Bed and Breakfast and Murder (Fiona Fleming Cozy Mysteries Book 1)

by Patti Larsen


PEACE AND QUIET CAN BE MURDER!


Fiona Fleming had hoped inheriting her grandmother’s bed and breakfast and returning home to quiet Reading, VT would be a welcome escape from the city life in New York and her cheating ex-boyfriend. She figured the most excitement she’d face would be making beds, pesky customers and the awful stench coming from her grandmother’s ornery pug, Petunia. Instead, she finds herself elbow-deep in clogged toilets, the town blackmailer floating belly-up in her fish pond and she’s the prime suspect.

She's soon looking for answers in the seedy-side of the tiny town and winds up in dangers she never even faced in the city. While she is surrounded with help from the odd cast of characters in this bizarre town, she’s not sure who she can trust. Her back-up, however, consists of her flighty yet fashionable childhood friend, her grandmothers nosy neighbor and her beloved father who seems to have secrets of his own. Then there’s the buried treasure she can’t figure out and how to get her mind off of how great the new sheriff’s backside looks in his uniform.

Can Fiona uncover the truth before the handsome sheriff puts her behind bars instead of asking her out?

Book 1 in the Fiona Fleming Cozy Mystery series!
Can be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed more as part of the series.

A light, cozy mystery read with a reluctant dog loving female inn owner, in a small town setting with quirky characters.

Sunset at Catoctin Creek: A Sweet, Small Town Romance

by Natalie Keller Reinert


Opposites find their missing piece, in this emotional and sweet country romance.

Rosemary Brunner doesn’t like change. She’s been living on the family farm where she grew up for her entire life. Sure, her friends worry she’s slowly heading towards full-fledged hermit status, but she likes it just fine, thanks. Although, she thinks, maybe she should consider a big dog to bark at strangers knocking on her door late at night. Who wanders up a stranger’s driveway at this time of evening?

Stephen Beckett doesn’t like the dark. His stay in the backwoods outside the village of Catoctin Creek, Maryland, has lasted entirely too long. The moment he can get back to his life in NYC, he’ll say a little prayer of thanks to the city that never sleeps. Of course, right now, he can’t even find his way back to his late father’s house. Lost, again, on these winding country roads! It’s enough to make a man long for a late-night subway home.

Rosemary doesn’t expect her life to change the moment she opens the door to a lost stranger. And Stephen never expected to lose his heart to a shy woman with a spitfire temper. But when these two meet on the front porch of Rosemary’s farmhouse, they know their lives will never be the same.

And now that they’ve been thrown together, there are a thousand reasons for them to split apart. Stephen wants to develop the neighboring farm; Rosemary wants her elderly neighbors to stay next door forever. Stephen plans to return to the city; Rosemary never leaves her farm. They say opposites attract…but no one ever says what holds them together. Is love really strong enough to bridge the gap between this country girl and city boy?

"The execution is for the most part charming and clever, with lively dialogue, easy pacing, and fleshed-out protagonists... Edmonds's novel evokes the magic of portal fantasies while grounding it with emotionally resonant relationships." -- Booklife

When Ashlyn discovers that Penny is being held captive, she enlists the help of a talking black rabbit and a scarlet knight to save her sister.

Ashlyn rejects an offer from the Dark Lord to remain in Summervale forever, and chooses to raise an army of knights to fight for her freedom and independence.

Penny must face a choice of her own. As Ashlyn hovers between life and death, Penny learns that Ashlyn would be a good match to provide the donor set of lungs that Penny needs to free her from the constraints of cystic fibrosis.As doctors battle to save Ashlyn's life, she leads her forces against the Dark Lord in a desperate conflict in the streets of an imaginary Manhattan--while Penny must find the answer to her own destiny in a dying circle of firelight.
