On August 1, 2014, (in Australia) the second novel in the Lexie Rogers series, Deadly Obsession, will be released:

Deadly Obsession largeA young nurse’s body is found at Clovelly Beach in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. Apart from a puncture wound in her neck, she is in perfect condition. She’s also clutching a rose in her hands, and there’s an empty packet of prescription drugs in her pocket. Investigating the scene, Detective Lexie Rogers and her partner Brad Sommers know something is not right. It appears to be a staged suicide. And as they begin to dig deeper, Lexie discovers the case is too close to home. The dead girl was a work colleague of Lexie’s ex-husband, who is now a paramedic. And she was also a friend of the woman who broke up Lexie’s marriage.
