Mike Bove Author- Bruce DelReno Mysteries STINGER MAQUIRE & WILLOWTREE

       Bruce DelReno Mysteries STINGER MAQUIRE & WILLOWTREE
       by Mike Bove
Taryn Maguire was good at hitting the shot called a stinger, good enough to get on the PGA Tour. Taryn was called Stinger. He was a top golfer and known as a humanitarian. He was brutally murdered after returning to his hometown, Willowtree, Arizona, for a charity event.
Bruce DelReno, a retired postman and golf enthusiast, found the body and becomes emotionally involved in the murder investigation. With his friends, including Ben Samuel, his Apache sidekick, he uncovers secrets long held by people in Willowtree.
When Stinger’s own secret is discovered it becomes a bigger story than his death. Fans of Willowtree, the first Bruce DelReno Mystery, will find more of Bruce’s unique relationships with friends, the police, witnesses, and suspects. And, of course, more of his dry humor, and love of his wife, dog, food, and golf.

Bruce DelReno plays a lot of golf.  Well, he’s retired because the Postal Service drove him to it.  His wife, a nurse, still works.  A lot.  So, Bruce frequents the Mesquite Hills Golf Club in the fictitious town of Willowtree, Arizona.
One day he finds bones near the course.  This discovery begins his pursuit of the killers  of three individuals whose bodies were found nearby, but 30 years apart.  This mild mannered ex-postman is emboldened by the police’s slow progress, and encouragement from his wife, and best friend, an Apache Indian.  Bruce’s investigating centers on a group of locals who grew up in Willowtree together.
There is murder, humor, golf, food, and local color in this tale, as well as twists and some interesting characters.  Beautiful desert willows grow wild in the area around Willowtree, contributing to the stability of the land and the sustenance of wildlife.  So does a certain weed that can be used in sinister ways. 

Mike Bove grew up in Vermont. 
He wrote articles and drew cartoons for his college newspaper.  Mike was involved as an actor and director in high school, college and community theater. He adapted a Russian folk tale, The Nosebag, for the stage, produced and directed it. He was a public school teacher, track, and soccer coach before moving to Cape Cod. There he became an avid fisherman and golfer. He joined the Postal Service, transferred to Sedona, retiring in 2010.

Jenny’s had it with her life. Six siblings in an overstuffed house are enough to drive anyone crazy, and sometimes she dreams of escaping to some fantasy world. When she suddenly wakes up to find herself being kissed by a strange—but very handsome—prince, Jenny knows her life just got a lot more exciting. Now stuck in a medieval land of castles and royalty, when Jenny learns that the queen has agreed to marry her off to the prince, it’s time to take matters into her own hands. She goes on a quest to find out who dragged her to this time while trying to keep from falling in love with either of the boys vying for her attention.

Princess Genevieve has only known life under her mother’s rule. She wants to do more than go to battle or deal with suitors. She wakes to find herself in a new world filled with gadgets, electricity, and moving carriages. She finally has the freedom to be who she wants to be with a family who cares deeply for her and a boy worth any sacrifice. It’s more than everything she always wanted.

As Jenny and Genevieve settle into their new lives, they face an unknown evil which threatens everything they care about and makes them face tough questions—like who they are and what they really want their lives to become.
