June Shaw lives along a lazy bayou in south Louisiana. She became a young widow with five children, completed a college degree, and started teaching junior high students, then her deferred dream of becoming a writer took hold. Her first novel, Relative Danger, was nominated by Deadly Ink for their new David award for Best Mystery of the Year. Harlequin reprinted it, and Books in Motion bought audio rights. Killer Cousins is her second book. June represents Louisiana on the board of the southwest chapter of Mystery Writers of America.
Every year romance seems to be the most popular fiction genre. Mysteries come next. What about combining both in the same books?
That is what I like to read, thus what I like to write. Oh, and be sure to add some humor because I love to laugh. And that’s the type of book I like to read most and write. That’s why the third book in my series of humorous romantic mysteries can be ordered now. Most readers say they’re fun. Women want to be my main character. (So do I; she’s my idol; she’ll say or do anything she pleases. Love that!)
And most women want me to make sure to keep my main character’s hunky lover, Gil Thurman. (Oh, yeah, I want him, too!) He is the man the widowed heroine keeps trying to avoid while she tries to rediscover herself, but he opens Cajun restaurants wherever she travels—and she is so bad at avoiding tempting dishes and men.
In this book she joins high school classmates she hasn’t seen in decades for a class reunion aboard a cruise ship in Alaska. People she thought she knew well in school seem to hide secrets and lies—and some must die. Of course her hunky dude has to show up and cause her more strife and temptation—and there’s humor and laughter. All in all, it’s a fun sexy read placed in a whodunit.
What about you? What do you enjoy reading most? Do you like romance? Mystery? Humor?
You can find them all in my books Relative Danger and Killer Cousins (now available as e-books) and Deadly Reunion. I hope you will and that you’ll let me know how you like them and about other humorous romantic mysteries you enjoy!
