Book Synopsis:

Meet Penelope Pembroke:
owner of the best (only) B&B in Amaryllis, Arkansas (pop. 5492) who’s
flirting with 50, divorced (Travis Pembroke, had a wandering eye'), mother of Amaryllis PD Detective Bradley Pembroke, apple of her father Jake Kelley's eye, best friend of Mary Lynn Hargrove, the mayor's wife, and the only human creature tolerated by Abijah, the 18-pound orange tabby who stalks the family home-turned B&B.

Penelope keeps her ear to the ground, her eyes open, and her battered heart in solitary confinement. Then one night, while having a beer and a Reuben at the seedy-though-popular Sit-n-Swill, she meets Tiny aka Sam who is about as much of a biker as she is a belly dancer.

She insists on dabbling in danger and disaster despite Sam's best efforts to discourage her. The fireworks begin in Book 1, light up the skies in Books 2,3,4, and 5, and end in one spectacularly explosive display in Book 6.

Book 1: The Bogus Biker
A police raid on the Sit-n-Swill, a devastating fire at her ex-husband's historic home, and a game of cat-and-mouse with Tiny aka Sam turns Penelope's placid life upside down.


I've loved reading since I was a small child, but never understood my mother and grandmother's love for mysteries until I was much older. All I could think of was boring British mysteries that put people to sleep. Then I discovered cozy mysteries with female sleuths. Judy Nickles is one of those authors that makes the mystery genre worth reading. I was amazed at how quickly I was sucked into this book. The characters are fabulous and believable and the book is an all-around good read. If you want a book to curl up with, grab a copy of The Bogus Bikers by Judy Nickles.
