“Take the Body and Run”



2016 Kindle Scout Winner!

Macey’s first day in the college employee relations department ends with a knife at her throat.

Macey is certain things can’t get any worse. She’s wrong. An angry employee vows to put her on an online hit list. When he turns up dead, she’s a suspect-and on the hit list.

To keep her secrets and her life, Macey partners with two unexpected allies who cause her pulse to race with steamy attraction-and exasperating annoyance. Vince, a handsome, driven lawman, digs up more than just clues to the brutal murder. Brett, a fun-loving pathologist with a deadly sense of humor, drives everyone crazy with his fart machine-will travel. Macey’s supersized black cat Wikket, possessing courage, curiosity, and crankiness in equal portions, assists in his own grumpy, feline fashion, golden eyes open and claws extended.

About the Author:

KINDLE SCOUT WINNER Jada Ryker snagged the Kindle Press publishing contract for her book, Take the Body and Run, through Amazon’s Kindle Scout program. The contemporary mystery/romance is about a hunted woman hiding under a dead friend’s identity, a handsome lawman, a death doctor with fart machine-will travel, and a cranky cat with a nose for crime.

Jada is the author of Dog Days of Karma, the first Carr-Maah Consulting mystery/paranormal novel; A Pink Zombie, with a Mist, a Shaken, Not Stirred, mystery/horror adventure; and Murder Takes a Dare, the first book in the Takes a Dare mystery series. The books combine humor and murder in a total package of entertaining and fun southern adventures. At the same time, Jada sketches in addiction/recovery issues and childhood angst with a deft and compassionate touch.

Jada spent the first twenty-odd years of her life in rural Kentucky, many of those years without electricity or running water. In her writings, Jada draws upon her early years of deprivation.

She now lives in central Kentucky with her wonderful husband and their cat, rescued from the animal shelter. In her day job, Jada works in higher education. She holds a masters degree in public administration.

Jada’s mystery adventures are available on Amazon in electronic and paperback formats.

Wow! If you love mystery’s then this is the book for you!! One of my favorite genres, and this did not disappoint! It has a little bit of everything, murder….suspense….sexy lead characters…and humor to boot. It’s fascinating and wonderful and definitely a page turner!!! Flows nicely and I look forward to checking out other books from this author!! Loved it!

Not only was it an amazing book, it has won awards! It is a Kindle Scout Winner!! Who doesn’t love a little mystery with cute men and a feline sidekick?? Macey is a young woman starting at a new job… Who knew by the end of the day she’d have a knife to her throat, enemies, and become a suspect in a murder. To top it all of she is on a hit list for aggravating an already angry customer at her first day on the job.

The first day on a job is always tough, but can you imagine your life going up in flames on that same day?? I can’t! This book is amazing and fast paced, and there is so much going on that it makes you want to read the whole book in one setting. Unfortunately, with 3 kids that is hard for me to do! But it is totally worth the read!!

It has relatable characters and you just have to love Macey the main character, poor girl! Her life is falling apart around her and all on the first day of her new job,I felt so sorry for her! Luckily, she has an awesome feline sidekick Wikket and two drool worthy men now in her life. Brett and Vince become two men that she can count on while she is on this crazy rollercoaster, even though they both drive her crazy!

Overall, an amazing book! You should definitely check it out! πŸ™‚
