Today we have Bobbye Terry participating with an excerpt from her new book Buried in Briny Bay.  It's due out next month and you're getting a sneak peak.  If you like this post, please leave a comment when you finish reading.

Parking in the underground parking lot, Trixie and Roxie took the elevator up to the hotel lobby and strode toward the front desk, attempting to appear nonchalant. “Excuse me,” Trixie said to the short bald man with his back to them, “My name’s Nancy…Drew and this is my sister, Nora…Charles. Could we ask you a question?”

He turned, wearing glasses so thick Trixie wondered how the poor man could see anything. “Yes ma’am. A room?”

“Not right now. Actually, a friend of ours is registered here, but he forgot to give us the room number. Frank Albright? About five-ten, sandy hair?”

The man nodded. “He does have a lot of friends. He’s been up there for the last hour or so. Room 225, ladies, one floor up, to the right and right next to the ice machine.”

Thanking him, they made their way to the elevator. “That was almost too easy,” Roxie whispered to Trixie. “But really, Nancy Drew and Nora Charles? Couldn’t you have been a bit more imaginative?”

“Shh. He didn’t even recognize the names, so it’s not important. One thing’s for sure, he isn’t going to be able to give a description. That guy’s eyesight has to be so bad, he’s lucky he can see blurry images. But don’t count your lucky stars yet. We haven’t completed out assignment.”

Hesitating at the door to Room 225, Trixie knocked. The door creaked open a couple of inches and stopped. They stood there, looking at each other. Roxie strained to hear any movement inside. “Maybe he isn’t there.”

“The door’s open and the guy at the desk said he was in his room.”

Roxie shrugged. “Maybe he sneaked out when the guy wasn’t looking.”

Trixie exhaled sharply. “Come on Rox, nobody leaves their door open when they leave.” She pushed the door. As it swung open, they saw a body under the covers in bed. “Mr. Albright? Is it okay if we come in?”

“Frank, Frank, it’s Roxie. We just wanted to talk to you.” Roxie waited for a response that didn’t come. “Boy, he’s a sound sleeper. I wish I could do that. I wake up at the sound of a pin dropping. Then it’s up and down every couple of hours. I’m beginning to wonder if I have Fibromyalgia…”

Bobbye, Love your excerpt and trailer. The music you chose is one of my favorites. It really conveys the story and mood. Congratulations and best of luck on mega sales.

Thanks so much for sharing your book with us. I will be buying it for sure. Is this a mystery series with "Nancy Drew and Nora Charles"?!
