"Baeli again gives her readers characters to love and hate, witty repartee, page-turning action and shrewd plotting, making the sixth in the AKA series as readable as the previous five."Change can be exciting in many ways, even when it is thrust upon you. Fresh from vacation, the AKA team gets back to work. Goths and goons, mortal danger and dirty cops, unexpected road trips-all conspiring against Phoebe, Jobeth, Ginger and Izzy. While Phoebe struggles with inner turmoil, Ginger and Chloe lament the replacement of an ailing Captain Campbell and Jobeth takes on a new case. As Jobeth and Izzy begin their investigation, they soon find a simple missing person case mushrooming into something far more sinister. With Captain Donnie Crane at the helm, the Denver Police Department is changing, threatening not only the careers of Ginger and Chloe, but their very lives. Will their brothers in blue watch their backs or turn against them? How can the two detectives continue to do their jobs? Great loss and seemingly random events push them all to a solution that will mean stark changes. There may be nowhere to run that is far enough away from those who want them-and all their closest allies-dead. Ginger Grant will do whatever she has to do, to keep her loved ones safe.

This group of ladies keeps me amused and interested. I enjoy how their characters are interwoven to make a strong group of women. A tribe, a clan, a family...""Never disappointed. awesome book and I hope to see a lot more books in AKA investigations because I have enjoyed reading them all!""another awesome book" "A good 6th book in a wonderful series. I truly enjoyed Ms. Baeli's AKA Investigation series, I couldn't put them down and still wanted more after this 6th book. The series goes from graphic violence against women to it Universal Justice. The characters are well-rounded and the story-lines are engaging. I found myself laughing out loud to weeping quietly. These were a great find.""The AKA crew is back after a long hiatus and it's good to hear from some favorite characters. Phoebe and Jobeth along with Izzy and Ginger are stronger than ever and it's a good thing because change is unexpectedly thrust upon them in good ways and not so good ways. In fact, that David Bowie song, cha-cha-cha-changes seems to be the dominant theme of this part of their journey. We meet some new characters that will change them all forever and some old friends join along for this part in the story. The challenges these strong women face force them to circle the wagons and band together for safety in numbers. The ending hinted at more to come which is fine by me. How could you not rally around these excellent women."Kelli Jae Baeli has taken us back to our old friends, Jobeth, Phoebe, Ginger and Izzy and their friends. Kelli's still got her groove on, and this novel in the AKA series has all the elements we have come to expect from a KJB story. Great story line, characters that reach out and grab your heart, bad guys with depth, new characters that quickly become more than stage props. This story line really branched out into new territory. Dramatic and playful at the same time, Kelli took her characters to another level, giving them challenges that changes their lives. I've been living in anticipation for Blue, Dark & Bright, and it did not disappoint. Kudos, Kelli, to another wonderful and wacky story."

About the Author

Bestselling author of the Rain Falls series, AKA Investigations series, & Pitfall, Kelli Jae Baeli began writing as a child, exploring poetry & journaling, eventually moving on to short stories. After a romantic fling in the military with another female soldier, she penned a novel based on the experience, which became her first novel, As You Were. This was followed quickly by Armchair Detective, a book she wrote because she couldn't find other lesbian fiction she liked at the time, and so wanted to write something she would want to read. She's been doing that ever since.

Believing in mastering every aspect of the business, she is also an editor, webmaster and blogger, all after 8 years of University, to include pursuing a B.A. in Professional Writing & Editing. Formerly a managing editor for 2 small presses, Baeli has also done book cover design, typography, and formatting since 1998. She also founded Kindred Ink Writers Initiative, Kind Red Ink Editing, & currently publishes under the imprints Indie Literati Press, & Lesbian Literati Press.

Living a life around words, books, art and music not only fulfills her, but defines her. An independent author and publisher, she has produced 43 books, in a variety of genres. Constantly mining the world around her for literary tidbits, Baeli is always to be found with iPhone in hand, taking pictures or thumbing in notes, a self-confessed story magpie who sees everywhere the fodder for her work. She is a talented singer-songwriter with over 200 songs to her credit, and loves pottery and clay sculpture, as well.

A canny mix of business woman and artist, Kelli Jae Baeli is delighted to spend each and every day relentlessly feeding her muse.

After 3 unfortunate years in New Zealand, Baeli now makes her home in the quaint village of Eureka Springs, where she is blessed to have a beautiful home in lovely surroundings, a loving partner, a community of friends, and the life she always dreamed of.
