Many a Twist: A County Cork Mysery by [Sheila Connolly]Pub owner Maura Donovan hasn’t seen her mother for over twenty years, so when she suddenly shows up in Maura’s pub, Maura’s not sure what to expect. Her mother is trying to find a life for herself back home and has taken up a position working with the new owners of the Crann Mor hotel just outside Skibbereen. Until her new boss is found dead in the gardens, dumped down the hillside behind the hotel.

Now, trying to rekindle the relationship they’ve lost, Maura must investigate in order to clear her mother’s name. It’s not so easy though, as long-time residents of County Cork, including the families of her employee Mick, and the family of the deceased hotel owner, have bottled deep dark family secrets not meant to be uncorked. And someone will kill to keep them that way.

How far would you go to protect your family? Maura tests the age-old question in Many a Twist, the charming and atmospheric sixth County Cork mystery from New York Times bestselling author Sheila Connolly.  (Amazon)

Heist Society (Kate Diamond Adventure Series Book 3) by [Dobbs, Leighann]It was the worst assignment of Kate Diamond’s career. Worse than the time she had to jump over a snake pit. Worse than the time she had to steal a ruby from an ice hotel and definitely worse than the time she toppled into a volcano.

Why? Because of one person. Ace Mason. In a quirky twist of fate, her ex-FBI partner and ex-boyfriend was now her new partner at the Ritzholdt museum. Their assignment is to pose as a newly-rich married couple on board their private luxury yacht to ferret out the famous international jewel thief, The Lemur. Too bad the mission is plagued with problems including a cast of quirky suspects and the troublesome fact that Kate and Ace have to share a room.

Lucky thing Kate has the help of her retired jewel thief parents and their band of thieves, safecrackers and con men from the Golden Capers retirement village because everyone on board the yacht is suspicious. But while Kate is busy scrutinizing the suspects and dodging Ace’s attempts to reconcile, The Lemur is busy crafting a clever misdirection that could ruin all of Kate’s well-laid plans.  (Amazon)

Oil & Water by [Andrews, Nikki]

When gallery owner Ginny Brent accepts a post as judge for the prestigious Oil & Water Arts Festival in Ogunquit, Maine, she is looking forward to a weekend of pampering, good food, and camaraderie with creative people. Family feuds, business spats, a barroom brawl, and lobster pot thefts are definitely not on the menu.

Then the body of a missing artist turns up on the rocky shore—just in time for Ginny to find it. Despite her determination not to get involved, she finds herself tracing the threads between deadly rivals, non-kissing cousins, and an artist’s sketchpad.

Finally, she finds herself on a park ranger’s tiny boat, up the proverbial creek, on the track of a killer.  (Amazon)

When his wife’s body is found—by Kate and her dog, no less—Michael is strangely unable to remember where he was the night she died. Since Michael has no alibi, Kate steps up to uncover what happened. What she walks into is a tangled web of deceit, obsession, and immigration fraud . . . with Michael trapped in the middle.  (Amazon)
