Blackbird Fly (Bennett Sisters Book 1)
by Lise McClendon
ADIEU, HARRY HUSBAND! BONJOUR, NOUVEAU MONDE!
It might be sadder except that once Harry dies, his widow, Merle Bennett realizes almost immediately it was no wonder she didn’t know anything about him. They’d pretty much been leading separate lives—several of them, as it turns out. Still, the will’s quite a shock. And so is an intriguing surprise—Harry left her a family home in a tiny French village. Or maybe a family home. Because who was Harry’s family? Finding out is half the fun.

Trick Question: A Hard-Boiled New Orleans Legal Thriller (Tubby Dubonnet #3)
by Tony Dunbar
DUNBAR’S INVENTED A NEW GENRE: CALL IT CREOLE-FOODIE-NOIR.
For the discerning reader who enjoys a knowing chuckle, a sazerac, a bit of pompano en papillote, and a running travelogue of New Orleans along with his murders…
Medical lab janitor Cletus Busters is caught red-handed in a restricted area with the frozen head of Dr. Whitney Valentine, one of the lab’s most prestigious researchers. Busters won’t say much, except that he’s innocent. But given his conspicuous record and past as a voodoo guru, all signs point to life in prison.
Calling Tubby Dubonnet!
With the trial less than a week away, Busters’ lawyer has made exactly two motions – heading to the bar for several rounds of Wild Turkey and begging Tubby for help. Meanwhile, Tubby’s taken on a new client – a female boxer with an abusive boyfriend – and also has to referee the romantic entanglements of his ex-wife and three teenage daughters.
But as Buster’s trial proceeds, and the jury savors the startling evidence (alongside Dunbar’s succulent descriptions of Crescent City cuisine), the danger mounts. Revealing the murderer could prove to be Tubby’s biggest triumph – or his last case ever.
Warning: Do not attempt to read this book without a handy snack – preferably a Hubig’s pie or a pack of Zapp’s potato chips. Both would be better.

Bean Counter: A novel of murder, malfeasance, and mayhem
by T. A. Clark
What do you get when you mix two dead bodies, millions in missing money, and a dangerous idiot wearing a hammer he’s named Thor?
The answer: murder, malfeasance, and mayhem.
When the head of Nick Rohmer’s Miami accounting firm is found dead after a suspicious accident, Nick finds his quiet, comfortable, boring life slipping out of his control. With most of the firm’s management either on vacation, sick, or dead, Nick is thrust into the unfamiliar position of actually having some responsibility. The weight does not sit easily on his shoulders.
He’s relieved when the instructions from the Chicago head office are – don’t do anything until we get there. This, Nick can do. He tries to stick to his ‘do nothing’ instructions even as Keene Construction, the firm’s largest client, threatens to jump ship.
But Nick’s plan of inaction is short-lived. His fiancée convinces him that this is his opportunity to get noticed – to make a name for himself and finally get ahead. Against his better judgement, he institutes a plan to meet the owner of Keene Construction and save the business.
Nick secures an invitation to dinner on the private island of the mega-wealthy Keenes, a family that has perfected the art of dysfunction. Things quickly go from bad to disastrous when another dead body shows up, and Nick finds he’s the prime suspect.
As he gets sucked into the mystery, Nick’s focus quickly changes from trying to save the business to trying to save his skin.
Chasing clues and millions of missing dollars across South Florida, the action moves from the elite island enclave of Boca Cheeca Key, through a seamy Key Largo bar and across the azure waters of Biscayne Bay.
The story mixes action, suspense, and humor in a unique take on the South Florida mystery thriller genre.
