"Connie Shelton gets better with every book she writes." --The Midwest Book Review USA Today bestseller Connie Shelton puts her own real-life experience to work in this, the ninth Charlie Parker mystery. Three days before the start of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, balloon pilot Rachael Fairfield walks into the offices of RJP Investigations. She has received threatening notes, which she believes came from her father, a convicted felon whom she sent to prison fifteen years earlier. To complicate matters, her brother has initiated a huge publicity campaign for the world altitude record Rachael plans to attempt on the final Sunday of the Fiesta. It seems simple enough. Charlie and Ron will locate William Fairfield and keep him away from Rachael for the duration of the Fiesta. But as they follow leads on William Fairfield, the threats escalate and Ron and Charlie start to wonder whether he's really the stalker. Amid the color and beauty of the world's largest ballooning event, Charlie also finds herself at odds with her husband and reassessing her life's priorities. Only when she nearly loses her own life do the answers begin to fall into place.

For many years, friends would ask me when I was going to include my hot air balloon experiences in a mystery novel. With Balloons Can Be Murder, I finally did! I must admit that setting a real altitude record was not nearly so drama-ridden as the story in this book. I was never under threat, as Rachael is in the story.
I did, however, have a great crew and some terrific friends who helped me achieve the record--most notably, the late Carol Rymer-Davis, who was such a help and inspiration to me. Ballooning lost a great lady when she perished on a flight in 2010.
Bestselling author Connie Shelton draws upon her own experience as a pilot who holds a high altitude record in hot air balloons for the storyline in her current Charlie Parker mystery. In addition to writing more than a dozen books in this series, Shelton is also the author of the new Samantha Sweet mystery series and the creator of the Novel In A Weekend writing course.
