51vtl3xqRJL

After graduating from the crime scene investigator course, Laura and Gerry escape for some quality time in Jamaica. As usual, things are not going according to Hoyle for Cookie the corpse magnet as another murder takes place. The victim was obnoxious and not widely admired by his fellow vacationers, but what did Donovan Mitchell do to deserve death?

review

There were several twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting and that attests to the author’s ability to weave a great mystery novel. Laura and Gerry are your typical Canadians, willing to help out in a pinch even if they’re not asked. This makes them loveable to the readers but annoying to the criminal element. They, particularly Laura, put their lives on the line and get in the crosshairs of a dangerous drug cartel to solve the murder of someone they didn’t even like. That’s so Canadian by the way! Anyway, I gave Jamaica Dead 5 stars yuh dun know (of course).

about the author

Karen Vaughan lives in Peterborough, Ontario with her husband Jim and a cat named JJ who has plenty of catitude! Karen started her literary journey in 2005 when she was home on sick leave and was tired of staring at the four walls or twiddling her thumbs. An idea for what would become DEAD ON ARRIVAL popped into her head and the feisty 30 something character Laura wouldn’t leave her alone til her story was written. Laura took a break from pestering the poor author so she could write a free-standing novel DEAD COMIC STANDING. Soon Laura was on the campaign to get Karen back to what would become the Laura and Gerry series. It now has 7 books, the latest being DEAD TO WRITES. Karen is the proud mom of one, step-mom of 4 grown kids, and 2 grandchildren. While not writing her fingers to the bone she hosts WRITERS ROUNDTABLE, an online radio show the second Tuesday of each month. She is also a partner with Viv Drewa in OWL & PUSSYCAT PROMOTIONS. promoting independent authors. Karen is also a standup comedian who does her routine for local talent nights. She also loves reading, crafts, and drawing.
