Welcome to No Ordinary Women Mysteries

The five members of the No Ordinary Women book club have a collective age of just over 250.  They have experienced some serious things in life–career changes, health problems, marriage difficulties. Throw in a hot flash or two, a few senior moments, and the kind of moxie you can acquire only by living life courageously.  In other words, these are people you know–your mother, your next-door neighbor, your sister, your best friend . . .

UPCOMING EVENTS

Festival_of_Crime_Promo-new

ANTHOLOGY LAUNCH – A FESTIVAL OF MURDER, Nineteen Tales of Murder and Suspense, by Twin Cities Sisters in Crime – 

Thurs, Sept. 11, 2014 7 PM at Once Upon a Crime, 604 W. 26th S., Minneapolis.

From Publisher’s Weekly:  “Among the better stories is Barbara Merritt Deese’s “Release,” set at a mass release of raptors rehabilitated in captivity, during which an abused woman finds her own release.”

Edgar Award winner, David Housewright, writes, “…Most of the tales in this surprisingly diverse collection are about bad girls–cool, cunning, courageous, caring, sentimental, sly, savage, sexy, wicked and eye-poppingly bad girls. Story after story is a revelation, filled with devious characters, perfect twists, and writing that’s sure to rough you up a little.”

MURDER AT SPIRIT FALLS:

“For those familiar with the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, MURDER AT SPIRIT FALLS incorporates many famous spots around the city. This whodunit fairly jumps off the page, with the women’s’ expertise in investigation providing the focal point for the plot. The lifestyle of the Cities shines through, and each character adds to the spirit of the tale.”

~ Shelley Glodowski, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

SPIRITED AWAY:

“The members of the No Ordinary Women Book Club are at it again in this second in a series of fun mysteries . . .  Author Deese has created a fun and realistic group of characters with a typical Midwestern flair.   Spirited Away blends elements of mystery and suspense with aspects of human interest, exploring cancer survival, mother/daughter relationships, and adjusting to a seniors environment . . ..”

~Valerie Porter at Valerietalksbooks.

FORGOTTEN SPIRITS:

Forgotten Spirits is the third novel in the series of Barb Deese’s No Ordinary Women mysteries – a series that keeps getting better and better.  For those who are already fans, you will be pleased that all the regulars are back, as sensitively and heartwarmingly portrayed as ever.  But Deese takes the reader on a more complex journey this time – into the troubled past of one of the No Ordinary Women book club members.

~Walter J. Roers, author of The Pact, Pathos Rising and Tyger! Tyger!
