I had fun researching for the book. I took a day trip to Chattanooga and spent an entire day exploring the city and taking pictures. I must have taken over 200 pictures. It was fun eating at a couple of the well-known restaurants and visiting the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. Most of the places I mention in the book are real and you could visit them if you wanted to. I've already had someone tell me they wanted to visit the English Rose Tea Room across from the Chattanooga Choo-Choo. I hope you find a place you'd like to visit.
All of my books are humorous and I hope that when they are read they will give the reader a little time of respite from the stresses of the day. There is encouragement between Trixie and her best friend Dee Dee and they also help each other strengthen their faith. But I don't take a baseball bat and hit you over the head with a particular message. I just want my readers to enjoy a good clean mystery without having to worry about compromising their morals and do it while having a little fun.
