A Cozy Mystery Paranormal Romance
Welcome to Everlasting, Maine, where there’s no such thing as normal.
Anna Crawford is well aware her town is filled with supernaturals, but she isn’t exactly willing to embrace her paranormal gifts. Her aunt says she’s a witch-in-denial. All Anna wants is to live a quiet “normal” life and run her business, Witch’s Brew Coffee Shop and Bakery. But everything is about to be turned upside down the moment Jackson Argent walks into her life.
Jackson isn’t sure why he agreed to come back to his boyhood home of Everlasting. It’s like a spell was cast and he couldn’t say no. Covering the Cranberry Festival isn’t exactly the hard-hitting news this reporter is used to. But when a local death is ruled an accident, and the police aren’t interested in investigating, he takes it upon himself to get to the bottom of the mystery. To do that, he’ll need to enlist the help of the beautiful coffee shop owner.
It soon becomes apparent things are not what they seem and more than coffee is brewing in Everlasting.
Even long memories fade, but murder never dies.

“Colorful characters, intriguing, intelligent mystery, plus the state of Wyoming leaping off every page.” — Emilie Richards, USA Today Bestselling Author
What readers are saying about the Caught Dead in Wyoming series:
“She writes a little like Janet Evanovich only better.”
“E.M.’s internal monologues are sharp, snappy and often hilarious.”
“A terrific series with a western flair. . . . Great characters that you would want as your friends. Smart, funny, but not perfect.”
“Hoping this series lasts forever!”
“McLinn has created in E.M. a female protagonist who is flawed but likable, never silly or cartoonish, and definitely not made of cardboard.”
A Caught Dead in Wyoming cameo
In Ride the River: Rodeo Knights, a new western romance with suspense from Patricia McLinn, Reggie (Regina) Moran is following her dream of becoming an investigator by tracking bank robberies in towns associated with the rodeo circuit. She’s focused on catching this robber … until she discovers her high school sweetheart, rodeo cowboy Chapin Johnson, is a prime suspect.
One of the three rodeo towns they visit is Sherman, Wyoming, so expect some cameos by Caught Dead in Wyoming characters. First-time visitors won’t get lost, though, because Ride the River: Rodeo Knights is a standalone read.’ (Amazon)
