Carole Brown's newest book series features The Spies Of World War II

Angry at being rejected for military service, Minister Tyrell Walker accepts the call to serve as a civilian spy within his own country.

 Across the river from Cincinnati, Ohio, a spy working for a foreign country is stealing secret plans for newly developed ammunition to be used in the war. According to Tyrell's FBI cousin, this spy favors pink stationery giving strong indications that a woman is involved. 

He’s instructed to obtain a room in the Rayner Boarding House run by the lovely, spunky red-haired Emma Jaine Rayner. Sparks of jealousy and love fly between them immediately even as they battle suspicions that one or the other is not on the up and up.  

While Tyrell searches for the murdering spy who reaches even into the boarding home, Emma Jaine struggles with an annoying renter, a worried father (who could be involved in this spy thing), and two younger sisters who are very different but just as strong willed as she is. Tyrell works to keep his double life a secret and locate the traitor.

He refuses to believe that Emma Jaine could be involved even when he sees a red-haired woman in the arms of another man. Could the handsome and svelte banker who’s also determined to win Emma Jaine’s hand for marriage, be the dangerous man he’s looking for? 

Is the trouble-making renter who hassles Emma Jaine serving as a flunky? Worse, is Papa Rayner so worried about his finances and keeping his girls in the style they’re used to, that he’ll stoop to espionage? 

Will their love survive the danger and personal issues that arise to hinder the path of true love?

Carole is busy working on book two:

Carole Brown, also offers mystery readers a suspense driven cozy series featuring Denton and Alex Davies. Brown’s writing is full of turns and twists. Her ability to build suspense has been likened to the early works of James Patterson. 

With the Mountain Mist Campground at Pigeon Forge as their final destination, the Davies couple load up their RV and eagerly head for the Smokie Mountains. Newly retired, Denton hopes to use this trip to rekindle the dwindling flame of his marriage. In spite of her protests, he is sure his wife looks forward to the much deserved rest and relaxation as much as he does.

They barely arrive at their destination when a risk-taking motorcyclist speeds past them, followed by a careening sports car. Reminding Denton of his nephew’s fatal tangle ten years earlier. With the bike that Denton had taught him to ride.

Things continue to go south the rest of the evening, culminating when Denton finds a body sprawled in the brush beside the path to their cabin. A man's booted feet are toe down, as if they’d dug into the ground. And with biker gloves on his hands, indication is Denton may have seen this man earlier in the day.

Squatting beside him, Denton presses two fingers alongside the man's neck. No pulse. But Denton knew there wouldn't be. The bullet hole in the victim’s head said it all. Denton has a job to do and a mystery to solve.

September 2015

Red eyed monster Bats that attack humans? Denton doesn't think so and Alex hopes not, but who are they to quibble with the local gossip.
The Davies are not easily scared off, but they might have second thoughts when painted bats show up the porch of their rented cabin. And what are they to do when the mayor threatens to run them out of town...and Denton finds a cache of bones?

An ancient story, a bit of a map, a lost jewel, and even a bat clan provide the Davies their hardest case so far.
