Freebie this week!

In honor of the coming release of Book 3 of my Cleopatra Jones mystery series on Sept. 11, I've put the first book up for FREE on Kindle this week. That's right, IN FOR A PENNY, is just two clicks away from being on your Kindle or kindle-app device.

I'd be remiss if I didn't post the buy link, so here it is:

  Some review snips to whet your appetite: 

"an amusing addition to the cozy ranks" Kirkus

"the story takes some unexpected and dangerous turns as it builds to a satisfying conclusion" Publishers Weekly

“Reading a Cleopatra Jones mystery is a nice way to spend an afternoon. This lighthearted story has a dash of romance and a lot of humor. Cleo is a delightful character, and her wacky family and friends add to the enjoyment.” Romantic Times

"Fans will enjoy this fun mystery" Harriet Klausner

Here's the blurb from the book:

Amateur sleuth Cleopatra Jones of rural Hogan’s Glen, Maryland faces an unwanted hazard when she skulls her golf ball across the number six green and it lands in the inseam of a very dead banker. Though the victim is a longtime friend of Cleo’s, his ongoing dispute with Cleo’s best friend and golfing partner, Jonette, is public knowledge. When the police key in on Jonette as the prime suspect, Cleo sets out to find the real killer.

Amidst the fun of wacky meals, dueling daughters, Mama’s heart problem, lovesick Saint Bernards, a sexy golf pro, a repentant ex-husband and a host of murder suspects, Cleo does what she does best. With her trusty spreadsheets and logical accountant’s brain, she organizes the information and ferrets out a crazed killer.

Set against the lush splendor of mid-Atlantic springtime, this fun-packed mystery with a dash of romance will keep you turning the pages to see what happens next.
