The Oncoming Storm Series by Jay Mims

"This is a fun -- and funny -- read. Delightful enough to make us ignore the knee-deep holes in the plot, because really, who cares. The books seems to exist as a vehicle to carry the wit of the author, and mighty indeed and charming is that wit!" - Goodreads, Marti, about book #3


Dan Landis is a private investigator who makes his living peeping in windows and taking compromising photos to make a quick buck. But, even adultery has an off-season, and to make some quick cash, Dan’s been hired by a department store to work as a loss prevention agent. 

Then he finds Santa stuffed behind a dumpster. One Santa leads to another, and before he knows it, Dan’s up to his sugar plums in murder, intrigue and holiday cheer. It’s up to Dan to save Christmas, find the Kringle Killer and choose the perfect gift for the quirky blonde in his life. 

"Santas was a fun read. Within the first few lines I found myself smiling and laughing. The characters aren't all humor though nor is their plight. [...] If you want something different, fun and thoroughly enjoyable even after the snow melts, pick this one up." - Goodreads, H.K. Savage

When Dan Landis wakes up handcuffed and threatened by a colander wielding high-heeled beauty, he knows it’s Tuesday. And when a hapless blonde is in danger of being mugged, his best friend shows up poisoned in his kitchen, and his sister wants him to track down a cowboy named Tex, Dan knows he’s in trouble.

Dan and his faithful sidekick Abbey return for this new mystery, as college professors keep disappearing, students end up poisoned, and someone keeps trying to kill Dan. And all signs point to an obscure film called The Cult of Koo Kway.

As the clock ticks, Abbey and Dan must work together to save the day. 

"This is an action packed novel with stellar character development. We start with a dangerous mission, fuzzy handcuffs, and a potential mugging. It jumps around a bit, but you'll catch on. By the time you finish, you'll be ready to rush out and buy more from Jay Mims." - Amazon, Donna Milward

Dan Landis had a simple plan. 
Drive to a quaint bed and breakfast, spend New Year’s with his best friend Doc, and enjoy a much-needed vacation.
Except, he didn’t account for everyone’s favorite klutzy genius Abbey. 

Now there’s a body in the library, snow all around, and a mansion full of suspects. Dan must call on his best detective skills, and his worst Hercule Poirot impersonation, to solve this latest mystery. However, the awful truth looms overhead everyone, whatever the answer, nothing will ever be the same.

"This is a fun read with twists and turns all over! You will get so engrossed with the characters and never want it to end. It's a story that will keep you thinking but you'll find yourself laughing along the way. Yes it is a murder mystery but the characters make the story. Anyone up for some suspense will love this series! Each book is another mystery but they all go together and you see the characters grow throughout. Great read!" - Goodreads, Wine Relaxation and MY Kindle

The storm is here

Dan Landis, private investigator, has been hired by his defense attorney sister to do the impossible. In order to create a miracle, Dan must call on his friends and family, endangering them and putting a target on his own back. 

Dan is on the run, his home is in flames, and the bad guys have murder on their minds. The skys reddened in The Five Santas, the clouds began to darken in Cult of Koo Kway, and the thunder rumbled in The Gray Ghost Inn. At last, the storm is here. And everything is about to change.

"The cast of characters is long, their voices loud, their roles fun and dangerous. There’s lots of snark, snappy back and forth, chuckles, and a whole lot of whoop A#S!

A dynamite new chapter in this series." - Goodreads, Laura Thomas
