A Day in the Life Devereaux Sinclair by Denise Swanson
Dev here. As the owner of Devereaux’s Dime Store and Gift Baskets, there’s a lot I enjoy about my job. I love being my own boss. I love selecting merchandise from bygone days. And I love creating gift baskets, be they naughty or sweet.
However, as I may have mentioned before, I really look forward to choosing the books for the spinner racks, which are in a place of honor front and center in my store. One rack is full of romances and the backlists of my favorite genre—mysteries. The other is new releases.
The first Tuesday is the best day of the month because that’s when most new mysteries come out. Next month (September 6) my very, very favorite series has a new book debuting. It’s number nineteen and I cannot wait to visit with my fictional friend Skye Denison. Oops, I mean Skye Denison Boyd. She’s only been married for two books so I keep forgetting her new name.
In her last adventure, Murder of an Open Book, Skye was only a few months pregnant, but in the one coming out soon, Murder of a Cranky Catnapper, her baby bump is considerably bigger. I wonder if that plays havoc with her Nancy Drew tendencies and her love life.
I got a sneak peek at the cover and I have to say the kitty cat with the bandits mask is the cutest thing ever. The story is about pet therapy and a nasty school board member who hates animals should make for a fun read.
I guess I’d better not agree to any dates with Jake or Noah for the days after the book arrives. I wouldn’t want even a hot guy to get between me and a murder mystery.
You can read more about Dev in Between a Book and a Hard Place, the fifth book in the Devereaux’s Dime Store a humorous romantic mystery series.
Also more about Skye and the cute animals in Murder of a Cranky Catnapper—available for pre-order now.
