Readers on Against My Better Judgment

I loved Sara’s snark and wit. She was quite fun to read about. She gets herself into a bit of a mess and it was an entertaining one, to say the least. She has such a great voice to lead the story.

I loved the backdrop and setting, I think the author does a great job of highlighting those elements.

Danger and mystery ensue throughout and I think it was a wonderful case and kept me guessing.

Oh, what fun this was. I loved Sara’s snark and wit. She was quite fun to read about. She has such a great voice to lead the story.

When I picked up this book, I was looking for something that was laugh-out-loud fun, and B.T. Polcari delivered. The characters are hilarious.

I had an amazing time getting to know Sara and the others we meet along the way.

The setting so lively and interesting. The plot twists were an adventure that I never wanted to end.

In my head these characters are still living on and causing mischief.

From the very first page, this book had me hooked and causing mischief.

Who is B.T. Polcari?

Ever wonder what retired business executives do after they have put in years of effort for society and decide it is time to hang up their hat? Perhaps strolling along the country club’s fairway, or lounging on a 50-foot yacht?

Alas, B. T. Polcari is unlike your typical retired executive. Empty nester and Scarlett Knights alum, Polcari is still learning the meaning of “retired” while feverishly typing away on the next new book idea, smashing the fuzz off the little green tennis ball, or blasting bowling pins for a perfect game. Yes there is a boat, but not one that comes with its own crew; this retiree prefers to bustle along a serene lake in a quaint single seat Sunfish sailboat.

Perhaps the only time BTP can be found in a quiet moment is while enjoying the morning company of two family dachshunds over a newspaper and cup of coffee. B. T. Polcari currently resides in Chattanooga, TN and is thrilled to be fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming a published author.

His award-winning first book, Against My Better Judgment, received an Honorable Mention in the Mystery/Crime category of the 2021 Eric Hoffer Awards & was a Grand Prize finalist. It was also a finalist in the Oklahoma Heart Awards. He is now feverishly editing the second book in the Mauzzy and Me series!
