Blood makes you related; Murder makes you family!

Riley Ashcroft discovers that being born into one of the most prominent and powerful families in Massachusetts doesn’t mean a life of ease. Far from it. Since her father, Jack Ashcroft, took his own life thirteen years ago, she has lived in the shadow of scandal. When her grandmother’s personal secretary is brutally murdered, Riley begins to suspect everything she has been told as a child was a lie. Feeling betrayed, she vows to expose her family’s darkest secrets.

Josh Kincaid, an investigative reporter, is on the heels of a major story. Thirteen years ago, Harrison Taylor’s fate lay in the hands of his lawyer, Jack Ashcroft. In the midst of rumors and scandal, Ashcroft committed suicide and Taylor’s fate was decided. Taylor is a convicted killer, but his grandmother has never stopped believing in his innocence. Now, the woman of meager means has offered a reward for any information that will free her grandson. Kincaid’s interest is peaked, but it isn’t until an anonymous tip suggests that the convicted killer was framed that he takes on the case.

Determined that the sins of the past be revealed, Kincaid and Riley search together for answers to the questions that were silenced by Jack Ashcroft’s death. But there is a killer out there that has already proven he will do whatever necessary to keep those secrets buried.

In this tale of deceit and twisted revenge, the two soon realize that no one can be trusted, not even each other…

Fragmented, Boston’s Crimes of Passion Series

Back when I released Fragmented, I committed to donating a percentage of my royalties to The One Fund, a Boston based charity for the Boston Marathon Victims. Back in December, I made my last donation to The One Fund. Not because I decided not to give, but because it is closed to donations. This is the message that was left.

The One Fund Donations

We are truly grateful for your interest in donating to the One Fund Boston to support those most affected by the tragic Marathon bombings. As of December 15, 2014, the One Fund Boston is no longer accepting donations. However, we invite you to consider donating to other charitable programs and organizations supporting the survivor community.

I believe in giving back to the community and now have decided that my writing will commit to donating to The Home For Little Wanderers in Boston. For more than 200 years, The Home For Little Wanderers has built a reputation for changing and enhancing lives of children and families living in at-risk circumstances.

I bring this up because my attention is turning back to my Colleen Connally writings for a moment. Fragmented is my only contemporary suspense book that I have written to date. I do plan on continuing the series. I hope to have the next book in Boston’s Crimes of Passion out next year. I hope you have a chance to read Fragmented. I do not think it will disappoint.

“A gripping, page-turning thriller. You won’t be able to stop reading. And you’ll sleep with the lights on! Colleen Connally creates evocative words that will send more than chills down your spine. There’s also a few scenes that will grip your heart!”~ Elaine Raco Chase

The Heart of a City

1379329_598851563505602_550871764_n
Last fall, my little nephew didn’t know which team to cheer for…

 

It’s Spring! That means Baseball! Hopefully it also means that there will be no more snow or cold. It’s been such a long winterlong, long winter. I’m so ready for the sun!

But today Baseball is back in Boston! The last we saw of our beloved Red Sox was at the celebration parade. Of course, they aren’t starting off their season in Boston. We have to wait for them to come home to get their World Series rings. There is so much more to Boston than the RedSox, but they are the heart of the city.

Last April, Boston suffered a horrendous terrorist attack. I remember the day well, etched in my mind as 9/11 will always haunt me. I remember what a beautiful day 9/11 was. The sun was bright in the sky with hardly a cloud. The day was much like last April. Now the shocking images of people running, smoke, blood and death are etched into my heart as well.

Boston is a small city with the heart of a community. It cut to the core of the city to attack innocent peoplechildren. But it also brought out the best of the city and the people.

The Red Sox created a diversion from our problems, revitalized our spirits, and helped restore a semblance of normalcy…

The Spirit of Boston refuses to submit to terrorism. It rose above and showed the world what it means to be a Bostonian!

It is in that spirit that I donate half the royalties of Fragmented, Book One Boston’s Crimes of Passion

The people of Boston pulled together after the tragedy. Moreover, generous people from all the world gave to the victims. I also realize that the victims have life long injuries. I don’t want them to be forgotten. Giving half my royalties is my small way of doing so…

Tomorrow is Aprilit has been almost a year since the Marathon Bombing. Help me this coming month to help others. If you’re looking for a great mystery to read, try FRAGMENTED! I believe you will enjoy it. Then tell everyone! Help get the word out!

To begin the month, I have lowered the price to $.99 for the first week!

Enjoy today! Enjoy a good baseball game no matter which team you cheer on to win! Enjoy a good book- hopefully Fragmented! Have a great day!

HAVE YOURSELF A MERRY LITTLE CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Holiday Season.
Putting everything on the back burner for a few days. It’s time for family and friends. My family is doing things a tad different this year. My mother-in-law has Alzheimer’s. We usually have Christmas Eve over at my in-laws with my husband’s family, but this year my father-in-law isn’t up for that. So we’re on our own for Christmas Eve. Now for Christmas, it will be the same. I cook. The only time of the year I really cook is Christmas. We are having everyone over at our house, which should be a great time. Looking forward to Christmas dinner.
Now there is a void on Christmas Eve. So we start a new tradition… New isn’t bad. It’s just different. The most important thing is that I’m going to get to enjoy another year with all my kids and hubbie.
My favorite commercial this year is the Apple commercial where the teenage boy goes around filming his family during the holidays. Heart warming.
Take a moment and make a memory. I think this year it has hit me that not everything will stay the same. My husband’s mother…my mother…both are dealing with health issues. My son moved out of state this year. My daughter wants too to…
So I realize that it’s important to stop and enjoy this moment.
My Christmas present to you is SEDUCTIVE LIES! I’ve made it .$99 for a few days—only on AMAZON.

Don’t forget to get a copy of Fragmented. You get a great book to read and know that half of the proceeds will go to a charity!
