Linda Reilly

Armed with a degree in Criminal Justice, Linda Reilly once contemplated a career in law enforcement. But life took a twist, and instead she found her niche in real estate closings and title examination, where the dusty tomes in the Registry of Deeds enticed her into solving mysteries of a different sort.

Raised in a sleepy town in the Berkshires, Linda's a dyed-in-the-wool New Englander. A member of Sisters in Crime and Mystery Writers of America, she lives in southern New Hampshire with her husband, who affectionately calls her "Nose-in-a-Book." When she's not pounding away at her keyboard, she can usually be found prowling the shelves of a local bookstore or library hunting for a new adventure.

Nikki Knight
"Razor-sharp prose, a spunky and savvy protagonist, and a cast of captivating characters make this lively entry into the world of mysteries a sure-fire success!"
Murder in the Crooked Eye Brewery (2018)
(Marcie Rayner Mystery, book 1)
J C Eaton
"More satisfying than a stein full of ale on a sweltering summer day, Murder in the Crooked Eye Brewery is an absolutely delectable read. I loved hanging out with neophyte PI Marcie Rayner while she hunted down suspects, sifted out the red herrings, and fended off her interfering mother. With more twists and turns than an upside-down rollercoaster, this deftly-plotted mystery is a welcome addition to the female PI genre!"
