Macey Malloy Mysteries Book 2

Take a Walk on the Dead Side by Jada Ryker

macey malloryMacey Malloy and Wikket, her cantankerous cat with a nose for crime, plunge headlong into danger when a stalker targets an innocent college student. Terrified for the girl, Macey tries to help her, only to be trapped in the web of deceit with tangled links to missing women.

Dodging stalkers and investigating disappearances doesn’t allow Macey much time for her love life . . . which is a hot mess. With good intentions, her detective boyfriend crosses the thin blue line from good to evil. The charismatic and dangerous man from her past keeps popping up in her present. Her almost-boyfriend employs his fart machine in matters of life, love, and death. A handsome stranger makes her shiver . . . with both attraction and the fear that he may be following a secret, deadly agenda connected with the cold cases of the women who’d vanished over fifteen years ago.

As if she doesn’t have enough on her plate, Macey Malloy contends with Stan Glee. The popular YouTube host is determined to cash in on her notoriety. Glee is convinced he’s marvelous, while she’s certain that he has issues.

Even with her grumpy cat’s help, will Macey Malloy solve the mysteries before it’s too late?
