About Past & Present

Sometimes the past reaches out to the present…

It’s been thirteen months since Calamity (Callie) Barnstable inherited a house in Marketville under the condition that she search for the person who murdered her mother thirty years earlier. She solves the mystery, but what next? Unemployment? Another nine-to-five job in Toronto?

Callie decides to set down roots in Marketville, take the skills and knowledge she acquired over the past year, and start her own business: Past & Present Investigations.

It’s not long before Callie and her new business partner, best friend Chantelle Marchand, get their first client: a woman who wants to find out everything she can about her grandmother, Anneliese Prei, and how she came to a “bad end” in 1956. It sounds like a perfect first assignment. Except for one thing: Anneliese’s past winds its way into Callie’s present, and not in a manner anyone—least of all Callie—could have predicted.

A recent review for A Hole in One..

I enjoyed this book, the second in the Glass Dolphin Mystery series. Arabella Carpenter and Emily Garland once again find themselves in the middle of a murder when they agree to sponsor a hole-in-one prize at a charity golf tournament. But things are not what they seem.

Shortly after the tournament begins, Arabella shoots into the woods on the third hole, and while she tries to retrieve her ball, she stumbles over a dead body. Even worse, it turns out to be the father of her ex-husband, Levon Larruquette, who is still carrying a torch for his her. Levon becomes the number one suspect, and Emily and Arabella must dig through layers of blackmail, fraud, and murder to try to prove him innocent.

I really like the characters in Penz Sheluk’s books, and this one has enough unique and funny characters–like an Elvis impersonator–to keep the plot moving along.
