Welcome to Marriage With Style

Hi everyone, I hope you don’t mind meeting in my bridal boutique. You see, Henrietta Franklin is due in about thirty minutes for a fitting. She can be a bit persnickety and a regular faucet, so I don’t dare try to leave in case I can’t get back in time. I do love to talk and sometimes I find it hard to stop. You know how it is when you’re the unofficial AP for a small town.

Grab yourself some coffee. I have hot water and tea bags too. You choose. Now to why I’m here. My sister hijacked Bobbye’s blog again. You see, Trix is a bit out-of-sorts with Bobbye. Seems our author has been finishing another manuscript and not working on ours. As Trixie says, Marriage Murders is just waiting to be told. She figured it was only fitting I explain why. Okay, the plain truth forces me to fess up to the fact I threatened her beyond an inch of her life if she tried to sneak in here again and take over until I’d had my say.

Oh, my goodness, where are my manners? I’m Roxie Turner. Whatever lies my sister told you before, please ignore them. She’s still miffed I was the baby and got all the attention, not to mention I am only in my early forties while she’s twelve years older and facing senility. Oh, and then there’s the fact she’s married to Floyd, the Great White Couch Potato, while I am the gay widow. Gay as in happy, let’s not spread any rumors.

Now, as Trix told you, I’m sure, because she just blurts out everything she knows, our first book in the Briny Bay Mysteries, Buried in Briny Bay, comes out in mid-March from Turquoise Morning Press. The second book will tell the story of my lead role in solving the mystery of my marriage party’s murders. Why would anyone murder the groom, much less start picking off other members in the same wedding? It was a mite deadly for a while, but not half as explosive as my cat-war with one Marlowe Malone. Snarling red-nailed she-lion. That woman better leave my Greg Norris alone. Okay, maybe he doesn’t know the full extent of my affections and the fact I’ve laid full-fledge claim to him, but women have to keep their secrets, you know.

I suppose I’ve jumped too far ahead. First you need to join me as I get out of my tussle and a jail sentence for the murder of Georgia Collins. A fortune teller told me my life would be full of excitement, but she never told me what kind.
Whoops! Gotta go now, I hear Bobbye coming back with a cup of tea. She’s such a Southern lady. See ya’!

Welcome to the Happy Daze Diner

Hi, folks, take a seat in the Happy Daze Diner and let Trix get you a house special icebox lemon pie and some sweet tea. You say you just came in from the snow? Oh, that’s right, the South does have a bitter front going through. No problem, I have the Blue Plate Special too, slow cooking pot roast, mashed potatoes with gravy, and green beans made from some out of my very own freezer. Of course if you’re a vegetarian, not that I think it’s normal, I was after all brought up a true salt pork and ham hock Southern girl, I can make you a veggie plate. Coffee’s on the house.

Now for those of you who are confused, this is Bobbye Terry’s blog. She’s just busy right now writing the sequel to my sister, Roxie’s and my first novella, “Buried in Briny Bay.” I told Rox I was going to sneak in here and introduce myself. Trixie Frye here. As you can see, I own this diner. I’m married to Floyd Frye, my very own couch potato when he’s not working as a barber at his shop. Of course even at work he can watch TV, which does make me ponder how good his haircuts really are. Never mind, enough about Floyd. He is an albatross I have to bear. I shouldn’t subject him on others.

Now about Bobbye, she’s not much on publicity, which is why I sneaked in here, but my sister and I know all the ropes. After all, I have this diner and Roxie runs the Marriage with Style Bridal Boutique. Poor Rox, always a bridal consultant, never a bride. Okay, she did up and marry a fella more than twenty years ago but he ended up dead in the most curious manner. I don’t want to spoil the first book, so please excuse me for not sharing all the details. That feels a mite strange, cause it’s not like me at all. The price one has to pay for being in a book. Oh, well.

About the book, novella, that is, it’ll be in electronic form and published by Turquoise Morning Press March 14th. “Buried in Briny Bay” takes place in the fine town of Briny Bay, North Carolina, just off the Pamlico Sound. Normally, nothing much happens in Briny Bay, but starting with Roxie’s supposed alien abduction (not that I’m buying it) and now with the death of her nemesis, Georgia Collins, at the beginning of the novella, I’d say things are going to get a whole lot hotter around here.

Speaking of hot, did I mention we have a newcomer to Briny Bay, Greg Norris, hunky P.I.? He does make Roxie’s heart go pitty pat. But, I swear the woman moves slower than Floyd on Sports Sunday. Don’t know if she’ll even know how to move down the right path, so we’ll just have to see.

Whoops! Just heard Bobbye coming this way, so better skedaddle. Uh, this visit’s just between us, okay? *Wink wink* That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Bye!
