A trip to state prison puts Jenny on the trail for a stolen necklace and right into the path of a killer…

The lights are just about to go out for good in my father’s PI office when I get an unexpected call from the state penitentiary. My mother’s only brother was sent up for robbery years ago, and now he needs Dad’s help to get his daughter out of trouble. It’s impossible for me to be sure that the pendant around Cousin Betty’s neck is stolen, but one thing’s for sure—she doesn’t want to talk about where it came from. When my cousin gets gunned down walking home and the necklace disappears, I realize I’m not only looking for a thief . . . I’m dealing with a murderer.

Can I track down the identity of a man named Jack in time, or will he disappear into the shadows, only to kill again?

Carmen has spent most of her life with ink on her fingers and a dangerously high pile of books and newspapers by her side.

She has worked as a newspaper reporter on two continents and always dreamt of becoming a novelist and screenwriter.

When she found herself crouched under her dining table, typing away on a novel between two earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, she realised she was hooked for life.

The shaken but stirring novel made it to the longlist of the Mslexia competition, and her next book and first mystery, The Case Of The Missing Bride, was a finalist in the Malice Domestic competition in a year without a winner.

Carmen now lives in York, UK, with her family, including a rescue cat and a leopard gecko, where she is working on a new Jack and Frances mystery.

The shopkeeper who slips into trances and foretells death? The visitor determined to practice black magic?
What Jayne knows for sure is that the closer she gets to solving this crime, the more the sheriff wants her to back off. And when a local fortune teller provides a crucial clue, Jayne knows it’s up to her to solve this murder.

Karina Cardinal’s Saturday starts out with a bang, and it’s not the home renovation marathon she’s watching on HGTV. It’s the FBI banging on her door, hunting for a fugitive. As if she could easily hide one in her modest condo. Especially one named Mike Finnegan.
The two of them called it splitsville a couple months ago, but Mike? Take a $1.2 million bribe? No and no and no. No matter how much damning evidence the feds claim to have.
When a mysterious burner phone shows up in her pocket, Karina has no doubt who dropped it there. Mike is deep undercover and so far off-grid, he needs help to figure out who’s framing him—and why.
Classic Karina, she jumps in with both feet, ignoring the dangers. The trouble with leaping before you look? You can land in a world of dirt. And when an old enemy starts playing hardball, you can end up six feet under it.

Dangerous Curves Boxed Set #1 (Dangerous Curves Books 1-3) by K.L. Montgomery

~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ BOOK SPOTLIGHT SHOWCASE ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~ ♦ ~
Dangerous Curves Boxed Set #1 (Dangerous Curves Books 1-3) by KL Montgomery Author
Genre – Cozy mystery, Christian mystery/suspense, clean/wholesome
This boxed set contains the first three books of the Dangerous Curves cozy Christian mystery series, set in the fictional small town of Bryce Beach. YA librarian and amateur sleuth Sunshine Baker, who hates her name and can’t even bake an edible muffin, always manages to put the clues together just in time to avoid disaster! Join this curvy redheaded librarian on her quest to keep Bryce Beach safe…and well-read, of course.
Book #1: Betrayal at the Beach
When tragedy strikes the Bryce Beach Public Library, the choice is clear for librarian Sunshine Baker: solve the mystery or lose her job.
Despite having no prior sleuthing experience, Sunshine feels uniquely qualified due to her ninja YA librarian skills and all those Nancy Drew books she read as a kid. With the help of children’s librarian Molly Simmons and cataloguer Evangeline Dupree, Sunshine and her colleagues scour Bryce Beach for suspects, clues, and the stolen treasure.
Can she and her squad recover the proceeds from the library’s annual fundraising gala and Bryce Beach’s most priceless historical artifact, the Bible with the town’s founding fathers’ signatures?
But here’s the most vexing question of all: could one of Sunshine’s colleagues be a backstabbing traitor out to destroy the library? As Sunshine always says, “Jesus, take the wheel!”
Book #2: Mystery at the Marina
Sea creatures are washing up dead on Bryce Beach…
…and librarian/amateur sleuth Sunshine Baker wants to know why.
It’s only been a month since Sunshine cracked the case of the Bryce Beach Bandit, who stole the library’s donations and the Founders’ Bible, a priceless relic. Now something else is afoot in the sleepy coastal town: dead fish and other sea creatures are washing up on the shore, and no one seems to know why.
Sunshine has noticed an increased Coast Guard presence in the waters near Bryce Cove. And the two labs researching the dead fish have both mysteriously misplaced the samples they took. She suspects these two situations are connected, but how can she prove it?
And what happens when she uncovers evidence that will ruin one of Bryce Beach’s most prominent families?
Book #3: Shooting at the Shore
There hasn’t been a murder in Bryce Beach since 1878, and librarian/amateur sleuth Sunshine Baker wants to know what happened to her quiet, charming town along the Eastern Seaboard.
The town has been abuzz with new tourists, and now a developer wants to come in and take over a whole city block with new restaurants, shops, and even swanky condos. One citizen has been rather vocal about trying to keep the big city developer out, and when the body washes up on shore, everyone suspects the sweeping changes Bryce Beach has been undergoing are related to the murder.
It doesn’t take Sunshine long to figure out that something much more sinister is afoot. She only needs to look deep into the past to figure out who has the motive, means, and opportunity…
If she gets that far before meeting the same fate as the victim.
Join Sunshine and her fellow librarians on their adventures to keep Bryce Beach safe. Scroll up and one-click this cozy Christian mystery boxed set today!
