Excellent from start to finish. A story that deserves more than 5 stars!
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The story is brilliantly written and flows perfectly. The author takes you deep inside the story and leaves you on the edge of your seat. I must say that this book is excellent from the cover till the end.
Drawing Blood is one of those mysteries that sneaks up on you – at least it did me. At first it seems like there’s just too many unrelated things going on, but at a certain point it all comes together and WOW. Brilliant plot crafting.
~Reading is My Superpower
CeCe is a great cozy heroine. Her life does not center around detective work … but dead bodies do have a tendency to show up in her world, and she uses the unique sets of skills that she has (which includes drawing) to figure out the mystery and the crime.

CeCe Prentice returns with her band of Dumpster-diving pals in this fast-paced mystery that puts the eco-friendly heroine back on top—of a pile of trash.
When Big Bob, manager of the town dump, goes missing, CeCe is worried about more than where she’ll score her next salvaged car. First at the scene when Bob’s body is recovered from under the weekly recycling haul, CeCe is quick to identify potential witnesses and provide crucial scene sketches. But when CeCe is uncharacteristically startled by an unidentified woman at Bob’s abandoned house, her artistic talents are challenged, and her drawings, much to her frustration, come up short.
With CeCe’s observational talents on the fritz, Detective Frank DeRosa, CeCe, and her network of Freegans are forced to recreate Big Bob’s life from the garbage up. The team is soon thrust into the underworld of recycling where what appears to be junk could actually be the clue that saves a life.
