What people are saying about Scorpio: “ A terrific mix of crime, mystery, romance and psychological thriller. By Steven L.on February 9, 2018
I didn’t read the first two books in this series but Scorpio: the Sign Behind the Crime: Book 3, stands on its own as a very complete story. The plot involving the search for a serial killer is masterfully written, and all the characters are so well drawn they all feel real. This is a great mix of crime, mystery, romance and psychological thriller at its best. I highly recommend it.”

Any book that keeps me wanting to pick it up so I can see what happens next is good reading. I had trouble leaving it alone for a couple days. The flow of the story is easy to read with an exciting story line.

Who’s Roxy Watkins
One day Kate Nash was a private investigator. She had a thriving enterprise, a supportive boyfriend, and the perfect business partner. The next day she was arrested for murder. “It’s not me. I don’t care what you see on the surveillance tape. I was at home asleep.” The police showed her the film. She couldn’t tell the difference between herself and the woman on the video.

  1. I follow Ronnie’s posts and books on Facebook and I’ve known Yvonne and Susan awhile. Didn’t know Yvonne had a new book. Loved her last one. Susan writes the Kate Nash series, which i love, but Tattered Wings is still a favorite of mine. Loved the emotional aspect of that book.

  2. All of these books and series sound great. A great post and wonderful support for other readers. Good job, Tierney, as always.
