On the fourth day of Christmas,

In Mercy, Mississippi….

Four suspects lying,

Three sleuths a sleuthing

Two clues a hiding

And a very, very dead body.

It’s the Christmas season in Mercy, Mississippi. But things are far from jolly.

For Vlad Templeton the sleepy little town where he spent his childhood provides the perfect place to conduct his state funded sleep study. But when the local bank manager, who was participating in the study, is found dead on his doorstep, is it a set up…or is Vlad somehow involved?

But, when someone makes an attempt on Lily Gayle’s and Dixie’s life, the two realize they better move fast….or they might end up sleeping forever.  (Amazon)

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  I love all the genteel Southern women in this…

Cherry Cake and a Cadaver

Lily Gayle Lambert, Book #2

Susan Boles

5 Stars

34520267Synopsis:

Lily Gayle and the gang set out to find a killer after local baker Luxen Natolovich is found dead hours before the grand opening weekend at the new Bed and Breakfast in town, Midnight Dragonfly.

As Lily Gayle deciphers the clues around Luxen’s death she uncovers a conspiracy of lies and half truths that could very well be tied to a refugee camp in Mississippi during World War II.

The deeper Lily Gayle digs the deeper the conspiracy runs and the closer she comes to being the killer’s next victim. (Goodreads)

Review:

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Lily Gayle is smart, sassy and a well bred Southern woman.  She also is as curious as a cat and cannot help getting into trouble with her snooping.  So when the local baker is killed…

Mini Computer = Easier Writing on the Road

I bought this Dell computer last Friday afternoon. I was looking for a computer that I could just put in my purse and go, but still be able to write books, short stories, etc. when I’m on the road. I am now in love with this one! It also caDell Inspiron 2016 Model 11.6-inch HD Laptop Premium High Performance | Intel Dual-Core | 2GB RAM | 32GB SSD | Bluetooth | WiFi | Windows 10 (Blue)me with a free 1-year subscription to Office 365.

I bought it, rushed home, ripped it out of the packaging and fired it up. I created a home group in my big computer and hooked them together. And, just like MAGIC, when I was out of town over the weekend, I was able to pull this nice little mini computer out of my purse and do some writing. No muss. No fuss. SO much easier than lugging the big 17 inch screen laptop around. This mini me computer weighs next to nothing! If you’re looking to downsize, this would be a great choice!! This little guy is less than 12 inches wide which made it SO easy to slip into the side pocket of my purse.

Here is it right next to a paperback copy of Death of a Wolfman so you can get a really good idea of the size of it. It did take me a minute to get used to the smaller keyboard, but it was so worth it! What do you think?

Using Canva to Create

I created this promotional piece using Canva.com. It’s a pretty good tool for creating your own promotional pieces. I’m not the most tech savvy person in the world and I think this one looks pretty good. What do you think? Do any of you use this tool? This is from DEATH OF A WOLFMAN and comes from a scene where Lily Gayle is at It’ll Grow Back, the hair salon belonging to her best friend, Dixie. As you can see from the promo, the girls are up to some gossip about the goings on in town.death-of-a-wolfman-snippetcover-pinterest
