Section: Mystery of the month:

This month, I'd like to whet your appetite with a brief description of one of my episodes of my audio mysteries that I have chosen for you.

This one is called "The Russian Romeo" and here is a brief description.

He was known as the Russian Romeo; everyone around him loved and adored him but does that mean that he killed his lover and well known socialite Natalie Pompay? Or did someone else want her dead? If he did, then why? If he did not, then who and why?

Who could have done this?

Was it Carlo Pompay? He was the husband of Natalie Pompay.

Was it Oleg Koslov? He was the lover of Natalie Pompay.

Was it Maria Ghintsberg? She was Natalie's secretary.

This mystery is filled with treachery, hatred, and deceit and the murderer is only unmasked at the very end.

You can purchase this audio mystery for the very affordable price of $.99 U.S. Each of my audio mysteries costs $.99 U.S and you can purchase an entire season of 13 mysteries for the very low price of $9.99 U.S.

Some very important tips on certain fruits:

  • Raspberries – Of all the berries, raspberries have the most fiber to keep you feeling full. One 'cup' gives you 8 grams and has only about 65 calories.
  • Plums – There are more than 200 varieties, but buy the dark purple or red ones and eat the skin, which has high concentrations of antioxidants to combat inflammation.
  • Sweet Cherries – One 'cup' provides about 300 mg of potassium, which helps regulate your blood pressure, plus a big dose of antioxidants.
  • Strawberries – They can boost your immune system: Just one 'cup' will give you your entire daily requirement of vitamin C. Strawberries might also help control type 2 diabetes and prevent heart attacks.
  • Peaches – Peaches and other stone fruits have compounds that can reduce obesity and inflammation. They may even help fight breast cancer.
  • Tart Cherries – Packed with antioxidants, these may decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke and ease arthritis symptoms. They're linked to better sleep and muscle recovery after exercise.
  • Blueberries – They get their deep color from anthocyanins, which protect your heart and can improve memory and reduce urinary-tract infections.
