A DATE TO DIE FOR by Bonnie R. Paulson {Excerpt}


Release Day - A Date to Die for: 5, 6, & 7: Dirty Twist, Check Mate, & Last Chance On Sale $.99!!

Clenching my jaw, I climbed from the cab of the truck and locked the door. Pocketing the keys, I glanced left and right as I crossed the street. My shoes scraped softly on the concrete sidewalk.
“Stop. Just wait.” I spoke to no one and yet to myself. So I did what I said and leaned against the side of the building next door to the bar. I didn’t know what I was doing, or getting myself into.
Neon lights screamed their agreement that I had picked the right place to start. I couldn’t go in there like the stupid women in horror flicks – unprepared and without anyone knowing what was going on.
I swiped my phone and dialed nine-one-one.
A female operator answered.
“I need help. I believe my… whatever, I think my friend is being held by a killer and I need help.” Oh, I’d bet money the operator was ready to call an ambulance for me.
“Okay, ma’am. Slow down. Can you tell me where you’re at?” She spoke calmly, which oddly enough only increased my alarm.
I moved my dry tongue against the roof of my mouth. Come on, Molly. You’re not crazy. Someone is trying to kill you. You’re not wrong or imagining things. Demand someone come. “I’m at the bar on Thirty-Second and Pine. I need help. Please.”
The dispatcher cleared her throat, enunciating each word. “Ma’am, I understand you’re scared. We already received a call from that location. We have officers on their way. Can you describe the situation? Where are the victims now?”
“Victims?” What victims? Who had called? “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”


Date to Die for: Series

#1 When dating ends in deaths and threats, Molly might be better off staying single. During one of Molly’s weekly meet-ups with her girls at their regular bar, Molly succumbs to the duress of her two best friends and begins the aggressive dating they sign her up for online where the pairings are questionable... and dangerous. They’ve entered her in an evening of speed dating. But at the end of the evening she finds an item from her past that raises questions, grief... and danger.

When the number of deaths surpass Molly’s goodnight kisses, her past pushes into the present and Molly loses much more than she gains. A stalker has focused on Molly and refuses to let anyone else date her. But she refuses to be single for the rest of her life.
