She’s Back! Snowed In With Murder – Auralee Wallace READ ERICA BLOOM’S NEXT ADVENTURE TODAY!

Perhaps it is fitting that today is release day for Auralee Wallace’s next installment of the wildly funny Otter Lake Mysteries. Since there is an ice storm set to hit any moment, what better way is there to spend a snow day than reading about how to solve a murder in the midst of a Nor’easter Bloom style?

SYNOPSIS

There’s no retreat and no surrender when Erica Bloom finds herself stuck in a snow storm with a stone-cold killer. . .

Erica has returned to Otter Lake, New Hampshire, to rekindle her romance with Sheriff Grady Forrester at her mom’s island retreat, currently closed for the off season. Just ahead of a rapidly advancing storm front, Erica arrives to discover Mom has rented the lodge to a reality TV show. They’re filming the wealthy but awful Boatright brood, who’ve been summoned here by their patriarch because—so he says—one of them wants to kill him.

SNOWED IN WITH MURDER
Great television, terrible timing. Not only are Erica’s romantic hopes snuffed out like a candle flame, the nasty Nor’easter just became a superstorm…and no one is getting off the island ’til it blows over. When the power fails, it’s lights out for the patriarch. Now, marooned with a murdered millionaire and his feuding family, it’s up to Erica to take the killer by storm and get back to the business of reuniting with Grady—until death do they part!

REVIEW

First and foremost if you haven’t read the Otter Lake Mystery series YOU ARE MISSING OUT! One-click it now. Seriously, this author is a true genre breaker. I am a die hard romance reader who rarely strays from my bodice-ripping/bare-chested reads but for Ms. Wallace it is always a pleasure to read about what this unlikely (read somewhat Scooby Dooesque) band of characters are up to and how they are dealing with all the dang bodies! While the humour may test the bounds of the plausible it is always worth it to suspend disbelief for a while and hang with Erica, Freddie, and Rhonda! I am continually amazed at this ridiculously talented author’s ability to enchant and amuse with her words.

In the spirit of full disclosure I beta read this gem. Our poor Erica just can’t get a break when she blows into town just ahead of an epic Nor’easter her plans to woo back the oh so handsome Grady Forester are dashed when she finds that the retreat has been rented out and if possible even worse to a clan that has to be read to be believed! If ruining her best laid plans weren’t enough, they are there to film the pilot for a reality TV show! To add insult to injury this is no Bachelor reboot, before she can come up with a Plan B to try and save this weekend from epic failure status the Boatright family patriarch very suspiciously meets his maker leaving Erica in the now unfortunately familiar position of having to unmask a killer. Be prepared for madcap antics and hi-jinks a plenty! I loved the absurdity of our poor sleuth’s attempts to solve this crime before some decides to cut what could be Erica’s final scene.

Boobsie’s Revenge? Skinny Dipping With Murder by Auralee Wallace

Home life is no more natural to us than a cage is natural to a cockatoo. – George Bernard Shaw

If you have followed this blog for any length of time you will know that despite my admittedly crusty exterior I am a huge sucker for love stories, with a lot of heat. However, my all time favourite author does not pen erotica or anything remotely similar she writes contemporary humorous fiction and her latest release is a cozy mystery series. One would think it far out of my wheel house, to date there has not been a throbbing member in sight unless one of her characters has been unfortunate enough to whack their thumb with a hammer. She makes up for this with incredible, truly awe inspiring characterization and the wackiest plot lines ever!

In my personal reading world her characters are my closest friends, practically family, and this is coming from someone who snorts at the term “book boyfriend“. I should probably take this opportunity to introduce you to the Erica Bloom I know and love. You might know her by the unfortunate moniker of “Boobsie Bloom”, you have to admit it is rather catchy and if you knew what happened at The Raspberry Social you would understand. Is it reason to avoid coming home? Not really. But I have been known to avoid my Grandmother for months at a time because I know I am going to hear about my weight!

SYNOPSIS – When Erica was a teenager, she fell prey to a practical joke that left her near-naked in Otter Lake’s annual Raspberry Social. The incident was humiliating, but it wasn’t like anyone got killed-until now. Those who were behind that long-ago prank are starting to turn up dead, and Erica’s appearance in town makes her a prime suspect. To make matters worse, the town sheriff just happens to be Erica’s old nemesis, Grady Forrester…who also happens to be hotter than ever. Can Erica find a way to dig up the truth-before someone digs her grave?


Otter Lake is a small town like no other, yet one that every reader knows and loves. With her mother’s business struggling Erica is forced to return to the scene of the crime only to literally trip over a  body. This in and of itself would be upsetting but not particularly catastrophic unless they (the corpse) were tied to that prank that drove her away in the first place.

With her bestie at her side, determined to solve the crime and avoid a trip to the big house in the process, the reader is treated to a literary adventure like no other but one that will have you wiping tears of mirth from your eyes and wishing you knew people the likes of Freddie, Summer, Grady, Rhonda, Kit Kat and Tweety.

Regardless of whether reading about heaving bosoms has become stale, trust me when I say read Skinny Dipping With Murder now. You won’t regret it. The only issue you may encounter is the interminable wait until August when Pumpkin Picking With Murder comes out.

Sidekick Returns (Sidekick #2) – Auralee Wallace COMING SOON!

The Wait Is Almost OVER!

 Just in time for Christmas reading our favourite wanna-be superhero RETURNS!

After sort of single handedly thwarting her father’s nefarious plans to take over the world Bremy St. James and her motley gang are back for more crime fighting hi-jinks.

Sidekick Returns

824d7-goodreads

Fresh off thwarting the crime of the century, Bremy St. James is back and more determined than ever to fight by the side of the city’s top superhero, Dark Ryder. There’s just one problem: Dark Ryder’s disappeared.

To make matters worse, Bremy’s evil billionaire father, Atticus, is taking her lack of family loyalty very personally, and Bremy’s last tie to her old life, her reason behind her choices—her sister—is distancing herself as well.


The second installment of the Sidekick series raises the stakes even higher. After Atticus’ escape from the prison in the first book, things are quiet, too quiet. Bremy feels she is ready to take her place at Dark Ryder’s side only she is nowhere to be found and it isn’t long before ready or not Bremy is right back in the thick of things with her motley crew at her side.

It’s no secret that I love everything Auralee Wallace writes and unlike most writers she seems to get better and better with every word. If you haven’t read the first installment, one-click it immediately and hold on cause the circus is in town! For the rest of you it is only three short weeks until you can reacquaint yourselves with Bart, Queenie, Pierce and meet the Little Big Shot (think pint size Robin Thicke, shudder), the Angel of St. James, the Crime Mime and funeral director Kevin straight out of the Addams Family. It’s an unholy combination that works like something you could never imagine with equal parts hilarity and humanity that only Bremy can handle with her trademark naive obstinate perseverance that she can change the world with a bit of help from her friends.

Sidekick was much like a fun-house circus ride but in Sidekick Returns we discover a much darker side to super heroism that will ultimately pit Bremy against a foe she never imagined… her own twin sister.

If you appreciate unique, adrenaline filled, subtly witty and occasionally farcical stories then the Sidekick series is for you. Think Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer with a soupcon of Star Wars thrown in for good measure. Take my advice, read them. You won’t regret it.

Punishment – Linden MacIntyre GUEST POST REVIEW

GUEST POST – Auralee Wallace

Punishment

Punishment

Linden MacIntyre 

In Punishment, his first novel since completing his Long Stretch trilogy, Scotiabank Giller-winner Linden MacIntyre brings us a powerful exploration of justice and vengeance, and the peril that ensues when passion replaces reason, in a small town shaken by a tragic death.

Forced to retire early from his job as a corrections officer in Kingston Penitentiary, Tony Breau has limped back to the village where he grew up to lick his wounds, only to find that Dwayne Strickland, a young con he’d had dealings with in prison is back there too–and once again in trouble. Strickland has just been arrested following the suspicious death of a teenage girl, the granddaughter of Caddy Stewart, Tony’s first love.
Tony is soon caught in a fierce emotional struggle between the outcast Strickland and the still alluring Caddy. And then another figure from Tony’s past, the forceful Neil Archie MacDonald–just retired in murky circumstances from the Boston police force–stokes the community’s anger and suspicion and an irresistible demand for punishment. As Tony struggles to resist the vortex of vigilante action, Punishment builds into a total page-turner that blindsides you with twists and betrayals.

REVIEW

Ah, November. I could not pick a better release date month for Linden MacIntyre’s Punishment.

That doesn’t sound very good, does it?  Yet, in my biased opinion (redundancy intentional), Punishment is a good book.

Let me begin by saying, I am not the best person to review Punishment. I have a long-held bias towards Canadian Literature. It probably started back in university when I signed up for a Can. Lit. class. I’m not sure what I was expecting, but the first short story assigned was entitled “Snow,” and from there we ventured into tales of incest, disease, rape, and more general winter suffering. This is not to say these works didn’t have merit, on the contrary, they were assigned university readings, therefore someone with a PhD already had vetted them as “good,” or at the very least “important” and I was deeply affected by their powerful deliverance of messages of…of what? Cold, horror and dismay? I’m only half joking here, but the point is, I wouldn’t argue their literary merits, I just felt like I needed to be treated for depression afterwards.

Now, I’m not claiming to be an expert on Canadian Literature as I took only the one course, and I’m sure there are many shiny, happy examples of Canadian books out there that wouldn’t leave me feeling like I had been emotionally carved out. I just haven’t found them.

Fast-forwarding to present times, when I picked up MacIntyre’s book, I thought maybe I was ready to dip a toe once again into frigid Canadian waters. After all, it had been at least a year since I had read any other Canadiana, and it has been a relatively warm and sunny fall.

I still can’t decide if it was a good idea or not.

From a more clinical point of view (I’m not going to pretend to strive for objectivity), the book’s story questions were compelling. I read it quickly. I was invested in what was happening. I found the themes of justice and punishment intellectually satisfying, and I admired the weaving of the characters’ struggles against the aftermath of 911. As for the publisher’s promise of a “total page-turner that blindsides you with twists and betrayals,” well, the problem with such a claim is that I found myself looking for all the twists. As a result, I wasn’t so much blindsided at the turn of the page, as I was turning the page to be validated in my suspicions – a nonetheless satisfying experience (let’s be honest, sometimes even more satisfying). So yes, for me, Punishment, meets most, if not all, of my criteria for a really good, maybe even an excellent, book. More to the point, perhaps it will meet yours. I will say, however, that I’m going to wait at least a year again before I delve back into any Canadian literature…maybe even longer. I’ll re-evaluate in the spring.

THE SIDEKICK RETURNS – Book Two

GUEST POST – by Auralee Wallace

I’ve had a number of readers express confusion about whether SIDEKICK is a stand-alone book or a series. First let me say, I am so sorry! Kind of. I know SIDEKICK ends with some questions unanswered, and I also know that was a horrible thing for me to do. I think I need to go into a little bit of the history to explain how SIDEKICK came into being in order to clarify why I did this.

To begin, I always intended SIDEKICK to be a series. I love series, and when I came up with the idea for SIDEKICK, I was so excited about all the different directions I could take the character Bremy St. James. After I finished writing the first book, however, the cold, brutal realities of the publishing world set in. At first, SIDEKICK’s future looked bright. I had a number of nibbles from agents, but they all can back with the same verdict – it’s funny, it’s smart, but it may be just too out there to be an easy sell. After all, the urban fantasy world is pretty well saturated, and most of the genre focuses on the moody and broody. Well, Bremy St. James is a lot of things, but moody and broody she is not. That was a purposeful intention on my part, though. I wanted to depict a young woman who was resilient, who didn’t break into a million pieces by every hardship that came her way, whose everything wasn’t wrapped up in a man… someone heroic, even if at times her heroism is slightly delusional.

Anyway, at this point, a friend of mine recommended I pitch directly to editors. That’s when things really started to happen. All of the sudden, I had a bunch of offers! Good times. I finally settled on Escape Publishing because, to use a modern cliche, they really seemed to be picking up what I was putting down. The thing with my ebook contract though is that I didn’t get a multi-book deal with a schedule. Don’t get me wrong Escape has been extremely encouraging about sequels, but it’s just not guaranteed.

So where does SIDEKICK 2 stand? Well, I hope to have it completely done by the end of October. Let me say, I have had so much fun with the sequel. My poor Bremy who never lets anything get to her is about to be truly tested to her emotional core; Jenny, her mysterious twin, is about to step into the light; and, of course, everybody’s romantic relationship will be shaken…Oh! And, of course, there will be more Dark Ryder. Once it’s done, I will have to submit to Escape to see what they think. I am thoroughly optimistic that they will be pleased (SIDEKICK, I think, has had a good debut, so that helps). At that point, I should have a release date, a cover reveal, and all that fun stuff.

So in the meantime, if you’re hoping for a sequel, write a review or give SIDEKICK a rating if you haven’t already (Goodreads, Amazon, KOBO, B&N, whatever!), recommend it to a friend, or just keep your fingers crossed.

Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest, and, once again, I apologize for the confusion!

If I Were in Claire’s Shoes: An Exploration of Alternative Reactions to Being Sent Back in Time or “Dude, Where’s My Car?”

GUEST POST – Dude, Where’s My Car? by Auralee Wallace

Disclaimer: This post in no way is intended to insult Outlander. I understand the power of Outlander. I bow to all that is Outlander. Please don’t hurt me.

outlander0807141280jpg-0d271d_1280w

So I finally watched the first episode of Outlander the other day, and my reactions were many and varied (actually not so varied). First, the filming was beautiful (Why oh why can’t I see it in HD in Canada? Boo). Second, the costumes, settings, props, they, too, were beautiful (my husband even got sucked in for a minute or two based on his admiration of the cut Frank’s jacket.) Third, Jamie is BEAUTIFUL. Let’s pause for a brief Jamie moment, shall we?

Boom!

Oh my. Yes, that’s better.

I did, however, have one little hiccup in my generally glowing reactions. Claire. I have difficulty relating to Claire. I just don’t get the way she thinks sometimes. It got me thinking, how would I react if I were suddenly sent back in time? Would Claire’s strategies really help her survive? Would mine? I just couldn’t figure out the answer. But maybe you can…

Below I will present the evidence. Then after I ask you:

Who is Woman Enough to Survive 18th Century Scotland?…or …Who Will Get Booted Off the Horse?

off the horse

EXHIBIT A

THE SITUATION: you just woken up after being sent back in time…

CLAIRE:

time travel

Claire: What?

Her lovely figure dressed in flowing white gown wanders over lovely hill and dale.

BANG! Gunshot rings out.

INTERNAL DIALOGUE: When confronted with the impossible, the rational mind will grope for the logical. Perhaps I had stumbled onto the set of a cinema company filming a costume drama of some sort. But there was no logical reason for actors to fire live ammunition.

Runs.


AURALEE:

Beeker

Auralee: What the…? Did I pass out? Think, Auralee think. Did you mix allergy medication with wine last night? No…no…I swore I would never do that again. Where’s my car? Don’t tell me I forgot where I parked again. I hate it when I do that. God, every freaking time! You think I could study a landmark, remember a freaking tree or something.

Her figure, dressed in soccer shorts, t-shirt and running shoes, stomps angrily over lovely hill and dale.

BANG! Gunshot rings out.

INTERNAL DIALOGUE: What the f*#@ was that!

Runs…faster. Running shoes, remember?

Commentary: I think I totally nailed that one, don’t you?

EXHIBIT B

THE SITUATION: You’ve been taken back to what seems little more than a hut to a group of rough looking highlanders. They’re joking about assaulting you. Yeah, not funny. One of them, a rather fine looking lad, is injured and sitting by the fire. His arm is obviously dislocated. You know how to fix it.

CLAIRE:

Jamie

INTERNAL DIALOGUE: The wisest course of action would have been to keep my head down, my mouth shut, and wait for the search parties Frank must have called out by now.

Big man moves to pop handsome and also big man’s shoulder back in wrong way.

Claire: Don’t you dare! Stand aside at once. You’ll break his arm if you do it like that.


AURALEE:

Burn the witch

INTERNAL DIALOGUE: They think I’m witch. Stupid soccer shorts and running shoes. They totally think I’m a witch. I’m just going to keep my head down, and my mouth shut.

Big man moves to pop handsome and also big man’s shoulder back in wrong way.

Auralee: Oh! Pardon me. Pardon! Yes, if I a lowly witch woman, sorry, I mean, just woman, could have a word? I think perhaps I could show you how to do that perhaps without breaking his arm…then maybe you could consider not killing me?

Commentary: I’ll admit, I’m not quite sure which is the best approach here. I don’t like to consider myself snivelling, but I not at all am convinced that Claire’s feisty approach would go over too well…at least not long term. I typed into Google “treatment of women in 18th century Scotland”. Let’s just say I didn’t find anything really great.

EXHIBIT C

THE SITUATION: You’re on a horse with hot highlander. You’re freezing. It’s raining.

CLAIRE:

plaid
Claire: Careful. What are you trying to do?

Jamie: I’ll get my plaid loose to cover ye. You’re shivering.

Claire: Thank you. But I’m fine, really.

Jamie: You’re shaking so hard, it’s making my teeth rattle.


AURALEE:

Auralee: Um…what’s going on back there?

Jamie: I’ll get my plaid loose to cover ye. You’re shivering.

Auralee: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Oh God, thank you. So, what do you have on underneath that plaid? (Just kidding. I wouldn’t ask that last part. But I’d totally be thinking it.)

Commentary: Feisty be damned. I hate being cold. I always feel like Jack Nicholson when I’m cold.

So cold

EXHIBIT D

THE SITUATION: You’ve been riding forever now. You’ve almost been killed. It’s cold and freezing. Jamie offers you some alcohol.

CLAIRE:

Jamie: Have a wee nip. It willna fill your belly…

Claire angrily yanks head away.

…but it will make you forget you’re hungry.”

Claire deigns to drink.


AURALEE:

drinking

Commentary: Not necessary…I’m mean, seriously.

Well, there you have it. I’ve presented all the evidence. Who do you think would survive being sent back to 18th Century Scotland? I’m dying to know your thoughts, but until that time, I’ll just tide myself over with more Jamie. Ah, Jamie…
