I Love a Good Mystery!


Review: TROUBLE UP FINNEY’S NOSE by Dana Mentink

In my book, Dana Mentink is a bonafide master! She’s an award-winning suspense author, and has several highly successful romance novels, (love her “Love Unleashed” series starring various adorable dogs!) but started her career in cozy mysteries. Wow! Just Wow!

Trouble Up Finney's NoseMy daughter and I had the pleasure of listening to the first of her cozy series set in a quirky, small town on coast of northern California. Trouble Up Finny’s Nose had us in hysterics one moment and twisted in curiosity the next.

Picking this Story Apart

GF4title-lessToday, I’m setting up my dedication page, discussion questions, and a special item that I want to include. Grime Family will be out in a few weeks. Woohoo! I’m so excited to share this book with you.

While the release is still a couple of weeks off, the cover is done! Yea! And yes, I could simply share it with you today, but the truth is, I already had the cover article set for Thursday before I decided to add today’s post.

I know, lame excuse, will you forgive me?

Okay, if not forgiving me now, then maybe on Thursday when I do end up sharing my new cover. Can’t wait!


Celebrating the Fourth… and other things!

GB12x1831Happy Fourth weekend! I hope you’ve got great plans for celebration.

Here in North Texas, it’s HOT HOT HOT! (And not in any sort of good way!) My girls are returning from a retreat in the mountains where they’ve been bragging about the cool climate. My only consolation about the heat is that they’re coming back to the hottest temperatures so far this summer.

Yeah, I’m gonna figure out a way to blame them for it. 🙂

The truth is, I have more than the Fourth of July to celebrate this month! My 4th book in the Grime Fighter Mystery Novella Series releases sometime around the 15th! Woohoo! In honor of GRIME FAMILY I’m offering GRIME BEAT (book 1 of the series) for free this weekend! If you haven’t read it, download the ebook and enjoy!

And be sure to share about this freebie. I’d be happy to never sell another copy of GRIME BEAT again if folks will take full advantage of its “free-ness”!

Your turn: Aside from reading an outstanding book, what do you enjoy doing on the Fourth of July?
