Murder Any Witch Way

Title: Murder Any Witch Way
By: N. M. Howell
Publisher:  Dungeon Media Corporation
Published Date: September 12, 2016
236 Pages, 492 KB
Genre: Cozy Paranormal Mystery

About the Book:

Being a witch is hard. It’s even harder when you live in a town that doesn’t believe in witches.

When young witch River Halloway moves to sleepy Brimstone Bay for her very first journalist job, she doesn’t expect to cover anything ground-breaking. That is, until a paranormal festival comes to town and a body is found on opening night. Now, with all evidence pointing towards a witch, River must find the true killer before she becomes the prime suspect, or worse, the next murder victim.

This is book 1 of the Brimstone Bay Mysteries series. If you’re a fan of Amanda M. Lee, Juliette Harper, and Amy Boyles, then be sure to get your fill of magic, mystery, and murder with this cozy new paranormal mystery series.

Book Excerpt:

Every day was a busy day at the office, given that the paper had only been around for a few weeks now and we were still trying to make a name for ourselves. JoAnn worked us extra hard, often expecting ten stories from each of us at a time, just to be sure that we didn’t run out of fresh material for the paper. It was a weekly publication, but by the number of hours that we worked every day, you would think that it was a daily report. I rolled my eyes with my back to her and took a big swig of the burning-hot coffee. God, it felt glorious.
When I turned back towards her, I noticed her eyeing the messy stack of papers I had on my desk and she raised her eyebrow quizzically like she so often liked to do.

“Oh, I just had an idea for a story. I wanted to get in early and prepare before you got here, but I’m not too sure I found what I was looking for.”

“Okay then, let’s hear it.” JoAnn picked up her cup, leaned back in her reclining chair with her feet up on the desk, and took a long sip of hot coffee. “What’ve you got?”

“Well, I was thinking. Nothing too exciting ever really seems to happen in this sleepy town. Why don’t we make something happen?”

“I’m listening.” She looked skeptical.

“Well.” I chose my words as cautiously as I could muster. “I heard the Shadow Festival is passing through Portland this week. Why don’t we ask them if they’ll come through Brimstone Bay on their tour?”

I sat in my chair and sipped my coffee, watching JoAnn as she stared at me wide-eyed.

She laughed suddenly. “You actually think a town like Brimstone Bay would allow the Shadow Festival to come through?” She laughed again.

“No, think about it. Summer is almost over and before we know it, fall will be here. The Shadow Festival will get people excited for the Halloween season. If anything, it will bring money into the town and help all the local businesses.

Besides, who doesn’t love a little spooky fun?”

She continued to laugh and shake her head. “It’s just not going to happen.”

“It would make for a great story,” I said. “There are only so many births, birthdays, and deaths that we can put in the paper before people start dying of boredom from what we’re writing.”

“I agree, it would make for a great story. It would certainly liven up this sleepy town. But there’s no way to get anyone here to agree to let the festival come through.” JoAnn sat her coffee on the desk and opened her laptop to begin her day’s work.

I chewed my lip, trying to think of ways that we could get past this hurdle. The Shadow Festival was a traveling fair that went from the West Coast to the East Coast and then back again each year, celebrating all things paranormal. Most people assumed it was just a show and took their kids there as a fun way to celebrate the beginning of the Halloween season. Sometimes, it was just a fun excuse to do something spooky in the off-season, depending on when they came through each town. They had all the typical treats like candied apples and caramel corn, but the real treat was seeing all the witches, werewolves, ghouls, and other paranormal creatures coming out in their full glory. They would be out and about and wouldn’t have to hide behind closed doors.

Of course, most people just thought that they were wearing costumes and were part of the show, but everyone from within the paranormal community knew otherwise. It was a fun way for us to get together, celebrate our heritage, and finally get to be ourselves in front of non-magical people. Not only was it fun and exciting, but it always drew a massive crowd and brought a lot of money into each city it traveled through. It was just the kind of thing that Brimstone Bay needed, both socially and economically.

“Well, if I can find a way to get approval from the mayor…” I eyed JoAnn, waiting to hear her response.

She glanced up at me from behind her laptop, raised her eyebrow again and made a mmhmm noise. “Well, you have my blessing, dear. Good luck with that.”

I grinned. What JoAnn didn’t know was that our young new mayor had a bit of a crush on me, and I had a feeling that I could persuade him to allow the festival to come to town. Not only did he like me, but he had spent the better part of 20 years in Los Angeles and was familiar with the paranormal community. Mayor Scott confided in me that he had a number of friends that were witches back in the city. While I never admitted to being one myself to him, I suspected he knew anyway.
I finished the rest of my first coffee, grabbed the second, picked up my sweater and backpack, and bounded out the front door before JoAnn could protest.

Murder on Edisto

Title of Book: Murder on Edisto
By: C. Hope Clark
Genre: Mystery

Book Excerpt: When her husband is murdered by the Russian mob, Boston detective Callie Jean Morgan suffers a mental break and relinquishes her badge to return to South Carolina. She has no idea how to proceed with her life, but her son deserves to move on with his, so she relocates them to the family vacation home.

But the day they arrive on Edisto Beach, Callie finds her childhood mentor and elderly neighbor murdered. Her fragile sanity is threatened when the murderer taunts her, and the home that was to be her sanctuary is repeatedly violated. Callie loses her fight to walk away from law enforcement as she becomes the only person able to pursue the culprit who’s turned the coastal paradise into a paranoid patch of sand where nobody’s safe. But what will it cost her?

EXCERPT:
An explosion shot flames out of the roof. She pulled against the officer. “John!”

Firemen labored to unravel more hoses. In the background, she heard Jeb screaming for his father above all the sirens and people hollering.

A deafening blast. The force hurled her and the cop backward across the lawn. Air whooshed from her lungs as her back slammed into the grass. She lay half-dazed, but pain still tore through her left forearm.

Two firemen lifted her and smothered her burning sleeve, careful not to hit the jagged piece of embedded shrapnel.

She stared numb at the burning wreckage of her home as someone fussed over her arm. No one could have survived.

Then, as if to confirm the terrible finality, she caught the reality of John’s death in the sorrow of a fireman’s eyes, the slow shake of his head to his partner. Their glance back at her.

Jeb beat his way through the throng and threw himself into her arms. At first she didn’t hear his sobs, then her son’s deep wrenching cries reverberated hard against her collarbone. She dug her fingers into his hair, her injured arm around his trembling body.

“Shhh,” she said against Jeb’s shoulder. She couldn’t bring herself to say everything would be all right. Nothing would ever be right again. As she stroked his head, she squeezed her eyes shut and her tears leaked into his shirt. She could pray John was kidnapped, but her heart told her it just wasn’t so.

 

Author Bio: C. Hope Clark holds a fascination with the mystery genre and is author of The Carolina Slade Mystery Series as well as the Edisto Beach Series, both set in her home state of South Carolina. In her previous federal life, she performed administrative investigations and married the agent she met on a bribery investigation.

Death Pledges a Sorority

Title of Book: Death Pledges a Sorority51nm0hly3kl-_sy346_

By: M. K. Scott

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Book Excerpt:

Mark had asked her to find out who the victim and the murderer were in the game. She pulled out her phone and dialed her mother’s number.

“Hello, Mom.”

“What’s up, sweetie?”

“I need to know if you know who the murderer and the victim were in the game last night.”

“No. I made a point of not reading the cards. Did you read yours?”

Caught. Besides, when did she have time to do all this stuff? “I scanned it. About all I got from it was I had a disappointing romance with the chauffeur.”

“Well, that’s more than what I know.”

Her lips tightened as she considered what Mark’s response would be when she informed him no one had read the cards.

“Was this a program or something? Could we print the cards out?”

“We could. I’ll do that, but I don’t have a clue what order I gave the cards out. I made myself the housekeeper, you the cook, and Ten the man servant.”

“Jenna was some medium or something.”

“True.”

“We could ask the ladies if they remember what character they were.”

“We could. I’m sure some still have their cards. We’re doing this why?” Cecilia’s voice had taken on a wheedling tone.

Of course, her mother sniffed out a mystery. “Well, ah, there’s no reason to think Taylor’s death was anything but accidental, but you know Mark. The man’s always on the job.”

The silence on the end of the phone didn’t bode well. “Mom? Are you still there?

“Yes. I thought as much. It’s always odd when someone who is hated that much ends up dead.”

“Hated? Isn’t that a little strong? No one had to come to the girls’ weekend if they didn’t want to.” Donna would have put Jenna down as a hater, but she couldn’t say about the others. A few probably had even admired Taylor and wanted to be somewhat like her.

Her mother’s sigh carried across the line. “Donna, you are my strong-willed child. Probably came from being the first-born. You have no clue what it is like to be a follower.”

“You do?” Her mother had one gear, and that was full speed ahead. The woman never suffered any doubts or second thoughts.

“Well, I do watch several reality shows. Those people tend to be followers. Anyhow, the weak are always making alliances and buckling under to the strong. We know from Jenna’s tell all séance that Taylor had something on the women. That’s how she manipulated them. Could be someone was tired of dancing to her tune.”

Molly’s Misadventures

Title of Book: Molly’s Misadventures51bko0593vl-_sy346_

By: D. E. Haggerty

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Book Excerpt: Danny clears his throat and turns to me. “I was going to ask you something about your blog.” I raise an eyebrow at him. “Why don’t you ever blog about me?”

I nearly choke on my wine. “Blog about you? The blogs are about my dates.”

“Babe, pay attention.” He grabs my chin. “What do you think we’re doing?”

My eyes nearly pop out of my head. “Being good friends?”

He shakes his head. “Um, no. I’m wooing you.”

“Wooing me?”

“Yeah, wooing.” He points between us. “Do you think I drink wine on my porch with just anyone?”

I’m confused. “You don’t like wine?”

He chuckles. “Look at me. I’m a single guy with a kid. Why would I have wine in the house?”

The dominoes begin to fall in place. “Oh.”

“Yeah, oh. Come over here.”

He takes my wine and places it on the ground next to his glass before firmly grabbing my head and planting his lips on mine. The kiss is soft, sweet, and everything that’s right in the world. And it’s not enough. I want, no need, more. I grab his neck and pull him closer. He growls and grabs my head to tilt it to his liking so he can deepen the kiss. I’m putty in his hands by the time he eases up and pulls back. What. Just. Happened?

61wjqetmdvl-_ux250_Author Bio: I grew up reading everything I could get my hands on from my mom’s Harlequin romances to Nancy Drew to Little Women. When I wasn’t flipping pages in a library book, I was penning horrendous poems, writing songs no one should ever sing, or drafting stories which have thankfully been destroyed. College and a stint in the U.S. Army came along, robbing me of free time to write and read, although I did manage, every once in a while, to sneak a book into my rucksack between rolled up socks, MRIs, t-shirts, and cold weather gear. After surviving the army experience, I went back to school and got my law degree. I jumped ship and joined the hubby in the Netherlands before the graduation ceremony could even begin. A few years into my legal career, I was exhausted, fed up, and just plain done. I quit my job and sat down to write a manuscript, which I promptly hid in the attic after returning to the law. But being a lawyer really wasn’t my thing, so I quit (again!) and went off to Germany to start a B&B. Turns out being a B&B owner wasn’t my thing either. I decided to follow the husband to Istanbul for a few years where I managed to churn out book after book. But ten years was too many to stay away from ‘home’. I packed up again and moved to The Hague where I’m currently working on my next book. I hope I’ll always be working on my next book.

New Release – Dangerous Regrets

51xmna2dyflTitle of Book: The Men of Machismo: Dangerous Regrets

By: Morgan Kay

Publisher: Sleeping Dragon Press

Publication Date: February 6, 2017

Genre: Romance

Book Excerpt: “Sorry, bro.” The unknown man muttered as he strode to the door. Killian had already reached across his body for the shoulder upholster that wasn’t there. Thank God for that, his rapid-fire reactions might have caused an incident in the sleepy town. His eyes squeezed shut as he took a deep breath, trying to quell his fight or flight response. His reaction veered to fight nine out of ten times. It would probably be best to leave.

He exhaled and opened his eyes to an attractive brunette attired in a referee shirt complete with a silver whistle.

The woman smiled at him. “Can I help you?”

He blinked. Did he need her to officiate at a pickup softball game? The televisions, the bar, the name Sweaty’s, and the bizarre referee outfit all added up to sports bar. It should worry him that it took him so long to add up the clues. Even though he took a bullet to the thigh, his brain took the biggest hit. He might as well give up his Man Card if it took him seconds to register the second home of most men, the sports bar. Killian managed a tight smile.
s
“Well, I was hoping to get something to eat, but it looks pretty crazy.”

The woman wrinkled her nose. “It’s a little bit, but most of the customers are drivers that popped in for the rally. The majority already settled up their bills and should be headed out to the track to warm up before tonight’s race. I can get you a seat next to the kitchen if you don’t mind?” She gestured with the hand holding her order pad to a small table against the wall and next to the kitchen door.

“Suits me.” It did since his back would be against the wall. He exhaled heavily, knowing he shored up the cop stereotype by wanting to have a wall behind him. He backed into parking places for a quick getaway too when possible. Not all stereotypical behavior was a bad thing. Some were more of a survival mechanism.

He allowed the cute waitress to lead the way while his eyes dipped briefly to how well she filled out her shorts. Killian brought his eyes up fast not wanting her to catch him ogling. Some labels he didn’t want. At the table, the woman handed him a menu, but he handed it back. No need to look when he knew what he wanted. He peered at her nametag, which was pinned to a noteworthy chest. Why did women do that and then accuse men of staring at their breasts?

“Darcy, I know what I want.”

The woman shifted her weight on her feet and flushed a little, which puzzled him.

“What would that be?” She held her pen over the order pad.

“Burger platter. The biggest one you have with fries. Beer. Anything on tap, except light.”

She dashed the pencil across the pad before reading the order back. “One Come to Daddy combo with fries and onion rings. Beer on tap.” She lifted her eyebrows.

“Yeah. Sounds good. Not too sure about the name though.”

His comment surprised a chuckle out of Darcy.

The Valentine Matchmaker Collection

valentine-matchmaker-large-boxed-set-2-300x300Title of Book: The Valentine Matchmaker Collection

Genre: Sweet Romance/Inspirational

Book Excerpt: from WHY NOT’s heroine Amber Wynot:
“I’m willing to work hard to see what I can do. I will not allow your opinions to dissuade me.”

He turned to her then, surprised. The white fur collar of her coat reflected in eyes as dark green as the scrubby pines and juniper surrounding them. She’d been leaning in front of him for a better view, and now sat back.

“Can I give you some advice?”

She nodded.

“Be careful how close you are to the edge before you jump to conclusions.” He tapped the reins lightly.

She bit her lip to keep from smiling.

As the wagon continued down the road, she studied the big, handsome man next to her. He had a pleasing profile and a fine line of dirt along the side of his neck where his quick wash up ended. According to Mrs. Bunch, Mr. Morrison was the head stonemason for both the Hermit’s Rest project and the one called The Lookout. A respected employee in the Fred Harvey Company. She needed an ally. Maybe there was a better way.

“Thank you.”

“For what?”

“For not being angry about what happened back there.” Next to her on the bench like this, he seemed to be as solid and square as the stones he worked with. Maybe more so with his pants and boots covered with grit.

“Who says I wasn’t angry?” One fetching dimple appeared in his cheek, above his still dusty beard.

Why couldn’t he be twice her age and half as good-looking?

Cindy’s Notebook First Book of the Year Award goes to….

My husband picked up a book that has been on my nightstand for a long time.

“Are you ever going to read this?” he asked.

“I have,” I replied.

“What’s it about?” he asked.

“Do you have the time for me to tell you about it?”

“Was it good?”

“Yes, it was!”

“So, what are you, book blogger, going to do about it?”

He had that glint in his eyes that says…”I know you want to.”

“I wrote a review and posted it on Amazon, to help promote it.  And I tweet, etc. about it every now and then.” I said.

“You are a book blogger.  Aren’t you going to do more?” he asked.

“More,” I thought.  Why would I want to do more than what I have already done or do when I think about it.  It is not my book after all.

Yet, this simple word “more” got me thinking.  What more could I do?

Then it donned on me.  I could start a book award of the year and this would be the first receiver of that award.

So, here is the first award that “Cindy’s Notebook” is giving away.

Congratulations:51spqu1ewl-_uy250_
