If you missed yesterday’s stops Murder of a Good Man received a great review from Laura’s Interests.
Family secrets abound in this small town novel. Nora has one last thing to deal with before her old life comes to its conclusion and she begins again. She has no idea why her mother wants a letter hand delivered. As life takes unexpected turns for Nora and secrets unfold, she repeatedly wonders why her mother could not just have mailed her last letter.
Characters who you want to like while not knowing who you can trust.
Characters who you want to dislike, but you see they have redeeming value.
Not an easy mystery to figure out. ~Laura’s Interests Book Blogger

Just hearing about this book? Here’s the scoop! (cooking term)
This is our biggest anthology yet! Fifteen multi-published and bestselling authors have written short stories to entertain, baffle, and amuse you. As always, the book includes an email address so you can send away for a bonus file full of recipes and craft ideas that go with each story.
Cooking can be murder, especially when these 15 authors get involved. These are all-new, never published stories that’ll satisfy your hunger for good, clean reads with a criminal intent.
I am happy to announce MURDER OF A GOOD MAN with Camel Press will be coming out January 15, 2018. This will be my second series that takes place in Texas and the story centers around a historic hotel in an oil-bust town.
When Nora Alexander drives into Piney Woods, Texas, to fulfill her dying mother’s last wish, she has no idea what awaits her. First, she is run off the road, then the sealed letter she delivers turns out to be a scathing rebuke to the town’s most beloved citizen and favored candidate for Piney Woods Pioneer: Adam Brockwell. Next thing you know, Adam has been murdered in a nasty knife attack. Suspicion instantly falls on Nora, one of the last people to see him alive. After all, everyone in Piney Woods loved him. Or did they? Turns out Nora’s mother had a complicated past she never shared with her daughter.
Told not to leave town by Tuck the flirty sheriff, Nora finds a job with Tuck’s Aunt Marty trying to get the rundown Tunie Hotel back in the black. The old hotel was Piney Woods’ heart and soul in its heyday as an oil boomtown. Now the secrets it harbors may be the key to getting Nora off the hook. She’s going to need to solve the mystery quickly to avoid arrest, or worse: becoming the killer’s next victim.
Book 1 in the Piney Woods Mystery series.
