About Tyler Colins

Tyler Colins is primarily a writer of fiction and blog posts, and a sometimes editor and proofreader of books, manuals, and film/television scripts. She’ll also create business plans, synopses, film promotion and sales documents.

Fact-checking and researching, organizing and coordinating are skills and joys (she likes playing detective and developing structure).

Her fiction audience: lovers of female-sleuth mysteries. Her genres of preference: mysteries (needless to say), women’s fiction, informative and helpful “affirmative” non-fiction.

She aims to provide readers with smiles and chuckles like the ever-talented Janet Evanovich and the sadly passed and missed Lawrence Sanders, the “coziness” of Jessica Fletcher, and a few distractions and diversions as only long-time pros Jonathan Kellerman and Kathy Reichs can craft.

Review by: Lynda Dickson on Feb. 09, 2017 :
Jill Fonne, a meteorologist and wannabe investigative reporter, visits the estate of her deceased aunt, Mathilda Raine Moone, in Connecticut. Jill is one of several people invited to stay in the "haunted" mansion for a week, in order to receive their share of the inheritance. If any of them leaves early, their share will go to those remaining. Then the bodies start dropping. Who will be next? And what is the killer's real motive?

The author dedicates this book to those who enjoy old-school whodunits. And what a great job she does! She uses her impressive vocabulary and clever metaphors and similes to create a creepy, yet humorous, opening scene that sets the tone and mood for the rest of the book. With a friendly ghost, strangely themed dinners, numerous dead bodies, secret passages, and a cast of eccentric characters with complex backstories, this book will keep you amused and guessing, from beginning to end.

When Jill states, "Let’s not get any crazy notions about quitting our day jobs and becoming private investigators," you know that's exactly what will happen. Keep an eye out for the next adventure featuring Jill, Rey, and Linda - "Can You Hula Like Hilo Hattie?" - in which they begin their careers as PIs in Hawaii.

I received this book in return for an honest review.
