Scottsdale PIs Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino of Shea Investigations are hired by the Arizona Heritage Museum to guard the multimillion-dollar Dahlonega Golden Dream Coin Collection. When the collection is stolen out from under them and a loved and trusted colleague is murdered, it’s a strike at the very heart of the agency. Eddie has been set up to take the fall for both crimes, so their first order of business is to clear his name. Not only is Eddie’s freedom at stake, but their business is on the line. In fact their very lives, as well as those of their loved ones, are in deadly peril. It soon becomes clear that Eddie has been targeted because of his former association with the mob. How far over to the dark side is Jordan Welsh, society girl, willing to go to save her lover Eddie from the echoes of his criminal past? Stealing the Golden Dream is the second book in the Jordan Welsh & Eddie Marino series, which began with Stealing the Moon & Stars. 
 
About the authors

Jean and Sally live in Scottsdale with their families and can now say they are full-time, professional writers. Yay! They work 3 days a week together, side-by-side, word-by-word, pounding it out, each bringing unique skills to the table and melding them into (they like to think) a hard-working, efficient writing team who have found a rhythm and working compatibility that surprised even them. We’re really good together, for partners in crime, that is.

Stealing the Moon & Stars and Stealing the Golden Dream are books 1 and 2 in the Jordan Welsh and Eddie Marino Novels.

Mystic Mayhem, the first in the Mystic Isle Mysteries, was released in September.

They’re fine-tuning Kangaroo Dreaming, the first novel in the Digby Sloan Mystery series and doing edits on Passion, Poison, & Puppy Dogs, the first Pet Sitter novel in the Danger Cove Mystery series from Gemma Halliday Publishing, scheduled for an April release.

    1. Hello, Catarina, the two books promoted here today are sexy, romantic thrillers. We also have another series, the first of which, Mystic Mayhem, is a light-hearted paranormal romp--like a Scooby-doo carton for grown-ups.
