The Seventh Book in the Pecan Bayou Series is ON ITS WAY!

I have written six books in the Pecan Bayou Series where Betsy, The Happy Hinter has tripped over bodies in a haunted hospital, in a library, in a swarm of bees, by a cowboy fountain, in a burned out building and even fought off a hurricane while being chased by a murderer while in labor. Okay, that last one is a little much for any woman, but now my Betsy is off another adventure. I’m not ready to reveal all yet, other than Pecan Bayou #7 will be available in the last week of April 2017.  The book will also be FREE for the first five days in May so as much as I want you to buy the book, I’d love for you to pick it up for free and leave a review on Amazon.

Here is a little corner of the book cover. And now, all of you cozy detectives out there–what do you see? What will this book be about?

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

March 21 is  World Down Syndrome Day. Why 3-21? Because people with Down Syndrome are diagnosed as Trisomy  21 which means they have 3 twenty-first chromosomes instead of 2. Please take a moment and watch WDSD Global Video.

I am the proud mother of a son with Down Syndrome and being acknowledged and heard can be a daily battle for him.

For 2017, Down Syndrome International presents #MyVoiceMyCommunity, messages from people with Down syndrome, among their friends and peers.

They talk about how it is important for their voices to be heard, as equal citizens of their countries and they encourage their governments to listen to their concerns.

I think just about anyone would love this new series whether you are artistic or not it draws you in and has you wanting to learn more about the people of Henry Park and see where the residents go from here!

A fast-paced read, I stayed up way past my bedtime to finish it.
~Cassidy’s Bookshelves

This is a well crafted cozy mystery that will keep you rethinking your choice of murderer until the final page is turned. Most readers change their mind at least three times.

It Was a Wonderful Tour

This has been a whirlwind week and an incredible tour. Sadly, Color Me Dead‘s free days are over on Kindle, but thanks to your downloads the book hit #3 on the Free Cozies with Animals list.

I’d like to say thank you to Lori at Escape with Dollycas for being such a kind and caring professional. Also, thank you to all of the bloggers who read the book and wrote such detailed and beautiful reviews and then tweeted the heck out of it!

Luigi, the beagle, needs a nap, so once again, thanks for a great week!

For my last beagle picture this week, I am posting the only picture I can find of my own beagle, Goliath.  This photo was taken in Colorado back when I was a teenager. I had to wake him up to take the picture. If I remember right, this was actually a polaroid that was scanned. (That sure dates it!)

Let’s Go! Vroom…Vroom…Of course I’ll be riding in the cab, not the back 🙂

The blog tour continues! Today I’m visiting four blogs and am enjoying visiting with everyone this week. The download numbers have been great, and I appreciate all of the reviews the book is getting. When I’m not on tour, I love to have other cozy mysteries visit me when they are on tour. I can tell you, some months when I get busy writing, it’s hard to find time to read and review a book, so I really appreciate their efforts. Here are my stops for today! Come and join me and be sure to leave a comment, so I know you stopped by.
