$25 Amazon GC-It Had To Be You-WW-Delynn Royer-Ends 7/25

Monday, July 6, 2015



It is the age of prohibition and no one knows who is worse--the bad guys or the bad cops and there are plenty of both in this mystery. Then there is tenacious Trixie Frank, reporter who is determined to make a name for herself in spite of her rich Daddy! Sean is perhaps the only decent and honest cop around, or so it seems and when Trixie and Sean get together to figure out who murdered the gangster sparks fly! Then there is little Danny--an orphan who lives on the street and steals (or tries to) Trixie's pocketbook. Trixie took pity on him and gives him her phone number and tells him she will help him get a job Later that night he witnesses a murder and is the only one who can identify the killers.

I have to say I loved the character of Danny--that little rapscallion--and was very happy that his ending was one that will make all happy. The interaction between males and females were definitely taken from that period of time and will make you smile! So who were the good guys and who the bad? And was the killer found? I have to warn you that this is written in Brooklynese with a bit of Irish thrown in--but it fits right in to the time period. I really enjoyed this foray into the past!!



New York City, 1924

Determined to pursue her dream of becoming a crime reporter, heiress Trixie Frank believes she's off to a running start when she lands a job at the most successful tabloid in Manhattan. Unfortunately, her high hopes fade fast when she's assigned to the rewrite desk.

Sean Costigan is a demoted homicide detective on the commissioner's blacklist. The last thing he needs complicating his life is a perky debutante with delusions of becoming the next great American journalist. Too bad she happens to hold one of the keys to solving his latest case, the Central Park murder of a notorious gangster. The other key?

Sean's childhood sweetheart, the victim's widow, who has gone missing.
Sean soon has more trouble with dames than any good man deserves. But that's the least of his worries. When he suspects deadly corruption within his own department, it's not just his and Trixie's careers that depend on finding the killer. It's their lives.

"This book offers the perfect elements for a 1920s whodunit, starting with the murder of a bootlegger and suspects that include a Ziegfeld girl, a sexy widow, gangsters and cops. Enter an eager reporter who's an heiress and a lone wolf cop from Hell's Kitchen. What we get is a murder mystery that surprised me in the end and a fun new romance brewing between opposites that attract."

"Ms. Royer weaves in all walks of life from the era. A Zeigfeld girl, a beautiful widow from Sean's old neighborhood, a stuffy, overbearing butler, a street urchin, and a slew of cops and gangsters. A fun trip through a wonderful time period. Well done!"

"I loved this story. It's like Nancy Drew in the twenties. Only instead of depending on her daddy's money, this girl fends for herself as a fledgling reporter."

About the Author
Delynn Royer is the older, smarter, funnier, more ornery alter ego of author Donna Grove, who, as a young mother, published several lighthearted historical romances. The first, A TOUCH OF CAMELOT, won a Romance Writers of America Golden Heart Award. Soon after that, Delynn set aside her pen to concentrate on her day job and raising her two sons.

Motherhood never ends, but kids eventually fly the nest. Delynn has returned to her first love, writing. She has updated editions of her backlist to be available as ebooks and is working on new titles that she hopes will entertain and lighten readers' hearts.

IT HAD TO BE YOU is Delynn's latest ebook release, the start of a new romantic mystery series set in 1920's Manhattan, from Carina press. The second, Goodbye, Tootsie, is due out this Summer.

Aside from delving into the historical research that inspires her novels, Delynn enjoys classic movies, reading, travel and yoga. She lives with her husband in Pennsylvania.

About the Author

I've been writing, in one way or another for as long as I can remember; writing poetry, short stories, a romance novel secretly stashed under the bed and sappy love letters. Fiction should be fun. I wanted to create the perfect beach book, to make the reader laugh, cry and cheer... and then run out and tell their friends about it.

My love of reading began when I was seven, the day I opened the cover of my first Mrs. Piggle Wiggle book. Mrs. P gave lessons to other children in how to behave and to me I learned to love the written word. I live with my family and demon children aka rescue cats in South Florida.

Planet Weidknecht and LeahSays’ Views are once again to be thanked for putting this hop together. Every participant has a giveaway worth at least $25.00. You can find the clickable list underneath the Rafflecopter. I encourage all of you to hop around and enter them all!!

It is HOT HOT HOT out there and I don't know about you but I have been pulling my hair back and up off my neck as much as is possible! Even my cat is out of sorts and has been batting and nipping at my legs or hands (gently) if I dare to leave my bedroom after she deems it is bedtime. She is just not in the mood for any of my shenanigans! By eight o'clock I'd better be shutting down the computer or her body becomes an immovable object in front of the screen. Look at this sweet little face--but don't let that innocent look fool you-she is all business when she wants me to do what she wants!


Enough about me and my mini monster--I'm sure you want to hear what Miki's Hope is giving away and if you are hoping that I will do what I usually do--you would be correct (hey I almost decided to give away Lilla Rose Hair Accessories but then realized it would have to be US only-not fair to everyone else) Thus one lucky winner 18 years of age or older will be chosen by Rafflecopter as the winner of their choice of either a $25 Amazon GC or $25 PayPal. Of course you will have to reply to the email I send-you know the drill! And as usual I am also going to make it a very easy entry.

Now do not forget, after you enter my giveaway to go to the other blogs and enter theirs!!
