New Releases!

As promised, my latest book in The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries, launched yesterday. It’s book #8 in the series and is called The Case of the Hurricane Hounds. It debuted at #2 on Amazon as a Hot New Release in the Dog category, and I’d like to thank all of you for your ongoing support.

And the number two slot was the one I was hoping for because, as soon as I learned that my good friend, Dianne Harman, was launching her latest on the same day, I knew the #1 slot would, deservedly, be reserved for her. And since she is such a wonderful person and terrific writer, the number one slot couldn’t go to a better individual.

(But I think I will check her launch schedule before I release my next one.)

Anyway, I thought you’d appreciate an overview of both books.

I hope you enjoy them!

The Case of the Hurricane Hounds

Suzy, along with Josie and Chef Claire, has finally succumbed to her mother’s pressure and are in the Cayman Islands for some relaxation and time in the sun. But on their first night there, a major storm blows through, and Suzy and Josie head outside to rescue a stray bloodhound they saw on the beach earlier in the day. But their rescue effort needs to be expanded when they realize the agitated bloodhound is trying to protect a female basset hound and her six puppies.

When the power goes out while they’re trying to get all eight dogs settled into her mother’s garage, Suzy wonders if their first day of vacation could get any stranger. Her question is soon answered when the lights come back on and Wily, a local financier with a reputation for philandering, is found stabbed to death in the living room. Before Suzy has time to even focus on who might have killed him, Jerome Crenshaw, an incredibly wealthy resident, gets killed in his own house the same way as Wily.

And as she embarks on trying to solve the murders, it soon becomes apparent that her mother has some ulterior motives of her own that could force Suzy, Josie, and Chef Claire to make some life-altering decisions. Surrounded by the ocean, and confronted with a diverse group of individuals as well as a few stingrays that are just a bit too close for comfort, all three women begin to wonder, that if they had wanted weirdness and murder, why did they leave home in the first place.

Murder in Whistler

When DeeDee and her boyfriend, Jake, head to Whistler, British Columbia, to see her sister, Roz, and enjoy a little down time from her new catering business, Deelish, and his job as a private investigator, the last thing they expect is to become involved in a murder.

What makes it even worse is the person murdered is DeeDee’s former neighbor, Johnny Roberts. He was a bigger-than-life person and the owner of a very successful Mercedes Benz dealership in Seattle, but did he have secrets? And who would want Johnny dead?

Was it the man who years ago had tried to get Johnny’s wife, Cassie, to leave Johnny and marry him? Was it the sexy saleswoman in Johnny’s dealership who didn’t care whether or not Johnny was married, but wanted revenge hen he rejected her? Was it his brother who resented Johnny for being the frugal administer of his trust fund? Or even the Mercer Island golf club pro who felt threatened by Johnny’s golf game?

Join, DeeDee, Jake, their husky dogs, Balto and Yukon, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, as they try to figure out who murdered Johnny Roberts and why.
