Ardent fan to serial killer


From Romantic Suspense BEST-SELLING and AWARD-WINNING Author | What happens when someone goes from bestselling author to suspected murderer because of their writing? In Sheila Kell’s highly anticipated novel of treachery, secrecy, and romance, Cassie and JD rush to find a killer while their growing relationship is threatened on two fronts.


Cassie McKay and JD Walker are in a fix again. This time, Cassie’s author friend is suspected of murder.


What stirs the FBI’s suspicions is that the killings are playing out exactly as she wrote them, but before her book is published. It’s up to Cassie and JD to clear the author’s name before it’s too late.


As Cassie and JD attempt to find the killer, cope with Gus’s odd affliction, recruit one of JD’s exes, argue with Cassie’s former FBI husband, and more, they continue to navigate their new relationship throughout these obstacles.


Read Between the Lines is the second book in the Coastal Investigation series. If you enjoy thriller whodunits, you’ll love this installment of Sheila Kell’s new romantic suspense series.




As I come up behind the woman, the excitement in me thrives as she moves her hair to one side so I can access her neck. Instead of nibbling on the silky skin, I ask in a low voice, “May I tie you up?” I produce a red silk scarf in front of her. The blood-red color is a specific detail I must follow.


Hesitantly, she replies, “You won’t hurt me, will you?”


Slowly, as I pull the scarf around her neck, I whisper, “Only ’til death.” Then, I tighten the scarf. Of course, she struggles. Being prepared, I wear long sleeves and keep my head averted so her nails didn’t dig in and grab my DNA. Any deviation could ruin things.


In reality—not TV or movies—it takes four to five minutes to strangle a victim. But only if enough pressure is consistently applied. A fighting, bucking woman makes it harder to keep the scarf tight. But I’ve prepared for this mission by working out and strengthening my muscles. So, I entirely close off her trachea in less than five minutes.


Disappointed, I wish I could have witnessed the essence of life flow from her eyes. Oh, the power to have in one’s hands—life or death. My woman talks about killing many times, but I have not realized—until now—that she means for me to do her bidding. And I have. More than once already.


I know the woman I love isn’t through with her murder list. I know it like I know the back of my hand. She is savage and bloodthirsty and will want more victims before it ends. And how will it end?
