Amazon customer review - 'This series has it all, everything I want in a story and series...humor, suspense, and colorful characters. It's one of my top all-time favorite series. When Steve Higgs writes, he hits it out of the park. I find myself laughing out loud and often, which is rare for me when reading. This book's roster of suspects, witnesses, and victims are all new and Steve doesn't write a character just to have another body count, he writes each and every one to evoke some feeling, be it anger, humor, or someone you wish you had in your own roster of friends. I always say that each new story in Steve Higg's series is the best one yet, and this one had a lot going on, but it really was the best one for me yet.'
Fifty-three-year-old Patricia Fisher is a trouble magnet like no other, a sad fact she has come to accept during her three month around the world cruise. Wherever she goes, bodies just appear, or someone gets kidnapped, or she accidentally uncovers a plot to overthrow a government. Life certainly isn’t dull for Patricia. But when she arrives home in England, she plans to start a new chapter of her life. Of course, she has a case waiting for her: the murder of her former BFF, successful business owner Maggie Jeffries. It’s not the straightforward investigation she expected though. Maggie’s office manager has vanished, anomalous sums are missing from the business accounts, and there’s a mysterious giant following her. Could her past cases be coming back to get revenge? With a potential gangland connection to the murder, cops telling her to leave the case alone, and her dog, Anna, about to give birth to royal puppies, Patricia is in for one heck of a homecoming week. Oh, and she has nowhere to live, her car is on the fritz, her soon-to-be ex-husband is lying to her, and someone definitely wants her dead. She’s going to need a lot of gin and tonic to get through this case alive. This book includes Under a Blue Moon, a free additional full-length bonus novel from the Blue Moon series.
A cruise ship filled with gangsters, a missing woman, and a new head of security that can't do his job. What's a middle-aged sleuth to do? Patricia just wants to spend more time in the company of Alistair Huntley, the offensively handsome captain of the Aurelia who seems only too happy to host her. But as the Aurelia sets sail from Miami, it does so with a dangerous new addition: there is a mob boss among the passengers and he's on the run - from more mobsters! Any romantic notions are soon put aside when the mobster's reluctant-looking bride-to-be goes missing and Patricia is unexpectedly volunteered to solve the mystery of her disappearance. There's a cryptic ransom note where the missing woman should be and one of her bodyguards is soon found - with a hole in his head! Regretting her decision to help out, it's not long before the opposing mobster factions take an interest in Patricia's involvement. Someone has the missing bride, everyone wants her, and they all think Patricia knows where she is. With ever-faithful butler, Jermaine, at her side and perfect blonde, Barbie, to distract the men, Patricia will still have to go all out to unravel the riddle before anyone else turns up dead. Where is the kidnapped bride? Find out for yourself as you take another hilarious, action-filled voyage with Patricia Fisher.

The peace is soon interrupted though when another calling card is found. They have been turning up for weeks, proof that someone has been breaking into the upper deck suites, but nothing has been stolen and no crime appears to have been committed.

With her trusted butler, Jermaine, good friend, Barbie, and lame-duck Shane Sussmann, an odd-looking film extra she befriended, Patricia will have plenty of help as she unravels the truth. The prime suspect has an ironclad alibi though and there is definitely something going on with the film's beautiful female lead. Will there be more bodies? Will the new deputy captain be of assistance this time? Will Jermaine be able to serve tea at four o'clock? It's going to take more than luck to solve this one. Can she survive The Director's Cut? Praise for Steve Higgs: 'Be prepared to struggle with getting anything else done, as you will want to keep reading.' 'Truly delightful tales of mystery and misadventure.'

In these fifteen remarkable stories, M.F.K. Fisher, one of the most admired writers of our time, embraces the coming of old age. With a saint to guide us, she writes, perhaps we can accept in a loving way "the inevitable visits of a possibly nagging harpy like Sister Age" But in the stories, it is the human strength in the unavoidable encounter with the end of life that Fisher dramatizes so powerfully. Other themes—the importance of witnessing death, the marvelous resilience of the old, the passing of vanity—are all explored with insight, sympathy and, often, a sly wit.

Carrie Fisher: A Life on the Edge Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle
A remarkably candid biography of the remarkably candid—and brilliant—Carrie Fisher In her 2008 bestseller, Girls Like Us, Sheila Weller—with heart and a profound feeling for the times—gave us a surprisingly intimate portrait of three icons: Carole King, Joni Mitchell, and Carly Simon. Now she turns her focus to one of the most loved, brilliant, and iconoclastic women of our time: the actress, writer, daughter, and mother Carrie Fisher. Weller traces Fisher’s life from her Hollywood royalty roots to her untimely and shattering death after Christmas 2016. Her mother was the spunky and adorable Debbie Reynolds; her father, the heartthrob crooner Eddie Fisher. When Eddie ran off with Elizabeth Taylor, the scandal thrust little Carrie Frances into a bizarre spotlight, gifting her with an irony and an aplomb that would resonate throughout her life. We follow Fisher’s acting career, from her debut in Shampoo, the hit movie that defined mid-1970s Hollywood, to her seizing of the plum female role in Star Wars, which catapulted her to instant fame. We explore her long, complex relationship with Paul Simon and her relatively peaceful years with the talent agent Bryan Lourd. We witness her startling leap—on the heels of a near-fatal overdose—from actress to highly praised, bestselling author, the Dorothy Parker of her place and time. Weller sympathetically reveals the conditions that Fisher lived with: serious bipolar disorder and an inherited drug addiction. Still, despite crises and overdoses, her life’s work—as an actor, a novelist and memoirist, a script doctor, a hostess, and a friend—was prodigious and unique. As one of her best friends said, “I almost wish the expression ‘one of a kind’ didn’t exist, because it applies to Carrie in a deeper way than it applies to others.” Sourced by friends, colleagues, and witnesses to all stages of Fisher’s life, Carrie Fisher: A Life on the Edge is an empathic and even-handed portrayal of a woman who—as Princess Leia, but mostly as herself—was a feminist heroine, one who died at a time when we need her blazing, healing honesty more than ever.
