Driving full steam ahead with her life after the unexpected death of her husband, Annie Szabo was not planning on veering off course again. But her late husband's family, an outrageous and proud clan of Gypsies, has other plans. When Annie's oldest friend, Jerry, turns up dead, she is plunged back into the family she tried to leave behind.

Suspecting murder, Annie is forced to form an alliance with Madame Mina, her stubborn and powerful mother-in-law, the heart of the Szabo family. Determined to catch Jerry's killer, the two women must unlock the pattern of a tapestry wild with lawyers, criminals, kink, magic, and even more death. One thing is certain--to catch a killer with a hidden agenda, Annie and Mina must use all of their resources: ancient curses, a talent for petty theft, bizarre love magic, a Gypsy PI, and a strong sense of humor.

From the Inside Flap:

"An exciting debut. Meredith Blevins has written a thoroughly original first novel with characters you'll never forget."
--Tony Hillerman, bestselling author of Hunting Badger

"A terrific read of a truly intriguing, finely crafted mystery."
--Clive Cussler

Driving full steam ahead with her life after the unexpected death of her husband, Annie Szabo was not planning on veering off course again. But her late husband's family, an outrageous and proud clan of Gypsies, has other plans. When Annie's oldest friend, Jerry, turns up dead, she is plunged back into the family she tried to leave behind.

Suspecting murder, Annie is forced to form an alliance with Madame Mina, her stubborn and powerful mother-in-law, the heart of the Szabo family. Determined to catch Jerry's killer, the two women must unlock the pattern of a tapestry wild with lawyers, criminals, kink, magic, and even more death. One thing is certain--to catch a killer with a hidden agenda, Annie and Mina must use all of their resources: ancient curses, a talent for petty theft, bizarre love magic, a Gypsy PI, and a strong sense of humor.

Rising from the center of this mayhem is a strange Romany man, the Hummingbird Wizard. Appearing in Annie's life, and in Annie's bed, he could prove to be the only one to help her bring the scattered pieces of her life and community together. Or he could tear it apart forever in the wake of passion and horrible revenge.

In this sexy, witty, suspenseful, and wildly original novel, Meredith Blevins paints a portrait of a vibrant family, led by two bold women who refuse to let a little homicide ruin their enjoyment of life.

"Trouble in a fine-looking package; that fatal dynamic duo..."

"In The Hummingbird Wizard, Meredith Blevins covers new literary ground, introducing us to a fascinating, dark world, and pulling it off with flair and grace and humor."
-Jonathan Kellerman

"Damn fine book. A terrific read of a truly intriguing, finely crafted mystery. With The Hummingbird Wizard, Meredith Blevins explores new territory in a new dimension other authors have feared to go." -Clive Cussler

"Meredith Blevins has a sorcerer's command of language, an ear for electric dialogue.... A new master in the making." -Loren D. Estleman, multiple Spur and Edgar Award-winning author

"I had a splendid time with the unforgettable Szabos --particularly the unsinkable Madame Mina and the wizard himself, one of the sexiest heroes I've come across in a long while." -Julie Smith, Edgar Award-winning author of the Skip Langdon and Talba Wallis series

"The Hummingbird Wizard is a lively high-energy romp. I predict when you finish her book you will find yourself in a good mood." -Tim Sandlin, bestselling author of Sorrow Floats and Skipped Parts

About the Author:

Meredith Blevins is a fifth-generation Californian. She grew up in Los Angeles, and spent her adult life in Northern California. Her fantasy was to write for The National Enquirer and run away with the Gypsies. Instead, she attended college in California, worked as a music therapist, wrote textbook articles, and, following a circuitous path, became a financial columnist. She was an active member of the American Assn. of Business Journalists.

With a push from her family and husband, writer Win Blevins, she made the switch from non-fiction to fiction. Her first novel, The Hummingbird Wizard, garnered praise from the likes of Tony Hillerman, Jonathan Kellerman, Clive Cussler, Loren Estelmen, and Tim Sandlin.
