 30bluffSusan Yanguas

What do a nearsighted massage therapist, a rookie detective called “Fish,” a weekly poker game, and an endangered cougar have in common? Murder, it turns out!
Myopic Abby Ford is the only “eyewitness” to the murder of a local environmentalist. She can’t identify the killer, but he can identify her — forcing her to stay one step ahead of his hired goons. When the lead detective also becomes her bodyguard after an attempt on her life, their growing attraction only complicates matters. But what neither suspects is that the killer has an inside edge very close to home…

Set in a suburb of Baltimore, Bluff introduces a cast of quirky and endearing characters that will have you looking forward to the rest of this “crime lite” series.

Susan Yanguas is a writer/editor for a U.S. government agency where she also teaches writing workshops. She is a tireless crusader against the use of nouns as verbs and other atrocities in bureaucratic writing. When not at her day job, Susan writes fiction and creative non-fiction, paints, and does Reiki energy work. She lives in Maryland with two very needy cats.

Bluff is available in ebook and paperback formats at all major online retailers.

Sunny days:   Pure fabulous for the tan.   Even pale Celts like me have a colour – even if it is bright pink.
Rain at night:   Pure fabulous for the garden.  It’s looking self satisfied as we speak.
Thunder and lightening:   Not a bit frightening… Mama Mia. Mama Mia… pure fabulous for drama.
What more could anyone want from a summer?
