Past Due for Murder: A Blue Ridge Library Mystery by [Victoria Gilbert]For fans of Miranda James and Jenn McKinlay, the third conspiratorially delightful third entry in Victoria Gilbert’s critically acclaimed Blue Ridge Library mysteries.

Has a curse fallen on the small town of Taylorsford, Virginia? After a young woman goes missing during a spring bonfire, library director Amy Webber must wade through the web of lies only to find a truth that she may not want to untangle.

Spring has sprung in quaint Taylorsford, Virginia, and the mayor has revived the town’s long-defunct May Day celebration to boost tourism. As part of the festivities, library director Amy Webber is helping to organize a research project and presentation by a local folklore expert. All seems well at first—but spring takes on a sudden chill when a university student inexplicably vanishes during a bonfire.

The local police cast a wide net to find the missing woman, but in a shocking turn of events, Amy’s swoon-worthy neighbor Richard Muir becomes a person of interest in the case. Not only is Richard the woman’s dance instructor, he also doesn’t have an alibi for the night the student vanished—or at least not one he’ll divulge, even to Amy.

When the missing student is finally discovered lost in the mountains, with no memory of recent events—and a dead body lying nearby—an already disturbing mystery takes on a sinister new hue. Blessed with her innate curiosity and a librarian’s gift for research, Amy may be the only one who can learn the truth in Past Due for Murder, Victoria Gilbert’s third charming Blue Ridge Library mystery.  (Amazon)

Spells And Cells: A Spellbinder Bay Cozy Paranormal Mystery - Book Three (Spellbinder Bay Paranormal Cozy Mystery Series 3) by [Short, Sam]A murder in a police cell is always tricky to explain away. When the victim is a werewolf, things become very complicated!

This is book number three in series. Although the reader might enjoy it as a standalone novel, the author strongly suggests that book number one – ‘Witch Way to Spellbinder Bay’ and book number two – ‘Broomsticks And Bones’ are read first.

Things are looking up for Millie Thorn. She’s finally enjoying life as a witch, and she’s even taken a part-time job teaching cookery in a school for paranormal children. She’s come to terms with the fact that the local policeman, Sergeant David Spencer, is her father, and she’s accepted that it might be better to wait a little longer until she drops that bombshell at his feet.

He already has an adopted daughter, who happens to be Millie’s best friend, and interfering in either of those relationships isn’t something Millie wishes to do. She’s also uncertain that the policeman will respond well to the news that he has a second daughter, so decides to sit on the news until the time is right.

That was the plan, anyway!

When a trouble-making werewolf is murdered while in police custody, and the magical poison is traced back to cakes that Millie may or may not have helped bake, things begin to go wrong. Quickly.

Learning that it was Sergeant Spencer who served the dead werewolf his final and fatal meal, it doesn’t take long for some members of the community to begin pointing fingers at him. Or to be more precise, it doesn’t take long for certain members of the community to start pointing sharp claws situated at the end of hairy arms at him.

Vowing to help clear Sergeant Spencer’s name and protect him from angry werewolves, Millie is thrown into an investigation she doesn’t think she can solve. Things are made more urgent when Sergeant Spencer falls foul of a magical spell and begins losing his memory and his status as one of the few humans with privileged access to the paranormal world.

When it becomes apparent that Millie may never be able to tell Sergeant Spencer that he’s her father, because of the magic affecting him, Millie panics. When she discovers that the policeman may be forced to cut all ties with the paranormal community if the spell isn’t reversed, she embarks on a hazardous journey to save her future relationship with the man she yearns to call Dad.

With several mysteries to get to the bottom of, and a father to save, Millie Thorn needs be both brave and intuitive if her life is ever going to be relatively normal again.

With all the ingredients required for magic, mystery, humour and mayhem – ‘Spells And Cells’ is the Third book in the Spellbinder Bay Cozy Mystery Series.  (Amazon)

That is until things come to a head in his professional and personal lives and things threaten to careen out of control.
As a shifter, Aric has certain responsibilities in the wolf hierarchy. His father makes that clear when he brings a bigwig for a visit and expects Aric to entertain him. Unfortunately for Aric, his daughter Sami is out of school for the day so he has to take her along for the ride.
Sami is special, of course. She’s more than a wolf thanks to her mother’s mage background. That power is put on display when a member of the wolf council goes missing and Sami is expected to track him through the woods.
Instead of finding a living wolf, though, Aric finds a dead one … and it’s not the one he’s looking for. What follows is a race against the clock to find a murderer and keep his family safe.
Is Aric up to the task? He’s the top wolf on the job, and he’s about to find out.

Since taking the job of an on-site apartment manager, single-mom Cambria Clyne’s life has been one wild ride. Streaking residents, a corpse in the dumpster, rogue parrots—she has seen it all. Or so she thinks.

When the manager of the apartment building next door, Violet Pumpkin, goes missing, Cambria steps in to help run the property and aid in the investigation. The problem is, the more Cambria digs, the more she discovers Violet had been anything but honest in her dealings and there are more suspects than Cambria has fingers. The shady pizza delivery guy, the stressed property owners, the drunken rooftop walker, the mysterious Clint Eastwood look-alike lurking around, or one of the angry residents who received rental increases the day before Violet vanished. Of course, there’s still the business of doing her own job, parenting an outspoken three-year-old, and choosing between the two men in her life. Cambria is in over her head—not that that’s ever stopped her before!

Will Cambria find Violet before it’s too late, or will she be the next apartment manager to go missing?
