Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I'm the author, and I'm very proud of this book. It was a difficult child, but I managed to corral all the wayward characters and steer them successfully to publication. If you read this book and enjoy it, please say a few kind words about it. If you don't enjoy it, just remember what your Mother told you: "If you can't say something nice, say something snarky." Or was that just MY mom?

From the Back Cover

COINCIDENCES HAPPEN...
      Housecleaner-turned-private investigator Peri Minneopa takes a routine case: a rich husband suspects his wife of infidelity. Coincidentally, bad things start happening to her.
     Peri's boyfriend, Detective Skip Carlton, investigates the death of Peri's elderly neighbor. It looks like a heart attack. Coincidentally, her husband died of a heart attack two weeks ago.
     The elderly couple left legal papers on the table, involving a year-old real estate purchase. Coincidentally, there is a note attached from Peri's client, a real estate developer.
     Except, Peri and Skip don't believe in coincidences. When their cases collide, she begins poking her nose into police business, butting heads with her boyfriend.
     Stonewalled by Skip and the police, Peri turns to an unlikely partner for help, an annoying little man who is obsessed with Dean Martin.
     If she can keep her sanity and her life -
SHE MIGHT JUST SOLVE THIS CASE.

Product description: Private Investigator Peri Minneopa is hired to investigate a wealthy, possibly cheating wife, but the wife's girlfriends have other ideas. After all, a friend will help you move - a good friend will help you move a body.

This is the second book in the Peri Minneopa mystery series and the first one I've read. I loved it. Peri is not your typical wise-cracking PI, which adds a refreshing touch to the story. I enjoyed all the characters, especially Dino fan, Benny. The author brings them to life and creates wonderful relationships between them all. Her villains mingle dangerously close to her protag to where you experience the tension first hand. Clever plot and subplots. I'm off to check out Freezer Burn, the first in the Peri series. Excellent job, Gayle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Peri story.... January 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
My wife (DeAnna Cameron) finished this book first but was thoughtful enough not to tell me anything about the story.... and what a story it was. A casual investigation of a suspected adultress turns into an well crafted story of friendship, deceipt, and murder. Peri is in over her head again and depends on her friends and her wits to find her way clear of some very unsavory characters.

BTW: thank you Gale for an encore appearence of Benny...he is simply my favorite excentric character and just a gem in this story from the tip of his Deno shoes to his perfectly maintained Cadillac.

Here's hoping you're working on your next book, I can't wait to get a copy!

She takes a case for a highly rich developer who wants to know if his wife is cheating. Our of now where things start to slowly happen to Peri. At first, she thinks it is a fluke she got metal in her tires, but when things start to heat up she thinks other wis

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun April 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Peri is a private eye just trying to do her job. So why is someone trying to scare her? Not even her detective boyfriend has that one figured out. Throw in a best friend, unwanted cat and a con on parole and there's lots of fun. Good read just not my most favorite. Will probably check out this author again

More About the Author

Gayle Carline is a typical Californian, meaning that she was born somewhere else. She moved to Orange County from Illinois in 1978, and landed in Placentia a few years later.

Her husband, Dale, bought her a laptop for Christmas in 1999 because she wanted to write. A year after that, he gave her horseback riding lessons. When she bought her first horse, she finally started writing.

Gayle began writing journalistic pieces for California Riding Magazine, then quickly added "humor columnist" to her resume with a weekly column in her local newspaper, the Placentia News-Times. What she really wanted to do was write mysteries, however, so in 2009 she crossed that off her list with the first of her Peri Minneopa mysteries.

Never at a loss for words or stories, she will continue to write as long as the ideas keep popping into her head. In her spare time, Gayle likes to sit down with friends and laugh over a glass of wine. And maybe plan a little murder and mayhem for the next novel.
