The $1.99 version of MISSING went on sale today for Kindle and Nook users! If you’re interested, please make sure you look for the version with the woman and buggy on the cover! Both the orignal and $1.99 books are listed. This is the first time any of my books have gone on sale, so I’m very excited!
In honor of this new version of Missing, which has some excerpts from The Search and Found, I thought I’d start ‘Teaser Tuesdays’~sharing little excerpts of The Search! So here’s a scene from Chapter 2, featuring Detective Luke Reynolds and Sheriff Mose Kramer…. Enjoy!
From The Search, Book 2 of The Secrets of Crittenden County. The Search will hit the shelves on June 19th.
March 19 3:00 pm
“Luke, if you don’t like my place, you should have never left Frannie’s bed and breakfast,” Mose Kramer announced after Luke made the mistake of complaining about the lack of hot water.
“Mose, you need to take care of the basics,” Luke said as he picked up his fork and took another bite of the roasted chicken on his plate. “You know…all you have to do is pay your bills. Electricity. Gas.”
“Those are taken care of. And that old water heater worked just fine for one person.” The look he sent Luke was priceless. It told-without a doubt-that he thought Luke was complaining far too much. “Settle down, eat, and then we’ll go back to my place.”
Mose lifted his chin. “Again, if you don’t want my company, you should go back to Frannie’s.”
“You know I can’t stay there any longer. She was one of the last people to see Perry alive. Because of that, she’s a suspect, or at least a person of interest. ”
Mose rolled his eyes. “Miss Frannie’s as much a suspect in Perry Borntrager’s murder as you are.”
“I’d say she’s got more of a motive than I do, Mose. She was seeing him when he died.”
“That don’t mean much. Frannie sees just about everybody. That’s her way.” Primly folding his hands on the table between them, Mose added, “She’s an innkeeper, you know.”
“You, Mose, are a piece of work.” Luke was sure he was going to strangle his old friend before he ever got out of Crittenden County.
Mose chuckled as he dug back into his own plate of food. As the minutes passed and their stomachs grew full, the investigation surfaced again.
“You should forget about Frannie Eicher.”
“I can’t, and you know that. She and Perry were courting.” Luke put emphasis on ‘courting’, pushing away the thought that the antiquated word now seemed to be a viable part of his vocabulary.
“Courting don’t mean everything you seem to think it does, English.”
