Description

Hire Alice. Private Investigator of the Supernatural.

Alice Isn't Running Anymore.

Five years ago, mage private investigator Alice Worth escaped her grandfather Moses Murphy's organized crime syndicate. Now, her grandfather's war with local boss Darius Bell has drawn her out of hiding and put her in the crosshairs of two merciless crime lords. Her decision to intervene in their war has endangered everyone Alice cares about and threatens to destroy the life she's built for herself, including her relationship with alpha werewolf Sean Maclin.

Meanwhile, Alice's new case is the most dangerous of her career. Hired to find a missing child with a rare magical ability, she and her ghost sidekick Malcolm quickly become targets for the boy's ruthless kidnappers. To stay alive and free from both Bell and Moses, she must rely not only on her growing powers but also her alliances with Sean's pack and the Vampire Court.

When Alice's conflicts with pack members turn violent and the Court betrays her, the truth becomes clear: freeing the kidnapped boy and finding her place in the pack will cost Alice her secrets, her safety, and--if she isn't careful--her life.

"Lisa Edmonds has made an instant fan of me. I look forward to reading the next case that requires Alice's special set of skills." - The Reading Cafe

AUTHOR INTERVIEW

Q: Why do you write?

A: I've wanted to be a writer since I was five years old and I wrote my first story. My head is always full of stories and it's so wonderful and such a privilege to get to share them with others. I write because I *have* to write and because there's nothing I love to do more. When you write, you get to bring people to life, create a world for them to inhabit, and invite readers to enjoy that world with you. If that's not real magic, I don't know what is.

Q: What books do you write?

A: I want to write the kinds of stories and books that I love to read--lots of adventure, mystery, suspense, action, twists, magic, and of course romance. The Alice Worth series is paranormal mystery set in a world very like our own, but with magic and supernatural beings. I hope readers get caught up in the mysteries and enjoy going on adventures with Alice as she tries to solve them and figure out her place in the world. The reading order follows below.

ALICE WORTH

HEART OF MALICE (book 1) JUST FOR ONE NIGHT (short story) BLOOD MONEY (novella) HEART OF FIRE (book 2) HEART OF ICE (book 3) HEART OF STONE (book 4)

Q: Do you use music in your writing?



A: Yes! Each Alice Worth book has a curated playlist of songs featured in the novel, as well as other tunes that enhance your reading experience. Alice loves music and so do I! See the playlists at my website.

Review quote

"Edmonds's prose is energetic...Alice is both spunky and self-deprecating, with incredibly advanced magical powers...There is promise in Edmonds's melding of the supernatural and the everyday." - Publishers Weekly

"Alice is a pretty badass heroine who has potential to be one of my favorite in the genre. She takes a beating, heals herself, and goes back into the fray. The plot is fast-paced and revolves around an excellent magical mystery with earth shattering consequences should something go askew. I loved Alice's backstory and learning how this world works. I look forward to seeing what is in store for Alice in the next book." - All Things Urban Fantasy

"Add everything together, great writing, great characters, interesting pasts, and great plotting, I can't wait to read more! Highly recommend!" - Librarian, Penny Noble

"The Alice Worth series quickly turned into a must-read series for me. As soon as you think you have a handle on what she can do, another level of power is revealed. She truly is a bad-ass and it's amazing to witness what she can do. As with book one, I didn't want to stop reading when the book ended. I look forward to seeing what book three will bring to the table." - Urban Fantasy Investigations

"Alice is the type of Heroine I live to read about and scour the net looking for others of her ilk. Tough, no-nonsense, a bit damaged, yet so real and full of compassion and needing love yet afraid of it when it finds them. Edmonds can't get book three out fast enough as far as I am concerned." - Boundless Book Reviews
