Editorial Reviews

Review

"Perfect for Framing" is a fun, fast-paced read with lots of local flavor.  Although the mystery surrounding Petula's demise will keep you quickly turning pages, what's ultimately most satisfying is keeping company with the characters of Jemma and Tucker in this mountain adventure. -- Our State Magazine, Elizabeth Langfahl
Perfect for Framing is, in short, a delicious romance wrapped up in a brain-tickler of a mystery with a solution that can, in the end, be both frustrating and satisfying--frustrating because it's hard to unravel; yet satisfying, because when the solution is revealed, it feels inevitable.
Find yourself a cat or two, a comfy couch, and some time alone, then settle in for a story that is as deftly crafted as Jemma's cabinetry, and entertaining as Tucker's bemusement when Jemma gets it right--again! --  schuyler kaufman, Carolina Southern Live 
Mystery lovers will devour Bishop's new book like a chocolate lover savors fine chocolate. Reading it is like solving the mystery along with the heroine and going to the majestic North Carolina Mountains for a vacation. -- J C Walkup, Smokey Mountain Living, Author and naturalist

From the Author

I love to hear from readers!  Here are some frequently asked questions and answers.
Unlike many romances and mysteries, why do older adults play important roles in your novels?
Southern culture embraces family history.  People remain involved with their kin and often live nearby. Many older people live alone by choice but loved ones keep an eye on them.  The idea of someone over sixty with the capacity to flirt, even fall in love, is enchanting to me.  Love in all forms can grow stronger as life progresses.
Why do you include sports in your mysteries and romances?
Life as is writers is solitary and sedentary.   If I didn't involve myself in an outside activity, my blood would become sluggish, my brain would coagulate, and my imagination would stall.  Hiking in these mountains renews my connection to the earth, trees, other animals, clean air, sparkling streams-everything that enhances a person as a whole.  If a person is too busy to break away and do something away from concrete, a short break through my novels will help.  I did a five-day backpacking trip like in Appalachian Paradise.  I love to ski and was a ski patroller at Sugar Mountain like in Emeralds in the Snow.  Some of my fondest memories with my husband were on dude ranches so I set Murder at Blue Falls at an imaginary ranch in my valley near Triplett, NC.  I also enjoy swimming and golf.  The forth novel in the Appalachian Adventure series involves climbing.
Why do you include real people in your novels?
Jane Wilson, author of the cookbook, Mountain Born & Fed, inspired me to use real people like she did in writing up stories about her recipes.  It started in the second novel when I wanted to include fellow ski patrollers who are also my parents, Pearle and Lyle Bishop, mountain manager Gunther Jochl, and mountain groomer Joe White.  Joe White's real job is shoeing horses which fits into the dude ranch story.  He gave me permission for him to be a suspect. I list the real people in the acknowledgments, everyone else is pure fiction.
Since the male lead characters in the Appalachian Adventure novels are cousins, how do you keep track of the relationships?
I made a family tree which meant I had to create characters who will never be used in my novels but were necessary for me to understand who connected these four cousins. Plus, I had to keep track of siblings mentioned in various novels.  This technique is commonly used in broad sweeping historicals but is not necessary for most contemporary fiction.  Besides, it was fun!
