Sara Sue Hoklotubbe is a published author of fiction.

Sara was born as a tribal citizen of the Cherokee nation. She is also the creative author of the cozy mystery series of fictional novels loved by readers– the Sadie Walela series. It has won several awards and readers seem to like it as well!

Sara Sue spent her childhood growing up on Lake Eucha’s banks. The lake is located in the northeastern part of Oklahoma. Today the author has channeled her stories from experience and has even decided to use this real life location for the primary setting of her mystery books. Her hope is that by using Lake Eucha as a setting, it will help the reader to be even more transported into the Cherokee life of modern day.

The first book to come out in the Sadie Walela series is titled “Deception On All Accounts”. Readers were first able to get their hands on a copy of this debut story in 2003. The sequel to the first would come out a few years later and is titled The American Cafe. This won the WILLA Literary Award in 2012 for being the best original soft-cover fiction book, according to Women Writing the West.

It also was the recipient of the New Mexico-Arizona Book Award in 2012 in the category of best mystery novel. That same year, The American Cafe was deemed the year’s top mystery from the Wordcraft Circle, a group of storytellers and native writers. It became a finalist but ultimately did not win in 2012 for the Oklahoma Book Awards as well as the book of the year from ForeWord in 2011.

The second book in the Sadie Walela series is titled The American Cafe. She’s been wanting to own and operate her own restaurant ever since she was a little girl. Now that she has grown up some and can actually make it happen, she’s thinking that now is the perfect time to just go for it.

Sadie decided that she’s going to pursue her dream. She’s busy planning the menu and more but has no real concept that murder once more may find her out of seemingly nowhere. Sadie gets started on her restaurant in the Cherokee Nation’s heart, but quickly finds out that being an entrepreneur can be really difficult and not at all as simple as she thought it would be.

The first day that she starts, she finds out that the local mad woman in town has threatened her. Then the person who owned the cafe before she bought it ends up being discovered dead. This means that the cafe as well as Sadie immediately not only make the news but quickly becomes the center of focus of unwanted attention.

It seems that there’s a virtual cloud of doubt hanging over the cafe now, and people seem to have a lot of questions. Sadie is doing all that she can to try and track down the answers that it appears that she needs. Using the intuition as well as perseverance of her ancestry, this new entrepreneur is doing what she can to try and investigate this murder.

Sadie just wants answers, and she may find unexpected help when a friend shows up and offers to help her. Can they get to the bottom of what’s going on and potentially catch a killer? Or will more people die? Will Sadie be forced to close her business?

There’s a lot going on in this story, and the sister of the victim continues to grieve. Meanwhile, the owner’s surviving niece is struggling with an alcohol addiction. With many layers to this story of deception and denial, unique characters, and complicated relationships, pick up a copy of this book and see what Sadie unravels and be sure to look into the other stories in this series!
