$25 Amazon/PP-WW-The Girl in White Pajamas-Chris Birdy-Ends 9/7

Tuesday, August 19, 2014



This is a somewhat madcap adventure which revolves around a murder. Bodie McGruder's brother Officer Bud is gunned down. Bodie, who has been living down in Palm Beach which he figures is far enough away from his VERY dysfunctional family returns to Boston to pay his condolences. Actually what he really wants to do is to find and be reunited with his 3 year old daughter, who he was never told he had. He does know and really wants to find her.

There are so many twists and turns in this novel and so many half truths and lies (I did mention that this family was dysfunctional didn't I) that although you MIGHT figure out who actually committed the murder you will never in a million years believe how Isabella saves the day!

I am looking forward to The Girl in Black Pajamas which is the next book in this series.


When Officer Bud the PR face of the Boston Police Department is gunned down, his brother, Bogie McGruder, returns from Palm Beach for the funeral. Since the BPD is investigating the death of one of their own, Bogie believes his trip to Boston will be a short condolence visit and a chance to meet his secret love child.

But interacting with a family fueled by alcohol and mired in scandals, Bogie is reminded why he does investigations for his Boston based company from a computer in Florida. Although Bogie wants to contact his ex-lover, Bailey Hampfield, he’s reluctant to do so since Bailey dumped him four years earlier. Knowing that Bailey had his child after she cut him loose, Bogie ponders how he can establish a relationship with the three year old daughter he’s never met. While he thinks about it, Bailey gets in touch with him and asks for protection. Someone is trying to kill her.

By the time Bogie meets Isabella, it’s apparent that he still loves the mother and adores the child. Bogie tells himself that he’s not interested in the BPD investigation into Bud’s death, but he continues to be drawn into it while trying to discover who is attempting to kill Bailey. The investigations seem to parallel each other, then intersect and become intertwined. As the story develops, Isabella, a precocious child obsessed with martial arts, slowly becomes the focus.

The underlying theme of this mystery is lies. Everyone seems to be running on lies and half truths. The only pure and true character is The Girl in White Pajamas.

About the Author

Chris Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When she returned to the States, Chris settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising a family.

For more than twenty years, Chris has been a member of the legal community performing investigative work for Boston law firms conducting business in rough housing projects and crack house neighborhoods.  Several years ago, while sitting in a courtroom with a client, Chris watched as a police officer was lambasted by an attorney. The attorney was defending a young woman who crashed her car into two other vehicles before she passed out drunk behind the wheel. The occupants of the other cars were seriously hurt and the cop, a former EMT, tried to assist the injured while waiting for ambulances to arrive. The attorney questioned the cop's every move, shredded his testimony and made him seem inept.
Embarrassed, the cop returned to his seat beside me and muttered, "Everybody lies. The judges lie, the lawyers lie, the witnesses lie.."  Chris wanted to tell him not to worry that in about five years he'd be just as good a liar as they were.
The seeds for The Girl in White Pajamas were planted in that courtroom.

Chris lives outside of Boston and in Palm Beach, Florida with her husband.

I don't know that I have told a big big lie before. I have told fibs to not hurt someones feelings. Usually I am too honest though. Rita Spratlen

Mandy Justin said...

Probably when I surprised my husband for his birthday with a surprise party. My lies aren't especially convincing so I came across as whiney."We can't go yet! I'm not readddddyyyyy…" *pout face* Yeah. But it worked.

Literary Winner said...

The cover kind of reminds me of a Kill Bill movie. Sounds like the plot is just as crazy!

Maria said...

Thanks for this giveaway! The biggest lie? Would have to be telling my Mom I slipped in a puddle at Italian school - the truth? I fell in a ravine while skipping!

becca said...

Not sure it would be called a lie but I have kept things private from other people.

Cyndi F said...

The biggest lie I have told was when I was a teenager, I was very bad, I am grown now and not bad like I was.. lol
So I guess to make a long story short, I made up a huge story to cover being hours late home, I told my mom that we went to a birthday party we never went to, then that the girl that we totally made up, had tryed to run away and there was huge drama so that was why we where hours late getting home.
My mom now knows the truth, we can laugh about it, but now i can catch any teenager in lies much easier.
thank you for the giveaway

valmg @ Mom Knows It All said...

Sounds like an interesting mystery. My Mom loves mysteries, I bet she'd like it.

Anonymous said...

Can't remember telling any BIG lies. Little white lies not to hurt feelings...well, of course, doesn't everyone?

The Positive MOM said...

This sounds like a Latin tele-novela. There is always a child who has never met his/her dad and unresolved love stories, as well as dysfunctional families. Sounds like one of my childhood favorites (not kidding!) LOL
