Hung Up in Bemidji (Mystery & Thrillers)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: A rodeo company’s barrel man is found murdered in his hotel room. Retired bull rider Cooper Lydell reluctantly takes on the dead guy’s job because he needs money and misses the rodeo life. As if making himself the target of a 2,000 bull isn’t enough, Cooper must figure out who the killer is after another employee is found murdered at a rodeo in northern Minnesota. It seems his life may depend on it.

"Not so much a post as a boast: my book Bottomless Cups just won a Readers' Favorite book award for humorous fiction. Then, with a cover blurb from Melki, it was almost like cheating!"
