Sweet Success for Bill Bush


Bill Bush is excited to announce the, October 24, 2020, release of his latest book, WHEN THE TIME IS RIGHT. This cozy mystery won first place in the 2020 Zebulon contest in the Mystery/Suspense/Thriller category, and is the first in the Halstead Mystery series.


Eden didn’t peg bribery, kidnapping, and murder for summer activities.

For eighteen-year-old Eden, her court-mandated community service is set to be every bit as punishing as prison. Sent off to work at a pizza joint while living with her grandmother in a little out-of-the-way town, at least she can appreciate the peace and quiet.

But the town is hiding its own secrets, and pretty soon peace and quiet will be very hard to come by. She might not realize it, but between the spiteful neighbor, the enigmatic mayor, and the calculating owner of the abandoned hospital, Eden’s 90 days in Halstead are set to be the most exciting of her life.

Follow Eden’s unexpected adventure in this strange and entertaining tale of mystery.
