Summary

Little Woodford has a sleepy high street, a weekly market, a weathered old stone church and lovingly tended allotments. A peaceful, unexciting place, the very heart of middle England. 
 
In Little Woodford no one has fingers in more pies than Olivia Laithwaite, parish councillor, chair of the local WI, wife, mother and all round queen bee. So of course it's Olivia who is first to spot that The Beeches has been sold at last. 
 
Soon rumours begin to swirl around the young widow who has bought this lovely house. Why exactly did she leave London with her beautiful stepdaughter and young sons? Are they running from someone? Hiding something? Though if they are, they won't be the only ones. Sometimes the arrival of newcomers in a community is all it takes to light a fuse...

    A British counterterrorism agent forms an extraordinary alliance with the IRA’s most skillful assassin in this international bestselling thriller.  A leaky old ship has reliably ferried tons of important freight from America to the Old Country in its decades of service to the Irish Republican Army, from automatic rifles to deadly assassins. Now it is berthing with especially precious cargo: couriers holding briefcases filled with millions of crisp American dollars. In one blinding firefight, the shipment is hijacked. The terrorists trust only one man to go after their money—Jig the dancer, their most reliable assassin, who kills without harming the innocent.   Hot on Jig’s trail is Scotland Yard’s renegade detective Frank Pagan, who suspects an inside job. The dark path of hunter and hunted takes the two men through the minefields of the IRA’s war and across the Atlantic to America, where Pagan and Jig are forced to postpone their duel and work together to solve a savage puzzle. Jig is the 1st book in the Frank Pagan Novels, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    The directions were simple: Kill Governor Behler and be out for good. 
     
    Despite the odd request since the mafia typically respects dignitaries, in order to protect his family, he has no choice but to accept the job. He picks the date and location Niagara Falls, New York two hundred and forty miles away. But by the time he returns home, he finds out the assassination attempt failed, his family has been kidnapped, and he has twenty-four hours to set things right if he wants to see them again. 
     
    With time running out, Raymond discovers the real reason they wanted Behler dead and finds out he's placed himself and his family right in the middle of a mafia power struggle. What he doesn't realize is that law enforcement is also closing in.

    “Arnold crafts an engaging story that kept me reading until I finished it. The philanthropy of Sara and Sean, as well as their sense of justice despite possible danger to themselves are nice touches that make the story enjoyable. Add in a bit of humor in the form of their disguises and this is fun read. This is the 9th book in the McKinley mystery series. It can be read as a standalone.” 
    –Christa Reads and Writes 
     
    A cup a day won’t kill you, but a few might.

With their client certain that her mother was poisoned through her coffee of the month club, it has them setting out to Williamsburg, Virginia. But instead of approaching matters from the traditional standpoint, Sean and Sara brew a robust plot and stir Jimmy into the blend, all to get close to their top suspect and grind out the truth. 
     
    Going undercover at Tasty Beans, the coffee company, the three of them work to expose the culprit before anyone else dies.
