Get a Grip . . . on a Gripping Psychological Mystery

Today marks the first post featuring Debbie De Louise’s five-star mystery Sea Scope . . . which happens to be f-r-e-e starting today, Dec 21st, through the 25th.

Before providing details about her latest book, let me introduce you to my fellow writer.  DDL is an award-winning author, as well as a public-library librarian on Long Island, where she also resides.  In addition to a hubby and daughter, she has three kitties (hugs to my fellow cat lover).

Published novels include:

Cloudy Rainbowa paranormal romance   /   the Cobble Cove Mystery series, featuring A Stone’s ThrowBetween a Rock and a Hard PlaceWritten in Stone, and Love on the Rocks   /   When Jack Trumps Ace, a romantic comedy novella   /   articles and short stories for several anthologies (various genres)   /   Reason to Die and Sea Scope, standalones.

Let’s focus on her latest: the dark and absorbing Sea Scope.  Here’s a brief tantalizing teaser . . .

Book illustrator Sarah Collins needs an escape (don’t we all?).  Grieving over her brother’s passing and lamenting the break-up of her marriage, she returns to Sea Scope, a childhood home in lovely South Carolina.  Twenty years previous, Sarah and Glen, her brother, had discovered a dead body by a lighthouse.  Back then, she’d never been able to fathom why her parents had departed Sea Scope so quickly, nor why her father took his own life a year later.  Upon return, she must confront memories, messages . . . and odd clues written in crayon from someone claiming to be Glen.  The past and present collide like vehicles on an ice-covered freeway, and Sarah has no option but to tackle ghastly facts head-on about that bizarre summer two decades past.  How will she cope?

Intrigued?  I should hope so.  Sea Scope is FREE from December 21 through December 25.  The universal link to the book is: mybook.to/SeaScope.

You can also find it on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PPW1D41/

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!

A Title is Everything – So Have One (!)

It’s JJ and I’ll just keep this post short and sweet (it’s clean-up day at the agency)

Coco’s Nuts is [still] available today through the 17th for a $0.99 and free promotion.  T’is the season: perhaps you’d like to give?

This mystery, the third in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, revolves around our second case as professional private eyes.  The three of us—Rey, Linda, and I—endeavor to prove that our client, Buddy Feuer, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker, didn’t commit two murders.  The evidence is vast, but we’re sure that Buddy’s been set up.  There’s also Coco Peterson, who’s been MIA since the murders went down—this nut plays a major role in all that’s transpired.  We love challenges and Coco’s Nuts sends several our way.

Plugging the Coco’s Nuts’ Promo (again)

You’ve got Linda today.  I’ll just stick to the “message” on this lovely Monday.

Coco’s Nuts is available today (through the 17th) for a $0.99 and free promotion.

This cozy with grit (as the Boss likes to describe it ) revolves around our second case as professional P.I.s.  The three of us—Rey, JJ, and myself—endeavor to prove that our client, Buddy Feuer, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker, didn’t commit two murders.  The evidence is stacked against her, but we’re certain that Buddy’s been set up.  There’s also nutbar Coco Peterson, who’s been MIA since the murders went down; he plays a chief part in all that transpired.  We enjoy challenges, as you know, and Coco’s Nuts sends a few tests and trials our way.

Nuts for Coco’s Nuts’ Promo

The three of us flipped a coin (don’t ask) and I won—hey, it’s Rey again!  You know, I’m actually enjoying this.  Maybe I’ll become a blogger one day.

So-o, my friends, Coco’s Nuts is available today (through the 17th) for a $0.99 and free promotion.  Considering it’s so-o close to the holidays, why not think about stuffing a few friends’ stockings?

You may be wondering what this cozy (with grit) is about . . . ?  It’s our second “official” case, where the three of us—Linda, Cousin JJ, and me—intend to prove our client, Buddy Feuer, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker, didn’t commit two murders.  Despite what the evidence suggests, we’re positive that Buddy’s been set up.   There’s also super nutty Coco Peterson, who’s been MIA since the murders went down; he certainly plays a major part in all that went down, but man he’s a hard dude to find.  But we don’t give up, nope, not us; we’re as persistent as ants at a church picnic.

Linda says begging doesn’t become me, so I humbly ask that you check out Coco’s Nuts on Amazon . . . uh . . . plea-ease:

Last Day for the Forever Poi Promotion . . . the Second for Coco’s Nuts

Ho-ho-how about a cozy (with a wee bit of grit) for the holiday stocking?  How about two?  Hey, it’s Rey again!

So, today I’m posting about two promos.  It’s the last day for Forever Poi and the the second for Coco’s Nuts.  Both feature three pretty private eyes—me, Cousin Jilly, and my best friend, Linda.

I’ll keep it short and sweet.  Both books are available for a $0.99 and free promotion.

Forever Poi has the three of us trying to figure out who set two trendy Chinatown art galleries on fire, and left a couple of corpses in the rubble.  There are a few suspects—like a self-absorbed gallery owner with a dicey past, an art consultant who’s as beautiful as she is dangerous, a risk-loving photographer, and an art manager with a shady past.

Coco’s Nuts has us aiming to prove our client, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer, isn’t responsible for two murders.  She didn’t kill her boss, an infamous entrepreneur, any more than she murdered her best friend.  Despite what the evidence suggests, we’re sure that Buddy’s been set up.  Then there’s super nutty Coco Peterson, who’s been MIA since the murders went down.  He’s a central piece in this knotty puzzle.  The cast of curious characters sure keeps us on our toes.  But we’re good at what we do, even if we go about things a little, hmm, differently from our fellow P.I.s

You’d sure make my-uh-our day if you’d give one or both a read.

Friday the 13th Double Whammy – LOL – Plugging the Forever Poi Promotion (Day 4) & Publicizing the Coco’s Nuts Promotion (Day 1)

It’s JJ today.  Like my colleagues, I’ll stick to the Boss’ post re the current promotion featuring Forever PoiBut I also have to tell you about Coco’s Nuts!

Let’s start with the ongoing promo first . . .

 The fourth book in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series, Forever Poi—which features Rey, Linda and me—is available for a $0.99 and free promotion December 10—14.

To give you an idea of what transpires, here’s the Boss’ summary:

Novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled [hmm, not sure about that], through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?

If you have family and friends who enjoy cozies with a little grit, then Forever Poi would make a nice little holiday gift.

And Coco’s Nuts is available for the same deal, starting today through the December 17, for $0.99 and a free promotion.

Here’s the Boss’ sum-up:

The Triple Threat Investigation Agency private eyes must prove their client, once-socialite-Vassar-grad-turned-trucker Buddy Feuer, isn’t responsible for two murders.  She had no motive to kill her boss, an infamous entrepreneur, nor did she murder her best friend.  Despite what the evidence suggests, JJ, Rey and Linda are convinced that Buddy has been set up.  Nutty Coco Peterson, who has been MIA since the murders went down, appears to be a central piece in this perplexing puzzler. As the rookie P.I.s strive to uncover a killer amid yet another cast of curious and unconventional characters, they meet up with old acquaintances who may not have their best interests at heart.  Exploding bombs suggest they’ve ruffled feathers by asking too many questions.  Hopefully, they’ll obtain legitimate answers before something significant blows up—like the Triple Threat gals.

Coco’s Nuts blends mystery, mayhem, and humor . . . and could serve as the perfect little festivities’ break.

The Forever Poi Promotion (Day 3)

Linda here.  Like Rey, I think I’ll stay true to the Boss’ post regarding the promotion of our fourth adventure.

 Forever Poi—featuring Rey, JJ, and myself—is available for a $0.99 and free promotion December 10th through the 14th.  You have a couple more days, but who’s counting?

The summary, per The Boss:

Novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled—like Rey, I don’t think we did either, but to each his or her own—through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?  [We did have our challenges.]

If you know someone who likes cozies with a little grit, then Forever Poi would make a lovely little stocking-stuffer.  You could treat yourself, too.

Promoting the Forever Poi Promotion (Day 2)

Hey, it’s Rey!  I’m gonna stick to the Boss’ script regarding the promotion of our fourth exploit-uh-escapade-uh-case.

Forever Poi—the fourth Triple Threat Investigation Agency book featuring us fantastic female private eyes (that’s me, my cousin JJ and my BFF Linda) is available for a $0.99 and free promotion December 10th through the 14th.  Coo-ool, you’ve got a three more days.

As The Boss tells it: novice P.I.s JJ, Rey and Linda have stumbled and fumbled [hey, I beg to differ] through two major cases with surprisingly stellar results.  Now, the trio has to discover who set ablaze two happening Chinatown art galleries, which left a couple of charcoal-broiled corpses in the rubble.  Any number of persons in the local art world could be responsible.  A cast of curious suspects includes a haughty gallery owner with a questionable past, an art consultant as treacherous as she is beautiful, a risk-loving photographer, and an aspiring manager with a dicey history.  Perhaps determining the reason will help: a major insurance pay-out, the ugly break-up of a long-term relationship, out-and-out evil vengeance, or a cover-up for felonious transgressions?  They certainly had us going!

Perhaps you know someone who likes cozies with a touch of grit?  Yeah?  Then Forever Poi is the perfect little stocking-stuffer (stuff it in yours, too).
