Guppy Book of the Month - 1st Post - Pre-Meditated Murder - Tracy Weber

Guppy Book of the Month

Welcome to my first 'Guppy Book of the Month' post!  I'm very excited about highlighting the books that I'll be receiving as part of my very special Live Auction win at Malice Domestic 30.  Each time I receive a book, I'll tell a bit about it and also a bit about the author.  No promises as to when I'll get it read and my thoughts shared, but if it looks great to you, check it out at your local library or bookstore.  Some of these books will be debuts and some will be from authors already established.  So, here we go:



5th in the Downward Dog Mystery Series

Yoga instructor Kate Davidson is ready to marry her boyfriend Michael, so she's disappointed when a special dinner doesn't end with a proposal. But disappointment turns to dismay and outrage as she learns the real problem: Michael is already married and his green card-seeking wife is blackmailing him.

When his wife's body is found—by Kate and her dog, no less—Michael is strangely unable to remember where he was the night she died. Since Michael has no alibi, Kate steps up to uncover what happened. What she walks into is a tangled web of deceit, obsession, and immigration fraud . . . with Michael trapped in the middle.



Tracy lives in Seattle, Washington and is a certified yoga instructor, among other skills.  She and her husband have a German Shepherd named Ana.  This book is the 5th in her mystery series, which begins with Murder Strikes a Pose.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

I'm excited about receiving a mystery that includes yoga.  I've enjoyed yoga in the past and am curious about how Tracy works it into her series.  So, thank you, Tracy!  Good luck with your books!  I look forward to reading them!

  2. Sounds fun! From the cover, it looks like the book takes place on the Oregon Coast, which I love. I'll have to check this one out.

    1. I'm not sure about that. Might be Washington. Pacific Northwest at least.

  4. Nice cover--and how fun to get a surprise book. Yay for winning auctions! I got my yoga teaching certificate in Austin years ago, so a book with a yoga instructor appeals to me, too.

    1. I remember that you got your yoga certification in Austin. That's been a few years ago now, hasn't it? I bet you might enjoy this series, Jenclair.

  5. I am going to agree with every one else and say this sounds like fun. I don't do yoga, but have always been interested in meditation. Those elements in a book could be really good.
