ChainLinked! Book 1 in the Moccasin Cove Mystery Series by Liz Boeger

CHAINLINKED! is a 77,300-word cozy mystery with romance and tinges of southern humor.  

Ana Callahan is blown off her trailbike when a houseboat explodes killing a security contractor. Then a friend is charged with the murder. Ana came home to Moccasin Cove to turnaround her childhood elementary. While she knows a thing or two about flipping failing schools, she soon discovers the learning curve on solving a murder is steep. 

As Ana performs triage on the troubled school and chases clues to the murder, she finds herself suffering fools in a nightmare of bad press and amateur local politics. After a suspect charter school corporation targets her school for a takeover, she teams up with the school district’s disarming security chief to solve the crime. The losses pile up—her friend’s innocence, her career, the school, and possibly, her heart. In the end, a vindictive killer forces Ana to admit she has a lot to learn about murder.

Set in an industrial beach town on Florida’s Gulf coast, CHAINLINKED! tests the bonds of loyalty among friends, pits unyielding grief of lost love against a reawakened heart, and of course, murder. 

My stint as a bikini model peaked in kindergarten. My fallback career as a mystery writer didn’t kick in until I hit the mid-century mark. Thirty-years in between, I’ve wrangled children, adults, a Florida panther, and gators and snakes as teacher and school administrator. Don’t ask me about my work with the U.S. Secret Service, I’ve sworn myself to secrecy.
