The Marketville Mystery Series: Books 1-3 (A Marketville Mystery) by [Judy Penz Sheluk]The first three books in the bestselling Marketville Mystery series, now available in one collection.

Calamity (Callie) Barnstable never dreamed that one day she’d be solving cold cases in the small town of Marketville, but that’s exactly where life has led her. Turns out, she’s got a flair for digging up the truth—even when the truth wants to remain firmly in the past.

Skeletons in the Attic (Book 1): Calamity (Callie) Barnstable isn’t surprised to learn she’s the sole beneficiary of her late father’s estate, though she is shocked to discover she has inherited a house in the town of Marketville with one condition: she must move to Marketville, live in the house, and solve her mother’s murder.

Callie’s not keen on dredging up a thirty-year-old mystery, but if she doesn’t do it, there’s a scheming psychic named Misty Rivers who hopes to expose the Barnstable family secrets herself. Determined to thwart Misty and fulfill her father’s wishes, Callie accepts the challenge. But is she ready to face the skeletons hidden in the attic?

Past & Present (Book 2): It’s been thirteen months since Callie inherited the house in Marketville. She solves the mystery, but what next? Unemployment? Another nine-to-five job in Toronto?

She decides to set down roots in Marketville, take the skills and knowledge she acquired over the past year, and start her own business: Past & Present Investigations. It’s not long before she gets her first client: a woman who wants to find out everything she can about her grandmother, Anneliese Prei, and how she came to a “bad end” in 1956. It sounds like a perfect first assignment. Except for one thing: Anneliese’s past winds its way into Callie’s present, and not in a manner anyone—least of all Callie—could have predicted.

A Fool’s Journey (Book 3): In March 2000, twenty-year-old Brandon Colbeck left home to find himself on a self-proclaimed “fool’s journey.” No one—not friends or family—have seen or heard from him since, until a phone call from a man claiming to be Brandon brings the case back to the forefront. Calamity (Callie) Barnstable and her team at Past & Present Investigations have been hired to find out what happened to Brandon and where he might be. As Callie follows a trail of buried secrets and decades-old deceptions only one thing is certain: whatever the outcome, there is no such thing as closure.  (Amazon)

Momentary Paws (Kitten Witch Cozy Mystery Series Book 2) by [Corrine Winters]

Another murder in town is just clawful!

It’s a purr-fectly good day for a murder. Or at least someone seems to think so in the tiny town of Couchemar, Louisiana. That’s the story that Ember McNair hears one morning from her bat shifter BFF.

Apparently Natalie Gordon, the local divorcee with the looks to kill done went and got herself killed. The suspect list is pretty large – Natalie had managed to attract the eyes of nearly every male in town. Did she turn down too many dates? Or did another woman get jealous and take out her competition?

Gossip points to so many people in town. There’s Darren who kept following Natalie around asking her out even though she kept saying no. There’s her ex-husband who she caught cheating and wanted her back even though she kept saying no. There’s the deputy who she was seeing on the side and wanted something more but she kept on saying no.

She kept saying no. Until someone said…yes. To her murder.

It’s up to Ember, her ghost from another mother (ancestrally speaking), and her cat familiar Kali to find the real killer fast before they strike again. But they better be careful. Because Sheriff Cedric, the cute wolf shifter sheriff is watching Ember. And he’s going to use those big, muscular forearms to remove Ember from the scene if he catches her.

Will she cozy up to the truth, or could the lady killer get her too?
