Downsized from her job. Dumped by her boyfriend. Depressed about that upcoming 6-0 birthday. Not a good week for Andi McConnell.

But now there's good news: She's just inherited a limousine, a long, sleek, black limousine, from an eccentric uncle. There's also bad news: The dead body that soon turns up in the trunk. And Andi is the top suspect in the murder.

Enter Keegan "Fitz" Fitzpatrick, former TV detective, very interested in the case — and in Andi. As they work together to solve the crime, a big question looms: when the bullets start flying, are the windows in Andi's limo really bullet proof?

Her three-year-old, Mallory, went missing five years ago. As she works with FBI special agent, Drake Reynolds, Rachel discovers an organized crime ring linked to the cruise line. The last person known to see Amber aboard the ship was an incognito DEA agent, who also has vanished. Where is he? And where is Amber? Finally, where is Mallory?

Price: 99¢ (as of 03/06/2015 at 3:00 PM ET).

A Killer Collection by Ellery Adams, Amazon Kindle format

First published in 2006 as written by J. B. Stanley.

In the world of antiques and collectibles, it helps to have a sharp eye for quality, a good ear for gossip, and a nose for murder …

Molly Appleby is a young writer for Collector's Weekly, and when the attractive reporter isn't covering auctions and antique shows all over the South, she's trying to get her new relationship with a coworker off the ground. When her latest assignment takes her to North Carolina pottery country to cover an exclusive kiln opening, she's certain the show promises surprising offerings and rare finds. What she doesn't expect to find is a dead body.

George-Bradley Staunton is known throughout the antiques world as a very wealthy and very ruthless collector, and when he drops dead just after the opening, there are all too few mourners and a seemingly endless list of suspects. When the local police are stumped, Molly steps in to put her journalist's nose to work sniffing out the culprit. But no sooner does she start collecting clues than another dead body falls into her lap.

As Molly digs beneath the genteel surface of antiques and collectibles, she finds a world filled with backstabbing and competition, and what started as a story about rare collections might leave Molly with nothing more than a collection of corpses.

Lethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, New in Bookstores during March 2015

Today's featured new hardcover mystery, suspense, or thriller title scheduled to be published during March 2015 is …

Lethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry

Lethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, a Mia Quinn Mystery (3rd in series)

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Lethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, Amazon Kindle formatLethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, Nook formatLethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, iTune iBook formatLethal Beauty by Lis Wiehl with April Henry, Kobo format

The murder Mia is prosecuting seems like an open and shut case — until the accused claims he was the real victim and that the dead girl attacked him first. The tabloids dub her a "lethal beauty." Still, a conviction seems imminent. Then a key witness goes missing. Just when it looks like the killer could walk free, the dead woman's mother takes matters into her own hands.

Meanwhile, Charlie Carlson, a Seattle homicide detective, is investigating the murder of a man whose body washed up on the beach of Puget Sound, but he's got little to go on. He has no dental work, fingerprints aren't on file, and he doesn't match any missing person reports. Then a church pianist is senselessly gunned down before horrified parishioners.

All three cases seem unrelated — but are they? Together, Mia and Charlie race to find the answer before another crime hits too close to home.
