Simmering Stu

Book 6: Jane Delaney Mysteries

About the Book

A hot tub can be a great place to decompress—provided your tub toy isn’t a Glock 9-millimeter. When Death Diva Jane discovers that Stu Ruskin has taken decompression a little too far, everyone assumes his sudden demise was self-inflicted. The result of a guilty conscience perhaps? After all, no one who knew Stu would describe him as a Boy Scout.

Jane begins to suspect murder when disturbing revelations come to light, involving a blood feud, secret recipes, and a (haunted?) bed-and-breakfast inn with a dark history going back to Colonial times.

As if a hot-tub homicide weren’t enough to deal with, Jane is more than a little conflicted about yummy bad boy Martin McAuliffe. All she really knows about the sexy bartender is that he has a mysterious past and is a darn good kisser. But hey, Sexy Beast approves of him, and when has Jane’s neurotic canine sidekick ever steered her wrong?

Praise for the Jane Delaney series

“Look out, Janet Evanovich: Jane Delaney is a worthy rival of Stephanie Plum. Bright, smart, and incredibly funny, Undertaking Irene is a delightful laugh-out-loud roller-coaster ride.”

— Lorna Barrett, New York Times best-selling author of Book Clubbed

“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.”

— Angel Sefer, best-selling author of The Greek Isles Series

 — Rantin’, Ravin’, & Reading

Undertaking Irene by Pamela Burford is one of the funniest books I’ve read in a long time!… I was laughing out loud right from the start… I can’t wait for book two. If you like humor with your mystery, definitely check this one out!”

“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.
