France Brody captures the atmosphere and language of 1920s England while delivering a captivating plot in the ninth book of this traditional cozy mystery series featuring private investigator Kate Shackleton.

Yorkshire, 1927. Eclipse fever grips the nation, and when beloved theatre star Selina Fellini approaches trusted sleuth Kate Shackleton to accompany her to a viewing party on thegrounds of Giggleswick School Chapel, Kate suspects an ulterior motive.

During the eclipse, Selina’s friend and co-star Billy Moffatt disappears and is later found dead in the chapel grounds. Kate can’t help but dig deeper and soon learns that two other members of the theatre troupe died in similarly mysterious circumstances in the past year. With the help of Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, Kate sets about investigating the deaths -and whether there is a murderer in the company.

When Selina’s elusive husband Jarrod– who was injured in the war and is subject to violent mood swings―comes back on the scene, Kate begins to imagine something far deadlier at play, and wonders just who will be next to pay the ultimate price for fame.  (Amazon)

Witches of Skye : Reap what You Sow (Book Two) Paranormal Fantasy by [Briers, M. L]Jack was gone, and I was fine, so why did my family feel the need to cheer me up? Even Moira was being nice to me, and that was surreal.
Life was normal again. Well, not exactly normal, we did have bat-boy the vampire and split-personality the werewolf that we’d practically adopted as pets, but nobody was dying – and then they were.
So, Jack was back; I was cooking up a storm in between trying not to get myself or anyone else killed, that old dark magic was rumbling in the veins of the Earth beneath us, and I was still managing to find the time to play charades with the tourists. I think I need a holiday, but would I survive life on Skye to have one?

Book two in the standalone series of Paranormal Fantasy.
Book One – Witches of Skye – So It Begins  (Amazon)

In other stories, some journeys are external and take us to locations from Dubai to England’s West Country to rural Ontario and some, like The Decision, on deeply personal and internal voyages.  (Amazon)

But the action seems to follow her as a fistfight breaks out between neighbors Rosemarie Brewer and Lola Hansen at one of the first funerals she’s in charge of running. It exposes a nasty dispute and Rosemarie’s husband, Alan, is found murdered shortly after.

Lola’s husband, Kyle, is immediately arrested. Desiree, whose own father’s death was devastating, has always viewed Kyle as a second father. Determined to clear his name, Desiree jumps head first into the investigation and quickly discovers that Alan had several unsavory habits at his job and in his personal life, including putting assets into his mistress’s account to hide them from Rosemarie. People murder for money and love all the time, and there’s no telling who he offended just enough to push them over the edge.
