Each day during the month of March I will feature three Easter, Spring or St Patrick’s Day themed books. Hope you find some that are new to you and some that you enjoy. Enjoy your reading.
The newest yarn from the national bestselling author of Skein of the Crime.
Spring is in the air of Fort Connor, Colorado-a time of new beginnings for the House of Lambspun knitters. But for fellow knitter Jennifer’s new real estate client, it is his end. He’s been murdered and Kelly Flynn is left unraveling a tangle of clues. This may prove to be her most challenging project yet. (Goodreads)
(No. 2 in the Liturgical Mystery series) St. Germaine’s police chief, Hayden Konig, returns in this hilarious sequel to THE ALTO WORE TWEED. He’s beginning to write his second Chandler-style who-dun-it (an effort that is not going as well as he might wish), when he’s called to England to help solve a murder at Yorkminster. As the season of Lent begins, there’s an interim priest at St. Barnabas, a priest with a wife, and she has an agenda. If the “Edible Last Supper” (featuring the Mary Magdalene Coffee Bar), wasn’t enough, Hayden also has to deal with a Clown Eucharist, snakes loose in the church, the Fung Shui Altar Guild, and a dwarf verger named Wenceslas. As Easter approaches, it becomes clear that the murder in York has repercussions far exceeding the borders of England. Two dead bodies and counting. Now Hayden has some real problems. (Goodreads)
It’s snow accident when a young woman’s icy demise sends Claire’s vacation to hell in a handbasket
Skiing with her family in Breckenridge, Colorado, gift basket designer Claire Hanover hears a terrified scream cut the frigid mountain air. She is horror-stricken to find Stephanie Contino, the sister of her daughter’s boyfriend, dead on the slopes. While everyone else assumes the death was an accident, Claire is suspicious of the extra ski tracks that cross dangerously into Stephanie’s path. But the police are skeptical of foul play, even as more signs point to murder.
When incriminating clues put her daughter Judy in danger, Claire investigates and finds trouble around every mogul. Between interviewing a daredevil snowboarder and giving ski lessons to a drug boss, she uncovers a chilling conspiracy that could turn deadly for her family.
