Belle of the Ball (An Oracle Bay Novel Book 3) by [Cissell, Amy]Welcome to Oracle Bay, the town where the local psychics were already expecting you!

Oracle Bay has always attracted the preternaturally clairvoyant. When anyone with seers’ blood in their veins steps foot in this quaint coastal town, their powers awaken. They receive a visit from the Psychics Union and shenanigans ensue.

Drew Hardy, the local crystal ball reader, is recovering from the latest apocalypse by making eyes at his ex-boyfriend, Bill; he’s hoping a rekindled romance is in his future. Instead, a pair of mischievous kittens arrive in the middle of the night and usher in post-holiday chaos. When a series of crimes—both petty and serious—start plaguing Oracle Bay, Drew channels his favorite fictional detectives, dons his deerstalker, and sets out to discover who is driving up the crime rate in this sleepy oceanside village.

Is it Dio—the attractive playboy and Drew’s rebound fling—who’s back in town after three years’ absence? Or Martha, who always knows what’s going on before anyone else? Or, is it Ryan, who believes the town’s psychics bring a bad element into town?

With their powers on the fritz and an unusual party atmosphere permeating the town, the psychics are having a difficult time getting to the bottom of it. Will Drew figure out who’s to blame before anyone else is hurt? And will Bill finally let go of past hurts and let himself have a happily ever after?

Belle of the Ball is a paranormal mm romance and cozy mystery. There’s no sex or violence on the page.  (Amazon)

Bunburry - Episode 1-3: A Cosy Mystery Compilation by [Marchmont, Helena]Miss Marple meets Oscar Wilde in this new series of cosy mysteries set in the picturesque Cotswolds village of Bunburry. Here, fudge-making and quaffing real ale in the local pub are matched by an undercurrent of passion, jealousy, hatred and murder – laced with a welcome dose of humour.

This compilation contains episodes 1-3.


Alfie McAlister has retreated from London to the peace and quiet of the country to recover from a personal tragedy. But an accidental death – which may have been no accident – reveals that the heart of England is far from the tranquil backwater he imagined. After arriving in Bunburry, he is co-opted as an amateur detective by Liz and Marge, two elderly ladies who were best friends with Alfie’s late Aunt Augusta. And it is not long before their investigations take an even more dramatic turn …


Alfie discovers that he has not only inherited a cottage from his late Aunt Augusta but also a 1950s Jaguar. He is dismayed: for reasons of his own, he no longer drives. Aunt Augusta’s best friends, Liz and Marge, persuade him to get behind the wheel again – but that’s just the start of his Troubles …


When a local beef farmer is found dead, Betty Thorndike – vegetarian and Bunburry’s only Green Party member – is in the frame. Despite what everyone thinks, Betty is absolutely not Alfie McAlister’s girlfriend. But Alfie knows what it’s like to be wrongly accused, and enlists the help of his fellow amateur detectives, Liz and Marge, to find out who’s responsible. There’s just one problem about a farm-based investigation – Alfie’s scared of cows …

Evil Elves (Cozy Corgi Mysteries Book 15) by [Abbott, Mildred]Christmas ushers in snowstorms, fruitcake, and a horde of Santa’s naughty elves…

No place is more perfect for the winter holidays than the charming mountain town of Estes Park. As the Cozy Corgi Bookshop and Bakery glistens with lights and garlands, Winifred Page allows the seasonal merriment to brush away all worry and fear. Watson, her grumpy corgi, is about as far from stressed as possible—after all, with the holiday baking, delectable crumbs are everywhere.

Estes Park’s new Christmas store is chosen to receive exclusive rights to sell a much-coveted collection of tiny elf figurines, but not everyone is thrilled, especially not the owner of the original Christmas shop. Bickering between local merchants is nothing new and doesn’t dampen the Christmas cheer or holiday glee. However, when nightly break-ins begin to occur, Santa himself is caught in the act, Fred and Watson are pulled away from the bookshop to investigate the holiday mayhem.

Unfortunately, while Santa keeps a list of nice and naughty children, he’s allowed his elves to have free rein, and there’s nothing nice about them…

(This culinary cozy mystery includes a recipe for honestly delicious fruitcake.)  (Amazon)
