Title Beaucoup Fracas: The Big Uneasy Book 6

Author Pauline Baird Jones

Genre Cozy Mystery/Romantic Suspense

Book Blurb

She doesn’t want to be there. He doesn’t either.

Private investigator, Gideon Baker, is on the trail of a missing husband. A tip about the man’s car sends him to the Savoie Salvage yard in steamy southern Louisiana, but the owner is dead and his daughter, Jessica, is trying to sort out the mess her father left behind.

Jessica would rather be anywhere than dealing with the debris left behind by the father she never met. His salvage—aka junkyard is giving her daddy issues and heat rash. Oh, and there is that a dead body.

Gideon and Jessica strike sparks—the good kind—as they find themselves following a trail of murder, betrayal, and classic cars.

Can they survive the heat and the gunshots long enough to fall in love?

Cozy up with Beaucoup Fracas, the sixth installment in the popular Big Uneasy series!


“Right.” The male voice still sounded doubtful. “Well, Jenn—Jessica—”

He said Jessica like it was a foreign name, not the most common name given to girl children in 1985. He wasn’t the only one to get it wrong. Over and over again.

She’d gone through junior high, then high school being called Jennifer by her principle and most of her teachers. Her classmates had made jokes about how many Jennifers were graduating. And yes, her diploma had had to be corrected.

Her invite to the class reunion had been addressed to Jennifer, too. Everyone asked about her. She’d been way more popular than Jessica.

But she wasn’t bitter. Nope. Not bitter at all.

And if life wasn’t fun enough, Jennifer and Jessica both got notices that the father they never met had died and left her/them his junkyard.

She was confused. The lawyer was confused. Clearly, her father had been confused. Or clueless.

Her mom didn’t want to talk about it.

Author Biography

Hello everyone, I’m Pauline Baird Jones, a USA TODAY Bestselling Author affectionately known as Perilous Pauline. I adopted the name after I found out on Twitter that Goodreads says that I died in 1999.

Since I was already dead, I went ahead and embraced my quirky sense of humor and channeled it into my stories, my Facebook Pages, and my YouTube Channel where I love to write and perform as the Dead Author Live.

As you may have guessed from both my Perilous Pauline and Dead Author Live, I never cared for reality all that much.

When I’m not sharing the beautiful photographs that my husband has taken, chasing after my grandchildren, or expanding my Lego city, I’m off wandering among the genres, rampaging like Godzilla (we were born the same year!) and mixing peril and humor into my romances.

For motivation, I devour chocolate, bacon and collect flamingoes and mid-century modern anything. Readers can follow me on my website at and Facebook at
