Ho, ho, ho! Tis the season to give and in the spirit of the holidays, I'm unleashing my newest book, Bad Day in a Banana Hammock.
Sure, I hear you asking, "But, Stuart, this doesn't sound very holidayesque at all!"
Au contraire, mon fraire!
Bad Day in a Banana Hammock is my first straight-up comedy. All wrapped up for the holidays in a snug banana hammock. No angst, no darkness, no horror. Just (I hope) dumb fun. Perfect for the holidays!
Santa gives and keeps on giving! Like the Energizer Bunny.
Banana Hammock is a cozy mystery. Sorta. Gone are teacups, replaced by male g-strings. A femme fatale using the (false?) name of "Kat" replaces the customary kitties. Comfy chats about food are relegated to spam and fast-food burgers. But it's a cozy, I tell you!
Here, this explains it better:
Zach wakes up with no memory, no phone, and no clothes except his
stripper g-string. And oh yeah! There’s that pesky naked dead guy in bed
next to him. Problem is Zach's not gay. Or a murderer. At least, he
doesn't think so. Only one person can help him, his sister, Zora. Of
course Zora's got problems of her own—she has three kids at home and is
eight month's pregnant with the fourth. So she’s a bit cranky. But
that’s not going to stop her from helping her brother. With kids in tow,
the siblings set how to find the true killer, clear Zach's name, and
reassure Zach he's not gay.
Full disclosure time: I wrote the book on a dare. A writer friend (looking at you, Meradeth Houston) dared me to pen a book about a vapid male stripper involved in a mystery. I did it. But it's his sister that's proving to be the fan favorite. Zora is a very pregnant, very irritable ex-detective who knows her stuff and ain't afraid to use a gun. Forget about getting her husband dinner on time...the game is afoot!
“An hilarious murder mystery romp. Ride along with Zach and Zora on this most entertaining of mysteries.”
-Heather Brainerd, author of the Jose Picada, P.I. mystery series.
“A fun, quirky whodunit so full of wild antics, it will keep you guessing...when you're not giggling.”
-Heather Greenis, author of The Natasha Saga.
“Bad Day in a Banana Hammock will have you wiping up tears of hysterical laughter.”
-Suzanne de Montigney, author of the Shadow of the Unicorn series.
Enjoy! (Um, I hope...yes, yes, yes, I'm absolutely shameless).
