ExcerpTuesday - Morgan St. James

Welcome to Morgan St. James and Phyllice Bradner who are here with an excerpt from thier book Seven Deadly Samovars.


Hold onto your hat. SEVEN DEADLY SAMOVARS, the second Silver Sisters comical crime caper, is now available on CD and MP3 download from Books in Motion, and the paperback, e-book and Kindle will be released in mid-September by L&L Dreamspell.
This series features silver-haired Mae West lookalike twins Goldie Silver, an over-the-hill flower child who owns an antique shop in Juneau, Alaska and Godiva Olivia DuBois, a wealthy manipulative, wisecracking widow who writes the advice column "Ask G.O.D.' (her initials). The zany pair is joined by their eighty-year-old mother and uncle, former vaudeville magicians who love to dress in disguises and "go undercover." When Goldie receives the wrong shipment of antique samovars at her Silver Spoon Antique Shoppe in Juneau from Vladivostok, Russia, the fancy teapots sell quickly, but murder and mayhem follow. What makes them worth killing for? The main villains are the bumbling, but brutal, Dumkovsky brothers. However, many surprises are in store. Get ready for a good belly laugh, and lots of twists, turns and backfires until the twins and the elder-sleuths figure out whodunit.


Godiva sighed. “Well, I don’t know about that, but I guess it
will be a relief to get away from all the crime in L.A. and spend
a few days in sleepy little Juneau. Caesar would probably enjoy
“Um, Godiva, things aren’t quite as safe and sleepy as you
think. You won’t believe what happened yesterday. A young priest
was murdered, right there in the Russian Orthodox Church!”
“Yep. Belle was the first to bring us the news.”
“Why am I not surprised?”
“Well, now it’s all over the front page of the Juneau Fish Wrapper
and the TV crews from KJNO and AlaskaOne invaded the
church and sent old Father Innocent into a tizzy. Took three of the
worshipers and his helper, Rimsky, to get him calmed down.”
“Sounds like you’re all wound-up, too. How did you get so
busy that you forgot Mom’s banquet?”

I have a nephew who lives in Alaska so this sounds pretty neat to me. Best of luck with this Morgan and Phyllice!
