Tour WITH EXCERPT & REVIEW for Swing into Murder by Vanessa M. Knight



Mystery w/Romantic elements



Harper Lange is a grade school teacher with a secret. Well, since her husband passed away, she hasn’t been to the DeVout swinger’s club—so her secret life has dried up to Harry Potter binges and Merlot. Clubs are no fun without her husband by her side. When Las Vegas’ finest knock on her door reopening her husband’s case, she finds herself back at DeVout trying to figure out who would want to kill her husband. Kill her husband. She never thought she’d be thinking those words, let alone interrogating her friends. With everything going on, she should be hiding in the corner with a full bottle of wine and a box of donuts, like a normal person. Instead, she’s roaming around the streets of Las Vegas getting hot and bothered with Detective Alex Cabrero—heavy on the bothered. The man can’t seem to understand why she’d want to find answers—or that she’ll go wherever the information leads—even if it means she has to drag the detective along. Harper needs to find the truth before she becomes the next victim.



As darkness covered the Vegas Valley, Harper sat in her car looking at the Byrnes’ house that doubled as a club. Just staring. The 5,000 square foot house lit up like a virginal Christmas tree. White lights strategically pointed at windows and trees. It was beautiful.

She was a little early. Which gave her time to think. And thinking was bad. Thinking reminded her of the last night Brad and she had stopped into the house. Madeline and Paul had come with them that night. A couples’ date. They’d sat in the house as soft rock played over the speakers.

She’d held hands with Brad as they’d laughed. “Nutmeg.” He’d whispered her nickname. The one he’d called her because she was a little nutty and sweet. It had been a great night with friends. And a few hours later, he’d been gone. Maybe if she’d known it would be the last time they’d be there, she would’ve done something different. Taken a picture. Listened longer.

But she hadn’t. She’d treated it like any other night.

And now he was gone. She couldn’t go back. Not to that night. And not to that house. The house currently sitting in front of her.

Lights danced in the windows of the two-floor mansion nestled in the hills of Lake Las Vegas. She’d parked her car along the street. The driveway was already filled with cars.

The detective would be here any minute. Any minute she’d have to walk in, but she didn’t want to. She didn’t want to face the past. She wanted to face her flat screen with a pint of Ben and Jerry’s and pretend today didn’t exist—just pretend none of this was happening. But life never worked that way.


AUTHOR Bio and Links

Who is Vanessa M. Knight? Well, I’m an author. Wow. After years and years of wanting to use those words, that is fun to say. It’s almost as fun as supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. Did I spell that right?

I write contemporary romantic suspense.

I live in Chicagoland with my family and menagerie of four-legged friends. In my mind, these lovely animals do everything as they should. I’m the alpha, keeping peace and harmony amongst my humble servants. In real life, they own me. I’m the maid, here for their feeding pleasure. Well, that and to clean up their messes.

When not catering to the needs of adorably-furry faces, I slug through the nine-to-five grind and head home so I can write. Of course, that’s after I make dinner and clean the house and all the other tasks that go into family life. So really, I work, cater to animals and my family… and then, if I don’t fall face-first into bed, I write. I love putting my characters into crazy situations and watching how they react. I hope you love reading about them.

I love to hear from fans. I can be found on Facebook at VanessaMKnight and at
