She’s done it again! In her new cozy mystery, Five Belles Too Many, Debra H. Goldstein once again shows her mastery at creating a tangle of secret lives and ambitious hearts where she hides the killer in plain sight within the story. And though we meticulously follow the clues she scatters for us, we’re always thrown for a loop because the killer is never who we think.

If you have been following these reviews, as I hope you have, and reading her previous books, you’ll be familiar with the twins, Emily the chef of Southwind restaurant in Wheaton, Alabama, and her sister Sarah, who works for a lawyer.

Trouble and murder seem to follow the twins in every project and venture and their joint ownership of the restaurant has found murder as the main course one too many times. Working in concert, they’ve always helped the police catch the culprit.

In Five Belles Too Many, Sarah takes center stage. The city of Wheaton hosts a Southern Belles reality show where five couples compete to win a perfect wedding and dream honeymoon. Excitement. Nerves on edge. Egos and tempers flaring. The tension ramps up when someone turns up dead. Sarah’s investigative instincts kick in as she attempts to identify the killer and prevent another death. The stakes are high because her mother is one of the show’s contestants and possibly the next victim.

Available July 2022, a perfect cozy mystery to add to your summer reading collection.

Remember to try the recipes at the end of the book.

See you next time on July 22nd!

THE GOOD GIRL Part Five

Gabriella’s decision to become romantically involved with her Billionaire boss, shoots her up the corporate ladder and gives her the happy ending all women wish for. There’s just one problem, she doesn’t want the fantasy.

Excerpt:

GABRIELLA

The problem was simple. I was being thrust into a life I wasn’t sure I could or wanted to handle. It’s one thing to date or be married to a rich guy. But this is different. Phillippe and his family weren’t just rich, they were part of the secret rich. They were the kind of people who build hospitals, community centers, sponsor the arts, fund research, influence politicians…elect politicians.

When things began to get serious, he told me there were things he couldn’t tell me. I just had no idea, they included so many zeroes. I’m not stupid or naive. I knew Phillippe was well off, but this is way beyond my imagination. It’s also a world I’m not sure I want to live in. Sometimes love and great sex aren’t enough to build a marriage on.

PHILLIPPE

I wasn’t used to these feelings. In a matter of months Gabriella had infected my blood stream. I wasn’t the same. I wasn’t a cocky arrogant boorish man. It’s like that man died the moment I laid eyes on the petite curvy ball of love, I was privileged and honored to call my wife.

I thought about going over to the manor, but I didn’t want to face Mere. I was ashamed to tell her, I messed up things and may have lost the love of my life. The other reason I didn’t want to go there was my grandfather. If he were there I don’t think I’d…in my current state, I couldn’t be sure I wouldn’t do him physical harm.

He was the reason I was in this mess. If it hadn’t been for him insisting I get married and me being so stubborn, I never would have gotten involved with Gabriella. Now because of his interference, I may have lost the only woman I will ever love.

Finding Your Brand

June 19, 2022 by in category Ages 2 Perfection Online Class, Online Classes tagged as , ,

Finding Your Brand

Presented by: Beth Bolden

Date: July 16, 2022 9AM PT

Pricing: A2P Member fee: FREE

Non-A2P Member fee: $10

About the Workshop: 

With so many books being published every year, how do you learn to separate yourself from the crowd? How do you develop a loyal, buying audience who is desperate to gobble up every single thing you write?

The answer is simple: branding.

Branding is the way you package yourself as an author, and the best part is that it’s not only easy, it doesn’t require you to change the way you write, what you write, or how you write. It doesn’t matter if you’re an indie author or traditionally published. Every author needs to figure out how to brand themselves.

Join Beth Bolden to discover the most important guidelines to branding and find an audience that is desperate to read your books!

About the Presenter:

Beth Bolden is originally from the Pacific Northwest, and she’s been writing since her mom stuck a pencil in her hand the first time. She used to think branding was a complete waste of time, but ever since she changed her mind, she’s doubled her book income (and you can, too!). The author of twenty-seven novels and eight novellas, Beth enjoys hanging out with her husband and their cat, Earl Grey, in their new hometown of Wake Forest, North Carolina. For more information on her published works, see www.bethbolden.com.
