What a roller-coaster ride and a fun ride it was.
~Bab’s Book Bistro

This is an engaging cozy mystery with a steady pace and enough twists and turns to keep you guessing.
~Christa Reads and Writes

The idea of a terrified detective intrigued me from the beginning, and the author wrote it so much better than I could have imagined.
~Book Babble

There are quite a few characters so there is no shortage of possibilities of who the killer might be.
~Storeybook Reviews

The suspense built nicely, with surprises along the way, keeping me turning pages till way past my bedtime.

Plateful of Murder:
A Terrified Detective Mystery

1st in Series
Cozy Mystery
Publisher: Ink Lion Books (January 8, 2016)
Print Length: 278 pages

Private Detective Claire DeNardo is afraid of everything. Simple things like balloons, roller coasters, and hairpieces make her knees knock loud enough to be a band’s rhythm section. Unfortunately, the only job Claire can find is working for her Uncle Gino in his seedy detective agency. Until now, her cases have all been middle-aged men with trophy wives who needed watching. But Claire gets swept up in a murder case despite being afraid of conflict, bodily harm, and hurting anyone’s feelings. She enlists a jaded security guard, Ed, to help her. But when Ed is attacked and left comatose, Claire must stumble along by herself. Both the client who hired her and the handsome police detective want her off the case. When the wrong person is charged, it’s up to the terrified detective, to summon all the courage she can to find the true killer.
