A Purrfect Alibi: A pawsitively gripping cozy mystery (The Oyster Cove Guesthouse Book 3) by [Dobbs, Leighann]I am in book love with this series!’ Goodreads Reviewer, 5 stars

Fortune tellers and mediums have descended on the Oyster Cove Guesthouse, determined to finally solve the mystery of local seafarer Jedediah Biddeford’s murder 300 years ago. New owner Josie Waters has suddenly got bigger problems than burning the breakfasts: she’s up to her elbows in tarot cards and tea leaves…

When one of the mediums is found dead with an ominous note nearby, everything points to Jedediah’s ghost being the culprit. Suddenly, Josie finds that the fate of her guesthouse depends on not one murder but two, and she’s not going to rely on a crystal ball for answers. Despite the fact that cookbooks and candlesticks keep mysteriously falling off tables, Josie is sure there’s no such thing as ghosts. But guesthouse cats Nero and Marlowe know better…

Aided by her mom and eccentric family friend Millie, Josie sets out to prove the identity of the killer without summoning any spirits. Luckily Nero and Marlowe know the truth about ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night and they are on the case! Can they make Josie realize she is scratching up the wrong tree before the killer strikes again?

From the bestselling author of the USA Today bestselling Mystic Notch series, purrfect for fans of Adele Abbott, cat lovers and anybody who loves to curl up with a page-turning cozy mystery.

Noah Clue is at a dead end, having just been fired by his latest client, when his cousin shows up with an offer to help salvage his career. But what happens when an unobservant private investigator and a fastidious legal secretary team up? They turn Seattle upside down!

Join Noah and Dee as they untangle four mind-twisting cases, brimming with hot coffee and fresh satire.

Red Herrings and Referrals

Coming off an unbroken chain of failed cases, Noah is surprised when he’s hired by a high-powered executive to investigate a string of suspicious truck hijackings. When the case takes a deadly turn, tempers begin to flare. The clock is ticking as Noah and Dee track down a desperate killer – if they don’t strangle each other first.

It Reminds Me Of A Game

While searching for a new office, Noah and Dee discover the body of an infamous con artist in a pool of blood. With a high-stakes wager with Captain Gregg Warren in the balance, and no shortage of suspects, the duo will have to pull their most daring trick yet. Dee hasn’t played all of her cards just yet…but one just might get someone killed.

How To Get Murdered In Three Easy Steps

A motivational speaker drops dead in a green room, and Noah is hired by the conference director at a premium to find the cause. But why hire a P.I. before the body’s even cold? Just how much crazy can one seminar hold? And what happens when burritos seek revenge? Accompanied by his newly minted secretary and an annoyingly quiet Dee, Noah goes on the hunt for answers.

Murder in G Minor

While attending a concert on a double date, Noah is witness to the death of a music professor. The police detective snaps up a suspect, a colleague of the victim, in no time, but Noah isn’t convinced of her guilt. He’ll have to fight through red tape and campus politics to make the clues harmonize and prove the professor’s innocence. What a time for Dee and Bryan to take their vacations!  (Amazon)

Doctor Rowan Dupont knows a serial killer is coming for her. Julian Addington has been waiting. Watching. And it’s only a matter of time before he strikes. But what Julian doesn’t know is that Rowan is ready for him. And more than anything she wants answers. How well did the depraved killer actually know her mother? And how many lies have been spun in the years since she took her own life?

Working alongside her childhood friend Police Chief Billy Brannigan, Rowan is determined to get to the bottom of her mother’s puzzling suicide once and for all—even if it means exposing an unsettling past. It certainly seems like her family’s Victorian funeral home has borne witness to more than one dark secret, but when a recent double homicide leads to an even grislier discovery, separating the truth from the lies might be the last thing Rowan does.  (Amazon)

It turns out Andrew Ames kept more than tax records. He was the guardian of a black book filled with the secrets of nearly every resident in Salty Springs, and now it’s missing. That means double duty for me—recovering the book and catching a killer. Fortunately, I’m never without help. In this case, my crotchety landlady, a maddening ex-FBI agent, my lucky pig, Gumbo, and my boss and best friend, Regina, who also provides me with a steady stream of new products to test.
