Can she solve the mystery before it all spins out of control and off a cliff?

Danika
Dreary Mystery Book 1

 

by
Sherry Soule

 

Genre:
Cozy Paranormal Mystery

 

 

This
book will appeal to readers of Nancy Warren, Angie Fox, Molly Fitz,
and Kate Allenton!
 
A whimsical matchmaker. A bizarre murder. And a psychic amateur sleuth…

 

Danika
Dreary’s life is a hot mess. After her latest soul-crushing crisis,
Danika moves in with her eccentric grandma, Elsie.

 

But
there’s a catch: Danika must work at Karma Moon within the quaint
town of Mystique, California. Except this is no ordinary new-age
bookshop, it’s also where Elsie—a legendary matchmaker—helps
the lonely residents find love.

 

When
Ryker Van Allan demands his money back on a true love package, Elsie
and Danika are shocked. Yet Ryker insists the woman never showed up
for the date. And he’s telling the truth—Danika has a built-in
lie detector that warns her whenever someone’s being dishonest.

 

That
night, the woman’s body is found near the shop, and Elsie is
accused of the murder. Danika can’t let her grandma serve time for
a crime she didn’t commit. But the victim has more enemies than the
town has secrets, and Danika can’t throw a tarot card without
hitting a potential suspect.

 

With
the clock ticking, Danika must prove Elsie’s innocence, suffer
through the horrors of retail, and maybe even find a place where she
truly belongs.

Falling
Into Magic

 

Destiny
Falls Mystery & Magic Series Book 1

 

by
Elizabeth Pantley

 

Genre:
Magical Cozy Mystery

 

 

When
Hayden was a child, she lost her cat. Adults told her the cat ran
away, but she knew the truth. The mirror had taken her.
 

 

She
knew because the mirror had given her a glimpse of an alternate world
and had nearly pulled her in, so she was certain the cat had suffered
that fate.
 

 

Twenty
years later Hayden discovers the secret of the mirror when she is
thrust into it. She learns of a world she never knew existed, and a
family she never knew she had.
 

 

But
danger brought her here, and it followed her. Now, Hayden is on a
mission to remove the threat, so that she can begin her magical,
meaningful new life in this enchanted world.
 
 
 

 

“A
magical, delightful tale that held my attention with a quirky cast of
characters, engaging dialogue, a pleasantly appealing universe, and
an intriguing plotline that I could not put down. I can’t wait to
see where we go with Hayden’s next adventure.” — Dru Ann,
MWA Raven Award winner, www.drusbookmusing.com
 

 

What
a captivating read! . . . I couldn’t put it down. A great story, full
of interesting people and places to get to know, with surprises
around every corner.” — Linda C. Goodreads reviewer
 

 

The
world-building and magic system is fascinating. Destiny Falls is a
wondrous place that seems to cater to citizens’ wants and needs. I
love that it is almost a character in its own right, and I was
intrigued by the constantly changing world. Vivid imagery paints a
clear picture of Destiny falls and its inhabitants. Falling into
Magic is a dynamic introduction to the Destiny Falls Mystery &
Magic series.” — Julie Petitbon www.onebookmore.com/
 

 

Finally!
An author who manages to pin the Disney/Hallmark magic down on
paper.” 
– Mareli & Elza, https://elzareads.blogspot.com/

is no run-of-the-mill paranormal book! Unique ideas. You will be glad

frenzied eyes. To make it worse, she can’t find a job, rather, she
can’t keep a job, and she’s about to be evicted. Just when she gets a
glimmer of hope she’s blackmailed into trying to solve a
murder.

Cynthia, and a cast of crazed suspects. One of whom is determined she

Cozy Mystery

 

 

Kate
Atherton’s idyllic retirement is going well…if you don’t count
the two murders, the mysterious drone, and her photographer friend
who manages to poke a hornet’s nest of criminal activity, that
is.
 

 

Nestled
in the scenic Texas Hill Country, the cozy town of Wheaton Creek
seemed to Kate Atherton an idyllic place to escape the world’s
harsh realities. And then there was the first murder.

 

Kate
once enjoyed a long, successful career with a specialized, highly
secret federal intelligence agency. Crises in both her personal and
professional life drove her to early retirement and, ultimately, to
Wheaton Creek, the perfect place for her and her former-military
husband to escape what had come to feel like a world made up of wars,
hatred, fear, and untimely death. And, at first, the escape was all
Kate had hoped for. Then murder came to Wheaton Creek—a crime that
a corrupt county sheriff seems determined to pin on Kate’s
photographer friend, Lucy Celek.

 

Lucy’s
work has been chosen to appear at a prestigious photography festival,
a festival that could take her from amateur to professional standing.
All goes well until the gallery displaying her work is broken into,
and one of Lucy’s photographs is vandalized. A week later, the man
Lucy suspected of destroying her photograph—a fellow photographer
who was angry that his own work was not chosen by the festival
committee—is murdered. Faced with a sheriff who shows little
interest in expanding his list of suspects beyond Lucy, Kate feels
she must dust off her puzzle-solving skills to find the real killer.
Murder is just the beginning, though, as Kate’s amateur sleuthing
begins to reveal a tangled web of crimes that go beyond anything she
could have imagined.

Sugar
Mountain Book 4

 

by
Kirsten Fullmer

 

Genre:
Cozy Mystery, Sweet Romance

 

 

It’s
another charming and madcap mystery! The enchanting tourist town of
Sugar Mountain, NC is rewriting its tax codes, and no one knows why.
Mayor Winslow is up to no good, and he doesn’t seem to care what
happens to the local business owners; at least that’s how it feels
to Monique Brewer, the local tavern owner. She’s proud of making
her own way in the world, and messing with her business is a sure way
to get her riled.
 

 

Sounds
like another job for The Sugar Mountain Ladies Historical Society!
When Monique brings her concerns to the table, chaos erupts. The
women don’t trust anyone, especially not the Mayor or his peculiar
new assistant, Anthony Tidwell.
 

 

Will
the group be able to come up with a solution to keep local businesses
safe, or will the mayor finally get his way? Come along for the ride
as the residents of Sugar Mountain learn they may be in for more
trouble than anyone suspects.

The
Secret of Dunhaven Castle

 

Cate
Kensie Mysteries Book 1

 

by
Nellie H. Steele

 

Genre:
Cozy Mystery

 

 

How
in the world could she now own a castle?

 

Shy,
introverted Dr. Cate Kensie never imagined that she would inherit a
beautiful, and oddly quirky, castle nestled in the picturesque
Scottish Highlands. Truthfully, she was sure that she didn’t have
any family left after her parents died in a car accident several
years before, but then she had gotten the phone call, and her entire
world had turned upside down.
 

 

That
was when she discovered that she had family in Scotland, and her
distant family member, Gertrude MacKenzie, had passed away, leaving
her Dunhaven Castle and a golden timepiece with the mysterious phone
call: ALWAYS KEEP AN EYE ON YOUR TIME.

 

Soon
after she leaves the only life she’s ever known in the US with her
four-legged best friend, the adorable Riley, she quickly finds that
owning this castle is not the fairytale she expected. Mysterious
events occur that leave Cate wondering if her new home is haunted or
if she’s losing her mind.

 

Will
Cate be able to unravel the mysteries of Dunhaven Castle before it’s
too late? Or will the secrets be too much for Cate to handle?

 

Find
out if Cate can uncover the secrets her new home holds in

If
you could go back in time and clear your family’s name, would you?

 

Dr.
Cate Kensie, now known as Lady Catherine Kensie, the mistress of
Dunhaven Castle, still can’t believe her life. Somehow, moved to
Scotland, inherited a castle that’s more than meets the eye, and is
the proud–and sometimes reluctant– owner of an amazing family
heirloom. But there’s a secret Cate must protect about her new
life, a secret that no one but Jack Reid, the estate manager, knows
of.
 

 

As
Cate learns more about her new home, she discovers that in 1856 there
was a murder at Dunhaven and non-other than her own ancestor,
Randolph MacKenzie, was accused and convicted of the crime. However,
the more she learns about the murder at Dunhaven, the more confusing
things become. All of the evidence is there, but the answers still
don’t add up.

 

Will
Cate have the courage to dive into a centuries-old murder to clear
her family’s name? Or will she find out the hard way that sometimes
it’s best to leave the past in the past where it can’t hurt you?

Picture
me sitting serenely at my desk surrounded by my four-legged office
assistants. The dog warms my feet, and the cat provides the purr-fict
background music. I sip hot tea, sift through handwritten notes, and
place fingers on the keyboard as thoughts take shape. Such is the joy
of writing.

 

As
a child, I took a book everywhere—to family dinners, to doctor’s
offices, and of course to bed. Years later, a newspaper article
inspired me to put pen to paper and submit my thoughts—my words—to
the editor. Before I knew it, I was writing weekly columns and blogs.
Then came a book co-written with my dog. (What? Doesn’t everyone do
that?)
Now
I’m living a dream I never knew I had—writing cozy animal
mysteries featuring a dog and cat who talk to their owner. If a dog
can write a book, surely animals can communicate. Naturally, my
office assistants help with the dialogue. And, yes, they are angling
to be listed as co-authors.
By
the way, if you can’t find me, I’m traveling in the UK doing
research for my next mystery—don’t judge.

Trouble
on Main Street

 

Sugar
Mountain Book 1

 

 

A
cozy mountain town, a sweet romance, and a secret society of sneaky
women…

 

The
sleepy hamlet of Sugar Mountain harbors a secret society of women.
Don’t misunderstand—the society itself is not secret—it’s the
true nature of the group that is hush-hush.

 

Sugar
Mountain is the kind of charming village that tourists adore. If you
like small-town charm, quirky shops, and local art, this is the place
for you. But when a blood smeared package shows up at the post office
and it appears to be linked to a scheme that threatens Heidi
Collinsworth’s historic home, the town takes on a sinister vibe.
Heidi would lay odds that slimy Mayor Winslow is involved, but even
with the enquiring skills of The Sugar Mountain Ladies Historical
Society at work, proof is scarce.

 

The
new guy in town, Adam Williams, is determined not to get involved in
Sugar Mountain’s business. His last job in a big city planning
office ruined his life, but Heidi needs his help. No matter how hard
he tries to stay detached, Adam finds himself eyeball deep in Heidi’s
problems, as well as the needs of her teenage son and a homeless
dog.

 

With
conflicting theories abound and tensions running high, it’s up to
the ladies of the society to don disguises and go undercover. If
they’re not careful, the town may fall to a wrecking ball, Heidi
may fall for Adam, and the secret society will be exposed.

Luna Lane’s witches, werewolves, and vampires welcome you to the Spooky Games Club—in which even the winners could find themselves six feet under

Saturday, October 31st, 2020

 

 

Broomsticks
and Board Games

 

A
Spooky Games Club Mystery Book 1

 

by
Amy McNulty

 

Genre:
Cozy Paranormal Mystery

 

 

Dahlia
Poplar is a genuine witch, an unofficial gofer, and Luna Lane’s only
cursed resident.

 

With
a werewolf best friend, a vampire ex-boyfriend, and a ghost for a
hanger-on, Dahlia is far from the most unusual dweller of her sleepy
small town, but she’s the only one unable to leave. Dahlia has to
perform at least one good deed per day—or she’s one step closer to
turning to stone.
 

 

Fortunately,
the residents of Luna Lane have plenty of tasks for Dahlia to
complete to avert the curse until Cable Woodward, fetching professor
and nephew of her elderly neighbor, stops by for the semester on
sabbatical. Attempting to help Cable’s uncle work through the trauma
of losing his wife, Dahlia uncovers the man’s collection of board
games, which leads to him reminiscing about the long-forgotten Luna
Lane Games Club.
 

 

Dahlia
reestablishes Games Club, only to find evidence of a number of
horrible demises connected to the original group. While trying to
uncover the truth about the deaths, Dahlia has to fight off her
curse, protect her elderly neighbor from becoming the next victim,
and most vexing of all, keep Cable from figuring out Luna Lane’s
supernatural secrets. Only with eerie board games like these, there
may not be a loser—or even a winner—who survives.
 

 

Luna
Lane’s witches, werewolves, and vampires welcome you to the Spooky
Games Club—in which even the winners could find themselves six feet
under. This cozy paranormal mystery is perfect for fans of Adele
Abbott, Amanda M. Lee, Nancy Warren, Angie Fox, and Sara Bourgeois.
With a witch’s broom that acts like a pet and a focus on games,
Spooky Games Club Mysteries also weaves in themes familiar to cozy
pet mystery and cozy craft & hobby mystery readers.

Enchantments
and Escape Rooms

 

A
Spooky Games Club Mystery Book 2

 

 

After
the disaster of the month before, Dahlia Poplar, cursed witch and
helper extraordinaire, is ready for her serene, supernatural small
town life to return to normal. However, her hopes for a more peaceful
existence don’t last when a childhood friend moves back to Luna
Lane to open up an escape room.
 

 

With
the Spooky Games Club thriving, Dahlia decides to help her friend by
using her magic to quickly get his business up and running. Dahlia’s
enchantments accomplish the task, but before the Games Club has a
chance to enjoy the new attraction, a test of the escape room results
in a freak, fatal accident. Riddled with guilt, Dahlia wonders where
her enchantments went wrong—or if there’s something more to the
disaster.
 

 

The
only way to divine whether or not the death was her fault, the result
of an accident, or murder is to investigate—and perhaps even play
the dangerous game herself. In this one-hour escape room, failure to
escape could mean death, not just for Dahlia, but for those she holds
most dear.

Potions
and Playing Cards

 

A
Spooky Games Club Mystery Book 3

 

 

Fixated
on researching ways to break her curse once and for all, jinxed witch
and do-gooder Dahlia Poplar doesn’t know how well she’ll do in
the upcoming Euchre Tournament, the Luna Lane Spooky Games Club’s
first sponsored event. With visiting professor Cable Woodward due to
depart to spend more of his sabbatical on the road, Dahlia can’t
admit that he may be the reason she’s so determined to finally
leave behind the cozy comforts of home.
 

 

Unfortunately,
her efforts stir up unwanted attention from the one who cursed Dahlia
to begin with, the evil witch whose shadow has loomed over all of the
dreadful events in Luna Lane. When the tournament ends prematurely,
there’s a body charred to ashes, and Dahlia takes it upon herself
to figure out if the wicked witch is behind the disaster. Somehow,
she needs to brew the right potion to break her curse while solving
the paranormal message encoded in the club’s playing cards, all
while keeping her loved ones safe.
 

 

Her
very life may be the ante she risks to get to the bottom of
everything that’s been plaguing her since birth—and if she can’t
bluff her way to winning, Dahlia Poplar may prove to be the dead card
that’s no longer in play.

The
Corpse Who Knew Too Much

 

A
Food Blogger Mystery Book 4

 

by
Debra Sennefelder

 

Genre:
Cozy Mystery

 

 

Food
blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that’s heating up fast . .
.

 

 

Building
on her recipe for success with her food blog, Hope at Home, Hope is
teaching her first blogging class at the local library in Jefferson,
Connecticut. She’s also learning about podcasts, including a
true-crime one called 
Search
for the Missing, 
hosted
by Hope’s childhood friend, Devon Markham. Twenty years ago on
Valentine’s Day, right here in Jefferson, Devon’s mom disappeared and
was never found. Finally Devon has returned to solve the mystery of
what happened to her mother—and she asks Hope to help.

 

The
next day Hope discovers Devon’s apartment has been ransacked. Her
laptop with the research on her mother’s cold case is missing, and
Devon is nowhere to be found. When her friend’s body is later
discovered in a car wreck, Hope is convinced it’s no accident.
Clearly, Devon was too close to the truth, and the cold-blooded
killer is still at large in Jefferson. Now it’s up to Hope to find
the guilty party—before the food blogger herself becomes the next
subject of another true-crime podcast . . .
