Paige Turner Mystery Series : Titles in Order

Book 5
From the national bestselling author of Murder on a Hot Tin Roof.
Paige Turner’s skills as a crime reporter and mystery novelist have earned her an intriguing job opportunity. Sabrina Stanhope of Gramercy Park wants her to look into the murder of Virginia Pratt, a young secretary whose naked body was found in Central Park—with the understanding that Paige keeps her exclusive investigation off the record and out of her work for Daring Detective magazine.
Virginia was more than a secretary—she worked nights as a high priced call girl in Sabrina’s employ. Should word get out, the resulting scandal could be devastating not only to Sabrina’s secret enterprise, but to some of Manhattan’s wealthiest movers and shakers. Now, Paige must become a daring detective herself, even if it means going undercover to entice the interest of a killer.

Book 4
From the national bestselling author of How to Marry a Murderer.
Intrepid crime magazine reporter and mystery novelist Paige Turner has a taste for danger. She’s nearly met her maker more than once in the course of her sleuthing. But a New York heat wave is more daunting than any murderous thug, so when her neighbor Abby announces she has free Broadway tickets, Paige leaps at the chance to sit in an air conditioned theater. The show is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, with Abby’s handsome friend Gray Gordon stepping in for the lead. 
Gray’s performance knocks ’em dead, but when Abby and Paige stop at his apartment the next morning to congratulate him, they find someone’s done the same to him. Enlisting Abby as her deputy, Paige embarks on a sweltering, madcap, and decidedly dangerous quest for the killer that has her springing all over the city like an overheated feline.
Book 2
From the national bestselling author of Murderers Prefer Blondes.
All Paige Turner wants for Christmas is to make it through the season alive. New York City in 1954 can be bad for a girl’s health, especially if she’s a staff writer for a pulp mystery magazine who can’t help getting a little too involved in her work. Not that she’s looking for trouble this time; Detective Dan Street, her new love, has forbidden her from ever making like Sam Spade again.
But what’s a girl to do when her late husband’s army buddy turns up with a tale like something out of Daring Detective magazine? His sister murdered. A stash of diamonds to die for hidden in a box of oatmeal. The mystery is a Christmas present Paige can’t resist opening. But with the killer hot on her trail, Paige faces the chilling possibility that this Christmas might be her last.
