Two Sleuths are Better Than One: a Danger Cove Crossover Mystery (Danger Cove Mysteries Book 23) by [Ashby, Elizabeth, Jones, Gin]From USA Today bestselling authors Gin Jones & Elizabeth Ashby comes double the murder and double the sleuthing in a Danger Cove Crossover event!

The Danger Cove Lighthouse Farmers’ Market is holding a salsa contest to celebrate the tomato harvest, and market manager, Maria Dolores is thrilled by the large number of entries. But when the judge, a local sports coach, goes missing, Maria realizes she isn’t the only person looking for him. He may have information on the recent murder of a quilt collector, so appraiser Keely Fairchild has some questions for him.

Unfortunately, when the two women finally find the coach it’s too late—he’s been killed too. Maria and Keely team up, convinced that the two murders are related, even if the police disagree with their theory. The problem is that while there are plenty of suspects for the first murder—pretty much everyone who ever met the quilt collector hated him—there’s absolutely no one who had any reason to want the coach dead. And yet, not only has he been brutally murdered, but subsequent events also suggest the killer may have more victims in sight. This is definitely an instance where Two Sleuths Are Better Than One!

Silent Water (A Jagiellon Mystery Book 1) by [Adams, P.K.]It is Christmas 1519 and the royal court in Kraków is in the midst of celebrating the joyous season. Less than two years earlier, Italian noblewoman Bona Sforza arrived in Poland’s capital from Bari as King Zygmunt’s new bride. She came from Italy accompanied by a splendid entourage, including Contessa Caterina Sanseverino who oversees the ladies of the Queen’s Chamber.

Caterina is still adjusting to the life in this northern kingdom of cold winters, unfamiliar customs, and an incomprehensible language when a shocking murder rocks the court on Christmas night. It is followed by another a few days later. The victims have seemingly nothing in common. Gossip, speculation, and suspicion are rife, but the perpetrator remains elusive as the court heads into the New Year.

As the official investigation stalls, Caterina—aided by Sebastian Konarski, a junior secretary in the king’s household—sets out to find the killer. With clues beginning to point to the queen’s innermost circle, the pair are soon racing against time to stop another murder.

Silent Water is a story of power and its abuse, and the extremes to which a person may go to find redress for justice denied. Although set at the dawn of the Renaissance era, its themes carry uncanny parallels to some of the most topical social issues of the 21st century.

“This clever and suspenseful murder mystery casts a fresh and sparkling light on the world beloved by fans of The Tudors and The Borgias. P. K. Adams, author of two previous novels about the twelfth-century healer and mystic Hildegard of Bingen, masterfully brings Renaissance Poland to life without ever losing track of the human passions that drive her characters. A wonderful start to a new series.”
—C. P. Lesley, author of Song of the Siren and other novels  (Amazon)
