Nancy Bush - You ​Don't Know Me
Dear ​Reader, You Don't Know me was the first romantic suspense novel I ever wrote. It was originally published as Tangled in the early 90s under the pseudonym Nancy Kelly. I'm delighted that it's finally available again in this repackaged edition. Everyone in Wagon Wheel, Oregon, knew that Thomas Daniels was a mean, violent man, twisted by liquor and hate. His stepdaughters, Dinah, Denise, and Hayley, knew it better than anyone. And then, with one desperate act, their lives changed forever. Now, years after he disappeared, Thomas Daniels’s remains have been found and a murder investigation is underway. All three sisters--Dinah, a respected journalist, acclaimed actress Denise, and Hayley, hungry for her own chance at stardom--find their lives intersecting and unraveling again. And piece by piece, they'll confront the truth about that deadly night--and the dark secrets that could turn one of them into a killer. . . With its new title and new cover, You Don't Know Me feels like a whole new book to me--one I hope you will enjoy as much as I do! Nancy Bush

Nancy Bush - Candy ​Apple Red
Jane ​Kelly is through with following men anywhere. Last time she did, she left Southern California for the dubious charms of Lake Chinook, Oregon, where she's traded in bartending for the much more glamorous trade of process serving. (Well, she can tell herself it's glamorous, anyway.) And the boyfriend, of course, is long gone. She's not making any lifetime commitments, but when Portland divorce attorney Marta Cornell calls with a P.I. job, the money involved sounds like the answer to her dwindling bank account - until she learns Tess Bradbury wants her to investigate the disappearance of Bobby Reynolds. Four years ago, without warning, Bobby murdered his young family and promptly vanished. No one disputed that he'd slaughtered his own flesh and blood except Tim Murphy, his best friend - and Jane's ex, the one guy she's never quite gotten over. The murders had driven a wedge between him and Jane, and finally drove him right out of town. Now he's on his way back, to attend a Lake Chinook Historical Society benefit that Cotton Reynolds, Bobby's father, is hosting. It looks like Jane's going to be following men around again - this time with a tape recorder and a camera.
