Murder in the Cards by Paige Sleuth
Psychic Poker Pro Mystery Book 1
Marla Bradeen • July 1, 2018

Tiffany Swanson is finally living the dream when she quits her stressful job to become a poker pro. Except her dream job doesn’t turn out to be so perfect when she picks up the troubling vision of a murdered man from one of her opponents. Even more disturbing, Tiffany didn’t know she was telepathic.

Before long she finds herself spending more time investigating a homicide than playing cards. But with an entire wedding party to suspect and only one weekend to pinpoint the guilty party, how will Tiffany ever figure out “whodunit” in time?

    1. Hi, Becky! Many writers have inspired my love of reading. The books that stand out the most for me are the Trixie Belden books, which were my first introduction to mysteries, and Amy Tan’s The Hundred Secret Senses, which was the book that got me back into reading for fun in college. Thanks so much for asking! –Marla (aka Paige Sleuth)

      1. I also read Trixie Belden books when I was a child. And I love Amy Tan’s books as well.

  1. “Murder in the Cards” sounds like a great read. Interesting having a psychic poker player as a sleuth.

  2. Thank you for the spotlight on “Murder in the Cards” by Paige Sleuth. Love that our are having a #BrookeBlogsSummerPromo! 🙂 This book sounds one I’d love to read.

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of “Murder in Cherry Hills”. How can you not love that cat!

    1. It is impossible not to love Anna Belle, the cover model cat! She is the sweetest cat in real life, too. Thank you for your interest in my books, and good luck in the giveaway! –Marla (aka Paige Sleuth)

    1. Nowadays I find I prefer ebooks. It’s so nice to be able to carry your whole library around, and they make reading at night easier. It took a while for them to grow on me though! –Marla (Paige Sleuth)

    1. I’ve been writing for so long I can’t really remember! But I’ll have to go with 2013, which is when I really got into writing seriously and published my first book.

    1. I’m happy to answer your questions, Becky! If you’re interested, this book is currently on blog tour with a few author interviews scheduled, including one that’s already up. You can find the tour schedule here: As for your current question, I would have to say both, depending on whether I’m feeling inspired or not. If the inspiration isn’t there, writing can be draining. And I’m not the type of person who likes to write for long periods of time without a break. But then there are those rare times when I know what’s happening next and I can’t get the words down fast enough. Those are the fun times! Unfortunately, they don’t happen as often as I’d like, but when they do they are wonderful. –Marla (aka Paige Sleuth)

    1. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of trailers. I don’t watch them myself, nor have I ever put one together. But I know some people enjoy them. Personally, I’d rather read articles or author interviews if I want to know more about a book. –Marla (aka Paige Sleuth)

    1. Yes, I have many author friends. Most of them I only know online, but I have met a few local authors and some who have attended bookish events where I live. Some of the authors I’ve met are the nicest people around. If you ever get the chance, I encourage you to go to your local book events. They’re always fun! –Marla (aka Paige Sleuth)
