Writing the Arizona Summers Mysteries is fun!

The Wedding Cake Murder
An Arizona Summers Mystery book 1

I’m having a great time writing the Arizona Summers Mysteries.

Arizona is a single, thirty something woman with bright red hair and a skinny body. She owns Moonstone Lake Cafe and Sunday Brunch, the oldest family owned restaurant in the state.

Arizona’s real love is solving crimes. The old police chief loved for her to help. When the new police chief took over, he made it clear she should run her restaurant and he would do the crime fighting.

Little did he know that Arizona knew everyone in town and they all confided in her. It didn’t take him long to realize she gathered more information in an average day in the cafe than he could in a week of sleuthing.

Then there is Emma, Arizona’s adopted mother who sometimes requires more babysitting than an average five year old.

Aunt Sandra, Emma’s sister and Arizona’s best friend, is a lovely widow who brightens up the town with her independence and smiling personality.

Nutmeg is a stray dog who adopted Arizona and made it her life’s work to keep her mistress well and safe. Nutmeg is most likely the world’s smartest and most intuitive dog. She, more often than not, figures out what is going on before anyone else.

Book one: The Wedding Cake Murder hit #1 is the Amazon Kindle store. Book two: The High Steaks Murder is also an Amazon Best seller and book three

Bonfires, Barbeques and Bodies will be released on April 22. Order yours today while they are on pre-order for .99
