Uprooting Ernie

Book 2: Jane Delaney Mysteries

About the Book

Death Diva Jane is simply going about her business, which in this case requires her to empty a three-liter spigot box of cheap rosé on a grave, when she and her furry sidekick Sexy Beast make a grisly discovery in the town cemetery.

The victim was murdered three decades ago, but memories are fresh and old grievances fresher as facts come to light and fingers start pointing. Naturally Jane must investigate. Well, what would you do if one of your best pals turned out to be Suspect Numero Uno?

Meanwhile, between her amorous ex and a sexy bad boy who keeps popping up in the most distracting way—not to mention the (creepy? bizarre? pathetic?) guys she’s meeting through a dog lovers’ dating site—her love life has never been so (creepy? bizarre? pathetic?)… interesting.

What They're Saying About Uprooting Ernie

“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

“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 when it comes to a good cozy mystery!!! Really entertaining book!!! Two thumbs up!

— BookBug’s World

“This is a fun, quick read on a summer day… I enjoyed the humor—Jane is a funny, funny lady.”

— It’s Not All Gravy
