Publisher's Summary

Libby Marshall has one rule….She doesn’t date lawyers or cops.  

A former prosecutor, Libby was once married to a lawyer, which about got her killed…literally. Witness Protection provided her with a new life, a new home, and a new career as a coffee house and café owner in Southwest Florida. Instead of focusing on her espresso machine and scones, however, Libby finds herself in the middle of yet another murder investigation and involved with super-hot detective Jack Seiler. Will Jack make her consider breaking her rule a second time, and if she does, will she live through the consequences? 

Murder in Mariposa Beach, Mariposa Café Mystery number one – is Friends meets Miami Vice

Welcome to the Mariposa Café Mystery series where it’s all about fun Florida mysteries featuring fearless, female sleuths. 

Praise for Murder in Mariposa Beach

“Such a fantastic debut book for first-time author Teresa Michael! She’s got a new fan in me! I love her humor. Her characters are terrific! The mystery is solid and intriguing. And the chemistry between her hero and heroine are hotter than the coffee served at the heroine’s café. I cannot wait for the next book in this series!” (D. D. Scott, international best-selling author) 

About the author: 

Teresa Michael’s professional career is in health information management and technology and she is currently the Director of Health Information Management at a large health care system in Florida. She returned to college in her 50s, and instead of following the healthcare informatics path, she followed her passion and earned a degree in Creative Writing from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL. 

Teresa has always loved a good mystery and has turned her love of writing and mystery stories into her first mystery novel. She likes to read and belongs to a book club whose members have pushed her out of her comfort zone into enjoying all genres, though a good mystery is still her first choice. 

She loves to travel and has visited 49 states having spent nine years on the road working for a healthcare software vendor. She also spent many years as the Team Manager of the US Archery team for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia and the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia as well as other international tournaments all over the world. 

She lives in Sarasota, Florida with her husband and two cats, Lily and Lido. She enjoys visiting her children and grandchildren and loves spending time with her family creating new memories. She’s busy working on the next Mariposa Café mystery and planning her next trip, hopefully to that 50th state.

meh

Murder in Mariposa Beach is at best mediocre. The characters are flat and the story isn't very entertaining. I listened to this book for 4 hours before I finally gave up on it. I'm not going to get the next one.
