What Would You Do? And a Giveaway!

By Kate Davidson of Tracy Weber's Downward Dog Mystery Series!

Hey everyone!  Kate Davidson here, the yoga teacher/sleuth in Tracy Weber’s Downward Dog Mystery Series.  Tracy asked me to stop by to wish her husband, Marc, a happy double-five birthday!  Marc never gets enough credit for everything he does to help Tracy with her yoga studio and her writing, so please wish him a day filled with everything he wants.

Which reminds me of my boyfriend, Michael, and the troubles he's facing in Tracy's newest mystery, Pre-Meditated Murder. Michael’s truly a great guy, and although we argue sometimes (what couple doesn’t?) he supports me even when he disagrees with me, and he has put up with more relationship drama from me than most men would ever consider. 
 
Which is why I need to help him now. 
 
Most women would cut bait and run if they found out that their live-in boyfriend was married to someone else,  and believe me, I considered it.  But in all fairness, Michael tried to get a divorce.  In fact, that’s why we’re here in Cannon Beach, Oregon.  Michael came back to his hometown to strong-arm Gabriella into finally signing divorce papers.

There's only one problem:  Somebody killed Gabriella last night, and the police think it was Michael. Michael didn’t do it.  At least I don't think he did ... 
 
Scratch that I know Michael didn’t kill Gabriella.  He doesn’t have the capacity for violence, and he still cared about her. But how am I supposed to prove Michael’s innocence when he can’t remember where he was or what he was doing during the time of Gabriella's murder?  Michael’s helped me get out of some tough spots before.  I can’t leave him now.  But I have no idea how to help him.

What would you do?
 
Give Kate advice by leaving a comment below by Sunday, September 17, and you'll be entered to win an autographed, advanced copy of Pre-Meditated Murder.
 
Good luck!

  6. Kate, please pass along my birthday wishes to Marc.

    Oh my gosh! I didn't realize Michael was married. I never read the blurbs for your books, I just read the books. Honestly, you're pretty good at asking questions. Sometimes, you go a little too far, but in this case, I say go all out. I would start with talking with the people who knew Gabriella. I'm willing to bet that the person who killed her was someone close, just not Michael. kvmatlock (at) gmail (dot) com

  14. I especially liked the illustrator of the first bunch of book covers, with those naive but delightful cartoons! So, I think she should look up that cartoonist and have him (or her) draw up all the possible scenarios. Once it is envisioned through cartooning, surely the solution will be found!

  37. I would want him to have a gunshot residue test (if she was shot). Otherwise, literally walk him through the area, see if anyone remembers seeing him, and ask him questions about the things he sees on the walk vs. what he might remember. (jeaniedannheim (at) ymail (dot) com

  40. I'd talk to their mutual friends. Everybody loves to gossip after the fact, right? beckythemom(at)hotmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hypnosis to get to the truth and then find out who will gain from Gabriella's death.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Time to investigate. Who did Gabriella know that was in the vicinity at the time of her murder? Who had a motive? Where were all the suspects at the time of her death? Any forensics that could be gathered or followed up on? Make a list or a chart showing everyone that is a suspect and then start to cross people off after interviewing them or people around them. Talk to everyone that was in the area at the time of the murder.
    Just a few suggestions.

  43. This is my comment. What can I say. I've been a fan since before you were published.

  44. If no one can serve as an alibi, Michael should go to a hypnotist so that he/she can help him remember the events of the night Gabriella was killed. Hopefully, retracing his steps will prove his innocence! :-)

  45. I would be completely skeptical of his innocence!! If he hid the fact that he was married, then what else is he hiding?!?!
