“ A self-described tough blonde from Brooklyn, Marian is the Amazon bestselling author of The Jake Carrington Mysteries, a gritty romantic suspense series.

As far back as she could remember, Marian loved to read. As a child, she was especially intrigued by the Daily News crime reports.

In her youth she knew someone who was murdered. The killer was never found. This event ignited Marian’s desire to write books where good prevails, even in the darkest times.

Marian lives in New England with husband. They have been married for more than thirty-five years.

If a story isn't coming to me on a certain day, I switch to my other works in progress. If a story still isn't screaming at me, I jump over to a writing prompt group I belong to and start on one of the prompts. By the time I finish the first paragraph, my own stories start communicating with me and my fingers fly across the key boards.(less)
Marian Lanouette I love my characters and their stories, but the best thing is traveling and meeting readers. It has been a wonderful few years and I never tire of it.

Burn in Hell, A Jake Carrington Mystery (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:37PM
Description: A botched missing person’s case. A nervous Mob boss. Lt. Jake Carrington’s gut tells him Phil Lucci is cagey for a good reason. Jake can see the case was mishandled from the beginning. Was it sloppy police work or did Lucci's hand reach as far as the WPD? It’s Jake job to find those answers. Then Jake meets Kyra Russell, a woman with an unusual job--she runs the local crematory. Despite the attraction between them, Jake becomes more and more suspicious of Kyra. Her gambling problem has already cost her a marriage and custody of her son. She also happens to be friends with Phil Lucci. Kyra assures Jake that it's just a coincidence, but Jake's experience on the job taught him not to believe in them. Could Kyra be burning bodies for the mob at the crematory?

Quirky characters and mystery with a touchy ghosty.

Good mystery, quirky characters, and a budding romance and a cool ghost will keep you reading. I'm a big fan of London's Port Danby series.
