Synopsis: Feisty, redheaded Alexandra Merritt has the curious dilemma of inheriting her former employer’s casino in Las Vegas—where anything can and does happen. In addition to learning the ins and outs of running the Desert Flower, Alex has to deal with the famous and the infamous with their special quirks. Hot-shot athletes, movie stars, and stand-up comics all converge on the casino. But when more than one of her guests turns up dead, Alex becomes embroiled in a mystery as hot as the Nevada desert.
Beautiful blond Nikki Simmons has the face of an angel, the body of a goddess, and the conscience of a sociopath. A spoiled heiress, she kills for fun. When she instantly takes a dislike to Alex, she decides to put the casino owner on her list of victims. After all, what’s one more?
Alex isn’t sure who wants her dead, but she better figure it out before the Desert Flower becomes Vegas’s next morgue.
With its tantalizing mix of cozy and regional, fans of Carolyn Hart and Cleo Coyle will enjoy this second offering in the Alexandra Merritt mystery series.
About the Author:
A Michigan native who studied writing in school, Donna Foley Mabry first came to Vegas to make costumes and soon was weaving the stories she heard in the back of the girls' dressing room into her first novel. Now she is the author of The Alexandra Merritt Mysteries, which include 'The Last Two Aces in Las Vegas', 'The Las Vegas Desert Flower', 'The Las Vegas Special', 'Rough Ride in Vegas', and 'M.I.A. Las Vega's. The new book in this popular series is in final edits and will be published soon.
Donna has written several other stand-alone thrillers, 'Desperate Ambition', about a political assassination, 'The Right Society', about a devout Christian family that moves into a religious community and finds it's easier to get in than it is to get out, and The Other Hand, about a famous athlete who leaves his family for a young, virginal girl. Shortly after they divorce, she winds up slaughtered. He is the primary suspect, but not the only one. Donna has a popular series of historical romances, The Manhattan Stories, 'Jessica', 'Pillsbury Crossing', 'The Cabin', and 'Kimimela'. A fifth in this series will be released soon.
Her light-hearted work,' Conversations With Skip', is the story of a shelter dog adopted by a young woman having trouble sleeping after her divorce. With his unusual ability to communicate, he is soon running her life, arranging her romances, and teaching her to laugh again.
Her most popular novel, 'Maude', the story of her Grandmother, is a #1 best-seller on Amazon and has spent multiple weeks on the Wall Street Journal's Top-10 list. 'Maude' is now available as an audiobook, was recently released in Italian and is currently being translated into Russian and German for upcoming international editions.
She has also written three screenplays, a stage play, poetry, short stories, and a children's story.
Donna stills takes occasional classes at UNLV and at writer's conferences and is an active member of the Anthem Author's in Henderson, NV.
