Connie Caldwell was the captain of the Blanchette Hunters Varsity Cheerleaders. Her number two on the squad was a sophomore and first-year varsity cheerleader, Molly Warner. Both Connie and Molly were close friends going back to middle school. Both were dedicated scholar athletes. Some bad incidents that took place during the football season at Blanchette High School didn’t set too well with the squad and someone decided to dash Connie’s hopes of having a stellar senior year before college.
Molly becomes suspicious right from the very beginning when Connie wound up in the hospital. She suspected other varsity squad teammates and even students who were close to Connie, including members of the Blanchette Hunters football team. Molly also has to confront a very polar high school, which featured rurals, those who lived on farms in the county and townies, ones who lived in the poor neighborhoods and subdivisions surrounding Blanchette High School. Both groups created a school reputation as the most violent high school in St. Charles County, Missouri with the number of fights they had. Molly has her own problems, dealing with a mother who serves as the area’s state representative in Missouri’s House of Representatives and does not appreciate Molly’s role as a cheerleader and sometimes becomes verbally abusive to her daughter at times.
Can Molly find the person who hurt Connie before they harm others?

Tongues are wagging all over town about Big Lake’s newest business, the Black Stocking Brewpub, where the scantily clad waitresses are drawing crowds of men and the ire of local churchgoers. And that’s before the arrogant womanizer who owns the brewpub is found murdered!
Sheriff Jim Weber and his deputies have plenty of suspects to choose from as they begin to navigate the treacherous currents left in the wake of the murder, because the dead man, a person who seemingly knew no limits, possessed no humanity, and cared for nothing apart from his own greed and twisted desires, has left behind no small number of his own brutalized victims.
One reviewer has referred to the Big Lake mystery series as “Mayberry Meets Twin Peaks.” It’s a combination of humor and intrigue that launched author New York Times bestselling author Nick Russell’s first Big Lake book into Amazon’s Top 100 Paid Kindle books for over 78 days, and Big Lake Brewpub, the ninth book in this popular series, is sure to be another hit!

David Winter Mysteries – Fly Paper SoupKindle Edition
Attorney David Winter kicks back on the Florida beach soaking in the sunshine and watching the ladies stroll by. When his old Army buddy, Sean asks him to defend his aunt in a murder case, David doesn’t think twice and leaves the sun and sand for Missouri’s ice and snow to help his old pal. Seems Aunt Sharon’s past time was killing husbands and getting rich off their insurance policies. Not even Sean’s generosity—a BMW 528i with chauffeur, 100 grand plus expenses and a luxury apartment–all at David’s disposal—can save Aunt Sharon from the needle!
The more David investigates, the more accomplices keep coming out of the woodwork. When he’s shot, drugged and hit over the head, David takes it personally—but that’s only the tip of the proverbial iceberg! He faces a startling truth, which nearly destroys him and his faith in all he holds dear. But lady justice isn’t blind and unforgiving of those who shake her scales. As an instrument of law, David must once again become the hardened soldier honed on the battlefields of VietNam and stand toe to toe with unscrupulous prosecutors, and a judge.
5.0 out of 5 starsA fun readWhat a fun read. A likable protagonist, witty dialogue, a twisting plot and a cast of characters that come at protagonist David Winters from all angles. The prologue alone made it worth buying!
