In my Piney Woods Series, I write about a historic hotel, which was inspired by the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado. I grew up not too far from the Stanley and it is also the hotel that was featured in The Shining. Check out this bear coming in the window at three in the morning!
Hmmm, I wonder if he used Expedia or Priceline for his reservation?
If you love reading about hotels, may I recommend Murder of a Good Man?
A bear free establishment.
Good books have a rhythm and this one never lost a beat. Books really do have a rhythm. There are those which seem to stop and start and those which flow as smoothly as a waltz. There is nothing more enjoyable than to read a book with no “hiccups” in the rhythm. Well, this first book in the Piney Woods Mystery Series was a waltz. I enjoyed every moment of it and the author truly never missed a step.
~Long and Short Reviews
This story has a great vibe to it and fits the cozy mystery category perfectly. [….] I thoroughly enjoyed all of the twists, some I did not even see coming. All of the characters were well-developed and each added their own touch.”
~Coffeetime Romance and More
This is the first in Trent’s series set in Piney Woods, and it bodes well for the series. As cozies go, this is not only a fun read, but it moves along quite well. [….] This is a keeper

“Small town Texas charm and a fabulous eye for detail.

Family secrets abound in this small town novel. . . Not an easy mystery to figure out.
There is an amazing amount of secrets revealed that I never really saw coming making this a fascinating read, to say the least.

The characters are fun, believable, charming and welcoming.

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.

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
