Pamela Burford

Preserving Peaches

Book 5: Jane Delaney Mysteries

About the Book

Just when it looks like Death Diva Jane Delaney’s dormant love life is finally poised to take off, the romantic moment is interrupted by notoriously caustic advice columnist Gertrude “Peaches” Gillespey—or more accurately, by the discovery of Peaches’s mummified corpse.

The victim made plenty of enemies with her lacerating wit, so there’s no shortage of suspects. And when her shocking secrets come to light, the question becomes: Who didn’t want Peaches dead?

As if that’s not enough, Jane must cope with a second suspicious death, a vexing love triangle, a dirty mayoral election, and the victim’s missing collection of peach-shaped knickknacks. Not to mention a hair-raising online date with a possible homicidal maniac. Thank goodness for Jane’s loyal sidekick, Sexy Beast. There’s nothing like a high-strung, seven-pound poodle to help you solve your mummy issues.

“Engaging and hilarious, Uprooting Ernie is the perfect summer read with its Long Island setting, light (but not trite) prose and very human humor.”

— Tamsen Schultz, best-selling author of the Windsor Series mysteries

Uprooting Ernie is an intriguing murder mystery, full of twists and turns, interesting characters, and hilarious escapades you don’t want to miss.”

“I hated to put it down… I will be looking to read other books by Pamela Burford!”

— Readalot

“Oh what a fun read!… There are some seriously superb ideas in this book! The names especially—I mean, how not to love Sexy Beast, the most adorable, lovable purse-sized doggie in the world, who just happens to be a millionaire, owning a mansion for his house. And his human, the Death Diva (aka Jane Delaney)? Come on, admit you’re smiling at this point… Yeah, lots of good chuckles, a bit of nail-biting suspense, a love triangle of sorts, or at least a good dilemma in the subject—all my faves!!!… Really entertaining book!!! Two thumbs up!”

— BookBug’s World

“The real delight of these books is the humour. I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things that Jane gets herself involved in… I loved this book and really hope that we don’t have to wait too long for the next one. I for one, can’t wait to see what Jane gets up to next.”

— Crazy K.A.L.M.
