Living the Vida Lola (A Lola Cruz Mystery Book 1) by [Bourbon, Melissa ]Meet Lola Cruz. After paying her dues as an intern, she’s now a full-fledged detective at Camacho and Associates. Her boss is Manny Camacho, a muy caliente former cop with a mysterious ex-wife, a Lara Croft look-alike girlfriend, and a sudden personal interest in Lola.

Her first big case? A missing mother who may not want to be found. And to make her already busy life even more complicated, Lola’s helping her cousin plan her quinceañera and battling her family and their old-fashioned views on women and careers. She’s also reunited with the gorgeous Jack Callaghan, her high school crush whom she shamelessly tailed years ago and photographed doing the horizontal salsa with some other lucky girl.

Lola takes it all in stride, but when the subject of her search ends up dead, she realizes she has a lot more to worry about. Soon she finds herself wrapped up in the possibly shady practices of a tattoo parlor, local politics, and someone with serious—maybe deadly—road rage. To top it all off, her treasured post-coital pictures of Jack are missing!

Still, Lola is well-equipped to handle these challenges. She’s a black-belt in kung fu, and her body isn’t her only weapon. She’s got smarts, sass, and more tenacity than her Mexican mafioso-wannabe grandfather. A few of her famous margaritas don’t hurt, either.

Hasta La Vista, Lola (A Lola Cruz Mystery Book 2) by [Bourbon, Melissa]When Lola comes home to her parents’ house to find a horde of relatives mourning her death, no one is more surprised than she is. The news had reported that one Lola Cruz, PI was found murdered in an alley, causing great alarm in the Cruz family.

Before Lola can say “boo,” a cop comes to the house. It turns out the dead woman had a driver’s license with Lola’s information.

Between avoiding an unsavory ex-boyfriend, sorting out mixed signals from the very interested but not yet committed Jack Callaghan, and filling in as a waitress at her parents’ Mexican restaurant, Lola tries to find out who the woman was and why she stole her identity. Was the woman hiding from someone who meant her harm, or is there someone out there who wants Lola dead?

This follow-up to Bourbon’s debut novel, Living the Vida Lola, is a red-hot, fun-filled mystery. Lola, a black belt in kung fu who loves to salsa dance, makes for a sexy, unique, and vivacious detective.

Bare-Naked Lola (A Lola Cruz Mystery Book 3) by [Bourbon, Melissa]Going undercover is second nature for Private Investigator Lola Cruz, but she’s out of her league when the case of a murdered Royals Courtside Dancer leads her to a local nudist resort.

Parading around the sidelines of Sacramento’s professional basketball scene in a barely-there cheerleading outfit is one thing—but parading around in nothing but a smile?

If she has any chance of hiding this from her traditional family and on-again/off-again boyfriend Jack, she’s going to have a lot more than her duct tape bra and killer dance moves to keep under wraps.

Fearful Fortunes and Terrible Tarot: Wonky Inn Book 4 by [Wycherley, Jeannie]There’s a psychic fayre heading to Whittlecombe.

Alf, the witch, didn’t see it coming … perhaps she should have done.

Whittle Inn is up and running and gaining in popularity. Proud owner Alfhild Daemonne can afford to relax, can’t she?
Apparently not.

When her neighbouring inn decides to host the south west region’s largest ever Psychic and Holistic Convention, you’d think that would allow Alf the opportunity to make lots of new friends. Think of it! Dozens and dozens of fortune tellers, mediums, diviners, psychics, rune-tellers, witch doctors, and even a voodoo priestess from New Orleans – all gathered together in one big field.

Not so.

Alf is banned from attending the Fayre and looks set to miss out – until Wizard Shadowmender sends her on an undercover operation that is.

In the meantime, someone is sending Alf death threats and many of her friends in the village of Whittlecombe are subject to fearful fortune tellings and terrible tarot readings at the Fayre.

It appears that dark forces are gathering in Whittlecombe.

Will Alf make it to her 31st birthday?

And just who is it that wishes her harm?

Find out when you read Wonky Inn Book 4 today.

Fearful Fortunes and Terrible Tarot is Book 4 of the Wonky Inn series from Amazon UK bestselling author Jeannie Wycherley.

Praise for The Wonkiest Witch: Wonky Inn Book 1

‘Finally a strong, adventurous fun female witch.’ Amazon Reviewer

‘Emotionally thrilling, action packed, and engaging adventure filled with unknown danger, dark secrets and some seriously wonky magic….. Highly entertaining!’ Amazon Reviewer

‘This book is awesome the characters are amazing, and the writing is out of this world good.’ Amazon Reviewer

‘The characters are so full of life that they jump out of the page.’ Amazon Reviewer

‘I so enjoyed this deliciously quirky (and, yes, wonky!) story. I expected it to be good but it is much better than that. I’m not sure how to slide this entertaining story into a genre ‘slot’ but I also don’t think it’s very important to label it with anything other than “a surprisingly wonderful adventure”. I love it and I highly recommend it and sincerely hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.’ Amazon Reviewer  (Amazon)

Poetic Poison (A Swansneck Village Mystery, # 2) by [Vale, V S]Do you love engaging characters, a puzzling whodunit and captivating settings? Then read on and discover the Swansneck Village Mystery Series!


Readers’ Favorite 5 Star Award for the series: “A delightful cozy mystery that will satisfy the most die-hard amateur-sleuthing murder mystery fan. The essence of the novel is deliciously authentic, and I was enchanted with the genuineness of the town and its inhabitants. Jenny is an exciting new sleuth similar in style and disposition to Agatha Raisin”


She was dying to read poetry—and a poem led to her death…

Having returned to her roots in the North of England, Jenny Bradshaw is settling into her new life in the Victoriana hotspot of Swansneck Village. But while checking a used handbag in her shop, Passion for Vintage Fashion, she discovers a page torn from a book of poetry, emblazoned with a murderous threat. What’s more, the previous owner of the bag, Grace Alty, is now dead…

Although the police say she died of natural causes, Jenny suspects otherwise. Especially when her Grandmother states that Grace was a close friend of Jenny’s dear departed great-uncle. But when Jenny gets accused of losing her uncle’s stamp collection, she resigns herself to many months of her grandmother’s wrath; that is, until Jenny resolves to prove her innocence. Determined to hunt down the missing stamp collection, Jenny must first unravel the mysterious circumstances of Grace’s death—and she has several prime suspects in her sights.

Between supporting her old school friend while he competes at the Founder’s Day Fete, and selling vintage fashions at the Swan Mill Hotel Antiques Fayre, Jenny resorts to desperate measures to find the killer, trace the stamps and clear her name. Not to mention having to juggle her other troubles… Like her father heading into a disastrous liaison with the village floozy, or the Clan of village matriarchs plotting to turn her into a kitten-owning spinster!

Poetic Poison is a puzzling whodunit with a cast of complex, eccentric characters you’ll want to follow. If you like mysteries from the golden era, and a plot that keeps you guessing, then you’ll love V.S. Vale’s second instalment in the Swansneck Village Mysteries. A classic series in the making!

Buy Poetic Poison and become immersed in this page turner of a cozy mystery today!

While each Swansneck Village book is a stand-alone mystery, you may prefer to read the series in order from book one, Murder Most Fowl, so you can follow the characters as they are brought to realistic and unforgettable life!

Please Note; This book is written in British English and contains no graphic violence, sex, or strong language.

Any one of them could have a dark motive. Any one of them could be walking into a trap. When the fog lifts, it will all be much clearer—that a single, shattering act of violence has marked each of them forever.  (Amazon)
