Artist and spa owner Penny Brannigan has been asked to organize a formal dinner to mark the centenary of the armistice that ended World War One. After dinner, the guests adjourn to the library for a private exhibition of the Black Chair, a precious piece of Welsh literary history awarded in 1917 to poet Hedd Wyn. But to the guests’ shock, the newly restored bardic chair is missing. And then Penny discovers the rain-soaked body of a waiter.

When Penny learns that the victim was the nephew of one of her employees, she is determined to find the killer. Meanwhile, the local police search for the Black Chair. The Prince of Wales is due to open an exhibit featuring the chair in three weeks, so time is not on their side. A visit to a nursing home to consult an ex-thief convinces Penny that the theft of the Black Chair and the waiter’s murder are connected. She rushes to Dublin to consult a disagreeable antiquarian, who might know more than he lets on, and during the course of her investigation confronts a gaggle of suspicious travelers and an eccentric herbalist who seems to have something to hide. Can Penny find the chair and the culprit before she is laid to rest in the green grass of Wales?  (Amazon)

The Marvelous Ms. Medium (A Lost Souls Lane Mystery Book 4) by [Huss, Erin]My name is Zoe Lane, and I see dead people.

I thought I was getting pretty good at this whole medium gig … until today. Have you ever been kissing the man of your dreams when his dead ex-girlfriend appears?

No?

I have, and let me tell you it’s a total mood killer.

Her name is Vanessa Tobin, and she’s a journalist with a passion for truth and justice and self-help books. The last thing she remembers is investigating the disappearance of twenty-year-old Lux Piefer. She was close to solving the case. Too close.

Now we need to find Lux and catch Vanessa’s killer. Helping us is my new partner who can see glimpses of the future. You’d think this would be useful, but the thing about the future is it’s ever-changing. The more we dig, the more things change, and the more things change, the more we realize that we’re not dealing with a missing person case and a homicide. What we’ve got is a serial killer on our hands with a list of victims that is growing by the minute.

Did I mention we have twenty-four hours to figure this all out or one of us will die? Considering one out of three of us is already dead, chances are high that it will be me.

If I survive today, I’m going to need a long ghostless vacation.  (Amazon)
