Guest Post/Virtual Tour ~ Her Final Watch by Marguerite Ashton

Morgan Danvers of Her Final Watch

Hi. I’m Morgan Danvers, Lily’s best friend and partner in Promised Lies—the first book in the Detective Blanchette series. Some may remember me as Chelsey before that silly author had the nerve to kill me off in the other novel, Led by Lies. Well thank goodness, she decided to expand the book and keep me alive this time around. Yes, through fan comments and reviews I got a chance to live!

So here we are, celebrating the release of Her Final Watch. Am I happy that I had to sit this one out? No. However, I’m looking forward to my return in The Parolee, which will be released in 2018.

Back to Lily. We met in the police academy and have been friends ever since, which gives me license to razz her during my post. To cover my butt, I’m going to say, “I love you, Lily,” in advance.

At times, I think Lily doesn’t want to admit she’d be more relaxed if she were like me. She’s so uptight. Always wearing pantsuits and loafers. If I could just get her out of those loafers for one week, and give her a pair of boots that matched one of my flashy outfits, she would be a new woman.

So, let’s see, being Lily's partner is exasperating. But I can probably understand some of the reasons. Her mom is a control freak, and the last thing she wants is to be like her mother. Thank goodness for her dad. He’s cool. I wish I had him for a father.

Anyway, Lily’s all about family and work. She needs stability in her life. That’s where I come along. We balance each other out, during a case and situations in general. We tell each other the truth. Even if the other one doesn’t want to hear it. Like her keeping the pregnancy a secret. She knows she can’t keep it from Sarge much longer.

Of course, in the end, I’ll be there to back her up.

Speaking second-hand truths can be deadly …

Detective Lily Blanchette will stop at nothing to solve a murder. Her current case involves the killing of an undercover cop working to bring down the mob for prostitution and drugs.

But Lily’s usual laser-like focus on the case has been disrupted.

Two weeks earlier, she learned she was pregnant by her murderous husband whom she’d killed in self-defense. Unsure whether to keep her baby or place the child of this cruel man up for adoption, Lily keeps the pregnancy a secret from her colleagues.

Under mounting pressure to solve the case, Lily arranges a sit-down with a local mob boss only to find out her suspect is also wanted by them. But before Lily can warn her team, she and her new partner, Jeremiah, are shot at, and another body is found.

When she discovers Jeremiah has a connection with the underworld, she is pulled into a conflict that swirls around the boss’s son who’s hell-bent on revenge.

To add to the complexity of the situation, Lily learns that her victim might still be alive if it wasn’t for opportunistic Assistant District Attorney, Ibee Walters, who has a twisted vision of justice.

As Lily gets closer to finding the killer, she unravels ugly secrets that point to Ibee and Jeremiah – placing Lily’s life and her unborn child in danger.

When Marguerite Ashton was in her twenties, she took up acting but realized she preferred to work behind the camera, writing crime fiction. A few years later, she married an IT Geek and settled down with her role as wife, mom, and writer. Five kids later, she founded the Crime Writer’s Panel and began working with former law enforcement investigators to create; Criminal Lines Blog, an online library for crime writers who need help with their book research.

She’s a workaholic who hides in her writer’s attic, plotting out her next book and stalking Pinterest for the next avocado recipe.

A member of Sisters in Crime, Marguerite grew up in Colorado, but is now happily living in Wisconsin and playing as much golf as possible.

Excerpt ~

Detective Ariel Weeks stabbed at the small block of ice until it split into several pieces across the counter. She tossed the jagged cubes into the glass and made her client a drink.

In less than twenty-four hours, Ariel would no longer have to use the name Jasmine and keep men company to protect her cover. All she needed to do was make it through this last night and she’d be allowed to be who she was; a mom just doing her job.

After gathering evidence and recording all the data she had, it would be hard to detach. Towards the end, she’d learned things she wished weren’t true, leaving her stomach in tattered knots.

Back at home, there were two reasons Ariel would never take on another undercover assignment.

Click.

Ariel ground her teeth as the door to Cabin D opened and closed. She could feel Mikey Surace, the mob boss’s son, staring at the backless white dress she wore at his request.

The man who smiled at the sight of blood was standing behind her, breathing heavily.
