June Is for Mysteries!

We have another set of cozy mystery repacks coming available in June.

California Capers by Dana Mentink

At first glance, Finny, California, looks like any other coastal tourist village, but for resident Ruth Budge, the kaleidoscope of zany Finny citizens keeps her on the lookout for trouble. Trouble finds her first, though, as two gruesome discoveries nearly push Ruth to the edge of her sanity. With one mystery to rest Ruth heals from losing her husband and forms a new love, but will the evil she senses along the way remain forever buried under the Finny fog? Then one would think pregnancy at forty-eight might be cause enough for worry...until another body surfaces in the shadow of Finny's Nose and Ruth is once again forced into the role of sleuth.

Dana will join us as a guest blogger on June 8.

Nosy in Nebraska by Mary Connealy

Maxie, the World's Largest (Stuffed) Field Mouse, must come through time and again to thwart the criminals in his peaceful-albeit mouse-obsessed-hometown of Melnik, Nebraska. Carrie Evans, hates mice and loves the big city, do why has she returned to her dinky hometown and taken up residence in an infested house? Museum curator Bonnie Simpson is attacked while at work in the proud home of Maxie. Can she believe the guy's claim to have never before seen-let alone murdered-the person in Bonnie's storeroom? Attorney Tyler Simpson thinks he's found a home in Melnik, but will he be run out of town when he's forced to defend the town's nemesis as her court-appointed attorney?

See Mary's comments about this book and how it relates to her granddaughter here on Petticoats and Pistols blog.

Since you missed Mary's book drawing at P&P, I'll do a drawing here. Winner gets BOTH books, so post your email address before Tuesday the 2nd.

Don't enter me into the drawing because I already have the books. Just wanted to point out that I've seen the cozy mystery repacks at Walmart. I got so excited seeing them on the shelves! Also, you can't beat the price, either! It's kind of cool!

I cannot pass up a Mary Connealy book! That gal rocks! And I have heard so much about her mouse phobias that I really MUST read her cozies!

I agree with Myra. Passing on a Mary Connealy book is like passing on chocloate. Both should make you certifiably insane!!

Mary is the best!

Jenny, the 3rd story did not get released to the club, so it is brand new.
