Real testimonials from super-sleuthing fans

Banking on Deceit plays out in the City of Seminole, on the west coast of Florida.

As the real-life Mayor of Seminole, I especially enjoyed trying to figure out who stole Chloe’s sapphire and diamond ring from a safe deposit box in 'my' city.  Page by page this theft got more interesting leading to a trail of murder, kidnapping and threats!”  - your Mayor  

"A very enjoyable read!  Great casual mystery with suspenseful twists and turns.  The characters were both believable and entertaining, particularly Chloe and her dog, Brutus.  Loved the character bantering.  Also enjoyed the tension between the main character and her romantic interest, which added another layer of suspense.  If this is the beginning of a series, I am looking forward to reading the next installment." - N. C.


"Fun mystery in local Florida setting The clues to this murder mystery were uncovered one by one, and fitted together by a successful Toni Jasper.  Having been a longtime fan of the "Murder She Wrote" TV series, I enjoyed the characters and intrigue of the story, and the aha moments leading to the climax and conclusive ending." - B. C. 

"I thoroughly enjoyed your book! I found the characters to be very relatable, and I was unable to put the book down. I just kept reading and turning pages, wanting to assist Toni in solving the mystery and finally determine 'who done it!' Loved Bubbles the cat, as well as all of the local Tampa Bay area references. Keep them coming . . . ." - J. M.

"I loved Banking on Deceit and the members of our writing group did too! 

Thanks for writing it." - J. C. 

Watch for the sequel!

Of course, Toni Jasper can't leave well enough alone. She'll be nosing around a few new, sinister situations, especially when she encounters clever, financially devious people who are Operating on Duplicity. But - are they clever enough to get away with murder?
