Audiobook Series Tour: Marketville Mysteries by Judy Penz Sheluk

Author: Judy Penz Sheluk

Narrator: Kelli Lindsay

Series: Marketville Mysteries, Book 2

Publisher: Judy Penz Sheluk

Released: Apr. 8, 2019

Genre: Mystery

Sometimes the past reaches out to the present. It’s been 13 months since Calamity (Callie) Barnstable inherited a house in Marketville under the condition that she search for the person who murdered her mother 30 years earlier. She solves the mystery, but what’s 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.

Brad Graber writes novels because he grew up in a family where no one ever listened to him – so he made up stories about them.

After the Fall, released in May 2018, is Brad’s second novel. The story follows Rikki, a teenager being raised by her grandmother in NYC, who goes on a journey to learn the truth about her family. Eventually, she crosses paths with Harry, a writer in Phoenix, who is struggling with his own issues of identity. Brad’s debut novel The Intersect, released in 2016, tells the tale of strangers reaching out and finding love, friendship, and lasting connection in Phoenix. Both novels have won multiple awards and garnered rave reviews. Brad also writes a humorous blog on the human condition: There, I Said It!

Born and raised in New York City, Brad obtained a B.A. in Biology from the State University of New York at Buffalo and an M.H.A. from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. A former healthcare executive, Brad has held a number of management positions and has been a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives and a Certified Medical Executive through Medical Group Management Association. Though he no longer works in healthcare, he continues to volunteer with local non-profits.

Brad has lived in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago; West Bloomfield, a suburb of Detroit; and Mill Valley, a suburb of San Francisco. He currently resides in Phoenix with his husband Jeff.

CHARACTERS OF AFTER THE FALL

Rikki Goldenbaum

The doctors have assured Rikki that her memory will slowly return, but after four years, Rikki is now desperate to remember.

Song Lyric Sunday | “Coulda Been” – Kimberley Locke

Song Lyric Sunday_new

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  Could/Might/Should/Would.

~~~~~~~~~~

Finishing behind Ruben Stoddard and Clay Aiken, Kimberley Locke was the third place winner in season two of American Idol in 2003.

While a fan favorite, Coulda Been, the third release from her 2005 album, One Love, failed to chart. It did, however, find minor success in the UK.

While none of her other songs grew on me, Coulda Been has been a favorite for over a decade.

FUN FACTS:

  • Kimberley has enjoyed major success with Christmas songs. Her version of Up on the House Top, released in autumn of 2005. By the end of year, it had reached the top spot of the Adult Contemporary (A/C) charts. The following year, Locke’s version of Jingle Bells was released and topped the same charts. A full Christmas album entitled Christmas — only available digitally — was released on November 6, 2007.
  • From 2005 through September 2006, Locke was signed with Ford Models’ 14+ Division. She has appeared on the covers of the July 2005 issue of Figure magazine and the summer 2007 issue of UneQ magazine. She has also been a former spokesperson for Lane Bryant and Seven7 Jeans.
  • In 2007 Locke was a participant on the fifth season of Celebrity Fit Club. While filming for the show, Locke chose to follow the Jenny Craig diet plan and had such great success she was offered a deal as spokeswoman with Jenny Craig At the completion of filming for the show, Kimberley weighed in at a final weight of 149 lbs; down a total of 27 lbs. from her original start weight of 176 lbs. A feature in the September 10th issue of People Magazine shows Kimberley at 141 lbs., only 3 pounds away from her goal. Locke announced through her official MySpace blog on October 8, 2007 that she had finally achieved her 40-pound weight loss goal.

The video for Coulda Been was directed by Urban Strom, who also directed videos for Mary J. Blige, Rachel Stevens and LeAnn Rimes. It was filmed in London, England in the spring of 2004. In the video, Kimberley sees another woman’s name show up on her boyfriend’s caller ID. She goes on to tell him that one day he will look back at what “coulda been” and regret letting her go.

Enjoy!
