The Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way by Frances Metzman

About the Book


The Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way Cozy Mystery Wild River Consulting & Publishing, LLC (June 21, 2018) Paperback: 506 pages ISBN-10: 9781941948064 ISBN-13: 978-1941948064 Digital ASIN: B07CV2GP9Z
Would you move a dead body for the sake of your best friend? Ask cha-cha babe Celia Ewing, a sixty-five-year-old widow who has just settled into Boca Pelicano Palms, the Florida retirement community of her dreams. When Celia’s best friend Marcy calls her and their friend Deb for help in the middle of the night, they find a naked Marcy trapped under the body of her beau, the community’s board president, Melvin. And he’s dead. The three friends secretly move Melvin back to his apartment setting off a chain of events that will threaten to tear their community apart and send them to jail. Melvin is one of a number of residents who are dying under suspicious circumstances; and soon Celia becomes an amateur sleuth in an attempt to identify what she suspects is a serial murderer.
Filled with humorous, witty observations about retirement communities, the realities of getting older, and the promise of new love, the Cha-Cha Babes of Pelican Way celebrates the deep bonds of female friendships, the desire for companionship at any age, and shows us that it’s never too late to learn how to cha-cha through life.

The Plunge, A Lake Mystery (Aggie Mundeen Mystery) by Nancy G. West

 

About the Book


The Plunge (Aggie Mundeen Lake Mystery) Cozy Mystery 1st in Series (Spin-Off of previous series with this character.) Wildside Press (October 9, 2018) Paperback: 136 pages ISBN-10: 1479449326 ISBN-13: 978-1479449323 Digital ASIN: B07J5K8DDG
When Aggie Mundeen accompanies San Antonio Detective Sam Vanderhoven on a weekend getaway to Lake Placid, she thinks it’s going to be fun in the sun. What could be better than caretaking a friend’s cottage on the Guadalupe River in Central Texas? Never mind that Sam intends to discretely investigate the theft of that friend’s boat... Unfortunately, the weather has plans of its own. Buckets of rain and gusting winds roil the lake, turning the peaceful Guadalupe into an angry, raging river. As darkness descends, lightning reveals two people arguing on a dock across the river. When lightning flashes again, they are gone. Did Aggie and Sam witness an accident? A drowning? A murder? The Plunge sweeps readers along with the threat of looming disaster, helpless before an untamable force, where sleuthing takes a back seat to survival...

Cat Cafe - Book Tour and GIVEAWAY!!!


Cat Café (Crazy Cat Lady Cozy Mystery Series) by Mollie Hunt

 

About the Book

 
Cozy Mystery 5th in Series Self Published (October 29, 2018) 
Paperback: 330 pages ISBN-10: 1986478955 ISBN-13: 978-1986478953 
Digital ASIN: B07HKQ4TKT
A body is discovered on the floor of the cat café, and all the black cats are missing!
Sixty-something cat shelter volunteer Lynley Cannon always finds more trouble than a cat in catnip, but this time it’s not about her. Someone is targeting very senior citizens, and when Bea Landrew, elderly owner of the Blue Cat café turns up dead, Lynley’s mom Carol could be next.
Handsome Detective Devon is looking for a link between the victims when he makes a different sort of connection— with Lynley! It’s been a long time since the cat lady had romance in her life, but while her mom is in danger, the case comes first.
It appears the cat café will go the way of its deceased owner, but Bea’s grandson, a slick Miami businessman, steps in at the last minute. Arthur is not a cat person so why would he bother? Romeo, the big Russian Blue, senses ulterior motives, but who will listen to a cat?
A black cat rescue, an antique photograph, an elaborate payback. Is this killer seeking justice or vengeance? With death as the objective, the results are the same.

NC-17 by Larissa Reinhart - Spotlight and GIVEAWAY!


NC-17 (Maizie Albright Star Detective) by Larissa Reinhart

About the Book

 
Cozy Mystery/Women's Detective Fiction 3rd in Series
Past Perfect Press (December 4, 2018) Paperback, 370 pages 
ISBN13 - 9781732351660 Digital ASIN: B07HFVV7V7
#StillDetectiveing
As an ex-star of a hit teen detective show, Maizie Albright gets the youth demographic. Or so she thought. Now that she’s adulting, today’s kids make Maizie feel out of date. At least the youth she meets while doing community service at Black Pine’s exclusive healing resort, the Wellspring Center. When these teens aren’t vlogging their attempts to track down Big Foot, they’re trying to prove the Center is up to no good. Starting with the disappearance and possible murder of their not-as-young commander. A murder the police find as likely as Big Foot.
Maizie has her own suspicions about the new celebrity retreat. Particularly when she learns her ex-fiancé has been hired to run the Center. Kind of an issue when she thought Oliver was in prison. Kind of an issue when Nash, the man of her dreams, is out of commission.
Wait, not man of her dreams. Boss of her fantasies. Professionally speaking, of course.
While Maizie’s helping adolescent Youtubers detect a disappearance, she’s wrangling her mother’s wedding, assuaging an overzealous probation officer, and struggling to keep Nash Security Solutions solvent. Conspiracy theories collide with real-life catastrophes beginning with murder and possibly ending with Maizie’s life.

A Timeless Celebration - Spotlight and GIVEAWAY!!


A Timeless Celebration (Century Cottage Cozy Mysteries) by Dianne Ascroft

 

About the Book

 
Cozy Mystery 1st in Series Self Published (October 25, 2018)
Print Length: 245 pages ASIN: B07HF847NN
A small town, a big party, a stolen gift. When an artefact from the Titanic is stolen before her town's 150th anniversary celebration, it's up to Lois Stone to catch the thief.
Middle-aged widow Lois has moved from bustling Toronto to tranquil Fenwater and is settling into her new life away from the dangers of the city. Then two events happen that shatter her serenity: her house is burgled and an antique watch belonging to a Titanic survivor is stolen from the local museum. Her best friend, Marge, was responsible for the watch's safekeeping until its official presentation to the museum at the town's 150th anniversary party, and its disappearance will jeopardise her job and the museum's future. Lois won't let her friend take the blame and the consequences for the theft. She's determined to find the watch in time to save her best friend's job, the museum's future and the town's 150th anniversary celebration.
And so begins a week of new friends, apple and cinnamon muffins, calico cats, midnight intruders, shadowy caprine companions and more than one person with a reason to steal the watch, set against the backdrop of century houses on leafy residential streets, the swirling melodies of bagpipes, a shimmering heat haze and the burble of cool water.

Starving Hearts & Never Past Hope - Book Tour, Excerpt, and GIVEAWAY!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Starving Hearts
(Triangular Trade Trilogy #1)
By Janine Mendenhall
Christian Historical Romantic Suspense
Paperback & ebook, 300 Pages
May 16th 2016 by Heritage Beacon Fiction

Carol Award Finalist
Selah Award Finalist

Plagued by nightmares, Annette yearns to find her anonymous rescuer — the man who saved her life from a near deadly assault. Deep inside she is starving for companionship and a mutually respectful relationship. When Mr. Peter Adsley, an abolitionist pastor dealing with his own emotional baggage, agrees to a clandestine meeting, the event appears providential. But self-doubt, deception, and the schemes of a mutual enemy threaten to keep the pair apart. A phantom adversary will stop at nothing to win Annette’s dowry for himself, even if it means killing Peter.

Starving Hearts Excerpt #3

Sketchbook scene closing


Torn between captivation and shock, Peter watched her put the sketchbook back inside her bag
and slip the strap over her head. Then she looked up at him again.
“I told you, no one else knows about them. And they never will.”
“Indeed.”
“You do not trust me?”
“That is not the issue.”
She held her hands out to him. “Please, will you help me up? I would prefer discussing the issue,
as you call it, in a more equitable location, say perhaps on the bench beside you rather than kneeling
at your feet?” “Yes, of course.” Peter choked back a laugh, but paused when he saw how filthy his
hands were. “But . . . ” She glanced at her own hands, and then smiled. “You needn’t worry;
mine are nearly as bad. In fact, we are both a wretched jumble, but it matters naught.
I would rather be at your side than at your feet.” “Without a doubt,” he answered as he stood
up and took her hands, lifting her nearly weightless form to her feet. Then he froze.
A tingling sensation raced through his fingertips and up his arms. Her skin was like silk
beneath his thumbs. He attempted to clear a lump that had formed in his throat,
but the heat radiating from her touch made it nearly impossible to remember how.
So he simply stood there, holding her hands and gazing down into her eyes.
“Mr. Adsley? I say, Mr. Adsley, may I have my hands back now?”
Her eyes twinkled as she smiled, but before he could think of how to release his grasp,
there was another disturbance.



Praise for the Book

"Not only is this a delightful regency romance but it is also suspense filled mystery of the very best kind." - Amazon Review

"The author did a great job, maybe too great a job, describing the slave scenes. Spine tingling and suspenseful. I was biting my nails throughout much of this book." - Amazon Review


Never Past Hope
(Triangular Trade Trilogy #2)
By Janine Mendenhall
Christian Historical Romantic Suspense
Paperback & ebook, 308 Pages
September 10th 2018 by Heritage Beacon Fiction

Miss Mary Hope Adsley always considered herself to be the sensible one. But now, her sensibilities are unraveling around a man she thought she knew. After he attempted to marry her best friend—for money, no less—authorities charge Sir Steven Likebridge with masquerading as a gentleman and abduction. With his execution days away, Mary Hope desperately seeks to learn the truth about the man she loves.

Will the truth turn out to be worse than his lies?

Praise for the Book

"I thoroughly enjoyed this clean, historical fiction. . . enjoyed most that it is not the usual presentation of a regency novel." - Amazon Review

"A lovely story that shows how despicable each of us can be and yet God not only still loves us, but He was willing to die for us." - Amazon Review

About the Author


I love losing myself somewhere in time with Downton Abbey, Pride and Prejudice or a number of other classics like Jane Eyre and Redeeming Love. I cry over most things Nicholas Sparks (because they usually end sadly) and Amazing Grace, both the movie and the hymn, because they lead to the Ultimate happily ever after.
