Patricia Gligor, Guest Author

This week my guest is Patricia Gligor (sounds like tiger), one of my favorite authors. Her Malone Mystery series had kept me intrigued and entertained. With her latest book coming out, I'm looking forward to some quality reading. I think you'll enjoy her post and learning about her latest book. Welcome, Patricia!

  Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day

I love St. Patrick’s Day and, although there isn’t a drop of Irish blood in my veins (that I know of), I’ve always been drawn to the culture. Which is no doubt why I chose to make the main character/s in my Malone mystery series Irish.

Marnie Malone and her younger sister, Ann, were raised by their Irish grandmother who instilled in them the value of their Irish heritage. One of Nana’s favorite sayings was, “If you’re lucky enough to be Irish, you’re lucky enough.” 

In my new release, the fifth book in the Malone mystery series, those words will be put to the test.

Here’s the blurb for Marnie Malone:  

Someone is stalking Marnie.

It’s Marnie’s last week at the law firm of Cliburn & Reeves and she feels like she’s riding an emotional roller coaster. Up when she wins the divorce and custody battle for Callie Jackson against her abusive husband, Jed. And plummeting down when one witness after another decides not to testify against Mark Hall, an attorney at another Charleston firm and an “alleged” serial rapist.

Marnie receives one threat after another and she constantly feels the need to look over her shoulder, convinced that someone is stalking her. With Sam out of town on business, she’s alone in the big, old farmhouse and strange things are happening. Noises in the attic, creaking floorboards and someone watching her from the woods.

As she tries to determine the identity of the stalker, the list of men who have grudges against her grows longer each day. In her line of work she’s made enemies. Is the stalker someone from the past or one of the men on her list? And, how far will he go?

Marnie Malone will be released on March 14th.  It can be ordered through your local book store and is available online (along with the first four books in the series, each of which may be read as a standalone) at:


Barnes & Noble:

If you enjoy reading Marnie Malone, I hope you’ll take the time to write a review.
Happy Reading!

  3. Looking forward to reading your new novel. It's going to the top of TBR list.

    1. Wow, Evelyn! Thank you! Tomorrow is the Big Day (on Amazon) but I found out yesterday that my book is already available on Barnes & Noble. I haven't spoken with my publisher (he's out of town) so I'm not sure how or why that happened. But, it's fine with me. :)

  4. I love the cover photo, Pat, and am looking forward to this book. I'm Irish and also look forward to the wearing of the green on St. Patrick's Day.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Jean. My step-mother, like you, is Irish and every year she goes to The Cracker Barrel for corned beef and cabbage. :)

    1. Thanks, Amy! I had a lot of fun writing it.
