Genre Cozy Mystery
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13
Mortician Lily Reynolds is used to seeing bodies, but not the type murdered in her own funeral home. As Detective James Rivers zeroes in on her as the town’s number one suspect she must rise above the accusations and rumors to solve the case herself while keeping her attraction to the troubled detective at bay.
James has a past. The last time he let someone into his life she wound up dead. Vowing never to let that happen again he has sworn off dating for good. Until he meets Lily. In his gut he knows she’s not the murderer but pressure to solve the case puts him on the wrong trail while he struggles to keep Lily off the case.
Can she solve the case on her own or will their scandalous romance get in the way of proving her innocence?
Is it true:
this is your first book?
this book is part of a series?
Potentially. I have started a sequel but we’ll see how it goes.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Not while writing it but definitely while editing it.
you did research for this book?
True. I have no experience in the business of funeral homes or in mortuary science.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Nope. All human.
this book has more than one genre?
True. It’s a cozy because I have an amateur sleuth but there’s a clear romance going on between the two main characters.
you speak more than one language?
you grew up where you live now?
True! But that’s only because I moved back to where I grew up recently.
you love to read?
True! It’s a true passion but it’s hard to find the time to lose myself in a book these days.
you are never late?
True! Being late makes me anxious.
you love pizza?
False. With young children in the house it’s always a staple and I’m kind of over it.
you love sushi?
you have a pet?
True. I have 2 cats who are sisters, a calico and a torti. Their names are Aurora and Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty—one of my favorite classic Disney movies.
