Patches In The Rye, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery #5:
.

Nothing about her new client is what service dog trainer Marcia Banks expected—from the posh house that says family money to his paranoid preoccupation with his sister’s love life—but when he dangles a thousand dollar retainer under her nose, she can’t resist his request to play private detective.

In between training sessions with her client’s new service dog, Marcia learns the sister’s boyfriend has a sketchy past. He seems to have turned over a new leaf, but as she digs deeper, more disturbing and confusing questions arise. How is a disastrous frat party five years ago linked to blackmail, prostitutes, and murder today? And who is behind the wheel of the black SUV that keeps trying to turn Marcia and her canine companion Buddy into roadkill?

Marcia can’t let it go, not when there are innocents at risk who are depending on her to find the truth. But the deepest, darkest truth is one she wishes she never uncovered.

Hi Folks!

Sorry I’ve been quiet for so long. But I’ve been busily editing and polishing the next Marcia Banks and Buddy cozy mystery, The Call of the Woof (Book 3).

And today is Cover Reveal Day!! Woot!

Hope to have it up for preorder by 7/10 and release day is 7/20, so stay tuned!

My cover designer, Melinda VanLone found this image. Isn’t he adorable?

book cover

Army veteran Jake Black has a new lease on life, thanks to service dog Felix and his trainer, Marcia Banks. Despite a traumatic brain injury, Jake’s able to ride his beloved motorcycle again, with Felix in the sidecar. But his freedom to hit the open road is threatened once more when he and his wife are accused of robbery.

Called in to dog-sit, Marcia can’t sit idly by. She and her mentor dog, Buddy, set out to clear the Blacks’ name, fighting misconceptions about bikers and the nature of TBI along the way. When murder is added to the mix, Marcia redoubles her efforts, despite anonymous threats and her sheriff boyfriend’s strenuous objections, both to her putting herself at risk… and to dragging him along on her wild ride.

 

Official Launch of Zero Hero and A Contest!

Finally launch day has arrived!

ZERO HERO is a reality and now available for purchase as an e-book (paperback coming soon).

To celebrate, I’m holding a little contest, now through December 21st. First prize is a 9/11 commemorative charm necklace (silver-plated; 9/11 image can be removed and necklace can be used as a locket to hold any treasured photo). Both winners also get a free e-book copy of Multiple Motives, Book 1 in the series.

(Why am I giving away Multiple Motives instead of Zero Hero? Because I’m hoping you will buy Zero Hero to get this story off to a great start! It’s just $1.99 through the 21st. Price goes up to $3.99 after that.)

Second prize is a 10th anniversary tote bag (and again an e-copy of Multiple Motives).

Why is the 10th anniversary important? Because that’s when Pete Jamieson’s troubles begin.

cover of Zero Hero

On the 10th anniversary of 9/11 the media replays the videos of that day’s devastation, and a national hero’s life begins to unravel.

When the first responder, already struggling with delayed PTSD and addiction, is accused of murdering his former drug dealer, psychotherapist Kate Huntington finds herself going above and beyond to help him. As she and her P.I. husband set out to clear him of the charges, they are thrust into a deadly world of drugs, prostitutes and hired killers, and end up questioning who they are and what it means to be brave.

Low introductory price of $1.99 (through 12/21)
