I'm delighted to have Ms. Liza O'Connor over, mainly because she always sends me lots of pretty graphics to play with. Before we move on to her new release, I should tell you The Troublesome Apprentice (Book 1 in The Adventures of Xavier and Vic), is currently on special sale. You can grab it for the low price of $0.99 between now and September 21st.
Now let's learn more about Book 2!
The Adventures of
Xavier & Vic
The Missing Partner
By Liza O’Connor
Cases to be Resolved:
The ‘New Woman’ Who Lost Her Old Mind
The Lost Servant of Dante’s Hell
The Disappearance of a Very Important Man
The Abduction of Sneaky Snake by a Grand Elephant
The Cat Who Wore Too Much
Vic Hamilton takes the reins of the investigation office, while Xavier Thorn disappears on an assignment for the British government. Her caseload is entirely ‘lost and recovery’ cases. In the midst of solving all her client’s problems, she learns that the government has lost Xavier. With the help of the gypsy pirate Jacko, and her driver Davy, Vic rushes against time to rescue everyone.
Most alarming, she befriends and hires a dangerous criminal as an employee of Xavier Thorn’s Private Inquiries—without Xavier’s permission.

The Missing Partner
Xavier pulled her to him and slammed the door shut. “I am very tempted to lock you in this room until I can return and sort this matter out. Clearly you are up to something that has Davy worried.”
Vic’s stubborn expression and lack of denial worried him further.
“Do you recall the promise we made to each other? Not to take any risks more than necessary?”
She studied her feet a long moment before nodding.
“I suspect whatever you have done or plan to do I would consider a violation of our agreement.”
She stared at the door and refused to answer.
“Vic…I’m not trying to clip your wings. But if Davy thinks he cannot keep you safe, then at least accept a better partner in crime.”
She sighed and almost placed her head on his chest. Upon a closer look at the filthy shirt, she stepped back, but stared up with resignation. “I would much rather you were my partner.”
“Believe me, now I know you are up to mischief, I will end this damn assignment as fast as I can.”
Her eyes filled with worry. “Don’t rush and put yourself in danger. I’m not involved in anything too serious. Davy is just an old woman.”
“Davy spent twenty years in one of the roughest prisons in England. He is not ‘an old woman.’” He sighed at her stubborn visage. “However, Davy is very fond of you and may be overprotective.”
“Then use Jacko. The man is completely fearless and objective.”
Scuffing her shoe on the floor, she muttered, “All right.”
“And if a pirate objects to your plans, then I declare you in violation of our agreement and want your promise you will stop.”
I’m tired of telling my proper bio. So you get the improper bio.
Liza O’Connor was raised by feral cats, which explains a great deal, such as why she has no manners, is always getting in trouble, and doesn’t behave like a proper author and give you a proper bio.
She is highly unpredictable, both in real life and her stories, and presently is writing humorous romances. Please buy these books, because otherwise, she’ll become grumpy and write troubled novels instead. They will likely traumatize you.
