This psychic mystery is a keeper!

This psychic mystery is a keeper!
  This psychic mystery is a keeper! Reba Rose Parker, the protagonist in Jenna B. Neece’s debut novel, is an irascible but loveable and irresistible character that takes her small town in Oklahoma by storm. Out walking one morning engaging in her profession as a photographer, she stumbles upon a grisly crime scene. Back at home, while editing her photos, she notices a hand in one of the shots. So she decides to return to the scene of the crime, if you will, to further investigate. That one move kicks off a series of startling and life-threatening events that Reba, although a psychic, doesn’t see coming. To her chagrin, the police want to bring her in for questioning. Kicking and screaming all the way, she soon learns that she’s not the only one in town with psychic abilities. It’s obvious that Jenna put a lot into how the paranormal element of the book would play out in the story and with each character. She is brilliant in how she uses the phenomenon to move the story forward as well as help Reba and the police, many of whom also have abilities, navigat...

Losing Lauren

Losing Lauren
  In less than two weeks, LOSING LAUREN, the second book in my Detective Rachel Storme Mystery Series will be available on Amazon.com. To say that I’m excited is a prodigious understatement. Justice for Jessica, the first book in the series, is doing well and has captured the imagination of fervid mystery readers around the world, many of whom have been clamoring for a second installment.  Well, the waiting will soon be over! LOSING LAUREN, like its predecessor, features the feisty, smart as a whip baby boomer Detective Rachel Storme, her supervisor Herb Jones, and her co-workers, Victor Sanchez and Carlos Ramirez.  However, there’s a new juicy mind-bending conundrum to solve with a new cast of possible suspects. Lauren Waters is an A-list award-winning actress who goes missing in the style of Gone Girl.  But is it Gone Girl? Is Lauren missing, dead, or has she run away? These are the questions that Detective Storme is determined to answer. In her quest to find the truth she takes no prisoners (no pun intended), including Lauren’s cousin, ...

Deciding Who Did It

Deciding Who Did It
  Who Shot JR? If you were living on planet earth in 1980, that question will resonate with you. It’s the advertising catchphrase that CBS created to promote the TV series, Dallas. It refers to the mystery surrounding a murder attempt against the character J.R.  Ewing—one of television’s most despicable and hated characters on TV at that time. After eight months, CBS revealed the culprit and an unprecedented 83 million people, 76% of all U.S. viewers, tuned in to find out who shot JR. However, the Who Shot JR episode failed to eclipse the viewership of another epic U.S. mystery—Who murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman? Ninety-five million Americans watched live television news coverage of the low-speed chase involving O.J. Simpson. Everyone loves a good mystery, and a lot of mystery buffs pride themselves on being able to figure out who did it before the detective in the novel they’re reading does. As a mystery writer, I take great pains in keeping readers guessing until the very end. Invariably, when I’m a guest author at a book club meeting, I’...

The Quiet Before the Storme

The Quiet Before the Storme
    Thank you, but no, that’s not a typo. I meant Storme, as in Rachel Storme, the detective in my new mystery series. The first book in the series, Justice for Jessica, is now available on Amazon, and I’m pleased to say that the reviews are excellent.  One reviewer by the name of Dee said the following: You are taken through a whirlwind of possible suspects and grow increasingly fascinated as you get deeper into the story and realize Jessica may have had her own secrets that she was keeping. This story reminded me of another book I loved which was "The Girl on the Train" while keeping to a totally separate storyline altogether and that is how great Justice for Jessica is. I am so excited about getting this book out to readers. Justice for Jessica, like all my books, is my baby, and I have fallen in love with my two protagonists—Stacey Sullivan and Rachel Storme. The story is told in alternating voices from each of their points of view. Stacy Sullivan, Jessica’s BFF, is a millennial married to a jerk. She’s desperately trying to find her own vo...
