Sitting down and getting started. After that the words flow. I mostly like to read mystery fiction written by people I know. My list can go on and on. This goes right along with the last question.

As she gets to know the rescued wolves and wolf-dog hybrids better, Belinda realizes that her human colleagues are not above suspicion. The characters are well rounded, well developed and three dimensional. Belinda is smart, funny and and not afraid of very much. She has to be brave in her line of work because she never knows what animal she will have to deal with. The secondary characters added a lot to the story. The writing style flows smoothly and it defined the characters by their actions and words.
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and through much of the book, I felt like I was right there, watching the wolves in their habitats. I liked the fact that I got to learn a little bit about wolves while enjoying a great read.

The mystery is well plotted and carried on well throughout the book. There were plenty of clues to sift through and suspects to consider, and although the culprit was one of suspects I contemplated, I was not completely sure until the reveal. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. And if you like animals then this is a must read.
I cannot wait to read the next one. I have loved to read since I was very small, and I won several writing contests growing up. That was about 11 years ago. Great question. The series is also different in that it portrays the big city NYC , as well as a middle-sized town Greenwich, Connecticut , but it also features the small town in Upstate New York where Belinda grew up.
So it offers a variety of settings. I want my plot to be exciting and hold together, and doing that early synopsis helps me work through technical issues like timelines, which are always tough ahead of time. The story and characters take on a life of their own, and trust me, sometimes they like to surprise me.
I had fantastic parents and I think I took that for granted when I was a teen. I would definitely tell my younger self to stop being such a smart mouth. Cover is one of the most important ways to hook readers, along with book blurbs and first chapters. I love her optimistic views on life, which are in direct contrast to the views of her psychologist sister, Katrina. Belinda also has a delightfully quirky mom, dad, and a couple of very intriguing love interests….

But in the end, I still enjoy the process. The hardest parts for me are the lower income in comparison to the hours you put into it and the low reviews can be SO discouraging. They are such an encouragement to me and often keep me going in my darker author days.

Banished from the idyllic English countryside he once called home and en route to live with his cousin in America, Sir John Farnleigh, black sheep of the wealthy Farnleigh clan, nearly perished in the sinking of the Titanic. Though he survived the catastrophe, his ties with his family did not, and he never returned to England—not even for the funerals of his mother, his father, or, most recently, his older brother Dudley. Now, nearly 25 years since he was first sent away, Sir John has finally returned home to claim his inheritance. Before the case can be settled, however, one of the two men is murdered, and Dr.
Gideon Fell, who happens to be passing through the village, finds himself facing one of the most challenging cases of his career. It is the ninth installment in the Dr. Gideon Fell series, which may be read in any order. Happily settled in her cozy cottage with its resident ghost, Cass Peake looks forward to Halloween.
Then another corpse is found on her beachfront.
With the support of family and her ghostly roommate, Cass investigates. The suspect list grows with a former husband, another needy relative, and a maybe shady accountant who suddenly disappears. Despite that, sparks still fly between him and Cass.
Can Cass solve the mystery and renew the romance with her ghost-adverse ex? With gossip, innuendo, and outright lies, Nona tries to turn the other merchants on the Square against Katie. But Katie has learned how to deal with people like Nona. Can she kill with kindness? In the sleepy village of Over Hampton lies a small cottage with a picture-perfect garden… but inside the ivy-covered walls a woman is dead on the bathroom floor.
She has met a handsome local journalist, and there might be a new romance on the cards. Everything is quiet at work too. Sukey can find no evidence to the contrary, but promises the doctor she will keep his theory in mind. Meanwhile, the police force is suddenly very busy after two young girls go missing in the very same village.
In the close-knit village she has no shortage of possible suspects: was it the benevolent builders, the frazzled new father or the muddled milkman…? And can she find the real culprit, and bring the girls back home, before any more innocent lives are lost? I very much want to give it at least 10 stars. Keeps getting better all the time.

But surrounded by hard-partying revelers, a scandalous royal court, and a shipload of pirates, the twisted truth may be more elusive than sunken treasure.
