Hello everyone! So excited to be writing this post, because today we are all going to get to know Jackie! This is a great opportunity for you all to get to know another crew member, but also for me to get to know Jackie.

So, lets begin!

Since we’ve all had to give an answer to this so far, it’s only fair that you tell us your absolute favourite book.

Well, I wouldn’t normally have an answer to this question because it is next to impossible to choose *one* favorite book. I have had so many favorites throughout the years. But! I can tell you my newest favorite book and I’m sure it’ll be one that stays at the top of my list for a very long time. It is a book that I literally just finished reading called Maybe Someday by Colleen Hoover.

Sum yourself up in three words.

Quiet. Shy. Loyal.

If you were stuck on a desert island, what three things would you want to be left with?

Well, I’m going to have my two sons with me because I can’t live without them! They are my absolute world. As for the third thing, probably something to help us survive, whether that be a weapon or a means to make food, or something like that.

What attracted you to reading mystery novels? Are there any mystery books that particularly stand out to you?

I’m not really sure what got me into reading mysteries, honestly. I would just choose books that sounded interesting to me and the blurb for mysteries just had a way of pulling me in and leaving me wondering about the story. The mysteries that stand out to me the most are the Women’s Murder Club series by James Patterson and the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.

What do you get up to when you’re not reading?

When I’m not reading, I like to work on my blog. I also spend a lot of time on social media, mostly Instagram (or bookstagram more specifically lol). I like to watch movies and catch up on my favorite TV shows. I like spending time with my kids and finding fun stuff for us to do together.

Name some of your favourite mystery TV shows or movies.

I really enjoyed watching episodes of Criminal Minds and Law and Order: SVU.

I hope you all know Jackie a little bit more, because I certainly do! Check back tomorrow to get to know Cass!

Hey! Cass here and today starts our next four days looking at the members of “THE MYSTERY CREW”. Today we are going to learn about crew member DEE! I am looking forward to interviewing her and learning more about her.

Hey Dee, first question is what made you interested in joining “The Mystery Crew” site?


I love reading mystery books to the point where they are pretty much my staple reading diet. The opportunity to be part of a group that celebrates the thrill and intrigue of mystery fiction that incorporates an air os suspense was too good of an opportunity to miss!


Your next question is the question we all get asked as people that enjoy reading, what is your favorite book?


I know it’s cliché and overused by now, but I really do not have an absolute favourite book. Every time I read something new, I’m gripped by that book. However, a book that has kept me absolutely hooked since I began reading Young Adult fiction was With Malice by Eileen Cook.


Since this is a mystery site, what is your favorite mystery book or mystery author?


Again, there are just so many to choose from! At the moment, I’m absolutely lovely Karen McManus, Hannah Jayne and Courtney Summers.


Besides reading, what are some of your other favorite things to do in your spare time?


If I’m not reading, I’m sleeping 90 percent of the time. I love to be asleep. I do however, spend an increasing amount at the pub with my friends drinking fancy new gins. Oh, and I absolutely love taking my partner’s dog Spartacus for a walk up the River Skell!


If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

The ability to stop time because I spend way too long reading books that I always neglect the housework or my friends! It would be so useful to be able to pause time for a little bit, finish a book and pick up where I left off.


Last formal question that I have for you, if you could visit anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?


Iceland. I’ve always wanted to go and sleep out under the stars with the Northern Lights dancing above me. Of course, the only cons of that is hypothermia and the fact that things cost a lot more in Iceland in the UK.


Is there anything else you think the readers of “The Mystery Crew” site should know about you?


There’s nothing I can really think of off the top of my head. Just know that I am basically addicted to mystery novels.


It has been fun to interview you, Dee! I am glad you could share with the readers, so they could learn a bit more about you. Tomorrow, we get to learn more about crew member BEN!
