No Time to Breathe

No Time to BreatheJournalist Lisa Jamison wants to blow off some steam after an argument with her boyfriend, so she heads to her friend Ricky’s kickboxing studio for an early morning workout.

She expects to find Ricky alone, setting up for his first class of the day, but someone was there before Lisa, uninvited. Ricky is dead, shot only moments before she arrived, and now Lisa is a suspect in his murder. Lisa wants two things: to clear her name and seek justice for Ricky. But the deeper she digs, the more the danger mounts. Can she find Ricky’s killer before the killer eliminates the last obstacle, silencing Lisa for good?

“With grit and heart, investigative journalist Lisa Jamison takes on the worst crime has to offer to clear her name and seek justice for a friend in this tense and twisty new mystery from Lori Duffy Foster. No Time to Breathe has it all: taut suspense, complex characters, clean romance, and a surprising plot that will keep you turning the pages well past your bedtime. ” – Kelly Oliver, bestselling author of The Jessica James Mysteries

No Time to Breathe is a compelling mystery that builds to a heart pounding finish. The story begins when journalist Lisa Jamison is thrust into a murder investigation, and it quickly escalates as the personal and the political converge with deadly consequences. This author knows how to deliver on suspense, as the narration takes one hairpin curve after another in a tale of greed, corruption, and deception. Lisa’s relentless pursuit of the truth extends to every aspect of her life. It’s what drives her, what haunts her, and ultimately, what enables her to move beyond her troubled past and toward a more confident future. No Time to Breathe is a well-plotted suspense novel that delivers on multiple levels.” – Lori Robbins, author of the On Pointe Mystery Series

Author Pet Corner!


In the fall of 2020, we promised our twins we would adopt another dog if school went virtual again. It did. So, along came Lola, our COVID dog. Lola was also 18 months old when she became part of our family. We think she is an American fox hound/coon dog mix, but who knows? She runs like a deer and is incredibly loyal and protective. We adore her.

Marco is our teddy bear. He came to us from a rescue nearly nine years ago at 18 months old. The vet’s best guess is that he is part border collie and part black lab. He’s the gentlest creature on the planet.

Ash. Good ole’  Ash. I have always loved other people’s cats, but I never wanted one of my own. I was pretty adamant about it. Then this gray ball of soft fur started following my mother-in-law’s cat into her house. The kids ganged up on me. My husband ganged up on me. My mother-in-law ganged up on me.

Now, Ash owns me, as I knew she would. One of her favorite spots is on my desk while I am working or writing. She was born feral. She lived in the wild for her first six months. But, as you can see, she has acclimated well to life as an indoor cat.
