Patricia A. Bremmer, born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, has carried a passion for mysteries and word puzzles since childhood when she devoured every Perry Mason book she could find. She rarely left a word scramble unsolved in the Omaha World Herald paper during her elementary school years. Her fondness for libraries and bookstores never waned. Bremmer traveled across the United States with her thoroughbred racehorses for fifteen years before taking her experiences and settling down to a quiet place in western Nebraska. Bremmer collaborated with a screenplay writer to write her first novel Tryst With Dolphins. She did so out of pure frustration with so many unbelievable mystery stories in film and print full of I would never do that & that would never happen moments, where reality gets lost and clues for the reader never exist. After the success of her first novel Bremmer penned a sequel titled Dolphins' Echo. Her third book Death Foreshadowed cemented the role of her sleuth, Detective Glen Karst. Victim Wanted: Must Have References, the fourth book in her series brings Detective Karst s personal life to center stage. Bremmer's dear friend, Detective Karst, is also a real person, and an active member of law enforcement in Denver Colorado. His extensive background in homicide investigation, drug work, and SWAT make certain that Bremmer's stories remain true to life and believable. Since Detective Karst is rare, even among a select few in law enforcement, Bremmer incorporated him into her novels as her sleuth. The real detective is handsome, charming, and has a genuine respect for all people he encounters on and off the job. Detectives are usually not complimented on their decency by the suspects they are arresting, but Karst is an exception to that fact. Not only does the real and fictional Detective Karst take crime solving to the extreme, he looks good doing it! As a source of insider humor Bremmer has used the names and likenesses of people she has met during her travels across the U.S. with the horses. She is often asked if a certain character is meant to be a mutual acquaintance to which Bremmer only replies Maybe! All of Bremmer's novels contain an Elusive Clue word puzzle hidden somewhere in the book. The puzzle is varied in each book but when the letters are unscrambled it always names the murderer. Bremmer is complimented often with her unique writing style. She writes with a quick stride keeping the story alive and the characters hopping. Light mystery readers can breeze through the books in a weekend while the desires of serious mystery purists will be quenched with a plot that challenges the mind. Either way Bremmer's fans are always satisfied with this new approach to the solvable whodunits. Bremmer is the mother of three. She has six grandchildren. Together with her husband, Martin, they own and operate a dog kennel (a childhood dream). She has shown, trained and raised dogs for over thirty years.Review:
What a perfect gift to present with a pet for Christmas! (Or just a perfect pick for anyone who likes dogs.) The author combines humor with the sweet tale of two Christmas puppies. From the very first pages, the reader knows the tale will be told with a smile. Sharon holds a list adjacent to text that asks her what she wants for Christmas. The photo shows that Sharon is missing her two front teeth. Sharon is holding a list that asks for a puppy and two front teeth. The children will giggle! The reader will also enjoy the use of white throughout the story. On one level, white is the color the dogs need to camouflage themselves, but on another level, it is the constant theme that runs through the story. What a perfect book to find in a pet store! --Writer's Digest
