Any Port in a Storm
by Elaine Orr

Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series Book 4

Someone is breaking into the houses Jolie appraises. When she realizes a new face in town is leading high school kids into trouble in those houses, Jolie's mad and lets him know it. Hayden offers to help her mind her own business, and a lot of people at the Talk Like a Pirate Day fundraiser for the food pantry hear her give him what for.

A hurricane's on the way to disrupt Talk Like a Pirate Day. When a corpse turns up under the pirate ship the next day, Jolie's looking like a suspect.

Soon she has less work. Who wants a possible murder suspect appraising their house? Scoobie's pirate limericks can't solve a crime, so Jolie and her sometimes buddy local reporter George Winters look for the murderer and try to figure out who's trying to frame Jolie. They need to stay ahead of whoever's mad at her and off the radar of the local police who tell Jolie -- for the hundredth time -- to butt out. All this and Jolie has to deal with Aunt Madge's blossoming love life. And what about her own?

For a cozy mystery with a dose of humor and a touch of romance, join Jolie and friends in Ocean Alley.

Giving Up the Ghost
by
Marilyn Levinson

DescriptionAfter her divorce, Gabbie Meyerson moves to the sleepy town of Chrissom Harbor, Long Island, to teach English at the local high school. She settles into her rental cottage above the Long Island Sound and discovers she has a housemate--the ghost of Cameron Leeds, who used to live in the cottage. Cam insists his death was no accident, and implores Gabbie to find out who murdered him eight months ago. After she recovers from her initial shock, Gabbie agrees to investigate.

Genesis
by
Maria Michaels

DescriptionWhat happens when you move three thousand miles away but still can’t outrun the nightmare?

Deeper and Deeper
by
Gary Lindberg

DescriptionWhile pursuing gangbangers, Jamie Giles' squad car veered off the road, killing him. But then something odd happened. He came back to life. Now he has a relationship problem—with a sinister presence that is inhabiting his body. Hidden deep inside his consciousness are secrets that are taking over his life and attracting the wrong kind of company. He has only a few days left to get to the bottom of it. He’ll have to go deeper and deeper to figure it out. Trouble is, the only solution may for him to die again.

An Artist's Eye
by
Clive S. Johnson

DescriptionOn the day Prescinda leaves the fishing village of Grayden, and her marriage to a man she’s never loved, her return to the old family home of Blisteraising Farm is interrupted. A surprise visit by Nephril brings with it a strange request that he seems reluctant to explain. “I know thou hath heard talk of a distant city,” was how he broached it, which seemed more benign than his last request that she 'scare someone almost to death'. This time she was asked to help Falmeard spy out a rare sight, but one which could very well foretell the end of the realm of Dica, and thereby of existence itself.

The Dark Before Dawn
by
Laurie Stevens

DescriptionHigh in the Santa Monica Mountains near Los Angeles, grisly murders are taking place. On each of the victim's bodies a note is left for L.A. Sheriff's detective, Gabriel McRay. The killer's identity is locked in the suppressed memory of a horrifying trauma from Gabriel's own childhood. Teamed with his forensic pathologist girlfriend and his pyschiatrist, Gabriel runs two parallel investigations. The first: a dark journey into the terrifying recollections of his past and the second, the hunt for a serial killer who seems to know more about Gabriel... than he knows himself.
