First Stop on my Virtual Book Tour: Gelati's Scoop & Reviews

Today is the first day of my Virtual Book Tour for Deadly Currents, the first book in my new RM Outdoor Adventures mystery series starring whitewater river ranger Mandy Tanner. It will be released in one week on March 8th. And what a way to kick off the show! Giovanni Gelati is hosting me at his Gelati's Scoop blog, where he reviews books. His review of Deadly Currents is fantastic and warms my heart. You've just GOT to read it for yourself. :)

In the comments on his blog, we're having a discussion about what adventure, sport or activity you've always wanted to try and haven't yet. See what mine is and leave a comment about yours. When you comment, you're automatically entered into a contest for a free copy of Deadly Currents.

You can find the schedule of my Virtual Book Tour HERE. I hope you'll read each day's post, and leave a comment on each one. Every comment gives you another entry in the contest. Good luck!

While I'm on the subject of reviews, quite a few positive reviews for Deadly Currents have appeared lately. The first is from the March 1 issue of Library Journal. You can read the whole mention in their "Mysteries in Brief" column there, but here's a quote from it:

"With a fresh locale and a spunky if at times too emotional heroine, this is a promising new series by the author of the gift-basket designer Claire Hanover mysteries (A Real Basket Case)."

The next review is from Carol Thomas, who writes the Mystery Series Examiner column. You can read her whole review of Deadly Currents HERE, but a quote from it is below:

"Those who enjoy environmental mysteries – Sandi Ault’s Jamaica Wild series, Nevada Barr’s Anna Pigeon series, C.J. Box’s Joe Picket series, Jessica Speart’s Rachel Porter series or Randy Wayne White’s Doc Ford series, to name just a few – will welcome this new addition to their ranks."

And the third review is from Patricia Reid, who posts her reviews at Goodreads and other locations. You can read her review of Deadly Currents at Bestsellersworld or Mysteries Galore.com. And, here's a quote from it to whet your appetite:

"The scenery around Salida and descriptions of all the activities based on the nearby Arkansas River make for an interesting and exciting read."

I'm thrilled with all the good reviews Deadly Currents is receiving, including those already received from Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, and Publishers Weekly! Now, don't forget to visit Gelati's Scoop.
