Meet Luisa Marietta Gold

Luisa Marietta Gold was born and educated in Pennsylvania, where she spent a large part of her adult life and worked for a large corporation. After her only daughter was born, she relocated to North Carolina, where she worked as a Realtor and began running a recreational business with her husband. She currently resides on eleven acres near a lake reminiscent of the Rideau lake chain that provides the setting for The Osprey Cove Lodge Series. The series was born from her love of that region of Canada, the outdoors, and lake life. Many years were spent enjoying the Rideau, staying in lodges, and for a time, her privately-owned cottage. Among her many interests are painting, cooking, baking. And of course, writing and storytelling. But it’s the simple things of life that bring the most enjoyment — the beauty of the trees outside the window of her writing room as they change with the seasons and watching her kitties interact and play. Nearly all of these interests and life experiences are reflected in her books.

Mysteries at Treasure River

Mysteries At Treasure River I was running behind a potential story for my first ever field report as a journalist. A story that needed closure for the society that it was entangled in. It was a mystery that opened doors for more mysteries and forever changed my life, along with the people around me at that time in the small sleepy town of Treasure River. Unlike the articles I carve for public display, this book is sculptured to preserve the memories of a story that left me shackled prohibiting me from sharing it with the world. A story to remind me that every mystery that we try to hide comes with strings attached. Mysteries At Treasure River Mysteries at Treasure River is a SciFi mystery adventure novel written from the first person perspective. The person that was writing the story is a young journalist that is trying to get a big breakthrough to enhance the career as a journalist. The story takes place in a rural area and the people that this young journalist meet only displays the character qualities of humans that we meet on a short encounter. Because this is written in first person perspective the character qualities stay inline with the perspective of the writer. The reader gets the ability imagine the physical nature of the story teller with complete freedom to their liking and comfort. This is also extended to other characters and locations as well. The plot on the other hand have incredible twists and terns leading up to a discovery that is science fiction in nature but with a hint of reality lurking. It’s the small factors and points that ends with couple of sentences that really demand the readers attention. The book is about a 5 hour read with a nice flow where the different story line come together to form a grand out come. The pace of the story is quick on the other hand and have few moving parts which demands the readers focus and imagination. Hope you have a great read !!! Written & Reading Perspective: This book was written from the perspective of a young journalist coming home from an incident that took place in the past few days. Restricted from the journalistic way this young person puts memories in to words and writes this book for personally keeping the story of the incident from fading away from memory. A book that was written to be shelved forever out of the public eye. Just to keep the memories alive while they last and relevant. The following novel should be read in the mind space of a book that is written by a young journalist coming from a dramatic few days of investigations for story and writing that experience that was absorbed during those few days into paper to preservation of memory. The term “Botanical Warfare” is an attempt from the authors behalf in introducing a novel term where it meant the weaponization of botanical science for defensive or offensive actions.

Meet Nipuna D. Ranasinghe

This is my first time dropping my pen in the ink to write a book. In this novel I try to look at a SciFi angle that is not a common topic. This book is written from a first person perspective of a young journalist that went to a small sleepy town called Treasure River for a filed report. But when more he dive into the story more mysterious it gets. End of the day the law got in the way to tell the story to the world. To preserve the memory of what look place in Treasure River this young journalist did what is known by putting the story to written word. The reader would be reader would be reading the book as a books found buried in the young journalists shelf. The book is written in an angle were to preserve the memories and for phycological relief. The character that were met by young journalist in Treasure River was for the first time and for short periods thus limiting character back stories.

“Elise Sax will win your heart.”—New York Times bestselling author Jill Shalvis

My name’s Gladie Burger, and my Grandma Zelda says that I have “The Gift.” That means that I’m going to be a great matchmaker, and it probably means that I can know things that can’t be known.

Just like my grandma.

She knows who should be matched with who, and she also knows what the weather’s going to be weeks in advance. Some people call that a Third Eye. Some people call it psychic. Some people call it weird.

I’m betting Grandma is wrong. The only “gift” I’ve had in my life is not being able to hold down a job. I might have a commitment problem.

But I’m helping her out in the matchmaking business, anyway. So far, I haven’t made a match, and now after our neighbor across the street fell, hit his head, and died, I can’t stop thinking that maybe his death was no accident.

Maybe it was murder.

I may have commitment issues, but I seem totally committed to finding out if he was murdered and who murdered him.
The annoying Chief of Police—who unfortunately turns my insides into molten estrogen jelly—thinks I should be committed for sticking my nose in where it doesn’t belong.

Luckily, another neighbor is just as hot as the Chief, and he’s more than happy to support my sleuthing. Ditto my best friends Bridget and Lucy.

It’s a toss-up if I’ll solve this mystery, get killed in the process, get arrested, or find true love.

An Affair to Dismember is the first book in the Matchmaker Mysteries series. It is a humorous and romantic small-town mystery. Matchmaker Mysteries… Sometimes love comes with a few dead ends.
