New Releases

19 Criminals


Maizie Albright Star Detective 8

by Larissa Reinhart

Releases January 16

It's Spy vs Spy — or rather, Detective vs Detective — when Maizie and Nash realize they're both tailing the same subject for very different reasons. Can Maizie out-investigate Nash to learn the secrets he’s probing into at her father’s company? Her relationship is on the line, but it's more than her heart at stake. Her career rests on this case. And there’s a killer at large. One who will do anything to keep dark secrets from getting dragged into the light.

A Swatch of Murder


by Summer Prescott

Released December 1

Décor diva, Sari-not-sorry Samson, a doting shih-tzu mom, loves her eclectic clients, coffee, and her bffs, though not necessarily in that order. Her meticulously organized life is turned upside down when the authority-shy decorator witnesses a suspect fleeing a murder scene.

Dirt & Deceit


A Clean Sweep Cozy Mystery

by Dianne Harman

Releases December 16

Known for her keen ability to unravel the most confounding mysteries, Jane is approached by a high-society socialite to solve a case that’s as scandalous as it is deadly: the murder of the socialite's boyfriend. As Jane delves deeper into the opulent world of the wealthy, she quickly learns that beneath the veneer of privilege and glamour lie the same passions and pitfalls that affect us all – love, jealousy, and, in this case, murder.

Wedding Blitz


Silver Hills Cozy Mysteries

by Sam Cheever

Releases January 2

Agnes and Hertz are finally getting married. It would be nice to report that all was going to go as planned. Unfortunately, we’re dealing with Flo and Co. and their propensity for finding bodies everywhere they go.

These nuptials might be noxious. The wedding may be weird. The marriage could be murderous.

Perps On Parade


Junkyard Dog Cozy Mysteries 6

by Summer Prescott

Released December 1

Consumed with her business, Macy still makes time to help plan a pet parade to raise funds and secure adoptions for the dogs at Happy Paws. When a Junkyard Dog client ropes Macy into investigating the all too convenient death of her friend, Macy is glad that she hired an assistant when she did. Particularly an assistant who loves murder mysteries.
