Triple Threat

Triplets, a tornado, and twisted lies add up to trouble for Taylor Madison as Perdue's townfolk gather for Hank Barton's funeral.

Why do the three identical sisters dislike each other so much? Why did Hank put such an odd codicil in his will?

Throw in swaggering new deputy, a citizen's police academy, and an amateur tornado hunter, and Taylor find herself longing for the comparative peace of big city life!

Book 3 of the Taylor Madison series

A Hard Shell Word Factory Release

Elizabeth Dearl

Elizabeth Dearl is a former Texas police officer who also owned a small bookstore for several years. Her short mysteries have appeared in Woman's World, Mystery Net, Mystery Time, Blue Murder, Futures, Britain's Fiction Feast and many other magazines.


"Ms. Dearl offers a double dose of engaging mystery in Triple Threat. In Buyer's Remorse, Taylor Madison charges to the rescue when her friend gets a steal of a deal as she buys a house at auction. Stealthy footsteps and a mournful ghost soon convince them that the deal is too good to be true. Triple Threat revolves around a man's dying wish to reconcile his grown triplets: Lily, Rose, and Iris. A simple provision in his Will sparks a complicated dance of personalities and intrigues as old secrets threaten the sisters' bequests. Triple Threat offers many a chuckle on its blithe trip through the cobwebs of human behavior. I had some difficulty putting the book down, but no matter. I'll get the laundry done another day. For readers in search of light entertainment, both intriguing and amusing, Triple Threat is a winner."

Jeanette Cottrell -- eBook Reviews Weekly

"Triple Threat, like Dearl's previous Taylor Madison mysteries, Diamondback and Twice Dead, is completely absorbing. I cannot praise the characterization and writing style enough. The author blends her personal expertise in forensics, investigative procedures and police work with a uniquely witty dialogue and description to produce a tantalizing blend of intrigue, romance and excitement that's truly unforgettable. If you haven't yet read a Taylor Madison mystery, do yourself a favor and pick one up now."

Maureen McMahon, author of Shadows in the Mist

"Using Taylor as narrator, but with plenty of dialogue so that one quickly forgets the first person point of view dominates, Elizabeth Dearl writes with an easy tone and dry humor about a town full of life-like characters. In fact, the town could almost be considered a character in itself. The plots in both these stories are many layered. It doesn't matter whether or not you guess the solution to the mysteries, though you may change your mind several times. The enjoyment of them lies in who, how, and why, rather than in what. Triple Threat offers two entertaining cozy mysteries in one. Why not take advantage of this good deal? And if you haven't read the earlier novels, I highly recommend them as well."
