Fresh off a fabulous Holiday Book Promotion for her new novel series, I caught up with Author, Kim Carter to see what has been happening with her and her successful novel launch held by Raven South publishing at “The Atlanta Water Gardens” where she launched book 2 of the series titled; “Murder Among The Tombstones,” as book 1 has been doing well titled; “Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle.”
Kim was also very excited as her agent submitted her books in several book awards and she is currently in First Place for a TCK Publishing 2017 readers choice award!! If you’d like her to WIN? You can go here Readers Choice Voting Page to vote for her in the Mystery Category for “Murder” on TCK!
Kim let me know it went FANTASTIC and they had about 60 or so attendees and signed many books! They had a book reading from “Murder” and her friend Lissha Sadler, Radio Host at “Lets Chat” and CEO of Writing Royalty Promotions , did a fabulous Question & Answer session with Kim. They had a ball! So I asked Kim what’s going on now? She is deep in writing book 3 of her series and just finished a new stand-alone mystery, and so far titled, “And The Forecast Calls For Rain.” She shared it will be a new story that takes place in and around Seattle Washington. So, readers, I can not wait for that new book! So let’s see what readers and book reviewers are saying about Books 1 & 2 of the novel series so far, shall we?
Book Reviews And But On Amazon ~ “Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle” and “Murder Among The Tombstones” Books one and two of “A Clara & Iris Mystery Series”…
“A mystery suspense thriller in every sense of the word!”
With eminently admirable characters and exquisite imagination ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a compelling read where author Kim Carter crafts mounting suspense that overwhelms skepticism.
Charming personality of renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Grant Chatsworth lures a small town waitress-Lizzie to a deceptive ‘blissful happy marriage’ until secrets confined within the walls of Buckhead’s finest estates elucidate Lizzie about the darker nasty shades of Grant’s propensity of crime and cruelty. Terrible adversity and troubled faith lead Lizzie to take refuge at her sister Maggie’s doorstep, where destiny has more alarming adventures in store for her.
Author Kim Carter’s read is a mystery suspense thriller in every sense of the word with an intriguing narrative that moves at a breakneck pace, skillfully combined with a writing style that provides vivid mental pictures of the settings and characters sufferings. While many things are not what they seem, everything amazingly connects in a surprising finale.
Entertaining enough to engage even reluctant readers, ‘Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle’ is a powerful 5-star page turner that is highly recommended. ~Enas Reviews

Sweet Dreams, Baby Belle by Kim Carter. 5 Stars!
What a wonderful exciting suspenseful mystery!
So much intriguing twists and turns it had me completely spellbound.
And omg I fell in love with Clara and Iris, those two old ladies were a hoot. Grant and Lizzy are the couple that the story revolves around, their perfect life is not what it appears to be. He’s a very dangerous man and will go to extremes to accomplish his goal, even trying to eliminate those who double cross him.
Clara the nurse that works for Grant discovers things that not only play a huge part of the core of this story, but she also becomes, along with her friend Iris one of the most hilarious characters ever.
A rich surgeon, a Ponzi scheme, a few murders, 2 old ladies, a deranged housekeeper, some monkeys, and a wife on the run plus a ghost. Hmmmmmm, what would they have in common? Now there is a mystery that is begging to be solved!!
I have voluntarily read and reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book by its author. ~Reviewer for Nook Books and More Blog.
“Joined by their young apprentice Quita, Clara and Iris are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before they can strike again. But, will their bodies be the next ones discovered among the tombstones?”
Editorial and Reviews: “Murder Among The Tombstones”
“Widows on The Case!”
Two crafty septuagenarian widows turned private investigators; a crabby Atlanta cop recovering from a gunshot wound, and a cunning killer who dumps his victims rather appropriately in cemeteries. Those are just a few of the zesty ingredients in Murder among the Tombstones, the latest whodunit by Georgia-based mystery writer Kim Carter. It is a fast-paced, twister of a mystery that keeps you turning pages until the very end.
Private Investigators Iris Hadley and Clara Samples may be in their seventies, but don’t think they are over the hill. These ladies are witty, wily and with it. A Must Read!

This is the first book I’ve read by Ms. Carter, and I was encouraged to take the plunge and buy the Kindle edition by the positive reviews of others. Boy was I in for a treat! Ms. Carter is an outstanding writer who has very interesting characters and well-thought-out plot and subplots with all the twists and turns that make you want to continue reading the next chapter even though it’s well past your bedtime. I’m definitely looking forward to her next book, and I’ll be checking out her previous works too!####

Murder Among The Tombstones by Kim Carter 5 Stars!
One of the best Intense, Amazing and Hilarious Murder/Mysteries that I have read this year!!
A crime story about two old ladies who are private investigators. Brilliant!!
Clara and Iris have become two characters I absolutely love and can’t wait to see what they investigate and uncover next, lol…
This story also brings back some characters from the book Sweet Dreams Baby Belle. That book is where you first meet Clara and Iris, detectives Pitt and Nettles along with a great cast of new people like Quita and Sugar in this story.
Get lost in a story about a murder mystery that will leave you guessing until the end who did it. It also will leave you laughing at what Clara and Iris do and say.
I absolutely love this book and have found me a wonderful new author that has me captivated by her stories. Touche!
