Book Description:

The Indian Queen would risk torture and worse to keep her secrets from these barbarians in suits of metal and their search for cities of gold. They never found the gold. Empires rose; empires fell, the centuries passed. Legend became fireside myths, but no treasure was ever found. Yet, among the grey-green drapes of wisteria and wild jasmine along the misty shrouded lowlands of bayous and marshes of the Westo River, the folktales persist.

In the lazed creep of a near-tropical dawn lit the pungent Turkish coffee permeates Moccasin Hollow. Beyond the kitchen door Lucky, Craige Ingram’s German shepherd gnaws a favorite bone. Looted burial mounds seem a world away until plundered mounds on Moccasin Hollow land brings amateur archaeologist PI Craige Ingram into the cross-hairs of kidnapping. Stealthy hideaways are concealed in old colonial brick-lined river grottoes beneath the big house of Ardochy plantation. Sex-tape underage blackmail and thrill killings on federal land spur a medical examiner’s preliminary postmortem to more than a hired cleaner’s quickie cover-up passed off as drug deals gone sour. Greed tangles a witch’s pigswill of illicit affairs and murder-to-hide-murder. Shady investigators and shadier politics stir an unexpected concoction that threatens the lives of those at Moccasin Hollow in a spiteful plot against ex-SEAL Craige Ingram and the woman he loves.

  2. Laura FABIANI-Library of Clean Reads - Thank you for hosting Westobou Gold, Book 2 in the Moccasin Hollow Mystery Series. The galley for Book 3 in the series is in final edits as well as a sci-fi title also in galley. An earlier historical romance, Moccasin Trace, establishes the bloodline(s) of Craige Ingram in the Moccasin Hollow Series.

    Your considerations are much appreciated -

    1. Heidi ROBBINS – Thank U…I’d like to claim I edited the descript/book blurb that’s on the site, but I didn’t. Taking my editors’ advice/suggestions has always paid off. Not only the blurb but the graphic artist’s cover design touched base with all aspects of the tale told. Appreciate your comment –

    1. …and a turkey-wk good morning Mary PRESTON. Am re-checking last wk’s posting…it’s good to see U again. My editors whittled down the descript I gave them, & made it more eye-catching. Couldn’t agree with U more about the cover. Again – I can’t claim it as mine – I really like what the graphic artist did with the Westobou Gold’s cover/colors/background & the ready ‘gator. I’ll pass your kudo on to the publisher & his creative graphics. Thank U for following – it is much appreciated –
