INTRIGUING PLOT, FASCINATING CHARACTERS…
“Part mystery, part women’s fiction, part poetry, Mulhern’s debut, The Deep End, will draw you in with the first sentence and entrance you until the last. An engaging whodunit that kept me guessing until the end!” – Tracy Weber, Author of the Downward Dog Mysteries

Swimming into the lifeless body of her husband’s mistress tends to ruin a woman’s day, but becoming a murder suspect can ruin her whole life.
It’s 1974 and Ellison Russell’s life revolves around her daughter and her art. She’s long since stopped caring about her cheating husband, Henry, and the women with whom he entertains himself. That is, until she becomes a suspect in Madeline Harper’s death. The murder forces Ellison to confront her husband’s proclivities and his crimes—kinky sex, petty cruelties and blackmail.
As the body count approaches par on the seventh hole, Ellison knows she has to catch a killer. But with an interfering mother, an adoring father, a teenage daughter, and a cadre of well-meaning friends demanding her attention, can Ellison find the killer before he finds her?
Praise for THE DEEP END:
“What truly stands out is the development of Ellison as a very realistic and very likable character…Not to be overlooked is the humor and wit that entertains throughout the novel as readers enjoy following an intelligent heroine completely coming into her own as a compelling, funny, and very intelligent woman.” – Kings River Life Magazine
“A well-written traditional mystery...Plotting is tight and suspense-filled with plenty of twists and turns. Ellison was a likable character and I'm looking forward to reading more about her.” – Loralee Peterson, NetGalley Reviewer
“What a fun read! Murder in the days before cell phones, the internet, DNA and AFIS.” – Books for Avid Readers
“Intriguing plots, fascinating characters. From the first page to the last, Julie’s mysteries grab the reader and don’t let up. When all is resolved and I read the last page, I wanted to read more.” – Sally Berneathy, USA Today Bestselling Author
“Ms. Mulhern weaves a tidy tale of murder, blackmail, and life behind the scenes in the Country Club set of the 70s… an excellent mystery, highly recommended, and I eagerly await the next in the series.” – Any Good Book

Great action from another time
I started reading this and couldn't put it down. Plenty of action, interesting characters, a sympathetic heroine, and an excellent whodunit. Love the 70s touches. I absolutely can't wait to get hold of the second book and see what happens next--which I thinks pretty much sums up how good the first book is.
Light, easy read with humor throughout.
Great read! You can see the scene as you read! Intriguing characters that make you turn the page for the next "be careful what you ask for" bad day in the life of a great character!
