The third book in the CJ O'Hara Crime Thrillers series.​

A corpse exposes one of Charleston’s lethal secrets...


Detective CJ O’Hara is finally getting a grip on life. Recently promoted and in a promising relationship, her instincts scream foul play when she responds to a reported heart attack at a bed and breakfast. Smelling a hint of vanilla in the air and noticing scratches on the victim’s back, she suspects she’s looking for a murderess.


After the medical exam reveals poison from a rare plant, surprising links to two similar cold cases appear. As CJ delves deeper, her investigation leads to the darkest corners of the city’s oldest clubs and wealthiest people — and more than one killer.


When her personal life implodes, CJ finds herself juggling her emotions with the increasingly complex case. But with her reputation and another life on the line, time is running out to secure the evidence she needs to stop history from repeating its deadly pattern.


Beautiful Death is the third book in the CJ O’Hara Crime Thrillers Series. Following a seasoned investigator in a series of captivating twists and turns, this fast-paced crime novel is filled with suspense and deception… and an ending you won’t believe.
