Let’s Talk with Maggie Toussaint

Release Day!
By Maggie Toussaint

My last Lindsey & Ike novella, “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” releases today, Nov. 2. The third in this romantic mystery series, “Dead Men” is a fitting send off for this couple. Lindsey started the series temporarily holding the family newspaper business together, and now she’s the fulltime editor of the weekly paper. Ike started and ended the series as sheriff, but he has a new set of priorities that revolve around Lindsey.

You see, all those years ago in high school, Lindsey was the One that Got Away. They both moved on, but Ike always wondered how things would be if they got together.

Lindsey had no intention of settling down in her hometown – she’d built a life for herself elsewhere – but now that she’s home and dating Ike, there’s no place she’d rather be.

“Dead Men Tell No Tales” begins with a hunting accident that is more than it seems. In fact, the theme of this novella is that things are not as they seem. It’s up to Lindsey & Ike to figure out what’s going on.

Lindsey’s trusty sidekick, Bailey has a starring role in this final adventure.

Later this year, this series will be issued as a digital and print boxed set. Meanwhile, here’s the link to the Kindle edition: BUY NOW

A pivotal scene from this story occurs at a diner. What’s your fav thing to order at a diner? Two commenters will receive a Kindle format edition of the first novella in the series, “Really, Truly Dead.”

  1. My Winners are Joanie Hinton and Mssbest

  2. A good cheeseburger!

  3. I love the fresh pies.

  4. We eat breakfast every Sunday at our diner. When we go for lunch, I like the tuna melt, the shrimp salad, or the grilled cheese with tomato. With chips rather than fries on the side.

  5. tinawhittle says

    Pie and coffee! Bonus points if the pies are in one of those spinning display cases and the coffee in white ceramic mugs.

    • Pie is a favorite of mine, but I seem to like every kind. Just when I think I have a favorite (key lime, pecan, apple, peach,…) I taste something else that’s fantastic. Maybe someday we’ll meet for pie and coffee (or tea in my case).

  6. Shirley Cochran says

    Hamburger as it is hard to mess that up but when it is done right there is nothing like it!

  7. Joanie Hinton says

    Denver omelet with hash browns (extra crisp) and lots of bacon and sourdough toast….

  8. Kathleen Kendler says

    Breakfast- anytime

  9. Breakfast, eggs, bacon, hasbrowns and toast and of course coffee.

  10. I’d go for a BLT.
