Michael Duckett is fed up with his life. His job is a drag and his roommate and best friend of fifteen years, Stephanie Dyer, is only making him more anxious with her lazy irresponsibility. Things continue to escalate when they face the threat of imminent eviction from their palatial 5th floor walk-up and find that someone has been plastering ads all over the city for their Detective Agency.

The only problem is: He and Stephanie don’t have one of those.

Despite their baffling levels of incompetence, Stephanie eagerly pursues this crazy scheme and drags Michael, kicking and screaming, into the fray only to find that they are way out of their depth. They stumble upon a web of missing people that are curiously linked to a sexually audacious theoretical physicist and his experiments with the fabric of space-time. And unless Michael and Stephanie can put their personal issues aside and fix the multi-verse, the concept of existence itself may, ironically, no longer exist.  (Amazon)

Jane’s boyfriend is missing, and she thinks she may find him at North Carolina’s historic Biltmore Estate. Officially, she’s there to learn about luxury hotel management, but she’s also prowling around the breathtaking buildings and grounds looking for secret passageways and clues. One of the staff gardeners promises to be helpful . . . that is, until his body turns up in the reading room of his cottage, a book on his lap.

When she finally locates the kidnapped Edwin, his captor insists that she lead him back to Storyton Hall, convinced that it houses Ernest Hemingway’s lost suitcase, stolen from a Paris train station in 1922. But before they can turn up the treasure, the bell may toll for another victim . . .

For Kempston Hardwick, dead PAs are business as usual. Unfortunately. At least there are lots of excuses to visit the pub.

But why had she made so many enemies? Why are the police so keen to fit up an innocent man? And where did Doug’s pickled onions go?  (Amazon)

Mona Moon is not your typical young lady. She is a cartographer by trade, explorer by nature, and adventurer by heart. But there’s a problem.
Miss Mona is broke. It’s during the Depression, and National Geographic has just turned down her application to join an expedition to the Amazon.
What’s she to do? Perhaps get a job as a department store salesgirl. Anything to tide her over until a next assignment.
There’s a knock on the door. Who could this be in the middle of the night? Holding a revolver, Mona reluctantly opens her door to a man wearing a Homburg hat and holding a briefcase.
“I bring glad tidings. Your Uncle Manfred Moon has died and left you as his heir to the Moon fortune. You are now one of the richest women in the country!” he says.
Mona’s response is to point her revolver in his face. If the stranger is telling the truth, she will apologize. If he is a fraud, she will shoot him.
That’s how Mona does things in 1933.  (Amazon)

Apprehensive about concealing a felony, Savannah and the Moonlight Magnolia Detective Agency launch a discreet investigation into Brianne’s rare condition and the deadly concoction linking the two bodies. As chilling evidence points to an undeniable case of double murder, the agency races to slim down the suspect list and blow the lid off a shifty criminal’s poisonous agenda.

Gone With The Sin (Book 8) (A Harley and Davidson Mystery) by [Hart, Liliana, Silverii, Scott]Gone With The Sin

(Suitable for all ages)

Let sleeping dogs lie. If only that were the case throughout Bell County, Texas, things would’ve returned to the serenity that once defined it. A quiet, and peaceful place was what Hank Davidson wanted as his retirement home. After a high-risk, violent career as an FBI-trained serial killer detective, crime was the last thing Hank wanted. He also had no intention to fall in love, but crime also played a part in that, or at least solving crime did.

The Lone Star Rattlers outlaw motorcycle club have been around for hundreds of years. They began as a militia to protect the sovereignty of the Independent Republic of Texas. Over the generations, they devolved into a vicious group of treasure-seeking bandits determined to recover billions in secreted bullion and confederate treasures once horded in hopes of financing another war to reclaim it’s freedom from the United States of America.

Bell County’s numerous historic cemeteries were once revered for honoring the heroic sacrifices of it’s citizens and soldiers. The recent rash of grave robbing has led Agatha Harley to suspect something more sinister is afoot. She must convince a very skeptical Sheriff Reggie Coil that it’s more than high school vandals.

Enlisting the help of her partner in crime-solving and love, Hank Davidson, would give her the leverage to dig deeper into the series of casket breeches, and help convince Coil that his precious Bell County was once again under attack by his age-old enemies, the Rattlers.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

The dynamic husband and wife writing duo of Liliana Hart and Scott Silverii combine their love of adventure and storytelling into the Harley and Davidson Mystery Series. While they’ve discussed a team writing effort for years, when it came time to actually develop their characters, both admit to being stumped.

Why not write us they laughed.

Liliana, a 29-time NY Times and USA Today bestseller and author of over 59 titles, enjoys this labor of love with her husband. Scott, a former Chief of Police and law enforcement professional has over 25 years of banging down doors and busting bad guys. An author of 10 titles, he says this by far is his favorite mission.

Together, they have created a lovable tandem of adventure seeking, mystery-solving heroes that you’ll get to know and love. You might even catch a glimpse of Liliana and Scott in each story. Well, probably much more than a glimpse.

Over the last couple of months they’ve found themselves in the throws of outlaw bikers, serial killers, stalkers, hidden gold and a few other mysteries they’re still trying to figure out.

A Fourth of July camping trip to Palo Duro Canyon State Park just outside of Amarillo, Texas sounds like the perfect getaway. Nothing but clean air, hiking trails, canyon walls and Agatha’s best friend, Heather Cartwright arrested for murder.

In a world a million miles apart from the serenity of nature, there’s another kind of wildlife that isn’t so innocent. A Dallas oil tycoon who makes JR Ewing look like a boy scout, seems to still burn a flame for his fifth ex-wife. Unfortunately, his Independence Day mega-celebration ends with fireworks and his murder.
Heather goes from belle of the ball to cell block inmate before the last sparkler burns.

Agatha and Hank are on the case, but aren’t out of the woods yet. Cynical cops and high society don’t appreciate them snooping around. They’ll have to rely on their survival skills to pull justice out of this wilderness. Hank spent his entire career as a cop, but he’s not getting any help from the shady detectives who’ve hung their hats on Heather’s arrest.

Once again, he and Agatha rely on their friends in Rusty Gun and the fabled, Texas Rangers. But, will they be enough to prove Heather’s innocence, assuming she is innocent. After all, one thing Heather has never been accused of, and that’s being innocent.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS

The dynamic husband and wife writing duo of Liliana Hart and Scott Silverii combine their love of adventure and storytelling into the Harley and Davidson Mystery Series. While they’ve discussed a team writing effort for years, when it came time to actually develop their characters, both admit to being stumped.

Why not write us they laughed.

Liliana, a 29-time NY Times and USA Today bestseller and author of over 59 titles, enjoys this labor of love with her husband. Scott, a former Chief of Police and law enforcement professional has over 25 years of banging down doors and busting bad guys. An author of 10 titles, he says this by far is his favorite mission.

Together, they have created a lovable tandem of adventure seeking, mystery-solving heroes that you’ll get to know and love. You might even catch a glimpse of Liliana and Scott in each story. Well, probably much more than a glimpse.

Tequila Mockingbird (Book 7) (A Harley and Davidson Mystery) by [Hart, Liliana, Silverii, Scott]Tequila Mockingbird
(Suitable for all ages)

Old habits die hard. In the case of drug running, border-crossing, crime cartels, so do oaths for revenge. Agatha Harley and Hank Davidson were looking forward to spending time focusing on their budding romance. Instead, a series of cryptic messages from their friend, Sheriff Reggie Coil, launches them toward the southern Texas city of Laredo at the Mexican border.

Sheriff Coil, who once worked as an undercover drug task force special agent in Austin, owed his life to fellow law enforcement officer, Texas Ranger Sergeant Jason Whitehorse. The heroic American-Indian officer fought off an outlaw motorcycle club’s ambush against Coil to escape with non-life threatening injuries.

Many years had passed, and while each man’s careers had taken different paths, their bond remained strong. Agatha and Hank soon discover that Coil needed their help because he’d rushed to Whitehorse’s rescue. Forces beyond Whitehorse’s control forced him back into his deep undercover role as a drug and gun runner. It was a covert operation that depended on him working with his old partner, Reggie Coil.

Agatha and Hank are out gunned, out equipped and definitely out of their element, but loyalty and friendship means never having to ask for help a second time. It’s off to the border they go. But, can enthusiasm and a willingness to help their friends overcome the ruthless bandits they’ll face?

Here’s a hint; Agatha has a bit of a tenacious streak of determined ruthlessness when it comes to fighting for the underdog. After all, it’s one of the qualities Hank loves most about her.

But when a body falls from a laundry chute and lands at Laura’s feet, replacing flowered wallpaper becomes the least of her duties.

To clear her young assistant of the murder and save her fledgling business, Laura’s determined to find the killer. Turns out it’s not as easy as renovating a manor home, especially with two handsome men complicating her mission: the police detective assigned to the case and the real estate agent trying to save the manse from foreclosure.

Worse still, the meddling of a horoscope-guided friend, a determined grandmother, and the local funeral director could get them all killed before Laura props the first pillow.

If Rylie had a checklist for her life it would look like this:

  • Full-time job . . . check.
  • Serious boyfriend . . . check.
  • No dead bodies in months . . . check.

On paper it looked good. Fantastic even.

But in reality, she still lives in her parents’ basement, doesn’t feel like part of the ranger team, and knows a body is bound to show up at any moment.

When she discovers a teenage boy with severe hypothermia, Rylie has to work with one of her biggest rivals to figure out what happened.

High school never seemed so brutal.

In a world of cliques and parties, championship football games and college applications, Rylie is sure she’ll be able to solve the mystery.

Until she finds another boy . . .

Will Rylie be able to piece together the hormone-fueled puzzle before it’s too late? Will the boys survive? And will she ever get out of her parents’ basement?

Blood Moon: A Riley Hunter Novel (The Riley Hunter Series Book 2) by [Lynn, Amanda]Werewolf attacks. Decapitated Vampires.

Why did Riley think things were going to be easier as a vampire?

It’s been two months since Riley was turned. She’s adjusting to her new fanged life and things are finally getting back to normal.

All that changes with one werewolf attack.

A seemingly random werewolf attack hits too close to home and exposes a family secret that threatens everything she thought she knew about her life. After a second one occurs, Riley starts to question if these attacks really are random, or if those close to her are being targeted.

When vampires start turning up dead also, Riley and Lucian are stretched thin trying to solve the murders and hunt down the rogue werewolf. Soon, Lucian has no choice but to call in the BloodGuard-the elite vampire soldiers of the Council-for help.

All the clues are beginning to point to the one-person Riley had hoped to never see again-Malus. And after some disturbing news from Lucian’s Sire, it appears the Council could be protecting him.

If that’s true, what’s going to happen when the BloodGuard gets there?  (Amazon)

Nothing heats up Old Town quite like the annual Pie Festival, and this year is no exception, especially since Sophie’s professional rival, Natasha Smith, is barred from participating. Sophie, meanwhile, has been asked to oversee the pie eating contest. But the drama really rolls out when celebrity judge, Patsy Lee Presley, host of television’s most popular cooking show, bites the crust during the competition, and Sophie’s friends are suspected of the crime.

As the folks of Old Town dish, the tough truth about Patsy’s meteoric rise to domestic stardom begins to leak. It turns out that Patsy’s sweet exterior hid a secret sour side, which alienated many of her closest allies, including a jilted ex-husband, a bitter ex-mentor, and a jaded ex-best friend. With the festival falling apart, and her friends in danger of being boxed up for murder, Sophie must cobble together the clues and stop a flakey fiend from serving up any more deadly desserts.

Includes delicious recipes and entertaining tips!  (Amazon)

I know who you really are.

Pru has a secret, which she has no plans to reveal – ever. But after a woman is murdered and all clues point to her, she has no choice but to disclose her true identity. When her revelations help thwart the killer’s plan to frame Pru for the murder, the killer begins stalking her. With each note he sends, he gets closer. The police are stumped. Pru wants to run away. She really, really wants to run, but Ajax has found the woman of his dreams and he’s not letting her go anywhere. He can be patient. In the meantime, he’ll protect her with his life. Pru isn’t feeling very patient, and her friends, Mel and Terri, are definitely not willing to wait until the police uncover who the stalker is. The three friends take matters into their own hands and jump headfirst into the investigation.

Will Pru and her friends uncover her stalker before he turns his violence on Pru?

I grew up reading everything I could get my grubby hands on, from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew, to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although on the odd occasion I did manage to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic before returning to the law. But practicing law really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out running a B&B wasn’t my thing either. I polished off that manuscript languishing in the attic before following the husband to Istanbul where I decided to give the whole writer-thing a go. But ten years was too many to stay away from my adopted home. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where, in between tennis matches and failing to save the world, I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.

Hide Not Seek is my fifteenth novel.

When did you know that you wanted to be an author?  What things, if any, influenced that decision?

I’ve also enjoyed writing, but it wasn’t until I was completely and totally fed up with my legal career that I thought I’d give writing a serious go. When Amazon came out with direct publishing, the time had come for me to quit my day job and try this author thing out.

 

With so many cozies being written today, what makes your books stand out from the crowd?

In contrast to many mystery novels, my cozies are dialogue driven. I try to make the dialogue snappy and witty to keep the reader interested.

Image result for dialogue clipart

 

Do you work from an outline or plot or do you just see where the characters take you?

I work from an outline. It’s not a super detailed outline but an outline is necessary for me to be able to write when life tries to get into the way of my writing. And life is always trying to get in the way.

 

Do you read your reviews?  Do you respond to them, good or bad?  Do you do anything special to get those reviews?

Yes, I read them. I just can’t seem to help myself! I don’t respond to them, unless they have absolutely nothing to do with my book. I had one reviewer complain about Amazon’s rating system in her review. When I complained to Amazon, they took the review down pretty quick.

 

What advice would you give to your younger self?

Just do it. Seriously, no one’s looking at you. Go to the movie you want to go to. Go to a museum if you want. Enjoy yourself. Don’t be so afraid all the dang time.

Image result for just do it clipart

 

 

Do you think that the cover plays an important part in someone buying your book(s)?   Who designs your book covers?

Unfortunately, covers play a huge part in the purchase process. I recently had several of my book covers redesigned because of this issue. My husband designs my book covers.

 

Please give us an insight into your main characters.  What do you think makes them special?

My characters are real women with real problems. Whether it’s simply being shy or having attention deficit disorder, they are all flawed and imperfectly perfect.  

 

Image result for imperfectly perfect clipart

 

 

What have you learned about yourselves since becoming an author?

I’m perfectly fine not having colleagues. When I’ve worked at home before, I missed my colleagues. Now, I’m perfectly content to spend the day in my home office hiding working away.

 

Do you write full-time or part-time?

I write full-time. Well, assuming life doesn’t get in the way, that is.

Image result for fulltime clipart

 

 

What do your plans for future projects include?

Next up is a romantic comedy. After that, I’ll start another mystery series. This time with a female PI who has a potty mouth. Not a cozy mystery in other words.

 

What do you think the hardest part of writing is?  What is the easiest?

The hardest part is starting a new novel. I’m always petrified I’m not going to finish another project. The easiest part is writing dialogue. I enjoy trying to come up with witty things for my characters to say to embarrass themselves.

What type of books do you like to read?  Who are some of your favorite authors?

I read everything from non-fiction history to literature to romance. Suzanne Wright – I have a bit of an obsession with her paranormal romances. On the literature side of things, I love John Steinbeck. The Grapes of Wrath is one my all-time favorite books.

 

What is the one thing you would like your readers to know about you?

I think readers may be interested to know that I actually chose to self-publish. Not only do I want to be in charge of every step of the process, but I love the challenges involved with self-publishing. They keep me invigorated!

Review of The Mint Julep Murders

The Mint Julep Murders
Southern Ghost Hunter Mystery, Book #8
Angie Fox
5 Stars

 

SThe Mint Julep Murders (Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Book 8) by [Fox, Angie]ynopsis:

For Southern girl Verity Long, friendship means sitting down to stories and sweet tea on the front porch. For her gangster ghost housemate, it means dragging Verity out to a remote haunted asylum during a raging thunderstorm to do a favor for a long-dead mob boss.

But Verity is always ready to help out a friend, even one as eternally eccentric as Frankie. And in the case of Mint Julep Manor, the stakes are too high to refuse. The criminally insane mob boss holds a secret to Frankie’s past, one that might set Frankie free. Do the favor—survive the favor—and they might change Frankie’s afterlife for good. Fail, and they might never leave the asylum. (Goodreads)

The characters are well developed and well rounded. Verity is such a caring loving person, and she wants to help everyone, living or dead. Everyone should be as kind as her. Frankie likes to appear tough and gruff, but deep down he has feelings, although he would never admit it. Any time I get to spend with Verity and Frankie is time well spent. I love the bickering and banter between the two of them, it provides a lot of humor to the book. Verity would miss Frankie if he ever left.

The writing style flows smoothly and defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and creating the setting. Being in a remote haunted asylum was very scary and I could picture the torture devices and the eerie hallways in my mind. It was a scary place to be!!

There was plenty of action taking place within the pages of this book. The mystery was well plotted and although most of the action took place within the asylum, I think that added to the suspense. There were plenty of twists and turns and red herrings thrown in and it was not easily solved. And the ending left me wanting to read the next book immediately.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. And if you enjoy ghostly cozies, this book and series is for you.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.

Tigers Love Bubble Baths & Obsession Perfume (who knew!) by [Savarese, Mary K.]Angie Pantera thought she had the perfect life: a loving, devoted husband of twenty-five years, two wonderful, grown children, and an impending wedding anniversary celebration with friends and family. But the celebration is ruined by a cheating husband, and Angie’s life devolves into a living nightmare—until serendipity brings her to Birdsong, Maine, as recreation director at the Home of the Little Flower.

A church-run nursing home that is slowly wasting away with its nonagenarian inhabitants, the Home could use a miracle . . . or maybe a facsimile of one. A bit of creative advertising prompts Angie to buy a bouquet of “magical” dandelions, and in a flash of inspiration, she knows exactly how to bring light to these dark days. After all, no one is ever too old for wishes.

But then people start dying, and the only thing they have in common is Angie. Harangued by a distrustful elder and under suspicion by the police, Angie must fight to clear her good name as she seeks out the truth: Is this a miracle or murder?  (Amazon)

As if that weren’t enough to spoil her appetite, Jenna discovers that all the evidence points to her friend Pepper as being the guilty party.

Sifting through the clues, Jenna unearths any number of possible culprits, but she’ll have to cook up a new way to catch the killer before Pepper’s goose is cooked . . .

Toxic Apple Turnovers (MURDER IN THE MIX Book 13) by [Moore, Addison]A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors.
And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.

*A laugh out loud standalone cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* All books in the series can be read individually but are best enjoyed in order.

My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead pets. On occasion I see a once-upon a human, too, but mostly it’s just cute little furry beasts who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owners impending doom. 

Fall is in the air, the weather is crisp, the leaves are golden and the atmosphere is ripe for murder. It’s the first catering event of the season and I’m blindsided by what transpires at the outlandish party. Not only that, but I stumble upon the one person I would never want to see facedown in a flower bed. And to top it all off, something wicked has rolled into Honey Hollow and every dead spirit I have ever encountered is back to help me fight it.

Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.

Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder.  (Amazon)

The Wyvern's Defender Dire Wolf: A Cozy Paranormal Romantic Mystery (Dial-A-Defender Book 1) by [Summerfield, Alice]

A single word scribbled on a scrap of paper by an unsteady hand chilled the blood in her veins. It read simply: Run!

Called ‘barely a dragon’ all her life, Helena Tarleton hadn’t thought herself valuable enough for anyone to try to Sever her from her soul mate, whoever and wherever he was. She couldn’t even shift! Bookish and naive, Helena is ill-suited for life on the run, but run she does. Helena can’t outrun, outsmart, or outfight her dragon relatives, but she’s willing to die trying.

After a rough childhood, dire wolf shifter and military veteran Rudolf Shaw has found family – and a substitute pack – in working for supernatural protection agency, Dial-A-Defender. Dolf doesn’t want – or need – anything more, until he responds to a break in and finds Helena, a woman in obvious need of a place to lie low. Taking the gentle woman in and giving her his protection, despite her secrets (and the insistent howl of his better sense) is a no-brainer.

But when a pack of hellhounds comes sniffing around, his neighbor is murdered, and the biggest dragon that Dolf has ever seen tries to fry him, Dolf begins to suspect that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. A dire wolf has no hope of defeating an entire pack of hellhounds, much less an old dragon, but for Helena’s sake, Dolf has to try. Because the thing is, she just might be his soul’s mate.

The Wyvern’s Defender Dire Wolf is a steamy, full length novel chock-full of humor, cozy mystery, action, and heartwarming romance. If you love reading about mysterious murders, bookish but brave heroines, or the thoroughly confounded heroes that fall in love with them almost entirely against their will, don’t miss this exciting read!

Cat Chase the Moon: A Joe Grey Mystery (Joe Grey Mystery Series Book 21) by [Murphy, Shirley Rousseau]Feline P. I. Joe Grey and his friends pounce on three investigations that may connect to one larger mystery—including one case that is very personal—in this hair-raising installment in Shirley Rousseau Murphy’s beloved, award-winning series.

Joe Grey and his partner, Dulcie, are frantic when Courtney, their pretty teen-kitten goes missing. Aided by their two- and four-legged friends, they hit the streets of Molina Point in search of their calico girl. Has Joe Grey and Dulcie’s only daughter been lured away by someone and stolen? Is she lying somewhere hurt, or worse?

Courtney has no idea that everyone is desperately looking for her. Locked in an upstairs apartment above the local antiques shop, she’s enjoying her first solo adventure. When she first met Ulrich Seaver, the shop’s owner, Courtney was frightened. But the human has coddled and pampered her, winning her trust. Sheltered by her parents, her brothers, and her kind human companions, the innocent Courtney is unaware of how deceptive strangers can be. She doesn’t know that Ulrich is hiding a dangerous secret that could threaten her and everyone in this charming California coastal village.

With his focus on finding Courtney, Joe Grey has neglected his detective work with the Molina Point Police Department. Before his daughter disappeared, Joe found a viciously beaten woman lying near the beach. Now the police investigation has stalled, and the clever feline worries his human colleagues may have missed a vital clue. Joe is also concerned about a family of newcomers whose domestic battles are disturbing the town’s tranquility. Loud and abrasive, the Luthers’ angry arguing, shouting, and swearing in the early hours of the night have neighbors on edge and the cops on alert. One of the couple’s late-night shouting matches masked the sounds of a burglary, and now a criminal is on the loose.

Though the crimes are as crisscrossed as the strands of a ball of yarn, Joe Grey’s cat senses tell him they may somehow be linked. It’s up to the fleet-footed feline and his crime-solving coterie to untangle the mysteries before it’s too late.  (Amazon)

A Typo, a Werewolf, and two Dopey Dachshunds: a Darkly Comic Mystery Thriller: Blue Moon Investigations Book 0: An Origin Story by [higgs, steve]Tempest Michaels is about to have a bad week.

When a newspaper ad typo sends all manner of daft paranormal enquiries his way, P.I. Tempest Michaels has no sense of the trouble and danger heading his way.

In no time at all, he has multiple cases to investigate, but it’s all ridiculous nonsense like minor celebrity Richard Claythorn, who believes he is being stalked by a werewolf and a shopkeeper in a nearby village with an invisible thief.

Solving these cases might be fun if his demanding mother (Why are there no grandchildren, Tempest?) didn’t insist on going with him, but the simple case of celebrity stalking might not be all it seems when he catches a man lurking behind the client’s property just in time to see him step into the moonlight and begin to transform.

All he wanted was a nice easy job where he got to be his own boss and could take his trusty Dachshunds to work. How much trouble can a typo cause?

The paranormal? It’s all nonsense, but proving it might get him killed.  (Amazon)
