The Chutes and Ladders by Marc Jedel: Review & Giveaway!

Chutes and Ladder:

A Silicon Valley Mystery
by Marc Jedel

About the Book

Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
BGM Press (March 12, 2019)
Print Length: 195 pages

Dead friend. Free fall. Girl Scouts. Can Uncle Marty untangle the mystery before things really get out of control?

Juggling a budding relationship, demanding job, and mischievous nieces, Marty Golden struggled to keep his head above water — even before his friend’s death. Trying his best to be a good boyfriend and fun uncle, Marty had his own ideas for the weekend until his cunning sister tricked him again.

Convinced his friend’s death was no accident, Marty tries to summon superhero powers but merely manages to bumble along as an amateur sleuth. When Marty’s cousin shows up, she wreaks havoc with his plans and pulls him into yet another mystery.

As threats blossom, Marty doubles down now that his family’s involved. Besides, it’s poor manners to let your friend’s death go unsolved.
Can Marty figure out what happened before a killer, or his imagination, gets to him?

Chutes and Ladder is the second novel in a refreshingly modern mystery series set in Silicon Valley. If you like clever humor and wacky side characters, you’ll love this twisty mystery.

About the Author

For most of my life, I’ve been inventing stories. Some, especially when I was young, involved my sister as the villain. As my sister’s brother for her entire life, I’m highly qualified to tell the tale of this evolving, quirky sibling relationship.
My writing skills were honed in years of marketing leadership positions in Silicon Valley. While my high tech marketing roles involved crafting plenty of fiction, we called these marketing collateral, emails and ads.

The publication of my first novel, Uncle and Ants, gave me permission to claim “author” as my job. This leads to way more interesting discussions than answering “marketing.”

My family would tell you that Marty’s character isn’t much of a stretch of the imagination for me, but I proudly resemble that remark.

Like Marty, I live in Silicon Valley and can’t believe that otherwise normal people would willingly jump out of an airplane and call it fun. Unlike Marty, I have a wonderful wife and a neurotic but sweet, small dog, who is often the first to weigh in on the humor in my writing.  Here are the author links: email (, website, FaceBook, Linked In, GoodReads, and Bookbub.
Silicon Valley Mystery (2 Book Series) by  Marc Jedel

My Thoughts

Chutes and Ladder by Marc Jedel is the second book in A Silicon Valley Mystery series.  Marty Golden is a software engineer with Rover whose idea of camping is staying at a motel with a comfy bed, mini bar, air conditioning and a television.  Unfortunately, after his sister sprains her ankle, Marty is roped into chaperoning his niece, Skye on her Girl Scouts camping excursion to Santa Cruz County Park.  After a little science experiment that led to the girls being covered in sticky soda, Marty is sent into the woods on a bogus errand.   He decides it is the perfect time for a B.I.F.F.Y. (you will have to read the book to find out).  While searching for a spot, Marty stumbles upon a body and is shocked that the victim is Larry Cohen, a poker buddy who works at Sirius.  While the police believe the cause of death is accidental, Marty has his doubts because of the strange burns on Larry’s arms and hands.  Since his services as a chaperone are no longer needed (don’t ask why), Marty has the time to do a little investigating.  At Larry’s house he is surprised to learn Larry was a hoarder, but it turns out to be a plus when Marty uncovers a clue that leads him to Sirius.  Sirius is acquiring Rover it gives Marty the perfect excuse to snoop around (sort of).  As Marty uncovers more clues, his imagination goes into overdrive. It doesn’t help that he is dealing with his skydiving cousin, a puppy channeling Harry Houdini, and a ninja (oh no).  Will Marty survive this free falling adventure?
 Uncle and Ants: A Silicon Valley Mystery (Book 1) by [Jedel, Marc]
Chutes and Ladder is a light hearted cozy mystery.  I suggest reading Uncleand Ants before embarking on Chutes and Ladder.  It will provide background information on Marty that is missing in Chutes and Ladder.  Marty Golden is a unique character.  He likes to wear Hawaiian shirts (all the time), a Star-Trek fan (there is an upcoming convention), tells bad jokes and has an overactive imagination.  Marty also manages to say or do the wrong thing 95% of the time (He is a twelve year old in an adult’s body).  When he stumbles upon his friend’s body in the woods, he feels he needs to get answers (it would be rude not to investigate).  I wish the author had included further background details on Marty (divorced, number of kids, age).  He always takes the driverless Rover vehicles.  Is it because he doesn’t drive or doesn’t own a car?  I have to admit to being fascinated with the concept of driverless cars (I dislike driving—I get bored).  I wish there had been more details about the service (does it work like Uber, cost). I enjoyed Marc Jedel’s descriptive writing which provides vivid imagery.  Bigelow, the puppy Marty gave to his nieces, provides comic relief.  He is going to need a firm hand and massive amounts of training (with no guarantee it will work).  The mystery was light weight (like Marty).  I would have preferred a mystery with more complexity.  Chutes and Ladder is an entertaining story with quirky characters, zany incidents, witty dialogue and guaranteed giggles. 
A Silken Thread: A Novel by [Vogel Sawyer, Kim]
Chutes and Ladders is available on Amazon along with Uncle and Ants (both on Kindle Unlimited).  Serf and Turf will be the next book in this high-spirited series (soccer fields and Renaissance Faires).  In honor of the tour, the author is hosting a giveaway for a signed copy of Chutes and Ladder.  You can enter below or click here.  Please take the time to visit the other stops on the tour for spotlights, character guest posts, reviews, character interviews and guest posts (schedule below).  I appreciate you joining me today.  Please consider following my blog (hit the blue button--upper right).  I will be back tomorrow with my thoughts on A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Kitty Confidential by Molly Fitz: A Pet Whisperer PI

Kitty Confidential (Pet Whisperer PI #1)
Welcome!  The Memory House by Rachel Hauck comes out on April 2 along with Half Finished by Lauraine SnellingFoul Play on Words by Becky Clark releases on April 8.  It is the second A Mystery Writer's Mystery.  I am featuring Molly Fitz today is who is also known as romance writer Melissa Storm.
Kitty Confidential by Molly Fitz is the first Pet Whisperer PI Mystery.  Angie Russo is a paralegal (who dislikes lawyers) at Fulton, Thompson, and Associates in Blueberry Bay.  She rushes into the office (late) and is asked to make coffee for an important will reading.  Angie plugs in the ancient coffee maker and receives an electric shock that knocks her unconscious.  When she wakes up there is a cat on her chest whom it talking to her and Angie can understand the uppity feline.  His name is Octavius Maxwell Ricardo Edmund Frederick Fulton which Angie promptly shortens to Octo-Cat (poor thing).  Octo-Cat is at the office for the reading of Ethel Fulton’s will who was his owner.  He states that Ethel was murdered, and he needs Angie’s help in finding the killer.  Since Angie is the only person who can understand the little guy (and he is quite persistent), she decides to help him. Angie convinces Mr. & Mrs. Fulton to let her take Octo-Cat home with her with a little psychological double talk.  Octo-Cat is shocked when he arrives at Angie’s home (it is not up to his standards) and is further devastated when he is given tap water in a bowl from the local dollar store (Angie’s favorite shop).  But if Octo-Cat wants justice for Ethel, he will have to adapt.  Angie and Octo-Cat join forces to prove that Ethel was murdered and identify the guilty party.  There is one little problem.  Octo-Cat cannot tell humans apart visually.  Can Angie and Octo-Cat accomplish their mission?
 Pet Whisperer P.I.
Kitty Confidential is a quirky and humorous cozy mystery.  Angie Russo loves to learn and has earned seven degrees from the local community college. But a girl needs to work if she wants to take more classes (I know the feeling).  She loves shopping at the local dollar store and her clothing has an  80s vibe (she really does not fit in at the law office).  After being shocked by the old coffee maker, Angie can now talk to Octo-Cat.  He needs her help in proving his deceased owner was murdered.  Kitty Confidential is a story that will keep you laughing.  There is one zany incident and unique character after another.  Octo-Cat grows on you as the story progresses.  I loved the cat’s reaction when he was served tap water in a dollar bowl (he only drinks Evian in crystal or Lennox).  Octo-Cat’s snide comments had me chuckling (and looking at my cats in a new light).  I like the author’s casual writing style and the story progresses at a speedy pace.  Kitty Confidential is one of those books that you need to suspend your disbeliefs and reality.  You just need to read the story and go with the flow.  The mystery is unassuming, but there is misdirection to distract readers.  Kitty Confidential is a cute, entertaining cozy mystery that will brighten your day and tickle your funny bone.
Terrier Transgressions (Pet Whisperer P.I. Book 2) by [Fitz, Molly, Storm, Melissa, Press, Sweet Promise]

The next book in Pet Whisperer PI is Terrier Transgressions which releases May 1.  Hairless Harassment is the third tale in the series and it will be available on May 30.  I appreciate you visiting today and I hope you have found a new book (and series) to read.  I am featuring Chutes and Ladder by Marc Jedel tomorrow. It is the second A Silicon Valley Mystery.  Please stop by then to see what I thought about this new cozy mystery.  Take care and Happy Reading!

Former reality TV baking show contestant and recent divorcée Hope Early is trying to find her recipe for success as a food blogger—but murder keeps getting in the mix . . .
When Hope’s elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire, she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having burned a pot on the stove while she was sleeping and filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the woman to live alone.

But it turns out she wasn't alone. When a second body is discovered in the basement of the burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder. As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to sort out the facts and smoke out a killer, but she might be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire . . .

Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!

My Thoughts

The Hidden Corpse by Debra Sennefelder is the second A Food Blogger Mystery.  Hope Early is a food blogger in Jefferson, Connecticut.  While getting ready for the day, Hope notices that architect, Lily Barnhart, who has been missing for three weeks, has yet to be found.  Hope is then off to a photography workshop for bloggers being taught by Cal Barnhart, the missing woman’s husband.  Hope is hoping he can help her take her photographs to the next level since she has been asked to contribute to a cookbook being published by The Sweet Taste of Success.  That evening Peggy Olson, her elderly neighbor, rushes over needing her assistance.  Peggy woke up to smoke in her home from a burning pot on her stove, but she does not remember doing it.  Peggy asks Hope to not tell her niece, Meg who has hinted at putting her in an assisted living facility.  The next evening, Hope returns from a jog to find Peggy’s house on fire.   Peggy perishes from smoke inhalation and a second body is found body is found in the kitchen.  The investigators soon find evidence that the fire was not accidental which has Detective Reid once again questioning Hope.  Despite being told to keep her nose out of the investigation, Hope whips up some cookies (it helps to butter up your suspects) and sets out to ask questions.  It appears that Hope has caught the killer’s attention when a warning note is left on her front door.  Hope has no intention of backing off.  Instead, her passion for justice has been inflamed.  She is determined to find the person responsible for killing the kindly Peggy Olson.  Hope needs to be careful or she could end up the next victim.
 The Uninvited Corpse (A Food Blogger Mystery Book 1) by [Sennefelder, Debra]
The Hidden Corpse can be read alone if you have not had the opportunity to read The Uninvited Corpse.  Hope Early is a divorcee who was a television baking show contestant until her life went up in flames.  She now has a blog titled Hope at Home which is doing well, and Hope has been refinishing her new home.  Hope also has a lively puppy named Bigelow (he is a cutie).  She has signed up to take photography workshop from Cal Barnhart, a well-known photographer.  Hope also gets wrangled into helping her sister, Claire get cranky Maretta Kingston elected to the Planning & Zoning Commission.  In the book there is cooking, chatting with friends, eating, recipe planning, working on her home, walking Bigelow, working on her blog, Hope dealing with her sister, flirting and taking photographs (charming cozy moments).  It was interesting to learn more about how a blogger markets their blog.  I had no idea that bloggers had agents.  Hope’s home sounds just lovely (I want it).  She is doing a beautiful job at bringing the house back to life and making it into a home.  There is flirting between Hope and Ethan Cahill, chief of police and longtime friend.  Hope also feels parks of attraction toward Cal Barnhart.  Personally, I wish the author had not gone this direction.  The story would have played better if Hope had just been a good friend to Cal during this troubling time.  The mystery had different aspects to it.  We have a missing woman, a fire, and Peggy’s death.  I like how they tied together.  Hope takes cookies and other edible items with her to question people.  She believes it will make them more willing to talk with her.  Hope needs to work on her questioning technique.  Her method ends up antagonizing people which makes them less willing to talk with her (she might need their help in the future).  Detective Reid is one of those by-the-books officers who frequently tells Hope to stay out of the investigation.  Hope is too curious and even the threat of arrest cannot deter her in her quest for answers.  The Hidden Corpse is a humorous cozy mystery with an intriguing premise, a simmering whodunit, delectable recipes, political intrigue and one adorable canine.
Pet Whisperer P.I.
The Hidden Corpse is available at AmazonB&NKoboGoogle Play, IndieBound.  The first book in A Food Blogger Mystery series is The Uninvited Corpse.  In honor of the tour, the author is giving away five (5) print copies of The Hidden Corpse (sorry but U.S. only).  You can enter using the Rafflecopter form below or click here.  Please take a moment to visit the other stops on the tour (schedule below).  Tomorrow I am reviewing Kitty Confidential by Molly Fitz (aka Melissa Storm).  It is the first book in Pet Whisperer PI series.  Thank you for visiting today.  I hope you have a fascinating day.  Take care and Happy Reading!

When You Are Near by Tracie Peterson: A Review & a Giveaway!

About the Book

When You Are Near

By Tracie Peterson
After her father’s death, Lizzy Brookstone, a trick rider in the all-female Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza, wants nothing more than to quit her role as the star of the show and live a quiet life on her family’s ranch. But returning home would bring Wesley DeShazer, the ranch’s foreman and the man who broke her heart, back into her life. In addition, the Brookstones’ new manager fears that Lizzy’s departure could doom the already cash-strapped show.
Hope grows in Lizzy during a stopover at Fleming Farm. Ella Fleming not only has a natural talent for trick riding and could easily replace Lizzy, but she’s eager to join the show to flee a forced betrothal. However, while there, one of the show’s wranglers is killed in a manner Lizzy finds suspicious. And during her escape from the farm, Ella stumbles across a secret that could affect all of their lives, as well as the future of the Brookstone Extravaganza.

Guest Post from Tracie

Introducing…When You Are Near!
I’m excited about the new Brookstone Brides series and had so much fun researching for the various characters and locations. This is a story about a fictional Wild West show with all female performers. Prior to the rodeos we see today, the Wild West shows traveled throughout America and Europe to entertain people and give city dwellers a taste of what the American frontier was like. At least their version.
Buffalo Bill Cody was famous for his shows, which brought Native Americans and their culture into the world of people who might otherwise never have even seen an “Indian.” Pawnee Bill was another entertainer who sought to keep these shows alive.

For the fictional show in my novels, I wanted to focus on three female characters who became a part of the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza for varying reasons. Lizzy Brookstone is the heroine in book one, When You Are Near, and as the daughter of one of the show’s owners, she has enjoyed a starring role as a trick rider.
For research I went to Pueblo, Colorado to the ranch of Karen Vold, a famous trick rider and rodeo star. Linda Scholtz, a famed trick rider, was teaching a clinic there along with Karen at the Red Top Ranch Trickriding School.
These are two remarkable Christian trick riders who have long worked to keep the sport alive. I spent three days getting to know them and what they do and learned so much. And just to prove that we weren’t all work and no play, I thought I’d share my attempt at trick riding. What I won’t do for research!
The series will have three books, as usual, and each book will focus on a different lady and her skills. Mary is a trick shooter like Annie Oakley, and Ella is a Roman rider who stands on the backs of two horses for her part in the act. It was so interesting learning about each of these types of performers, and I hope you’ll get a chance to read all three and enjoy the stories of the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza.

My Thoughts

When You Are Near by Tracie Peterson takes us back to 1900.  Lizzy Brookstone is a trick rider for the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza.  Her heart has not been in it since the death of her father earlier in the year.  Lizzy and her mother promised her father that they would finish out the year before heading home to their ranch.  Oliver Brookstone, Lizzy’s uncle, has been managing the show alone, but his brother’s death has affected him as well.  It turns out that the show is not doing well financially, and Oliver sold part of the show to Henry Adler who has sent his son, Jason to help turn around the business.  Jason is attracted Lizzy (and makes sure she knows it) who does nothing to encourage him.  Lizzy’s heart still belongs to Wesley DeShazer, their ranch foreman, who hurt her when he married another woman.  Wes has been widowed for two years, but he avoided her on the ranch and when they met, he treated her like a sister.  Is Lizzy ready to open her heart to another?
Ella Fleming has been promised to Jefferson Spiby by her father and they are to be married at Christmas.  Ella has no wish to marry Spiby who has a violent reputation, a known womanizer and is twice her age.  With Lizzy’s help, Ella stows away aboard their private train.  Ella will be twenty-one in January and then her father cannot force her to marry.  While at the ranch, Lizzy trains Ella to be a trick rider in the show.  Ella is grateful for the Brookstone’s help which makes her feel guilty for the information she is concealing from them.  Ella is worried what will happen when she reveals her secret.
Mary Reichert is devastated by the death of her brother, August.  She refuses to believe that his death was accidental.  The details do not add up considering August’s experience with horses.  Mary, a sharpshooter, returns to the show to get answers and justice for her brother.  Lizzy, Ella and Mary become close friends while training over the winter.  They are determined to keep Ella safe from her domineering father, help Mary get the answers she seeks regarding her brother’s death and help make the Brookstone Wild West Extravaganza profitable once again.  Come along to Montana for trick riding, sharpshooting, horses, friendship, love and adventure in When You Are Near.
 Mattie Goff Newcombe, professional trick rider in the 1920's (in my next life, I'm doing this)

When You Are Near is the first book in the new Brookstone Brides series.  I thought it was well-written story with strong female characters.  The pacing is just right for this story (not too fast nor too slow).  Lizzy Brookstone is a clever and determined woman who can do tricks on horses (wow).  Her father’s death has hit her hard and her heart is no longer in the show.  Plus, she is now twenty-eight and the tricks are beginning to take their toll on her body.  Unfortunately, Lizzy is the shows main attraction.  The show would not last without her unless she can find someone else to fill her saddle.  After seeing how her father’s death affected her mother, Lizzy is afraid to let her love someone that completely.  The author included historical details that enhance the story.  The Christian elements are woven into the story beautifully and I appreciated the Bible verses included.  One of my favorite phrases was “God guides us through our sorrows”.  I completely understood what Lizzy was going through since I lost my father three years ago.  What Lizzy needs to realize is that God is always there for us.  I enjoyed the adventure and action in this story.  There are characters for readers to love and root for as well as those we will love to dislike.  Tracie Peterson crafted wonderful characters for this series.  I like that there is a mixture of people from an English gentleman to a horse wrangler.  It was interesting to learn what went into to running a wild west show.  When You Are Near has love, loss, faith, friendship, family, justice and God.  I am eager to read the next Brookstone Brides novel.  
Wherever You Go (featuring Mary) will be out on June 4 and What Comes My Way (featuring Ella) on October 1. To celebrate her tour, Tracie is giving away a grand prize of When You Are Near, Tracie’s A $25 Barnes and Noble Gift card, and the three books in The Heart of Alaska series and three other winners will receive a copy of When You Are Near.  Be sure to comment on the blog stops (schedule below) for nine extra entries into the giveaway! Click here to enter. Thank you for stopping by today and reading my review.  I will return tomorrow to feature The Hidden Corpse by Debra Sennefelder as part of the Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour.  It is the second book in A Food Blogger Mystery series.  I hope you have a blessed day.  Take care and Happy Reading!
