French Vanilla & Felonies, Cambria Clyne Mystery
When Cambria Clyne—klutzy, twenty-something single mom—takes the job of an apartment manager at an LA complex, she hopes her run of bad luck is finally coming to an end. She’s got a nice home for her daughter, a steady source of income, and the cute maintenance guy is certainly a nice perk! But her luck takes a bad turn again when a dead body turns up, a crime spree takes over the community, and Cambria finds her complex squarely at the center of it all!
With her dream job suddenly on the line, Cambria dons her detective hat to get to the truth—after all, she’s watched enough crime shows on TV to know how to catch a perp! Or so she hopes as she wades through a streaker in apartment 40, an ex-con with a shady agenda, an overly frisky retired couple, and the suspiciously sneaky dealings of the dentist in apartment 36. But will Cambria be able to catch a killer… or will she get caught up in his game and lose it all?
Rocky Road & Revenge, Cambria Clyne Mystery
From author Erin Huss comes another “hilarious and fun” (Huffington Post) addition to the Cambria Clyne Mysteries.
For apartment manager, Cambria Clyne, every day is a bad hair day and her birthday is no exception. At least the rest of her life is in order. Her daughter is thriving in their new home, Cambria is up for a promotion at work, and she’s got two men vying for her attention—the hunky ex-maintenance man and her dreamy baby daddy. As if that wasn’t enough excitement, Cambria’s best friend, Amy, has just landed the role of a lifetime on the hit primetime drama Ghost Confidential. Yes, things are looking up for Cambria Clyne, and this just might be her best birthday yet!
Until it all goes up in flames.
Celebrations are put aside when the stars from Ghost Confidential start showing up dead. There’s a killer with a personal vendetta on the loose, and when suspicious items show up in Amy’s possession, it becomes evident that someone is trying to pin the murders on her. Now Cambria must figure out who is attempting to frame her best friend, all the while still taking care of her daughter, dealing with the crazy antics of her residents, choosing between two men, and preparing for a property inspection that could make or break her apartment management career. Will Cambria catch the killer before anyone else shows up dead? Or will this birthday be her last?
Out June 26th.

Missing or Murdered (100% complete. Details coming)
Amelia Clark—a twenty-three-year-old personal assistant—believes her run of bad luck is over when she’s invited to the company’s annual management gala. What an excellent opportunity to rub elbows with the top execs, enjoy a free meal, and take her mind off her recent break-up. But the night takes an unfortunate turn when Amelia has an embarrassing meltdown, and the whole thing is captured on video, posted to YouTube, and now millions are laughing at her (not with her).
One week later, Amelia goes missing. Her car is discovered near a hiking trail with all her personal belongings inside, and there are visible signs of a struggle.
A decade goes by, and Amelia has never been found, a body never recovered, a suspect never named, and the case is as cold as ice. True crime podcaster, Liv Olsen, arrives in Amelia’s hometown of Santa Maria, California ready to make her mark and share Amelia’s story with the world (or whoever will listen). With her stepsister at her side, the two retrace Amelia’s final steps and unearth dangerous secrets, lost loves, a diverse cast of quirky characters, and a lifetime supply of cinnamon rolls.
Narrated by both Liv and Amelia, we alternate through time until the question is answered: did Amelia Clark runaway? Or was she murdered?
