In Harm’s Way

The Annie Velazquez Mysteries, Book 1

By EJ Kindred

She hunted a killer--until he found her.

When her father dies in a fire and the suspected arsonist is later murdered, Annie Velasquez comes under suspicion. Though the police don’t have evidence to arrest her, in an effort to escape stress and rebuild her shattered life, Annie moves south of Portland, Oregon, and gets a housekeeping job. Peace of mind is short-lived when her employer is stabbed to death and a new police investigator is on this case. Who killed Dr. Wentworth? Is there a malevolent force dogging Annie’s footsteps? And what happened to the house chef, Annie’s friend Mo? Will Annie live long enough to find out?

“EJ Kindred’s debut novel is a terrific read you won’t want to put down. Nice pacing with funny, nostalgic, tragic scenes, twists, and surprises. Very well done. The cast of characters is somewhat large, but I had no trouble keeping track of who was who, and I cared about what happened to them. In particular, I loved the realism of the average, every day people, the settings, and the jobs portrayed. The conflict was well-written between Downton Abbey upper crust nasty and Americana rural life with working people who care about each other. Highly recommended.”
