Lauren Carr

Best-Selling Mystery Author 

Mac Faraday Mysteries, Lovers in Crime Mysteries, The Thorny Rose Mysteries, and Chris Matheson Cold Case Mysteries 

"The Lady Who Cried Murder: A Mac Faraday Mystery was another heart-stopping romp, and while the mystery and path to its solution were wonderful, I always love the characters as much as the suspense. Five stars." Reviewer: Laurel-Rain Snow, An Interior Journey

"We are swept up into a cat and mouse game in which our heroes and heroines try to stop the killer before he/she attacks again.  But while the reason behind the murders seems clear enough, this is indeed where Carr springs her twist on her readers, flooring us as the truth, the whole truth, becomes known and it turns out not everything was exactly as it seemed." Reviewer: Shana Benedict, ABookVacation 

"This fast-paced story will keep readers guessing who murdered the reality star wannabe and for what reason. The usual red herrings and surprise twists and turns are a welcome addition for anyone who likes to try to solve the crime along with the investigators.The well-developed plot adds to the authenticity of the story giving it a feel of reality. One of those ripped-from-the-headlines types of books that stir emotions and make one wonder if something like this could happen in their city." Reviewer: Edie Dykeman, BelleOnline, Mystery Editor


Khloe Was Dying to be Famous. She Paid with her Life.

 Fame comes at a price. Some pay with their privacy. Others pay with their pride. Khloe Everest paid with her life.

Determined to get her pretty face in front of the cameras, Khloe Everest fakes an abduction only to make a grand entrance in the midst of a press conference held by Spencer's Police Chief David O'Callaghan.

Three years later, after failing to catapult her notoriety into a long-lasting celebrity, Khloe Everest returns to Spencer upon her mother's sudden death and seemingly finds another weapon to propel her into the spotlight. Unfortunately, someone kills her before she can make this entrance.


In Lauren Carr's sixth mystery, Mac Faraday and his friends come up against reality stars, politicians, has-beens, and wannabes. Mac also finds himself face-to-face with an old foe from his past who had managed to escape arrest during their last encounter. Now, Mac sees that his adversary has only become more powerful, and dangerous, with the passage of time.

Intent to not let this killer escape again, Mac and his friends need to put all of their talents together to put a stop to a cold-blooded lady killer.
