The San Francisco Mystery Series - Over 700 Ratings on Goodreads

Venice is a fabulous crime/mystery and suspense writer. She knows and understands the legal system and that is conveyed in her storytelling. The action and drama feel very authentic. The interplay between the police and the DA’s office is written with a keen eye, keeping it quite realistic. Additionally, the story is nicely paced; readers are engaged from the first page and yearn for more. Even though Bourbon Chase is titled a mystery, it contains a lovely undercurrent of romance. The romance is beautifully threaded throughout the story and contributes wonderfully to the overall story arc.   5 Stars The Lesbian Book Blog

About Alexi Venice

author alexi venice at courthouse


  • Amazon bestselling author Alexi Venice writes legal thrillers and crime drama with a side of romance. Her popular SAN FRANCISCO MYSTERY SERIES is a crime drama that tests the bonds of love and loyalty among Dr. Jen Dawson, Detective Tommy Vietti and District Attorney Amanda Hawthorne.

  • 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. Venice’s heart, imagination and life experience inform her romantic drama.

  • Venice says: "One of my favorite characters to write about is DA Amanda Hawthorne. 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 stress during high-profile investigations. She is capable of deep self-reflection, though, which is why I respect and adore her."
