ELVIS AND THE MEMPHIS MAMBO MURDERS
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth
Webb has not only brought together two of the funniest amateur sleuths in recent years, she’s tossed in a king — well, a basset hound who believes he’s Elvis reincarnated into a fur suit — with a snarky sense of humor and a nose for trouble, who’s determined to keep his human mommy and daddy together — and alive — despite themselves.
Callie Valentine Jones and her cousin Lovie are tagging along to Memphis to keep Callie’s mama Ruby Nell out of trouble. She may be geriatric, but Ruby Nell has entered herself and her silver-haired dance partner in a Memphis mambo contest. Then a woman does a swan dive from the top of the hotel and Callie finds a diva floating in a famous fountain. A murderer is loose in Memphis and it’s going to take Lovie, Callie, her hunky almost-ex Jack and a basset hound named Elvis to keep Ruby Nell safe and bring home the mambo trophy. (KENSINGTON, Nov., 304 pp., $22.00)
