Welcome to my blog, Mary. Sunny's Dream is the first book in an Inspirational Mystery Series called Celestial Investigation. Please tell us about this Mystery/Suspense Romance.

Sunny Kast spends her week fighting cyber-crime, and dreaming of her prince charming. When a man walks into Celestial Investigations, and introduces himself as Trouble, she’s sure he’s not her prince and positive that he lives up to his name. After Max Trouble finds an important document, his life gets complicated with the know-it-all P.I. hired to track down its owner.

Sunny and Max’s relationship grows. She’s optimistic that he may be her prince charming, but after her car is sabotaged and she’s almost killed, Max’s chauvinist ideas of a female investigator surface. Will she see God’s perfect plan, or a not-so-perfect relationship?

“Sunny’s Dream,” Celestial Investigation, book one, is a Christian romantic suspense based on three sisters. Their P.I. skills come in handy in the quaint town of Mercy, North Carolina, a place where romance and mystery unite.

Where did you get your inspiration for this story?

I was driving home one day. For no reason, the concept of creating a series with three sisters came to mind. The names were instant. I’m very grateful to God for fueling my imagination.

I understand completely. What kind of research did you do for this book?

I researched the requirements to be a private investigator in North Carolina. I also searched out several facts on various ways to sabotage a car and gun laws. LOL I’m sure if anyone notices my search history they may think I’m some kind of nut.    

Tell me about one of the main characters and what you love about him or her?

Sunny is the main character. I like her spunk, and the way she reacts to difficult situations.

Where is your website and blog so my readers can check out your recent and past books that you have written?

Thank you for this fun interview, Mary. This series sounds so intriguing.

Sounds like a fun story to read! Sunnie has always been my nickname! Spelled a bit differently, however.
