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!

Goodreads . . . Good Times . . . Good Friends

One of the best ways to get your books noticed is to have them on a Goodreads list (of which there are a few).

WPgoodreads1

The rules, I understand, are as follows:

♦  You cannot add or vote for your own book (makes sense). Someone else has to add it for you.    ♦  You must list the book you’re voting for on one of your shelves (“Read” or “Want to Read”).    ♦  You can vote for multiple books, as well as prioritize them.

I’ve come across many writers requesting votes for their masterworks so that they may move higher in ranking.  I get that and am more than happy to help by offering a vote or two or twenty.

Confession: me, myself and I have never done that (we’re challenged when it comes to self-promotion, but have always really wanted to give it a go).  WPgoodreads3

A dear blogger-writer friend, Jina S Bazzar added Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie—the 2nd in the Triple Threat Investigation Agency series—on the Detective List.  How cool and sweet is that?  Thank you, Jina!

Journeys, a Facebook writing community, has “Shameless Saturday Promotion”  . . . I’m borrowing the idea and shamelessly promoting myself on this fine October Saturday.  Won’t you please vote for Hula by going to Goodreads?  I’m # 493.

She’s also the author of Heir of Ashes and Heir of Doom, which feature the feisty Roxanne Fosch, a young fee hybrid who escaped a government research facility after spending nine years as a captive.  I won’t reveal more.  You’ll have to read the exciting books to see what transpires!
