"of course we can be friends! texans are like that, yes we are. my mom is in austin as is one of the nephews, his wife and child.
humorous mysteries, huh...that sounds like fun reading! where are they set? in austin? surely not out of state?!?"
Texas, certainly. And little New Mexico and Mexico. A little Nazis, a little Alamo. Would you like to review a pre-pub copy of 'TOO RICH and TOO THIN, Not an Autobiography?'
Here's the blurb:
TOO THIN and TOO RICH, back cover blurb
Pack your bags for Texas and prepare to meet the strangest family since that little Chainsaw Massacre incident. Psychologist Jessica LeFave will be your guide, but be forewarned that Dr. LeFave isn’t your average shrink, and though her wisecracking lawyer buddy, George, will try to keep Jessica out of trouble, he won’t be able to save you or himself.
Your journey opens when Jessica is summoned to profile the killer who drove a spike through the heart of the notorious Bernice Jackson. Jessica is excited.
Not because Bernice Jackson is dead, but because Bernice--who’d soared to fame and wealth by shamelessly re-writing treasured historical events into wildly successful soft-porn novels and movies--was a psychiatry patient of her husband's at the time of his death.
You see, Jessica is convinced her husband was murdered to bury a secret revealed in therapy. Since watching him dragged from the bottom of Lake Austin—a Hilton receipt and another woman’s wedding rings in his pocket—Jessica has been a little crazy, obsessing over his files, even stalking patients with dodgy reputations.
The police dismiss her claims, leaving Jessica on her own to land your Texas tour smack in the middle of the bizarre movie-making family starring a doped up basket case son, a daughter on a death wish eating binge, and the ghost of Bernice Jackson who’d pushed her obsession with seeing herself as young and beautiful beyond any psychotic dream.
