The Labours of Mrs Stella Ryman: Further Fairmount Manor Mysteries (The Fairmount Manor Mysteries Book 2) by [Anastasiou, Mel]When the machineries of institution fail to protect Fairmount Manor, octogenarian amateur sleuth Mrs Stella Ryman rolls up her fleece jacket sleeves to protect Fairmount from a thief, investigate a gun-toting resident, set right a mishandled investigation of a man’s death, pursue spectres and footpads walking at midnight, and discover Thelma Hu’s long-lost fortune. No good deed goes unpunished, though, and Stella will face struggles, mysteries, and sacrifices that hit her where she lives.

Mrs Stella Ryman is a fish out of water, a stranger in a strange land — an amateur sleuth, trapped in a down-at-heel care home. You’d be cranky, too.

Praise for Stella Ryman and the Fairmount Manor Mysteries
“Delightfully different, gently humorous exploration of sleuthing with a touch of senior citizen fogginess and intrepid zeal for the quest. Stella’s life is as motivated by her passion as Sherlock Holmes’s ever was and her mental health as dependent on keeping some game afoot. Author Anastasiou paints a respectfully sympathetic picture of the challenges of old folks in a seniors’ home without pulling her punches or passing up a good chuckle by creating a character with enough spunk to carry the reader safely through. I’m not a lover of mysteries as a rule. But I do like to see genuinely novel looks at the human experience through the lens of established genres.” – Lynda Williams, Reality-Skimming Press (5-star review on Goodreads)

“This book is a treat. Compassion, intelligence, and wit prevail in a home that’s essentially ‘heaven’s waiting room’.” – Kathy Tyers, author of the Firebird Trilogy and Star Wars: Balance Point“Far from simply being Christie-esque, Anastasiou’s protagonist is not only funny but finds the funny in a warehouse of the death expectant.” – Daniel C Goodwin

“An excellent read, full of colorful characters. Stella Ryman, as a character, is quintessentially heroic — in the classic sense.” – Literary Titan

“I LOVE STELLA. I met Stella Ryman a few years ago by way of a series of novellas published in PULP Literature—a fabulous quarterly journal of genre busting fiction. It’s a great joy to see these stories gathered between the covers of this Fairmount Manor Mysteries collection. It’s now so easy to share the love! Stella is not an outrageous genius (Sherlock Holmes) nor a well-connected socialite (Phryne Fisher) nor a caricature British spinster (Miss Marple). She’s your sometimes addled and always endearing great aunt—the one you want over for tea because she’s kind and curious and has great stories to tell. Mel Anastasiou has crafted a character to love, nestled in the mystery novel equivalent of comfort food. Enjoy!” – Sandra Vander Schaaf, author of The Passionate Embrace: Faith, Flesh, and Tango.

“Stella Ryman is my new hero! I love the way the very observant author has woven dementia and lucidity and humour together.” – Susan Lefeaux

“I fell in love with Stella reading her stories in Pulp Literature magazine. This feisty lady who changes her mind from being ready to die to being a nursing home sleuth is so human. She wants to help people, and has a passion for right and wrong. Her frail old body and mind occasionally fail her, but she uses her past experience as a teacher librarian to keep herself on track, standing up to bullies of all kinds. She is delightfully flawed and delightfully sweet, and I look forward to more of her stories.” – Krista Wallace (Goodreads review)  (Amazon)

Sick Puppy (Maggie #2): A What Doesn't Kill You Romantic Mystery (A What Doesn't Kill You World) by [Hutchins, Pamela Fagan]Murder-by-fire. A catfishing squatter. Will Maggie get her life back before the killer claims the one thing she has left to lose?

“Hutchins’ Maggie is an irresistible train wreck—you can’t help but turn the page to see what trouble she’ll get herself into next.” Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon Bestselling Author of My Sister’s Grave

Junker and former alt-country rocker Maggie Killian tucks tail back to Texas with Louise, the mutt her bull-riding ex foisted on her in Wyoming after he gave another woman his heart. Maggie runs straight to Gary Fuller—her long time best friend-with-benefits and the biggest Texas country music star since George Strait—but arrives too late to save him from dying in a fire. She just wants to lick her wounds in her own bed with nothing save a bottle for comfort, but Maggie’s short term renter refuses to budge from her home. Soon her small town sanctuary is overrun with Nashville bigwigs, Gary’s trailer park family, and grief-crazed fans feeding the fires of media speculation about the bodies in her wake.

With Maggie barely functional enough to fight back and law enforcement hell bent on scapegoating her, she begins to suspect Gary’s death wasn’t an isolated incident. To save her livelihood and sanity, she’s gotta woman-up before everything and everyone she loves goes up in flames, too.

Sick Puppy is the second standalone book in a trilogy featuring sharp-tongued protagonist Maggie Killian from the addictive What Doesn’t Kill You romantic mystery series.

Perilous Seas (A Rowan Gray Mystery Book 8) by [Hart, Lily Harper]Her father may be back in her life but things are hardly smooth sailing for Rowan Gray.
He faked his death to get away from a group of people investigating psychic abilities – a group he is convinced is still out to get him – and he’s positive the group want his daughter for the same nefarious reasons.
Rowan is simply happy to have him in her life. She gets to spend time with him and her uncle and plot for a future they might never have.
All that’s thrown into turmoil when The Bounding Storm, the cruise ship where Rowan works, stumbles across a family that’s been lost at sea for weeks. Only some of them are on the rescue ship her boyfriend Quinn Davenport brings back, though. The rest are missing and lost.
What happened to the other family members? That’s the question on everybody’s lips as the media descends. The family at the center of the rescue is rich, essentially American royalty … and the horror of what they went through makes for a terrible tale.
The problem is … the story doesn’t hold water.
When a hand belonging to one of the deceased washes up on the beach, miles away from where the family went missing, things start to fall apart … and fast.
It’s up to Rowan and Quinn to discover the truth while working on their own investigation into a group of people that may well mean to do Rowan harm.
It makes for a busy – and dangerous – few days. All they have to do is survive to find the answers they seek.
That’s easier said than done.  (Amazon)

The A List (Ali Reynolds Series Book 14) by [Jance, J.A.]In the next “devilish page-turner” (People) from New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance, Ali Reynolds learns that no good deed goes unpunished.

More than ten years after the abrupt end of her high-profile broadcasting career, Ali Reynolds has made a good life for herself in her hometown of Sedona, Arizona. She has a new house, a new husband, and a flourishing cybersecurity company called High Noon Enterprises, where her team of veritable technological wizards hunts down criminals one case at a time.

But the death of an old friend brings Ali back to the last story she ever reported: a feel-good human interest piece about a young man in need of a kidney to save his life, which quickly spiraled into a medical mismanagement scandal that landed a prestigious local doctor in prison for murder.

Years may have passed, but Dr. Edward Gilchrist has not forgotten those responsible for his downfall—certainly not Ali Reynolds, who exposed his dirty deeds to the world. Life without parole won’t stop him from getting his revenge. Tattooed on his arm are the initials of those who put him behind bars, and he won’t stop until every person on that Annihilation List is dead.

In this gripping suspense novel from the New York Times bestselling author praised for her “inimitable, take-no-prisoners style” (Kirkus Reviews), Ali Reynolds and her team race against the clock to stop this ruthless killer—before her own name is crossed out for good.  (Amazon)
