More About the Author
A personal Thank You to all my readers who make this little statistic possible. Having fun with my writing, and connecting with readers--that's what being a mystery writer means to me. And I LOVE what I do!
It began in 1985 when I started writing my first novel, without much clue how to go about it. Two years and 500 pages later, when I finally typed 'The End,' I felt a huge rush of excitement. That book took third place in the Southwest Writers competition and began making the rounds of publishers. I simply started writing my second, and then my third books.
After publishing ten of my Charlie Parker mysteries, I decided to branch out with a second series and I created the character of Samantha Sweet. One of the ways in which I earned a little extra pocket money during my high school years was to bake and decorate cakes--hence, a career for Samantha based on my own experiences.
In 2009 I switched publishers and was off on a new adventure, seeing all of my books made available for Kindle and the other ebook devices that were just beginning to take off in the book world. It's been an exciting time in publishing and I'm loving the new formats and the ability to personally connect with readers all over the world via my newsletter and my website at connieshelton.com.

As soon as I read that Rusty is now dead, I'm not even going to finish reading this book. I'm done and finished with this series that seems to use animal abuse and now death so casually. Shameful.
Finally, a book I could get into! I absolutely loved the heroine. From the start, the author put me right into the action. I had to keep reading to learn how plucky Charlie would solve her dilemma.
I loved the author's voice, and her deft characterizations of not only Charlie, her husband, and the secondary characters, but also the villains. Yes, I felt the tension, but knew in my heart that somehow the heroine would prevail. Also, it was great fun reading about the foibles of the villains.
Another reviewer mentioned reading the preceding Charlie Parker mysteries in order before reading this one. I must admit this was my first Charlie Parker mystery experience, but I had no trouble bonding with the character and understanding what was going on.
That said, judging from the outstanding quality of #12 in the series, I may have some catching up to do!
So, although I found these two mistakes just a bit annoying, since I expect better from Ms Shelton, I still thoroughly enjoyed the book and look forward to the next.

All the Charlie Parker series books are good, and this one was the best yet.Published 13 months ago by LAangler
I think this is the best book of the series so far. It starts out with suspense and doesn't let up until the end. Connie Shelton really outdid herself this time.Published 13 months ago by Kindle Customer
