Reporter Jazz Cross would rather work the police beat than go to boring society functions, but she can’t convince her bosses at the Galveston Gazette to give her a break. Instead, they have her interview a fortune teller, Madame Farushka. Jazz thinks the woman is a fake, but Mrs. Harper, her immediate boss, isn’t convinced. Thankfully, she and Nathan, the paper’s photographer, learn about some grave robbers, and decide to stake out the cemetery to see if they can catch them in the act. But what ...more

Ellen Collier's latest in the Jasmine Cross series! I read this book in the early Spring when it was still cold and gloomy. Ellen does what a good writer does best; she whisks you away to the time and place. You feel a chill in the cemetery when she and Nathan stumble upon a New mystery. You feel the cool night breeze on your face as Jasmine and Agent Burton drive along the shore. You identify with Jasmine's quest to be taken seriously as a reporter and a capable woman, while at the same time ...more

Whether you’re a veteran reader of this mystery series or a newbie, you’ll love this latest installment of the Jazz Age Mysteries. Moxie is the one word that comes to mind when I think of the strong, independent main character, Jazz. She has a lot of moxie! DDD has Jazz solving a murder with the help of a colorful fortune teller. This series allows the reader to step into the 1920s and feel what it was like to live in the flapper world and prohibition era. The details of the time and the ...more

I have just read “Deco Dames, Demon Rum and Death”, the fifth book in the Jazz Age mystery series, set in Galveston in the Roaring Twenties. It feels like the main character, reporter Jasmine (“Jazz”) Cross, is a close friend of mine, so it was great to go on an adventure with her. The mystery keeps you turning the pages, and the Prohibition setting and interesting characters keep you entertained. Well written and fun to read! I really enjoyed it!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy from the Great Escapes Book Tours. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Will Jazz save her brother, find a murderer, and figure out who the bootleggers are?
Deco Dames, Demon Rum and Death by Ellen Mansoor Collier is a delightfully thrilling ride set in Galveston Texas during the 1920s. The setting, combined with the attitudes and the slang used by the characters brought everything alive it was like watching an old

I love this series. Ellen Mansoor Collier is a talented author and she really has a knack for writing about the "jazz" age time period. The vernacular of the times isn't overdone. The balance is perfect. The characters are real. They leap off the paper and become your friends. You can see that the author has spent a lot of time on the plot and the history of the time, which makes everything significantly more authentic. Worth a read - you won't regret it. Highly recommend! Amazing work!
