Mud Pie, a Delightful Free Novel

Oh boy, I  have another free book to recommend. It’s Mud Pie, written by Emma Lee Dole. It’s cute. It’s fun. And it’s a decidedly complicated mystery. I could not figure out who “dun” it  until the very last minute, and I read a LOT of mysteries.

It’s set in England, near Manchester, and features a young cook, Lannie Herron, being chased by an evil bunch of young thugs. They want to kill her for exposing their drug dealing. She is fleeing in hopes of escaping their retribution.

(Mud Pie, by the way, is a dessert, although I can’t really describe it since I’ve never had it. But needless to say, Lannie makes a great one.)

So there she is working in some small pub, praying to escape detection and death. Who said survival was easy?

The e-book is an engaging read full of rugby players, flirtations, and narrow escapes. I truly enjoyed it, and since it ended with her future not fully spelled out, I suggest Dole use this as the first  book in a series of Lannie adventures. I’d certainly read them for whatever that’s worth.

Mud Pie is available FREE for Nook, iTunes, and Kobo. I downloaded my copy at Smashwords.

I cannot end this post without also mentioning Widowmere, which is also written by Emma Lee Dole, and is also FREE. I read it. I loved it. But this book is heavy on description which bothers me not a whit. In fact, I reveled in the language used to tell this story. This tale features an artist as a protagonist who is as far removed from Lannie as possible. She’s sensitive, observant, romantic, and charming.

Widowmere begins when a beautiful young woman fills her pockets with pebbles and walks into the lake as the artist is painting the scene. It is more of a  literary mystery, but that bothered me not at all. This book is also available from the above outlets. Enjoy!

Cover Reveal for Latest Hetty Fox Book

murder-3A Rainy Day Murder is racing toward a conclusion.

In this book, Hetty Fox is off to Chicago to visit an old friend. It’s a holiday she’s been anticipating for some time,  but little goes to plan. Andrew fails to follow orders. Blackie refuses to play nice with the kids. And a corpse, no matter where it’s found, almost never improves an outing.

Meanwhile, feeling a bit out of her element in the big city, Hetty doubts she’ll be able to help police solve this crime. After all hunting a murderer in Chicago is hardly like following clues and gossip in a small town. But  when police turn their attention to the victim’s grown children, Hetty feels compelled to try to sort out the killing, which leads her to one of the biggest challenges of her detecting life.
