Cynthia Hamilton is the author of nine books, which include fiction, mystery and memoir. SPOUSE TRAP is the first book in her Madeline Dawkins Mystery Series, which takes place in Santa Barbara, a town she is happy to have called her home for forty years. It is followed by A HIGH PRICE TO PAY, GIRL TRAP, and THE TROUBLE WITH PARADISE. She is currently at work on the fifth book in the series.
FINDING RUTH was inspired by a photograph she found of her mother taken in 1949 while moving her into an Alzheimer’s facility. It was written as a means to discover who her mother was as a person in her own right, outside her role as “Mom”. ONCE UPON A LYME… A TALE OF TWO JOURNEYS chronicles her battle with a misdiagnosed disease and the unexpected upside of becoming a writer as a means of coping with the pain. LUCKY AT LOVE, ALLIGATORS IN THE TREES, and GOLDEN STATE are lighthearted looks at life, love and the resiliency of the human heart.

THE TROUBLE WITH PARADISE (Madeline Dawkins Mystery #4)
Life in beautiful Santa Barbara County will never be the same for two grieving widows. One is serving a lengthy sentence for the bizarre tractor death of her much older, land-rich husband. The other is convinced her husband’s death was no suicide.
During Madeline’s four-month convalescence, Steven Ridley—her jailbird ex—manages to get parole on the pretext of retraining inmates for their reentry into society. He has the audacity to enlist Mike’s help to find out if inmate Lindsay Bartholomew had been set up to take the fall for her husband’s death.
Santa Barbara D.A. Conrad Adams makes a personal appeal to MDPI on behalf of Natalie Sheckle, hoping Madeline and Mike can prove whether her husband took his own life, or if someone stitched him up for his own murder.
Never ones to shy away from longshots or lost causes, the duo dives into both cases. But now they must figure out what secrets these two men took to their graves.
