New Releases For The Week Of August 14th, 2022–Part 2

When Click and Scatter are hired for a divorce case, they wonder why their services are needed when they’re supernatural detectives. Since the case involves a self-proclaimed wizard, perhaps there are unnatural forces at work to break up the couple. But a dead spouse turns this case into a homicide and the crew aren’t sure what they’re up against.

Certain vanishings within the city remind Click of her sister’s disappearance years ago when she was changed into an evil witch. Are the same events happening again, only on a larger scale? (Amazon)

A Mother’s Visit, A Brutal Killer. And a Long Time Held Secret…The Teapot Tempest Mystery: A Tansy & Hank Pet Psychic Cozy Mystery
Tansy has an eerie feeling that things could go wrong when her mother unexpectedly shows up in town to visit her own close friend who runs a cafe and museum.

“The store door flies open with a gust of wind. We whip our heads around, watching as a customer loses her grip on the door. It bangs against the wall. Thankfully, the glass remains intact. At my feet, I hear Hank emit a low growl. Swallowing hard, I know that he never growls. Not even at Nathan. The woman pulls her hood off, meeting my eyes. Oh crap, it’s my mother.

“What are you doing here?”

Eden’s eyes raise. It’s not common for me to greet our customers with a bitter tone.

“Can’t a mom visit her daughter?”

She is determined to stay cool and strong…and survive the visit from her mother. But then, the friend ends up murdered, and Tansy’s mother becomes the initial suspect. Now Tansy finds herself in a difficult situation and must take action fast.

Will she have enough time to discover the real killer’s plans?

Miranda Rose Barker masterfully writes a story filled with humor and addictive suspense inside The Teapot Tempest Mystery:A Tansy & Hank Pet Psychic Cozy Mystery. (Amazon)

Now Ingrid and her friends are desperate to find out what happened to the Thors. Strange folk haunt the northern roads. The three seek an old ally, but find instead another murder, one with ties to Villmark itself.
And if Ingrid doesn’t find the killer first, all of Villmark stands in jeopardy. (Amazon)

Five friends went into the woods. Only four came back.

If something ails you, Charlie Kingsley likely has a tea to fix it.

So, when Charlie witnesses a young woman faint on the side of the road, she has no choice but to offer her services. (Along with a cup of her famous tea, of course.)

In no time at all, the young woman is back to normal, which is good news, as she’s about to go camping with her friends.

Charlie thinks that will be the last of it … so imagine her surprise when she gets a phone call that one of the friends is missing.

Is the friend simply lost? Or did something more disturbing happen?

Luckily, Charlie is not only on the case, but fueled with tea, as this will prove to be one of her most puzzling crimes to date.

Meet Charlie. Better known as “Aunt Charlie” from the award-winning Secrets of Redemption series. She’s back, making teas and solving cases in this funny, twisty, cozy mystery series set in the 1990s in Redemption, Wisconsin.

Set in the tiny hamlet of St. Ives, Ontario, a murder mystery book club discovers they have a taste and talent for solving unsolved crimes. Led by the brilliant and eccentric Elliot Marks, five active retirees and two young reporters unearth secrets that certain residents of the cosy village would prefer remained buried. (Amazon)
