Just released: new novel & short story

I'm so excited to announce the publication of a new Jade O'Reilly novel and short story! Here are the details:

Concealed Suspicions A Jade O'Reilly Mystery

What begins as a white-collar crime investigation soon becomes deadly complicated with private investigator Jade O’Reilly on the scene.

Trouble arises when Benton Rowe, one of coastal North Carolina’s most successful businessmen and eligible bachelors, finds a local store selling embezzled merchandise from one of his shipping companies. Benton bypasses the police to find the embezzler his own way. He hires Jade to work undercover from inside his company to solve the crime.

Jade sees the case as the ideal cover to dig into Benton’s possible involvement in her father’s death. As Jade is swept into Benton’s world of penthouse apartments and fancy yachts, her boyfriend, Keith, isn’t as thrilled with Jade’s assignment. Nor are the thuggish members of Benton’s security team, one of whom appears as suspicious of Jade as she is of him. Will Jade get to the bottom of the embezzlement at Benton’s shipping industry and find dirt on Benton before she’s permanently exported?

Concealed Suspicions is the third novel in the Jade O’Reilly Mystery series by bestselling mystery author Tamara Ward.

Jade O'Reilly and the Luck of the Irish(A Sweetwater Short)

  If luck is a lady, she's certainly not private investigator Jade O'Reilly. When Jade is late to work, she's punished by being assigned what may be an unsolvable case: find a missing four-leaf-clover good-luck charm before the town's St. Patrick's Day Festival. With an Irish cooking competition deadline bearing down, Jade chases clover clues while searching for the owner of a troublesome black cat that visits Jade's apartment to torture her on a nightly basis. Jade also is determined to pinpoint where her brother is spending his mornings and evenings—because it's not at his house with his wife and son who claims that "Daddy's got a secret." It's lucky uncovering secrets is Jade's specialty, even if luck itself is not.
