Private Investigator Peri Minneopa is hired to investigate a wealthy, possibly cheating wife, but the wife’s girlfriends have other ideas. After all, a friend will help you move – a good friend will help you move a body.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

My wife finished this book first but was thoughtful enough not to tell me anything about the story…. and what a story it was. A casual investigation of a suspected adultress turns into an well crafted story of friendship, deceipt, and murder. Peri is in over her head again and depends on her friends and her wits to find her way clear of some very unsavory characters. Here’s hoping you’re working on your next book, I can’t wait to get a copy!


Delving into “Hit or Missus,” Gayle Carline’s latest Peri Minneopa mystery, is like reconnecting with an old friend. Peri is as feisty and committed to her still fledgling investigation business as ever, and this time she’s on the trail of a trophy wife suspected of cheating on her wealthy husband. The novel is full of Carline’s trademark wit and humor, and a colorful cast of characters. And you don’t have to be familiar with Placentia, California, to be charmed by the setting, but those readers who are – as I am – will be doubly delighted by Carline’s ability to bring this quiet, small town to life on the page.


I loved this book. It was warm and quirky and funny, with just enough mystery thrown in. I would recommend this book to all baby boomers, Dean Martin fans, and anyone else who wants a fun, light-hearted mystery.


Peri’s smart, she’s lovable, but she’s also daring when she sets her mind to it. Drives the detectives crazy, but they struggle to keep up with her as she unravels yet another mystery in this charming town in southern California. You want her friends for your friends – you want to phone her up and take a jog with her…fun to read and can’t wait for the next one!

About The Author

Gayle Carline is a typical Californian, meaning that she was born somewhere else. She moved to Orange County from Illinois in 1978, and landed in Placentia a few years later.

Her husband, Dale, bought her a laptop for Christmas in 1999 because she wanted to write. A year after that, he gave her horseback riding lessons. When she bought her first horse, she finally started writing.

Gayle soon became a regular contributor to California Riding Magazine, and in March, 2005, she began writing a humor column for her local newspaper, the Placentia News-Times. Every week, she entertains readers with stories of her life with Dale and their son, Marcus.

In her spare time, Gayle likes to sit down with friends and laugh over a glass of wine. And maybe plan a little murder and mayhem for the next novel.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Gayle Carline and ENT appreciate it.

I read this book and loved it – very well-written, clever and funny. A great read (and I’m not related to the author).
