When she returns to California, she discovers the elite seaside community of Papaya Springs has become more corrupt than she imagined.

The Dead Girl’s Stilettos is the first book in the Bexley Squires cozy mystery series.
The Million Dollar Collar
For the first time in her career as an investigator, Bexley Squires will be forced to prove the innocence of the most dubious suspect imaginable.
Papaya Springs has kept Bexley on her toes since her ill-fated return. When someone from her past unexpectedly comes knocking on the door of Stronghold Investigations, she eagerly offers her services.
But what first appears to be an imprudent stunt uncovers something much darker. Bexley’s investigation quickly turns sinister, putting her relationship with the hunky detective at risk, and lives in danger.
The Guard's Last Watch
Traumatized after her last case, Bexley Squires merely hopes to rebuild a solid reputation as Papaya Springs newest P.I. When Brewer Hawkins, her former high school classmate turned sexy biker, ends up in Mexico with amnesia, she can’t turn her back on him.
Framed for a murder he almost certainly didn’t commit, Brewer is just the cherry on Bexley’s rapidly melting sundae. The city’s dirty mayor seems to be back on her radar with a vengeance, she needs to help save her BFF's career, and Bexley’s ex-boyfriend, detective Grayson Rivers, refuses to stay in her past.
With a million and one things to do and a body count rising faster than the cost of living in Papaya Springs, finding out she might be falling for a wanted felon is the least of her worries. The suspects have noticed her probing and she needs to stop them—before Brewer’s next on their list.
The Skeleton Key's Secrets
As the new owner of Stronghold Investigations, Bexley Squires struggles to solve her biggest mystery yet—one that hits far too close to home.
Amidst revisiting a painful past and planning for a potentially more painful future with Brewer Hawkins, Bexley’s given unfortunate news that changes everything. While attempting to make sense of an unfathomable scenario, she’s offered a substantial reward to solve a case that involves the upmost secrecy.
By the time she discovers an inanimate object is the key—pun intended—to something more substantial than a simple theft, it’ll be too late. She’ll find herself knee-deep in another family’s war while trying to make peace with her own.
The Notebook's Hidden Truths
When the son of an elite Papaya Springs couple is involved in an accident that leaves many unanswered questions, they turn to Stronghold Investigations for help. While all indications lead Bexley Squires to believe the high school senior was planning the unthinkable, his parents task her with uncovering his true intentions.
And just when Bexley thinks her questionable half-sister is out of her life following their father’s death, she receives a call that both shocks her to the core and forces her to face unexpected challenges. With her boyfriend serving out his sentence in jail, Bexley will have to lean on her friends and family more than ever.
