I enjoyed these books set in and around Calgary featuring a camera tech who becomes an amateur sleuth. It's a pity that the author has not written more after only three books.

Selected for the Canada Day Release Challenge hosted by gypsysmom, June 23 - July 2 2012, releasing books by Canadian authors and this year's theme - books by author Margaret Laurence. Suzanne North is a Canadian author living in Saskatoon.

Good choice rureading. I've read the other two books by this author Seeing is Deceiving and Bones to Pick and enjoyed them both. I've never been able to get my hands on this book which is apparently the first so I am really thrilled to receive it from you. (And I'm disappointed to learn that there are only 3 books in this series.)

I'm so glad rureading sent me this book. Not only does it complete the series for me but it gives me a book from Alberta for hyphen8's 2013 Canadian Reading Challenge.

Phoebe Fairfax is a videographer who works 2 days a week for a lifestyle show in Calgary which pays the bills so she can continue to make short nature films. She lives southwest of Calgary on an acreage that used to belong to her uncle and it is around there that she does most of her film work. For the lifestyle show she is also close to home at a spa ranch that caters to the wealthy. It is a little disconcerting for Phoebe to be at The Ranch since when she was last there she discovered a body in the pool. The woman apparently committed suicide by taking pills and booze and then getting into the pool where she drowned. Except some people don't think she committed suicide; they think she was murdered. And that theory gains more credence when another body shows up that was definitely murdered because a sashimi chef's knife was thrust into his chest. The sashimi chef is a friend of Phoebe's and she knows he could not have been the one who did this. So who is the murderer?

There's lots of great description about the countryside which is a beautiful part of the country. There is also some interesting detail about cameras and film and videos. I had never really thought about the difference between a film and a video until I read this book.

I'm going to save this book for my 2013 Canada Days release challenge since the theme is the mystery genre.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Needing a coffee after accompanying my husband on a delivery we stopped here and I got an iced coffee which tasted great when the temperature was 31 or 32 or 33 (depending on which outdoor thermometer you looked at -- no matter what it was hot!). I left this book on a chair on the outdoor patio.

This release is for the 2013 Canada Days release challenge which seeks to get Canadian books out into the wild. Happy Canada Day!
