ELVIS AND THE TROPICAL DOUBLE TROUBLE
It doesn’t matter where Callie Valentine Jones goes, trouble follows. This series is a joy – funny, charming, eccentric and with enough twists, turns and false leads to satisfy any reader.
Torn between two men (one of them being her not-quite-ex-husband Jack Jones), Callie decides to check in with cousin Lovie, who’s invited the whole family down to her archeologist beau’s dig near Cozumel. She brings Elvis, the reincarnated King of the Whole Wide World, who digs up a bone and discovers a murder as soon as they arrive. Callie’s determined not to get involved this time, but when Lovie and Elvis go missing, she must dig up clues, keep her mama, Ruby Nell, in line and avoid Jack, who’s ridden in to the rescue.
