LORD JAMES HARRINGTON AND THE WINTER MYSTERY (Lord James Harrington Mysteries Book 1)

by Lynn Florkiewicz

A cosy, amateur sleuth mystery:

SweetMysteryBooks.com says: A traditional British cozy mystery that requires a cup of tea or a glass of sherry, a warm blanket and friend or two to discuss it with.

CozyMysteryBookReview.com says: This is an interesting cozy with full bodied characters both likeable and those you would avoid like the plague. Get involved in the lives of the residents of the Village of Cavendish in West Sussex. You will be glad you did. CozyMysteryBookReview.com

Meet Lord James Harrington and his delightful wife, Beth; residents of the tiny village of Cavendish, deep in the heart of West Sussex in England. They adore hosting seasonal events, running their country hotel, keeping the local folklore alive and listening to the latest murder mystery on the wireless. But mysteries don’t always remain on the airwaves………

It’s 1957 and James and Beth are discussing the latest Cavendish Players production, The Devil Incarnate, when their cleaner voices her concern over missing farmer, Alec Grimes. When James finds Grimes dead, he is certain of foul play. But the doctor confirms natural causes and even good friend Detective Chief Inspector George Lane dismisses his suspicions. So James decides to put his own sleuthing skills to the test.

Delving into Grimes’ affairs, it soon becomes clear that not all is what it seems. What are the strange symbols discovered on the floorboards at Grimes’ farm? Who attacked the new vicar on Halloween? Why was Grimes disliked by so many villagers? What are the mysterious pieces of china? Whose body is found on Guy Fawkes Night?

With so many suspects, all with motive and opportunity – will James be able to solve the mystery? Or will his meddling put him and his wife in mortal danger.

The first four cosy novels (Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn) are offered at a low price as this is my first attempt at the genre I love. Hope you enjoy them.



Viaticum (Daniel Wolfe Mysteries Book 1)

by J. L. Spence

Father Daniel Wolfe, burnt out from investigating the most heinous of acts committed within the mysterious cloisters of the Catholic Church, is called by police to the scene of a crime. There, on the floor before the altar of a Miami sanctuary, lay the body of a man. A policeman. His brother.

Driven by the need to find his brother’s killer, and to pull his own soul from the shadows of the world he investigates, Daniel finds himself surrounded by men he cannot trust… and one of them is trying to kill him.

(This book contains one complete murder mystery, and the first part of an ongoing investigation into organized crimes perpetrated under cover of church authority. The series continues with “Timidus,” due for release in 2015.)



Unturned Stones

by Scott Prussing

Violence strikes without warningâ??and seemingly without reason. An elderly woman is assaulted in her home. The unseen intruder slices her hand off at the wrist, then applies a tourniquet and dials 911 before leaving. An Asian jogger is sprayed with Mace from behind a bush. While the victim is blinded, the assailant breaks his leg with a baseball bat. Finally, a young black transsexual has her breast burned by an assailant who first knocked her unconscious. Though gruesome and mystifying, there seems to be nothing to connect the attacks.

Star detective Robert Foster has been forced to resign from the San Diego Police Department for what his superiors labeled “insubordination.” Foster prefers to call it “thinking outside the box.” Either way, his days on the force are overâ??until he makes a surprising discovery. While surveying crime reports provided to him by his former partner, Foster stumbles across the three assaults. As he looks more closely at the details, he recognizes something his former colleagues have missed – these attacks are SO completely different that they have to have been planned that way. But why?

Intrigued by the paradox and by the challenge, Foster launches an unofficial investigation. As the violence escalates and the assaults begin targeting people he loves, Foster finds himself pulled into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a foe who seems to be every bit as clever as he is.

Add in a beautiful blonde reporter who may not be what she seems, a brilliant psychologist happily turned homeless, a possible split personality, and clues from a Shakespearean play sent by the perpetrator, and you have Unturned Stones, a gripping novel of mystery and suspense you will not soon forget.
