Letter G The April A to Z Challenge #AtoZChallenge

Day 7 of the April A to Z challenge and you are joining me for my book character them, plus some audience participation below.

Letter G is for Garnet Sullivan in The Devil, The Diva and The Deep Blue Sea by Margaret Jean Langstaff


The Devil, The Diva and The Deep Blue Sea is a Garnet Sullivan mystery set in and around Punta Bella in Florida. It’s a high-speed explosion of words and action as Garnet tries to uncover the story behind two local murders.

Garnet is a reporter for The Indian River Times and has a nose for a tale as good as her very own dog Ringo, who is joined by Diesel after the demise of his owner. She shares her town house of dogs with the love of her life, people’s attorney Chester Dare who is currently defending an innocent grounds-man accused of the death of a fellow worker from “The Peaceable Kingdom”.

With a shocking second death, that of Uncle Tommy Covington and the more important loss of his famous barbeque sauce recipe it’s upto Garnet to sniff out the truth. But she’s up against a tight time schedule, a hurricane is battering the coast, sink holes are randomly appearing and everyone’s being told to evacuate. Plus she’s concerned about BFF Allison and her relationship with Sheriff Lance Dawtry, so much so that she seeks help from the completely insane Dr Fritz.

Margaret’s writing will take you to the edges of your literary prowess in what becomes an orchestrated oratory of words matching the Herculean force of the hurricane which pursues the galloping Garnet.

For my audience participation I’m asking readers to think up book titles using the letter G for the picture below.

A book title and cover picture can often make or break a book sale. IsΒ a book coverΒ eye-catching? Does the book title appeal to the reader?

Have fun creating book titles from my own pictures, you might even think about a genre they could fit.

  3. I remember when you featured Garnet on your mystery blog tour, Rosie, and I knew than it was going to be my kind of book – reading your review again as made me want to read it even more. As for the title what about a bit of erotica called ‘Steamy Moments’?


  4. Great blog posts Rosie. Lots of fabulous new writers to check out. My book title would be Dymond Gyser. Maybe about a gems heist ?


  5. Thanks so much for mentioning my blog and dropping by. The book sounds intriguing and will look it up. “The Deadly Vapours” would be my book title for your picture though heaven knows what the plot would be.


  6. I don’t tend to read who dun it’s, but am often attracted to a book by it’s cover, then read the summary to determine thumbs up or thumbs down. Right now I’ve got so many on my ipad and kindle it’s hard to even select one to read.


  7. Hi Rosie – the Garnet series sound like very good reads, and I guess if someone made them – tv series … very interesting story line ..

    I honestly don’t think we could better the sign “Litli Geysir” .. fun shot – cheers Hilary


  8. Geothermal Games – a team of eccentric scientists go searching for geysers, and much steamy mayhem ensues.


  9. Thanks for the introduction to Margaret’s book and for the shout-out!

    For book title: Steamy Destruction – a murder mystery involving a young park ranger, her tangled romantic triangle, and a missing heir to a fortune.
