Please give a warm welcome for our fellow book dragon with her first solo novel!
Today I'm happy to present Secret Lives and Private Eyes by Heather Weidner, a mystery following private investigator Delanie as she searches for a reported dead rock star and one of her clients ends up a prime suspect of murder. I picked an endearing excerpt featuring Delanie and her brother Robbie talking about the no-good client.
Delanie and her fam sound amazing and as I discovered, Weidner really knows her mysteries! I wish I could've reviewed this one with the tour, but I had prior reading commitments and I'm a painfully slow writer. :(
But, I do have an exclusive interview to find out more about her, her writing process, and have some fun. That playlist is rockin'.
Last but not least, there's a fantastic giveaway for 4 Nancy Drew charms. It's all waiting for you below the fold.
Secret Lives and Private Eyes
by Heather Weidner
Business has been slow for Private Investigator, Delanie Fitzgerald, but her luck seems to change when a tell-all author hires her to find rock star, Johnny Velvet. Could the singer whose career purportedly ended in a fiery crash almost thirty years ago, still be alive?
And as though sifting through dead ends in a cold case isn’t bad enough, Chaz Wellington Smith, III, a loud-mouthed, strip club owner, also hires Delanie to uncover information about the mayor’s secret life. When the mayor is murdered, Chaz, is the key suspect. Now Delanie must clear his name and figure out why landscaper Tripp Payne, keeps popping up in her other investigation. Can the private investigator find the connection between the two cases before another murder – possibly her own – takes place?
Heather Weidner: Thank you so much for letting me visit today. I write mystery novels and short stories. I’ve been a mystery fan since Scooby-Doo and Nancy Drew.
