A Murder Unleashed: A Spinsters' Sewing Circle Regency Cozy Mystery by [Emily Claire]

“I am not half so virtuous as you paint me. I cannot tolerate boredom.”

Miss Isabella Wycliffe is a single woman in possession of seven dogs, a biting wit, and the leadership of the Spinsters’ Sewing Circle.

It’s an excellent life, particularly for a determined spinster with a large fortune and full calendar.

But when an elderly woman is found dead in a pond, covered in bite marks that indicate she was mauled by dogs, Isabella has no choice but to set her other interests aside to investigate the mystery and clear her beloved pets’ names. After all, it’s ludicrous to imagine clumsy Apollo murdering anybody, and surely Artemis’s lively puppy spirit could not conceal a vicious nature.

Nobody else, however, seems particularly convinced of the dogs’ innocence—least of all the judgmental new parish curate, who seems determined to dislike Isabella and obstruct her at every turn. Fortunately, she has never been the kind of woman to let other people dictate her behavior—even if they do have magnificent cheekbones and Byronic good looks.

This delightful sequel to Fall From Lace is a cozy Regency murder mystery full of witty banter, enemies-to-lovers romance, and gripping twists and turns that are sure to delight fans of Jane Austen, Jayne Davis, and Lynn Messina. (Amazon)

“Marco, I’m jailed day and night with murderous thugs who can’t tell Schiller from Shakespeare. I’m desperate for intellectual stimulus—but you’ll do for now.”

TV personality Marco Ocram is the world’s only self-penned character, writing his life in real time as you read it. Marco’s celebrity mentor, Herbert Quarry, grooms him to be the Jackson Pollock of literature, teaching him to splatter words on a page without thought or revision.

Quarry’s plan backfires when imbecilic Marco begins to type his first thought-free book: it’s a murder mystery—and Herbert’s caught red-handed by the butchered body of his lover.

Now Marco must write himself into a crusade to clear his friend’s name. Typing the first words that come into his head, Marco unleashes a phantasmagorical catalogue of twists in his pursuit of justice, writing the world’s fastest-selling book to reveal the awful truth about the Herbert Quarry affair.
