Eighth graders, Ben, Jake and Leah need cash, and mowing lawns in the winter just isn’t cutting it. Their need for cash births the Liarus (Liars R Us) Detective Agency! Their first client is Old Lady Smitz, who is said to have murdered her three sons and husband. She’s missing a family heirloom, but it’s not just any old trinket, it’s the Crest of Lykoi. There are only two rules: No girls are allowed and never seal a deal with the witch doctor. Disregarding danger, these three discover that money is usually more trouble than it’s worth!
Those of you who are regular followers of my blog know that, in addition to being a blogger, I’m also a freelance editor. I don’t post reviews of the books that I edit (since it would seem like a conflict of interest), but I DO love to feature them here on Feed Your Fiction Addiction from time to time. Well, L.A. Starkey has just released her newest middle grade novel! This is a fun paranormal tale, perfect for older middle graders or younger YA (and especially for boys, who don’t have a lot of MG books geared toward them!).
I know what you’re thinking – didn’t you just feature another release by this author? Yep! And I’ll be featuring another release on Monday! (Now you see why I’ve been an editing machine lately – she keeps me busy!! Love it!)
L.A. Starkey is the author of the upcoming Soul Keeper Series, a supernatural young adult series, and The Liarus Detective Series, a supernatural middle grade series.
She is a CPA by trade, a church planter and entrepreneur at heart; however, writing and reading are passions she just can’t help but indulge in. With more ideas than one person should be allowed, she is blessed to have a muse that doesn’t seem to take a vacation and more energy that one might consider healthy.
She writes under the following pen names:
Kate Thomas – NA/Adult Paranormal
Isabella James – Sci-fi/Fantasy
Lauren Elizabeth – Adult Contemporary Romance
