An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.
Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.
When a tip reveals the killer’s location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

#1: I started Seismic Crimes three times until I had a beginning I liked.
#2: I wrote 26 pages of notes about California, Chinatown, and earthquakes.
#3: Beth’s last name came from Jackie Kennedy, so I wanted to do the same thing with her mother’s maiden name, which is Reagan after Nancy Reagan.
#4: I wrote the catfish in Donovan’s car into the story because of the catfish I saw swimming around my front step when Tropical Storm Fay stuck around for about a week and caused wide-spread flooding.
#5: The U.S. Geological Survey reported that there was a 62% chance an earthquake with a magnitude of 6.7 or greater would hit the Bay Area before 2052, most likely occurring at the San Andrea Fault…that quake happens in Seismic Crimes!
In Seismic Crimes and Frozen Crimes, Beth and Donovan had a Thanksgiving dinner. Do they still celebrate Thanksgiving?
After their Thanksgiving dinner in Frozen Crimes, they learned more about Thanksgiving, such as it’s true history and how it hurts Native American Indigenous Peoples to see celebrations on this day (it’s their day of mourning). That was the last time they had a big feast on this day. Now, they celebrate Truthsgiving, donate to Indigenous-run organizations, and support Florida tribes. They get takeout instead. No turkey, pumpkin, squash, etc.
