Midnight at the Bright Ideas Bookstore is a fun, creative mystery with one banger of a reveal by Matthew Sullivan.
Emira Tucker is a twenty-five-year-old babysitter. She has no plans for the future, and in a short time, she will lose her health insurance.
Emira babysits for the Chamberlain family. Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain have two young girls, Briar and Catherine. Emira is tasked with caring for Briar while Mrs. Chamberlain works on writing her book. Easy peas, right?
Hey, it could be that punctuating dialogue is a weak point for me as a writer and it never occurred to me that I could just not do it. Maybe it’s all jealousy on my part.
The book opens with a literal bang. Miracle Submarine is on fire and we don’t know the extent of the damage until we get to court.
