Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Buzzelli's enjoyable sequel to 2008's Dead Dancing Women, aspiring mystery novelist Emily Kincaid, who moved to rural northern Michigan to pursue her writing career, is making ends meet by contributing stories to the local newspaper. Among her fans is Deputy Dolly, of the Leetsville police department, who calls on Emily after receding lake waters reveal a human skeleton. Evidence links Dolly's former husband to the bones, and her loyalty to him leads her to rash action. The growing closeness between the two women is one of the book's strengths, as is Buzzelli's portrayal of the local Odawa tribe. Determined to be independent, Emily lets her loneliness lead her into making some poor decisions regarding her charming ex-husband. Despite too many extraneous details (There were dishes to scrape and pile into the dishwasher), the plot hangs together and builds to a satisfactory conclusion. (July)

More About the Author

I love living in the woods of northwest lower Michigan and receiving stories directly from nature. Nature gave me the crows that begin Dead Dancing Women; the low lake levels and the skeletons of Dead Floating Lovers; the unearthly place in the woods of book three, and the tent-worms: the overweening metaphor of book 4. My other work includes Gift of Evil (Bantam), history books, short stories in lit mags world-wide; work done on stage, and on radio. I teach writing at a local college and at Skidmore College for the International Womens Writing Guild. I write for the Northern Express Magazine and am on the Michigan State Library's committee to choose the best Michigan books of the year.
Both books of the Emily Kincaid series (currently out) have been well reviewed by Library Journal, PW, Booklist, Kirkus, Mystery Scene Magazine, Traverse City Record Eagle, Northern Express, Detroit Metro Times, and others.
I am a member of Michigan Writers, Detroit Working Writers, International Women's Writing Guild, Sisters in Crime, and also a member of The International Crime Writers Association.
I love hearing from readers and hope you'll contact me at my website: www.elizabethbuzzelli.com where Emily Kincaid, Deputy Dolly, and I all blog.

Format: Paperback
"Dead Floating Lovers" is a cozy mystery with a distinctly literary edge. The sleuths are a mismatched pair from "up north" Michigan - Emily, a sad sack who can't sell her novels, pay her bills, or say no to her obnoxious user of an ex-husband; and Deputy Dolly Wakowski, equally wounded but better at hiding it. The mystery, involving the murder of Dolly's long-missing husband and his Native American girlfriend, unfolds in a straight-forward manner without any shocking surprises. The complexity of the book lies in the main characters and their developing friendship. A cast of colorful locals add interest. Though the second in a series, this book can be enjoyed alone.

Fun read about small town America and some of its quirkiest characters. I love this series and look forward to each new entry.
