Book Tour: A Dead Red Alibi by RP Dahlke!

I am so happy to be a Tour host for R. P. Dahlke. She is a talented writer. I know because I’ve read ? and I intend to read all her books.

Dead red alibi (2)

A successful, but reclusive young artist with a secret life.

A wannabe lawman and his dotty gun-toting granddad

An abandoned mine pit

A curious dad and a very dead police chief

When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new property, Dad disappears. Thankfully, Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker and finds him unharmed, but in the bottom of a mine pit. Unfortunately, he’s got company–a local police chief, and it looks like he’s been murdered. Then too, a young woman artist living nearby has also been murdered. What’re the chances that these two murders are going to be related? Well, if you’re Lalla Bains, you don’t guess, you start looking for the killer!

And here’s a small snippet just for you. Enjoy:

I tried to refuse the gift she shoved into my hand, but as if to keep the envelope from escaping, she closed her wrinkled hands over mine. “This was always meant for you. Open it.”

I read and reread the document, then looked up, laughed and put my arms around her small, bony shoulders. “You’re absolutely right, Aunt Mae. You couldn’t have given me a better gift if you tried.”

Too short to read over my shoulder, Cousin Pearlie reached up and grabbed the document out of my hands.

“Oh that old thing,” she said. “It’s way out in the middle of nowheresville. What would you do there, anyways?”

“Think. Not think. Take long walks. Whatever I want.”

Though my cousin Pearlie appeared to be a man-crazy, plump piece of blond and pink taffy, I had recently discovered that she was also smart, independent, clear headed, and when I needed her most, a crack shot with a handgun. Unfortunately, it was times like this when old habits crowded in front of her better judgment.

From the mouth of R. P. Dahlke

I sort of fell into the job of running a crop-dusting business when my dad decided he’d rather go on a cruise than take another season of lazy pilots, missing flaggers, testy farmers and horrific hours. After two years at the helm, I handed him back the keys and fled to a city without any of the above. And no, I was never a crop-duster.

My Lalla Bains series is about a tall, blond and beautiful ex-model turned crop-duster who, to quote Lalla Bains, has “been married so many times they oughta revoke my license.” Lalla is no Danielle Steele character & she’s not afraid of chipping her manicure. Scratch that, the girl doesn’t have time for a manicure what with herding a bunch of recalcitrant pilots and juggling work orders just to keep her father’s flagging business alive.

    I love this. Just a few taps on the keyboard and I am visiting two wonderful authors in Australia. I bought and read Dead Red Cadillac. A fab book to cozy up to fireplace with. I so enjoyed it.
