Bad Time To Be In It (A Blu Carraway Mystery) by David Burnsworth is on virtual book tour with Great Escapes Book Tours and stops at Readeropolis with a character interview. Enjoy!


What is the best thing that ever happened to you?

Having my daughter, Hope. She makes life worth living. If not for her, I might not be here today.
The worst?
The messy divorce with Hope’s mother. It wasn’t meant to be no matter how hard we tried to make it work. We were two different people and Hope had to weather the storm. I regret that even now.

What is in your refrigerator right now?
A carafe of coffee and another of water. Some yogurt. Not much else. I tend to eat out. My daughter gets on me a lot about not having food in the house. If she starts to work for me, I have a feeling the condition of my fridge will change quite a bit.
On your bedroom floor?
Bare hardwood. I don’t like clutter, although last year I let things slip when I ran out of money and had a hard time focusing.
On your nightstand?
My nine-millimeter Ruger. It’s new.
In your garbage can?
Coffee grounds and junk mail.

Complete the following sentence: I am the kind of person who…
…doesn’t like clutter. Just kidding. Not really. I’m the kind of person who doesn’t mind slowing down to speed up. I don’t like wasting time on the wrong things so I’ll take time to make sure I’m doing the right things. Whether it’s for the job or for Hope. Or my girlfriend Billie although that isn’t going well at the moment no matter what I do.

What is your most treasured possession?
My island home. Thanks to the foresight of my great grandfather, the Carraway family has had nine acres surrounded by the majestic lowcountry marsh and tide creeks. It is a sight to behold. And with it came a small herd of Carolina Marsh Tackeys. They’re an endangered breed of horses and we’ve grown to rely on each other over the years.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
About five years ago, my business partner—Mick Crome—and I went down to Mexico to find the daughter of a client who’d been kidnapped. Against all odds, we got her back. Not only did the client not have to pay the five-million-dollar ransom, but we made sure it was clear that his family was not to be messed with.

The past is never past. Sometimes it repeats itself. And sometimes it comes back to pay a visit. Blu Carraway, flush with cash and back in business, never had it so good. Or so he thought. The reality is his love life is in shambles, his business partner is spending too much time with women half his age and not enough time on the job, and someone close goes missing. Blu’s business partner goes off the rails, his friends show their true colors, and he realizes that getting closure sometimes means walking away from everything. With a case from the past gone wrong twice, a loved one in trouble, and an unanswered marriage proposal, it’s a bad time to be in it for Blu Carraway Investigations.
