Love means never having to hear your Miranda Rights…
Catherine Cade has a problem. She's an identity thief with traumatic amnesia, impersonating a nurse practitioner, and fudging another identity. Wanting to go straight is tougher than it looks. When a patient dies a mysterious death, she faces an agonizing decision when evidence points to murder. She must overcome her fear of being exposed, where a murderous ex-partner may find her. Dogged by homicide detective Rick Calhoun, it couldn’t get any worse. You know how it is, keep the lies straight, tend to patients, and open a bakery to fudge another identity. Her bigger worry is the detective who found her. He’s onto her, and she‘s stuck.
Rick Calhoun is a homicide detective with a knack for crashing computers, but he knows more about Cade than she does. And he’s had his eye on her. Now he has good reason to find out what Cade’s up to, ‘this time.’ When he finds a murder scene and catches up with Cade, the chase begins. His plate is full: a murder investigation to keep quiet, cold cases to close, find out why Catherine is unknowingly involved in intrigue… and keep her out of trouble. His biggest problem, he is in love with her, and will sacrifice anything to give her safe passage.
A native to rural Southern Oregon, Claire O’Sullivan has worked both as a nurse, then family nurse practitioner. She also trained with volunteer forensics locally, which she’s applied to her debut novel, romantic suspense, “Romance Under Wraps,” and to her medical thriller, “Rules of Engagement.” “Glass Slipper” is a forensics and police procedural, a sequel to “Romance Under Wraps,” ‘almost’ ready for the publisher.
Her books are more grit than gush. She’s always wanted to write a sweet romance, but dead bodies somehow always show up. She has no idea how this happens. Or, as in “Rules of Engagement,” the world is in danger from some type of conspirators.
She can usually be found reading a book (only 240 left on her Kindle), likely a romantic suspense, military thriller, medical, police procedural, as well as a political thriller. Despite the grit, her works are inspirational.
Although absolutely humorless, with the exception of morbid humor she’s gained from 40 years of nursing, she seems to think she’s funny and inserts lame comedy into her work while snort laughing at old movies. Now that Mrs. O’Sullivan writes full time, she and her husband will always call Oregon “home,” because they are simply too old to move. But on the upside, they can visit family, friends, and the beach or mountains.
By the way, put this around your garden. It won't stop the deer but add a fake body and your veggies are safe from folks walking by and it will encourage them to run. Or call the cops...
