The Fabergé Easter Egg

3rd in the series – August 3, 2018

Snowbirds Anne and Chauncey Livingstone aka Tsar Chauncey and Tsarina Anne winter in Po’thole, pronounced Po Ho by the natives and Pot Hole by anyone north of the Georgia state line, from the frigid tundra north (Maine). They have a Fabergé egg. Is it real or is it a fake? What does Russian billionaire Anatoly Petrov have to do with it? Bestselling author and computer company owner Parker Bell is back in her hometown for international mystery, intrigue, and, of course, Po’thole’s own brand of craziness with the Lady Gatorettes – Misty Dawn, Mary Jane, Rhonda Jean, Flo, and Myrtle Sue – five hormonal caffeine-and-sugar infused women who are die-hard University of Florida football fans.

A Honky Tonk Night

2nd in the series – October 22, 2016

Bestselling crime author and computer security business owner Parker Bell reluctantly keeps getting pulled back to her hometown of Po’thole, Florida – pronounced Po Ho by the natives and Pothole by anyone north of Georgia – and is caught up in the hilarious mayhem, chaos, and politics of a small town while trying to help the bumbling local law enforcement folks solve murders. With the debacle of the Full Moon Crappie Festival and three murders behind her, bestselling author and owner of a computer security company, Parker Bell is lured back to Po’thole by the murder of childhood friend and local socialite city commissioner Tabitha Smith.  A hilarious romp with wild murders, crazy characters, and believable enough that it might be true.

Parker Bell is a fantastic character. You can’t help liking her or laughing along with her escapades. “The next door neighbors are a hoot as are the rest of the supporting cast of characters. A plot you won’t easily untwist and a setting that is as real as the people.” ~ Skye-writer

A Dose of Nice

1st in the series – April 19, 2014

Every year since Christ was a small child, there has been a Full Moon Crappie Festival in beautiful, power plant emissions-filled Po’thole, Florida. Coffee addict Parker Bell, bestselling novelist and Atlanta computer security company owner, has been lured back to help her oldest friend during the hottest weekend of the year at the festival’s Old Fashion Antique Show and Sale.  Homeland Security believes there may be a terrorist cell in Po’thole. Parker’s up to her eyeballs in craziness, not to mention her book agent Saffron Woo is convinced there’s a bestseller to be written about Po’thole. Parker’s appears to be the only sane person in Po’thole…and even that’s debatable. Murder, suspense, terrorism, conspiracy between the FBI and Homeland Security, and a bunch of hormonal crazy women on the loose, what more could you ask you for in A Dose of Nice?

This book is an excellent read! It’s typical small town life in full color. The characters were humorous and the plot was fast moving and entertaining. When reading, I could relate many of the characters to someone typical in my hometown. This was a wonderfully written novel. It left me wanting to read another installment of Parker Bell’s life.” ~ Rhonda D. Odom
