Présentation de l'éditeur

Kendra Louise Harper is a folklorist, avid gardener and accidental sleuth. All she wanted to do that nice fall day in September was to help her Aunt Jewel conduct a Natural Dyeing with Plants workshop for some ladies from the Nameless, Texas Garden Club. Before the workshop is over, a dead body lay face down in a pool of glass and indigo in Kendra's courtyard garden. The next door neighbor swears that he saw Aunt Jewel whack the victim over the head with a silver hammer.

No one else really believes Aunt Jewel killed Mrs. Bunch--that is, except maybe the sheriff. And he's the one who counts. He'd just as soon throw Jewel Moore in jail as look at her. But he has no solid proof; he's not going to waste his time trying to prove her innocent. He'd rather bide his time and wait for the murderer to slip up and come to him.

Kendra decides that if anything is going to be done to get her aunt off the hook, she'll have to do it. Along with Kendra's friends---a very colorful waiter at Do-Lolly's Diner named Jeremy, Deputy Jim Wyman (Kendra's love interest), Ginger Marshall (a local art quilter) and her friends---she sets out to prove that her aunt is innocent.
The victim, Mrs. Eula Mae Bunch, was not a popular person in Nameless. As Kendra gathers information, she realizes that Mrs. Bunch was probably the most unpopular person in town---for good reason. As one resident said, "That old woman is meaner than a room full of peckish wolverines."

Why is Kendra's neighbor so sure that her aunt killed Mrs. Bunch? And if she didn't kill her, who did? And why?

And there are other mysteries in town. Who chopped down Jewel's indigo bush in her own yard? Who is the inebriated stranger that shows up to Eula-Mae's funeral? And what does an erotic romance novel have to do with all of it? Tongues are waggin' in Nameless! Things haven't been this exciting since George Leroy Johnson got the back of his britches caught in the revolving door at the old Railroad Hotel and was pitched out the middle of Main Street with his wherewithalls showing.
DYE, DYEING, DEAD is the first novella in the Nameless, TX mystery series and features Kendra Louise Harper, Folklorist. 35,000 words.

Other short stories in the series feature Kendra, Aunt Jewel and the quirky residents of the small agricultural town located about 30-miles east of Austin.

Readers comment on other stories in the series:

"The real star of this clever short story is the town of Nameless, Texas (population 2,354,) where the people and goings on are about as quirky as you'll find. Bank robberies, a Thanksgiving celebration and a quest for a pork loin roast drive the story, but the characters are who you will remember." On Aunt Jewel and the Purloined Pork Loin

"What a romp! With quirky characters, secrets large and small, a town with a personality all its own, and a solid plot, I found myself smiling more often than not when reading Dye, Dyeing, Dead. I hope more books about Kendra, Aunt Jewel, and Nameless, Texas are coming soon." On DYE, DYEING, DEAD

"I loved this. I am Texas born and bred and this is a wonderful spoof of small town characters. This is in the tradition of the fabulous Greater Tuna." On Aunt Jewel and the Purloined Pork Loin

"Throw bungling cross-dressing bank robbers together with quirky small town Texas folks preparing for a community Thanksgiving gathering and you've got a quick, enjoyable comic read." On Aunt Jewel and the Purloined Pork Loin

"A zany story about a unique town. I just loved it." On Aunt Jewel and the Purloined Pork Loin

"A great read, perfect for summer reading, or a cool, rainy fall day. As a native Texan, I found much of the dialogue familiar and fun. The characters are broadly drawn, but definitely true to the Lone Star mystique. If you're hankering for an engaging mystery with an entertaining cast of characters, this will more than fill the bill. Dying to see what Chukran has up her sleeve next fo

5.0 étoiles sur 5 there's a mystery and a fun one in this story 15 janvier 2015

Ms Chukran has the narrative voice of a storyteller. When reading one of her pieces one can imagine she in the room and telling you the story in person, preferably at a kitchen table, and fortified by fresh squeezed lemonade on a summer afternoon. Sure, there's a mystery and a fun one in this story, but it's the characters, the setting, and the sly humor that is the real reward for for the reader.

What a delightful read! A fun setting, quirky characters with mystery, suspense, and humor ..... it's all there. The book is well-written without distracting misspelled words and grammatical errors. Waiting to see what Bobbi Chukran writes next.
