Book 1
If Wishes Were Horses...
" Neil Marshall is a graduate student in the University of Houston’s creative writing program and a promising young poet. However, facing a financially and emotionally draining divorce has him worried about more than paying tuition. So to make ends meet, Neil moonlights as a chef for a high society caterer.  Just when Neil’s life seems bleakest, his oldest friend, racehorse breeder Jason Keys, is murdered. And Neil becomes the prime suspect.  To avenge his friend, clear his name, and rescue a missing championship thoroughbred, Neil infiltrates the dark underworld of horse theft and illegal breeding. Neil’s friends—his attractive writing teacher, his cooking colleagues, and a freckle-faced teenage horsewoman—offer their support. But their cheers quickly turn to gasps when Neil becomes the hunted."

Book 2
A Whisper Of Rage
"Graduate student and part-time chef Neil Marshall only wants to go for an early morning run.  Instead he witnesses the near-fatal shooting of legendary Houston private eye C.J. McDaniels, and he fears the gunmen can identify them. Before long, Neil finds himself in the eye of a hurricane, his quiet academic life ripped apart as he rides a swath of violence that cuts across a mansion in River Oaks to an eerily silent suburban home, from a secret hospital room to the bed of a fascinating woman.  In Houston's sultry summer heat a deep-rooted rage is building from a whisper to a roar."

Tim Hemlin is a graduate of the University of New Hampshire, having studied with poets Charles Simic and Mekeel McBride.  He has published in poetry journals, anthologies, and magazines--most notably in Ellery Queen.  Currently he has six published novels, two short stories and is included in an anthology.

By day he is an educator; however after teaching ELA for 22 years he decided to put his master's degree to work and is now a high school counselor.  In addition, he is an avid marathoner, fly-fisherman, and outdoorsman.  He lives just outside Houston, Texas with his wife Valerie, two dogs and a cantankerous cat.

If Wishes were Horses - I was a bit hesitant about this book because I love a good murder mystery but I do not like blood and gore. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the book was enjoyable, fast paced, kept my heart racing at points of trouble, and did not gross me out with gory details! The way in which the Main Character becomes involved in the investigation was intriguing and easy to follow, not to mention easy to understand and believe. I was captivated and it was actually really fun to read. There is some swearing, but nothing that would stop me from reading it again or to off put from the story. If you love mysteries, you will absolutely love this book.

A Whisper of Rage - This book was easy to read as a stand alone, but also flows nicely right off the first book and into this second book. I found I liked this book even more than the first book. And since I am giving the first one a 5 star rating, that should say a lot. The way our Main Character becomes involved in this was very different than the first one. I felt the story was smoother, even easier to follow along, and so fast paced that I didn't realize how much time had gone by while reading it until it was over. But it was satisfying to read, and I am dying for the next book. There is more swearing that I noticed in this book - but again it is not out of place in the world created as the Private Investigator, the police, and our main character all get involved in this fabulous story. Definitely would recommend it to murder mystery lovers.
