Guest Book Review - A Flair for Flip-Flops by Deborah Garner (The Sadie Kramer Flair Series) plus $25 Paypal Giveaway!


NEW RELEASE....

A vacation on the Southern California coast promises rest and relaxation for flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer and her mischievous Yorkie, Coco. But when the body of a heartthrob celebrity washes up on the beach outside her luxury hotel suite, Sadie's fun-in-the-sun soon turns into sleuthing-with-the-stars.

The resort's wine and appetizer gatherings, suspicious behavior of hotel guests, and casual strolls along the beach boardwalk may provide clues, but will they be enough to discover who the killer is?

Or will mystery and mayhem leave a Hollywood scandal unsolved?

"Deborah Garner is gifted at bringing each character to life. She adds details seamlessly, making it seem like you know these people. She presents scenarios that have you thinking you know who did it, and then in the next sentence you are second guessing yourself. And that is to say, this is a great “who done it” … it gets 2 thumbs up from me :)" - reviews Tracy Helps You

Guest Book Review by Carly Louise Wilson
‘A Flair for Flip-Flops’ is the first book that I have read by Deborah Garner, and it was a real enjoyable read that made me long for a vacation!

The book centre’s around Sadie Kramer, a middle aged tourist, who finds herself amongst a murder mystery when holidaying in Casa Playa, a resort in Southern California.

She has a penchant for travelling with her sidekick Coco her terrier, and enjoys the life of raiding fashion boutiques, whilst enjoying the peaceful life away from her business back home. But what Sadie also enjoys, is people watching and letting her investigative streak run wild, and when a body washes up on the beach and is rumoured to be a world famous actor, Sadie is in her element!

I loved the quirky charm of Sadie, for she is loveable, -nosey in a fun way- and has the ability of building a rapport with all the weird and wonderful characters on the resort. She is has a knack of finding clues as she goes about her day to day business, and finds herself becoming more embroiled with the murder mystery surrounding the disappearance of ‘GQ’.

I love how she has a love hate relationship with the detectives on the case, you can tell they assume she is a busybody body when at times she guides their investigation. She appears harmless, but is very alert, observant and clues in.

This book was great at capturing my attention, keeping my interest and I loved the plot twists. It was very clever and a fun read despite it being a murder mystery.

Great read with an addictive plot that made me want to know more. I will certainly be exploring more of this series! Ideal for mystery lovers and people who like lighthearted reads.

When flamboyant senior sleuth Sadie Kramer learns the owner of Cioccolato, her favorite chocolate shop, is in trouble, she heads for the California wine country with a tote-bagged Yorkie and a slew of questions. The fourth generation Tremiato Winery promises answers, but not before a dead body turns up at the vintners’ scheduled Harvest Festival.

All four Tremiato siblings have possible motives, as well as a few peripheral acquaintances, but only one could be the guilty party. As Sadie juggles truffles, tips and turmoil, she’ll need to sort the grapes from the wrath in order to find the identity of the killer.

When Sadie Kramer heads to New Orleans with her sidekick Yorkie, Coco, her sole expectation is a spectacular vacation.

And it is - until a customer at popular Chez Lisette Patisserie drops dead face-first in a raspberry-almond tart.

A competitive bakery, a newly-formed friendship, and even Hotel Arnaud-LeBlanc’s luxurious accommodations offer possible suspects. As Sadie sorts through a gumbo of interconnected characters, will she discover who the killer is? Or will the killer discover her first?

A Flair for Truffles (The Sadie Kramer Flair Mystery Book 4)

Sadie Kramer's friendly offer to deliver three boxes of gourmet Valentines truffles for her neighbor's chocolate shop, Cioccolato, backfires when she arrives to find the intended recipient deceased. Even more intriguing is the fact that the elegant heart-shaped gifts were ordered by three different men.

With the help of one detective and the hindrance of another, Sadie will search San Francisco from the prestigious financial district to a low-life bar, to iconic Fisherman's Wharf, looking for clues. With the help of her trusted sidekick Yorkie, Coco, will Sadie manage to find out "whodunnit" before the killer finds a way to stop her?
