Winner of the Global Gold Best Mystery Fiction 2013.Lee Alvarez' ex-husband, Nick -- a man she divorced with joy in her heart and a gun in her hand - sprints back in her life only to disappear again. She'd love to leave it at that, but could he be responsible for the recent death of her cousin, who keeled over at the finish line of a half-marathon in front of hundreds of spectators? As PI for the family run business, Discretionary Inquiries, Lee follows the clues to Vegas, where she joins forces with Shoshone PI, Flint Tall Trees. Together they uncover a multi-million dollar betting syndicate, a tacky lounge lizard act, and a list of past but very dead runners, plus future ones to off. At the top of the 'future' list is the love of Lee's life, Gurn Hanson. Hoping to force the culprits out in the open, Gurn and Lee's brother, Richard, vow to run San Francisco's famous Palace to Palace footrace in only a few days. Can Lee keep the two men she loves from hitting the finish line as dead as her cousin? With more at stake than she ever dreamed possible, Lee is in a battle against time to stop the Alvarez Family's 12K race with death. This third offering of the Alvarez Family Murder Mystery Series was a finalist for the EPIC Best eBook Mystery 2013. Published by The Wives of Bath Press.

I love writing this series! They are all such fun characters. Murder is a Family Business, A Wedding to Die For, and Death Runs in the Family are humorous mysteries revolving around Lee Alvarez, a combination of Sue Grafton's Kinsey Millhone and Janet Evanovitch's Stephanie Plum, and the rest of Alvarez Family. That would include Lee's Never-Had-A-Bad-Hair-Day aristocratic mother, Lila; computer genius brother, Richard; beloved uncle "Tio;" and her energetic orange and white cat, Tugger. When this group is not solving murders, they run Discretionary Inquiries, a successful Silicon Valley agency that normally deals with the theft of intellectual property and computer software. Seemingly light and frothy on the surface, these novels have a whacking good mystery to solve while they explore familial love, the good, the bad and the annoying.About the Author:
After studying drama at the University of Miami in Florida, Heather went to Manhattan to pursue a career. There she wrote short stories, novels, comedy acts, television treatments, ad copy, commercials, and two one-act plays, which were produced at several places, including Playwrights Horizon. Once, she even ghostwrote a book on how to run an employment agency. She was unemployed at the time.
One of her first paying jobs was writing a love story for a book published by Bantam called Moments of Love. She had a deadline of one week but promptly came down with the flu. Heather wrote "The Sands of Time" with a raging temperature, and delivered some pretty hot stuff because of it. Her stint at New York City's No Soap Radio - where she wrote comedic ad copy - helped develop her long-time love affair with comedy.
She is the acclaimed award-winning author of the humorous Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries. Murder is a Family Business, Book One, won the coveted Single Titles Reviewers' Choice Award 2011. A Wedding to Die For, the 2nd book of the series, was finalist in the EPIC and Global eBook Mystery of the Year, 2012. Death Runs in the Family, 3rd books of the series, won the 2013 Global eBook Mystery Fiction Award.
Her recent endeavor is The Persephone Cole Vintage Mystery Series, taking place in New York City, circa 1940. Ever wonder how Sam Spade or Phillip Marlowe might act if they were a woman? Meet Persephone "Percy" Cole in The Dagger Before Me and Iced Diamonds.
Stand-alone noir mystery, Death of a Clown, is steeped in Heather's family history. She is the daughter of real-life Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus folk. Her mother was a trapeze artist/performer and father, an elephant trainer. Heather brings the daily existence of the Big Top to life during World War II, embellished by her own murderous imagination.
Death of a Clown is published by The Wives of Bath Press, March, 2013.
