Mystery Woman Sleuth
Local bed and breakfast owner Kate McGillicutty and
Waterfield Police Chief Wayne Rasmussen are finally tying
the knot. They've asked Avery and her boyfriend, Derek, to
renovate an old carriage house behind the B&B. It's a
daunting task, but Avery plans on remaking the relic into
a romantic Parisian-style retreat.
But the course of true love--and home repair--rarely runs
smooth. As proven when Avery stumbles across a lifeless
body in the carriage house. And now, Avery's to-do list
reads: find wallpaperâ€¦lay insulationâ€¦solve murder!

Re: Plaster And Poison
That was very interesting and I already have my book on my pile of books to read. I can't wait to read how the mystery gets connected to the crime.

Crazy weird and you are right...who would believe it! Very interesting!!!

Thanks, everyone! It's a really freaky coincidence, which makes for a very interesting backstory the next time I have to go up front of a group and talk about my books! Don't forget to go enter the drawing for a free copy of the book over on BooksOnTheHouse.com!

I am a native Texan, but don't recall ever hearing about a Chandler, Texas. I am going to check that out. The story sounds very intriguing.

I love light mysteries such as Janet Evanovich.

Diane, me too!

Wow! What a strange coincidence. I have not read any of your Do-It-Yourself Home Renovation mysteries, but now I have to. They sound great.

How great for you and your story that
this name was there and popped out
at you. Not only that, but his death
was a murder. As you said, it is
enough to give you chills. I hope you
do find out more details about him.

That definitely is chilling. I've never had that kind of experience, but lately I've had several weird things happen to me especially concerning reading. Without conscious thought, at least, I've read 3 books with the word "pursuit" in the title this past year, 2 in one week; 2 books that I read one after the other had characters with the same somewhat obscure profession; and 2 others I read one after the other had almost exactly the same plot line. Not chilling exactly, but still weird. Maybe I've just never been conscious of these coincidences before.
