About Nancy Basile
Nancy Basile grew up in the hills of West Virginia, scraping her knees, and dreaming about becoming a writer who lives on a houseboat, traveling up and down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers.
She thought she was missing out on "the world," she so moved to L.A. for a bit, then Cleveland. But eventually those hills came a'callin'. Like another brunette from the middle of nowhere, she realized there's no place like home.
Now, she's bringing West Virginia to life in the pages of the River Sutton Mysteries.

Checking out Sheriff Chris Payne's broad shoulders in his old quarterback's jersey wouldn't be a chore, either. So, make that two things.
But when Robin bumps into high school classmates, her homecoming turns into a nightmare. She literally stumbles over the dead body of her frenemy, River Sutton's top trophy wife.
The whole town suspects Robin, and even Chris wants to lock her up for her safety. Robin is forced to use her cyber sleuthing skills to uncover the River Sutton's killer before another body drops. Is it the desperate soon-to-be-ex-husband? Or the greedy land developer? Or someone else hidden in the shadows?
Praise for Roadside Homicide, Book 1What a treat to read this new book. I loved the small town dynamics and interactions. The plot is very unique and even with multiple characters and a few different plots, nothing gets lost or minimized. I cannot wait until the next in this series. Also, the author has prequel out for this series titled A Shoulder to Die On. Again it is a fun read. I'm a little jealous of how much these sisters love each other. - Anne, Goodreads
This is book one of the River Sutton Country Cozy Mysteries Series.. This is the perfect cozy mystery. Good story, interesting people, and hopefully a budding romance. Am excited to read the next book. - Gloria, Amazon
Living in a one bedroom apartment is working out as well as either professional woman thought. Neither wants to give up her independence, or her stuff. Add a broken air conditioner in the mix and you have the recipe for two cranky brides.
The grumpy cherry on top is that the smart speaker they've been waiting for isn't at the mailbox. And a bunch of other stuff has gone missing, too.
The duo become disagreeable detectives to find out which neighbor is stealing their packages. Is it the sweet, old lady? The goth hacker? Or the cheery, single dad? Once they start asking questions, they uncover more secrets than they bargained for.
But will they put their own differences aside and rediscover the romance between them?
Praise for The Disappearing Deliveries(The Disappearing Deliveries was originally part of Mystery Chronicles: A Cozy Mystery Anthology. Here are reviews for that book.)
Ok so I was a bit unsure about this one. But I shouldn’t have been. From the first story to the last I was hooked. It was fantastic. I didn’t want to put it down. You get a complete story to satisfy that need to know how something ends but you get a cliffhanger on there to draw you back for the next anthology. It was a well played, well written set of stories and I’m really looking forward to the next round. I also really hope I’ll see some return authors when they do it again. - Retta Holmes, Goodreads
This anthology has a good amount of mystery. The first story grabs your attention and sucks you in and then you speed through the other stories because they all give you clue board game vibes. Whether it’s death and ghosts or package thieves, this is a go to anthology once again from BBB. - Haley Lynne, Goodreads
When Robin Pearce came home to River Sutton, West Virginia for her little sister's wedding, she knew she'd run into old classmates, but not with her car.
Robin cut her small town roots in West Virginia and moved from the country to the big city to climb the corporate ladder as a web traffic analyst. She's a little nervous about seeing folks from high school.
Slipping back into small town ways is as uncomfortable for Robin as trying to squeeze into a bodycon dress. But with plenty of coffee and her own car karaoke, her confidence is high about her homecoming. Until a bleeding man stumbles into the road. Right in front of her car.
Although Robin tries desperately to save him, he dies in her arms, gasping his final words to her. She vows to carry his message to whoever it's intended for. As soon as she figures out who that is.
She teams up with hunky Sheriff Chris Payne, the former high school star quarterback, to track down the murderer. He warns her to leave the sleuthing to him, but when he arrests her childhood friend, it's up to her to use her computer skills to find the evidence that will clear her.
Between dress fittings, menu planning, favor making, ceremony planning, the wedding rehearsal, and dealing with her sister, Robin tries to catch a killer. Will she track down the murderer before her sister walks down the aisle to marry her wife-to-be?
Excerpt from Roadside Homicide
If he hadn’t been moving at a zombie’s pace, Robin would have crashed into him.
Robin slammed on the brake, screeching and skidding, leaving a cloud of dust behind her. A man, about her age, with sandy hair, stumbled out of his front yard, covered in blood. His arms were extended in front of him, zombie style, as he teetered toward her car. He tripped over an old tire at the edge of his yard, but stayed upright, making slow progress.
Without taking her eyes off the bleeding man, Robin squeezed the side button on her smart watch. “Call emergency services.” She yanked open her glove compartment and dug under receipts, expired insurance cards, and a gnarly hairbrush until her hand seized on the plastic box that held her DIY first aid kit. Robin hadn’t been a Girl Scout for nothing.
She threw open her door and ran to meet the bleeding zombie man. As soon as she reached him, he collapsed in her arms. Her muscles pulled as she lowered him to the dirt road. He was taller than her and he was all muscle and sinew, a farmer’s build. She glanced back and forth, but didn’t see anyone else around, unless you counted a couple of cows chewing their cuds about twenty yards away.

Praise for Roadside Homicide
A little gem! The storytelling is reminiscent of Sharyn McCrumb or Charlaine Harris - an easy, entertaining read that unfolds at a rapid pace. A story so engaging that I missed a fair amount of sleep so I could read “just one more chapter.” The town and the characters are well crafted, relatable and entertaining. And it’s refreshing to see rural people - Appalachians no less - depicted as real people and not just rubes and hillbillies. I can’t wait to find out what happens next to the residents of River Sutton. Next book, please! - Krista M. (Amazon)
What a treat to read this new book.
