Emma Lee Raines sees dead people

Proprietor of the Eternal Slumber Funeral Home, Emma Lee can see, hear, and talk to ghosts of murdered folks. And when her high school nemesis is found dead, Jade Lee Peel is the same old mean girl—trying to come between Emma Lee and her hot boyfriend, Sheriff Jack Henry Ross, all over again.

There’s only one way for Emma Lee to be free of the trash-talking ghost—solve the murder so the former prom queen can cross over.

But the last thing Jade Lee wants is to leave the town where she had her glory days. And the more Emma Lee investigates on her own, the more complicated Miss Popularity turns out to be. Now Emma Lee will have to work extra closely with her hunky lawman to get to the twisty truth.

Curried Away by Gail Oust

Curried Away by Gail Oust

FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS
-Gail Oust

Or, maybe for whom the clock ticks, would be more appropriate when discussing the dreaded “D” word. Every writer dreams of having a book contract, but with every contract comes a deadline. I tend to believe that the “dead” part of deadline is significant. Deadlines are sneaky devils. They lull you into a false sense of complacency when they’re six, nine, or twelve months away. You think you have all the time in the world to whip your story into submission. While in this state of bliss, you take occasional days off to have a little fun, entertain out of town guests, or just goof off. You might agree to speaking engagements, attend a writers conference or two, or even volunteer to moderate a panel. No worry, you tell yourself, you have plenty of time. You have everything under control.

Bam! Then it hits you. A closer look at the calendar reveals the deadline you thought tame …

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan – Book Tour + Giveaway

Telling Tails by Sofie Ryan is book 4 in the Second Chance Cat Mystery series. This fun series features a great cast of characters. From second-hand shop owner Sarah, to a ‘gang’ of seniors in their prime and investigating crime, to a cat named Elvis, the eclectic mix of characters had me laughing out loud.

The author manages to tell a cohesive story with a well-plotted mystery, one that you will devour in a single setting. The compelling mystery, the great setting, and the fun characters are what keeps me coming back to this series. I’m planning on going back to read earlier books in the series that I missed. If you enjoy cozy mysteries with cats, some ‘older’ sleuths, and a story you won’t want to put down, I highly recommend this series. You won’t be disappointed.

Cat Got Your Diamonds by Julie Chase – Guest Post

Cat Got Your Diamonds by Julie Chase – Guest Post

Inspiration in the Big Easy

I fell in love with New Orleans last summer when I went there on business. I did the usual tourist things, walking tours and Voo Doo dinners. I rode the ferry to Algiers and spent an evening aboard a steamboat on the Mighty Mississippi. I also spent several days in the numerous wonderful and captivating museums of the French Quarter learning about the city’s history, Mardi Gras traditions and the endless tragedies of Hurricane Katrina. The trip changed me.

And then I rode a streetcar to the Garden District.

I saw the most beautiful homes Like nothing my Midwestern eyes had ever seen, and the stories began to formulate. Photos don’t do the area justice, but I’m going to try.

The above is just one of so many fantastic beauties. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to learn everything about this place immediately. So, I took a walking tour through the neighborhood and asked a ton of questions. I’m certain my guide wanted to muzzle me. The rest of my group …

Deadly Dog Days by Jamie M. Blair

A Dog Days Mystery Book 1

New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal.

When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both named suspects for the murder, Cameron takes solving the crime into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric co-workers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency.

As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.
