 Dastardly Deeds at Doomsday Beach Excerpt


Joann Keder

“Go ahead and take your walk," Sophia Reed Floris turned away from her mother. "I’m going to call Brandon to check on my boys. Taurus has Tots with Bots tonight, where he’s learning how to make robots. I’m worried Brandon will be too exhausted to take him so we may need to ask the nanny to work overtime.”

“Sophia!” Gemini crossed her arms and stared at her daughter with disgust. “You had a nanny there this whole time? And I thought Brandon was doing something noble by taking the week off to be with his son!”

“I’m not arguing with you, Mother. Have your walk and then find something for dinner. There’s a takeout menu on the table and the pantry is well stocked.”

Sophia pivoted toward the giant house without waiting for a reply. “Oh, a kitty! Aren’t you pretty?” She paused to pet a stray cat who, moments earlier, had befriended her mother.

Gemini watched as her daughter walked inside. She had the same relaxed “lope” to her gait that her father did. No matter how hard Sophia Reed Floris tried to be part of the upper crust, she was still a product of the Reed’s Paint and Appliance family.

"Now, where was I?" Gemini returned to the picturesque spot she'd found before Sophia's interruption. Even though their relationship wasn't perfect, she was glad they decided to spend this week together. If she was being honest, she was just as defiant as her daughter.

Gemini closed her eyes and made a wish, just like her father always encouraged her to do. “I wish for something to bring us together as mother and daughter,” she said out loud. The wish wouldn't be complete until she found the perfect stone to throw over the cliff.

A nice selection of small stones rested beside her feet, so she picked the largest one and tossed it over the side with satisfaction. When she glanced down to see where it might have landed, she noticed a baby blue jacket. “What a pity. Someone lost a nice coat.”

It looked to be in good condition, probably a women's jacket too. Sophia would be horrified to hear that her mother had taken someone else's leftovers. Maybe that's what made it so appealing?

She focused in on the coat before making her final decision. When she did, she realized there was something inside the coat. It wasn’t just a coat caught on the rocks. It was a human.

About Patti Larsen

I'm a multiple award-winning writer with a passion for the voices in my head. With many (many!) titles across many (many!) genres, all in happy publication, there's no end in sight...

That being said, I'm short (permanent), happy (I have the best life ever) and blonde (for ever and ever). I love to talk one on one about the deepest topics and can't seem to stop seeing the big picture. I happily live on Prince Edward Island, Canada, home to Anne of Green Gables and the most beautiful red beaches in the world, with my multiple cats, pug overlord and lady and Gypsy Vanner gelding, Fynn.

About R.B. Marshall

Like my amateur sleuth, Izzy, I'm a dressage-riding computer geek who loves coffee - but there the similarity ends. She is far smarter than me, and a lot younger! I hope you'll join me in discovering where her curiosity leads to next...

Pretty much all my books are set in my native Scotland, and my mystery stories are no exception. You'll meet colourful characters solving perplexing puzzles in the most glorious landscape imaginable. Throw in a castle or two, the occasional royal, and maybe even a delicious cake shop, and you'll have the recipe for my new series.

I also write fantasy and clean romance/women's fiction, as Roz Marshall: http://viewAuthor.at/RozMarshall

and Historical Romance telling the story of Mary Queen of Scots, as Belle McInnes: http://viewauthor.at/BelleMcInnes

About Hillary Avis

Hillary Avis writes cozy mysteries about smart women who persist until they uncover the truth—about themselves, about their communities, and of course about any unsolved murders.

She grew up in a small town on the west coast, went to college in a small town on the east coast, and now lives in beautiful Eugene, Oregon. She has two charming children, three fluffy dogs, and two practically perfect felines named Mystery and Intrigue. She also has too many chickens and one very patient husband.

When Hillary’s not reading, writing, or editing, she bakes bread, makes pottery, drinks coffee, and streams The Great British Bake-Off, but not all at the same time.

About Cate Lawley

Cate Lawley writes humorous, action-filled mysteries that frequently contain a paranormal twist.

When Cate’s not tapping away at her keyboard or in deep contemplation of her next fanciful writing project, she's sweeping up hairy dust bunnies and watching British mysteries.

Cate is from Austin, Texas (where many of her stories take place) but has recently migrated north to Boise, Idaho, where soup season (her favorite time of year) lasts more than two weeks.

She's worked as an attorney, a dog trainer, and in various other positions, but writer is the hands-down winner. She's thankful readers keep reading, so she can keep writing!
