A Cure for the Winter Doldrums!

What if you could strengthen your immune system, lower your stress levels, diminish pain, and boost your energy all at the same time for just $.99?

Numerous studies have shown that the simple act of laughing can achieve all this and more,* and Buddhapuss Ink LLC, a publisher in Edison, NJ, has just released a surefire way to add more laughter to your life with the hilarious first installment in the Leslie and Belinda Mystery series: Daredevil by Tennessee author, Linda Browning. 

These two wise-cracking seniors have been described as Murder, She Wrote meets Laverne and Shirley. The reviews are just starting to come in and are calling this new series “Just fun!” and Daredevil “A book that keeps you smiling from start to finish.” Get down and dirty with these meddling residents of a retirement village in middle Tennessee who let their curiosity get the better of them. Sticky situations and comedic antics abound as Browning sets her characters loose. “Where others are winding down in retirement, Leslie and Belinda are just getting started. Browning‘s cozy mystery celebrates the second half of life with humor, delight and wit.” quipped Sam Hilliard, author of the #1 bestseller The Last Track. This pair of sassy, senior sleuths, Leslie and Belinda, are on the hunt for a missing girl; and it leads them on a crazy chase through a dark graveyard with Leslie’s eight-pound-dog, Riff-Raff, right in the middle of all the action. Buckle up and keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times; it’s going to be a bumpy (and hilarious) ride!

“Everyone at Buddhapuss Ink loves working with Linda. It's like a roller coaster unleashed and off the tracks!” said MaryChris Bradley, Publisher at Buddhapuss Ink. “Her characters are the kind of comic relief that cozy mystery readers love. Think Miss Marple with a penchant for shopping at the Dollar Store. Her stories are fast-paced reads that will leave you rolling on the floor. I want to live next door to Leslie when I retire!” 

Grab your copy of this hilarious eBook and join the laughter. Remember, it's good for you health.

Browning worked for many years in clerical and supervisory roles at the Clinton Valley Center in Michigan, but later followed her husband to Tennessee when he was asked to relocate. They are both happily retired (sort of) and living in a middle Tennessee retirement community. Linda rediscovered her love of creative writing after receiving a laptop for Christmas in 2011. She'd dallied in various crafty endeavors like quilting and painting, but it was her thirst for storytelling that really stuck. “Life is good and at 62 years of age…I’m finally getting going.”
