30 second death_ebook

Tobi Tobias Mystery # 2 (aka 30 Second Death) is now available!  The digital version is just $4.99. There is also a trade paperback size available for those who prefer print books. You can purchase the book at your favorite online book vendor. If you haven’t yet started the series, Death in Advertising is waiting for you at just $3.99 for the digital.

As for the book, here’s the back cover copy:

To help an old friend, Tobi Tobias gets a third-rate thespian a part in a commercial, and learns that in the advertising business, bad acting can lead to murder . . .

When Tobi Tobias opened her own advertising agency, Carter McDade was there for her every step of the way. A brilliant hairdresser, Carter has just landed his dream project: doing hair and makeup for a theatrical production of Rapunzel. But the dream turns into a nightmare when he runs into Fiona Renoir, a cruel, talentless starlet who won’t let Carter touch a hair on her head.

To get Fiona out of Carter’s hair, Tobi hires the difficult actress for a bit part in her latest commercial. But true to character, Fiona is a terror on set, and Tobi is starting to think she’s made the biggest mistake of her life. But things get even worse when Fiona drops dead in the hairdresser’s chair, and the only suspect is the man left holding the tainted hair dye, Carter McDade. And unless Tobi can prove his innocence, he’ll never do hair in this town again.

A bit more curious about the characters?  You can read a blog post written by my main character, Tobi Tobias, HERE (for book # 1, Death in Advertising).    And you can read a blog post written by her best friend, Carter McDade, HERE (for 30 Second Death).

Next up?  And Death Goes To… (book # 3 in my Tobi Tobias Mysteries) will be out December 5th.   Dial M For Mousse (Emergency Dessert Squad # 3) will be out January 2nd.   Amish # 6 will be out in late winter/early spring.   Portrait of a Sister, my first ever Amish-based women’s fiction novel, will be out in summer 2018.
