Celebrate Harry and Hermione’s First Birthdays with Two Free Books

To celebrate Harry and Hermione’s first birthdays, you can get two of my books free, Love on the Rocks, my latest Cobble Cove cozy mystery, and Reason to Die, my mystery thriller. Both will be free Kindle ebooks on Amazon from Friday, July 19 to Monday, July 22.

Love on the Rocks

It’s February in the small town of Cobble Cove. Love is in the air . . . but so is murder!

When Alicia helps plan a Valentine’s Day Party at the Cobble Cove library that also includes a surprise for her newlywed friend, Gilly, things go wrong when a mysterious box of chocolates addressed to the director turns out laced with poison.

Clues Lead to A Dead Suspect

Although Alicia promised John she’ll no longer meddle in crime investigations, she and Gilly set out to find the person threatening Sheila who murdered the courier of the deadly candy. The three people they suspect include the professor from California who’s been romancing Sheila while she assists him with research for his book; the obnoxious patron Rhonda Kleisman who threw coffee at the director after refusing to pay for a damaged book; and a visiting widow staying at Gilly’s inn who’s unnaturally curious about Sheila and earns the nickname of Madame Defarge for her interest in knitting.

New Cat in Town

While Alicia and Gilly are trying to solve this new Cobble Cove mystery, Sneaky is introduced to Gilly’s new kitten, Kittykai, a calico she brought home from her honeymoon in Hawaii. It’s not like at first sight, but the two cats eventually become friends. They also both play a part in foiling the killer’s murder attempts, but will Alicia and Sheila survive unscathed?

Reason to Die

Someone is strangling disabled people in the small town of Baxter, Connecticut. Detective Courtney Lang and her ex-partner and ex-lover, wheelchair-bound Bill Thompson, are paired up again and put in charge of the investigation. During the course of their search, Courtney uncovers information that points toward a connection between the murders and an unsolved series of muggings by a masked man, the same man who shot and disabled Bill a year ago on the night he proposed marriage to her.

Complicating matters for Courtney is her guilt about Thompson’s shooting, her affair with her new partner, Mark Farrell, and her unresolved feelings over the deaths of her mother and sister who perished in a fire while she was away from home.

As the deaths accrue and the “Handicapped Strangler” as the killer is coined by the press continues to rampage the town adding victims of different ages, sex, and disabilities to the murder count, Courtney discovers a clue that could crack open the case but may put her and Bill’s life in jeopardy.

I hope you enjoy the books.

Also, in honor of Harry and Hermione turning 1, I’m hosting a fundraiser for the Golden Paws Society, the rescue from which they came. The fundraiser is running through July 24. It would be great if you could contribute any amount to help other kittens and cats find homes. https://www.facebook.com/donate/1954368081329994/

In addition, one of the winners of my recent Kitten Day Contest operates a rescue that is greatly in need of help. Any amount you can donate to her GoFundMe campaign will be much appreciated. https://www.gofundme.com/f/lynnes-kitty-rescue

Due to some personal issues, this blog will be on hiatus until further notice starting August 1. However, special promotions, offers, and important notices will be posted on an occasional basis. Thanks for subscribing and for your support.
