#SaturdaySpotlight: Maris Soule & The Crows

Good Morning and Welcome!

Well it's nice and C-O-L-D here...UGH (I am definitely NOT a winter person)..but never fear, if you're looking to curl up in front of the fire, on the couch or in the bed with a good book, I've got one for you in this week's Saturday Spotlight!

A relaxing afternoon walk in the woods with her Rhodesian Ridgeback puppy turns into a harrowing experience for accountant P.J. Benson; one that ends with a man dying in her dining room. P.J. has a stack of taxes to finish before April 15th; she doesn't have time to deal with people being murdered, her house being broken into, a biogenetic experiment that doesn't seem to exist, or an attractive homicide detective. Forced to question her sanity, she fears she's developing the same debilitating schizophrenia that claimed her mother's mind...that or someone really is trying to kill her.
Excerpt from THE CROWS
“You say the body’s in the dining room? Where’s this door lead?”
“My kitchen.”
He nodded. “I think we can let you inside where it’s warmer, but you’ll have to stay where I tell you. This is now a crime scene.”
“No, it’s a where-he-died scene. That’s where the crime occurred.” I pointed toward the woods.
He looked that direction, and that’s when I noticed his eye lashes. Why is it men always get the beautiful blue eyes and the long, thick lashes? It’s just not fair. I did notice a few crow’s-feet at the edges of his eyes, but they only added a rugged quality to his features.
His gaze came back to the door. “Did you go in this way when you found the body?”
“Yes, but I was careful. I only touched the end of the handle, below the blood.”
“Good.” He pulled a latex glove out of his jacket pocket and slipped it on. I noticed he wore no rings. Neither hand. Not that it meant he wasn’t married or had a significant other . . . or that I should care.

The Crows can be purchased at Amazon (Kindle); B&N (Nook); and Smashwords
