Christine receives a threatening note and her townhouse echoes with mysterious cries in the night. That is when the handsome and irritating detective insists he temporarily move in to protect her. To add insult, it is with her family’s blessing. ILLUSION: Utopia the Beginning Special Agent Reagan Beckett left Brooklyn for San Francisco ten years ago—and on bad terms with her family. When the World Banking Association (WBA), one of the biggest worldwide financial institutions, is targeted by domestic terrorists, Reagan is called to join the team with two others in New York City. Now she would be home for an extended visit. As soon as Reagan receives information on the assignment, she researches her new partners. But does she know enough to literally trust these men with her life?​ PROFIT: Utopia the Conclusion Matt Beckett is the Chief Financial officer for World Banking Association (WBA). Over a year ago an agency known as the HEAD group tried to take over the WBA. Now the founder of HEAD, Andrew Phillips, is back and ready to finish what he’d started with a new and dastardly key player from the Dark web. Bryn Connelly is the Chief Audit Executive also for the WBA. She had been one of the Headman’s targets and thought her days of danger were over. However, she finds herself working with laid back Matt Beckett, much to her dismay. It’s up to Matt and Bryn to finish what Reagan and her team started, but can he win the lovely Bryn and save the day? Or will he lose her forever if the WBA falls into the wrong hands? ABANDONED Wanting more than being a Beckett, Glenna moves to California, opens a successful vintage shop and even finds love with international playboy, Lance Gordon. Refusing to believe she’s been abandoned at the altar, she asks her FBI Agent brother, Tyler, to contact a friend on the West Coast to find Lance. Special Agent, Patrick McGinnis, can’t believe he’s on a wild goose chase for a missing groom. Unfortunately, once Patrick starts to dig, he finds there’s more to the tale and it will take all his skills as an agent to keep Glenna safe. Especially when the case takes a turn and threatens the safety of his son, Finn.​

My Review:

Honor. Loyalty. Justice. The Becketts know what it means to battle evil, protect the innocent and seek justice. When one of their own is in danger, the others rise up and take down the enemy.


After working undercover for two years, Tyler’s cover is blown. Keira is a witness to a murder and is now being hunted by the hit man. Tyler is shot trying to protect her. She vows revenge. Can Tyler bring down the hit man before he loses her forever?


FBI Agent Gabriel is in big trouble. He's falling for his partner's sister which is breaking a code, but he can't help himself. When she is accused of a crime and then kidnapped, he will move heaven and earth to save her. Can he do what must be done or will his love blind him?


Christine's dream of partnership at a law firm is at hand, she's financially secure, so why does she need a man? When she receives a threatening note, her family insists handsome Detective Solomon protect her from harm. She's annoyed yet can't seem to resist his charm. Can love break through the walls of Christine's heart?

Illusion: Utopia the Beginning

Reagan left home ten years ago and never looked back. She’s a special agent and loves her job. When one of the largest financial institutions falls victim to terrorism, they send her home to investigate. But all is not as it seems on both the family front and her investigation. The more she investigates her new team, the less she trusts them. Is this a coverup and is she the next target?

Profit: Utopia the Conclusion

Matt is CFO for the WBA. Once a target by a terrorist group, he now finds himself in the crosshairs of not only a terrorist but shadowy figures on the fringes of the internet. Working with Bryn is a salvation to his soul, but he needs to convince her he’s the man for her on all fronts. So much hinges on Matt’s ability to take down the terrorist group before they take over the WBA. Can he protect the woman he loves in time?


Glenna has everything she’s ever wanted and is about to get married when he suddenly disappears. She asks her brother, Tyler, for help and he enlists the help of his friend, Patrick. What Patrick finds is disturbing and downright dangerous. Glenna is in trouble as is Patrick’s son. Can he protect them both while still bringing the criminals to justice or will he have to choose between Glenna and Finn?

Blending action, suspense, intrigue, romance, family saga, and crime thriller, The Beckett Series has it all.
