9780615700892: The Haunted Housewives of Allister, Alabama (Cleo Tidwell Paranormal Mysteries, No. 1)

Who knew one gaudy Velvet Elvis could lead to such a heap of haunted trouble? When Cleo Tidwell said, "I do," for the third time, she had no idea her marriage vows would be tested by a tacky piece of art. But Cleo's not the kind of woman to let a velvet-offense-against-good-taste just hang--oh no, she's on a mission to oust the King. Trouble is, Elvis won't leave the building. And he's attractin' all manner of kooks, fanatics, and lookie loos to Cleo's doorstep, including the entire congregation of the Church of the Blue Suede Shoes. Everyone wants a piece of the painting, but Cleo's starting to suspect that whatever's haunting the Velvet Elvis wants a piece of her husband. Why else would her hubby trade in his car for a '56 pink Caddy, moonlight as an Elvis impersonator, and develop a sudden hankering for fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches? Certainly it can't be anything as simple as a mid-life crisis, because Cleo is not getting divorced again -- her mother would never let her hear the end of it. Cleo's life is all shook up by crazies with death threats, psychic warnings "from beyond," kidnapping attempts, invitations to join the Blue Shoe Loonies, and even murder! Cleo Tidwell's in a fight for her life, her marriage, and the perseverance of good taste everywhere.

Review:

"Sullivan is the new mistress of humor in horror and in the paranormal. She has proper irreverence for her own setting, characters, and background. She has captured the cultural self-deprecation that is appreciated by few cultures outside of the south-eastern United States ... This is cultural satire with three-dimensional characters. ... It builds gradually and then unleashes in a most disturbing climax and a satisfying ending. The experience is well worth the full journey of the story. --Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing

"Cleo Tidwell has taste, sass, and heart. Unfortunately, she also has a velvet painting of Elvis. So begins a fast-paced, fun, and compulsively readable romp. The Burg gave us Stephanie Plum, Las Vegas gave us Lucky O'Toole, and now, Allister, AL, presents us with Cleo Tidwell."
 -- Lane Robins, critically acclaimed author of Maledicte, Kings and Assassins, and the Shadows Inquiries series (as Lyn Benedict)

"Funniest novel I've read since Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy." -- New Myths.com

"Laugh out loud funny, with solidly defined characters, each more quirky and oddly enjoyable than the last. Five stars!" -- The Jeep Diva

"Part mystery, part ghost story, this humorous whodunnit will have you humming Elvis tunes and watching for the King himself to come gyrating through your door." -- Jason Jack Miller, award-winning author of Hellbender and The Devil and Preston Black
