the one thing that could drag a NASCAR enthusiast away from a race? Murder? Maybe. Having a stubborn wife drag you
into a solving said murder. Definitely.
is an ex-cop from Chicago. He loves his young fiery wife, Ruby, cold beer, and
NASCAR…not necessary in that order. He thought he had walked away from
solving murders; however, if he wants to keep his wife safe…and his marriage trouble free…he better clear his
brother-in-law of murder.
Paint” sounds like a simple story – family member accused of murder, wife drags ex-cop husband into clearing family
member of charge, finds themselves in a whole lot of trouble along the way. It
may even be uninteresting to those of us who are not into car races.
Forget that thinking. “Swapping Paint” is a fun-filled, well-paced, character-filled story that
screams – MORE!
this story, it’s entertaining, original, and completely different from other cozies I’ve read before.
because of the NASCAR background, after all the murder takes place during the week leading up to the Coca Cola 600. Not being familiar with this backdrop, I truly felt the emotions, smells, and excitement of being right

are this much fun…well, without the murder part.
Fasten your seatbelts
you’re in for a quite a ride…okay a little cliché but it fits.
