Book 4 in the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries

No Mallets Intended
Victoria Hamilton

Vintage Kitchen Mysteries

ISBN-13: 978-0425271391

The Queensville Heritage Society is restoring the once-grand Dumpe Manor. While Dumpe relatives and society members use the occasion to dust off old grudges, Jaymie Leighton prefers to adorn the kitchen with authentic Depression Era furnishings. A collection of vintage wooden mallets found in the house is a perfect addition to her display, but one also offers a late-night intruder the perfect weapon to knock Jaymie unconscious before escaping.

Though the attack has everyone on edge, nothing is missing from the house. Perhaps it was merely a vagrant who thought the place was still abandoned. But when Dumpe Manor’s resident historian is murdered with a mallet from the same collection, it’s time for Jaymie to turn up the heat on the investigation before someone else becomes history.

Book 6 in the National Bestselling Missing Pieces Mysteries

Mayor Dae O'Donnell of Duck, North Carolina, is a finder of lost things. She has a psychic gift for finding lost things and people that has been passed down to her from her grandmother. She runs the Missing Pieces Thrift Store to have a place to keep some of the things she finds, and to give back things that are missing to their rightful owners.

When wild horse rescue director Tom Watts is found dead on Duck Road, Dae is determined to find out who killed him. Her friend, Jake Burleson, is accused of killing Tom, but Dae realizes something more - something wicked - is behind Tom’s death. She’s afraid a terrifying part from the past has already returned to her small town, and there may be more deaths to come.

Christmas is coming, but how much of Duck will be left to enjoy it?

Featuring Pet Psychic Mary Catherine Roberts!

Book 4 in the Haunted Yarn shop Mysteries

Molly MacRae
Plagued by Quilt
Obsidian (NAL/Penguin Random House)
Haunted Yarn Shop Mysteries
ISBN: 045147130X

In this latest novel in the national bestselling series, yarn shop owner Kath Rutledge is at a historic farm in Blue Plum, Tennessee, volunteering for the high school program Hands on History. But when a long-buried murder is uncovered on the property, Kath needs help from Geneva the ghost to solve a crime that time forgot....

Kath and her needlework group TGIF (Thank Goodness It’s Fiber) are preparing to teach a workshop at the Holston Homeplace Living History Farm, but their lesson in crazy quilts is no match for the crazy antics of the assistant director, Phillip Bell. Hamming it up with equal parts history and histrionics, Phillip leads an archaeological dig of the farm’s original dump site—until one student stops the show by uncovering some human bones.

When a full skeleton is later excavated, Kath can’t help but wonder if it’s somehow connected to Geneva, the ghost who haunts her shop, and whom she met at this very site. After Phillip is found dead, it’s up to Kath to thread the clues together before someone else becomes history.

  1. I want to read all three! Since getting back into reading cozy mysteries, this summer, it will take forever to read all the books, I've found, I want to read!
