News and Reviews...
For With Neighbors Like These
“Linda Lovely delivers another twisty mystery with the perfect mix of wry humor and quirky characters. Anyone looking for a fun, fast page-turner, here it is!”
--Tami Hoag, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“HOA communities seem deceptively safe, but the mix of gossip and politics in rule-bound groups can be a fertile breeding ground for murder. For the gutsy Kylee Kane, a fact-finding gig in South Carolina’s Lowcountry turns increasingly complex and dangerous. With Neighbors Like These offers a distinctive setting, a tenacious female sleuth and captivating suspense.”
--Katherine Ramsland, bestselling author of How to Catch a Killer
"Low Country murder, intrigue, and even a little romance abound in With Neighbors Like These. Kylee Kane is a welcome addition to the genre, and author Linda Lovely knows how to stir the pot with crackling dialogue and a tidy little mystery. Highly recommended!"
--Richard Helms, Derringer and Thriller Awards winning author of Brittle Karma
"Multi-layered plots are always central to Linda Lovely’s novels. With her fully fleshed out central characters perfectly set up to navigate the twists and turns of the storylines, this entertaining mystery writer always delivers a thoroughly engrossing read. With Neighbors Like These is a stellar, page-turning beginning to her brand new HOA Mystery Series."
--Patti Phillips, Nightstand Book Reviews
For Neighbors to Die For
"Another masterful mystery by Linda Lovely. Filled with twists, turns, and interesting characters. Being part of an HOA can be dangerous business." --Dana Ridenour, award winning author of the Lexie Montgomery FBI undercover series
For A Killer App
“Linda Lovely’s yarns are an easy read and her familiarity with Lowcounty staples like no-see-ums, deer issues, Security Officers and POA management is spot on. It’s neat to have our little slice of the Lowcounty serve as the backdrop for a fictional Murder Mystery.”—Peter Kristian, General Manager of the 4,200-home Hilton Head Plantation Property Owners Association.
