About the Author

Cindy Sample is a former CEO who decided plotting murder was more entertaining than plodding through paperwork. She retired to follow her lifelong dream of becoming a mystery author. Her experiences with online dating sites fueled the concept for Dying for a Date, the first in her national bestselling Laurel McKay mysteries. The sequel, Dying for a Dance, winner of the 2011 NCPA Fiction Award, is based on her adventures in the glamorous world of ballroom dancing. Cindy thought her protagonist, Laurel McKay, needed a vacation in Hawaii, which resulted in Dying for a Daiquiri, a finalist for the 2014 Silver Falchion Award for Best Traditional Mystery. Laurel returned to Placerville for her wildest ride yet in Dying for a Dude. The West will never be the same. Dying for a Dude was also a 2014 Next Generation Indie Award Finalist in both mystery and humor. Then on to Dying for a Donut, the tastiest mystery of them all. It was time for Laurel (and Cindy) to take another vacation so get ready for the cruise of the century in Dying for a Diamond.

Cindy is a four-time finalist for the LEFTY Award for best humorous mystery and a past president of the Sacramento chapter of Sisters in Crime. She has served on the boards of the Sacramento Opera and YWCA. She is a member of Mystery Writers of America and Romance Writers of America. Cindy has two wonderful adult children who live too far away. She loves chatting with readers so feel free to contact her on any forum.

I always wanted to go on a cruise & this book fit the bill. The usual characters (extended family plus) from Candy Sample's books featuring Laurel McKay plus a whole new cast of suspects and crazy hijinks along with murder. I liked it.
