Tamara Ward, Amazon bestselling mystery and romantic suspense author, released her newest book, “Silver Flashing.” The novel is the second in the Jonie Waters mystery series. Ward’s first book in the series, “Storm Surge,” was published in 2011.
“Silver Flashing” follows newspaper reporter Jonie Waters as she covers a bizarre story assignment and enters a house. Beneath the floorboards in one room, she unearths a trunk concealing a corpse.
Jonie dashes from the grim discovery to notify the police. But by the time Jonie’s romantic interest, alluring detective Daniel Wyeth, arrives on the scene and reenters the house, the trunk and its contents are missing.
With the police and her newspaper coworkers questioning her credibility, Jonie makes tracking down the body and the murderer her mission. She won’t let anything get in her way, not even distractions that include covering a series of newspaper articles with her old flame, interacting with her dysfunctional family, intercepting a mugging and surviving a round of mud wrestling.
Action and light romance combine with engaging characters and humor for a page-turning whodunit set in Wilmington, N.C.
The Jonie Waters mystery novels are published by Peak City Publishing in Apex. Ward lives in Holly Springs and is a correspondent for the Fuquay-Varina Independent.
All of Ward’s novels and short stories can be found online at Amazon.com.
