New Releases For The Week Of January 22nd, 2023–Part 3

The wild west. Enchanted flowers. A new witch accused of murder…

I thought it was going to be a day like any other. Clock in for my shift in the toll booth. Hand out tickets all day. Clock out. But a cowboy snatched me up before I punched in for the day and hauled me here, to this working ranch in Montana.

I always wanted to see Big Sky Country, just didn’t figure it would happen like this…

He and his family tell me I’m a witch, and I’m supposed to work in the magical flower shop here. The thing is, I know nothing about plants and I can’t even read the spell book they’ve given me.

A murder by the barn on my first day here doesn’t make my situation any better. The blacksmith thinks I did it, and there’s going to be a hex in my face if I don’t prove my innocence. How am I going to get out of this one? (Amazon)

As soon as they meet, it’s murder.

When Jade Fitch opens a new-age shop in the picturesque market town of Hazeby-on-Wyvern, she’s hoping for a fresh start. Meanwhile, Fi Booker is trying to make a living from her floating bookshop as well as deal with her teenage son.

It’s just coincidence that they’re the only two people on the boat when local antiques dealer Freddy Stott drops dead while turning the pages of a book. Or is it?

After a grilling from the unfriendly neighbourhood policeman, Jade and Fi are left shaken. Can they prove they didn’t kill Freddy Stott? Was he even the intended victim? And can they trust each other?

Local gossip reveals a host of suspects, but with the police taking their time and hostility towards them growing in the town, Jade and Fi decide to investigate. Will that make things better, or much, much worse?

Murder for Beginners is the first book in the Booker and Fitch cozy mystery series, set in and around the English market town of Hazeby-on-Wyvern. (Amazon)

Is this the end of Crimson Cove?

Everyone is excited to attend a surprise performance by the enthralling magical scarabs. The town turns out to enjoy the show, including a bundle of annoying non-magicals. They just won’t take the hint and leave.

But that won’t stop me and my wonderful witch, Zandra, from enjoying ourselves. The partying continues through the night, resulting in the formidable Old Mother Splinter almost drowning.

The next day, everyone is shocked to learn she died at the hospital, and what appears to be a tragic accident gets serious when a lethal sleep spell is discovered in her system. And it’s spreading. If you fall asleep, you don’t wake up!

With time against us, and the sleep spell seeping through the town, I have a battle on my fluffy paws. Who wants Crimson Cove unprotected? Are the non-magicals at risk from this spell? And how will I keep my witch from going to sleep and leaving me?

Brew the coffee, prop open those eyelids, and let’s solve this mystery before the town I’ve grown to love, and the witch I can’t be without, are gone forever.


Every Witch Way but Demon is book six in the Magical Misfits Mysteries and resolves the puzzle of the stubborn magical bangle, why Sammy is being strange, and why non-magicals keep dropping by. This fun paranormal cozy whodunit is full of twists and turns, strange clues, and a sprinkling of magic.

Expect magical action, dark deeds, and Juno to be the sassiest, most determined talking cat you’ll ever meet. (Amazon)

It is 1936. Undercook Joan Hart and lady’s maid Verity Hunter are back in London after a long stay in the country. The capital is fraught and unsettled. Protests and riots are taking place regularly, fascism is on the rise and trouble in Europe is brewing, but the girls are still thrilled to be back in the Big Smoke, ready for some fun and frivolity.

That is, until an old friend of Verity’s contacts the servant sleuths, asking for help. Maidservant Theda Samuels was the only one in the house when tycoon Sir Jacob MacMullen was killed, and things are looking very black for her… unless Joan, Verity and their old ally Inspector Marks might be able to help?

A Murder in Mayfair is the fourth in the historical mystery series, Miss Hart and Miss Hunter Investigate, by bestselling crime writer Celina Grace.

Praise for Celina Grace by Amazon and Goodreads reviewers:

“Thoroughly enjoyed this read. I’ve been waiting for this story since the first of the Asharton novellas was published and I am very glad to see more of Joan and Verity. I think they are a great mystery team. Smart and active, but in a believable way. You don’t ever wonder how they could do what they do within the confines of their social roles and their “real” jobs are never thrown to the side.”

“Celina makes her characters someone you care about. I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to the next book in the series. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes mysteries, especially period mysteries.”

” I love her writing style. This book does not disappoint. A great mix of mystery, humor and wonderful characters. All in a beautiful Manor. Very enjoyable read.”

“I have read the four Asharton Manor books and enjoyed them all, but the first story that introduced Joan and Verity was my favorite and I am so glad the author wrote another story with the two of them. This time period is very interesting to me and then to throw in a couple murders to solve makes it extra interesting. I hope to read more about Joan, Verity and ( maybe Inspector Marks ?) in future books.” (Amazon)

With her newly opened antique shop taking off, Annie Archer is settling into Turtle Bay. Annie gets called away from her shop when her friend, Sheriff Adam Parker wants her to take on an extraordinary case. The neighborhood handyman, impaled to death in his home, was propped up against a ladder, thirteen written across his forehead, a broken mirror beside him, and a black cat sitting on the top rung of the ladder. The picture would have been funny if it hadn’t been so morbid. It seems her mentor is the main suspect.

Can Annie clear her friend’s name before the police pin the murder on her?

The Case of the Unlucky Handyman is the fourth story in the Annie Archer Paranormal Mysteries.

Have Yourself a Merry Little Murder

Clive Pippins, Lady Ginger Gold’s beloved, elderly butler is apparently Christmas shopping when a body is found. To the shock of everyone in Ginger’s household, the victim is the spinster cousin Pippins worked for during the years surrounding the Great War.

As Ginger investigates things begin to look grim for her dear butler. What had the man been up to during the war years, and had he been complicit in a crime?

What secret was Pips holding onto?

And worse, would he be the next victim before he had a chance to divulge it?

The only gift Ginger wants for the Christmas of 1927 is for the killer to be found before it’s time to ring in the new year!


Researching for the Ginger Gold Mysteries has been so much fun. I hope you sense that as you read. Ginger Gold is smart, savvy, and delightful. The fashions, the dances, the CRIME. The character of Haley Higgins, a medical student at the London Medical School for Women allows me to further delve into another keen interest of mine: forensics. Never fear, the Ginger Gold Mysteries are COZY, so no scary, graphic on-stage violence. You’ll find these books to be clean reads, with no swearing or sex. I hope you enjoy the Ginger Gold Mystery series!

Hop aboard the 1920s!

Editions Available: Kindle, Paperback

An innkeeper who reads minds. An ornery detective. And a trail of bodies. Cider Cove is the premier destination for murder.

 Cosmopolitan Magazine calls Addison’s books, “…easy, frothy fun!”

A laugh out loud cozy mystery by New York Times Bestseller Addison Moore and her partner in cozy crime, USA TODAY Bestseller Bellamy Bloom.

***Includes RECIPE

My name is Bizzy Baker, and I can read minds—not every mind, not every time but most of the time and believe me when I say it’s not all it’s cracked up to be.

Cider Cove, Maine, is sweltering in the heat of a long, hot, summer as the inn plays host to a local TV show, Cider Cove Home and Heart. While a trio of domestic divas do their best to regale their viewers with a clam bake, someone in the crowd is about to regale them with murder. A cute golden retriever puppy is soon left without its owner and I not only has a new home to find for the sweet pup, I have a killer to catch.

Emmie has a secret that will be brought to light, and Macy’s dirty thirty birthday bash is at hand.

Things are heating up in Cider Cove this summer—and with a homicide front and center, the clam bake isn’t the only thing about to boil over.

Bizzy Baker runs the Country Cottage Inn, has the ability to pry into the darkest recesses of both the human and animal mind, and has just stumbled upon a body. With the help of her kitten, Fish, a mutt named Sherlock Bones and an ornery yet dangerously good looking homicide detective, Bizzy is determined to find the killer.

The Country Cottage Inn is known for its hospitality. Leaving can be murder.

Cider Cove, Maine is the premier destination for fun and relaxation. But when a body turns up, it’s the premier destination for murder. (Amazon)
