The Best Book I’ve Read This Year! I just finished it and I loved it! It has more twists and turns
than a roller coaster. This book would
make an amazing movie, but the book will always be better. I can’t
wait to see what she writes next! – Rena, five-star review on Amazon.
From two-time Book of the Year finalist and
Thriller of the Year Award winner Kathleen O’Donnell comes a gripping psychological
thriller filled with quirky, unexpected twists.
A girl in
Delilah Diamond had it all, the popular cooking
show, a dream house, and a great romance with her producer, until the
producer’s wife gets wind of it all. Delilah loses her show, her job, and her
house. She’s forced to go back to her hometown where everyone has skeletons in
their closet—or worse.
A home not
like any other
She arrives just in time for the unfortunate death
of her high school crush, but senses something’s wrong with the story of his
demise. Before she realizes it, she’s knee-deep in a past that almost crushed
her years before, and could very well crush her now, for good.
A mother who
keeps sordid secrets
Local law enforcement is a homegrown drunk, and
useless, so someone higher up the food chain sends a big city detective who
starts sniffing around her classmate’s suspicious death and her mother’s past.
Delilah’s protective hackles are raised. She knows her mother has shameful
secrets, but the more she learns, the more she realizes she doesn’t know the
that comes together, even in crime
In small towns, you protect your family and your
neighbors come what may, but will Delilah be able to protect her mother without
exposing her own sins? The ones she worked so hard to cover up? Will she be
able to deter the detective away from the truth?
You can’t go
home again. Or can you? Should you? How safe is home when you know where the
bodies are buried?
Home is ultimately a story about
love, family, loyalty and circling the wagons no matter what terrible crime’s
been committed. It’s quirky, heartfelt, and reminiscent of Dolores Claiborne
and the works of Kate Atkinson, Jane Hamilton, and Janet Evanovich.

After her latest dating disaster, legal clerk Kerry Roberts decides to give up on finding the man of her dreams. In jest, her eldest son suggests she find a sugar daddy. Curious about the type of man willing to pay for companionship, she signs on to a web site dedicated to helping women connect with men-of-means.
Burned by a woman only after his money, corporate attorney Grayson Nichols doesn’t understand why several of his clients enjoy the price of paying for companionship. To check out the hype of a recommended website, he creates a profile, not imagining he’d come across a woman not fitting the usual profile, and yet expressing her intent to have a man take care of her. Grayson is determined to teach her a lesson-money can’t buy happiness.
After their first meeting, Grayson finds himself intrigued by and attracted to Kerry. He switches tactic and proposes an unusual arrangement. Will their unique approach to a relationship work, or will they let old wounds prevent them from finding what money can’t buy?
When money can’t buy happiness, love will always sweeten the deal.
