I’ve been publishing mysteries since 2012, but this month marks a new first – I’ve got an audio version available! It’s been a terrific journey and I can’t wait to hear what you think.
Check out the audio of The Deadly Art of Deception then come back and post a comment about it. Don’t have Audible? You can get my book free when you do a free trial. Win-win for everybody, right?
This is the first book of my Caribou King Mysteries, set in the mythical cruise ship town of Coho Bay, Alaska, published by Cozy Cat Press. Cara is surprised when her old friend Taylor shows up at the end of the season. Taylor’s husband, Cara’s childhood friend, had been killed in a bear attack the previous year and when his father accused Taylor of orchestrating Johnny’s death, she’d left town in a hurry. Now she’s back and while no one believes Jack’s drunken ravings, there’s definitely something she’s not being honest about. When a mutilated corpse is pulled from the Bay, an icy chill sweeps through the town and suddenly everyone — even Cara’s sister, Mel — seems to be hiding something.
Who can you trust when it seems everyone is lying?
Speaking of Caribou…. I just finished the first re-write of book two, The Deadly Art of Love & Murder and I’m heading into the second today. After that, it’s in the hands of a few trusted beta readers, re-write number three then off to my publisher for their editor. Look for the book in September if all goes according to plan. (Yeah, right. When does my life ever go according to plan?)
What about Jake & Emma? I’m so happy you enjoy this series and don’t worry. While I’m working through the final stages of Caribou, I’ll be starting work on book six. It doesn’t have a title yet, but let me give you a snapshot of the story.
Grace returns to California on mysterious business but when someone tries to kill her, Emma & Jake drop everything to come to her aid. Will his loyalty to his wife’s mentor cost Jake the election for County Attorney? Meanwhile, Matt gets a job offer that would take him out of Casper. It’s a great opportunity, but when Kristy hesitates, will he turn it down to stay with her?
What I’m Reading
One of the things I get as an Amazon Prime member is a preview book each month. I admit, I rarely take advantage of this because the books they offer haven’t really appealed to me. This month though, I’m reading their P.S. From Paris, by Marc Levy. It’s a bit different from most of the books I read, since I am a mystery-junkie, but I’m enjoying it so far. It’s the story of an American man and British woman, both in Paris and both at an emotional cross-roads. Check it out and let me know what you think.
