But seriously, for those of you who live in Los Angeles and are fans of corporate paralegal and mystery writer, Sue Ann Jaffarian, she's going to be at the Grant Brimhall/Thousand Oaks Library on Sunday, May 16, 2010 at 2 p.m. with Sisters in Crime (this sounds like a group well-worth checking out).
The theme is “Cozies and Comedies: The Lighter Side of Murder.” The public can meet authors who treat murder with respect, but with a funnier approach.
Jaffarian's latest book in the Odelia Grey Mystery Series, Corpse on The Cob, is available now.
Amazon shares the following review of the novel from Booklist:
Jaffarian returns to her Odelia Grey series following the release of her first Granny Apples mystery (Ghost á la Mode, 2009). In this fifth novel featuring the plump California paralegal with one of the sharpest minds around, the mystery is a personal one, as Odelia tracks down her mother, Grace, who disappeared from her life 34 years ago. Odelia discovers that Grace is living in the small town of Holmsbury, Massachusetts, and, with great misgivings, decides she must confront her. Odelia travels alone to Massachusetts and accidentally reunites with her mother in a corn maze at an autumn fair. Unfortunately, she comes upon Grace crouched beside a bloody corpse. The surprises continue as Odelia discovers siblings she never knew she had and feels obligated to help them prove their mother innocent of murder. For much of the story, Odelia is on her own, working without the assistance of her various friends and husband Greg. The personal story makes this among the most satisfying novels in the series, but even so, readers will look forward to finding Odelia back in California, solving crimes that arise from her paralegal work. -- Judy Coon
I'm a little jealous of Odelia. The only crime I solved arising out of my paralegal work today was locating a "missing file" for an attorney - in the attorney's office.
