Reviews for FINDERS KEEPERS

  • “When it comes to writing compelling, knife-to-your-throat thrillers, Murphy’s the real deal.”—Rick Mofina, USA Today Bestselling Author of Search For Her
  • “Luke Murphy knows Vegas, he knows police procedure, and he knows how to keep us in suspense. Calvin Watters is one bad ass character, and he’s the good guy. Murphy ramps up the action to new levels in Finders Keepers—action, suspense, plot twists. From the moment Watters shows up on the page, Murphy pushes the gambit right to the end.”—Jeff Buick, bestselling author of The Wrong Side of Murder
  • “With Finders Keepers, Luke Murphy gives us a drag race of a story; full throttle on page one, and it never lets up. Grab this one. It’s a riveting ride.” –James Thayer, bestselling author of House of Eight Orchids

Hard Byte

Romantic Comedy

“I have never before laughed so hard, out loud, while reading a book! A wonderful mix of saucy situations and laugh-til-you-cry humor!”

“During a time when many are craving something to laugh about, Misha Bell has published hilarious novels that entertain with a believable story wrapped up in sidesplitting dialogue. PHENOMENAL!”

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of facial hair must be in want of a shave. And tidying. And a fake date.

My name is Holly Hyman. I love order and prime numbers—and I’m in trouble. The company I work for is pivoting, and not in a way I like. Our new management? Alex Chortsky, a gorgeous, scruffy Russian devil. Our new direction? VR entertainment of the spicy kind.

Maybe I wouldn’t mind it so much if my life’s work wasn’t meant for children. Or if I hadn’t accidentally hooked up with a VR version of my wickedly handsome boss.

The only way to save my dream project is to make a Faustian bargain. For one night, I pretend to be Alex Chortsky’s girlfriend.

What could possibly go wrong?

NOTE: This is a standalone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedy featuring a quirky, nerdy Anglophile heroine, a scorching hot Russian hero, and an unruly, oversized puppy. If any of the above is not your cup of tea, run away now. Otherwise, buckle in for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.

An Unwitting Trickster

Young Adult. Mythology

With more questions than answers, Luke cautiously agrees to accompany his “brother” back to Asperian, but the travel portal rejects him, leaving him behind to continue his mundane life of trickery. When interplanetary soldiers show up intent on killing him, he’s forced into hiding and his list of unanswered questions grows.

Will Luke remain trapped on Earth forever, pulling meaningless pranks? Or will he finally figure out his true purpose?

Susan: A Jane Austen Prequel

Historical Fiction

Susan is a Jane Austen Prequel (or Pride and Prejudice Variation) brilliantly capturing Austen’s own Lady Susan as a young girl.

As the BookLife review put it for Publishers Weekly: “McVeigh’s prose and plotting are pitch-perfect. Emma mingles with Pride and Prejudice in a delightful confrontation between the two books’ worlds… This Austen-inspired novel echoes the master herself.”

Familiar characters abound – Frank Churchill, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Darcy himself – but Susan – mischievous and manipulative – is the star. This is Austen that even Austen might have loved, with a touch of Georgette Heyer in the romantic sections. Fans of Bridgerton will also relish this classic regency romance, the first in a six-book series.

Sixteen-year-old Susan Smithson – pretty but poor, clever but capricious – has just been expelled from a school for young ladies in London.

At the mansion of the formidable Lady Catherine de Bourgh, she attracts a raffish young nobleman. But, at the first hint of scandal, her guardian dispatches her to her uncle Collins’ rectory in Kent, where her sensible cousin Alicia lives and “where nothing ever happens.”

Here Susan mischievously inspires the local squire to put on a play, with consequences no one could possibly have foreseen. What with the unexpected arrival of Frank Churchill, Alicia’s falling in love and a tumultuous elopement, rural Kent will surely never seem safe again…

The Universe in 3/4 Time

Literary Intrigue

When a mysterious World War II piano appears on a Brussels street one winter’s night, no one could have imagined the events it would set in motion—least of all Audrey Nightingale, the pianist who comes across it. The instrument, of finest rosewood, bears the name of an obscure Czech manufacturer, and inside it, someone carved a Pythagorean symbol.

Audrey convinces two musician friends to help her make sense of this portentous discovery. At the heart of their quest is an extraordinary man: Konstantine Zar, charismatic philosopher-musician from Prague who, during the darkest months of the Occupation in the 1940s, mesmerized his fellow students at the Brussels Conservatory with ideas of universal harmony and the redemptive power of music—antique concepts once revered that must, Zar urged, be revived, to counter the depravity and violence into which Europe was slipping.

From the cobbled backwaters of old Brussels to a Black Forest hideaway…from ghostly Prague to a remote cabin in the Pyrenees, Audrey and her companions set off to uncover the explosive truths behind the abandoned piano, a journey that illuminates not only Zar and his miraculous love story, but also forgotten secrets of music known to the ancients.

Above the Law

Mystery. Thriller.

His crime was unforgivable, but the law protects him.

If an alleged crime is reported to you, but no victim can be found, has a crime been committed? This is exactly the question Billy Jo McCabe asks Detective Mark Friessen when an anonymous woman approaches her and tells her about an unspeakable crime taking place right under the watch of the chief of police, in his own family.

When Billy Jo reaches out to Mark with the story, he just can’t look away. They soon learn family is family, and the victim has been hiding her secret for years. But she’s not just any victim: She’s Cheyenne Potter, the niece of the chief of police, Tolly Shephard.

Mark has always suspected Tolly is a man of many secrets. Because he just can’t sit by, he partners up with Billy Jo to dig into the chief, his family, and the secret they’re hiding. He’s convinced the chief helped bury a crime, but every answer they find only exposes another question. The players in this game are people who use the law to their advantage, and even though neither Mark nor Billy Jo is afraid of a fight, they soon learn that stepping on the wrong toes may lead them into a fight they can’t win. Sometimes the law doesn’t protect the innocent—and it has the best nondisclosures money can buy.

Smart Woman’s Guide to Bitcoin

Business. Investing.

Have you wondered what the big deal is in Bitcoin?

Like you, I was too busy working and raising a family to figure out Bitcoin. It felt like the domain of digital cowboys, gamers, and boys with supercomputers in their basements.

Yet as time went on and Bitcoin’s tremendous growth has made millionaires on the upside and bald men on the downside, I decided to look into it—mostly out of fear of missing out.

If Bitcoin is truly the future of money and it lives up to its promise as a non-inflating currency, then I want to not only get in on the action, but to understand the mathematics, economics, and culture behind it.

This book is for the busy woman who wants to discover Bitcoin and understand enough of its mathematics and technology in order to gain conviction on how she’ll relate to Bitcoin.

  • You will learn about sound and unsound money, and why Bitcoin can never be inflated.
  • You will understand the way Bitcoin is created and why it is stronger and more secure than other cryptocurrencies.
  • You will get an introduction on ways to invite Bitcoin into your life: exchanges, wallets, payment systems, affiliate rewards, and tax considerations.
  • You will also get a dose of Bitcoin FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) and explore reasons why Bitcoin might not be the right date for you.
  • Finally, you will be treated to a short list of influential women in the Bitcoin space to inspire you and let you know what can be done with Bitcoin to make the world a more equitable and inclusive place.

Is Bitcoin the future of money or false hope for a cult of fanatics?

Decide for yourself, and may the coin always bounce in your favor.

Seeing Dura shrivel before his eyes, Pacorus is forced to take drastic action to defeat a foe that is threatening to reduce his city to an impoverished desert outpost. In desperation, he leads Dura’s army into the vastness of the desert to seek a decisive clash with the so-called Chosen One, a battle that will decide the future of the Kingdom of Dura itself.
