Early and Personal Life

Growing up in American with a passion for reading and writing, Terry Ambrose would show a keen interest in literature from an early age. This would be something that he’d carry throughout much of his life, on into his adult career, as he sought inspiration from the world around him. Taking his many experiences, he’d put them back into his writing, allowing them to shape much of his output from a realistic perspective.

Developing his style and his voice, he would work for some time as a skip-tracer, seeing a wide-range of people in the process. Much of this would help inform his writing, as many of the characters would help populate his different mysteries. Currently living in Southern California, he still continues writing to this very day, all the while visiting Hawaii and the Garden Island of Kauai on a regular basis.

Writing Career

It would be the novel ‘Photo Finish’ that would start the literary career of Terry Ambrose back in 2012, and this would also be the first in the ‘Trouble in Paradise’ mystery series. That same year she would also go on to bring out the novel ‘License to Lie’ just a few months later, and this would begin a series of the same name. Focusing on mystery novels, many of them falling into the cozy mystery genre, Terry Ambrose has been a prolific author over the years. Gaining a lot of recognition worldwide for his work, he’s received numerous good reviews from the critics too, as his writing continues to generate a lot of publicity.

Big Island Blues

First brought out through the ‘Satori’ publishing label, this would originally come out in 2014 on the 21st of October. It would mark the third book in the ‘Trouble in Paradise’ mystery series of novels following the character of Wilson McKenna. Each with a self-contained mystery story, they can be read in any order, although there are some characters and arcs for returning fans to enjoy too.

There’s so many engaging elements here for the reader to invest themselves in, with an engaging cast of characters. All this works to make the story fun and entertaining, as it keeps the reader continually guessing for every step of the way. Mystery fans will really enjoy it, and it’s definitely a series to follow, with it being a good casual read for anyone to enjoy.

Heading to the Big Island of Hawaii, Wilson McKenna, the former skip tracer, plans to see his friend’s niece, Andi Kapono, participate in Big Island Jazz Festival. Once he does get off the plane though, he finds that Andi is missing and that he’s now been tasked with finding her by his best friend. Not only that, but a teenage hacker now threatens to disrupt the investigation, as secrets emerge, along with a twenty-year-old plan for revenge. Can McKenna find Andi before it’s too late? What’s the truth behind the web of lies and deceit? Who will get the Big Island blues?

Secrets of The Treasure King

Once again brought out through the ‘Satori’ imprint, this was initially released in 2020 and would be the third ‘A Seaside Cove Bed and Breakfast Mystery’ series novel. Providing another self-contained mystery set in the same location as before, it brings back many of the same characters from the previous books. Developing the world and the characters further, it can be read on its own, although there is plenty for long-term fans to enjoy too.

Grabbing the reader from the outset, this novel hooks them for every step of the way, keeping them reading. It really is a fun and entertaining book that has a lot to offer, as there’s lots of surprise twists and turns leaping out from every page. This is something that works not just in this book, but the rest of the series too, as it manages to maintain its momentum throughout.

Docking at the marina in Seaside Cove, The Treasure King is helmed by a captain who lays claim to knowing the whereabouts of the San Manuel; a priceless sunken galleon from four-hundred years ago. Then the captain is dead killed by a speargun, and Rick Atwood is called in to help as owner of the local B&B, although he’s worried about his eleven year-old daughter Alex. Attempting to solve the case herself, she gains clues illegally, and now Rick must work on the investigation, all whilst keeping her out of trouble. Will he be able to find the real killer? What are the clues Alex found? Can they discover the secrets of the Treasure King?
