The Crozats quickly establish alibis, but Maggie’s boyfriend, Detective Bo Durand, remains under suspicion. With Bo sidelined during the investigation, Maggie finds herself forced to work with an unlikely ally: longtime family enemy Rufus Durand. Her sleuthing uncovers more suspects than drummers drumming, and lands her in the crosshairs of the murderer.
The sleigh bells are jingling, and the clock is ticking for Maggie and Rufus, who must catch the killer or it will be the opposite of a Joyeux Noel in A Cajun Christmas Killing, the recipe-stuffed third installment of USA Today bestselling author Ellen Byron’s Cajun Country mysteries. (Goodreads)
Cat lovers, rejoice! The second installment in Mandy Morton’s cat-driven series has arrived with Cat Among the Pumpkins, where crime-solving is in the capable paws of felines. And these cats haven’t been declawed.
As All Hallows’ Eve approaches, Hettie Bagshot of The No. 2 Feline Detective Agency has more than just a ghost and warlock tart on her plate. Along with her faithful sidekick, Tilly, the tabby duo set out to investigate an old crime and a spate of new murders.
Why is Mavis Spitforce dressed as a pumpkin? Can Irene Peggledrip really talk to cats from the spirit world? Did Milky Myers murder his family on Halloween, longer ago than anyone can remember? All questions the pair must answer before the case can be solved. As the November fog closes in, where will the killer strike next—and will there be enough catnip to go around? (Amazon)

Twila Winchester isn’t used to being in charge but that’s exactly where she finds herself when her sisters leave town for a business convention.
Twila thinks everything is going to be fun and games even though she has one daughter, two nieces and one mischievous aunt to contend with. She’s focused on cooking and having a good time … until a roving troupe of renaissance performers make camp on the Winchester property and trouble starts brewing.
When the head of the group starts making predictions – and unfortunately gets left behind – Twila has her hands full. It seems Aunt Tillie doesn’t trust the new guest and she’s determined to turn the three younger Winchesters into investigative dynamos.
Twila is working on a limited timetable. She must solve a mystery involving some missing items, open her home to a stranger and crack down on Aunt Tillie’s “lying” classes as her aunt attempts to teach Bay, Clove and Thistle how to manipulate everyone in their paths.
Oh, and she has to do it all before Marnie and Winnie return to town.
No pressure, though.
Note: This is a 28,000-word short set in the Wicked Witches of the Midwest world. It is set back in time so it can be read at any point in the timeline. (Amazon)

From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes the next deadly delicious Carrie Jorgenson adventure in paradise…
Carrie Jorgenson is living the dream in Hawaii. She has a steady job as a waitress at the Loco Moco Café, a hot new love interest in her manager, and the curtain’s about to rise on her role in a local theater production. But when she’s asked to deliver food to a guest at the Aloha Lagoon resort—who then drops dead!—her dreams quickly become the stuff of nightmares.
World renowned food critic Randolph Cremshaw has no shortage of enemies. He’s rude, patronizing, and famous for his one-star reviews. After the coffee Carrie delivers is discovered to have been poisoned, she and the café quickly rise to the top of the suspects list. A jealous co-worker, thefts at the restaurant, and a performance that threatens to blow up in Carrie’s face only make things worse. With an already full plate, Carrie is also forced into making a decision that may change everything for her. But this all pales in comparison when she comes face to face with Randolph’s killer and what might be the final curtain call…of her life.
