Featured: Double Dog Dare by C.S. McDonald
What if you could relive the past and be sent back with an Angel to solve murders? It’s a clever new focus on time travel.
That ornery, but oh, so handsome, charming, and somewhat, wayward angel, Detective Bobby Starr, has returned.
This time, he’s back to fulfill his third and, hopefully, his final requirement to get into Saint Peter’s prestigious Guardian Angel Squad.
This time, the usually reluctant time traveler, Alexa Owl, is ready to go back to the 1960’s to assist in solving one more long-ago murder.
Because if all goes well, she’ll be rid of the menacing angel once and for all.
Except, an emergency jerks Alexa back to her own time, and to complicate matters, she’s got a tag-along.
Can Bobby solve this last case without Alexa’s help?
After all, she’s got her hands full with a life-or-death mystery in the twenty-first century!
Meet C.S. McDonald:
C.S. McDonald taught dance and choreographed shows for twenty-six years. Nowadays, she resides with her husband, Bill, and her poorly behaved Cocker Spaniel, Allister, on their Thoroughbred farm, Fly-by-Night Stables, near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. George the Pony is a real pony who lives among the tall Thoroughbreds on their farm.
In 2016, Ms. McDonald decided to write a cozy mystery series. The Fiona Quinn Mysteries are quick clean reads for anyone 10 to 110! You’ll love Fiona and the quirky, but oh so charming, Detective Landry.
Fiona is a kindergarten teacher and an unlikely sleuth from Pittsburgh. If you’ve never been to Pittsburgh, welcome to this wonderful city! If you live in Pittsburgh, you’re sure to recognize many of the venues featured in the books. Ms. McDonald has even sprinkled a little Pittsburghese into her stories just for fun. Yinz will love it!
Hey! Don’t miss C.S. McDonald’s new addition to Fiona Quinn Mysteries–Fiona Quinn QUICK Mysteries! What’s that? Short Stories (about 30/40 pages) for a quick bedtime read or if you’re stuck with a long wait in a doctor’s office (we’ve all been there). Four shorts in all. Check them out!
Okay, now for something seriously exciting–C.S. McDonald has penned a second cozy mystery series, The Owl’s Nest Mysteries–Meet Alexa Owl. She’s returned home to Pittsburgh to start a new business, the Owl’s Nest Couturier Shop.
Much to her surprise, she’s getting more than she ever bargained for: Detective Bobby Starr, and he’s no ordinary sleuth. Bobby is an angel who’s returned to Earth in hopes of earning his way into the Guardian Angel Squad.
Only here’s the catch: he’s got to solve three murders he failed to solve when he was alive, and he needs Alexa’s help! This series has a little grit, a little time travel, a little romance, and a whole lotta cozy!
By the way, all of the Fiona Quinn Mysteries, short stories, and the OWL’S NEST MYSTERIES are now available on Audible–narrated by the incredibly talented, Maren Swenson Waxenberg!
Hey! You can check out all the books, listen to excerpts from the audiobooks and more at C.S. McDonald’s website: www.georgethepony.com
Review by Sherry Wilson:
Alexa Owl is back in another crazy time traveling adventure but will it be her last? This story has all the switchbacks, unusual and endearing characters and an ending that will bring tears and more tears.
Even though I had guessed part of the story and I think you were really supposed to, the twists and turns were fabulous.
Great creative writing which held my attention and I didn’t want to put the book down. The ending was a definite surprise and didn’t disappoint!
Detective Bobby Starr — gone, I hope not!
Fabulous read and Cindy knocked this one out of the park. These are characters that come to life from the pages that we get attached to and feel their feelings.
All I can say is please write more of this series. Anyone who picks this one up will be pleased they did
