Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up everyone! Thank you for dropping in. Oak Tree Press has lots of news in our corral today. Be sure to check out our website,, for a complete list of all the great books we have available. But now, for your reading pleasure, our authors have news, book signings, events, reviews, blogs and more to share with you as we head into the Round-Up…

My featured book this week is "Teed Off! A Riley Quinn Mystery" a new release by NICOLA FURLONG. This is a great read and you can order your copy by clicking on the books cover on the right side bar of this blog. It is also available on

Crackling with wit and suspense, "Teed Off!" delivers three holes in one: a complex and engrossing murder mystery, a fascinating glimpse into professional golf and a complicated and poignant family dynamic.
When coroner Riley Quinn tees off an investigation into the suspicious death of her boss and brother-in-law, she finds herself sand-wedged by a villainous environmental group, a mysterious Japanese consortium and her estranged sister. In order to catch a cunning and ruthless murderer, Riley must face a nasty past she thought dead and buried. The chocoholic club pro quickly discovers that not all bad lies are on the golf course; unfortunately, sometimes they’re much closer to home.

Check out these great Pro Reviews:

Oak Tree definitely has diverse authors and books available--something to appeal to everyone. (And the captcha code is the easiest to read that I've ever seen, which makes it so much easier to leave a comment!!!)
