In Opal's Disappearance, an old college friend begs Sheryl to help find her missing cousin, Opal, who may have been kidnapped by a mysterious mountain man. When all leads are exhausted, Sheryl concocts a dangerous plan—she becomes bait for the kidnapper and alleged murderer.
In Dragon's Pearl, blood on the moon signifies death for some unlucky victim. A haunted music box and a ghost keep Sheryl Holmes and her cohorts on their toes.
Pearls fell like raindrops from the sky while the dragons fought. Silvery fingers of mist cast eerie shadows upon the ocean waves as the struggle raged overhead. Three beings watched the battle, until they noticed blood on the full moon. Someone would die.
Her fingers kept a firm grasp on the pistol. No one appeared. One last look around her shop, Sheryl locked up and walked toward her car.
It was late at night and bright outside until clouds covered the full moon. Lightning flashed. Sheryl paused to gaze up at the sky. Her breath caught. A fire breathing dragon, clutching a pearl in its claws, floated overhead. “It can't be.” She blinked and relaxed when she realized it was just a dark cloud mass resembling a dragon and the pearl was the moon peeking through what looked like its claws. The heat lightning was the fire.
With a nervous giggle, Sheryl got into her car. Earlier she's seen blood on the moon and knowing it meant someone would die and spotting what she thought was an intruder in her shop―must have kick started her imagination.
