The Proof is in the Pudding

A Mystery Novel by Susan L. Paré

After Detective Donovan receives the call that wealthy millionaire Barbara Stiverson has been brutally murdered, he knows solving this case will not be easy. Everyone who was close to her could be the killer, as millions of dollars are at stake and everyone wants their share. There is no doubt, in his mind, that this murder was close up and personal.

A few weeks later, at a birthday celebration, Donovan watches as the guest of honor takes his last breath, falls to the floor, and dies. Donovan suspects that he was poisoned by someone in his family, but there is no proof to confirm his suspicions. Slowly, one by one, he starts to eliminate members of the family until only one is left.

For weeks Donovan struggles to solve these two unrelated cases. However, as the evidence piles up, he can’t rule out the fact that one man may be responsible for both deaths.


Fun Reading

for the  Entire Family

What a wonderful night in Columbus with The Books and Beer Club. I was told it was the largest attendance that they had ever had. We had a delightful discussion about my book, The House on Ludington Street. I signed many books and met some super people. I wish to thank them for their hospitality. I had a great time.

Crossing Sydney

No matter how sophisticated a reader you are, Crossing Sydney is going to surprise you. A unique plot that keeps you riveted until the very end where you'll find yourself going back to read the last few pages just in case you missed something. You didn't - you were delightfully and masterfully tricked.

 The Mayor's Son

A simple town, a simple time ... and two ghastly crimes. Having grown up in small town America, I appreciated the undercurrents throughout the story. Cops, parents, friends and neighbors thinking the know everything there is to know about the goings-on around town ... only to find out otherwise. I found Susan's work to be an entertaining read that flowed well, kept me engaged, and provided a sufficient amount of suspense all the way to the surprise ending. Well done ...
