Harvey Marmion and Joe Keedy are dispatched from Scotland Yard to investigate, and learn that she seems to have been poisoned. But who is this woman?

THE COUNTRY INN MYSTERY an absolutely gripping whodunit full of twists by [MARTIN, FAITH]Discover a new series of whodunits by million-selling author Faith Martin. These charming mysteries will have you scratching your head to work out who the murderer is.

Meet Jenny Starling: travelling cook and reluctant amateur detective. 


Jenny Starling is working at The Spindlewood Inn for the weekend. It’s hosting a Regency Extravaganza, involving historical costume, amateur dramatics and food.

Leading actress of the amateur dramatic society and reputed man-eater Rachel Norman portrays a doomed noblewoman. But when she turns up actually drowned in the pond, there’s suddenly a murder to investigate.

There’s been plenty of trouble at the idyllic country inn. The performers weren’t a happy troupe, and Jenny discovers a simmering romantic tension.

Who wanted Rachel dead and why? Jenny Starling is going to need all her wits to crack this complex case.

This is the seventh in a series of enjoyable murder mysteries with a great cast of characters and baffling crimes which will keep you in suspense to the final page.

Perfect for fans of classic whodunits by authors like Agatha Christie, LJ Ross, TE Kinsey, and J.R. Ellis.

In her late twenties, Jenny Starling is an impressive woman. Physically, she stands at 6ft 1inch, and has shoulder-length black hair and blue eyes. Curvaceous and sexy, she’s a modern single woman, living the lifestyle that suits her – that of a travelling cook. Her famous (and now very rich) father, is a ‘celebrity’ cook, divorced from Jenny’s mother. Jenny drives a disreputable cherry-red van, and is happy travelling the country catering events and cooking great food. She is on a one-woman crusade to bring back ‘real’ food. And definitely doesn’t like having to divert her attention from achieving the perfect Dundee cake or creating a new sauce recipe by having to solve a murder. She finds crime very distracting, especially when there is chocolate to temper or pike to poach. Nevertheless, she is very good at reading people, and with a quick and agile brain, becomes very good at unmasking killers. And her always-undaunted sense of humour goes a long way in keeping her sane when all around her people are dropping like flies.

FAITH MARTIN is the best-selling author of the DETECTIVE HILLARY GREENE mysteries, which have sold over 1 million copies globally in just over a year.

HInside the Executive's Pocket (A Ghosts of Landover Mystery Book 5) by [Faire, Etta]istory books say Landover’s Dead Forest got its name because almost nothing grows there.

Locals know the truth.

The fifth book in the paranormal series, the Ghosts of Landover Mysteries. 

Most people in Landover have heard the legend of the Dead Forest. It’s why no one wants much to do with the stretch of trees that separates Landover County from the rest of civilization.

People who go into the Dead Forest generally do not come out. Not the same, they don’t.

And rumor has it, paranormal massacres have happened there, twice. Once in the 1800s to a group of ranchers and again in 1978 to a group of young executives just outside the drive-in, the reason the drive-in closed. Just like with the ranchers, the executives’ mutilated bodies were found along the perimeter of the Dead Forest, with one person making it out alive to tell the tale.

It’s the exact spot where Shelby’s missing fiancé’s wallet was found. It’s also where old George passed out. And now, it’s the spot where Carly picks up her newest client, one of the victims of the drive-in incident.

Through channeling, Carly is taken straight to the night in 1978 to relive the story behind the Dead Forest incident and figure out the mystery. But while channeling memories from the 1970s, Carly gets more than just a dose of Disco Fever. She finds clues to Bobby’s missing-person’s case. And it changes everything.  (Amazon)

But her holiday plans are interrupted when Jessica Nelson, crime reporter at the Pecan Springs Enterprise, shows up with a hard-to-believe story about a serial killer who is targeting the terminally ill.

But Jessica’s story turns out to be true, and Ruby has to use her psychic ability to discover the killer’s identity before he chooses another victim. When Detective Ethan Connors gets involved in the mystery, and when Jessica herself is threatened, Ruby’s psychic abilities are put to the test in ways she could never have predicted. And at the same time, she finds herself falling in love with a detective who seems to know her better than she knows herself.

Ruby Wilcox has a rare gift for seeing things that others can’t, but it doesn’t guarantee that she knows her own heart. Can she honor her psychic talents and find powers within herself that she never imagined, while she builds a life of desire and love?  (Amazon)
