      • 75. Caught Dead in Philadelphia by Gillian Roberts

        Caught Dead in Philadelphia  by Gillian Roberts

         

        The debut of Philly Prep English teacher and accidental sleuth, Amanda Pepper, (and of C.K. Mackenzie, homicide detective) won the World Mystery Convention's "Anthony" for best first mystery.

        When the body of a colleague is found dead in Amanda's living room, she has to clear herself of suspicion — and make sure she isn't the next victim as well. And all she's got as a clue to the real killer's identity is a locket shaped like Winnie-the-Pooh.

          Hot Tea

           

           

          Hot Tea  :   Hot Tea (First book in The Tea Series)]] --  Cara O'Flynn finds herself in an unusual position.  She's quit her job and can afford to take a few weeks to find a new career.  Plus her roommate has run off and left her with an empty room to fill.  If she can just accomplish those two tasks before her mother finds out she has no income and no one to help pay the bills, she's in good shape.     The problem - Cara didn’t plan for three careers in as many days, nor did she anticipate the new guys that dropped in her lap.  And then there's her sister Teagan, while always helpful and funny, she can be a bit annoying at times.  When you’re Irish, all things (good and bad) come in threes.  It’s inevitable.  Cara should have remembered not to forget that part.    Cara and Teagan bring laughter, intelligence, and family tradition to every experience they encounter. 

           

          I hope you will give the series a try.  I am currently working on book seven - Summer Tea.

           

          Thanks!

                  Monkey See, Monkey Murder  by Jack Bates

                   

                  Hack Ward thought he had found a niche market for his skills as a private investigator when Hollywood came to Detroit. When washed up director Will Peyton gets pegged to direct a low-brow family comedy starring a chimp and a perpetual bad-girl pop star, Hack gets brought in by Peyton to keep an eye on starlet Haley Goslin. It’s not because Peyton is concerned about her image; it’s because Peyton is in love with the younger woman and doesn’t want her fooling around on him.

                  It isn’t long, however, before events on the set start turning sinister. Hack is on hand the day the chimp has a psychotic episode and attacks Haley. Saving her life sets off a chain of events that bring Hack and Haley closer together and puts them in more and more danger. On the morning she gets called into the set to shoot some additional footage, they have no idea they are getting called into a trap.

                  When it comes to murder, which is the more dangerous animal? Chimp ... or man?

                        Elizabeth Hart enjoys her high-powered job and her lakeside home but is tired of Officer Andrew Baird's hands-off policy. A mere ten year age gap is no reason for refusing romance, is it?

                        As Andrew searches for the motive behind a young woman's death, Elizabeth carefully plots her revenge against the handsome man who treats her as a younger sister. By using Andrew's penchant for practical jokes against him, she learns how to pursue truth, justice, and the handsome cop next door.

                          All Lindsay wants is a normal life. What she’s got is anything but.

                          Betrothed to the Devil by her greedy father, Lindsay was blissfully unaware there was anything unusual about her life until her twenty-first birthday, when the groom appeared before her and presented her with a black diamond wedding band.

                          Displaying uncharacteristic patience and soft heartedness toward his young wife, Big Red (as Lindsay calls him) endures all her attempts to annul their union and forge an independent life as far away from his world as she can possibly get. In the end, all he really wants is her happiness.

                          When the ghost of Lindsay’s father visits and offers her exactly what she wants, will she still be so eager to rid herself of her husband?

                            The Counterfeit  Historical Romantic Suspense from the author of the Kindle Bestselling Gothic and Time Travel Romance, ISLAND OF SECRETS

                            Sometimes the Road to Justice is filled with Compromise…

                            Jeremy Loud is good at what he does.

                            As a Secret Service Operative he’s quick on his feet and a master of his emotions.

                            Then, he wakes up naked, disoriented and in physical pain to find a mysterious woman busy at his stove. His first mistake is assuming she’s a barmaid. His biggest mistake is underestimating her ability to get into trouble. Soon he realizes his assignment to infiltrate and bring to justice the infamous Quincy Davenport and his band of counterfeiters might be easier than keeping one strong-willed and beautiful redhead out of trouble.

                            Magen MacGuire is determined to find the man responsible for her father’s death and make him pay.

                            Then, her plans go awry and a case of mistaken identity leads her to the last thing she expects; a mysterious stranger she could easily fall in love with. She makes a choice to right a wrong, but in her case doing the right thing isn’t viewed as proper and gets them both into even more trouble.

                            The odds are against them, but can they find the love of a lifetime before their secrets are exposed and if they do can they overcome the lies?

                              Can you trust God for 30 days?

                              You ever notice how there are some things that keep on showing up repetitively in your life and you’re asking “again”? Ever wondered what the lesson you are supposed to take from this and be learning? Ever wonder why do you keep missing it?

                              I’ve heard that the repetitiveness that continues to show up in our lives is the Universe attempting to teach us something and until we finally get it, it will continue to repeat itself. I must say from all of the repetitiveness that has been showing up in my life; I’ve come to the conclusion that the Universe- God is trying to teach me something really important. I’ve been feeling like maybe HE’s trying to say: “You don’t get to react Liza; you only get to trust me. I will act for you.

                                This one sounds intriguing; downloaded a sample and gonna give it a try. Gotta say though, I'm dubious about $5.99 for an author I've never heard of. I might have clicked buy if it had been $2.99 or $3.99.

                                  Place a young man and a young woman together in a cramped apartment. Stir in a pinch of jealousy, a dash of spite, a hint of infidelity. Steep in a broth of alcohol and let simmer before bringing to a slow boil. It's a fast, easy recipe for murder...
