Lauren Carr's Quarantine Conversation with At Forty Five

WOW - This is one INCREDIBLE Novel!

 "Wow - this is one INCREDIBLE novel that I could not put down. It had me  on the edge of my seat and I can honestly say that I never saw the end  coming. It was full of suspense, action but also humour (done in a way  that only Lauren can accomplish)." - 5-Star Review of The Nutcracker Conspiracy by Working Mommy Journal

"Grab  your snacks. Put the cat/dog out. Send hubby somewhere to entertain  himself. And Beware! don't start at bedtime! Get ready for a  page-turning ride that will have you on the edge of your seat! Lauren  Carr does it again - giving us a fast paced thrilling ride that will  knock your socks off.  Or maybe knock you right out of your stiletto's! "  - 5-Star Review of The Nutcracker Conspiracy at My Reading Journey

"Once  again, just when I think that I've figured something out, Carr throws a  curveball and I'm left amazed that she can keep me guessing until the  end! There are so many twists and turns my head was spinning at one  point." - Review of The Nutcracker Conspiracy by Laura Fabiani, Library of Clean Reads

"The Nutcracker Conspiracy - book #4 in author Lauren Carr's Thorny Rose Mystery series - offers a  wild and complicated ride. It is a political thriller full of head  spinning twists and turns. Intriguing clues are offered along the way to  guide you, but the complicated plot is one that will keep you guessing  until the final chapter." - Review of The Nutcracker Conspiracy by Marilyn R. Wilson, Olio by Marilyn 

 Three years ago, the nation gasped in horror when the President of the  United States barely escaped an assassination attempt that left two  dead—the vice president’s wife and the attempted assassin.  Even after  numerous investigations proved otherwise, conspiracy theorists argue  that the assassin was acting on orders from the CIA, FBI, and every  federal agency within a hundred miles of the capital.   

Aspiring  Author Dean Conway is the last person Lieutenant Commander Murphy  Thornton wants to spend his Saturday afternoon when they end up at the  same wedding reception table. While their wives tend to bridesmaid  duties, Murphy is trapped listening to Dean’s latest  work-in-project—completing the manuscript of an investigative journalist  who’d disappeared months earlier.

“She was number twelve,” Dean says.  “Twelve?” Murphy asks.

“Twelve witnesses connected to or investigating The Nutcracker shooting have died either in an accident or suicide.”  

Two days later, Dean dies suddenly―but not before sending a text message to Murphy:   “13”

"Where to start? I have read and enjoyed every title by this prolific author. They are all filled with wonderful characters (both human and fur babies), interesting plots and a great combination of danger, suspense, humour and romance.  That said, I think The Last Thing She Said really stands out as exceptional. It showcases the author's great talent as well as the many years she has spent crafting her skills. Only someone with serious hours at the typewriter (or computer) could handle a storyline like this one. The mystery is unique and the plot intricate."-  Review by Marilyn R. Wilson, Olio by Marilyn

 “I’m working on the greatest mystery ever,” was the last thing noted  mystery novelist Mercedes Livingston said to seven-year-old Chris  Matheson before walking out of Hill House Hotel never to be seen again.
 

For  decades, the writer’s fate remained a puzzling mystery until an  autographed novel and a letter put a grown-up Chris Matheson on the  trail of a cunning killer. With the help of a team of fellow retired law  enforcement officers, each a specialist in their own field of  investigation, Chris puts a flame to this cold case to uncover what had  really happened that night Mercedes Livingston walked out of Hill House  Hotel. Watch out! The clues are getting hot! 

The thirteenth installment in the Mac Faraday mysteries, Crimes Past was released on October 16!

Mac Faraday Rips Into a Cold Case of Murder!

Murder hit the shores of Deep Creek Lake like a hurricane when Mac Faraday blew into Spencer, Maryland, in his red sports car in It's Murder, My Son, the first installment of Lauren Carr's best-selling mystery series. Since then, fans have enjoyed sifting through one clue after another in trying to uncover who-done-it. Thirteen mysteries later, Mac Faraday is ready to dive into the cold case of two fellow detectives brutally slain on their wedding night.

Decades of Deception Sprouts into Murder

 "The Root of Murder is another incredible story from Lauren Carr that you  will not be able to put down. She leaves you biting your nails, guessing  at every turn and never truly knowing what is coming next.

"I love the way Lauren writes and this novel is one of her best. She has a  way of taking a story and making you laugh, cry, worry and feel sorrow.  You don’t want to put her books down – which was the case with this  story – I had to read it in one sitting! I love how she brings her  characters to life and you become connected with them. Each new novel,  you get to learn a little bit more about them and you can’t help but  feel a deep connection to them." Review by Working Mommy Journal
