Book 1 in The Trenchcoat Brigade Series

What do an inquisitive reporter, a dedicated cop, and a band of geriatric mystery sleuths have in common? The desire to see justice done!

Tossed from a prestigious San Francisco newspaper, journalist C.J. Pulaski returns to her hometown of Conspiracy, California, in disgrace. She’s hit rock bottom and will do anything to find her next big story and get her career back on track. In desperation, she even joins her father’s Trench Coat Brigade, a wacky group of seniors with a penchant for solving mysteries.

After his partner was killed in the line of duty, Nate Cole left the LAPD to become police chief in Conspiracy. Small town living suits him just fine until he has to solve a thirty-five-year-old murder, keep the Trench Coat Brigade in line and deal with a spunky, outspoken reporter. Now, Nate suspects there’s been something missing from his life—C.J.

“Loved this book and am so happy to hear the author will be continuing on with the Trench Coat Brigade–that group was awesome. As for the romance between C.J. and Nate…I loved how it progressed slowly and naturally. There was chemistry from the beginning, but their attraction wasn’t forced. This book is primarily a romance, with a great mystery thrown in (which is my favorite type of book). Well done. I look forward to reading more from this author.” — Becky, Amazon Customer

“This book is a fun romantic mystery with memorable characters. It’s clear to see why CJ and Nate are drawn to each other, even though they have compelling reasons to stay apart. The characters that make up the Trench Coat Brigade are endearing and fun to be around. I hope this is going to be a series because I’m looking forward to reading more about this group!” — Lu Licursi, Amazon Customer
