Two new books are now available! Be sure to check out my upcoming book-signing events by clicking on the Upcoming Events link. Jump the Gun: An Annabelle Starkey Mystery Publisher's Weekly says: Children’s author Burke (Charley Harper’s What’s in the Woods?) introduces smart and sexy Annabelle Starkey, a budget-conscious fashionista with a yen for classic movies, in her adult debut, the first in a new series. . . . Crooked policemen, shifty lawyers, and scheming little old ladies crowd the twisty, screwball plot. . . . Those in the mood for a featherweight yarn with an amusing narrator could do worse.
LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review): Clues are neatly sprinkled through the story like bread crumbs . . . Quickly paced and so clever, Burke’s debut is a winning semi-cozy caper, perfect for movie fans. She never misses a beat with her light rom-com banter, multigenerational ensemble, and sense of fun.
