Here’s the set-up:
It’s nearly midnight when Sherri Travis turns onto Last Chance Road and into a run-down gas station. Instead of the routine stop she expects, her pickup is stolen, and she is left stranded in the Everglades. Sherri is desperate for help, but the men who show up are just as dangerous as the swamp she is forced to flee into. When she stumbles upon a gruesome murder, she must depend on her wits to escape the Glades and the evil men who are stalking her.
Phyllis Smallman, winner of an Independent Publisher Book Award, brings you Sherri’s most frightening and spine tingling misadventure yet. It will transport you from a gritty crime scene in the Florida Everglades to a black-tie masquerade ball in Sarasota before reaching its shocking conclusion on a remote island in the Gulf of Mexico. Martini Regrets is the sixth book in the series.

“This is by and far the best book by Phyllis Smallman I’ve read to date. All her novels show professional control over the devices such as plotting, description and dialogue, but Martini Regrets simply took a good story line and rode it to a great ending. This book should be a break through work for her: from a pleasant diversion to an A position in mystery writing. Excellent dialogue, great use of description and pacing.” Don Graves ~ Canadian Mystery reviews

Here's the set-up:
With its seven-foot snakes and nasty horses, Florida ranch country can be as dangerous as the mean streets of any big city. Sherri Travis doesn’t do country. She likes it even less when she meets Clay Adams’ psychotic neighbors and finds a dead man in the back of her pickup. With fairy lights dancing through the Spanish moss and violent men closing in, the surprise birthday party Sherri plans for Clay turns deadly. And while it isn't the party Sherri hoped for, it's a good one just the same.
One Reviewer Notes:
Circling buzzards are not a good sign. That's what Sherri Travis learns in her fourth adventure in this entertaining series. When bars have names like The Gator Hole and girls are called Lovey Sweet, you must be in Florida. Sherri is a fast-talking, wise-cracking young woman who'd rather polish the bar at her Jacaranda tavern on the Gulf side than shop for fashion accessories. She's happier with beer and a burger than caviar and cognac. Money's tight, but she loves her customers and the laid-back coastal style. Her wealthy boyfriend Clay Adams has bought a ranch with a mansion that Sherri is helping to redecorate for a housewarming party. That's when the buzzards arrive... No one does Florida as well as Phyllis Smallman. I love hanging out with Sherri and her over-the-hill gang. It's the next best thing to spending the winter in the Sunshine State.

“”The dialogue is crisp, the jokes are funny and the setting as nutty as any city slicker can believe.

–Margaret Cannon, Globe & Mail



Here’s the set-up:

With its seven-foot snakes and nasty horses, Florida ranch country can be as dangerous as the mean streets of any big city. Sherri Travis doesn’t do country. She likes it even less when she meets Clay Adams’ psychotic neighbors and finds a dead man in the back of her pickup. With fairy lights dancing through the Spanish moss and violent men closing in, the surprise birthday party Sherri plans for Clay turns deadly. And while it isn’t the party Sherri hoped for, it’s a good one just the same.

 

One Reviewer Notes:


“This is the 4th of what I hope are many more mysteries involving Sherri Travis… Sherri’s wit gets sharper, funnier and yes, scarier. She’s a strong minded woman who’s not at all reluctant about saying her mind… which can/does lead to trouble. Author’s description of Florida is so right on accurate, it’s difficult to believe she isn’t a native Floridian. Not just the coastal life either… deeply into Florida. It’s perfect. WRITE ON, Phyllis!
