I’ve decided to release my book on Kindle Direct Publishing!! I am working on formatting now and hope to release it very soon. It will be available on paperback and as an e-book.
To that end, I have written a new blurb for the back cover of my book and a new short bio. Let me know what you think.
When former journalist Jessica Hart returned home to the idyllic small town of Grace, Texas, she never expected to become a suspect in a murder investigation.
Jessica Hart’s life has taken a detour. Her journalism career in Houston came to a halt when she got laid off and her marriage failed soon after. A return to her hometown seemed to be just the thing to get her back on her feet. But, taking a job as a church receptionist was her only option. She began a lifestyle blog, Jess Sayin’ and settled in to small town life.
One year later, Jess was miserable at her job. That is until she got fired by the micromanaging church administrator, Sandra Dorian. Full of righteous indignation, Jess unleashed her fury in her blog. The next morning, the backlash against Jess was brutal. It seemed the whole town was against her.
On New Year’s Day, Sandra’s body was found outside by the church wall with her skull crushed. Jess is the number one suspect. Now she has to find the real killer to clear her name and find out what’s really going on.
Along the way she will tangle with her lawyer ex-husband, her feisty great aunt, and a former Miss Texas. The ever growing list of suspects includes a suspicious groundskeeper, a quirky accountant, and Sandra’s husband with a secret he wants to keep hidden.
Before too long, there’s another body found at the church. Can Jess crack the case before the killer cracks her in the head?
Cherry Northcutt was born and raised in Texas and loves visiting small towns to shop for antiques. She worked as a freelance features writer for a number of local publications before branching out into fiction. When she’s not writing she can be found on the patio reading a mystery. Cherry lives near Houston with her husband, their two children and a very opinionated cat.
