Welcome to my guest, the very colorful lead character we’d all love to have a glass of wine with in mystery novel Gumshoe Girl by Andi Ramos. Read on to learn more!
Hi Addison, my name is Sheagan O’Hare, I am the female main character in Andi Ramos’ debut novel, Gumshoe Girl. It’s so nice to be here today to chat with you.
Addison: What’s your profession?
Sheagan: I have just recently taken over Diamond Detective Agency, my family business. I never expected to be in this situation, so I know nothing about being a detective. But, I am trying not to let that deter me especially after I landed my first big client, a missing persons case. Problem is I’ve got this incredibly annoying and unfortunately attractive FBI agent that keeps trying to interfere with my case.
Addison: What are your thoughts on love?
Sheagan: Love huh. Not really sure since the guy I’ve been living with I just caught cheating on me. I’ve sworn off guys while I’m trying to get the agency up and running again. However, I just ran into a guy from my past that I think is trying to become a little more than friends. And, well I mentioned the hot agent…so I’m not sure my heart is listening to my head.
Addison: What’s in your fridge right now?
Sheagan: My fridge, that’s hysterical since I don’t even have a fridge. I’m living on my best friend’s couch, watching her puppy until she gets back from Napa, thank goodness too, because if not for her I would be utterly hopeless. But let’s say I wasn’t such a mess and I actually had a fridge to look into…it would be filled with fresh, nutritious food and healthy snacks…yeah right, who are we kiddin’, it would totally be a half roll of cookie dough and wine.
Addison: What terrifies you most?
Sheagan: My biggest fear, failure. What if I can’t find this missing woman? What if I suck at being a private detective and the only tie to my family goes down the tubes? What if I can’t find an apartment before my best friend, Emmie, comes back from vacation? Never mind this love triangle I seemed to have found myself in. Ugh, sorry it’s just a lot to think about and all hinging on whether or not I can succeed. Quick let’s get to the next question, lol.
Addison: What quirky habits annoy you in others?
Sheagan: So, I never realized this is something that would bug me, but Mac has this habit of clenching his jaw when he’s angry. And he seems to have this reaction every time I am with him. It’s really starting to bug me because it’s a constant indicator that I screwed something else up. I get it. I make mistakes. I don’t need a physical reminder of them.
About Gumshoe Girl

How does she feel when an old high school friend hopes to ignite a new romance? Will she be able to discover if detective work and love can mingle before someone gets hurt?
