5 Star Mystery “Blue Flamingo” by Joyce V. Harrison

Summary from Goodreads:

When his father dies, 24-year-old Dylan Ryker finds a matchbook his dad had hidden in a drawer. Could it be a clue to the identity of his mystery birth mother? The matchbook, from a bar called the Blue Flamingo, takes him from Chicago to a village in the Florida Panhandle where he goes to work for the owner, Rita Cornwall. He’s sure this woman knows something but she’s not telling.

In his search for answers to where he came from and where his future lies, Dylan finds himself in harm’s way, threatened by a local troublemaker and warned by a religious fanatic to stay away from his daughter, conflicts that will lead him to the truth but not the one he imagined.

About the Author

joyce harrison

A full time freelance copywriter, I come from a decades long career in ad agencies and prior to that in broadcasting. A long time songwriter as well, I am a lifetime voting member of the Recording Academy (Grammys).

My first book “Slag” takes place in the far North where I was born and raised and is set in the 1950s. The title of my second book “Long Plastic Hallway” comes from a quote by Hunter S. Thompson about the music business. The third book, “Blue Flamingo: A Novella” is about a search to learn the identity of a mystery birth mother.

I personally recommend this book. It has the AlliesOpinions official stamp of approval!
