The first review of my latest mystery, As the Crowe Dies, has been posted at Amazon. It’s a 4-star, and I am thrilled. A good review makes the work that goes into writing a novel so worth it.
Read the review from Lisa reviewer at Haven’t Got a Clue here.
“You weren’t supposed to come.” So says Hetty Fox to poor. long-suffering Andrew. Hetty has just arrived in Chicago to visit an old friend. She’s been looking forward to being free of her ghost and the endless warfare that goes on between him and her cat. But Blackie is being cared for by her daughter. If only Hetty could have found someone to corral Andrew, her vacation might have been perfect. That is if that danged corpse hadn’t turned up.
Of course, Andrew is all for Hetty jumping into the murder investigation. It seems even in a big city, the skills of a small-town sleuth can be helpful.

Melanie Hart and friend, Ginger Black, are chasing another killer in As the Crowe Dies. In this book the murderer has struck at the high school. Father catches word of the death when police put out radio calls for help. Maybe, with dear old dad sending her off to the chase, this time he won’t pull Melanie off the news story.
But Melanie faces even stiffer challenges as there is a new reporter in town. Dirk Weir has moved here from Chicago. He says he’s come to live nearer his daughter. But all Melanie sees is a competitor, the likes of which she’s never faced before.
Meanwhile the killer keeps playing his murderous games, and Melanie and Ginger have their hands full trying to catch up.
Facing a ghost, a dead body, and a cat, Hetty Fox has her hands full. Recently widowed and new to to town, she also must find her place among a village of strangers. That effort is how she discovers her first dead body. It also launches her into her first murder investigation.
But her effort to track a killer gets muddled as ghost and cat compete for her attention. Then there’s her daughter, Megan. How is Hetty to track a killer without tipping her off? Finally, mix in a clever killer, and Hetty finds herself truly challenged in this lighthearted, mystery novella.
This is the first book in a new series for me. It’s available to buy or you may download it for free with Kindle Unlimited. The book’s been fun to write and, I’m looking forward to putting out many more of these cozy tales.

The second in my Melanie Hart mystery series went live at Amazon late yesterday afternoon. In this book Ginger Black is in charge of the Downtown Business Association’s Santa’s Cabin. But the elf who keeps things running smoothly there has come up missing. Under Association Bylaws, Ginger must take over his duties until a replacement can be found. That means babysitting children who have been dropped off at the cabin while their parents shop. Melanie Hart thinks having Ginger anywhere near raucous children and a laughing fat man could lead to murder. So Melanie takes it upon herself to track the missing man down.
Obviously, I’m excited. It’s available to buy at Amazon for borrow through Kindle Unlimited. Take a minute. Check it out.
