Humor, suspense, and some serious social issues all in one not-so-cozy cozy mystery

Not many writers can combine quirky characters, humorous situations, and first-class suspense in a novel and make it work. Linda Lovely can. But wait, there's more.

“I don’t want you to see me. I want you to know me. I want you to love me with the rest of your senses.”
Polly Iyer, InSight

“How is he?” Dana asked. “Your name was the first word out of his mouth,” Clarence said, “so I guess he’s okay. He’s sleeping now.” “Christ, the man came out of surgery less than a day ago,” Jeraldine said, “after they took a friggin’ bullet from his chest.”
Polly Iyer, Murder Deja Vu

“Curious,” Russo said, “not interested. There’s a difference.”
Polly Iyer, Hooked

“I don’t want you to see me. I want you to know me. I want you to love me with the rest of your senses.”
Polly Iyer, InSight

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”
Isaac Asimov

“Every program that ever helped working people, from rural electrification to Medicare, was enacted by liberals over the opposition of conservatives.”
George McGovern

“Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.”
Mark Twain
