Crime and Retribution (Saffron Diffley 1)

It’s an important day for Saffron Diffley. First day at the office. First day collaborating with her brothers in the family firm of Diffley Insurance. And first day as an agent for Karma Corps, the mysterious agency tasked with balancing crime and punishment in our world. A transgender woman has been murdered in Happy Bays, and it’s up to Saffron and her brothers to find out who’s behind the murder, and serve the culprit the proper retribution.

Unfortunately, new cop in town Logan Munroe is also adamant to apprehend the killer, and doesn’t like a young and inexperienced insurance claims adjuster inserting herself into his investigation. Soon he’s not just arresting criminals, but looking to place the handcuffs on Saffron’s slender wrists as well—at least when they’re not verbally sparring while out collecting clues and interviewing a colorful cast of suspects.

And then there’s Saffron’s little brother Rodrick trying to prove their neighbor is a witch, Dalton throwing his weight around, Calvin being his usual obnoxious self, Lucien wanting to become a woman, Brice dreaming of becoming a Hollywood star, and Jerome, the family’s aged French Mastiff, spreading a particularly noxious odor wherever he goes. In other words, chaos as usual at Diffley Manor, with Grandma trying to stay on top of things.

Will Saffron serve justice in spite of Detective Logan Munroe’s objections? Will Logan survive the scrutiny of the Diffley brood? And will Saffron be able to resist a sudden and powerful attraction to the burly cop? Find out in Crime and Retribution, the first installment in the new humorous paranormal cozy mystery series Saffron Diffley. Expect a riveting mystery, a hint of the paranormal, a touch of romance, and a lot of laughs.

Witchy Start (Neighborhood Witch Committee 1)

Edelie Flummox runs a flower shop in the Haymill neighborhood in Brooklyn along with her two sisters. Not that she’s particularly interested in flowers, or running a store. Edelie is, after all, a witch, and feels she should probably be doing witchy stuff instead of playing store. Unfortunately, the Flummox triplets are not exactly the world’s most competent witches, and their grandmother has decided to strip them of their witchy powers to save an unsuspecting world the aggravation.

When one of Edelie’s neighbors is murdered, and handsome local cop Sam Barkley proves clueless, she decides to look into the murder herself, and try to catch the killer. Soon she’s in way over her head, hounding suspects and ferreting out clues. And when the houseguests of her grandmother’s new bed & breakfast prove unusually annoying, it looks like Edelie and her sisters don’t even need witchcraft to make life very complicated for a lot of people.

Witchy Start is the first book in the humorous Neighborhood Witch Committee cozy mystery series. It follows the Witchy Fingers series, which introduced the Flummox triplets, and is complete at four books. You don’t need to have read Witchy Fingers to enjoy this new series, however, as it stands alone.

Who is Alice Whitehouse? Mortician’s assistant, gun store clerk and chairwoman of the neighborhood watch committee. Loving daughter to the Chief of Police. Best friend to local baker Felicity Bell. And then there’s the fact that Alice sees dead people. Unfortunately, they can also see her, and occasionally ask her help in solving their murder. With pluck, resolve and cheerfulness in the face of danger, she does just that, aided and abetted by the members of her neighborhood watch committee, and local police detective Rock Walker, on whom she may or may not have a secret—or not-so-secret—crush.

When Gemma Weston is found murdered, the crime baffles the police. It also baffles Alice’s neighborhood watch committee, but that has never stopped the spunky ladies of the committee before. They dive headfirst into the murder investigation, very much to the exasperation of Alice’s dad, Chief of Police Whitehouse, and the newest member of the Happy Bays Police Department, Detective Rock Walker. Spurred on by an increasingly annoying Gemma, whose ghost isn’t the nicest one Alice has ever encountered, she puts her sleuthing powers to the test to catch a killer before he or she can strike again.

Spooky Times is the first installment in this new humorous cozy ghost mystery series featuring Alice Whitehouse. You may have met Alice before, in The Mysteries of Bell & Whitehouse. This spinoff stands alone, and doesn’t require any knowledge of the original series, which is complete at nine books.

First Shot (Washington & Jefferson 1)

Nine years ago Anna Washington became world famous when she slapped Chris Jefferson across the face in the middle of her father’s inaugural address. He had it coming. After all, he’d been putting the moves on the vice-president’s daughter in full view of millions of viewers, and, more importantly, in front of Anna, whose kiss and innocence he’d stolen underneath the Resolute Desk four years before, when his father was inaugurated.

A lot has happened since then. Jack Washington became the first American president to be impeached, after giving the executive order to take out a terrorist cell, which turned out to be a hog farm. Wrecked by guilt, he bought what was left of the farm and became a pig farmer. Anna went from First Daughter to pig farmer’s daughter, a setback she blames entirely on Chris Jefferson, since it was his dad who had her dad impeached.

Nine years later, she’s working as a waitress in a coffee shop in Manhattan, dreaming of becoming a famous singer. So when she runs into Chris, she’s not exactly thrilled. The former First Son, now a bestselling writer of conspiracy thrillers, claims their dads have been kidnapped by some maniac. Soon her life is turned upside down once again, as their search for the two ex-presidents leads the unlikely duo of former First Kids on a cross-country rescue mission, hot on the trail of the man who took their fathers, a man whose evil plan just might bring the United States and its ex-presidents to its knees.

Will the former First Daughter and First Son find their fathers? Will Anna Washington be able to resist Chris Jefferson’s relentless charm? Find out in First Shot, the first book in the new humorous mystery series Washington & Jefferson.

The Kenspeckles, stars of the well-known reality show Keeping Up with the Kenspeckles, are in town to film a new season of their show, so the case soon turns into a complete media circus, with the Kenspeckles insisting the entire investigation is filmed for their show.

Odelia Poole, Hampton Cove’s premier reporter, teams up with Detective Chase Kingsley to catch the killer, but with cameras filming their every move, and every Kenspeckle a suspect, they’re not making a lot of progress. Good thing Odelia’s cats Max and Dooley can sneak around undetected, tracking leads and hunting clues. But first they have to pacify Shana’s French Bulldog Kane, who just might be in possession of the clue that breaks the case. And they have to outsmart Chase’s black tabby Brutus, who has his own reasons to find the killer.

Will Max and Dooley solve the case? Or will Brutus beat them to it? And will Dooley finally get to first tail with Harriet? Find out in Purrfect Revenge, the third installment in the funny cat mystery series The Mysteries of Max.
