With Neighbors Like These is the first book in a new HOA Mystery Series set in the South Carolina Lowcountry.

Murder victims in separate Lowcountry homeowner associations appear to have had only two things in common—they antagonized neighbors and their dead bodies were posed to shock. Are HOA feuds provoking these murders? Kylee Kane, a retired Coast Guard investigator, agrees to help her friend’s HOA management company find the answer. After uncovering decades-old links between the murder victims, Kylee IDs the killer’s next target. Can she foil the third act in the killer’s death-as-theater game or will she be the next corpse on display?


Linda LovelyLinda Lovely has written nine mystery/suspense novels. A journalism major, she spent decades working in PR—an early intro to penning fiction. Whether she’s writing cozy mysteries, historical suspense or thrillers, her novels share one common element —smart, independent heroines. Her work has earned nominations for numerous prestigious awards, ranging from RWA’s Golden Heart for Romantic Suspense to Thriller Nashville’s Silver Falchion for Best Cozy Mystery.

Lovely belongs to Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers, and the South Carolina Writers Association. While Lovely and her husband currently live in Upstate South Carolina, the couple called the Lowcountry home for a dozen years. For more information:
