Saturday Spotlight - Irene Brown

Hello from Bandera, TX!

Today's guest is author Irene Brown with her book, Where Danger Danced  Book 2 in the Celia Landrey Mystery Series  (Love that title!)

Celia Landrey is guiding her last walking-tour of the season in historic Pass Creek. Myriad tasks await her attention, such as planning her wedding to handsome cowboy real estate agent, Jake Flagg. Discovery of Smoke Allenby’s bones wasn’t on the agenda. But there they are, turned up in the removal project of an old underground fuel tank at Jolly Hoffman’s service station. A situation Celia, town leader, can hardly ignore.

Before he abruptly disappeared 60 years previously, half the town was in love with the charismatic drifter named Smoke Allenby. Older folks in the community knew the charming lothario back then, but when it comes out that Allenby was murdered, they’re not talking. What secrets do they hide? Are they protecting one of their own? 

There are threats against Celia for her investigation but she’s determined to separate the innocent from the guilty and halt an eruption of serious trouble. She just wishes she knew whose skin she’s trying to save.

Where Danger Danced can be purchased at the following locations....

Amazon Kindle edition

Amazon paperback

Barnes&Noble paperback 

Barnes&Noble Nook book

Irene Bennett Brown was born in Topeka, Kansas but from the age of nine, Oregon’s Willamette Valley has been home. As a child in one-room schools where she was often the only student in her class, she read, reread, and lived vicariously books like HEIDI, CADDIE WOODLAWN, and LITTLE WOMEN. These books fueled her own dream to be a writer.
She believes that author William Least Heat Moon is surely correct when he says “our passions at age 12 will always be with us and indicate our intended career.” 
A writer who can’t not write, her novels include a historical series Women Of Paragon Springs from Five Star Publishing and reprinted by Riveredge Books: LONG ROAD TURNING, BLUE HORIZONS, NO OTHER PLACE, and REAP THE SOUTH WIND. A love story set in Oregon’s Hells Canyon, HAVEN, a single title, was also published by Five Star.

WHERE GABLE SLEPT, the first book in her 
Celia Landrey  mystery series, was published by Riveredge Books in 2010. The second book in the series, WHERE DANGER DANCED, was released in December 2012. Irene’s novels are available as Kindle and Nook ebooks and in trade paper. 
When not following her favorite pursuits, writing and reading, you’ll find Irene enjoying travel and exploring historic places with her husband, Bob, a retired research chemist, and spending time with their growing and busy family. She is a Member of Western Writers of America, Authors Guild,Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America.
