Sting of Lies (The Lies Mystery series)
Carol Potenza, author
Can solving a mysterious poisoning save her career? Oh, and lead her to a long-lost buried treasure? Wait. AND thrust her into the arms of true love? Paleontologist and poisons expert Myrna P. Lee, Ph.D. isn't a team player. Not because she doesn't want to be. She's just not very good at it. Even her dog gives her attitude. So, when she—and the dog—are sent to a remote billionaire's ranch tasked with solving an environmental poisoning, it's just fine with her. She doesn't need anyone else, no siree. Until a handsome cowboy moseys up to her side and: • helps her unravel a decades-old murder • leads her on an adventurous hunt for long-lost treasure • partners with her in a spine-tingling race against some very bad men • shows her the value of teamwork • and quite possibly steals her heart. Even the dog likes him. Too bad about that betrayal thing. Oh, and the sabotage. Wait. AND the grenades. Sting of Lies is the rollicking first book in the Lies Mystery series. If you like brilliant but awkward heroines, humor amid the mayhem, and a splash of the paranormal, then you'll love Carol Potenza's thrilling tale.
