JUSTICE BURIED
 by Patricia Bradley 



Winner of an Inspirational Readers’ Choice Award in
Patricia Bradley
Suspense, Patricia Bradley lives in North Mississippi with her rescue kitty, Suzy, and loves to write suspense with a twist of romance. Her Logan Point series is available at all on-line retailers and major bookstores. In September 2017, Justice Buried, the second book in the Memphis Cold Case Novels will release.


Welcome, Patricia. How do people react when they find out you write?
I don’t get a lot of reaction until people discover what I write. Then they look sideways at me and say, “You don’t look like someone who writes about murder.” And I tell them, “But I kill them nicely.”

Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
I write almost exclusively on the computer. Started out on a portable Royal typewriter, and if I hadn't gotten a computer, I doubt I would have ever written a novel. :) No way could I ever get a clean copy! 

What was the main inspiration for the new book? Had the idea been on your mind for a while or just popped into it one day?
I’m writing a series of novels on cold cases set in Memphis, and the Pink Palace, which is a museum, was such an intriguing place when I grew up that I knew I wanted to set a story there. I contacted them and they gave me an amazing tour of the museum from the attic to the basement, looking for places to hide a body. 

Lighting Round:
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? - I like them both! But if push comes to shove, the beach

Y’all or You Guys? - Definitely Y’all

Biscuits or Dinner Roll? - Dinner roll—homemade 

Spring, summer, winter, or fall? - It used to be fall, but after some of our winters, Spring has sprung ahead.

Laptop or Desktop? - A Macbook Pro Laptop 

Mug or teacup? - MUG. I break teacups.

Please tell us a little about your novel, Justice Buried.
In an effort to get her security consulting business off
the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she's ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she's out of her league--and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he's the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.

    this was a fun interview.
    It sounds like an interesting book.
    I definitely prefer printed books.
    For Mothers Day my husband got me a tablet and I have read some books from that but it just doesn't feel the same. To me there is something comforting about a paper book. May be that is why my husband and I have bookshelves full of paper books. And our kiddos are the same.

  4. I enjoy Patricia Bradley's books and look forward to reading each one as it comes out. I would love to win this one. My reading preference is print books. There are various reasons but one reason is that I never have to lose time reading while the print book is on the charger. :) Frankly, I don't think everything has to be electronic to enjoy it. I forgot in the first post to include my email address: grandaddya[at]Comcast[dot]net.

  14. Patricia I love that you got a tour of the museum and tried to find places to bury a body! That must have been quite a conversation starter, lol! I really love a well-researched story.
    I had to chuckle at your comment about "killing them nicely", I'm not sure how one does that but it put a funny scene in my head! Like "sorry ma'am, but I have to kill you now. Could you please look away?"...HAHA! I could just see the headlines for that one!
    What a fun interview. I've always like reading your blog Patricia & how personable you are.

    I have "Justice Delayed" thanks for the chance to add "Justice Buried" to it!

  17. I will say print and I think because it seems like I can read them faster. But this last year or so I've come to appreciate the portability of ebooks. And the fact that I can read in bed w/o disturbing my husband--using the black screen and no page turning noises. Thx for a great interview. Loved the I kill them nicely comment. Jo, I follow your blog! Here's hoping…
