My Romance Gems sistah JUDITH HUDSON is back with me today! I’m giving the floor all to her as she tells you about her new book TEMPLE OF THE JAGUAR written under the name J.M/ Hudson.
Remember when we used to travel?
Last week I told you about the three book romance boxed set, Welcome to Fortune Bay, but today I’m excited to introduce Temple of the Jaguar, the first book in the Rocky and Bernadette travel mystery series.
What readers are saying about Temple of the Jaguar:
“A fun fast paced murder mystery that takes you on a tour of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico!”
“[an] entertaining murder mystery … I look forward to more travel adventures with Bernadette and Rocky.”
Former archaeologist and single mother Bernadette Mallow is on her first assignment with Let’s Travel magazine, covering a Maya Cultural Tour deep in the Yucatan jungle. After years of transcribing her former professor’s dry academic notes, this is her dream job, but she has to do a good job if she wants more work with the magazine.
Her new partner, photographer Rocky Falconi, is difficult to win over and, to make matters worse, Bernadette’s annoying second sight is acting up, warning her something is terribly wrong.
When bodies start turning up in the lagoon, Bernadette always seems to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, drawing unwanted attention from the Mexican police. That’s when Rocky decides it’s time to step in.
Before someone else gets hurt—or dies.
This travel adventure is an exciting escape from these days when most of us are stuck at home! You can get the ebook of Temple of the Jaguar now here:
Thanks for stopping by!
A little about Judy….
Judy grew up in Toronto Canada and St. Louis MO, then moved to the Pacific Northwest where she now lives on beautiful Vancouver Island.
Her romantic women’s fiction series, Fortune Bay Books, is set in the Pacific Northwest. In each book, someone at a crossroads of their life moves into a ramshackle cabin on Majestic Lake where they work through their problems with the help of friends and family, and the occasional nudge from the friendly spirit of Aunt Augusta. If a romance grows in the process, and it always does, well, so much the better.
As an landscape artist and photographer, the setting of the story is very important to Judy. “I’ve painted in the area for many years and I think it helps me make the setting real for the reader, helps draw them into the story. My characters are often artists, like Maddie, the darkroom photographer in Summer of Fortune who is at Fortune Bay for the summer to work on her first professional show, and Stephanie, the widowed matriarch of the clan who is finding a new life as a painter.”
