My New Mystery Series Launches Friday!

Hi folks,

I hope everyone is doing well and has survived the marathon campaign season. I know I’m glad it’s over!

Thanks again for all your support with the launch of The Duplicates. And I’m sorry I’ve been quiet since then but I’ve been working on the development of a new series; The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries and I’m pleased to announce that I’ve finished the first three books in the series.

The new series is different from my other books and I hope I don’t confuse too many of my current readers as I venture into this new genre for a while. 🙂 My other books are probably best described as adult crime thrillers and deal with a lot of themes that lend themselves to more of a global setting. And after seven books, I decided I wanted to take a bit of a break from that genre and do a wholesome series with a small town setting focusing on the characteristics and values of the people who enjoy living in a close-knit community.

As you know, I spend a lot of time on my characters and use a lot of comedy in my books. I thought my idea for the Thousand Islands Doggy Inn series would enable me to maintain my writing style while expanding into the mystery genre. Also, I’ve wanted to pay tribute to the Thousand Islands, the area where I grew up, for quite a while now. And I’m doing my best to highlight aspects of what it’s like to live there in a way so that the area almost becomes another character in the series. After I had decided to do a cozy mystery series that would pay tribute to the Thousand Islands, I wanted to include two other things I love; dogs and good food.

And soon the idea of having two female main characters with a love for the same three things was born. In short, Suzy Chandler, along with her best friend and business partner, Josie, own and operate the Thousand Islands Doggy Inn, a place they created to provide dogs with the things they deserve; which is the best of everything. As best friends, they share a lot of common interests, constantly bounce ideas off each other, and sometimes gets cranky with each other and bicker. I love writing Suzy and Josie’s characters and I think their relationship and reactions to the things that unfold around them is what makes the series so special. The Doggy Inn they own and operate is a combination full-service veterinary operation, boarding service, and a large dog rescue program. Since Suzy and Josie have a strict No Kill policy, the Doggy Inn is usually overflowing with rescue dogs, along with boarders and other dogs they consider part of their family.

The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn mysteries is an alphabet series, and one specific breed is featured in each book, and I’m pleased to announce that the first two books in the series are available for Pre-Order on Amazon. Book three will be launching around Christmas.

I think you’re going to enjoy the new series! And as always, I’d love to hear from you if you have any feedback or questions. And, of course, Amazon reviews are always greatly appreciated.

Suzy Chandler, along with her best friend and business partner, Josie, own and operate the Thousand Islands Doggy Inn, a place they created to provide dogs with the things they deserve; which is the best of everything. One morning while fishing, they hook a really big one; the dead body of a rich candy magnate who owns an island in the area. They also find Chloe, an Australian Shepherd puppy, swimming nearby and frantically trying to survive the trauma of being thrown overboard in the middle of the night.

A fast-paced and funny mystery unfolds that affectionately focuses on dogs, food, and the natural beauty of the Thousand Islands region as Suzy and Josie embark on a mission to protect Chloe as well as figure out who killed the candy magnate. And as the list of suspects grows, and the victims pile up, they find themselves dealing with a unique cast of characters and wondering if they just might be the next target.

With Suzy and Josie, The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries features two of the smartest and funniest lead female protagonists to hit the cozy mystery scene in a very long time, and their affection for food and boundless love and devotion to their dogs puts this new series in the Don’t Miss category. The Case of the Abandoned Aussie gets this fresh alphabet series off to a great start, and B.R. Snow promises that readers are in for a long, wild, and highly entertaining ride as the series moves forward.

Suzy and Josie, owners of the Thousand Islands Doggy Inn, are attending an end-of-summer party and about to receive a sizeable charitable gift from one of their good friends, a local businessman with a love of dogs and a reputation with the ladies. A newly built yacht about to embark on a trip to Florida via the Inland Waterway is one of the party highlights, but when the engineer is killed, and Jackson, the Clay Bay Chief of Police, ends up in critical condition, the yacht becomes the focal point of the ensuing murder investigation.

In addition to trying to solve the murder, Suzy and Josie are forced to deal with a variety of other problems and distractions. Jackson’s bulldog, Sluggo, is despondent and not eating. And as Jackson fights for his life and attempts to recover from the attack, Suzy’s mom begins a new relationship she believes has the potential to go the distance. And if that weren’t enough, when Chef Claire threatens to take a new job out of state, putting a serious damper on the quality of food served at the house, Suzy and Josie are pushed to their limits.

The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries features two of the smartest and funniest lead female protagonists to hit the cozy mystery scene in a very long time, and Suzy and Josie’s affection for food and their boundless love and devotion to their dogs puts this new series in the Don’t Miss category. The Case of the Brokenhearted Bulldog is another fast-paced and funny cozy mystery installment in this series that affectionately focuses on dogs, food, and the natural beauty of the Thousand Islands region.

    I do not use an e-reader either. I enjoy holding an actual book and turning pages as I read. Do you publish your books in paperback. The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mystery Series sounds delightful and I would love to read it.

    I love The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mystery Series! I like the fact it is a wholesome series and love all the characters especially Suzy and Josie, who has a never ending supply of snickers! I like Chef Claire, though she should make up her mind between Jackson and Freddy and Rooster is a great example of not judging a book by its cover! Just finished The Case of the Dapper Dandie Dinmont and read the sneak preview of The Case of the Eccentric Elkhound! When is it available?
    Thanks!
