Murder and Treats by Lyncee Shillard and Meet the Character

Creepy story alert! That picture teaser is the thing!

The book is Murder and Treats by Lyncee Shillard, a contemporary suspense.

Lila Maxwell is coaxed into attending All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event by her best friend. Instead of the soul mate promised one Halloween ghoul after another appears at her door until Cowboy Bill.

Jax Carlson has spent the last year focusing all of his attention on starting his own business. Hiring Lila Maxell over the Internet as his project manager was the final piece to his prefect plan. Set to open for business in three days, Jax plans on spending a couple of days on his boat relaxing. However, his friend Erik has a different idea – a speed dating Halloween party.

Jax has spent the night plotting the best revenge possible for Erik until Sally opens the door. The woman dressed in the pale lavender Harem costume ignites a fire that Jax thought was impossible without the aid of his formulated dating list.

After a night of mind blowing sex, Lila sneaks out before they exchange real names believing it was no more than a one-night stand.

Lila’s first day is full of surprises, the biggest being Cowboy Bill is actually her new boss, Jax Carlson. She thinks keeping her hormones in check while convincing Jax that love doesn’t follow a formula is complication enough until she learns the participants of the All Treats speed dating event are being killed.

And here I have Lila for a little chat.

Hi Lila, and thank you for being here. I know you have just relocated to my Florida, the sunny state. How is that working out for you?

It sucks. My best friend talks me into going to a Halloween theme speed dating thing. What kind of friend does that? I need new friends.

The dating thing didn’t go?

Oh it went. Great sex. Possibly the best sex in My. Life.

I’m confused. What’s the problem?

First when the guy wearing his cowboy costume, he’s a total jerk. Second, people from the speed dating thing are dying.

That has to be scary.

You have no idea. Can we talk about something else?

Sure. Tell us something about you. What do like to do on your spare time?

Cook. And everything I make goes great with wine. I feel that is very important.

What is one of your favorite dishes?

A shrimp sub. It’s sort of a shrimp po-boi only ten times better. It’s wine marinated shrimp, bacon, tomatoes, and a cream wine sauce.

Thank you for coming by, Lila!

About the Author 

I live in cold Northern Michigan. Where we have summer for 2 days every year. I spend those 2 days at the beach – I live less than ½ mile from Lake Michigan. When I’m not writing about murder, steamy sex, and paranormal, I love to read. I read EVERYTHING! And I’m always looking for something new.

I’ve been married to the best man in the world for over 35 years. Have two amazing kids that are grown and doing their own thing. Just as I was getting into the empty nest thing, I was blessed with another child. So, I’m currently doing 7 again…. He argues everything! Thank goodness for doughnuts!

I’m also a bit of a shutterbug and make self-care products.

Come and hang out with me and we’ll talk about doughnuts, vodka, wine, and books 😊
