Picking Lemons
by JT Toman

Filled with zany, well developed characters, lively dialogue and plenty of suspects, Ms. Toman captured my attention from the first page.

Interesting premise for a new series….
Storeybook Reviews

Picking Lemons is a highly entertaining, rapidly-paced whodunnit peppered with snappy dialogue, witty sarcasm, and over-the-top characters.
~Book Club Librarian

You know a cozy or any book is good when you are about half way through and find yourself asking “I wonder what C. J. is going to get into next.
~Books are Life – Vita Libri

A funny cozy, well written, and rather remarkable for a first novel. The author has a knack for well drawn characters and I will be looking for the next book in this series.

A C.J. Whitmore Mystery

Economic theories can predict many things – just not the death of a renowned Economics professor. When Professor Edmund DeBeyer is found dead in his office, strangled to death by his own Ph.D. hood, the police don’t have to look further than his colleagues in the Economics Department for suspects. After all, Edmund was the most despised member of the department. C.J. Whitmore, the department’s only tenured female, (who also has a penchant for wearing pink cowboy boots to class) resolves to get to the bottom of the mystery using economic principles. Comparing tracking down murder suspects to to selecting a used car, she attempts to discern the real deals from the “lemons.” That is, which suspects are really telling the truth and which are lying to protect their guilt. Will C.J. be able to pick the lemon before her clever adversary strikes again?

About This Author

J.T. Toman lives in Boulder, Colorado. She received her Ph.D. in economics from Yale University and has taught econometrics at the University of Sydney and the University of Colorado at Boulder. She also has a degree in zookeeping from Pikes Peak Community College and has cared for everything from butterflies to elephants. She now teaches math at Front Range Community College, and truly believes fractions are useful in everyday life.

In her spare time, J.T. Toman joins the rest of Colorado hiking, biking and skiing. However, much like her cats, she finds food more inspiring than scenery. J.T. particularly loves home- grown tomatoes, udon noodles and tall glasses of chocolate milk, but not at the same time.

Picking Lemons is her first novel.
