Hello! We are Smoky Lynx and Charlaine LeRoux, adventurers, writers, readers, merkin weavers extraordinaire, and cinnamon enthusiasts. While we write comedic, heartwarming, cozy mysteries, we like to read ALL the things. Well, except romance. Romance is most assuredly not our jam. We hope to bring attention to newbie authors like ourselves, mystery writers, LGBTQ+ authors, books that feature LGBTQ+ characters, and anything else we feel like writing about, okay.
So, a little bit about our books. Turrible Seasons: An Ermahgerd Merstery follows Kimmy Livengood through her seventh grade school year. You know, the easiest of all the school years. The synopsis:
It’s 1993 and Kimmy Livengood is so excited to start seventh grade; she and her best friend, Becky, will finally be going to the same school, she’s logging plenty of volunteer hours at the library, and she’s on track to make it to the regional Magic: The Gathering tournament next summer. Kimmy is living her best life and making the most of all her opportunities, despite her mild speech impediment.
When Kimmy goes on a back-to-school shopping trip with Becky and her friends, things take a turn when Kimmy finds a dead body. Was it an accident? Was it murder? Detectives Jones and Finnigan arrive on the scene to find out.
Now the Detectives must beat the clock as the bodies begin to pile up in the otherwise peaceful town of Spring Valley. The suspects are few, the clues are even fewer; will Carl Jones and Jake Finnigan catch the perpetrator before it’s too late for Kimmy Livengood?
Full of laughs, heart, and plenty of clowns, Turrible Seasons: An Ermahgerd Ermnibus will have you one the edge of your seat, craving a hot pretzel, and considering enrolling in clown college.
Comedy, stunt shows and shenanigans, and murder are our jam. So, you can expect that from our reviews as well. Except the murder. That’s just crazy.
We’ll try to do weekly reviews of what we’re reading, so stay tuned, okurrrrrr.
