A Dead Red Oleander (The Dead Red Mystery series)

“Janet Evanovich meets aero-ag pilots.” Emily Anderson for The Kindle Book Review

When a late in the season emergency forces Lalla Bains to accept a greenhorn ag pilot for her dad’s cropdusting business, she sighs in relief. After all, he comes highly recommended, his physical is spotless, and with a name like Dewey Treat, what could possibly go wrong?

Then her quirky relatives arrive from Texas and things go south in a hurry: Dewey Treat drops dead, his tearful widow claims he was murdered, clobbers Sherriff Caleb Stone with his own gun, and makes a run for it. Lalla, convinced the widow is innocent, sets out to prove it—against the express wishes of fiancé Caleb Stone.

Feds, local law, suspicious ag-pilots, nutso relatives, and her daddy’s new sidekick, Bruce the goat, make life a living hell for Lalla. Will her nosey nature solve the crime and save the day? Or put them all in mortal danger?

“A compelling mystery coupled with quirky characters gifts the reader with a humorous tale that makes a delightful read. I was pleased to find that this was one of a series of which I will surely read more.” Justakid, Amazon 5 star review
