A baker who sees the dead. One too many suitors.
And a killer. Living in Honey Hollow can be murder.
*A laugh out loud standalone cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore* All books in the series can be read individually but are best enjoyed in order.
My name is Lottie Lemon, and I see dead pets. On occasion I see a once-upon a human, too, but mostly it’s just cute little furry beasts who have come back from the other side to warn me of their previous owners impending doom.
Mayor Nash is up for reelection and I’ve been asked to furnish the sweet treats for his campaign kickoff. So when I stumble upon a corpse at the party everything predictably goes haywire. But this isn’t just any old corpse, this is a personal attack on our family. Not to mention the fact that someone seems to be stalking Everett. Something isn’t right in Honey Hollow. It seldom is. There is only one saving grace in this chaos and it’s the fact that Nell Sawyer is back. If I have anything to say about it, she’ll be back for good—and the only way to ensure that is to let the case grow cold.
Lottie Lemon has a brand new bakery to tend to, a budding romance with perhaps one too many suitors, and she has the supernatural ability to see dead pets—which are always harbingers for ominous things to come. Throw in the occasional ghost of the human variety, a string of murders, and her insatiable thirst for justice, and you’ll have more chaos than you know what to do with.
Living in the small town of Honey Hollow can be murder. (Amazon)
Will Sarah solve another murder and save the lives of innocent people or will she become trapped in the snow and wind up frozen?
Sarah and Amanda are happily planning a girls-only week in Snow Falls while both of their husbands are out of town: an entire week to shop, laze around, bake brownies, and do girly stuff. But then a killer snowstorm arrives along with a whole lot of trouble. First, Sarah must take charge of the police station because half of the town is sick with a terrible flu, including the chief of police. Second, a dead man turns up in her coffee shop. Third, and strangest of all, three sweet and harmless old ladies claim they killed the dead man and an old Snow Falls family feud rears its ugly head. Sarah and Amanda tumble head-first into a strange case with more twists and turns than they realize.
Determined to prove the three elderly ladies are not the real killers—even though they claim to be—Sarah sets out on a troublesome path that finally leads her into the dark history of two families determined to avenge old hurts and long-ago thefts from the frontier days. Chasing down one lead after another with only Amanda at her side, Sarah begins to piece the puzzle together. Just when she is closing in on the answers, the snowstorm turns deadly, trapping her and Amanda inside the police station while the killer roams free in town. Determined not to give up and despite the storm threatening her life, Sarah must find a way to chase down the killer before three more murders happen on her watch.

Julie Chase is back with her fourth delightful Kitty Couture mystery, perfect for fans of Rita Mae Brown and Blaize Clement.
With a pet pageant around the corner and a killer unleashed, Lacy will have to collar the culprit before the claws come out.
Lacy Marie Crocker can hardly believe it’s been a year since her return home to New Orleans. There hasn’t been a dull moment since opening her pet boutique last summer, and thanks to the popularity of Lacy’s organic pet treats, and the arrival of the National Pet Pageant, Lacy desperately needs some help before she is overrun by the demand for pupcakes and crinolines.
The entire Garden District seems to be counting the minutes until opening night of the pet pageant and everything is going spectacularly until Viktor Petrov, the pageant emcee takes a spill from the balcony during dress rehearsal. All signs points to murder and homicide detective Jack Oliver sets his eyes on Eva Little, one of Lacy’s committee sisters and the only other person on the balcony at the time of the fall, as the killer. But when it comes out that Viktor was notoriously rude, the doors blow wide open with potential suspects who could’ve wanted him dead.
Lacy’s determined to find the killer and exonerate Eva, but when Lacy receives a mysterious warning―a plush kitty from Lacy’s shop with its mouth crudely stitched over―it’s clear that she’s been found first. Full with killer recipes for your pet, Cat Got Your Crown is Julie Chase’s uproarious fourth Kitty Couture mystery. (Amazon)
