The Sedona West Mysteries are a three book series detailing how a lovely young woman recovers from nasty divorce, how she handles being involved in not one murder but too many, and how she finally gets her happily ever after... or does she??
Here are the titles:
SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES--Book One
BREAKS AN EGG--Book Two
PUSHES UP DAISIES--Book Three
I started this series because I missed being able to spend more time with my characters as I did in my Minx Tobin murder mystery series. Watching Sedona recover and grow from her circumstances was very satisfying for me. She also becomes very resourceful. And here’s a secret... I had one man in mind for her when I began but it turns out she chose somebody else! Let me tell you, that was a surprise!
So here is the info on SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES.
SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES--Book One
Sedona gets more than she bargains for when she moves to the idyllic town of Cozy Haven. Her intention is to piece together her shattered life. But Fate decides to throw major roadblocks in her way. First, the hunky sheriff has his eye on her. Second, a celebrity psychologist tries to get her on his private couch. Third, her disreputable ex husband unexpectedly makes an appearance. And fourth, a Girl-Night party turns into an actual Murder party... with all the guests drugged by sedatives in the wine. Talk about a major hangover! And now, Sedona finds herself under the sheriff’s scrutiny as a possible murder suspect. She had the means, the motive, and the opportunity to kill the deceased so how can she convince everyone that she’s innocent?
After waking up with the hangover of the century, Sedona is shocked to learn she is a murder suspect! Can she actually be the killer?

Here are some fabulous reviews:
5 Stars! I adore Ms. Knight’s Minx Tobin Murder Mystery series so I was very excited to learn of this new one: the three book Sedona West Mystery series. Book 1: SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES tells of a newly divorced woman starting over. Will she get her second chance at love? Spoiler Alert: Not in this book, she doesn’t. But things look hopeful that Sedona will decide on her man in Book 2 or 3. As we soon learn, Sedona is in a “candy store” phase when it comes to men... and oh, what men to chose from! In this book, we have a very satisfying murder (!) that then comes with a satisfying conclusion. Looking forward to Book 2: BREAKS AN EGG.--Mystery Maven’s Reviews
5 Kisses! We first discovered this author in the 90s (!) and Ms. Knight keeps getting better and better. SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES is the first in a 3 book series, where, to be blunt, a murder victim sleeps with the fishes! Realistic characters, idyllic setting (except for the murder), and an evolving love story, this mystery novel has it all. Highly recommended.--The Romance Guide
For my “Tidbit From Real Life” that I always like to include in my books, I’ll tell you about an inside joke. Dr. Harrison Oakdale is a celebrity psychiatrist with a little too much ego for his own good. When he sees what he thinks is an interloper on his vacation rental land, he assumes she, Sedona, is there to provide him with a night of pleasure--a celebrity groupie. Then he spots a book cover by her side that is identical to one of his bestsellers. I’ll let Harrison describe his first encounter with Sedona:
“Of course, you’re reading the perfect book.” He gestured to the hardcover on the dock, next to her lounger chair, and then smirked.
But she didn’t get the connection. She glanced down at the book, and then up at him. Her eyebrows formed a vee of confusion. “This book?”
He’d forgive her for being obtuse. “Certainly. My book was on the New York Times best-seller list for thirty weeks in a row last year.”
Sure, he was bragging, but he was entitled to gloat every now and then.
“This is your book?” she asked.
He didn’t come out here to talk about his books. “Naturally.”
“You wrote The Creative Writing Workbook?”
“What? No, I...” He took a good look at the book and sure enough, the title was as she said, not his Grow Into Your Life best-seller. The Creative Writing Workbook was authored by a woman.
The joke here is that the book in question is my book. Here’s the cover:
I certainly had fun with that one!
I hope you enjoy Sedona West’s first adventure in SLEEPS WITH THE FISHES! Next up is BREAKS AN EGG.
