I dove right into drugs, poisons, toxins, medications and got so caught up… Continue reading

[subscribe2]Uneasy Spirits, by M. Louisa Locke Kindle $.99 Link: http://tinyurl.com/3lcb54n

This is Ms. Locke’s delightful sequel to Maids of Misfortune, and the second in the Annie Fuller historical mystery series.  Set in the late 1800’s in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco, California, I felt like I was there, walking these streets as they were a hundred years ago.

By day, Annie Fuller makes her living as the proprietor of a respectable and well established boarding house, but at night, she becomes Madame Sybil, fortune teller. Annie may have been brought up studying finance at her father’s knee,… Continue reading

KittyGlam did this unsolicited review for A Dead Read Cadillac.

glamkittydiana@gmail.com A Dead Read Cadillac. http://theliteratekitty.blogspot.com/2012/01/lipstick-red-dead-caddy-in-lake.html

Wise-cracking detectives–from the rank amateurs who somehow stumble into the practice of investigating, to the licensed professionals with their fancy gizmos and snazzy Yellow Pages listings–are a dime a dozen in mystery novels… but a wise-cracking, ex-fashion-model, crop-dusting sleuth? That puts a quirky new spin on the genre, in R.P. Dahlke’s peppy debut, A Dead Red Cadillac.

Lalla (short for–or preferable to–Eula May) Baines is reaching a memorable conclusion to her thirty-ninth year. Still limping around, recovering… Continue reading

Review: Dead Wood by Dani Amore: Another Terrific $2.99 at Kindle

[subscribe2]Dead Wood by Dani Amore: Kindle e-book $2.99

 

The dead wood of this book refers to both old wood salvaging from Michigan’s Lake St. Clair and the incredibly gifted guitars made of them by Jesse Barre, the young, talented, beautiful and recently murdered daughter of an elderly retired country western crooner/songwriter who is asking John Rockne, P.I. for help finding her killer.

The author gives us a wonderfully complex character in John Rockne, a P.I. who is not, as his wife says, Russell Crowe. He’s saddled with a sister who is the Grosse Pointe’s Chief of Police and… Continue reading
