Coming in June 2017 – Adrift on Edisto


Title of Book: Adrift on Edisto
By: C. Hope Clark
Genre: Mystery

Book Excerpt: Blood rushed in Callie’s ears. With an embarrassed board frozen before her, stunned citizens behind her, Callie stiffened in defense. “Excuse me?” She crushed the papers in her hand, but she wasn’t sure she had the strength for Brice’s challenge, or the focus to handle it properly. Not without getting fired on the spot . . . or being arrested for murder.

And God knows there’d been enough murder on the island.
She’d been exonerated by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division in the shootout. But that fact paled in the shadow of Mike Seabrook’s death. The community had adored him. And he’d been the man she’d professed to love just twenty-four hours before he succumbed to a bullet and a knife on a muddy, desolate, rained-out road.

A dead cellphone calls with a job offer and a promise of dragons.

Imagine if Terry Pratchett sat down with Kathy Bates to make up fractured fairy tales for Edward Evertt Horton to read aloud: you’d get Maven Fairy Godmother: Through the Veil.

Down and out, Maven Morrigan is ready to give up what’s left of her self-esteem for a cup of coffee when her last chance to redeem her life comes as a job offer as a fairy godmother.  But Faery is shrinking, the other fairy godmothers have disappeared, and nothing she does turns out right.  How can she put together the happily ever after each of her clients wants with her boss standing in her way?

 Maven Fairy Godmother: Through the Veil is fast, fun read that shows that none of us is ever old enough to know better as we try to wish for what we think will make us happy.
