~Two murders have occured at the Barrel Springs Day Spa. Police hurry to find the method and reason before anyone else is murdered.~

Alexa moved to her side. "Cyndi? Is there anything I can do to help?"
Sighing deeply, the tall, elegantly muscled, tanned Spa Manager offered a lopsided smile.

"No, Ms. Bond. I'm afraid you're going to miss your meeting. When my appointment secretary went to notify Ms. Spencer, it was time for her Swedish Sauna, well, she, she found her...dead." Barrel Springs Day Spa

Alexa stretched languidly, adjusting the warmed Turkish towel over her small derriere. In all her twenty-five years of public service, she had afforded herself but one extravagant luxury--an herbal, full body massage by the master himself, Raul Hernandez. The man had hands of gold.

He swept into the room, turned and securely closed the door.

"Hello, Ms. Bond. Thank goodness it’s Wednesday. This effeminate act is so tiring…"

He moved about the room setting up his massage table, talking non-stop sports as he progressed. When he’d warmed the chakra stones to the correct temperature, he placed them on Alexa’s back.

"…and he was smart enough to hold out for fifty million. I wish I’d had his insight."

Alexa uh-hummed at all the right intervals and allowed herself the opulence of drifting into a warm sleep, lulled by the smooth baritone of Raul’s voice. She knew and trusted Raul to massage all the kinks out of her body while she slept undisturbed.

Just as she stood to accept the Pulitzer Prize for her insightful article, written during her spare time for the Los Angeles Times on the current graft in City governments, she heard her name called from far away. The voice became insistent and nearer. She realized Raul was trying to wake her from her slumber.

"Oh, please, Raul, just five more minutes. I was so near this time."

C. L. Kraemer has been a gypsy all her life. From her military child beginnings to her might-not-get-this-chance-again attitude after she left home, she’s seen most of the continental United States as well as Hawaii and Alaska. She hopes to travel the world but is content to stay close to her family in the desert in Southern California—for the moment.

Three novels written under the nom de plume, Celia Cooper, Old Enough to Know Better, Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Mazatlan, and If Only were gifts from the writing gods. A fourth novel, Cats in the Cradle of Civilization, written as C. L. Kraemer is her first venture to the mystery genre.

Healthy Homicide picks up the torch again in the mystery world.

Manic Reader Reviews says: Healthy Homicide by C.L. Kraemer is an intriguing plot driven mystery. The plot is well written and pretty much carries the whole story ...
