"Heather Haven is one of the funniest mystery authors around and The CEO Came DOA is her best book yet. Fast-paced with non-stop laughs. It doesn't get any better than that. A must-read 5 star series!"
"In her customary style, Ms Haven weaves another tale full of mystery, suspense, and humor. As usual Lee Alvarez's adventure takes you on a ride with many twists and turns. Once I started reading The CEO Came DOA, I found it difficult to put down." Roseanne Dowell, author of Ring Around the Rosy, The Family Affair Series and many others.
I enjoy the Alvarez family. They are great and work sowell together especially with the people they come in contact with. Definitelykeeps you enthralled and wanting more.
...family is very, VERY important to me, and having afamily of investigators hits the spot. It's rare that a single book has theability to add a series to my favorites list, but Haven's The CEO Came DOA mayhave done just that.
I really enjoyed this fun, fast paced and twistingplot.
~Deal Sharing Aunt
Lots of colorful characters, a strong plot, a charmingsetting and a funny heroine make this book a great one!
About the Author
After studying drama at the University of Miami in Florida, Heather went to Manhattan to pursue a career. There she wrote short stories, comedy acts, television treatments, ad copy, commercials, and two one-act plays, which were produced, among other places, at the famed Playwrights Horizon. Once, she even ghostwrote a book on how to run an employment agency. She was unemployed at the time. Her first novel started the Silicon Valley based Alvarez Family Murder Mystery Series. Murder is a Family Business, Book One, won the Single Titles Reviewers’ Choice Award 2011, followed by the second, A Wedding to Die For, 2012 Global and EPIC finalist for Best eBook Mystery of the Year. Death Runs in the Family won the coveted Global Gold for Best Mystery Novel, 2013. DEAD….If Only won the Global Silver for Best Mystery Novel, 2015. Her fifth novel of the series, The CEO Came DOA, debuts September, 2016. She loves writing this series mainly because she gets to play all of the characters, including the cat! Heather’s other series, The Persephone Cole Vintage Mystery Series, is set in Manhattan circa 1942, our country’s entrance into WWII. The Dagger Before Me, Book One, was voted best historical and mystery novel by Amazon readers in October, 2013. It was followed by Iced Diamonds. Book Three, The Chocolate Kiss-Off, is a 2016 Lefty Award Finalist Best Historical Mystery. On a personal note, her proudest award is the Silver IPPY (Independent Publisher Book Awards) Best Mystery/thriller 2014 for Death of a Clown. The stand-alone noir mystery is steeped in Heather’s family history. Daughter of real-life Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus folk, her mother was a trapeze artist/performer and father, an elephant trainer. Heather likes to say she brings the daily existence of the Big Top to life during World War II, embellished by her own murderous imagination. Heather gives lectures, speaks at book clubs, and moderates author panels in the Bay Area, as well as teaching the art of writing. She believes everyone should write something, be it a poem, short story or letter. Then go out and plant a tree. The world will be a better place for it.

I just "ran onto" this series of 5 novels, about a month and a half ago. It's about a family that owns a Detective Agency, called "Discretionary Inquiries".
With each book that I read, the Alvarez family became more and more like well-known and loved friends and I am impatiently waiting for the next Alvarez family novel.
There are 5 novels in this series so far and each one would make great "stand-alone" novels ... but I hope you will start with the first novel (Murder Is A Family Business) and read each one in turn.
Lee Alvarez is the "main-est" character and I really like her. The wonderful relationships between the family members (the whole family is in each novel) and the humor between them, are 2 of the great, enjoyable features of the series.
Also 2 more of the GREAT things about this series, is the fact that there is is no "gutter-language" and no blatant sex!
Among my top 3 favorite series of novels, the Alvarez Family series written by this author, is among them.
As a former resident having been employed in Silicon Valley, this book just hit the mark for me; however, even if you've not lived in/worked near/in Silicon Valley, you'll soon get caught up in the excitement of what goes on in "The Valley" and its companies, employees, successes and failures.
You must get this book and lose yourself in the story (and then become sleep-deprived) - my best description of a great book!
