Book Cover: Secrets, Lies, & Key Lime Pie
Part of the The Willow Springs series:

Travis Kent is the average Joe of Willow Springs. Great friends, a steady job, and–well, he made peace with a lacking love life a long time ago. Everything changes when Travis is the victim of theft and the very new, very young police chief shows up at his door. Eli Rogers left the big city and his past behind. He may be young, but he’s determined to solve the crime and make a place for himself in Willow Springs.

Secrets, lies, and busybodies are part of small town life, but Travis and Eli would rather not be smack dab in the middle of mysterious drama. The fiery connection they share is more than the two men could ever hope for, but unsolved crimes, sneaky townsfolk, and a hidden past may end up being more than they bargained for.

Secrets, Lies, and Key Lime Pie is a 60,000-word gay romance with opposites attract, age gap, and a touch of cozy mystery themes. It is the second book in the Willow Springs series. All books can be read as standalone stories, but characters from each book will reappear across the series. A happily ever after ending is guaranteed.

About the Authors

A.D. Ellis

Escape into addictive, sexy, emotional M/M romance.
A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing teens, and wondering how she and her husband of over two decades haven't driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, hot tea, sweet wine with friends, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/they pronouns and identifies as "not straight" while still exploring labels. Queer, yes. Bisexual or pansexual, probably. Gray ace or demisexual, likely. Until something feels just right, they'll skip the exact labels.
