Demons are Rude (A Booker Patrick Mystery Book 1) by [Williams, Gary, Knerly, Vicky]

“When everything goes wrong for a man and he befriends a talking dog, things can’t get worse, right? Wrong. This hilarious read will prove that man’s best friend isn’t always easy to deal with. And when you throw a demon in the mix, things can get very trying. So if you need a break from the real world, pick up ‘Demons are Rude,’ settle in, and enjoy the laughs from Williams and Knerly.”
—Xander Weaver, Author of The Cyrus Cooper Series

Booker “Book” Patrick is having a rough time. His wife left, his career fell apart, and he’s been forced to move to St. Augustine, Florida, and take a low-paying job. The only place he can afford to live is a treehouse in a crusty old man’s back yard.

When Book befriends Drawbridge, a snarky, talking dog that only he can see, the twosome team up to investigate a sudden influx of quirky ghosts, called Diluteds. Diluteds are souls who never reached the afterlife, have no idea how they died, and are now confined to specific buildings: the trifecta of otherworldly odd.

When the happy-go-lucky Diluteds begin to change into fierce, defiant, even gross, supernatural entities, it’s a harbinger of things to come. All this weirdness seems to be leading to a bigger, more terrifying destiny for Book and Drawbridge: a date with a demon—and not the good kind where you have a chance to get lucky. It’s the kind of date that could lead to world annihilation.

“The writing team of Williams and Knerly exchange thrills for chills in their latest offering. Populated by a cast of characters who truly live up to the name, as well as plenty of tongue-in-cheek (or sometimes tongue-in-ear) humor, ‘Demons are Rude’ is a fun, easy foray into the paranormal. If you’re in the market for a quick and entertaining read, look no further.”
—Lisa Clark O’Neil, Author of the Southern Comfort Series  (Amazon)

Simmy Brown had hoped that her autumn would be less frantic than usual to give her a chance to enjoy her pregnancy, her upcoming nuptials, and some time looking for a new house in the Patterdale area of the Lake District. But it is not to be … When one of the lodgers at her parents’ Bed & Breakfast dies in her arms after seemingly being poisoned, she becomes embroiled in a complex investigation, headed up by her friend D I Moxon.

Pride and Prejudice in Las Vegas: A Tiffany Black Mystery (Tiffany Black Mysteries Book 19) by [Winters, A.R.]Cupcake-loving croupier Tiffany Black is transported to another era, at the urging of her friend Emily and Nanna, when she tags along to a Jane Austen convention at the Tremonte Casino.

It’s an immersion overload with required period attire and activities like cream tea, lawn bowls, and Regency dancing. But it’s not all in good fun when the conference organizers hire Tiffany to investigate the murder of Robert Darcy, a member of their Board of Directors.

What killed the real-life Mr. Darcy: pride or prejudice?

While Tiffany investigates, her thoughts are never far from Ryan and Stone. She can’t accept what Jack told her, and her belief is only strengthened when she sees a black-clad man who looks like Stone in a fateful alley…

The Golden Key by [Womack, Marian]“…Part Shirley Jackson’s stories of inner demons, part Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland…part Astrid Lindgren’s faith in children’s resilience and part ghost story.”

“Enter a mysterious world in the hands of capable women. Getting drawn into this story is easy; getting out again is trickier.”
-BookPage

1901. After the death of Queen Victoria, England heaves with the uncanny. Séances are held and the dead are called upon from darker realms.

Helena Walton-Cisneros, known for her ability to find the lost and the displaced, is hired by the elusive Lady Matthews to solve a twenty-year-old mystery: the disappearance of her three stepdaughters who vanished without a trace on the Norfolk Fens.

But the Fens are an age-old land, where folk tales and dark magic still linger. The locals speak of devilmen and catatonic children are found on the Broads. Here, Helena finds what she was sent for, as the Fenland always gives up its secrets, in the end…  (Amazon)

Croakies Monster (Enchanting Inquiries Book 7) by [Cheever, Sam]Ancient Chinese proverb says, give cat mouse and give frog fly, they’ll soothe your monsters so you won’t die.

Okay, maybe I just made that up. But I’ll try anything at this point.

Croakies is suddenly being overrun by monsters. Yeah. Monsters. And I have no clue where they’re coming from. Are they tied to something we’ve done in the past? Do they have anything to do with the strange phone calls I’ve been getting from a really prickly local author? Most importantly, how are we going to explain to the humans about the appearance of a certain giantnormous blue monster flinging car-sized cookies around? Where did all these squirrel squattin’ songbirds come from?
And, for the love of the goddess’s favorite spanks, why is there ice all over the floor?

Sigh.

The frog and the cat? Yeah, they’re really pretty useless on this one. But at least they’re living the good life thanks to my tireless efforts to feed, house, and clean up after them and their naughty friend Hobs.

Yay me.

Mega monster boogers! This magic wrangling gig is for the birds. And the frogs. And the cats. And the hobgoblins. And, apparently, for the monsters hiding at Croakies.  (Amazon)
