Amazon bestselling author Alexi Venice writes legal thrillers and crime drama with a side of romance. Her popular SAN FRANCISCO MYSTERY SERIES is a legal drama that tests the bonds of love and loyalty among Dr. Jen Dawson, Detective Tommy Vietti and District Attorney Amanda Hawthorne.
Venice says: “One of my favorite characters to write about is DA Amanda Hawthorne. A native of San Francisco, she’s heroic and genuinely in love with Dr. Jen, but Amanda struggles with addiction issues, cannot stop herself from personally fighting the bad guys, and engages in self-destructive behavior to blow off steam during high-profile investigations. She is capable of deep self-reflection, however, resulting in efforts to improve, which is why I respect and adore her.”
Venice’s 31-year legal career informs her medical and crime fiction. She is legal counsel under a different name at an international health care system, specializing in preparing nurses and physicians to testify in court in both civil and criminal trials. Venice’s heart, imagination and life experience inform her romantic drama.
Venice’s 2019 release of CONSCIOUS BIAS, A MONICA SPADE NOVEL, has been acclaimed by readers and reviewers.
“An impeccably well-written legal drama with a slow burn romance front and center. Look for a surprise twist at the end of this book, too!” Goodreads 5 stars – Gayle
“I loved the book, characters, and plot. I didn’t want to put the book down. I especially liked the way the relationship grew between Monica and Shelby.” Goodreads 5 stars – S
“What a great read! It had many stories going on simultaneously. There is a murder, a trial, bigotry, coming out, hot romance, friendship, etc. And there is humor to break things up. I was thoroughly captivated and entertained. This is the first book I have read by Alexi Venice and if this story is an example of her writing, I will soon start her San Francisco mystery series.” Goodreads 5 stars – Cheryl
“Slow-burn F/F romance with some courtroom drama thrown in. Venice did a great job of capturing being a lesbian or gay in the Mid-West, having grown up there myself.” Goodreads – Linds
“This was a fast moving book who’s characters had a lot of personality and steamy moments. This book looks at hate crimes for gender, sexual orientation and color. It was a true joy to read.” Goodreads – Heather
When she isn’t working and writing, Venice can be found on the lake boating and swimming with her dogs. Venice is married and lives in Wisconsin.
