ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

SAndra has been writing for years with historicals being her main focus. By the time she had a polished manuscript in hand, historicals were unpopular. She didn't give up though and decided to try her hand at writing a mystery. A cozy mystery.

Her first book, Murder on The Ol' Bunions , released in April of 2008. Book two of the LaTisha Barnhart Mystery series, Polly Dent Loses Grip, and book three, Eat, Drink and Be Buried will follow in April 2009 and 2010, respectively.

She's almost always running a contest, so drop by her Website, you just might win a free gift!



ABOUT THE BOOK


LaTisha Barnhart’s bunions tell her something’s afoot as she delves deeper into the murder of her former employee, Marion Peters. When LaTisha becomes a suspect, the ante is upped, and she is determined to clear her name and find the culprit.

She’s burping Mark Hamm’s bad cooking to investigate his beef with Marion. . .getting her hair styled at a high falutin’ beauty parlor to see what has Regina Rogane in a snarl. . .playing self-appointed matchmaker between the local chief and a prime suspect. . .and thinking Payton O’Mahney’s music store lease might be the reason he’s singing out of tune when discussion of Marion’s murder arises. LaTisha’s thinking she just might use the reward money to get her bunions surgically removed. But she’s got to catch the crook first.

Small town intrigue, a delightful, vivid cast, and a well-crafted mystery make S. Dionne Moore’s debut novel a must-read! I loved it!~Susan May Warren~Award-winning author of Reclaiming Nick

“S. Dionne Moore has the rare quality of pulling together great characters and compelling plots.”

MY REVIEW:

LaTisha and Hardy Barhart make up the heart and soul of Moore’s debut cozy mystery, Murder on the Ol’ Bunions. This loving, very youthful-minded retired couple, have their lives a bit rattled when they stumble upon the body of LaTisha’s former employer and owner of the local antique shop. Once the short-staffed chief-of-police asks LaTisha to do a bit of private investigating to help out, the story picks up a full head of steam and runs delightfully down the adventuresome trail of solving the murder. Moore has you pointing a guilty finger at almost everyone in town before the story ends, and you find yourself shaking your head all along the way at the antics of the two main characters!


Murder on the Ol’ Bunions is filled with plenty of charm and enough good, down-home cooking that the reader may gain a few pounds in the process of reading! This Heartsong book fills every definition of a cozy mystery, and the author keeps you guessing right up until the end! So sit down with a warm cup of tea (my apologies, LaTisha!) and devour this book today!

Thanks for hosting me, Kim. I'm so glad you enjoyed Murder on the Ol' Bunions and Hardy and LaTisha. They are such fun to write. I'm getting ready to start another day of work as I start the fourth chapter of the third and final adventure.
