I am looking for a title to a book in this series so I can post it to get it to read. I The description of the book is as follows: Detective J.P. Beaumont marries for the 3rd time. The woman in question's name is Anne Corley. She is an AZ copper heiress. She was last married to a doctor, who died. She is very pretty and Beaumont falls for her. They get married and on their wedding day, she tries to kill Beaumont, so he has to shoot her in self defense. It turns out that she is a serial killer. She also killed her father, and previous husband, I think. That's the plot - I got it from a description in"Partners in Crime", a mystery with Beaumont and Sheriff Joanna Brady. I can't wait to read it, as I love the Beaumont character! Please let me know if anyone has heard of this book and can give me the exact title and number in this series. Thanks, all!

#1 in the J P Beaumont series - Until Proven Guilty.  I like both of her series quite a bit.  I've read the J P Beaumont, Joanna Brady and the Diana Ladd.  I haven't read the Alison Reynolds series though.  I'm gonna WL those!

Marcia you beat me..lol

Geri, I love the Alison Reynolds series!! I wish I had some of them left for you. They go pretty fast. I think a lot of people are discovering them.
