PRLog - Jan. 3, 2013 - TAMPA, Fla. -- Florida Author Releases Two Cozy Mystery Novels in 2012 – Doggone and Twocan Sam
Author, D.M. Buckley is pleased to announce promotion of her cozy mystery novels, Doggone and Twocan Sam.
Thirty-two year old Lexi O’Malley, a boring software programmer by trade, was out of work, out of money, full of attitude and looking for a new career. When her eccentric Aunt Scarlet calls and shames her into helping search for Bubba, her missing, big, dopey, black Lab, she figures she might as well add out of luck to the mix since dog detective wasn’t exactly the great new profession she had in mind.
In the process of tending to her familial obligation, she finds Bubba beaten nearly to death and after Aunt Scarlet’s home is ransacked she accidentally learns her aunt’s handy man is not who he professes to be. While playing amateur sleuth, she’s shot at, pursued by thugs, crashes her car, finds her apartment burned to the ground and discovers that even though she’s short on expertise and not all that brave, she’s a master fibber and can hold her own in a crisis.
After Nick Romano, a trouble-making prankster from her childhood, guilts her into helping him out while he recovers from a bullet wound he received on her behalf, newly certified process server, Lexi O’Malley, is out to prove a point when, with a condescending smirk, she’s handed off a service by Mark, a P.I. with Romano Investigations, after he was unable to get it handled.
On her first assignment going solo, with her wits, gut instinct and plenty of attitude in her arsenal, she’s determined to get her man and rub the Affidavit of Service in Mark’s smug face, but when she finds herself in her subject’s home, only to exit a few minutes later just before a thunderous explosion shoots a huge fireball into the sky, she begins to have second thoughts about agreeing to the favor.
As one comic misadventure follows another, she’s shot at, stalked by a crazed lunatic, has her head almost sliced off and, in the end, surprises not only her peers, but herself with her tenacity and ability to get the job done.
Both books are available in print and e-book versions.
