About The Book:
Book Two in the Carrie Carlin “Other Deadly Things” Mystery Series
In “Sharks, Jellyfish and Other Deadly Things” it’s Carrie’s best friend, Meg, who is in trouble when her brother-in-law, Pete is killed (murdered?) in a boating accident and Meg’s husband, Kevin, goes missing. Planning to do only some hand-holding, a little biofeedback therapy and maybe soak up a little sun in the bargain, Carrie flies to Key West and finds herself neck deep in murder, machetes, and poisonous aquatic life as she joins Meg in an all-out search for her husband. Word of their inquiries spreads among Pete and Kevin’s competitors, some of whose tentacles reach deep into the shark infested waters of the boat racing industry. Suddenly there are ominous phone calls, a menacing homeless man, a wild chase through Key West’s famous old cemetery, a ransacked hotel room–and then the attacks become really personal…
“An enjoyable fast read. The mystery is tricky and I didn’t see ‘whodunit’ coming till the last minute. I think those of you who like Jill Churchill, Diane Mott Davidson and Katherine Hall Page will like this one.”
Once more Nancy has produced a compelling blend of vividly imagined characters, arcane facts, and suspenseful plot to create a most enjoyable mystery….It rivals the best in the genre.”
John Lewell – Femaledetective.com
True to her character’s occupation, Tesler delivers a stress-free mystery. The story is light, the plotting is first class and the characters engaging.”
Oline Codgill – The Sun-Sentinal
“Sharks, Jellyfish and Other Deadly Things has lots of questions, lots of humor, a bunch of attractive men, more than one slimy character, a humungous fish tank….But most of all there’s Carrie Carlin. Nancy Tesler has made her warm, funny, gutsy, vulnerable and loyal. If we’re lucky we all have a friend like her. In the meantime we can take her home in a book.

“A winner…Carrie Carlin is a thoroughly modern heroine—feisty, independent, and funny.”
Valerie Wolzein – Author of the Susan Henshaw and Josie Pigeon mysteries
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Nancy received a BFA from the renowned theater department at Carnegie Mellon University. A career that included off-Broadway, summer stock, TV, films, and a road company tour of some military bases in France, sadly failed to put her name in lights, but did turn out to be excellent training for the writing career that was to come.
After taking a hiatus to raise three children, she began writing for the stage, television and the financial community. Still another career as a biofeedback practitioner helped pay the bills when suddenly single again, and inspired by an overwhelming urge to knock someone off, she created the “Other Deadly Things” mystery series, originally published by Dell, which deals with the murderously wacky world of divorce where biofeedback stress-reduction is the order of the day.
Don’t miss this stand-out-from-the-crowd cliffhanger with its slightly frazzled, commitment-phobic, in-your-face heroine, who’ll tickle your funnybone as she steals your heart,” advises NY Times bestseller JANET EVANOVICH, and PUBLISHERS WEEKLY called amateur sleuth, Carrie Carlin, “a clever, slightly neurotic heroine whose personal life is in disarray, the kind of heroine Susan Isaacs might put in a mystery.” And from THE CHARLOTTE AUSTIN REVIEW, “This is amateur sleuthing at its charming, endearing, laughable and surprising best.”
