March Releases for Killer Characters

Spring is just around the corner, and there are plenty of new releases from our authors to help you celebrate!

A Mind Reader Mystery #1


Peril for Your Thoughts

Publisher: Thomas & Mercer  
Series: A Mind Reader Mystery
ISBN: 9781477849903

Kalli always imagined life would be easier if she could just read people’s minds. But when a freak accident gives her such a gift, her life becomes anything but easy, especially after her best friend is accused of murder. Kalli’s a shy, slightly OCD, mind-reading fashion designer with a prissy calico cat and hand sanitizer always at the ready. Nik’s a loud and boisterous half-Greek detective with a big, sloppy St. Bernard and a devil-may-care attitude. In other words, Kalliope Ballas and Nikos Stevens are not a good match, despite the opinions of Kalli’s overbearing mother, and the rest of her tight-knit adoptive Greek family. So when a murder investigation brings the mismatched pair together, and Kalli must use her newfound ability to clear her best friend’s name, how can she explain how she knows what she knows without confessing her mind-reading ability to Nik?

It’s been two years since Skye Mertz agreed to drive Abe’s Taxi for the Dead, transporting his undead workers back to the man who gave them an additional twenty years of life.

Now she has a partner—a housewife working off her undead husband’s service—and she’s met a sorcerer with amnesia.

Kath Rutledge is settling in as the owner of the Weaver’s Cat, a fiber and fabric shop in Blue Plum, Tennessee. But nothing, not even the ghost haunting her shop, prepares her for the mystery that will leave the whole town spinning.  It’s time for Blue Plum’s annual historical festival, and everyone—including Kath and her spunky fiber and needlework group, TGIF—is getting in on the action. Expert spinners are being gathered, and a businessman has approached Kath about using the second-floor windows of her store for part of a reenactment. But the reenactment ends in real-life bloodshed when local baker Reva Louise Snapp is shot—with a bullet from a modern-day gun. Kath has her theories about who wanted to end Reva Louise’s life. But there’s also talk of a sniper stalking Blue Plum, and Kath’s shop is suspected to be the murderer’s hideout. Now Kath, her TGIF pals, and the gloomy ghost, Geneva, must unravel the mystery quickly, or someone else might be left hanging by a thread.
