Sunshine State Murders by Bob Moats

Jim has solved the case of the man hypnotized into committing murder and now his book publisher wants him to go on a month long book signing tour around the country. Jim's books about his adventures in crime solving are doing well in sales. Jim agrees after Penny calls her studio and gets the month off to go with him. They travel across the country and finally end up in Florida in a small town where people wait to meet Jim and Penny. While in this out of the way town, Jim finally meets his book editor who is from Florida and she comes into town to meet Jim. The book signing in the quaint bookstore goes very well, but later at their motel things go wrong. An attempt on the life of the book editor puts her in the hospital, hanging on for her life. Who would attack this woman and why. Was it because she looked so much like Penny that the attacker got the wrong woman? Jim has to find out and another murder doesn't help. All in a days work for the Senior Citizen Sleuth, Jim Richards in this seventeenth book of the murder novels.

About the Author

Detroit area resident, Bob Moats, has been writing short stories and plays for as long as he can remember. He has lost most of his original stories, typed or handwritten, in the numerous moves he has made from his hometown of Fraser, Michigan to Northern Michigan, to Las Vegas and back to Fraser, where he now Resides. He also wrote the short fantasy novella "Crystal Prison of Kyr" and is a published playwright with his three act comedy "Happily Ever After".

Moats became one of the causalities of unemployment early in 2009, and had time on his hands to finally pursue a life long dream of writing a full blown crime novel. Thus was born the first book, "Classmate Murders".

What followed was a series of 20 books starting with "The Classmate Murders" which introduces the main character, Jim Richards

I've been reading the whole series and I have really enjoyed them. But two suggestions, if the author is going to use the southern slang, then please get it right. "Ya'll" is used for more than one person. We do not use "ya'll" instead of "you". Also, being a retired 36 yr old female law enforcement officer injured in the line of duty from the south, I kind of took offense to the implication that southern officers aren't as "up to par" as other law enforcement officials. Other than that, I've really enjoyed the series. Keep writing.

I'm working my way through the Jim Richard's books. Even though there seems to be a lack of editing, LOVE them all! Comparable to Stephanie Plum reads. THANK YOU, Bob Moats, for a great series!

The characters who spoke with a southern accent all had their dialogue spelled phonetically. So bad! I had to really pay attention to what they were saying instead of reading normally.

I started with the first book Classmate Murders and didn't stop until I had read the entire series. I love the books. Funny, exciting, mysterious, you just never know wh did it! I love the humor good clean reading that keeps you on the edge, and you learn to like all the main characters. Will read them again and again.

This is one of my favorites. I figured out the killer early but it did spoil the story. GOOD JOB BOB.
