Thread and Buried
Available June 4, 2013

In Threadville , Pennsylvania , known for its textile arts courses and shops, everyone’s stories are connected by a common thread—even the ones ending in murder…

Every town has a legend. For Threadville, it’s the story of Snoozy Gallagher, the hotel owner who disappeared thirty years ago with a bag full of stolen jewelry, never to be heard from again. That is, until now—when Snoozy’s loot is discovered buried behind Willow Vanderling’s embroidery shop, In Stitches.

When villagers mysteriously become ill, and a body shrouded in materials from Threadville shops appears in the exact spot in Willow’s back yard where the treasure was, Willow needs answers. And who left two kittens in her yard about the time the body was dumped there? But she gets in over her head and has to unravel the entire deadly mystery, or she might get tangled up as the killer’s next victim…

Refusing to let her friend get blamed for a crime she didn’t commit, Gigi is determined to hunt down the real killer.

Monument to the Dead (Museum Mystery #4)

by Sheila Connolly
Available June 4, 2013

As president of the Pennsylvania Antiquarian Society in Philadelphia, Nell Pratt relies on the generosity of philanthropists. But when someone starts killing benefactors, it’s Nell’s turn to come to their aid…

When Nell reads the obituary of a former board member, Adeline Harrison, she makes a mental note to send flowers and doesn’t think twice about it—until FBI agent James Morrison shares his suspicions about the nature of Adeline’s death. It turns out that a number of other members of the local cultural community have died in the last few months, under similar circumstances.

Soon Nell uncovers what seems to be a plot to rid Philadelphia of harmless, elderly philanthropists—but why? If she can figure out the killer’s motive, she has a chance of stopping the misanthropic murderer before another do-gooder is done in…

Mayhem at the Orient Express
Available June 4, 2013

Most folks aren't forced to attend a library book discussion group, but that's what happens to B&B proprietor and ex-Manhattanite Bea Cartwright, hippy cat lover Chandra Morrisey, and winery owner Kate Wilder after a small-town magistrate has had enough of their squabbling.  South Bass, an island in Lake Erie, is home to an idyllic summer resort, but these ladies keep disturbing the peace.

Their first read is Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express," and that sets their mouths watering.  The Orient Express is the island's newest Chinese restaurant.  They might not agree on much, but the ladies love the food there!  Too bad their meal is spoiled when the restaurant's owner, Peter Chan, is killed.  Now, with Christie as their inspiration, the League of Literary Ladies has a real mystery to solve...if they can catch a killer without killing each other first.
