About the Author
Cher’ley Grogg first wants to greet you, “Howdy”. Cher’ley writes different genres. “Stamp Out Murder” is her first novel to be published; however, she has many poems, short stories and articles published online and in print books. She has a children’s mystery book and a picture book completed, and a YA novel and a suspense novel that are waiting for editing. Some of her hobbies are photography, and painting fine art. She has received awards in both mediums and she has art is in collections throughout the United States and foreign countries. She enjoys fishing, reading, walking, dancing, and long, long baths. She loves the Lord, her husband, children and grandchildren, and loves spending time with each of them. Lizzie, her boxer is a true joy. Cher’ley and her husband, Del, have seen the country through the windshield of a big yellow Kenworth Commercial truck, which they named Penelope, because with its blue fenders and spoiler, it reminded her of Penelope on Criminal Minds (the Blonde hair and heavy blue eye-shadow). There are many beautiful and fascinating states, but none as pretty (to them), as West Virginia. The Kanawha River is in their front yard and sometimes (not often enough), Cher’ley heads over the bank with her fishing pole, a few worms and Lizzie to see if they can catch supper. Her very favorite thing to do is laugh. She looks for every opportunity to share in something fun and interesting. She also likes to apply different Bible verses to her life. During the publication process of her novel, the one that speaks to her the most is found in Philippians 4:8. She likes to close with that verse. ‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.’ She’d like to say, “Ya’ll come back to see me when you can.”

The problem is, there's no room at the inn. James thinks he'll just drive a few miles north or south and get a nice room in a motel. He's straightened out pretty quickly and finds out he has to stay at the local bed and breakfast, run by a rather abrupt and odd woman. There's not much room there either, but the owner, Linda, does put him up in a little-used room at the top of the stairs.
James is a loner and mostly keeps to himself. He's not used to all these southern "y'all come back" ways. He wants little more than to be left alone to do his business and go home, back to civilization. Not going to happen.
Poor James. He is overrun with some of the most entertaining characters ever to grace the pages of a book. From an odd woman whose husband insists on leaving for business every time they take a vacation, to two old codgers who seem harmless, to the niece of the bed and breakfast proprietress the novel takes a series of twists and turns and keeps the reader on their toes as they follow the plot.
Beware, there are ghosts. And a couple of murders. Set against the backdrop of the beautiful hill country of West Virginia, author Cherley Grogg has done a fantastic job of bringing readers along on a colorful mystery that leaves you gasping at every twist. James is an outsider so the sheriff thinks he's guilty. But is he? Who is at the center of the McKeel clan's losses in the Cheat River? Are they accidents?
James gets one thing he definitely didn't bargain for - Carolyn. She is different, vulnerable and a little overbearing at times and very inquisitive. James would rather she left him alone. Or would he?
The author begins each chapter with a description of a collectible stamp and its worth. I guarantee you'll want to keep reading the book until you're finished, and like me, you'll be anxiously awaiting the next in the series!
