Hammers and Homicide (2024)
(Hometown Hardware Mystery, book 1)
Paula Charles
"Paula Charles hits the nail on the head with this intriguing series debut. Despite her daughter's doubts, sixty-something hardware store owner Dawna Carpenter doesn't have a screw loose, at least nothing that prevents her from chiseling away the doubts about who murdered a local developer and left his body on her property. Cozy mystery fans of Kate Carlisle and Sarah Graves will delight in a new addition to the home improvement-plus-murder subgenre."
Sniffing Out Murder (2023)
(Bailey the Bloodhound Mystery, book 1)
Kallie E Benjamin
"Kallie Benjamin's fictional middle-grade author Pris Cummings lets her protective bloodhound Bailey help sniff out who's behind the murder of a body the dog digs up in the town park. Pris, back in her hometown of Crosbyville, Indiana to pursue her writing career, is a determined and loyal sleuth in this delightful new series even as romance blooms, suspense mounts, another body drops, and Pris works to keep her dog and her beloved circle of humans safe. A must read!"
