Redneck P.I. - #TeaserTuesday and First Chapter / First Paragraph / Tuesday Intros

   I'm only partway into Redneck P.I. but I'm already loving the main character. Twila Taunton is an amber-haired, curvaceous redneck from Quisby, Alabama, currently trying to earn a living in Boston. So far, someone has shot at her at a company picnic, she's been fired from her job (gee, all she did was show a co-worker her boobs!) and she has talked her way into a new job as assistant to a good-lookin' private investigator. I can't imagine what the rest of the book will bring, but I know it will be fun! 

    Redneck P.I. is the first book in the Redneck P.I. mystery series:
Book 2 Link: Kiss Assitude
Book 3 Link: Backwoods Boogie

Genre: Mystery / Humor
Book Length: 314 Pages
Amazon Link: Redneck P.I.
Author Website: Trish Jackson

   The words of a co-worker bitch started the whole thing.
   She hadn't done a very good job of tracking my whereabouts that morning, and obviously didn't know I was in one of the restroom stalls, with my pants on the ground.

Teaser (from 31% on my Kindle):
   Having any sort of gun pointed at you makes you feel pretty helpless, but somehow if you're butt naked when it happens, you feel even more helpless, as if clothes would protect you from a bullet in some way.
   "Holy crap, Velda," I had shouted, "What the fu... What are you doing?"

Synopsis from Amazon:
   Twila Taunton hates living in Yankee territory and has vowed never to allow a man into her life again. Everything is turned upside down when she invites hunky P.I. Harland O'Connor to the company picnic and she looks into his bedroomy eyes. Even worse, his equally as hunky twin brother makes her overlook her cop allergy. 
   Twila finds herself ducking bullets, and when Harland is wounded, she steps in to pinch-hit for him. Her lack of city-sophistication and disregard for political correctness help her solve some tough cases. And then someone tries to blow her up. She and Harland are soon caught in a dizzy, dangerous tangle that could cost them more than their lives.

  5. Thank you so much, Sandy for your kind words. I hope you ladies will enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. I'm currently working on the book #4, 'Fat Girls Rock.'

    And by the way, Diane, the cover of the Kindle version was changed after the church shooting, and the Confederate flag is gone. I just don't have permission from my publisher to make the change to the print version.

  6. What fun! Imagining a redneck in Boston made me giggle...and I knew right away that the humor and hilarious situations that unfold would keep me reading. Thanks!
