End of Year Holiday Update

Hi, folks,

I can’t believe 2017 is almost over!

And I’d like to wish you and your family and friends Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and best wishes for a healthy and prosperous 2018.

I also want to thank all of you for your on-going support. I can’t imagine any author having a better group of fans and readers and I am eternally grateful for all you do on my behalf.

Here’s a quick update about what is going on in my neck of the woods in case you’re looking for some last minute shopping ideas.

We’re getting close to the launch date of Winter-Whodunnits, a collection of twelve cozy mysteries I’m participating in. All of the books in the set will be a special treat, and the collection is a must-have for every Cozy reader. The set is available for preorder now, and will release officially on January 2. The preorder price is just 99 cents for the whole dozen. It’ll be the best buck you’ve spent all year!

Here’s a bit about what readers are in store for.

While enjoying a cold but relaxing afternoon of early winter fishing just before Christmas with her good friend, Rooster, things suddenly change when they discover a rare Otterhound that has been caught in a trap. And when they find the dog’s deceased owner nearby, things get even stranger when they’re forced to make a very cold and dangerous trip through frozen marshland and icy water to save the dog and then get home before they and the dog freeze to death. In addition to dealing with a broken leg and the onset of hypothermia, the Otterhound is also pregnant, and Suzy and Josie decide to postpone their departure to the Cayman Islands and do everything they can to save the mom and her unborn puppies.

While trying to piece together exactly what is going on with the dog, Suzy learns that the Otterhound’s owner was the patriarch of an odd family that lives in the middle of the woods without running water or electricity. She also stumbles onto a black-market dog breeding enterprise operating in the area and is shocked to discover that Rooster’s cousin, previously banished to Florida, has returned to the area and is now working for the dog breeding operation in a rather unique role.

To further complicate things, Herman Billows, a representative working for a large energy company, is in the area and doing everything he can to obtain drilling rights to a newly discovered deposit of natural gas. Unfortunately for him, a lot of the land he’s trying to secure the rights on is owned by Rooster and Suzy’s mom, and they’re determined to do whatever it takes to keep Billows from ever getting his hands on it. But Billows, a man who doesn’t like to take no for an answer, has other ideas and is soon making life uncomfortable for everyone except the Friendly family who is more than willing to listen to what he has to offer.
With their trip to Grand Cayman on hold until the Otterhound has recovered, Suzy finds herself in the middle of a strange series of events as well as in the middle of deep snow that continues to fall as winter arrives in full force. Instead of walking the beach, she ends up with various bruises and nineteen stitches, trudging through deep snow on skis, exploring dark caves, and dealing with a unique cast of characters that leaves her grumpy and has her neurons racing.

The Case of the Overdue Otterhounds is the latest installment in B.R. Snow’s popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and deals with dogs, food, and the power of friendship set in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.

Book #14 in the Doggy Inn series, The Case of the Natty Newfie, is still the #1 Dog Breed book on Amazon and I’m happy to let you know that it’s now available in paperback. You can find it here: http://amzn.to/2DkbLKt

Here’s what Suzy and the gang get into while they’re enjoying an extended stay in Ottawa.

As the launch date of their new dog toy company approaches, Suzy, Josie, and Chef Claire are in Ottawa to do a photo shoot with their dogs as part of the initial marketing campaign. But the photographer, who moonlights for the tabloids, is a young man with a very bad public image and a reputation for being a bit of ladies’ man. And when his assistant is found dead in his downtown loft, the photographer is the number one suspect.

Suzy soon finds herself working with two Canadian detectives she met the last time she was in town and right in the middle of a bizarre case that includes some rather scandalous photographs, blackmail, and, quite possibly, a case of mistaken identity. Further complicating things is a huge early winter snowstorm that has everyone on edge and more than a few people severely under the weather.

As Suzy digs into the case, she comes face to face with a diverse group of potential suspects including The Black Widow, a socialite with five dead ex-husbands, a mining magnate who has inexplicably signed up to be husband number six, a couple of famous models, and the aunt of Suzy’s new boyfriend, Max, whose career ended abruptly when she was caught in an embarrassing situation, quite possibly by the very same photographer they’re using for the dogs’ photo shoot. Despite her latest resolution to take a step back and let the police do their thing, Suzy’s neurons are soon on fire, and, once again, she finds herself up to her neck in the case, and up to her waist in snow before she can get a good handle on exactly what’s going on.

The Case of the Natty Newfie is Book #14 in B.R. Snow’s popular Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and deals with dogs, food, and the power of friendship set in one of the most beautiful spots on the planet.
