Rating: 5 out of 5

Richmond Telegraph crime reporter, Nichelle Clark, dreams of working for The Washington Post, however; she has yet to make an impression on them. Steadily working her beat, she’s never far from her police scanner in hopes of chasing the story that will give her the break she needs. When a drug dealer is found murdered, police are quick to assume it was a vigilante behind it, but nothing about the crime scene makes sense. Nichelle’s given a key piece of evidence and begins some overwhelming research, only to realize that everything is not what it seems to be. [Read more...]

Lowcountry Boil by Susan M. Boyer reviewed by Doris

 

MP900362831[1]The Low country of the South has been the setting of choice by a bunch of authors over the last ten years or so. Rich with Southern tradition and legend the area  offers Dorothea Benton Frank, Katherine Wall, Mary Kay Andrews, and Carolyn Hart—among many other authors—a great setting for mystery, romance, and crazy families. Susan M. Boyer’s Lowcountry Boil adds to the genre in a very good way. A first novel, Lowcountry Boil is a lively read with both appealing characters and enough plotting to keep you guessing until the end.  Hopefully Ms. Boyer will use this as a jumping off point for a series of books featuring this crew of characters.

Looking for Tour Hosts: Portrait of a Dead Guy Book Tour with Larissa Reinhart

portraitofatourWe are thrilled to announce that we are organizing a book tour with Larissa Reinhart, author of Portrait of a Dead Guy. This tour will run in April (exact dates to be confirmed) and will promote the first book in this series.

In Halo, Georgia, folks know Cherry Tucker as big in mouth, small in stature, and able to sketch a portrait faster than buckshot rips from a ten gauge — but commissions are scarce. So when the well-heeled Branson family wants to memorialize their murdered son in a coffin portrait, Cherry scrambles to win their patronage from her small town rival. 

As the clock ticks toward the deadline, Cherry faces more trouble than just a controversial subject. Between ex-boyfriends, her flaky family, an illegal gambling ring, and outwitting a killer on a spree, Cherry finds herself painted into a corner she’ll be lucky to survive.

Please remember:
1. Review copies are available as ebook copies only. Naturally ebook review copies are available US/Canada and internationally.
2. Due to Larissa’s writing commitments the only two options will be review and/or interview. There will be no guest blogs. If you choose “interview” you will be responsible for providing interview questions.
3. Please indicate your preferred day. However please be aware that we may not be able to accommodate your selected day. However, we will try our best.

Please fill in this form to register your interest for this tour.  If you have any questions please leave a comment or email us.
