"Forever Festive" Got It's 1st Review... A 5 Star One

Sorry, no Sound Sample this weekend. Very busy week averting a strike at work, assembling a new bed, and having family over this weekend. But I thought I'd share this bit of news...

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Christmas Mystery with Intriguing Characters

Reviewed in the United States on December 20, 2021Verified Purchase

I enjoy reading Christmas mysteries, and while Forever Festive would have been a good read any time it was perfect for reading Christmas week. Rafael, who is a classic sort of 1940's detective except for an unusual twist, and Clara his British sweetheart have series of challenges to overcome before they can settle down to enjoy the holiday with Rafael's family. Can they find and save they imperiled young woman? What secrets are hidden under the surface of the town Rafael grew up in? And is there truly magic in Christmas Eve? The great thing is the prose is pure pleasure as you wind your way through this intriguing plot.

Remember: "Forever Festive" like all its predecessors is available for Kindle, Aubible, and Trade Paperback at the following links:

Sound Sample Saturday - Forever In Deep Chapter 3

Convinced that there is something to the recent drownings, Rafael and his partner Medium Brown begin their investigation. But where to find information and even leads on who might be involved in these mysterious deaths? Well, according to the coroner all the victims were somehow connected to horses and racing, so where better to start looking for suspects and leads than at the Saratoga Springs Racetrack.

Status of Projects

Just wanted to give a basic update as to where things are. 

Forever Festive is available in audiobook form now. I know, it's after the holidays, but if you prefer listening to reading because you are stuck in traffic or working with your hands, maybe extend the spirit of the season longer-- or put it on your wishlist so you get it in time for next year's Yuletide cheer. 

W.I.T.C.H. Hunters Forever, the spin off anthology, will be out in time for summer reading. Doing some last edits and getting cover art. This one has a mere glimpse of Rafael, but Clara Thomas, Sir Lynn, Eugene Marshall,  and Medium Brown provide other familiar faces. The collection also introduces new characters, one of whom will be an important player in the next Forever Detective book. 

The next Forever Detective book is in the writing process. It's called Forever Chosen and brings back Yekaterina and Rasputin. It's likely to run a little longer than the others so far.

Sound Sample Saturday - Forever In Deep Chapter 1

 What is going on under the waters of Lake Saratoga? Why are young women drowning at an alarming rate? The coroner thinks something fishy is happening and hires Rafael to dive into it. 
Metaphorically, of course. Running water is one of his weaknesses and he would never go in... willingly.
