The Saturday Puzzle-Contest! Plus, More Open Contests! — Have fun!
Saturday, June 18th, 2022

It’s Saturday after a long week of rushing to THE END of a book and finishing up edits for other authors. I took the last three days to clean my desk and office, re-jigger my calendar (so I’m ready for the next rush to THE END!), and make a really big To Do list.

I mentioned the string of bad luck we’ve had here at the Devlin house, right? Two long power outages, losing internet for an entire day, the AC crashing for days—well, add to that the dishwasher going on strike, too. Apparently, I’m the only one who knows how to wash dishes by hand. 🙄  I think I need to sage the entire house…

Anyways, today I plan to get two swims in, while cleaning our slightly greenish pool, work on a couple of sets of edits, and make some notes about what I want to have happen in the next MBH book—what funny takedowns my bounty hunters can do—wait, a second! Maybe you can help me with that…

Saturday Puzzle-Contest

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card, give me an idea for a fun or exciting takedown of a criminal that my bounty hunters can do! Doesn’t have to be a good idea, doesn’t have to take much thought. This is for fun, folks!

In the meantime, you do know I have a book coming out next Tuesday, right? Victoria’s Six is set in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Get a feel for the setting of the book by solving this puzzle! And if you haven’t already pre-ordered your copy, follow this link: Victoria’s Six

    I am not that big on coming up with ideas for story lines. Kind of why I am a reader rather than a writer. Love that picture of the mountains in your puzzle though. Beautiful! To give you a better idea of why I don’t write, how ’bout if they just go to the door and knock? Yeah, too boring. Not a book there. Unless . . . Well, one never really knows who will answer the door and what may happen. All yours now. 😀

    I may not have a good idea but it could be funny. How about at a dog show and all the dogs get free and cause trouble.

    How about a chasing the bad guy in a car, but the bad guy’s car spins out, has a flat then hops a fence into a field, but the field has a bull in it & the bad guy has to head back toward the good guy to flee the bull.

    The team has to go to a spa to capture the suspect and they end up seeing each other in various states of undress. Of course, they learn things about each other and make comments. Get your mind out of the gutter! Things like embarrassing tattoos and unexplained scars.

    2:39 That is gorgeous inspiration, Delilah!

    As for takedown ideas, in the freezer section at the grocery store? Amidst frozen turkeys and the apple pies?

    When they stumble across the suspects while in the drive-thru line at the local fast-food joint?

    At a drive in? Where they decide to pose as servers bringing a food order on roller skates?

    Clearly I’m all about the food, LOL!
