About the Author

DelSheree Gladden was one of those shy, quiet kids who spent more time reading than talking. Literally. She didn't speak a single word for the first three months of preschool, but she had already taught herself to read. Her fascination with reading led to many hours spent in the library and bookstores, and eventually to writing. She wrote her first novel when she was sixteen years old, but spent ten years rewriting and perfecting it before having it published.

Native to New Mexico, DelSheree and her husband spent several years in Colorado for college and work before moving back home to be near family again. Their two children love having their cousins close by. When not writing, you can find DelSheree reading, painting, sewing and trying not to get bitten by small children in her work as a dental hygienist. DelSheree has several bestselling young adult series, including "Invisible" which was part of the USA Today Bestselling box set, "Pandora." The "Date Shark Series" is her first contemporary romance series, now joined by her first romantic comedy, "The Crazy Girl's Handbook," and the comedic "Eliza Carlisle Mystery Series."

Title: Trouble Magnet - Eliza Carlisle Mystery Book 1 Author: DelSheree Gladden Published: 3-15-2016 Publisher: DelSheree Gladden Pages: 206 Genre: Mystery, Thrillers & Suspense Sub Genre: Humor ISBN: 13: 9781530628773 ASIN: B01CAS0XQ0 Reviewer: DelAnne Reviewed For: NetGalley Rating: 4.75 Stars I received a copy of "Trouble Magnet" from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review. Description from the publisher: Eliza Carlisle has the unwanted talent of attracting trouble, in all its forms. That couldn’t be truer than when she moves into the most bizarre apartment building on the planet. Weekly required dinners with the landlord and assigned chores are bad enough, but the rules don’t end there. Top most on the list of requirements is NO physical violence against the others residents. There have been issues. In the past. The young manager, Sonya, claims that hasn’t been a problem recently, but Eliza comes home from her first day of culinary school to find a dead resident, her next door neighbor looking good for the crime, and a cop that seems more interested in harassing her than solving the case. All Eliza wanted was to escape her past and start over, completely anonymous in a big city. That’s not going to be so easy when the killer thinks she’s made off with a valuable piece of evidence everyone is trying to get their hands on. The ultimatum that she turn it over to save her own life creates a small problem. Eliza has no idea what the killer wants, or where the mysterious object might be. If she can’t uncover a decades old mystery in time, surviving culinary school will be the least of her problems. My review of "Trouble Magnet": The cast of characters in the novel are diverse and well developed. Each individual personality had quirks that bring them to life for the reader. Add in DelSheree Gladden's descriptive writing style and you will feel yourself becoming a part of the scenes as you read them. Murder is serious business, but Gladden infuses the story with humor as well. "Trouble Magnet" is a quick read that will hold you spell bound as you read from the opening paragraphs to the last. A winner for DelSheree Gladden. My rating is 4.75 out of 5 stars. I would recommend this book for any lover of humorous light mysteries. I hope you enjoy it.
