Romantic suspense novel with historical Old San Francisco setting

Harmonie released Wil's arm and skipped a few feet ahead of him. She'd reached the corner and paused in the intersection, looking back at Wil. Waiting for him to catch up. He'd fallen behind, lost in his ruminations. He trotted to draw even with Harmonie. Something big and dark caught his eye.

"Harmonie!"

She started to answer, unaware he shouted in frantic warning. "Damn it, girl! Move!"

Wil launched himself at her a split second before a buckboard came careening into the intersection from the cross street, narrowly missing them. Harmonie let out a yelp and landed in a sprawl on the opposing sidewalk; Wil ended up scrambling facedown in the mud. He lifted his head as the wagon swept past and saw a second man standing in the loaded bed. Even as Wil noted the oddity of a passenger there, a blade slashed downward and large conical shapes tumbled into the street. Bouncing right at him.

Barrels. He and Harmonie were still in the path of danger. 


Excerpt

While working a smuggling case for Astute Investigations, Denver detectie Wil Bregon is drawn to San Francisco's rollicking Barbary Coast. Formerly an Eastern lawyer and experienced gun for hire, Wil's not daunted by outlaws and ruffians or prowling foggy dockside taverns. But he isn't prepared for ghostly visitations from his dead wife or finding himself powerfully attracted to a young blonde who bears a noticeable resemblance to his late spouse. Harmonie Ashlar is a charlatan, a girl with a local reputation for staging prnaks for monetary gain. Is she purposely masquerading as Wil's deceased wife as part of some confidence scheme? Has someone paid her to threaten Wil's sanity, or is his own imagination playing tricks on him, in an eerie, inexplicable Sleight of Mind?



Professional Reviews

The Romance Studio
I thorough enjoyed this story. It moved along swiftly, allthe characters were engaging and delightful, and the plot twisted around enough to keep things very interesting. I highly recommend Sleight of Mind. -- Judy Cook

Fallen Angel Reviews
Sleight of Mind is an engaging mystery with a subtle twist that the reader almost overlooks. Ms. Biondine has penned an enthralling whodunit with her own unique twist. -- Joletta
