Bayou City Secrets - Special Purchase Title

Bayou City Secrets

by Deborah Powell
A Hollis Carpenter Mystery
One of the funniest, most entertaining, and most unusual mysteries of the year. Set in the cold winter of 1936, blunt-talking investigate reporter Hollis Carpenter has quit her steady job at the Houston Times rather than accept a society-page assignment. Newspaper owner Andrew Delacroix personally intervenes to dissuade her, as does his beautiful wife Lily Delacroix...but Lily has never before met a woman quite like Hollis Carpenter.

Then things start to really go wrong, and strange events beset Hollis. Her apartment is broken into, a friend is murdered and almost despite herself she finds herself hurled into the millieu of the professional investigator...and liking what she finds.

A refreshing, comical, and thoroughly engaging feminish mystery novel to be followed by the exciting sequel, Houston Town.
