Hid­den Body — A pre­quel novelette

Jo Durbin and her sis­ter Sylvie vis­it a home for sale. When a black cat cross­es their path, is it bad luck? Or, does the black cat lead to solv­ing a crime?

I liked the short, snap­py dia­logue between the sis­ters and admired their ded­i­ca­tion to stay­ing active.” 5 star Nook review

This pre­quel nov­el­ette seems like a great intro­duc­tion to the Jo Durbin Series, at least it has me want­i­ng to catch up on it. The sis­ters make a ter­rif­ic inves­tiga­tive team and the inter­play and dia­logue between the two of them had me gig­gling on places. The sec­ondary char­ac­ters are col­or­ful and well writ­ten. The best part though is the sneak peek at the end of Yesterday’s Body, which of course also whet my curios­i­ty to con­tin­ue read­ing the series.”  4 star review on 24 symbols

Yesterday’s Body — Book I

Jo Durbin knows one down-side of act­ing the home­less bag lady. The police will nev­er sus­pect one of those beau­ti­ful peo­ple she works with. Nor will they believe that she just hap­pened to find the very dead Francine. Will they point to her when they find the body?

I’m not say­ing Abbott Com­put­ing Ser­vices suf­fered from an acute form of TV demo­graph­ics, but, how did I get the job? I wasn’t under forty. I wasn’t anorex­ic slim. I didn’t have a face that would launch a thou­sand ships, or even a row­boat. Of course, I was a temp, and the young and beau­ti­ful wouldn’t have to look at me forever.”

Com­ments:      “I very much like your voice. You project just the tone and atti­tude I love to read.” Chris Roer­den, Author of Agatha Award-win­ning Don’t Mur­der Your Mystery

A very good mys­tery from a very dif­fer­ent kind of pro­tag­o­nist. Deserved the EPIC nom­i­na­tion.” Goodreads Review

For­got­ten Body — Book II

Jo Durbin, an embed­ded reporter, takes on the life of a reen­ac­tor of the War of 1812, America’s for­got­ten war. Should be a piece of cake. Plen­ty of action, faux dead bod­ies, pre­tend bat­tles, a weep­ing widow—all fod­der for her pen. Except—there’s a real body, for­got­ten in the tall grass.

Some­one killed him, but who? As the victim’s check­ered past emerges, sus­pects mul­ti­ply, includ­ing the police them­selves, a cou­ple of the reen­ac­tors, and even the may­or. Jo’s young friend might be involved—if not as the killer, then as one being pro­tect­ed by her friends. Jo doesn’t believe it.

When chil­dren are caught in the web, Jo must fol­low a fig­ment of her imag­i­na­tion despite any help or hin­drance from her sis­ter, and the man who wants to be more than a friend.

The char­ac­ter stick with you and as with all good char­ac­ters, some­times you like them and some­times you want to slap them! Jo Durbin is always up to some­thing and usu­al­ly man­ages to solve a crime at the same time she’s push­ing some­one’s but­tons.” 5 star Ama­zon review
