Jacqueline D'Acre launches mystery novel, Foreclosure.

Good news at last.  After a delay due to family illness, local author Jacqueline D'Acre will launch her latest book at Brodie Library on February 1 at 7 pm.

Jacqueline D’Acre was born and raised in Fort William, the oldest of eight Cryderman children. (She is the sister of race car driver Joel Cryderman and Della Cryderman, horse trainer.)
In 1977 she moved to San Francisco where she attended the University of San Francisco and from there moved to New Orleans where she lived for thirty years, working in her own company Great Ideas Productions as a film and video director and writer and soaking up the unique New Orleans’ culture. She had two children and lives with her daughter Catherine to this day. In 1998 her first novel Between Extremities was published and she enjoyed many book signings in the Deep South as well as in Thunder Bay.

Her second novel, Foreclosure, was published two years ago but did not have a book launch due to the extreme illness of her daughter. Thankfully all that has passed and now she can enjoy the publication of this mystery novel which is set in New Orleans. The amateur sleuth in the book is a Thunder Bay native! 
Here is a little info about this fine book.
What do murder, horses and Lila’s Creole Diner have I common?
 Head down to St. Tremaine Parish near New Orleans and find out! Meet Bryn Wiley, a mild equine writer, who discovers a show horse breeder facing financial ruin, foreclosure and far worse! Then the sheriff fingers  a champion stallion as a killer….but Bryn believes otherwise. Where there are horses, there is money, deception and powerful secrets.
Can Bryn unmask the real murderer before the stallion gets a lethal injection? In the sultry Louisiana heat she roams New Orleans seeking a slayer—in a desperate race to save the stallion. The story drips with sweat, Spanish moss, a voodoo queen, blooded horses and quirky Deep South characters.
 “…vivid and sultry and tumultuous…populated by a Mardi Gras of characters…in which imagination is invited to get up and dance…” Charles Wilkins

The book launch of Foreclosure by Jacqueline D'Acre will be held Feb 1, Wednesday, at the Fireplace Room at the Brodie Street library at 7 PM. Charles Wilkins will be a guest speaker, refreshments will be served and  there will be an author reading followed by a Q & A.

Hope to see you there!

Foreclosure is available now at both Chapters and Northern Woman's Bookstore.
