Murder of a Good Man Book Tour Day Four!

Today we are off to My Reading Journeys for an interview and a wonderful review! Thank you very much.  Her logo states she started her reading journey with Trixie Belden. Remember that series? Strangely enough, I think I started with Little Women. No, I’m not that old, but I was at a small town library and they hadn’t updated the fiction for a while. Loved those girls.

After that, we head to Storybook Reviews.

“An intriguing start to a new series set in the Piney Woods of East Texas…”  4 Paws!

I will be sharing this review with Max and Martin, my amazing dog co-writers.  

Murder of a Good Man Book Tour Day 3!

Welcome to day three of my book tour! Today I’m at Island Confidential where Nora Alexander, my main character tells all about the book and a little about me! Then I received a wonderful review at Books a Plenty Book Reviews. I kind of like the idea of being on an island with books aplenty.  Works for me!  Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a digital copy of Murder of a Good Man and a $20 gift card from Amazon!

Murder of a Good Man Book Tour Day 2-Join me at Bab’s Bistro and Readeropolis

I hope you got a good night’s sleep because today we are off to Bab’s Book Bistro (I’ll take a tall coffee and a couple of those cinnamon rolls, Babs!) and Readeropolis.

Prize Guy wanted me to tell you–don’t forget to enter the giveaway!  (1) E-Copy of Murder of a Good Man (A Piney Woods Mystery) by Teresa Trent plus a $20 Amazon Gift Card

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

Upcoming Release with Camel Press: Murder of a Good Man

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.
