Day Five, One More High-Five

Hey, it’s Rey again!

Welcome to Day 5 of The Connecticut Corpse Caper promotion. It’s FREE one last day—today.

Caper set the stage (in more ways than one) for JJ, Linda and me becoming official private eyes.  We solved a murder (a few, actually) during a crazy week at our Aunt Mat’s old, super creepy mansion!

We actually had to stay there a week to collect on an inheritance.  Almost from the moment we got there, bodies started dropping.  Strange sounds flowed through walls and dark hallways, and we traveled along a few long damp passageways.  It was a puzzler, trying to figure out who the killer was.  And, man, did we uncover a few bizarre “secrets” along the way.

Maybe you’d like to check out our escapades (as JJ’s former boy-toy called them)?  We’d love it if you did.

Day 2 . . . For You

Hi there.  Welcome to Day 2 of The Connecticut Corpse Caper promotion—it’s FREE from Nov 8 – 12.

JJ liked yesterday’s post, so here I am again—Adwin, her ex-boyfriend.

Quick rundown: Caper had several of us staying at JJ’s eccentric aunt’s haunted mansion for a week—anyone who could last the week would luck in re the inheritance.  If anyone left before then, their share would go into the pot. 

I thought I’d share a moment (one of many, let me tell you) when things started getting, well, excitingly scary.  Take it away, JJ . . .

Later, after dinner and a few treks upstairs, we adjourned to the Drink & Death Room, as Linda called the drawing room. We were sipping mint tea and avoiding eye contact, ensconced in those little Zen zones we’d become quite familiar with in the last twenty-four hours, when ghost-like booing started to flow softly around us like milkweed filaments propelled by a westerly wind.

“How Abbott and Costello,” Linda commented.

“That explains why Jensen didn’t show up for dinner,” Percival said with a roll of his eyes, jerking a thumb upward. “He’s hovering near a vent, doing a Casper impression.”

“It’s kinda lame,” Rey sniffed, pouring more tea into her cup.

“Why don’t we sneak up on him and give him a scare?” Linda suggested, standing. “I don’t want him thinking he can get away with this all night.”

“If the lot of us ‘sneak up on him’, we’d hardly catch him unawares,” Prunella pointed out dully.

Rey threw back her tea. “Let’s give it a try. If it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work. We’ll get back at him with our original plan.”

“Never mind the fact there have to be hidden rooms and walkways in an old place like this,” Linda added with a nod.

“Let’s split up,” I proposed. “Rey and Linda can take the west wing. Adwin, you and I will take the east. Prunella and Percival could-“

High-pitched staccato laughter echoed throughout the dwelling.

Linda snorted. “Geez, now we’ve got freaking Fred Flintstone’s Uncle Giggles running amok.”

Percival looked blank, but Adwin and I laughed.

“Okay guys, let’s do as my cousin suggested and take different parts of the house,” Rey said, stepping past.

I grabbed her forearm. “Let’s not make too much noise. We want to surprise him.”

“How’re we going to see anything? We can’t exactly go turning on lights if we’re aiming for the element of surprise,” Adwin pointed out.

“Let me get those flashlights we put back in the pantry earlier.” Percival strolled from the room; a man with a target.

I know the women would love it if you check out how they got interested in pursuing private-eye careers.  You can find Caper here:

Not sure who’s here the next day . . . it may be Rey. 

Day 1 . . . Not Done

Hi there.  Welcome to Day 1 of The Connecticut Corpse Caper promotion.

If you aren’t yet familiar with the private-eye trio from the Triple Threat Investigation Agency, you won’t know me.  I’m Adwin Byron Timmins, pastry chef and Jill Jocasta Fonne’s ex-beau—er, that’s JJ now, I guess (still not used to the name change).

Anyway, she asked if I’d do a quick post to let you know that The Connecticut Corpse Caper is F-R-E-E from Nov 8 – 12. 

Caper had several of us staying at JJ’s eccentric aunt’s haunted mansion for a week—anyone who could last the week would luck in re the inheritance.  If anyone left before then, their share would go into the pot. 

JJ, her mouthy cousin Rey, and Rey’s quiet best friend Linda got caught up in all the craziness—bodies dropping, weird sounds from behind thick walls, hidden passageways, and Fred the ghost—and started playing amateur sleuths.  They didn’t do too badly either and eventually tied up a lot of loose ends!  I got to adopt a cool cat and the women decided they just might want to go professional.

Maybe you’d like to check out the sleuthing adventures of my ex-girlfriend and her colleagues?  What have you got to lose . . . except a couple of action-packed, sometimes comic, hours?

Did I do okay, Jill—er, JJ? 

High-Fiving the Fifth

. . . and final day of The Connecticut Corpse Caper promotion.

Today, you have Rey again!

Caper, featuring my cousin JJ, my BFF Linda, and yours truly, was our first unofficial case (before we set up The Triple Threat Investigation Agency).  It launched our exciting, professional P.I. careers.

Friends and family members gather at Aunt Mat’s haunted mansion to collect a share of her not-too-shabby inheritance.  We have to remain a week to collect our share, but if anyone leaves early, his/her share is added to the pot.  We’re only there a few hours when one member of the group dies of unnatural causes.  Bodies soon start piling up.  While these murders are taking place, some pretty strange goings-on take place, like ghostly visits and ghoulish pranks.  The three of us put our heads together, search for clues, and succeed in solving the challenging/baffling case.

Promotion price?  F-R-E-E  (love it)

Promotion dates:  May 10 – May 14 2020

Stay well and be safe!

Double Duty

It’s Linda on post patrol today as well as Rey (maybe you saw her earlier post re The Connecticut Corpse Caper), so we’re pulling double duty.  Today marks the first day for the free/discount promotion re Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie featuring the three of us—Rey, JJ, and myself—pursuing our first official Triple Threat Investigation Agency case.

 Our first professional, paying assignment is to discover the secret of an elderly millionaire’s young wife.  Perhaps she’s having an affair?  Perhaps it’s something more diabolical.

It seems clear-cut: follow said young wife until we find what she’s up to.  What we soon find, though, is her body floating in the beautiful sapphire waters of a deserted beach.  The three of us endeavor to uncover the killer amid a cast of curious characters and do discover a sordid/illicit secret or three—not necessarily belonging to the deceased wife.  And while uncovering those secrets, we happen upon a few bodies.

On the road to piecing together the puzzle, we take a few detours—to the dodgy domains of drug pushers, informants, and gangs.  These folks are serious game plays . . . and play for serious keeps.

Going Forth with the Fourth

. . . day of promotion.

Hey, it’s Rey.  It’s the fourth day for the free/discount promotion re The Connecticut Corpse Caper featuring my cousin JJ, my BFF Linda, and yours truly.

Caper got us sporting sleuthing caps (or as Adwin, JJ’s now ex-beau said, “Snoop Sister” bonnets).  Look who’s laughing now, though?  We solved the case!  Not bad for a trio of snoopers, huh?

To give you a quick overview: a few friends and family members gathered at Aunt Mat’s haunted mansion to collect a share of her inheritance.  We had to remain a week to collect our share, but if anyone left early, his or her share would have been added to ours.  We’d barely just arrived when one member of the group died—and not naturally, the poor flabby slob.  More bodies soon started dropping.  And, man, were there some weird goings-on (like ghostly, ghoulish ones).  The three of us put our heads together, collected clues, and succeeded in finally solving the bizarre case.  Can you spell f-u-n?

Promotion price?  F-R-E-E  (if only everything were)

Promotion dates:  May 10 – May 14 2020

Be good and stay well—back tomorrow.

Three for Three

You’ve got Rey again.  Hey, how goes?  It’s the third day for the free/discount promotion re The Connecticut Corpse Caper featuring us three—my cousin JJ, my BFF Linda, and l’il ol’ lovely me.

 Caper was our first unofficial case—but it gave us a taste for private-eyeing, one we savored.

A bunch of us gathered at Aunt Mat’s supposedly haunted mansion to collect a share of her inheritance.  If we managed to stay a week, the money was ours; if anyone left early, their share would have been added to ours.  We were there but a few hours when one of the “guests” breathed his last—and not for any natural reason.  Then, the bodies started dropping (and I won’t mention all the weird happenings, including a ghost named Fred).  The three of us started checking for clues and succeeded in finding a few.  Needless to say, we finally figured out who the culprit was.  We made for good amateur sleuths . . . and now make for great P.I.s!

Promotion price?  F-R-E-E  (I just love that word)

Promotion dates:  May 10 – May 14 2020

Continue to stay healthy and safe—back tomorrow.

Another Day, Another Plug

Hey, it’s Rey again.  It’s the second day for the free/discount promotion re The Connecticut Corpse Caper.

Caper was our first unofficial case.  Cousin Jilly (JJ), my BFF Linda, and I caught the private-eye bug solving a trying (bizarre) series of murders at our Aunt Mat’s haunted mansion.

A bunch of us were there to collect a share of her inheritance.  We had to stay a week and if anyone bailed out, their share went into the pot.  Well, we weren’t even there half-a-day when someone breathed his last, thanks to a little help (can you spell p-o-i-s-o-n?).  The three of us decided to do some snooping, er, sleuthing, and with a lot of trial and error, solved the “case”.

Promotion price?  F-R-E-E  (like, how much better can it get?)

Promotion dates:  May 10 – May 14 2020

Continue to be well—and see you all tomorrow.

Our First Caper

Hey, it’s Rey.  I’m taking over the The Connecticut Corpse Caper promo posts; Linda and JJ will do the others.

 So-o, let me give you a brief rundown on The Connecticut Corpse Caper—our first caper, er, case (unofficial, of course). It  launched our professional P.I. careers, mostly thanks to me (it was my idea, after all).  Anyway, it is available for a discount / free promotion beginning today, hooray!  That’s May 10th for those not following calendars.

How did I get the idea?  Blame it on a crazy week at eccentric Aunt Mat’s haunted mansion.  A number of folks can inherit a nice bit of money (JJ and me included) if we stay the course.  If one decides to leave, the inheritance is divided between those who remain.  Before we know it, someone dies at dinner . . . and then a few more bodies drop and weird shenanigans occur.  We put on amateur sleuth hats and solve the crazy caper.

♦  Promotion price?  F-R-E-E  (ya can’t beat that)

♦  Promotion dates:  May 10 – May 14 2020

Take care—see ya again tomorrow!
