Editorial Reviews


An established must-read romance author, Maggie Bishop has crossed into the mystery genre with finesse. Her latest novel is packed with suspense around a tightly-woven plot which begins with the poisoning of dogs and escalates to the murder of a local man. Throughout, she deliciously teases the reader with the bristly attraction between the investigating detective and the woman who found the dead man's body and who just might be a suspect. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Boone, North Carolina, with engaging characters, red herrings at every turn, and a galvanizing story line, this is a must-have, must-read. Highly recommended. -- Christy Tillery French, Midwest Book Review
Our Very Own Agatha Christies: Set on a dude ranch near Boone in Watauga County, there's gorgeous, rugged scenery and lanky, craggy men. Here's an amusing twist--each of the different heroes in Bishop's novels are cousins from the Tucker clan. The Style: Simple and accessible. Photos of real nearby ranches and riding trails contribute to the book's "here and now" feel. You'll Like Best: The sparks that fly between the feisty heroines and the broad-shouldered, square-jawed alpha males. Appeals To: Your secret outdoor adventurer who's ready to challenge a high mountain top--and a tall mountain man. -- By Marcianne Miller  VERVE Magazine
For a fresh, enjoyable read with a homespun flavor, try MURDER AT BLUE FALLS.

From the Author

I love to hear from readers!  Here are some frequently asked questions with answers.
Why do you write mysteries?
I started with romance and turned to murder.  My second novel had a cold case mystery and I got hooked on CSI on TV.  Jemma Chase is the main character in Murder at Blue Falls and I couldn't let her go.  My publisher liked the idea of a mystery series and I wanted to keep the same two main characters.  It would be difficult to have a serial romance series but 
Where did Jemma Chase come from?  
I wanted to be 6' tall since I never made 5'3".  She works 3 jobs, lives on her parents ranch, similar to what many people in their 30s are doing in this economy.  Lots of mountain people hold down a variety of odd jobs. 
Does Detective Tucker have a first name?  
Yes, it is included in one of the books but he never uses it.  Jemma's nickname for him is Gator, short for "investigator."
Why do you use real people as minor characters? 
I live in the South where uniqueness is more than tolerated, it's encouraged.  It helps avoid using stereotypes. Plus it's fun for them and me.  You read about them and see them in movies but I live near them, know them, enjoy them.  Including myself, so I'm in my books like Alfred Hitchcock is in his movies.
