Another Wonderful-Me Wednesday!

A bit big-headed, isn’t it?  Well, it’s all about shameless self-promotion . . . that I don’t partake of too often.

But today, I feel a need to bolster this flagging, ill body and soul <sniffle, snort, snuffle>.  This week, I received a five-star review on Goodreads for Can You Hula like Hilo Hattie?

And I’m feeling a need to share.

Hilo Hattie is the 2nd book in the series but the first case for the The Triple Threat Investigation Agency.

I listened to the audiobook of The Connecticut Corpse Caper, the first book in the series (my review is posted), and I really enjoyed getting acquainted with the three leading ladies. Each one has a different personality that becomes highlighted when they work together. I also appreciated the writing style of the author – witty banter along with vivid descriptions of settings and actions. All in all, an enjoyable “read”.

This second book is no exception. I love reading about strong, independent, smart women who also, importantly, possess a sense of humour. It is easy to get caught up with these three ladies and their investigations. The dialogue is fast paced and witty. I found myself laughing out loud several times and rereading certain passages just for the appreciation of the writing style.

I also love reading about Hawaii. I have always wanted to go, but the length and cost of the trip always deters me from booking a flight. However, the description of the various locales, the food and drink, and the way of life brings the islands to life for me.

I have ordered the third book in the series, Coco’s Nuts, and am looking forward to reading more about JJ, Rey, Linda, and, of course, Cash.

This truly made my day, week, month.  <LOL>

Thank you “timc” for an awesome review!

I'm primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (I enjoy playing detective and developing structure). My fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. My genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction. So-o, here I am, staring up a new blog for aspiring and established e-Book writers. The plan: to share the (long) journey of getting to this stage, and share "learnings" and "teachings". There's a lot I hope to accomplish with this blog, but it may be a while before that happens as there's a lot on the ol' plate - taking care of Mom, working full-time, and attempting to get another book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series written (never mind blog postings and other writing projects). It's very challenging and it's all good. As I like to say: teeny focused baby steps are just as effective as long forceful strides. It may take a little longer, but we will get there.
