USA Regional Excellence Book Award 2014, Short-listed
  • Short Description

Finalist for a 2014 USA Regional Excellence Book Award for Fiction.

When Sherri Travis runs out of gas on a swampy road in the middle of the night, she is thrown into the middle of a murderous plot and must summon all of her survival instincts, and then some, to solve the mystery.

Sherri Travis is an ordinary woman who has a knack for getting caught up in the most extraordinary circumstances. It’s almost midnight and Sherri is about to cross the Everglades when she realizes she’s low on gas. She turns off the main road and into the swamp to find a service station on Last Chance Road. But her pickup is carjacked, and she is left alone at night in the Glades. Hiding from dangerous men, terrified for her life, Sherri stumbles upon the body of a man. From alligators and snakes to the men called swamp rats, evil comes in many forms and offers no second chances for Sherri.

The sixth book in the popular Sherri Travis mystery series, Martini Regrets opens in the Florida Everglades, goes to an orchid ball in Sarasota, and culminates on a remote barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico.

"With an unexpected shocker and a reluctant amateur sleuth, Martini Regrets is a fantastic crime drama." —Harriet Klausner, #1 Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

"If you like your crime to be entertaining as well as tense then Phyllis Smallman’s Sherri Travis series is for you. The central character is feisty, brave to the point of crazy and never one to keep her own counsel as well as being immensely likeable." —Susan Mangan, CrimeFictionLover blog

"It’s impossible not to like Sherri, even while lamenting her devil-may-care attitude toward the many threats in her life, and marveling at her often-incredulous life decisions. Beyond the pull of character, though, is Smallman’s writing, which has gotten better and better. She is one of a handful of writers whose skill defies you to put down their books unfinished." —Jim Napier, Deadly Diversions

"This is by and far the best [book by Phyllis Smallman] I've read to date. All her novels show professional control over the devices such as plotting, description and dialogue, but [Martini Regrets] simply took a good story line and rode it to a great ending. This should be a breakthrough work for her ... Excellent dialogue, great use of description and pacing." —Don Graves, Canadian Mystery reviews

Martini Regrets chosen as a Fiction finalst in the USA Regional Excellence Book Awards for the Southeast region.
