Death in Advertising by Laura Bradford
A Tobi Tobias Mystery #1

When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.

Sometimes when opportunity knocks, the door you open leads to a closet. That’s certainly the case for Tobi, whose weekends spent cleaning cages in her best friend’s pet shop may soon be over. She’s just landed her first big break—Zander Closet Company needs a catchy campaign slogan ASAP, and Tobi thinks she’s got the right hook to knock ’em dead: “When we’re done, even your skeletons will have a place.”

But when a real dead body topples out of a showcase closet, she’s about to discover there is such a thing as bad publicity. To save her fledgling business and not get killed by the competition, Tobi takes on a new pet project: solving the murder. But with a stressed-out parrot as the only witness to the crime, Tobi will really have to wing it to put the cagey killer behind …

A Faith Hunter Scrap This Mystery #5

A Caribbean cruise is the perfect setting for a Roget wedding, and Faith meeting Ted’s family. She also hopes the vacation gets their stalled romance moving, but it doesn’t take long for that dream to capsize. Ted’s daughter hates her. The ex-wife is adored. Odessa Roget is surly. And the banned father of a groom, John Roget, requests Faith’s assistance in bringing down a jewel theft ring masterminded by his ex-wife.

Having had a man she loved accuse her of a crime, Faith won’t let Odessa travel down the same path and agrees to help. Faith sets her course on uncovering the true criminals—which might be a groom’s best friend. The romantic week turns disastrous as a wedding is interrupted, suspicious deaths point to murders, and Ted’s daughter schemes to reunite her parents. Instead of diamonds being a girl’s best friend, Faith finds they’re cruising toward Davy Jones’ Locker.

Curried Away by Gail Oust

Curried Away by Gail Oust

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
-Gail Oust

Or, maybe for whom the clock ticks, would be more appropriate when discussing the dreaded “D” word. Every writer dreams of having a book contract, but with every contract comes a deadline. I tend to believe that the “dead” part of deadline is significant. Deadlines are sneaky devils. They lull you into a false sense of complacency when they’re six, nine, or twelve months away. You think you have all the time in the world to whip your story into submission. While in this state of bliss, you take occasional days off to have a little fun, entertain out of town guests, or just goof off. You might agree to speaking engagements, attend a writers conference or two, or even volunteer to moderate a panel. No worry, you tell yourself, you have plenty of time. You have everything under control.

Bam! Then it hits you. A closer look at the calendar reveals the deadline you thought tame is about to pounce …

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan is book 4 in the Second Chance Cat Mystery series. This fun series features a great cast of characters. From second-hand shop owner Sarah, to a ‘gang’ of seniors in their prime and investigating crime, to a cat named Elvis, the eclectic mix of characters had me laughing out loud.

The author manages to tell a cohesive story with a well-plotted mystery, one that you will devour in a single setting. The compelling mystery, the great setting, and the fun characters are what keeps me coming back to this series. I’m planning on going back to read earlier books in the series that I missed. If you enjoy cozy mysteries with cats, some ‘older’ sleuths, and a story you won’t want to put down, I highly recommend this series. You won’t be disappointed.

Cat Got Your Diamonds by Julie Chase – Guest Post

Cat Got Your Diamonds by Julie Chase – Guest Post

Inspiration in the Big Easy

I fell in love with New Orleans last summer when I went there on business. I did the usual tourist things, walking tours and Voo Doo dinners. I rode the ferry to Algiers and spent an evening aboard a steamboat on the Mighty Mississippi. I also spent several days in the numerous wonderful and captivating museums of the French Quarter learning about the city’s history, Mardi Gras traditions and the endless tragedies of Hurricane Katrina. The trip changed me.

And then I rode a streetcar to the Garden District.

I saw the most beautiful homes Like nothing my Midwestern eyes had ever seen, and the stories began to formulate. Photos don’t do the area justice, but I’m going to try.

The above is just one of so many fantastic beauties. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to learn everything about this place immediately. So, I took a walking tour through the neighborhood and asked a ton of questions. I’m certain my guide wanted to muzzle me. The rest of my group probably had ideas about …
