New Release: Memory Makers, A Medical Mystery by Debbie De Louise

I’m excited to announce the release of my new novel, Memory Makers.(link: http://mybook.to/memorymakers) This book is currently available as an eBook and free on Kindle Unlimited. It’s also in paperback and other editions will be forthcoming.

Twenty-five years ago, Lauren Phelps and her sister Patty were kidnapped from their backyard on Long Island. Lauren escaped her captor, but Patty was killed.

Ever since, Lauren has suffered from nightmares of the “Shadow Man.” Trying to recall his face and avenge her sister’s murder, Lauren, now a kidnapping investigator, enrolls in a clinical trial for a new memory drug.

At the offices of Memory Makers in California, she receives the injections of the Memory Makers’ serum, and begins to experience flashbacks of repressed memories. Along with the flashbacks, she receives threats from an anonymous source that point back to her childhood trauma.

Soon, Lauren becomes involved with a fellow trial participant who seeks to recall his own traumatic past. But can Lauren discover the identity of the “Shadow Man” before history repeats itself?

EXCERPT

I leaned back, closed my eyes against the blaring lights of the jail cell-sized room and tried to answer Dr. Murray’s questions about that summer day twenty-five years ago. Concentrating on the images that flickered in my mind, I saw my five-year-old sister and me in a sandbox, a faceless man entering our backyard gate. 

 “Don’t think too hard, Lauren. Let the memories come.” The doctor’s voice persisted, a mantra in my head. 

I struggled to summon up the rest of the scene.  “Patty and I are in our sandbox and there’s a man, but . . . I’m sorry, Dr. Murray. I can’t see his face.” I opened my eyes. My heart was pounding, the same reaction I had each night after my dreams of the “Shadow Man” that had haunted me since childhood.

About In An Instant

In An Instant
Thriller/Women’s Fiction
Publisher: Lake Union Publishing (March 1, 2020)
Paperback: 331 pages
ISBN-10: 1542006589
ISBN-13: 978-1542006583

A deeply moving story of carrying on even when it seems impossible.

Life is over in an instant for sixteen-year-old Finn Miller when a devastating car accident tumbles her and ten others over the side of a mountain. Suspended between worlds, she watches helplessly as those she loves struggle to survive.

I make impossible choices, decisions that leave the survivors tormented with grief and regret. Unable to let go, Finn keeps vigil as they struggle to reclaim their shattered lives. Jack, her father, who seeks vengeance against the one person he can blame other than himself; her best friend, Mo, who bravely searches for the truth as the story of their survival is rewritten; her sister Chloe, who knows Finn lingers and yearns to join her; and her mother, Ann, who saved them all but is haunted by her decisions. Finn needs to move on, but how can she with her family still in pieces?

Heartrending yet ultimately redemptive, In an Instant is a story about the power of love, the meaning of family, and carrying on…even when it seems impossible.

Guest Post and Blog Tour for Glitter, Glam and Contraband, A Delanie Fitzgerald Mystery by Heather Weidner

A Playlist for Glitter, Glam, and Contraband

by Heather Weidner

Thank you so much for letting me visit today. Glitter, Glam, and Contraband is the third novel in my Delanie Fitzgerald mystery series. She is my sassy private investigator who zips around Central Virginia in her black Mustang (usually with the radio blaring).

I love music. It has always been a huge part of my life, and I have playlists for reading, writing, editing, and revising. Music is always on at home or work. (As I write this, Bon Jovi is blasting on my computer speakers.) I love all kinds of genres, but I seem to gravitate back to songs from the Big ‘80s. Songs from my high school and college days will always be my favorites. And that era plays a huge role in the first novel in my series, Secret Lives and Private Eyes.

Private investigator, Delanie Fitzgerald, and her computer hacker partner, Duncan Reynolds, are back for more sleuthing in Glitter, Glam and Contraband. In this fast-paced mystery, the Falcon Investigations team is hired to find out who is stealing from the talent at a local drag show. Delanie gets more than she bargains for and a few makeup tips in the process. Meanwhile, a mysterious sound in the ceiling of her office vexes Delanie. She uses her sleuthing skills to track down the source and uncover a creepy contraband operation.

Glitter, Glam, and Contraband features a strong female sleuth with a knack for getting herself in and out of humorous situations like helping sleezy strip club owner, Chaz Smith on his quest to become Richmond’s next mayor, tracking down missing reptiles, and uncovering hidden valuables from a 100-year-old crime with a Poe connection.

So here’s my playlist for Glitter, Glam, and Contraband. These songs make me think of Delanie, her spunky spirit, her nose for trouble, and of course, her beloved Mustang.

  1. Adam Ant’s “Goody Two Shoes”
  2. Robbin Thompson’s “Candy Apple Red”
  3. Kelly Pickler’s “Red High Heels”
  4. The Weather Girls “It’s Raining Men”
  5. Rachel Platten’s “Fight Song”
  6. Robbin Thompson’s “Sweet Virginia Breeze”
  7. Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark”
  8. Jake Owens’s “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”
  9. Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”
  10. The Beach Boys’ “Fun, Fun, Fun”
  11. Wilson Pickett’s “Mustang Sally”
  12. Toby Keith’s “Whiskey Girl”
  13. Rascal Flatts’s “Fast Cars and Freedom”
  14. Florida Georgia Line’s “Cruise”
  15. Rascal Flatts’s “Life is a Highway”
  16. Mark Wills’s “Nineteen Something”
  17. Bowling for Soup’s “1985”
  18. And of course, Hall and Oates’s “Private Eyes”

Music is such a big part of our lives. We remember lyrics from songs that were popular ages ago, and it invokes a variety of emotions. This list makes me think of my sassy character and the adventures she has as she tries to track down thieves and smugglers.

Spotlight for Secrets and Lies, A Claire Callahan Mystery, by P.H. Turner

Secrets and Lies: A Claire Callahan Mystery
by P.H. Turner

About Secrets and Lies


Secrets and Lies: A Claire Callahan Mystery
Private Investigator Mystery
2nd in Series
Summit Peak Publishing (September 23, 2019)
Paperback: 270 pages
ISBN-10: 1695142470
ISBN-13: 978-1695142473
Digital ASIN: B07Y8QPRZ6

Shot to death in his home, Morgan Tutwiler leaves behind a multimillion-dollar business and a daughter who hasn’t spoken to him in years. And she isn’t alone in wanting him dead. Plenty of people wanted the most hated man in Denver dead in P. H. Turner’s latest novel in the Claire Callahan series.

Reminiscent of the finest gumshoe storytelling, Secrets and Lies, would not be complete without Turner’s signature quirky characters and inventive plot.

Excerpt from Chapter 2 of Secrets and Lies:

Claire Callahan typed the last words of the last paragraph in her final report, tears threatening. This child custody case was worse than typical – to her, they were all bad—and tore Claire’s heart out. She clicked Send without even bothering to proofread it like she usually did. All she wanted was to go home and watch Netflix and eat leftover pizza.

She shut down her computer and sprinted to the elevator to the garage.

As a young and eager private investigator for the prestigious law firm of Marsh and Whitley, sometimes the job broke her heart, sometimes it put her in danger, sometimes it frustrated her . . . but it never bored her. That would be a deal breaker.

Claire unlocked Bug, mentally crossed her fingers hoping he would start and pulled out of the parking garage. Bug couldn’t do better than to putter-put in the slow lane of the Interstate, but the poor thing was over twenty years old. In car-years, that was like a hundred. He had a new set of tires and a shiny new black paint job, but he needed a new motor, and his asthmatic heater was going to have to be replaced before the Denver winter set in.

She did her best to ignore the rusted-out holes in the passenger side floorboards—holes big enough to see the asphalt whiz by on a sunny day. The little guy needed more restoration than she had money.

Rafe accused her of being nuts for pouring money into the “heap,” but Bug was nearly a classic. And besides, a car payment wasn’t in the budget.

Detective Rafe Brewster shared the same goal she had: To see that justice was done.

They had nearly ruined a perfectly good working relationship by having a dinner date.

Fortunately, by the time the bill arrived, they came to their senses, went Dutch, and agreed the evening had been too awkward to ever bring up again.

About P.H. Turner

P.H. Turner writes mystery and suspense novels set in the mountains and canyons of the West where she grew up and spent most of her working life. Pat worked in broadcast journalism on both coasts, the Midwest, and the Rocky Mountains. With roots to a Texas farm homesteaded in the 1850s, she’s returned to live within miles of the old farm.

Pat is a member of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America.

Book Review: By Book or By Crook, Lighthouse Library Mystery #1, by Eva Gates

I was attracted to this series and wanted to start with the first book because it features a lighthouse library and a cat, both of which, as a librarian and cat lover, I’m interested in. Although the lighthouse in this mystery is fictional, it’s based on a real lighthouse, Bodie Island Lighthouse, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The story involves a murder and subsequent theft of rare Jane Austen novels. Are the two connected?

The main character, Lucy the librarian who has escaped an unhappy relationship and life in Boston to take a job at the lighthouse library, is well-developed, as are the other characters. I also enjoyed the role that the cat, Charles, played in the book. Readers who like cozy mysteries, libraries, and cats will enjoy this series. A preview to the next edition is included in the back and looks just as good as the first.

Review of River Bones by Mary Deal

Purchase Link: https://amzn.to/2Mdk9Rm

5-star Review:

If you like mystery thrillers, you should enjoy this book. At one point, I felt goose bumps as Ms. Deal brought the reader into the mind of a serial killer. I liked the fact that her protagonist, Sara, had figured out who the murderer was but didn’t reveal it until the story’s climax. This had me sitting on edge. I also liked the romance subplot between Sara and Huxley. I found the ending satisfying and well executed. I also enjoyed learning about the Sacramento Delta area of which I was unfamiliar. I will definitely read more books by this talented author and highly recommend this one.

ASIN: B07Q6YSTPN

A clever thief with a sinister calling card has invaded Braxton campus. A string of jewelry thefts continues to puzzle the sheriff, given they’re remarkably similar to an unsolved eight-year-old case, back when Gabriel vanished one stormy night.

When a missing ruby, and a body, are discovered at the campus, Kellan must investigate the killer’s motive to protect his brother. As if the latest murder isn’t enough to keep him busy, Kellan partners with April to end the Castigliano and Vargas crime family feud. What really happened to Francesca while all those postcards showed up in Braxton?

The mafia world is more calculating than Kellan realized. If he wants to move forward, he’ll have to make a few ruthless sacrifices. And as the summer heat begins to settle in Wharton County, a couple more surprises are also in store.

About the Author

James is my given name, but most folks call me Jay. I live in New York City, grew up on Long Island, and graduated from Moravian College. I spent fifteen years building a technology career in the retail, sports, media, and entertainment industries. I enjoyed my job, but a passion for books and stories had been missing for far too long. I’m a voracious reader in my favorite genres (thriller, suspense, contemporary, mystery, and historical fiction), as books transport me to a different world where I can immerse myself in so many fantastic cultures and places. I’m an avid genealogist who hopes to visit all the German, Scottish, Irish, and British villages my ancestors emigrated from in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Writing has been a part of my life as much as my heart, my mind, and my body. I decided to pursue my passion by dusting off the creativity inside my head and drafting outlines for several novels. I quickly realized I was back in my element growing happier and more excited with life each day. My goal in writing is to connect with readers who want to be part of great stories and who enjoy interacting with authors. To get a strong picture of who I am, check out my author website or my blog. It’s full of humor and eccentricity, sharing connections with everyone I follow—all in the hope of building a network of friends across the world.

When I completed the first book, Watching Glass Shatter, I knew I’d stumbled upon my passion again, suddenly dreaming up characters, plots, and settings all day long. I chose my second novel, Father Figure, through a poll on my blog where I let everyone vote for their favorite plot and character summaries. It is with my third book, Academic Curveball, the first in the Braxton Campus Mysteries, where I immersed myself in a college campus full of so much activity, I could hardly stop thinking about new murder scenes or character relationships to finish writing the current story. Come join in the fun!

Community Craft proprietor Sammy Kane suspects that a tantalizing thread links the deaths of her best friend and a bestselling author. But can she weave together the clues?

Samantha “Sammy” Kane is settling into her new life in idyllic Heartsford, Wisconsin, running her late friend Kate Allen’s craft shop, Community Craft when one early June day, bestselling crochet author Jane Johnson visits Heartsford. Captivated by Community Craft, Jane devotes a chapter in her new book, Behind the Seams, to the store. Sammy is honored, though satisfaction quickly turns to shock when she finds Jane strangled to death—her cold hands clutching a copy of her most recently published book, with the words “THE END” raggedly scratched into the cover.

Heavens to Etsy! Not only must Sammy contend with the author’s inauspicious demise, she has to untie some knotty details from her own past. It turns out Kate’s death was not what it seemed, and instead somehow hooked to Jane Johnson’s demise. Handsome Detective Liam Nash is on the “skein”, more than happy to see the shop owner again, if less than enamored by her sleuthing interventions. But this was Sammy’s best friend—she has to know.

Fortunately, Sammy has a “lace” in the hole. As a child, she formed the S.H.E. detective team with her cousin, Heidi, and her sister, Ellie. Having already reconstituted their partnership, the S.H.E. team searches for a pattern behind the latest death. As the case starts to unravel, will Sammy and team be able to sidestep Liam quick enough to stitch together the clues?
