Dolled Up For Murder  

 

No cover picture available

 

Author: Deb Baker

Publisher: Deb Baker, Smashwords

 

"Caroline Birch. Put her away." The message was clutched in the fist of a destitute former doll collector found dead at the bottom of a cliff with a valuable French doll's parasol in her pocket. And the person seen fleeing the crime scene fits Caroline's description. But Gretchen Birch knows her mother is innocent. The problem is, Caroline has disappeared - and she's left an urgent warning that Gretchen is in danger, too.

A Luring Murder  

 

Author:  Stacy verdict Case

Publisher: Smashwords

 
 
The irreverent detective is back, and this time she’s on vacation. God help us all. St. Paul, Minnesota Homicide Detective Catherine O’Brien and her loving husband Gavin are vacationing on one of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes. When a local is murdered Catherine is tapped to help the small town Sheriff until the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension arrives to take over the investigation. Catherine is surprised when her partner Louise and Diggs the forensic pathologist, whose crush on Louise is only dwarfed by his own genius, shows up to assist instead of the BCA. Before long Catherine and Louise discover this sleepy little town has a dark side hidden beneath its placid lake charms. Somewhere in the tangle of cheating and deception is a motive for murder.

Still using that iPad, huh, A3A?  I notice the autocorrect nailed you on the author's middle name. :smileyhappy:

You are right. I was busy attaching a book description, B&N's website did not provide one, that I missed it. Thanks.

I downloaded it and am currently reading it.  It clearly was never proof-read, not even by the author.  Editing errors abound, and the dialog is amateurish. 

 

After I finish reading it (if I do finish reading it), I might make another attempt to post a "Reader Review" on the B&N Web site.  I have not been able to successfully post such a review for a couple of months.

"No Tears for the Fallen"

"No Tears for the Fallen" -----------------Author and Publisher: Steve Bailey------------- http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/no-tears-for-the-fallen-steve-bailey/1113743693?ean=2940045023214 -------------------------------------------------------------------- One sunny afternoon, Nick Price took a stroll through Lumpini Park in Bangkok with his family and friends. At some stage, a joke was cracked, he laughed and placed a hand, intimately, on a young man's shoulder. The event was unremarkable, except that twenty years later a witness testifies that the young man had been Khun Sa, the legendary drug lord from the Golden Triangle. Set against the backdrop of civil unrest in Bangkok in May 1992, DCI Jack Magee visits Thailand to explore Nick Price's murky past in the hope of identifying Khun Sa, unaware that he has been set up by the intelligence services like a goat to catch a tiger.
