Muddy Waters

Muddy Waters

Agreeing to be best man at his uncle’s wedding, range detective Henry “Whispering” Smith returns to his North Carolina hometown. His years of tracking livestock rustlers in the desolate Colorado Plateau country haven’t prepared him for facing the two things that drove him away — a pig-headed father he doesn’t like and an unfaithful ex-girlfriend he does.

A close friend is murdered and plans for a brief visit fall apart. Cattle theft appears to be the motive, but Henry isn’t convinced. When police don’t believe him, he must use his range detective skills to bring a killer to justice. Struggling to reconcile his past, Henry follows a trail that leads uncomfortably close to his heart.

Indies Today 5-Star Review: “With a heady backdrop of rugged mountains and handsome cowboys, Muddy Waters is a decadent fictional treat. The investigation is the main story, but there are several interesting sub-plots flowing through the novel as well. Henry is the perfect hero for a crime thriller set in a rural location. He is strong, confident, mature, and at times funny… Candace Carter has fashioned a brilliant who-dun-it story with enough clever clues and shocking twists to satisfy even the most ambitious amateur sleuth!” $3.99 on Kindle.

Bells, Tails & Murder

Bells, Tails & Murder

A Cotswolds village, a grieving heroine, two furry sidekicks…and a murder!

Do you like heroines who’ve lived a little? Who’ve suffered life’s ups and downs but kept on trucking? Then you’ll love Leta Parker and her new friends in the Cotswold village of Astonbury.

When tragedy strikes Leta Parker’s life, the successful banker and closet sleuth chases a lifelong dream to retire to England. Leaving her friends and neighbors in Atlanta, she settles into Astonbury with her talkative dog and cat, Dickens and Christie.

Picture her driving a refurbished London taxi to the bookshop and the tearoom, enjoying leisurely walks with Dickens the dog, and sipping coffee in the garden with Christie, her sassy cat.

When Leta stumbles across the dead body of a new acquaintance, her inner Nancy Drew comes out. Before you know it, she’s enlisted the help of Wendy, a retired English teacher friend—and even Wendy’s elderly mum.

Two whipsmart retirees, one spunky senior citizen, and a feisty dog and cat are on the case!

Who better to unearth clues from their friends in the village? Even Dickens and Christie get in on the act gathering intelligence from their four-legged friends and pointing out the obvious to Leta.

What do authors A. A. Milne, Arthur Conan Doyle, and J. M. Barrie have to do with all this?

Is their connection with the Cotswolds merely an interesting bit of trivia, or is it more? Will Leta and Wendy let their literary noses lead them astray?

You’ll be captivated as this unlikely team chases clues and ferrets out a long-buried secret—a scenario that would make any BBC cozy mystery producer proud. No matter the clues uncovered by Dickens and Christie, you’ll be hard-pressed to guess who the villain is unless, like Leta, you’re able to “talk to the animals.” $0.99 on Kindle.

Elaborately plotted and addictive paranormal detective novel.

An edge of your seat, thought-provoking, psychological thriller with a fantastic blend of detective mystery and a parallel world. A must-read for fans of Fringe and Ghost Whisperer.

On her wedding day, homicide detective Katie Hanson attempts suicide. Her failed suicide causes her to slip into a coma. For days she observes a different life unfold. A world in which her identical twin brother and mom were still alive. When she wakes from the coma, she realizes the gate to the spirit world remained open… wide open. Now Katie hears voices, sees things that are not there—the murder victims of her Department’s cold cases are tormenting her.

Katie finds that she can see through dimensions into a parallel world. Katie receives unexpected help with her current case from the doppelgänger she collided with during her coma.

She investigates the circumstances of her cold-case, the death of Sarah Alexander, and her two children. With the aid of her doppelgänger P-Kate, she learns to stream Sarah’s consciousness, her memories, her very soul.

Believing Sarah, she makes decisions that take her down a misguided path. She arrests Sarah’s husband. Hints from P-Kate tell her he is not her guy. It turns out nothing about the investigation is clear-cut. A dead person’s memory of the events can be as flawed as the living. The testimony does not match the evidence. She wants to believe Sarah, but the evidence doesn’t support the account.

To make matters worse, P-Kate can’t interfere beyond giving signs and symbols for Katie to intuit. Between the confusing symbols and the faulty recollection, she digs deeper and uncovers a secret even Sarah didn’t know. Katie risks her life to prove to Sarah, her version of the murder couldn’t be further from the truth.

If Sarah refuses to admit the devastating truth of who massacred her and her children, the killings will continue. To accept the truth, Sarah will have to acknowledge that she has been living a lie, and something even darker: She is the reason someone murdered her children. $2.99 on Kindle.
