Hey, guys! One of my writing group buddies has a shiny new book right now, and I’m so excited to have her here to tell you a little bit about it. I know you’re going to love her, too!


Hello Elizabeth Andrews’s Blog readers! So excited to be here with you today! I’m Gabby Allan and Elizabeth has been nice enough to let me hang with you for just a little while. I’m super excited to introduce my new series to you! It’s a rom cozy–rom com and cozy mystery snuggled up on a beach drinking a Mai Tai! If you’re into that kind of thing, I think you’ll love this book and my characters Whitney Dagner and her cat Whiskers!

Thanks for giving me a look and have a great day!

Whitney Gagner is your tour guide to a Pacific paradise that’s to die for–only to find it’s a place people are willing to kill for–in Gabby Allan’s Much Ado About Nauticaling, first in the Whit and Whiskers Mystery series.

After far too many years in the Los Angeles corporate world, Whitney Dagner has come home to Santa Catalina Island off the California coast to help her brother Nick run Nautically Yours, the family tourism business. Between gift shop shifts selling all manner of T-shirts and tchotchkes and keeping her feline Whiskers in fine fettle, she pilots the Sea Bounder, a glass bottom boat showing tourists the underwater sights of aquatic plants, marine life–and a murder victim?

The self-proclaimed “Master of the Island,” Jules Tisdale was a wealthy man with business interests throughout Catalina who was about to be honored as Person of the Year before someone strangled him with is own tie and tossed his body into the water. That someone appears to be Nick, who had a raw deal from Jules and no alibi the night of the murder. To clear her brother’s name, Whit will have to investigate Jules’ shady associates and not exactly grief-stricken family members–with the unwelcome help of Felix Ramirez, police diver and Whit’s ex-boyfriend who’s looking to rekindle their relationship.
