Bargain books September 08, 2021

1531 Entertainment had a bargain suggestion. It seems this was on our list back in June and somehow I missed reading it. What a mistake. It is awesome, I love this book. In fact the next two in the series are also bargains and I’m about to buy them too. I have to know what comes next.

Exercise Is Murder: A classic whodunit mystery with more twists and turns than a roller coaster. (Smiley and McBlythe Mystery Series Book 1)

Found at the bottom of his exercise pool, police believe the death of Steve Smiley’s friend is an accident. Smiley doesn’t buy it.

There are a lot of things a blind man can do, but solve a murder alone isn’t one of them. He needs a partner… one who knows their way around a crime scene. In walks Heather McBlythe. She can help him solve the crime, but can she keep him out of danger? Steve doesn’t have a choice. Without her someone will get away with murder.

Book 1 was awesome but can books 2 and 3 live up to the reputation? That’s what I want to know.

The Long Fall: A clean read whodunit with more twists and turns than a roller coaster! (Smiley and McBlythe Mystery Series Book 2) 

Four classmates in town for their twentieth high school class reunion. Now one of them is dead. Did he decide to end it all from the twelfth story? Or was it something more sinister?

Being blind sometimes had its advantages. Unhindered by how things look on the surface, private investigator Steve Smiley digs deep to think outside the box. Someone wanted it to look like suicide. He’s sure it was murder.

Blindsided by opposition from a surprising source, Smiley and his partner have to think fast. His reputation is on the line. Can they unmask the killer and bring justice? Or will this long fall prove to be the perfect murder?

The Ice House Murder: A clean read whodunit mystery with more twists and turns than a roller coaster! (Smiley and McBlythe Mystery Series Book 3)

Who committed the murder in the ice house? A lawyer of questionable repute approaches PIs Smiley and McBlythe to find out. They agree on one condition: that truth will prevail. Even if that means the Russian cooling his heels in jail is guilty.

Smiley and McBlythe have ten days to name the killer before the lawyer, and the Russian mob, do things their way.

The rules change when Heather arrives home to find her beloved cat gone. The ultimatum: Solve the murder in three days or she’ll never see him again. Smiley has one last trick up his sleeve to ferret out the killer. If it doesn’t work, Max will be gone, and so will his partner.

******************************

I love the humor and the way Mr. Hammack puts a story together. I love the characters too, especially the main characters. They are brilliant, quirky and fun.

I can hardly wait until I’m done posting for the night to get started on these two.

Happy reading to you.
