Letters to the Editor by [Garrison, Paul Michael]

Editor Nathanael Carver has made a career out of exposing corruption and publishing people’s dirty secrets. From his hate mail, it seems one of his high-profile enemies wants revenge. But the person with murder in mind may be someone closer to home.

Carver enlists the help of Kate Baxter, a police detective with problems of her own: disapproving parents, sexist coworkers, and a smoking habit she can’t seem to kick. The support of her tribe and ample time at the gun range help to keep her sane. As her personal life and the case bleed together, Kate gains insight into Carver’s world, keeping her eye on those closest to him. Kate is on the cusp of progress when Carver, against her advice, drops the case—only to be viciously attacked. Now it’s Kate’s turn to drag everyone’s dirty secrets into the light, but not before at least one body hits the floor.(Amazon)

Himalayan Hazard (Pet Whisperer P.I. Book 8) by [Fitz, Molly, Bay, Blueberry]

Ever feel like your entire world has been turned on its head? That’s how I’ve felt ever since the gang and I found out that Nan has been keeping major family secrets stashed neatly away in the attic.

What’s worse, we still don’t know exactly what happened, and I have so many follow-up questions, like is she still the same woman I always assumed she was? And can I ever fully trust her again?

With Nan unable to give me a straight answer, I invite my parents to join me for a cross-country train trip so that we can all discover the truth, once and for all.

Octo-Cat hitches a ride with us, too, and it’s a good thing he does, because it isn’t long before a dead body joins us in the dining car. Now we have two mysteries to solve, and fast—our lives and legacy depend on it.  (Amazon)

Of Spirits and Superstition: Sister Witches of Raven Falls Cozy Mystery Series, Book 4 by [Halliwell, Nyx]I see dead people…but I’m in big trouble when I become a ghost myself.

I’m Winter Whitethorne, psychic medium, and I find it easier to get along with the dead than the living. I’ve perfected invisibility spells so I can ‘ghost’ humans I don’t particularly like. Haunted by spirits who refuse to cross over, I struggle to act “normal” and not give into the bad luck that clings to me as deftly as my ghostly hitchhikers.

When my boyfriend, Ronan, is attacked three days before Yule, leaving him in a magickal coma, I accidentally discover my destiny is far bigger than talking to dead people. Not only can I reach across the veil and communicate with them, I have the ability to raise them and change the very fabric of the world. There’s no invisibility spell that’s going to solve that problem.

With my ghost cat familiar, Shade, as well as Persephone, a snarky new spirit guide who has a thing for ’70s sitcoms, I embark on a journey to return Ronan’s spirit to his body and stop a magickal disaster prophesied to take place on Yule.

But can I save my one true love and fix magick when I, too, end up a ghost?

Assignment in Amsterdam: A Kate Benedict Paranormal Mystery (The Kate Benedict Series Book 5) by [Bedford, Carrie]SHE CAN SEE WHO’S GOING TO DIE –

It looks like a plum job for architect Kate Benedict—she’s been sent to Amsterdam to repurpose an ancient mansion, happily assigned to work with an old friend. Should have been a lark! But it’s a catastrophe—her old friend’s going to die.

And so is the caretaker. And the owner. Not to mention the owner’s personal assistant.

Kate’s the only one who knows. Because she has a secret.

She’s just a normal Londoner except for one tiny thing—she sees auras that predict death. This is a first, though— never has she seen so many in such a small area. Based on past experience, everyone in the house—or even attached to it—is about to die.

(Probably Kate included, but she wouldn’t know—the auras don’t show in mirrors.)

The place could be haunted, of course. Author Bedford will give you goosebumps as voices speak in empty rooms, hidden passageways turn up, heavy objects fall, and always, always, Kate feels as if she’s being watched.

She’s as creeped out as the reader, but Kate knows perfectly well it isn’t haunted—it conceals something. A crime perhaps. Certainly a secret—a valuable object perhaps… a cache of dead bodies. Or maybe… something she can’t even imagine. Someone will kill and kill and kill again to keep the secret.

Have tea handy! It’s a shivery ride to the smashing solution.

Who will like it? Almost everyone who loves traditional British mysteries, from Agatha Christie, right through Tana French. American cozy readers will love her too, especially those who delight in a slight hint of the paranormal, like Barbara Michaels and her colleague Carolyn Hart (in her Bailey Ruth series.)  (Amazon)

Leave No Stone: A Faith McClellan Novel by [Walker, LynDee]A MISSING WOMAN.




“Just when you think you know what’s going to happen, she plunges you down another dark and deliciously creepy path.” —Lisa Regan, USA Today bestselling author of Her Silent Cry


Shortly after a young mother mysteriously disappears, a serial killer begins leaving corpses and clues across the Texas Hill Country. Texas Ranger Faith McClellan and her mentor, veteran Ranger Archie Baxter, are assigned to the case.

This killer is more clever—and sadistic—than any they’ve ever encountered, and the list of seemingly unrelated female victims is growing by the day—an attorney, a pastor, a stay-at-home mom. The murders feature similar injuries, with a cryptic message carved into each corpse. But these gruesome calling cards provide more questions than answers, and with the best coroner in the state unable to identify the murder weapon, investigators are flying blind.

With the young mother still missing and a mounting body count, it’s up to Faith and Archie to solve the mystery. Before the killer strikes again…


“LynDee Walker weaves a tight, wonderfully-complex plot… and Texas Ranger Faith McClellan is a capable, shining heroine you’ll love to root for.” —Jeff Carson, nationally bestselling author of the David Wolf series


LynDee Walker, acclaimed author of the NICHELLE CLARKE CRIME THRILLERS, offers a pulse-pounding second installment to her new and wildly popular FAITH MCCLELLAN series.  (Amazon)
