Even More Christmas Book Giving Ideas!

There's romance, there's intrigue, there's murder, but best of all there's Eve Appel, a gal into high end fashion who's not afraid to get her hands dirty.When Jenny McCleary leases her property to be ravaged by the annual mud bog races, the small rural town of Sabal Bay, Florida, is divided into warring camps: environmental activists versus monster truck fans. 

Jenny, who frequents the consignment store owned by Eve Appel and her friend Madeleine, doesn’t seem to mind when Eve and Madeleine join the protesters the day of the races. During the race, Eve catches Jenny’s airborne head after it is tossed into the air by the wheels of a truck. 

Now every protester is a suspect in Jenny’s murder. . Even without the disembodied head, Eve has her hands full. The town resents her role in the protests and is boycotting the consignment shop on wheels. She is torn between two men—GQ-handsome, devoted PI Alex and tall, dark, and exotic Sammy. Jenny’s sweet and needy teenage daughter is dating a petty criminal. Will Eve and Madeleine ever be able to move into their new digs? Not unless the town forgives them. And not if whoever decapitated Jenny gets to Eve before she and her sleuthing buddies solve the mystery. Book 4 in the Eve Appel Mystery series.

Who should read it:
Entertaining for women of all ages and those guys who like their women sassy.

THE SLEUTH SISTERS would make a great Christmas gift for a sister or other female relative. 

Not only is it a best-selling, award-winning mystery, but you'll introduce her to a series that focuses on sisters and the bonds between them--some good and others less than good.

Barb (the responsible one), Faye (the caring one), and Retta (the fun-loving one) are as different as sisters can be, but they start a detective agency in mid-life, each for her own reasons. They seldom agree on how to run it, but they come together when trouble arises,as sisters do. 

One reviewer comments: "If you have sisters, you have to read this book!"



Mojo For Murder: A Bertie Bigelow Mystery

Do you believe in magic?

There’s a hex on Charley Howard’s Hot Links Emporium, and Charley, a.k.a. the Hot Sauce King, is furious.  He suspects the Jamaican psychic who’s been “advising” his gullible wife Mabel is a phony, and he asks choir director Bertie Bigelow to do a little amateur sleuthing to help him prove it.

But Bertie’s already got all the drama she can handle.

The high-profile concert she’s doing with The Ace Of Spades, an ageing (but still sexy) rap star, has Metro College in an uproar.  Her on-again, off-again flirtation with attorney David Mackenzie has hit a dead end, and her best friend Ellen Simpson has been seduced and abandoned for the third time this year.

When a Chicago Zoning Commissioner is rushed to the emergency room after filling up on the Soul Food Special at Charley’s restaurant, Bertie is forced to take action. She doesn’t need a crystal ball to know that there’s trouble on the horizon.

On the South Side of Chicago, a murderer lies in wait for Bertie Bigelow.  To solve this case, she's going to need all the mojo she can get.

Will Bertie get her mojo working in time? 

When it's cold and snowy and you're trapped inside with cabin fever, what more could you ask for than a romantic adventure in the Southwestern desert? If you can't get there in person, travel in the pages of a book with a couple of spunky women, a handsome helicopter pilot, and a precocious cat.
