When her marriage goes belly up and Alex Jordan finds herself back in her hometown of Minter, she figures the worst she’ll have to deal with is the fixer-upper house she’s stuck with and the unending disapproval of her mother. Instead, her brother and her high school crush end up on the wrong end of a murder investigation, and the only way Alex can help them is to team up with a convicted felon. More

About Sonnjea Blackwell

I grew up thinking I'd be a writer someday. I spent a lot of time not being a writer while I waited for someday to arrive. Finally, on the plane ride home from New York after my sister’s wedding, I decided it was time to start writing. I waited till we landed, then went to work as a “real” writer.

Turns out, being a real writer comes with petty annoyances like real writer’s block and a perpetual lack of real financial security. So I started writing web content to deal with the financial security issue. And I discovered improv comedy as a means of alleviating the writer’s block.

Luckily, I live in southern California, where everybody and their grandma wants to be an actor, so improv classes are easy to come by. I studied with Held2gether, Groundlings, Upright Citizens Brigade and The Second City. Pretty soon I was performing, and then I started teaching improv to anyone who would sit still long enough to let me. I’ve also written for, performed with and directed the sketch comedy troupes 3 Square: the series and Held2gether - the Series.

Now it’s hard to say which is more important to me, writing or improv, but it doesn’t matter anymore because in my world one can’t exist without the other. My world is pretty awesome.

Review by: Marla Bradeen on July 23, 2014 :
In HOME FREE, mystery and humor combine to create a thoroughly entertaining story. Set in a small town, the heroine is zany and likeable, and the supporting characters nicely round out the cast. The foul language can be a bit much at times, but readers who favor chick-lit mysteries and aren't sensitive to obscenities will likely enjoy this book.

I completely, utterly, thoroughly enjoyed this book! Sonnjea Blackwell has brilliantly witty prose, that had me laughing out loud; and characters that you can't help but love (and some, loathe!). It is incredibly well-written, with nary a grammatical mistake.
In fact, I signed up onto Smashwords just so I could express my love for this book!
Definitely will be reading Sonnjea's other books.

My first book by Sonnjea Blackwell. Great book. Sharp, funny, witty, taught mistery. I am looking forward to read more about Alex Jordan.
However the book had ONE HUGE MISTAKE. I understand Sonnjea was born in the East Bay, but Alex should have placed her ponytail hair through the back hole of a SF GIANTS cap and wear a red & gold 49rs shirt. ;)
