New Releases For The Week Of September 11th, 2022–Part 4

Avery Shaw wants things to go back to normal but it’s not easy when she’s the current darling of the Detroit media market. Everybody wants a piece of her, and she prefers covering the news rather than being part of it. That’s why she jumps at the chance to cover a quadruple murder on the lake, even though it’s her day off.
Avery realizes right away that the murders weren’t a crime of passion. No, this was a planned hit, and it leads her to look at the old mob faces in the county, who don’t exactly want to invite her into their homes.
When has not being wanted ever stopped Avery? Never, and that’s not changing today.
With war brewing at home thanks to some pesky ducks, a family that refuses to stay out of her business, and a new television reporter trying to be her, Avery has her hands full. That doesn’t mean she’s going to give in to defeat.
Mob hits are one thing. Hits that target children are another. Avery refuses to let the case go, even when it seems the killer has decided to target her.
Avery doesn’t lose. Winning this one might be more than she can handle, however. Not all answers are welcome, and when the truth comes out on this one, Avery might just find she would’ve been better off letting it go. (Amazon)

A FUN British village cosy/cozy mystery packed with HEART, HUMOUR, FAMILY DRAMA, and plenty of TWISTS and TURNS! The 24th book in the BESTSELLING Peridale Cafe Cozy Mystery Series.

When Julia’s full-time café return clashes with a festival, thousands of music lovers descending on the village should be precisely what she needs to kick off a new era. But the council throws a spanner in the works when her cafe is “required not to operate” due to blocked road access. The front entrance, that is, and with the festival happening right behind her café, the kernels of a plan begin to pop…

And it seems like the perfect plan to get through the hectic weekend until the lead singer of the headlining band, Electric Fury, dies before he gets a chance to perform on the main stage. Having witnessed how the victim, Jett Fury, interacted with his entourage, Julia is sure there’s more to the story than the local Detective Inspector’s “accidental” theory.

While picking up the pieces after the destructive weekend, Julia hears the beat of a different song. From the rockstar’s secretive wife to his new drummer, unscrupulous agent, and even an obsessed groupie, many have something to gain from Jett’s death. Can Julia pluck through the lies chorded around the rockstar’s life and strike the right note to uncover Jett Fury’s killer?

Editions Available: Kindle, Paperback

On the eve of the summer solstice, Angelica fears the worst for Heaven Springs. These fears are confirmed when a man is found murdered with a note on his chest. Wrong one.

Mandy can bet her third vertebrae that these cases are somehow connected. How and why? She’s not so sure, but with Angel, Charlene, and Grandma Angelica by her side, she knows nothing can go wrong.


Meanwhile, Jonathan comes back around and prevents Mandy from making the grave mistake of returning to her ex. At the same time, Colin is becoming more erratic in his attempts to woo Mandy. He says that they were meant to be, but everyone else thinks that he’s simply full of himself. Angel hates the guy, who pets him and promises to make things right eventually. No thanks!

The investigation leads them to the discovery of the victim’s friend who he wronged in the past, a regular at the local bar who got into a scuffle with the victim that very night, and a fellow warlock who wanted to pack up his things and leave Heaven Springs as soon as possible.

At the heart of it all emerges a political rival who wants nothing more than to see Emmet dead. Was he the one responsible?

Angelica doesn’t trust him. Neither does Marshall. Mandy can’t help but think there’s a little more underlying this new man’s intentions.

However, she doesn’t know what to think anymore. After cracking Samantha’s diary, she figured out that the calculations revealed a set of coordinates that directed to Emmet’s house.

Is Emmet in danger of a plot against his life and career? Mandy needs to put a stop to things before her grandmother’s right-hand man ends up with a murder case of his own. (Amazon)
