1st in Series
Lyrical Underground (November 27, 2018)
Paperback: 218 pages
Digital Print Length: 280 pages
Welcome to River Bluffs, Indiana, a cozy small town populated with charming homes, close-knit families, and the occasional deadly secret . . .
House-flipper Jazzi Zanders and her cousin Jerod have found their latest project. The property, formerly owned by the late Cal Juniper, is filled with debris that must be cleared before the real renovation begins. But a trip to the attic reveals something more disturbing than forgotten garbage—a skeleton wearing a locket and rings that Jazzi recognizes . . .
Tests confirm that the bones belong to Jazzi’s aunt Lynda, who everyone assumed moved to New York years ago after breaking up with Cal. Soon enough, the whole family is involved, sifting through memories and rumors as they try to piece together what really happened to Lynda—and the baby she gave up for adoption. In between investigating and remodeling, Jazzi is falling for the old house’s charms—and for her gorgeous contractor, Ansel. But with surprises lurking in every nook and cranny, a killer might be waiting to demolish her dreams for good . . .
What is your full name?
My full name’s Jasmine Elizabeth Zanders, but everyone calls me Jazzi.
What is your Profession?
My cousin Jerod and I buy houses in disrepair, fix them up, and flip them. Seeing a beautiful, old house sit neglected makes me sad. Ansel Herstad, a contractor who’s even taller than Jerod and whose parents settled in Wisconsin from Norway, is a contractor who often works with us. We don’t work too far out from River Bluffs, though. There are plenty of fixer-uppers to keep us busy in our own city.
What is your current favourite book or movie?
I read a wide variety of genres. I get bored if I read too many of the same types of things back to back. Whenever Ilona Andrews or Patricia Briggs comes out with a new urban fantasy, I buy it, but my second love is mystery. Right now, I’m hooked on Lynn Cahoon’s Tourist Trap series. As for movies? My longtime favorite is The Thirteenth Warrior or the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice.
What is your go to comfort book or movie?
I love to cook, so when I want a comfort book, I flip through one of my favorite cookbooks—and I have a lot of them. My old Pillsbury Hearty Soups & Breads Cookbook is falling apart, so I have to rubber band it together. A comfort movie would be any of the PBS versions of Agatha Christie mysteries—Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple—either one—occupies me enough to help me relax.
If someone was to play you in a movie who would it be? OR what would be the character you would want to be in a book?
I’d want to be Kate Daniels from the Ilona Andrews series with a big, sharp sword and a “get in my way and die” attitude.
What is your ideal evening?
I’m pretty much a homebody, but I love to entertain. I’d have a few friends over for supper and enjoy their company. Then at the end of the day, I’d pop on my PJs and enjoy a good book. And if a glass of wine was involved, so much the better.
