A Week in the Life of Dollycas

On Monday, the world lost a wonderful woman, singer, actress, and Breast Cancer Warrior. Olivia Newton-John. Well-known and loved for her music and for playing Sandy in the movie Grease, in the last 30 years she has shared her breast cancer journey and she fought a hard fight going so far as to start the Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer. It is so sad that the article I read: “Her decades-long fight included a partial mastectomy, chemotherapy and breast reconstruction. By 2020, she was facing stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, her third bout with the disease since 1992.” No matter how hard she tried she could kick cancer to the curb but she never gave up.

Thursday, Mr. Dollycas took Daisy to the vet for a check-up. We found out we have a little piggy. She should weigh about 45 pounds and she weighed in at 61 pounds. Aside from that, she is perfect and healthy. She received all her needed vaccinations and tests run. There was a little sticker shock when he received the bill but she is our baby. A baby that needs more exercise and less food. Something the adults in this house probably need too.

On Friday night we hosted our 2nd Annual Waupun Truck-N-Show Cookout. Our yard filled with family and friends for food, fun, and good conversation. A little after 9 p.m. the truck parade started and went on for about an hour. The trucks were all lit up and loud horns rang out along with some jake-braking just to make things interesting. I am happy to say everyone had a great time and we plan to do it again next year.

How was your week?

About Jamie Rutland Gillespie

Jamie Rutland Gillespie was born and raised in a tiny, country town in South Carolina. At the age of 18, she moved to a slightly larger town in the same state and still lives there. She spent much of her youth visiting the beaches of the low country and taking trips to the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee. The mountains were always her “happy place” and she still visits every chance she gets.

Jamie has always loved to read; she got her library card at the small library of her hometown at the young age of 6. She has a vivid imagination and has always made-up stories of places, people and situations that only exist in her head.

She currently lives in South Carolina with her husband, daughter and 17-year-old Yorkie Pom, who is her baby and shadow. She loves college football and has been a South Carolina Gamecock fan since birth. She also loves MLB and has been a Braves fan since she was a little girl, watching the games and going to games with her Dad. She is still an avid reader and enjoys writing, crossword puzzles, baking, and spending time with her family.

Special Guest Kris Bock – Author of Something Deadly on Desert Drive (The Accidental Detective) #AuthorInterview / #Giveaway – Great Escapes Book Tour


Something Deadly on Desert Drive (The Accidental Detective)
by Kris Bock

It is my pleasure to welcome Kris Bock to Escape With Dollycas today

Hi Kris,

Please tell us a little bit about yourself.

I live with my husband and our two ferrets in a small town in New Mexico. I’ve been here for twenty years, three times longer than I’ve lived anywhere else.

I originally wrote for children, using the name Chris Eboch. I have eight middle-grade novels (for ages 9 to 12) published under that name, plus over 100 books as a ghostwriter or in educational publishing.

Around 2008, I started writing adult romantic suspense under the name Kris Bock. Six of those books are out, such as  Desert Gold, which follows the hunt for a long-lost treasure in the New Mexico desert. More recently, I wrote six books in a sweet romance series starring the workers and customers at a cat café (and the cats, of course!).

My Accidental Detective series launched this year, with two books out so far. The main character has spent thirty years traveling the world as a war correspondent. Now a recent injury has sent her back to Arizona and her childhood home to recover. She finds dealing with her family and the challenges of turning fifty almost more difficult than the mysteries she solves.

What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?

The amount of research varies dramatically depending on the book. I wrote my first novel pre-Internet. Since it was a middle-grade historical adventure set in Mayan times, I spent hours at the library and museums. I’d also spent two months traveling through Latin America. (That’s The Well of Sacrifice, written as Chris Eboch.)

Now if I have a question, I can often look it up in a few minutes. I haven’t been writing historical fiction, which makes things easier too. A mystery might require more research than a romance, because the plot is more complicated.

Real life experiences also give me ideas. I’ve drawn on experiences interviewing a falconer, visiting archaeological sites, hiking in the mountains, and most recently going up in a friend’s two-seater plane. I blogged about my Southwest travel and inspiration here.

Do you ever suffer from Writer’s Block?

Not really. If I’m struggling to write, it’s typically either exhaustion or I don’t know what happens next. In both cases, I either take a break or maybe go for a walk to think about what needs to happen next. I do a lot of dictation during walks, because the rhythm distracts my body so my mind can work.

I also find deadlines and needing to pay bills to be very good for getting past writer’s block.

What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer?

Start writing! Don’t rush to publication. Take time to learn the craft. I’ve written two books of writing advice, Advanced Plotting and You Can Write for Children: How to Write Great Stories, Articles, and Books for Kids and Teenagers. You can find many more books, articles, and classes. Critique partners can help you stay on track. But nothing will help unless you actually sit down and write.

When you are not writing what do you like to do?

I enjoy walking, hiking, archery – and of course reading.

Did the COVID pandemic affect you and your writing?

It didn’t really affect my writing. I’ve been working from home for years, so things mostly continued as they had been. We don’t have kids, fortunately, as I can’t imagine having to supervise their schooling while working. My husband only worked from home for about a month. Then he was the only one in his office.

Living in a small town means we can take a walk and hardly pass other people. We don’t do a whole lot of inside activities except in our own house.

However, it was hard to not see friends and family as much. Online chats helped, and in some cases let me connect with new people or long-distance friends I wouldn’t have seen anyway. I think we are all getting a little tired of Zoom though.

If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why?

If I had a year off and unlimited money, I’d travel around the world! More realistically, I’m very much looking forward to a trip to New York City in the fall, for a retreat with writing friends. I’d also like to get to Seattle every couple of years, as I have several good friends there.

What is next on the horizon for you?

Two more Accidental Detective mystery novels are written and scheduled: Someone Cruel in Coyote Creek and Someone Missing from Malapais Mountain. I have a billionaire cowboy series launching in the fall with The Billionaire Cowboy’s Christmas. I’m writing a series with my brother, scriptwriter Douglas J. Eboch, who wrote the original screenplay for the movie Sweet Home Alabama. This comedy series features “Felony Melanie,” Jake, and their friends a decade before the events of the movie. Two books are out and one is written. (Find the first two books at Amazon US or other e-book retailers. You can check out the series with a free sample if you sign up for our Rom-Com newsletter.)

I’m keeping busy!

Thank you Kris so much for visiting today! 

Keep reading to find out about Kris’s new book!

Kate’s father and his coffee group are worried. Their friend Larry married a younger woman who now insists he has dementia and won’t let any of his friends visit. They’re convinced that Larry’s wife and her two adult, dead-beat kids are out to steal his money. Can Kate help?

Soon Kate and her unusual gang of sidekicks are unofficially, officially investigating. But before they can dig out the truth, a murder raises the stakes. Now they need to prove Larry is both mentally competent and not a killer. They’ll have to find the real murderer—without risking their own lives in the process.

Dubious diamond devotees and a dead loan shark. With the dad she thought dead suspected of murder, can she keep him from doing hard time?

Elizabeth Trout thinks she must have rocks in her head. After receiving a crazy call that the father she never knew is cooling his heels in the local jail, the newlywed graphic designer posts bail and invites him home. But the family reunion loses its luster when she learns her old man is under suspicion for murder after he was found near a corpse.

With the sheriff zeroing in on her dad and no other suspects on ice, Elizabeth starts her own investigation to mine for evidence. But as greedy gem hunters, fossil fanatics, and shady scammers run amok, she must race to solve the homicide before she’s the one shafted.

Can she prove her father’s innocence before a rough-cut killer makes a glittering getaway?

Hook, Line, and Sinker is the hilarious third book in the Ozarks Lake Mystery cozy series. If you like big-hearted but excitable heroines, charismatic rogues, and uproarious plot twists, then you’ll love Marc Jedel’s jaunty jewel.

Buy Hook, Line, and Sinker to get caught up in a carat of crime today!

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Elizabeth gets a freaky call from her “old friend” Trent at the sheriff’s office. A man was found in the vicinity of a dead body and he has been detained. The crazy thing is that the man is claiming to be Elizabeth’s father. A man she believed had been dead her whole life. To add to the craziness she bails the man out and invites him into her home. Her mother, of course, is caught in her lie and wants nothing to do with the man.

Alan Azucar is a shifty individual but Elizabeth wants to get to know her father better and she can’t do that if he is in jail for murder so she starts her own investigation. She needs to dig up some evidence to clear the man and she runs into a lot of roadblocks on the way. Will she find what she needs or will the real killer get away scot-free?


The author gets this story off to a good start and then we get to Chapter 3 told from Jonas’ point of view. Jonas had gone “fishing” with his usual cohorts who get in trouble way too easily. This time they were “catfish noodling”. I had no idea what that was but the author explains it very well. So well I read the passage more than once and then shared it out loud with my husband. The words of my grandmother. “Yeah, it’s all fun and games until someone gets hurt.” came immediately to mind.  I mean they blew up a boat in the last book, but this noodling is just too much, even though it really is an actual thing. I have the image burned into my brain and can’t get it out.

Okay now back to the rest of the story. Elizabeth and Jonas’s new home will be ready to move into in a couple of weeks and they are excited. They are also making themselves more at home in Jenkins which is home to some of the quirkiest people I have ever read about and had me laughing hardily throughout the story. But the hilarity doesn’t end there. Jonas and Elizabeth meet even more, shall I say, interesting people as they “investigate”.

The mystery in this story is full of red herrings to misdirect and distract but I had a ball following The Trouts around as they tried to pull all the clues together. Having her father as the police’s main suspect, a man Elizabeth didn’t really know, really was a wonderful idea because I felt like I as the reader wanted to know him too. Aside from the humorous theme of the story that was a serious part because I felt bad how Elizabeth’s found out about her dad and was extremely gratified by how she handled it even when it wasn’t easy.

Hook, Line, and Sinker had me laughing, cringing, shaking my head, and totally entertained.  I highly recommend every book in this series. Each has been a Perfect Escape. I am excited about the next installment but please, no more noodling.

About Marc Jedel

Marc Jedel writes humorous murder mysteries. He credits his years of marketing leadership positions in Silicon Valley for honing his writing skills and sense of humor. While his high-tech marketing roles involved crafting plenty of fiction, these were just called emails, ads, and marketing collateral.

For most of Marc’s life, he’s been inventing stories. As he’s gotten older, he’s encountered more funny and odd people and situations. This has made it even easier for him to write what he knows and make up the rest. It’s a skill that’s served him well, both as an author and marketer.

The publication of Marc’s first novel, UNCLE AND ANTS, gave him permission to claim “author” as his job. This leads to much more interesting conversations than answering, “marketing.”

Like his characters Jonas and Elizabeth from the Ozarks Lake Mystery series, Marc grew up in the South and spent plenty of time in and around Arkansas. Like his character, Marty from the Silicon Valley Mystery series, Marc now lives in Silicon Valley, works in high-tech, and enjoys bad puns. Along with all his protagonists, Marc too has a dog, although his is neurotic, sweet, and small, with little appreciation for Marc’s humor.

Cozy Wednesday featuring A Dish to Die for (A Key West Food Critic Mystery) by Lucy Burdette #Review / #Giveaway @LucyBurdette @crookedlanebks

Welcome to Cozy Wednesday!

A Dish to Die For!

National bestselling author Lucy Burdette returns to Key West for another delectable dish of secrets, intrigue, and murder.

Peace and quiet are hard to find in bustling Key West, so Hayley Snow, food critic for Key Zest magazine, is taking the afternoon off for a tranquil lunch with a friend outside of town. As they are enjoying the wild beach and the lunch, she realizes that her husband Nathan’s dog, Ziggy, has disappeared. She follows his barking, to find him furiously digging at a shallow grave with a man’s body in it. Davis Jager, a local birdwatcher, identifies him as GG Garcia, a rabble-rousing Key West local and developer. Garcia was famous for over-development on the fragile Keys, womanizing, and refusing to follow city rules—so it’s no wonder he had a few enemies.

When Davis is attacked in the parking lot of a local restaurant after talking to Hayley and her dear friend, the octogenarian Miss Gloria, Hayley is slowly but surely drawn into the case. Hayley’s mother, Janet, has been hired to cater GG’s memorial service reception at the local Woman’s Club, using recipes from their vintage Key West cookbook—and Hayley and Miss Gloria sign on to work with her, hoping to cook up some clues by observing the mourners.

But the real clues appear when Hayley begins to study the old cookbook, as whispers of old secrets come to life, dragging the past into the present—with murderous results.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Hayley taking her husband’s dog Ziggy to the beach and having lunch with a friend should have been a fun afternoon. But that darn Ziggy found an eerie treasure while digging to his heart’s content. Hayley couldn’t see him but she follows his yips and barks and finds him with a very dead body in a shallow grave. The man is identified by local birdwatcher, Davis Jager. It’s GG Garcia, a local developer who has been ruffling a lot of feathers because of his proposed development on the vulnerable Keyes. He is not fond of following the rules and he is a womanizer to boot.

Hayley becomes invested in the case when Davis Jager is attacked soon after talking to her. Since her mother has been asked to cater the memorial service for Garcia, Hayley and Miss Gloria decide it is the perfect place to catch a lot of the suspects in one place. Nathan wishes Hayley would leave the investigation to the police but he knows his bride and with his father in town his hands are pretty full.


Hayley and Nathan are settling into the new married life. They are so comfortable together and every word between them sounds true to life. Miss Gloria is right next door in her own houseboat and while Hayley is no longer living there they are still thick as thieves and make a great sleuthing team even if Miss Gloria’s suggestions can really be out there. Haley’s mom’s business is really taking off and she is always ready for a dinner party. In this story, Nathan’s dad is in town to lead some police training, and Nathan is exhausted trying to keep up with the man and maybe trying to impress him just a bit. All the characters Ms. Burdette has created are strong and gain depth in every new story. When she introduces a new character she gives just enough background and allows that character to evolve over the course of the story and beyond if they return in another book.

The mystery was complex but I was really drawn to the vintage cookbook, notes, and diary aspect of the story even before I realized their relevance. Soon I was totally engrossed by the story. The well-plotted storylines, the descriptions of the fragile Keys, and all the glorious food. Lucy Burdette is a wonderful storyteller and again her talent shines in A Dish to Die For.

I love catching up with these characters. I am always entertained by their daily lives and the drama that always seems to find them. I am excited to see where the author takes her character next.

Paul Bearer & Sons have two memorial services on the schedule, but three dead bodies. When Rusted Bonnet’s funeral home becomes the site of a murder, Cam Reddick finds himself as a prime suspect. To distance himself from the allegations, Cam must untangle a host of clever cons and mini mysteries, from corpse robbing to a fine art scam to a modern-day treasure hunt. Cam soon discovers that Paul Bearer’s more closely resembles a con artists’ colony than a funeral home. With help from his ex-wife and mother, Cam ultimately unearths the most devious and deadly ploy of all.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Cam Reddick had failed—as a husband, as a father, and as a professional. But now he is back in Rusted Bonnett, Michigan, and running his mother’s housekeeping business, Peachy Kleen, and trying to strengthen his relationship with his ex Kacey Gingerfield (who doubles as the village’s Deputy Chief of Police) and their daughter Emma.

Cam arrives at Paul Bearer & Sons’ funeral home to finish the cleaning before two memorial services take place. Instead, he finds three dead bodies and soon finds himself on the top of the suspect list. To try to clear his name he needs a little help because all he has found is a tangled-up mess of cons, deceit, and lies.


I had to refresh my memory a little bit because the first book in this series, An Au Pair to Remember was released in January 2019. That was done quickly and the author does give background at the start of this series too, which I appreciate. I am glad that Cam and Kasey have a great co-parenting plan for Emma. Cam has grown a lot and he has some good sleuthing techniques. Kacey is a strong woman who knows what she wants and needs and how to get it. Maybe because I am a mom, I love Darby and her quick wit. What I like best about all the characters is that they are genuine, people you would meet in any small town.

There is a lot going on in this book. Three mysteries running concurrently. The author does a good job of blending them together but I found myself taking notes trying to keep everyone and everything straight. Bodies, art, missing silver bars, the mafia, a twist here, a turn there, a setup, a takedown, all meld together for a fine story.

Readers are taken on quite a journey in Corpse and Robbers before all the clues fall into place and the mysteries are solved. It was a very enjoyable read. I hope the author doesn’t take as long to pen Book #3.

by Stephen Kaminski

The journey to the mystery’s resolution was filled with twists and turns, making for a satisfying mystery.
~Cassidy’s Bookshelves

A perfect choice for cozy fans looking for a fast-paced read that would be a little different than the norm. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

This mystery was light and easy to read and very entertaining. I’ve always been fascinated by funeral home storylines and the family who runs Paul Bearer Funeral Home is a pretty fascinating group. This is a good one.
~Books to the Ceiling

A fun new cozy mystery! If you’re looking for a quick, entertaining, unique cozy read, I’d highly recommend Corpse and Robbers!

Sunday Salon / Sunday Post – A Week in the Life of Dollycas – Weekly Rewind – New Arrivals

6a00d8341c93ee53ef00e54fcc4de18834-800wi

The Sunday Salon is a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

SUNDAY POST The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received, and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

A Week in the Life of Dollycas

It was a week full of tours but not a lot of reading on my part. For some reason, my reading speed has slowed way down and it is so frustrating. I used to be to have the television on in the background and read without a problem. Now I am forcing myself to turn the television off so I can give the book my entire attention but I am still falling behind. My kids tell me I am just in a slump. I hope they are right.

I did get to spend some time with the littlest grands this week and that always makes me smile.

Away from the blog NBC released news that has shaken the fans of Days of Our Lives, some that have watched the show from the beginning. After 57 years the show will no longer be televised on NBC after over 14,000 episodes. On September 12 the show will move to NBC’s streaming service Peacock. A new episode will be available to watch every day, Monday through Friday. Supporters are saying this is good because the show will not be preempted by sporting events or breaking news. But many people are up in arms because to see the show daily they will need to sign up with Peacock’s Premium service which is $4.99 a month. We had already had added Peacock to our television options so the only thing it means to me is no more fast-forwarding through the commercials. I do feel bad for those whose budgets can’t stretch one more penny which is why I hope after a certain bit of time the shows will be available on the free version.

How was your week?

Death a Sketch (A Paint & Shine Mystery)

It is my pleasure to welcome Cheryl Hollon
to Escape With Dollycas today!

I Love Independent Bookstores
by Cheryl Hollon

 

It’s already August! It is day 220 out of 365 days in the year 2022. Yikes, that means that this year is more than half done – how did that happen? I haven’t written down my goals for this year, but that’s another story.

This has been a year of change for me—significant changes. We sold our house and moved to a condo apartment in downtown St. Petersburg. Locally, it’s called DTSP, St. Pete, or the Burg. But in any case, we love the urban lifestyle and embrace the freedom that comes with owning a small but big enough space with a screened-in balcony for morning cups of coffee and dining outdoors.

I’m not the only one in my circle who has moved. A local bookstore that has been a champion for my books and a friend to cozy readers, Books @ Park Place, has moved to a new location at 6800 Gulfport Boulevard S., Unit #113, in the South Pasadena Shopping Center, Pasadena, FL.

I’m excited because their new location is much closer to the beaches and has a higher rate of walk-by traffic. This is good for a local bookstore. I’ve known the owner, Nancy Alloy, for several years now. She’s the perfect bookseller. She knows what I like to read and has several new recommendations each time I visit.

She also has book signing events that feature various authors ranging from poets, horror, self-published, rescue organizations, board game night, and movie book night. The store is on Facebook, and the bookstore phone number is (727) 388-9093

Another champion for local authors is a relatively new establishment called Tombolo Books. They have a curated selection of the best contemporary fiction and nonfiction titles worldwide. After a successful crowdfunding campaign, the owners opened a unique brick-and-mortar store in the Grand Central District at 2153 1st Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL.

Founder Alsace Walentine was the longtime events director of Malaprop’s Bookstore in Asheville, NC, before moving to St. Petersburg with her partner and store co-owner Candice Anderson. I was delighted to launch DEATH A SKETCH at Tombolo Books on July 26, 2022, from 6:00-7:00 pm. Visit their website.

The newcomer to downtown St. Petersburg is another type of bookstore altogether. It calls itself a bookstore with wine and a wine bar with books. They have coffee and snacks, too. You can work from the bar or meet some friends for happy hour.

Owner Terra Dunham worked for 14 months on the debut of Book + Bottle, a dream-turned-reality wine bar in downtown St. Pete. She opened two days before the mandated pandemic shutdown. The timing couldn’t have been worse, but she needed to figure something out.

They pivoted from in-house wine bar operations to a delivery service that offered two shelter-at-home staples: books and wine. Through tenacity and creative persistence, the store is thriving. I’m hosting an author event in August. This is their website.

I encourage you to visit your local independent bookstore if you’re lucky enough to have one within driving distance. The hard times are not over for these precious bookstores. Let’s support them in any way we can.

Thank you, Cheryl, so much for visiting today! 

Keep reading for the details about Cheryl’s new book. 

About Death a Sketch

In eastern Kentucky, Miranda Trent runs a unique tour company called Paint & Shine, but sometimes the peaceful mountains play host to murder . . .

Miranda’s business—combining Appalachian adventure tours with art and a bit of moonshine—is the perfect place for an outdoor sporting goods company to hold an employee retreat. It’ll be a challenge, but the money they’re paying will definitely help with building her new distillery.

Miranda has lots of teamwork-fostering activities planned, from sketching classes to Southern cooking, but the executive running things prefers a more competitive spirit. In fact, after the workers are split into teams, they’re told that only the winners will keep their jobs, and tensions begin to spike. Even after a participant is found dead, the contest continues—while Miranda starts drawing her own conclusions about the ambitious attendees. Now she just has to find the proof . . .
