Tigers Love Bubble Baths & Obsession Perfume (who knew!) by [Savarese, Mary K.]Angie Pantera thought she had the perfect life: a loving, devoted husband of twenty-five years, two wonderful, grown children, and an impending wedding anniversary celebration with friends and family. But the celebration is ruined by a cheating husband, and Angie’s life devolves into a living nightmare—until serendipity brings her to Birdsong, Maine, as recreation director at the Home of the Little Flower.

A church-run nursing home that is slowly wasting away with its nonagenarian inhabitants, the Home could use a miracle . . . or maybe a facsimile of one. A bit of creative advertising prompts Angie to buy a bouquet of “magical” dandelions, and in a flash of inspiration, she knows exactly how to bring light to these dark days. After all, no one is ever too old for wishes.

But then people start dying, and the only thing they have in common is Angie. Harangued by a distrustful elder and under suspicion by the police, Angie must fight to clear her good name as she seeks out the truth: Is this a miracle or murder?  (Amazon)

Book clubs from all over have descended on Crystal Cove to celebrate the library’s Book Club Bonanza week, and Jenna Hart has packed the Cookbook Nook with juicy reads and tasty cookbooks. But she’s most excited about spending an evening with the Mystery Mavens and their moveable feast, when they will go from house to house to share different culinary treats and discuss the whodunit they’re all reading. It’s all good food and fun for the savvy armchair detectives, until one of the members of the group is found murdered at the last stop on the tour.

As if that weren’t enough to spoil her appetite, Jenna discovers that all the evidence points to her friend Pepper as being the guilty party. And with Pepper’s chief-of-police daughter too close to the case to be impartial, Jenna knows she’ll have to step in to help clear her friend’s name before a bitter injustice sends her to jail. Sifting through the clues, Jenna unearths any number of possible culprits, but she’ll have to cook up a new way to catch the killer before Pepper’s goose is cooked . . .

Includes tasty sweet and savory recipes!

Toxic Apple Turnovers (MURDER IN THE MIX Book 13) by [Moore, Addison]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. 

Fall is in the air, the weather is crisp, the leaves are golden and the atmosphere is ripe for murder. It’s the first catering event of the season and I’m blindsided by what transpires at the outlandish party. Not only that, but I stumble upon the one person I would never want to see facedown in a flower bed. And to top it all off, something wicked has rolled into Honey Hollow and every dead spirit I have ever encountered is back to help me fight it.

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)

The Wyvern's Defender Dire Wolf: A Cozy Paranormal Romantic Mystery (Dial-A-Defender Book 1) by [Summerfield, Alice]

A single word scribbled on a scrap of paper by an unsteady hand chilled the blood in her veins. It read simply: Run!

Called ‘barely a dragon’ all her life, Helena Tarleton hadn’t thought herself valuable enough for anyone to try to Sever her from her soul mate, whoever and wherever he was. She couldn’t even shift! Bookish and naive, Helena is ill-suited for life on the run, but run she does. Helena can’t outrun, outsmart, or outfight her dragon relatives, but she’s willing to die trying.

After a rough childhood, dire wolf shifter and military veteran Rudolf Shaw has found family – and a substitute pack – in working for supernatural protection agency, Dial-A-Defender. Dolf doesn’t want – or need – anything more, until he responds to a break in and finds Helena, a woman in obvious need of a place to lie low. Taking the gentle woman in and giving her his protection, despite her secrets (and the insistent howl of his better sense) is a no-brainer.

But when a pack of hellhounds comes sniffing around, his neighbor is murdered, and the biggest dragon that Dolf has ever seen tries to fry him, Dolf begins to suspect that he may have bitten off more than he can chew. A dire wolf has no hope of defeating an entire pack of hellhounds, much less an old dragon, but for Helena’s sake, Dolf has to try. Because the thing is, she just might be his soul’s mate.

The Wyvern’s Defender Dire Wolf is a steamy, full length novel chock-full of humor, cozy mystery, action, and heartwarming romance. If you love reading about mysterious murders, bookish but brave heroines, or the thoroughly confounded heroes that fall in love with them almost entirely against their will, don’t miss this exciting read!
