Mystery Cozy

From award winning author Maria Grazia Swan comes a story of suspense, romance, and one mischievous cat...

How does a domestic black cat from Southern California become a stowaway and end up in Phoenix Arizona? That’s what Lella York wants to know as she crosses the desert, pedal to the metal, to bring her cat, Flash, back home. But something about a full desert moon bewitches Lella into staying in Arizona longer than she planned and playing house with the sexy Detective Lawrence Devin who is in Arizona as a special witness for an old murder case. The desert is a land of extremes so it’s no surprise that Lella and Larry brave the heat to chase after a cold case. Throw in a hint of Russian mafia, some attractive flight attendants, and a ferret named Lucy, and Lella realizes what a dangerous place the desert can be under a full moon.

I have no idea but I would love to see it set at Yellowstone Natl Park or Montana in the mountains.

Anywhere would be great to read, but California's Avenue of the Giants would be intriguing.

The Mohave desert.

I would say, Maria, to keep your settings still in the Arizona you love, but maybe, just maybe, up in the White Mountain area--where the Phoenicians go to cool off. I'm suggesting Heber-Overgaard or Show Low, Arizona.

How about Virginia

Bangkok, Thailand, a very interesting place. Of course it's been
almost 40 years since we were there.
Nancy Luebke 8:56pm June 30, 2015)

One of the awesome places in Arizona.

How about the old F. Scott Fitzgerald home in St. Paul,
"The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the three-story row
house on Summit Avenue was listed for sale Tuesday. The
listed price is $665,000."

So many places to choose.

Thanks for a great post.

I'll double-guess Rijeka or Ljubllana, Slovenia-- talk about underexploited
locales that are naturals for an Italian!
