Worlds of imagination by Sara B. Gauldin
This series starter may be familiar to a few readers. I took my novella, To Conspire and reworked it entirely, adding almost 40,000 words. The cliffhanger is gone, and in its place is action and plot twists that nobody saw coming.
Here are a few of the reviews that the novella, To Conspire had earned:

I was gifted a copy of this story, and honestly I don’t typically read detective stories or mysteries. However, reading Sara Gauldin’s book was like watching CSI. I admired Avery James, a strong female cop who is smart, confident, and determined. As a rookie cop with much to prove, she is unknowingly thrown into a web of deceit and conspiracy. Although Avery is a tough “go-getter,” you can still sense her level of vulnerabilities and her feelings towards civilians. With the help of an unexpected partner-Kain, the two of them piece together the crimes of conspiracy only to discover they have both been setup…well sort of… but I won’t give away the story. Both Avery and Kain are witty, and somewhat prejudge one another from the outset, but their commonality for justice makes them a good tag-team. I could sense the chemistry developing between them, so I wasn’t surprised when a romance developed.
The story itself was very creative, and I can visualize Jody Foster playing Avery James if this story were to become a screenplay for a movie. I would have given this story five stars, but I felt it was kind of short. Other than that, I found myself trying to figure out what happened right along with the characters in the book. I am not sure if this was Sara’s first book, but she did great job in creating suspense, mystery, and keeping it interesting throughout. Her attention to details makes all the characters realistic, and the development of the plot came together like a well-pieced puzzle.
Sara Gauldin is definitely on her way to becoming the next female version of James Patterson

I love books, especially crime dramas, with strong female characters. There is nothing better than vicariously experiencing the darker side of life through the eyes of a character like this. Not many writers can put you in the shoes of the protagonist, but his one did. A book that I would (and will) recommend to others.

This is a fast paced story unfolding secrets and mysteries with romantic intrigue. The twists of history and excitement will hook you. Conspiracy at all levels of public infrastructure is brought into question as the dramas progress. The story is based on a Detective, a diminutive Virginia who finds policing in high heels an issue, being ordered by her commanding officer to investigate the disappearances of several bankers. Done “off record.” she is teamed up with a gentleman who ultimately causes her to question her rather simplistic views on crime: a great read.
