Overview

A comedy suspense novel set in New Orleans.

Luci Seymour - sexy & free spirited - returns to steamy New Orleans in search of the father she's never met. She finds murder, mayhem, love and adventure when her timing puts her directly in the sights of an elderly hit couple and a con man's last scam.

Luci’s family has two rules for living. One, never fall in love. Two, never get married. Her mother broke rule one when she had Luci, but she stayed true to rule two and didn’t marry Luci’s father. Or tell her who he was. A wedding gives her cover to return to New Orleans and try to find out who he was.
She didn’t count on her very eccentric aunts trying to stop her.

She didn’t count on someone trying to kill her. She knows she’s been annoying back in Wyoming, but as far she knows, she hasn’t ticked off anyone in New Orleans. Well, except for one, kind of high maintenance homicide detective...

Detective Mickey Ross agrees to give pick up the flower girl as a favor to his uncle, the groom. Then the flower girl turns out to be a flower woman with truly great legs who has a rule against getting serious. Things are looking up.

Until the shooting starts.
And the body count starts to rise.

Now he’s trying to stay heart whole and alive until he can stand up with his uncle and then head for the swamp before he realizes he might be sorry Luci’s family has those dang rules…

And what will Luci’s father do when he finds out he has a daughter? And that might be ready to break some rules…

Praise for Do Wah Diddy Die:

“When it comes to creating stories with offbeat humor and outrageous situations, Pauline Baird Jones is in a class by herself. A most excellent experience!” Romantic Times

“Once again, Pauline Jones has managed to write a book that rivals anything other comedy writers have put out there for the discerning reader. Ms. Jones' tongue-in-cheek writing style will appeal to anybody, with or without a sense of humor. I spent half my time roaring with laughter and the other half enthralled with the mystery of 'whodunit'. This book is a must read of the highest caliber for anyone who just loves a great book, a good laugh and a fantastic story.” Ariana Overton for Midnight Scribe, Murder List, WordWeaving, Tracy's Book Reviews, ebookconnections.com and Sharpwriter

“I could hardly bear to put this book down for anything. I kept wading through dead bodies to discover the tie in and get this mystery all figured out. I look forward to more hilarious reading from Pauline Baird Jones.” Five thumbs up from Kathy Boswell, Kathy's Faves and Raves

Meet the Author

Pauline Baird Jones had a tough time with reality from the get-go. After “schooling” from four, yes FOUR brothers, she knew that some people needed love and others needed shooting. Pauline figured she could do both. Romantic suspense was the logical starting point, but there were more worlds to explore, more rules to break and minds to bend. She grabbed her pocket watch and time travel device and dove through the wormhole into the world of science fiction and even some Steampunk.

Now she wanders among the genres, trying a little of this and a lot of that, rampaging through her characters' lives like Godzilla because she does love her peril (when it's not happening to her). Never fear, she gives her characters happy endings. Well, the good characters. The bad ones get justice. 
Pauline released her 13th novel, Relatively Risky, in 2013. She's not superstitious about it, well, maybe a little. But the whole loving/killing thing that needs to be done? Doing it fictionally is just better for everyone. And for Pauline, who hates the thought of getting strip searched and jailed. Ahem.
