My Teaser for this week is from

Taking Out The Trailer Trash

Happy Times RV Park

by Janice Ivy

Taking Out the Trailer Trash by [Ivy, Janice]



Genre: Mystery

 My teaser from 4% in the eBook.

She sat down at her desk and lit a cigarette and took a long satisfying drag. One of her brother’s lines about smoking came to mind: “I’m almost ready to start thinking about thinking about quitting.” Yeah, that was about right. She was thinking about putting a plan in place to think about quitting. Until then, there was nothing like a cup of coffer and a cigarette to put the world right.

LOL I was a long time smoker and this sounds so like me. I did finally quit smoking over a year ago. Still miss it like crazy at times. especially with a cup of coffee or while on the computer.


Read on if you want to know more.


People are dropping like flies at the Happy Times RV Park and Charlene is afraid she might be next if she doesn’t figure out why. The gig as manager of the park in a small town on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi seemed perfect for a writer trying to find time to write her second book, until a resident is found with his brains splattered on his tacky old couch.

Charlene is not alone, she has people to help her out or maybe get her killed. Gus is a good looking cop with a secret past. Maggie looks like everybody’s idea of a perfect grandma, but Charlene finds out she was once the richest madam in the Dixie Mafia. Dave, who may or may not be on the FBI’s most wanted list, is a ZZ Top look alike with the hots for Paula Deen.

Will secrets from the past be the death of her or will Charlene along with Boo, Loretta, and Jinx, her trio of neurotic animals make it out alive?


This book has two different covers. The first is the one on Amazon and the second is from Goodreads.

Which one do you like most?

  2. I like the second cover better. :)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I’m still on the fence. I want to see how boats and water connect with the story.

  3. sjhigbee says:

  4. mysm2000 says:

    Well the first cover makes it look like a comedy, which I gather it is, so I vote for it. Sounds like a fun read. Thanks for stopping by my post: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-1xk

    • fuonlyknew says:

      There is some snarky humor in it. I like the artsy look of the first cover but I also like the dark look of the second one.

  5. I definitely like the descriptions in the teaser,. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  6. Shoshi Reads says:

    This book sounds interesting! Great teaser choice too! http://shoshireads.weebly.com/home/teaser-tuesday4566869

  7. ljennison says:

    It sounds like a fun read. I like the way the characters sound in the synopsis. I’d keep reading.

  8. Kathy Martin says:

    Sounds good. I’ve never been a smoker but I know how old habits can linger. My teaser this week is from Some Kind of Hero by Suzanne Brockmann. Happy reading!

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Quitting smoking was one of the hardest things I ever did. I loved it but don’t miss all the nasty that goes with it.

  9. Greg Hill says:

    Hah this sounds awesome! Such different covers though- the first one with the blood seems funny and dark at the same time? I thought maybe a zombie book. the second cover is totally different, with the pier and hotel? I’m not sure which I like better!

    I love that it’s called Happy Times RV Park lol.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      Yeah. The park’s name is too funny. I won’t know which cover I prefer until I finish the book.

  10. mystery – seems something I’d like for sure. Thanks for sharing.
