I’m very excited to let you know about this new boxed set that’s just been released: Fatal 5: Novels of Mystery and Suspense by Today’s Bestselling Christian Authors. I’ve had the pleasure of reading three of the five novels so far – all full of plenty of mystery and suspense, but neither grit nor gore – and I definitely recommend them! (For those of you not into Christian fiction – no worries. They’re very enjoyable stories, just with the authors’ faith mixed in.)
The best part? The entire boxed set is currently just $0.99! The book summaries are below.
RANDOM ACTS OF MURDER
When Holly Anna Paladin is given a year to live, she embraces her final days doing what she loves most—random acts of kindness. But one of her extreme good deeds goes horribly wrong, implicating Holly in a string of murders. Holly is suddenly in a different kind of fight for her life.
Only two other people know Holly was at the site of the murder, and one of them is the killer. Making matters stickier is the fact that the detective assigned to the case is her old high school crush and present day nemesis.
The clock is ticking as Holly is forced to play a dangerous game. Will Holly find the killer before he ruins what’s left of her life? Or will she spend her final days alone and behind bars?
Heather Day Gilbert
Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her.
But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer…or the next victim might be Tess herself.
THE WITCH TREE
Christmas in Colorado means snow. Lots of it. And murder.
Just days before Christmas in the mountain town of Elk Park, Colorado, genealogist Anna Denning discovers a client’s body. When she starts asking questions no one wants answered, she becomes the killer’s next target. Still grieving the death of her husband, Anna must draw on her wounded faith to enter a world of wicca and witchcraft—reminders of a past she buried long ago—and discover the secret of The Witch Tree.
Don & Stephanie Prichard
First they had to survive the island … then each other … then their rescuer.
All Marine Corps reservist Jake Chalmers wants is to give his dying wife a last, romantic cruise to the Philippines. Unable to save her in a mass murder aboard ship, he washes ashore a jungle island, where he discovers three other survivors. Heartbroken that he failed to save his wife, he is determined not to fail these helpless castaways.
Federal prosecutor Eve Eriksson rescues a young girl and her elderly great-aunt from the same ship. They badly need Jake’s survival skills, but why is he so maddeningly careful? She needs to hurry home to nail a significant career trial. And, please, before Jake learns her secret that she’s responsible for his wife’s death.
WHEN NIGHT COMES
Jack Turner comes back to Culpepper to give a series of lectures for his old history professor. Within days, he starts having bizarre experiences at night. Like he’s traveling back in time, experiencing the epic events in his lectures firsthand. He has no control over these experiences and can’t make them stop.
Joe Boyd thought he’d left big city crime back in Pittsburgh when he took a detective job in Culpepper, Georgia, a sleepy southern college town. His peaceful life ends when two students turn up dead in two weeks. The coroner is saying natural causes, but something doesn’t add up.
Rachel Cook, a teaching assistant at Culpepper, can’t believe Jack is back in her life again. She’s had a crush on him since she was fourteen, but Jack never knew. He instantly seems attracted to her, but she can tell…something is deeply troubling him.
Watching all this from a distance is Nigel Avery. He’s certain this experiment’s about to unravel. It’ll be his job to tie up all the loose ends when it does.

Special Post Script
Full disclosure: Stranded, one of the books in this boxed set, was co-authored by my very own Grandma Steph, whom you’ve probably heard me talk about in my book and on my blog. Okay, no, she’s not my real grandma. She’s my Real Grandma. (If you don’t get that, you never will.)
And I am EPICALLY proud of her debut novel! She currently has – get this – over 800 Amazon reviews with an average rating of 4.5 stars! The boxed set is worth it, just for that! So go get your copy, and happy reading!
