Trick or Treat Hop

Happy Halloween! I've joined nine other mystery authors for a special "no-trick just treats" Facebook hop for our readers running from October 19 through Halloween! Each Facebook page will explain that author's "treat" and how to get it! And we have an overall giveaway using Rafflecopter where you can win a $100 gift certificate!

For my stop on the Halloween express, I've got five treats! Keep reading!

#1 Treat

My Cherry Tucker Mystery #3, HIJACK IN ABSTRACT, takes place in the small town of Halo, Georgia, right around this time of year. November 4th is the book's 5th anniversary. The second edition is set to release with a new cover and new bonus material!

You are the first to see the second edition cover!

Hijack in Abstract

From The Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Larissa Reinhart, the third book in the sassy, Southern, amateur sleuthing Cherry Tucker cozy mystery series. A 2014 Georgia Author of the Year and Silver Falchion nominee and A Night Owl Reviews Top Pick.

“The fast-paced plot careens through small-town politics and deadly rivalries, with zany side trips through art-world shenanigans and romantic hijinx. Like front-porch lemonade, Reinhart’s cast of characters offers a perfect balance of tart and sweet.” – Sophie Littlefield, Bestselling Author of A Bad Day for Sorry

With a classical series sold and a portrait commissioned, Cherry Tucker’s art career is in Georgia overdrive. But when the sheriff asks Cherry to draw a composite sketch of a hijacker, her life takes a hairpin as the composite leads to a related murder, her local card-sharking buddy Max Avtaikin becomes bear bait and her nemesis labels the classical series “pervert art.”

Cherry’s jamming gears between trailer parks, Atlanta mansions, and trucker bars searching for the hijacker who left a widow and orphan destitute. While she seeks to help the misfortunate and save her local reputation, Cherry’s hammer down attitude has her facing the headlights of an oncoming killer.

To win a signed copy of the new edition of HIJACK IN ABSTRACT, in the comments below, tell me your favorite baked fall treat. Personally, I've got to go with a fried apple pie. Every year we head to the North Georgia Mountains, famous for their apples, so I can find the greasiest-looking apple stand -- they have the best fried pies!

15 MINUTES, Maizie Albright Star Detective #1

Hot Mystery Reviews pick for "2017 Top 10 Mysteries for Book Clubs"

"Child star and hilarious hot mess Maizie Albright trades Hollywood for the backwoods of Georgia and pure delight ensues. Maizie’s my new favorite escape from reality.” — Gretchen Archer, USA Today bestselling author of the Davis Way Crime Caper series

#WannabeDetective When ex-teen star Maizie Albright returns to her Southern hometown of Black Pine, Georgia, she hoped to rid herself of Hollywood tabloid and reality show hell for a new career as a private investigator. Instead, Hollyweird follows her home. Maizie’s costar crushing, but now for her gumshoe boss. Her stage-monster mother still demands screen time. Her latest rival wants her kicked off the set, preferably back to a California prison.​

By entangling herself in a missing person's case, she must reprise her most famous role. The job will demand a performance of a lifetime. But this time, the stakes are real and may prove deadly.

#3 Treat

Is another drawing! This time for a ebook copy of THE CUPID CAPER, the first full novel in my Finley Goodhart Crime Caper series! Finley chose a life of crime early in her life, but is trying to make up for it now by using those con artist skills to catch criminals. She's hoping her ex-boyfriend, Lex, will make the same choice. Together in The Cupid Caper, they're trying to catch their friend's killer.

In the comments below, tell me what crime fighting duo would you and your buddy choose as a Halloween costume?

Ex-con Finley Goodhart finds her criminal past--and criminal ex-boyfriend--useful in catching crooks. Can she make up for her past by helping victims double-cross their swindler? More importantly, can she convince Lex that going straight is the best (and most challenging) hustle of all?

While dealing with Lex--an ex who's doing his best to bamboozle Fin's heart--Finley's running from her past: a crooked cop dad, sharks, frauds, and mobsters. She's fighting her own style of justice: one where the con is the mark and the scam rewards the innocent. But if Finley gets caught, there's no honor among thieves. She could pay with her life.
