While this doesn’t include my usual Thursday home care tip, I ‘discovered’ the delightful Ms. Jacobson through her blog The Cynical Sailor and His Salty Sidekick. Dear Ellen is a hoot, and her comedic styling shines in her new book, “Murder at the Marina”, which I was privileged to read early in exchange for a fair review. I’ll be sharing that in a few days. Now, as I requested a story for today’s book promotion, I’ll let her take it away. Enjoy, dear readers.

Simon opened his eyes, yawned, and stretched his front paws, sinking his claws into the couch.
“Wait a minute, where are we?” he asked, peering around the room. “This doesn't look like where I fell asleep.”
“Oh, we're at Darla's,” I explained.
Simon sniffed the throw cushions, then growled. “Who the heck is Darla?”
“Darla has a lovely blog and offered to host us to celebrate the release of my cozy mystery, Murder at the Marina.”
“You're not still going on about that stupid book of yours, are you?” Simon jumped on the coffee table and pushed a pen onto the floor. He turned and glared at me. “Listen, lady, no one cares that you wrote a book. All they care about are your stories about me.”
I sighed. “Simon, for the last time, I'm not going to write a book about you. You'll have to be content with the occasional story on my blog.”
Simon's tail swished back and forth. “If you keep it up, lady, I might just stay at Darla's permanently.”
“I'm not sure she'd have you,” I said. “Now just be quiet for a few minutes while I tell everyone about Murder at the Marina and then I'll get you a saucer of full-fat milk.”
Murder at the Marina is the first in the new lighthearted and humorous Mollie McGhie Sailing Mystery series.
A dilapidated sailboat for your anniversary—not very romantic. A dead body on board—even worse.
Mollie McGhie is hoping for diamonds for her tenth wedding anniversary. Instead, her husband presents her with a dilapidated sailboat. Just one problem—she doesn’t know anything about boats, nor does she want to.
When Mollie discovers someone murdered on board, she hopes it will convince her husband that owning a boat is a bad idea. Unfortunately, he’s more determined than ever to fix the boat up and set out to sea.
Mollie finds herself drawn into the tight-knit community living at Palm Tree Marina in Coconut Cove, a small town on the Florida coast. She uncovers a crime ring dealing in stolen marine equipment, investigates an alien abduction, eats way too many chocolate bars, adopts a cat, and learns far more about sailing than she ever wanted to.
Can Mollie discover who the murderer is before her nosiness gets her killed?
