I have greatly neglected my blogging activity in that there has been no activity recently. After launching “Disappearance in Plain Country,” I then returned to freelance writing in between promotions for my own works. I know, promotions should include blogging…
And, now I find myself at the end of the first month of the new year and almost ready to publish my third novel in the mystery genre. It is the second of the Beatrice Chandler Mysteries, “Betrayal of the River.” This time Beatrice finds herself in the middle of a murder that occurs on the floor above her room at Wilson Farmstead Inn. The Inn is located on the banks of the Mississippi River between St. Charles, MO and Hannibal, Mo.
Beatrice came to the Inn to find peace and quiet to complete her latest crime novel. Instead, she discovers she is in the middle of one of the greatest mysteries of all that revolves around a Karl Bodmer painting that hangs in the Inn’s museum. Someone, and she suspects one of the guests, chooses murder to reach his or her goal.
She is in harm’s way more than once. Determined to solve the murder, she plows forward as she joins the local Police Department in her endeavors. During the investigation, she finds several of the guests are not who they proclaim to be.
“Betrayal of the River” is slated to come out mid-February and will be found on amazon.com and listed with B&N.
