Book Blurb Friday: No Haven Found

No Haven Found

"With studied insouciance, Molly glanced causally over her left shoulder, then over her right. The coast was clear! Grinning widely, she shed her yellow Wellingtons and traipsed happily barefoot along the sodden path. The explosive blast of a gunshot nearby quickly stopped her in her tracks."

This is our introduction to private investigator Molly Malone, a free spirit whose fey ways lead every new client to question her ability. But make no mistake...on the job, this tenacious girl is a bulldog fighting for every bone of evidence she can dig up.

Third in the Molly Malone Mystery series, this tale of murder, mayhem and mistaken identity plays out at a yoga retreat. In the midst of serenity, a killer is loose. Can Molly stop him before anyone else dies, or will this be her last case?

Hang on tight and expect anything to happen on this riotous and rambunctious ride!

I'm linking this to Lisa's wonderful BBF, wherein she supplies a potential book cover and invites us to compose a blurb (150 words or less) so intriguing that potential readers would immediately buy the book. Check out the fun entries at this link...
Many thanks to Kathy Mathews for supplying this week's photo!

Very nice. Sounds like a good read and obviously the character is personable since this is the third book of her tales!

Oh, wonderful, Lynette. I would buy this book and the two preceding ones about sweet Molly Malone. I love a good mystery featuring a fey female.

Hi Lynette,

I love this, and I would buy it in a minute. I bet it is a fast and fun read. I also like the part about things going down at an otherwise peaceful yoga retreat.

I took this picture during a thunder and lightening storm, standing on the front porch. When you wrote that Molly heard a gunshot, I thought, no, that was thunder! Lol. Thanks for putting my link on here, and have a wonderful weekend,

Kathy M.

Deborah said...

I'm all in a fluster to catch up on the trilogy! ... well done :o)

Jenny said...

This sounds like my Mom's favorite kind of book!

Interesting review.

Lisa Ricard Claro said...

What a lovely way to introduce your character! You showed me her free spirit right from the start. I can imagine her being creative and funny and, ultimately, successful and interesting. Great blurb.

I'm so glad you're enjoying BBF and that it feeds your muse. Thanks so much for participating!

I was guessing from the context that "fey" meant "quirky," but I looked it up just to find out what the dictionary had to say. I was close, since it means "eccentric." I think even I, one who doesn't read much, would read this mystery! I like spunky girl detectives...I grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries and I loved them.
