday, August 29-Thursday, August 30.
