Hilarious Senior sleuths — Grandma Mazur meets Murder She Wrote — cozy mystery.

Agnes Barton is not your typical senior citizen living in Tadium, MI, on the shores of Lake Huron. She drives a red hot Mustang, shops at Victoria's Secret, rankles local police officials, and has a knack for sticking her nose where it doesn't belong.

What does a murder that happened forty-three years ago have to do with missing tourist Jennifer Martin? Agnes makes it her personal mission to find out, and she's not letting the fact she's seventy-two get in the way. Butting heads with Sheriff Clem Peterson is something she's accustomed to, but lately Clem seems to be acting even more strange, making Agnes wonder what he may be hiding ala the Martin disappearance.

Agnes’ partner in crime, Eleanor Mason tags along, Watson to her Holmes.
Together, they unearth clues. If only Eleanor would behave, as although lovable, she has a knack for getting into trouble by tangling with her rival, Dorothy Alton, or flirting with anyone—male or female—and gossiping! She's incorrigible, but she does carry a Pink Lady revolver in her purse, one that has proved useful at times.

Life for Agnes and Eleanor is shaken up when Agnes' former boss and secret crush comes to Tadium. Before long, the lady sleuths have more on their hands to contend with as goons roll into town and bullets begin to fly.

Still Life With Brass Pole

Still Life With Brass Pole

Product Description

Craig is 16 when he returns from a drug-fueled visit with his dad in Miami to find his mom leaving town with her 23 year-old boyfriend. In the same moment, his dreams of settling down with his pregnant girlfriend are dashed when she is moved off to Texas by her parents. Left alone in small town Oklahoma, he embarks on a deranged, cross-country quest for a family of his own.

STILL LIFE WITH BRASS POLE is Craig Machen’s funny, debauched and heartfelt memoir about young love and coming of age in the titillation business. And how a roaring White Knight Complex, an eccentric comedy club owner, and a trio of unpredictable striptease artists conspire to help him achieve his aims.

REVIEW

"Still Life With Brass Pole" is the product of a great story teller with a great story to tell. Craig Machen’s earnest and brutally honest recounting of his teenage search for love and family is weird, hilarious, fast paced, upbeat and straight from the heart. An absolute joy to read." -- Curtis Grippe, The Arizona Republic

"Still Life with Brass Pole" has its own unique charm and is a read that should strongly be considered." -- Carl Logan, The Midwest Book Review

"Still Life With Brass Pole" is Craig Machen's remarkable memoir about coming-of-age as a strip club bouncer, finding his way amidst a culture of sex, alcohol and drug abuse, and dysfunction, and finally realizing his dream of becoming a dad. Still Life is above all, a story of personal redemption, and what struck me most about it was the heart, humor, honesty, and compassion with which Craig writes.”-- Jennifer M. Kaufman, Books, Personally & The Best Damn Book Blog

East of Orleans

East of Orleans

Product Description

Their worlds were different, but their desires were the same . . .

Isabella McCoy, from the banks of the Chattahoochee River in Georgia, was as naïve as she was beautiful.

Jacqueline Rousseau, the exotic New Orleans prostitute, was known for cruelly breaking men’s hearts while she emptied their pockets.

Both with dark secrets of their own, running away from their pasts, to an uncertain future.

Fate brought them together, and into the arms of the notorious cotton broker Jules McGinnis, who became both a husband and lover to them.

Jealousy. Passion. Love.

Murder.

Now both women must overcome the truth of their tormented pasts and their unknown futures, as they face one of the most scandalous murder trials Georgia had ever seen.

East of Orleans, is a 358 page novel.

It is the deep South in the 1880’s, a time when the South is still reeling from its bitter defeat in the Civil War, vainly struggling to live with post-war reconstruction. Meet Jules McGinnis, Rhett Butler reincarnated who has managed to transform himself from a Confederate soldier into a wealthy businessman by taking advantage of the broken South. Through arrogance and false conceit, he marries the woman he doesn’t love and loves the one he will not marry. Then there is Isabella McCoy, one whose youth was snatched by her rape by the one she despises, forcing her to abandon her dream of a life with the one she truly loves. And finally there is Jacqueline Roussea, a beautiful French creole “prostitute” fearful of true love who manages to avoid sex by drugging her clientele. In this epic novel, Renee Irvin paints a picture of lost love and desperation. If you have never suffered the pain of loss, never doubted that you took the wrong road in life, then this book is not for you. But if truly wish to embark upon an unforgettable journey, delve into a forgotten world in which the South was truly “Gone with the Wind, and discover whether or not true love will conquer that false love borne of desperation and stubborn pride, then this book is for you. Review by:Francis Fesmire (Goodreads) July 2012

"In the deep South of the 1880's, two young women, Isabella McCoy, a beautiful white girl from rural Georgia and Jacqueline Rousseau, a sultry, black French Creole who works in the finest bordello in New Orleans, are on separate paths in their unhappy lives. This epic novel takes us into their world, which is filled with love, lust, betrayal, rape, murder, wealth, greed, power and corruption. There are surprises at every turn as each woman copes with the cards life has dealt her. And then their paths converge when they burn the cotton fields of the man one is married to and both hate. In one of the most dramatic scenes ever written, the two women save the black sharecroppers' wives and their children from horrible slave conditions and their terrible fate. Isabella and Jacqueline's friendship is literally forged in fire and each must now fulfill her destiny.
Renee Irvin takes the reader on an unforgettable journey back to another time and place and into the hearts and minds of two remarkable women. She has seamlessly woven the numerous characters and story elements to create a beautifully detailed tapestry of hope borne of heartbreak and of strength borne of family love. An absolutely wonderful read from cover to cover." --Ann K Fisher
