    Praise for Peach Clobbered:
    "Gerard has honed her craft, and it shows. Protagonist Nina Fleet is confident, sassy, and someone you'd want as a best friend, especially if Mattie her dog is with her...A 5-star read. Excellent characters, great fun, brisk plot, and a new cozy, cozy-setting. Dig in and enjoy. Just don't forget to breathe."
    -Carolyn Haines, USA Today bestselling author of the Sarah Booth Delaney mysteries

    "Filled with Southern charm and enough ditzy characters to keep readers guessing and laughing."
    -Kirkus Reviews

    "Bright and breezy...Gerard provides it all: well-drawn characters, pithy dialogue, and enough twists and turns and shifts of motive to keep cozy fans happily playing the whodunit game."
    -Publishers Weekly

    "Humor, an engaging cast, interesting details about running a B&B, and the nicely evoked small-town Georgia setting distinguish this cozy."

    "Entertaining and downright fun...Definitely another series that is sure to grab fans!"
    -Suspense Magazine

    "Nina is a spirited lead, and the town is full of supporting characters that add to the mosaic of Cymbeline...A perfect armchair vacation of a book."

    "An engaging read with vibrant characters. Anna Gerard's Peach Clobbered is chock full of fun, including eccentric Southerners defending hearth and home, a stalker, an unusual relic, an overheated penguin, and a gaggle of nuns. While trying to hang onto her new B&B, Nina Fleet (that's Nine-ah to those who haven't met her yet) investigates the death of an unpopular real estate developer. Gutsy and determined, Nina and her beloved Aussie pooch Maddy charm both friend and foe. I'd love to stay at Nina's B&B and enjoy her hospitality. I didn't want the book to end."
    -Maggie Toussaint, award-winning author

    "A superbly crafted and wonderfully entertaining mystery that is a truly compulsive page-turner of a read from cover to cover."
    -Midwest Book Reviews

    "Peach Clobbered is very captivating and Gerard knows how to keep the reader reading...[and] before you know it you have finished."
    -Cozy Mystery Book Reviews

    "Gerard paints a stunning portrait of small-town Georgia, replete with a colorful cast of characters. She lays the groundwork for what is sure to be a blockbuster series."
    -Karla Brandenburg, award-winning author

    "Anna Gerard writes with a skillful touch...A whip-smart protagonist...A cozy blanket of murderous fun. A cracking-good, page-turning start to a brilliant new series!"
    -Cheryl Hollon, author of Webb's Glass Shop mysteries

    "Chock-full of twists and turns, interesting characters and just the right amount of humor...A great summer read or a book club selection."
