“I had the privilege to read the most delightful mystery, For the Birds, by Aaron Paul Lazar. If I had to categorize it, I’d call it a cozy with an unusual supernatural touch, but in all honestly, it was one of the most unique and refreshing mysteries I’ve read in a long time—with a huge surprise ending.”
Marilyn Meredith, (as F. M. Meredith) author of Angel Lost
No one could accuse Marcella Hollister's family of being normal. Her gorgeous Native American husband, Quinn, has a compulsive cleaning problem – which works for her, since she gets a pass on housework. Her mother, who insists on being called Thelma, loves picking on Quinn. And then there's Ruby. Sometimes Marcella isn't sure who Quinn loves more, his wife or his prized parakeet.
At the Adirondack National Bird Show, Thelma trips and falls into a pool with Ruby. Although both survive the ordeal, a bizarre link forms between them. When Thelma’s kidnapped from her hospital bed by a recently released felon, the FBI shows up asking questions about Thelma’s inheritance. Could it be linked to the biggest unsolved bank heist in history?
Across the rugged Adirondack park landscape, a brutal scenario evolves, where the good guys aren’t what they seem, and only Ruby’s newly acquired “Thelma-vision” provides slim hope for survival.
“...Lazar’s mystery offers an original and offbeat aspect of the genre that will hold your interest and increase your curiosity to look forward to the next book in the series.” - Warren Adler, author of The War of the Roses, Random Hearts and other novels and short story collections
Set in the Finger Lakes and Adirondacks regions of New York, Essentially Yours pits an MedicuRx, a big drug company with ties to the federal government, against essential oil pioneers who have found a potential cure for leukemia in the distilled oil found a commonly found lake weed.
Marcella Hollister, an ex-opera singer who runs an antique shop in Honeoye, NY with her Native American husband, Quinn, lives across the lake from an agoraphobic but darling woman named Callie Lissoneau. Callie, victim of a heinous crime years ago, has been mourning her big brother's disappearance since he went MIA in the Gulf War eighteen years ago.
When Callie is kidnapped and her older sister is found murdered, the chase through the Adirondack Mountains begins, where Marcella, Quinn, and a psychically gifted Bernese Mountain Dog named Beau find Sky hiding in the woods, afraid for his life and guarding the secrets of the potential cancer cure. MedicuRx will lose all if this drug is made public, and they push Callie hard to find Sky’s whereabouts.
The strange foursome join together to search for Callie before MedicuRx decides she’s no longer of use. Against a virtual army linked to a rogue wing of the federal government, Marcella, Quinn, Sky, and Beau fight to escape the MedicuRx helicopters, keep the vial of precious oil safe, and bring Callie home - alive.
When twelve-year-old Gus LeGarde and his two best friends, Elsbeth and Siegfried, stumble on a hermit’s cabin in the woods in the summer of 1965, they’re unprepared for Tully, the crotchety old man who sticks his head out the window and threatens to shoot them. But more surprising is Tully’s best friend, a young Indian girl spirit, Penaki, who reveals herself to the children by forming patterns with butterflies, rattling tin cups, drawing on dusty mirrors, and flipping book pages.
Tully’s past is shrouded in mystery, and Gus can’t understand why his mother hates Tully so. Gus is drawn into an intriguing mystery that reveals long-hidden truths about his grandfather, with even deeper ties to the Ambuscade and the history of the Genesee Valley region. Will Gus’s findings rewrite the most brutal chapter in the history of Livingston County?
