Blogfest – Did I Notice Your Book?


What makes a new book jump out and beg to be read even if you’ve never heard of the author?  A great cover or a catchy title can grab the attention of a potential reader, and Beth Groundwater’s Wicked Eddies did just that.  It’s difficult to ignore, Wicked Eddies, and not be just a bit intrigued. Did I notice your book? If so, please comment. If you’re just curious, here’s the blurb.


Fly fishing is dangerous?  River ranger Mandy Tanner had no idea until days before a huge tournament in Salida, Colorado. True, the Arkansas River can be a man-eater, but the rapids weren’t responsible for driving a hatchet into the neck of would-be competitor Howie Abbott—a secretive man who may have been cheating. While casting about for suspects, Mandy seeks clues from Abbott’s family members, including her best friend, bartender Cynthia Abbott. But when Cynthia becomes the prime suspect, Mandy realizes that trolling for the true killer has plunged her way too deep into wicked eddies.

  4. Kim, I can understand why you chose this one. There's something about where the water will take you, maybe. I'm not sure. But it looks interesting.

  11. Hi Kim,
    Thanks so, so much for noticing WICKED EDDIES! It is the second book in my RM Outdoor Adventures mystery series featuring whitewater river ranger Mandy Tanner, who lives in Salida, Colorado and patrols the upper Arkansas River. The first book in the series, DEADLY CURRENTS, was an Amazon bestseller and was well-reviewed in all 4 of the big review pubs (Booklist, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly), the Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine, and Mystery Scene. I hope your blog readers will try both books, and will be on the lookout for the third, FATAL DESCENT, which comes out next May. Thanks again! - Beth
