MABG Front Cover

“[An] entertaining debut … Readers will find more substance here than in most cozies.” (Publishers Weekly)

“This promising series debut should intrigue anyone who enjoys biblio crime.” (Booklist)

“The characters in this story are fascinating, and for the humor that the author delivers, there is definitely a dark side to go with it.” (Suspense Magazine)

“The amateur sleuth’s pseudo-investigative skills and her interactions with a cast of well-drawn, small-town characters reveal a deception that ultimately coalesces into a study of human nature and the limits of perception.” (Kathleen Gerard, ShelfAwareness blog)

My debut mystery, Murder at the Book Group, came out December 30, 2014 from Simon & Schuster. It features Hazel Rose, a romance writer and seeker of justice.

I call it cozy with an edge!
