Love a Good Mystery? Forever Doomed will Change the Way You Look at Cruises. #Kindle #Mystery @Oprah

Forever_Doomed_ebook_barnesnoble_BrighterIt was supposed to be the time of her life. She was young and beautiful, and single. She and a co-worker booked adjoining cabins and set sail for Europe. Four weeks of sun, fun, and (hopefully) lots of sex. Unfortunately for Pam Larsen, she met the wrong man at the wrong time and found herself on the wrong end of a very sharp knife.

Detective Jack Harney agrees to do an old Army buddy a favor. Curt Noble had some personal business to attend to, he didn’t say what. What he did say was he needed someone to temporarily take over his duties as head of security on the struggling cruise ship Forever. Jack hesitates, but he owes Curt his life so agrees. He’s told the worst mischief he can expect to encounter will be the occasional shoplifter, or drunk. Instead, one week into the cruise, a beautiful red head and a member of the crew are ruthlessly murdered. Are the two murders connected? It’s up to Jack to find out. He must find the killer before the ship returns to Tampa’s port, or worse, before another dead body is found.

“Do you know why it (the murder) wasn’t on any video?”


“Because this whole area is a blind spot. No cameras, no footage, no footage, no proof.”

“Forever Doomed has everything; it is by turns a murder mystery, thriller, love story with tones of humor, and is fast paced and the story never waivers.” Amazon review.

Make an Elvis Song into a Book Contest @mimibarbour #ElvisPresley #Contest

Elvis**After I listened to an old Elvis Presley hit called She’s Not You, I couldn’t get the words out of my head. Finally, it came to me. The sentiments were so beautiful that the story they told should be written. So, I wrote the first chapter and the song stopped haunting me. I released book #1 of the Elvis Series late in Nov.   

When it came time to decide which of Elvis’s song should be chosen for Book #2, I decided who better than the readers themselves to make the choice.
