Kate Jasper, Marin County, California's own, organically grown, amateur sleuth returns in this eleventh mystery in the series. ("Kate Jasper is a keeper!"--MERITORIOUS MYSTERIES.) In MURDER, MY DEER, Kate and her sweetie's budding romance has finally flowered into a full-fledged marriage. But no one ever promised them a rose garden. Deer have gate-crashed their yard to munch every bud, blossom, and petal. Instead of happily honeymooning, Kate and her sweetie attend the Deer-Abused support group for those whose dearly-beloved plants have been deerly-beheaded. Antlers clash during group discussion since everyone has their own idea for deer prevention...from feeding them to killing them. Doctor Searle Sandstrom, ex-military, would like to use a gun, napalm, and land mines. But someone bashes in his head first, and no one spots any hoofprints near his dead body. Killing season is open, and Kate is game to flush out the hunter before she becomes the hunted game.

About the author (2009)

Jaqueline "Jaki" Girdner is a lifelong reader from a family of readers and writers. While working her way through world literature, children's literature, science fiction and other genres, she earned a degree in psychology, practiced tai chi and eventually became a lawyer. While in law school, she read her way through Agatha Christie, Dorothy Sayers, Ngaio Marsh, and John Dickson Carr. For a short time, she worked for a criminal law firm, then set up shop on her own as a "family law" attorney and eventually started a greeting card company called "Jest Cards," which didn't make her much money but which finally led her to create Kate Jasper, who owned a gag gift company called "Jest Gifts" and practiced tai chi. Kate Jasper stumbled over dead bodies. And Jaki sold her first mystery novel. And then eleven more. She has also written, as Claire Daniels, about Cally Lazar, a recovering attorney who does "cane?fu" and has an energetic healing practice. E-Reads has reissued her twelve Kate Jasper mysteries. And Jaki is now writing a mainstream romantic comedy. You can find out lots more about Jaki Girdner on her website
