FLIRTING CAN BE MURDER: A Murder Mystery Romance Novel   

Start the New Year off right with a little vacation to the South Pacific! What’s a little danger among friends?!  


Widowed Vonni Taylor is looking to heal from a troubled marriage. A restful holiday in the ultra exclusive Privacy Island Resort is just what she needs. Or is it? One guest chokes on a beverage; another guest oversleeps... permanently. And while Vonni might want to take her attraction to a handsome Italian nobleman further, she has more important things on her mind... like will she live to see another day?  


Personal security investigator Oliver, the Conte di Battiato, was supposed to have an easy assignment on Privacy Island, but as soon as he arrives, people around him start dropping like flies. When he takes charge of protecting the guests, he finds one particular woman distracting him from his duties--his cara mia, Vonni. Despite his efforts, the death toll mounts. The killer is a cunning one; will Oliver be able to use all his resources to stop the carnage and keep Vonni alive?

Reviewers are saying:

5 Stars! A new murder mystery romance novel to sink your teeth into! A tropical vacation features ten guests and six staff members. Who will survive this exotic... and deadly resort? One by one the murders occur, fast and furiously, and all the while I was rooting for Vonni and Oliver along with a few others in this assortment of vividly drawn characters. Will romance bloom on the ultra-exclusive Privacy Island or will Death wipe out everyone except for the killer? Grab your copy, a beach chair, and a delicious chi-chi drink and then indulge yourself with this perfect puzzle set in the South Pacific and in Tuscany!--Norwood Reviews

5 Stars! Secluded on a tropical island dedicated to the mega-wealthy are a variety of guests: a gambler, a widow, a divorcee, a flunkey, a drunkard, a gossip queen, a Hollywood actor, a nymphomaniac, a Gypsy, and an Italian count. One of these guests might also be doubling as a psychopath with his or her own agenda. Or is the killer one of the staff? The pace is fast, the murders come quickly, and the sexual tension is delicious! FLIRTING CAN BE MURDER serves a double dish of murder and romance that keeps you guessing.--Mystery Maven’s Reviews

A week’s vacation at an exclusive, secluded, tropical resort on the mythical Privacy Island? Sign me up! Oh wait. Hidden among the guests and staffers is a cold-blooded serial killer! When a South Pacific storm wipes out communication avenues, these folks become sitting ducks, waiting to be slaughtered. Who is this audacious murderer? Guessing is part of the fun! Each character is well-developed and they come alive for the reader... but then some of them exit the island permanently. Ms. Knight keeps the tensions high as she weaves her tale of life and death and romance. Two thumbs up!--On The Edge Reviews  

5 Stars! A Vacation to Die For… A luxury airship takes a small company of tourists to a secluded South Pacific resort called Privacy Island. The vacationers are a mixed bunch, including a Hollywood film star, a cardsharp, sex siren, and an alcoholic to name but a few. All have a reason to be disliked. Another of the guests, a gypsy fortune teller, gives chilling tarot card readings and builds suspense to the tale as guests are picked off one-by-one. Vonni Taylor, a stunning young woman and survivor from a bad marriage, soon becomes the main protagonist, and leads the reader to hope upon hope she is not the murderer. She becomes attracted to a handsome nobleman, Conte di Battiato, the wealthy heir to an Italian winery who is posing as a holidaymaker. In reality, he is a private detective and starts falling for Vonni. Forever concerned for his welfare, his mother becomes involved. She is quite aware that an American beauty like Vonnie might not be accepted by their aristocratic family. What are his mother’s intentions? And are the murders solved? A great five-star read to find out! Highly recommended--Martin Jackson Reviews

5 Stars Romance and Murder: A Tantalizing Combination! This modern day, tropical version of Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None contains Knight’s usual cast of interesting and sometimes eccentric characters and unique style of writing. It also has a subplot of romance amid the murder and mayhem that helps keep the reader interested and turning the pages. The reader keeps wondering who will be next? Will anyone but the killer survive? Will the lead character Vonni Taylor’s island romance survive or become a victim as do so many of the characters who are thrown together in a tropical paradise in the south Pacific? Read the novel to find out. You won’t be disappointed!--Steve Arnett Reviews

A pleasure to read such a well written book, Susanne... Watch out... Flirting can be Dangerous!!!--Reader Comment

5 Stars! A fantastic story. This is a fantastic read, full of suspense and I was unable to work out who did it. A great conclusion to a fantastic story. Just ordered more books by the author.--Reader Review 

I read your book in one day and I liked it very much.  I had to finish so I delayed dinner till 7!--Reader Comment

4 Stars! Entertaining! Vonni was an interesting character, growing somewhat painfully after years of near-abuse. The murder mystery side to the story was fine, and the changing POV done without any "head hopping"... Reader Review
