THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT?

            Are you searching for that perfect Christmas gift for the readers on your list? A gift that will give them hours of enjoyment and one they will remember long after the tree comes down and the holiday decorations are put away?

        If you’re like me, you try to select a gift that matches the person. So, before I make my suggestion, let me pose a few questions about your reader friends.

            Do they enjoy solving the puzzle of an intriguing whodunit?

            Will they savor a nice thread of romance in the tale?

            Do they prefer books that whisk them off to beautiful resort locations?

           Are they drawn to stories with compelling characters?

           Do they appreciate a little “woo-hoo” in their reading, not enough to keep them up at  night, just enough to make it interesting?

           When they finish a book, do they want to come away having learned something new?

           Are they a sucker for a great Christmas mystery?

           If you answered yes to any or all of these questions, I have a recommendation for you. My humble suggestion for this perfect Christmas gift for your reader friends is a copy of the new release, SCARLET AT CRYSTAL RIVER, the third entry in my award-winning Haunted Shores Mysteries series.

Reviews

           But don’t take my word for it. Check out what the professional reviewers are saying about SCARLET AT CRYSTAL RIVER.

Scarlet at Crystal River is a suspenseful paranormal novel with compelling characters and an enigmatic mystery that drives the story to a riveting conclusion.” ★★★★★—Literary Titan, Gold Award

“Scarlet at Crystal River” is a rollercoaster of a mystery, hurtling up and down hills and around sharp corners until the very end, when the reader is left slightly breathless, waiting for their hearts to beat back to a normal rhythm.

“This is another masterpiece from Randy Overbeck. His excellent writing style has left me speechless for one more time. He writes in a way that makes you feel what the characters feel and you have no choice but to partake in the journey with them.” ★★★★★—Ioanna’s Reviews, Greece

“A ghost story with a twist, Scarlet at Crystal River is a bestseller in the making. Brilliant descriptive narration sucks the reader in and doesn’t let go until the end of the story. Paranormal and mystery readers will love Scarlet at Crystal River. If you’re looking for a spine-tingling mystery, pick up Scarlet at Crystal River. Highly recommend!” 5+ Stars—N N Light Bookheaven

One thing that is particularly special about Overbeck’s books is that they unabashedly tackle social issues within their plots. “Scarlet at Crystal River” forces readers to confront…the dangers of racism and xenophobia. ★★★★★—ReaderViews

“Overbeck’s writing transports you into real-life landscapes and imagined locations with a seamlessness that makes it hard to tell one from the other. The beauties of the Florida Gulf coast, the swampy growth that borders the greenery of well-fertilized fields, the posh interior of an ag magnate’s two story, all create a land that is seen, heard, smelled and felt.”—KRL News and Reviews

Unwilling at first to derail the honeymoon for yet another ghost hunt, Darrell finally concedes when a painting of the kids comes alive, weeping and pleading for his help.

When he and Erin track down the artist, they discover the children’s family were migrant workers the next county over. But when they travel there, their questions about the kids gets their car shot up and Erin hospitalized.
