Announcing: Till Death Do Us Part!

Will Ida Mae survive her own wedding?

When charming,and mostly bald,widower George Gilmore asked Ida Mae Babbitt to marry him, she was surprised and delighted. But now he has made another proposal,to hold the wedding in two weeks,while all his children are in town. Flustered but sure she can handle it with the help of her friends, Ida Mae agrees.

The plan doesn't go over so well with George's family, however, and Ida Mae finds herself the victim of a plot to stop the wedding. At first the incidents seem like harmless pranks, but they escalate until Ida Mae finds herself in real danger,and in real pain. Bells are ringing, but are they wedding bells or death knells?

It's always so much fun to announce the arrival of a new book baby, and this one has me especially delighted. It's the fifth and final installment in the Secret Sisters Mysteries, and the ladies are excited to share their latest adventure with you. 

And don't forget, if you'd like to update your Secret Sisters Mysteries collection with a blue copy of "Secret Sisters" to match the rest of the series, you can pick it up here!

Amazing News!

You've read and loved the Secret Sisters Mysteries, you own them and they're on your shelf ... there's just one little problem. They don't coordinate. The first book is small, hardback, and purple, and the rest are larger, paperback, and blue. If you're like me and you want your books in a series to match, this is a serious problem!

Well, guess what?

I have just released a new version of Secret Sisters that coordinates with the rest of the series, and for a limited time, you can get this book at a special price.

Secret Sisters
by Tristi Pinkston
plus free shipping!
(Offer good until April 30th, 2013)

For those of you who have never read Secret Sisters, this is your chance to give it a try at a great price. This fun LDS cozy mystery won the Silver Quill from the League of Utah Writers, and is a crazy romp through the lives of a fictional Relief Society presidency. 

Ida Mae Babbitt, president of the Omni 2nd Ward Relief Society, didn't mean to become a spy. But when visiting teaching stats are low and she learns that one family under her care is in financial trouble, she'll do whatever it takes to make sure they have what they need. If that includes planting surveillance cameras in their home and watching them from a parked car in the woods, well, isn't that what any caring Relief Society president would do?

With the help of her counselors Arlette and Tansy, Ida Mae soon learns that there's more to the situation than meets the eye. It's all in a day's work for the Relief Society.

But that's not all ...

When you order your copy, you will receive a sneak peek at the first chapter of Tulips and Treason, the first book in the series that comes after the Secret Sisters Mysteries.

About the Secret Sisters ...

We didn't mean to become spies. But when visiting teaching stats were low and we heard of a family in our care who was having hardship and refusing help, we knew we had to do something. We didn't realize that "something" would involve planting bugs in their house and sticking a tiny camera on their refrigerator. But honestly, we only did what any caring Relief Society presidency would do ...

Endorsements ~

    As a crusty old broad myself, I have no trouble recognizing another woman who qualifies, and Ida Mae Babbitt definitely does. As Relief Society President, she steams ahead in her pursuit of what is right, even when it means breaking the law and facing a stint in the cooler. Her counselors, Arlette and Tansy, are swept along in her wake, and a more unconventional but creative trio would be hard to imagine, especially when they face the bad guys armed with only a heavy skillet and knitting needles. It’s a twisting road Tristi Pinkston takes the reader on, but it’s worth the trip.

Give me a heroine who can wield the Spirit and a frying pan with equal nerve! That's my kind of Crusty Old Broad. Tristi Pinkston adds a dose of mystery and some down‑home humor to create a recipe for fun.

In my three years as Education counselor and my three years as Relief Society president, I never had this much fun. What a clever story. Once I started reading, I didn't want to close the lid to my laptop. Each one of the characters came alive in my mind as I was taken on a very unusual Relief Society presidency adventure. It was one filled with humor and suspense that I will long remember.
