In this debut almost-cozy mystery series novel, Charlie Parker, accountant and partner in an Albuquerque private investigation firm, is visited by her old school friend, Stacy North. Stacy’s Rolex watch is missing and she begs Charlie to help locate it before her husband finds out. Things are complicated by the fact that Stacy had been seeing another man, Gary Detweiller, and he’s the one she suspects of having stolen the watch. With a little detective work, Charlie and her sidekick dog, Rusty, retrieve the missing watch and all should be well. But three days later, Detweiller is murdered. All eyes turn to Stacy as the prime suspect.

Once again, Stacy begs Charlie’s help in proving her innocence. As she begins to ask questions, Charlie learns that Detweiller’s life was not as simple as first perceived and that any number of people had grievances against him. And before she can pinpoint the killer, her own life is in danger as well.

Includes new foreword from the author upon the 20th anniversary of first publication of this ongoing mystery series first title.

The first three Pineapple Port Mysteries – Murder, romance & laughs strike a Florida retirement community full of characters you’ll never forget! The twist: The resident ace detective is only twenty-six.

Book One: Pineapple Lies
Growing up in one of Florida’s fifty-five plus communities, Charlotte never expected life to be wild. Golf cart racing with her surrogate mothers Mariska and Darla was about as nutty as life got…until she found the hot pawnbroker’s mom buried in her backyard.
Talk about making a lousy first impression.
Armed with nothing but her wits, Pineapple Port’s questionable cast of characters and a growingcrush, Charlotte is determined to solve the mystery of Declan’s mother’s murder.
Hey, at least this guy’s skeletons aren’t in his closet.

Book Two: Pineapple Mystery Box
When a giant inflatable Halloween witch goes missing in the Pineapple Port retirement community, Charlotte’s eager to nab the culprit. Before she can lift a fingerprint, someone threatens to kill a new neighbor who looks like an adorable Pomeranian but possesses a disturbing talent for revenge. Moments later, a stranger demands the return of a mysterious wooden box… or else.
Charlotte’s boyfriend, Declan, isn’t having a great morning either. His calculating ex-girlfriend has returned to claim she’s the rightful owner of his pawn shop. She’s livid he’s found a new lady, too.
Eh. Things could be worse. At least Charlotte doesn’t know that a mojito-swilling killer who fed his grandmother to a cat is on his way to Pineapple Port…

Book Three: Pineapple Puzzles
The infamous Puzzle Killer returns to Charity, Florida, in search of a rival murderer, and when two serial killers battle, Charlotte, Declan, Seamus and a naked cat find themselves on the chopping block!

The director of the University Press was often characterized as a man who needed killing. The Press’s authors and employees certainly wouldn’t disagree–even Peter the Gray, the office cat, detested him.

#Review “Do Bugs Wear Shoes? And Other Silly Questions (Kids Fact Book)” by Addie Broussard, Anthony Puttee

Do Bugs Wear Shoes 3D

~~~

5/5 Stars!

You don’t have to have an interest in entomology—or even like bugs—to get a big kick out of Do Bugs Wear Shoes?

Quality, color photographs and concise, easy to understand text will make this book a hit with the whole family.

The silly questions contained in Do Bugs Wear Shoes? not only inform and educate but can lead to more interest and discussion on the insect world and beyond.

I live in Arizona where finding scorpions in the sink or tub is not a rare occurrence and I learned quite a bit from this book. (Although I’m sure I’ll still freak out whenever I see one!)

I reviewed a kindle copy of Do Bugs Wear Shoes? and while the recommended age is 6 and up, my four-year-old grandnephew is getting a print copy for Christmas. It’s never too early for children to learn and being more informed and aware could only help assuage some of the fear of bugs we all grow up with.

I just hope he doesn’t ask me to read it to him! (And I’m not putting crickets in my smoothie!) HA!

Enjoy!
