Em Ridge Mysteries

The Bitter End

What can possibly go wrong in the Bermuda Triangle? For the past two weeks, boat delivery Captain Em Ridge has been ferrying a well-known TV conspiracy-theorist around the waters of the Bermuda Triangle. She is tired of his tales of reptilian governments, middle-earth civilizations and of course, all his theories about the Bermuda Triangle. Em just wants to finish up this assignment, get paid, and head back to her home in Maine. But a chance sighting finds them aboard a "ghost sailboat". The salon is set neatly for supper, wine in the glasses, pots on the stove, bread on the table and not a soul aboard. Worse, she knows this boat. When a black cat slinks noiselessly around her feet, Em’s alarm hikes up to horror. Has someone purposely set this boat out here? Is it a warning? To her? Finding this boat plunges Em into a decades old mystery that threatens not only her, but her entire family.

Night Watch

Desolate Maine shores... Murder... And peace slipping away on the outgoing tide... 

For yacht delivery captain, Em Ridge, having a billionaire's daughter go overboard on her first captaining job is not a good beginning. The sailboat is new, state of the art, her crew on this trip include two close sailing friends. But an unknown fourth, who can't even tie a bowline, and the unruly owner's daughter turn the idyllic trip into an adventure not wanted. 

Two years ago Em buried her husband, her soulmate, her sailing buddy, and with him buried a secret. As hours on the open seas slide by, secrets are resurrected that tie Em's past to a present, awash with murder and deception. 

Will Em's career go overboard? Will the investigating detective help her or hurt her? Any why does the best boat delivery captain on the east coast pull at her heart strings? 

The oft foggy coast of Maine holds secrets it does not want to give up, and a lot of bodies can be hidden in The Pine Tree State's largest city. 

"Linda Hall is one of my favorite mystery-suspense writers. Night Watch is full of twists and turns. It grabbed my attention in the beginning and kept it all the way through the book. I especially loved her main character and can't wait to read the next book in her series." Patricia Rushford, author of Sins of the Mother
