Cozy Prizes Friday: The Spirit in Question

Today we have a cozy mystery that is set in a haunted theater. Have you ever been in a dark theater all alone? It is seriously creepy! Cynthia Kuhn is visiting us this Friday with The Spirit in Question, the third book in her Academic Mystery Series. Cynthia is an Agatha Award winner for a best first novel, and if you don’t know about the Agatha’s think Emmy’s but for cozy mysteries.  So let’s meet Cynthia and don’t forget to enter her giveaway for your choice of books and a $25 Amazon gift card.

A few words with Cynthia

ck2x3How did you come with an idea for your book?

Tolliver Ingersoll is a character I loved to write who had been cut out of both of the first two books, so I decided to center The Spirit in Question on him. He is a playwright, so I began with a play, then imagined what trouble could happen at the theater and went from there.

What scene do you hope your readers enjoy the most?

I can’t name it without giving too much away. It’s supposed to be unexpected when it happens. How about: I hope they’ll enjoy multiple scenes!

What other things have you written or what projects might we see in the future?

The first two books in the Lila Maclean Academic Mystery series are The Semester of Our Discontent and The Art of Vanishing. I’ve also written fiction, poetry, and essays. In addition, I have blogged with Mysteristas and Chicks on the Case. In the future, more mysteries, I hope!

If you could write any other genre what would that be?

Mystery is my favorite genre. I do have an idea for a book that would probably be classified as fantasy.

Is there a giveaway or promotion with this book?

Yes! Thank you for asking (and thank you so much for having me on your blog). There’s a giveaway for one Lila book associated with this book tour.

Where can readers leave reviews of your book?

Most readers seem to gravitate toward Amazon, Goodreads, Library Thing, and Barnes and Noble.

Please share the link for readers to add your book on Goodreads!

About the Book

The Spirit in Question (A Lila Maclean Academic Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Henery Press (October 2, 2018)

English professor Lila Maclean knew drama would be involved when she agreed to consult on Stonedale University’s production of Puzzled: The Musical.

But she didn’t expect to find herself cast into such chaos: the incomprehensible play is a disaster, the crumbling theater appears to be haunted, and, before long, murder takes center stage.

The show must go on—yet as they speed toward opening night, it becomes clear that other members of the company may be targeted as well. Lila searches for answers while contending with a tenacious historical society, an eccentric playwright, an unsettling psychic, an enigmatic apparition, and a paranormal search squad.

With all of this in play, will she be able to identify who killed her colleague…or will it soon be curtains for Lila too?

Cozy Prizes Friday: The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller

REVIEW

She walked into my office lookin’ like a million bucks of bounced check…

Welcome to Cozy Prizes Friday and this week we have none other than Cleo Coyle and her latest, The Ghost and the Bogus Bookseller. I have to say my favorite part of this book was the resident ghost Jack and his wonderful 1950s private eye lingo! 

Be sure to enter the giveaway for your chance at a signed copy, a tote bag and $15 gift card.

About the Book


The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller (Haunted Bookshop Mystery)
Paranormal Cozy Mystery
6th in Series
Berkley (September 25, 2018)

Penelope Thornton-McClure and her bookshop’s ghost-in-residence Jack Shepard are back on a new case in this delightful paranormal mystery from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle.

A big bestseller leads to small town trouble.

Bookshop owner Penelope Thornton-McClure didn’t believe in ghosts, until she was haunted by the hard-boiled spirit of 1940s private investigator Jack Shepard. Now Jack is back on the job, and Pen is eternally grateful…

After an elegant new customer has a breakdown in her shop, Penelope suspects there is something bogus behind the biggest bestseller of the year. This popular potboiler is so hot that folks in her tiny Rhode Island town are dying to read it–literally. First one customer turns up dead, followed by another mysterious fatality connected to the book, which Pen discovers is more than just fiction. Now, with the help of her gumshoe ghost, Pen must solve the real-life cold case behind the bogus bestseller before the killer closes the book on her.

You can find the The Ghost and the Bogus Bestseller at these online retailers:

My Review 5 Stars

What a great mystery full of humor and characters you will never forget. When a bestseller titled Shades of Leather is stolen by a woman who claims it is her in the author picture, Penelope is after her and stumbles over murder, but she isn’t working alone. She is accompanied by Jack, the ghost of a dead gumshoe from the fifties who helps her out with every 1950’s expression ever written. I found myself laughing out loud! I found this book well written, funny and multilayered.

FACE THE MUSIC

Business is humming at Dodie O’Dell’s Windjammer Restaurant, where she offers theme menus connected to the Etonville Little Theatre’s amateur productions. This June, the theatre is collaborating with the neighboring Creston Players to stage Bye Bye Birdie under the stars—their first musical! There’s a contest in the play to pick a fan to receive rock idol Conrad Birdie’s last kiss before he ships off for the Army, so Dodie plans a contest to pick the food for a pre-show picnic.

But before the show opens, Ruby, the rehearsal accompanist, is found dead in her car. Why would anyone murder the crusty old gal who loved to sneak a smoke and a nip between wisecracks? Once again, the resourceful restaurant manager must play the part of amateur sleuth, accompanied by Police Chief Bill Thompson, who also happens to be her beau. Confronted with a chorus of suspects, she’ll need to stay composed to catch the killer—or it’ll be bye bye Dodie…

About the Book


Read and Gone: A Haunted Library Mystery
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series

Twenty million dollars’ worth of missing gems bring Carrie Singleton’s long-lost and larcenous dad back into her life and it’s up to Carrie to clear his name.

A devoted dad is as precious as diamonds, but Carrie Singleton wouldn’t know since her dad Jim’s been on the lam most of her life. In an unusual family reunion, she finds Jim breaking into her cottage in the middle of the night. The fun really starts when he begs her to help him recover his half of a twenty-million-dollar gem heist he pulled off with the local jeweler, Benton Parr. When she refuses, Jim takes off again.

Carrie finds her father again behind bars for the recent murder of Benton Parr. Who made the connection? Unbeknownst to her, Carrie’s boyfriend Dylan, an insurance investigator, has been searching for the gems. Determined to find the jewels herself, she starts examining every facet of Parr’s life. She turns up a treasure trove of suspects, one of whom bashes her on the head as she’s searching the victim’s country cabin.

Retreating to the quiet confines of the library where she works, Carrie watches as Smokey Joe, the resident cat, paws at a hole in the wall. Is he after the library’s ghost Evelyn, or something shinier?

Cozy Prizes Friday: Sipped

Sipped (The Penningtons Investigate)
by CT Collier

 

About the Book


Sipped (The Penningtons Investigate)
Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Asdee Press (June 11, 2018)

The Penningtons are back in book three of The Pennington’s Investigate Series by C.T. Collier. Have you ever gone into someone else’s desk drawer to find something? Uh, yeh. Me either. Looks like there’s some snooping and little bit of gossip going on in this one.

Be sure to look for the Prize Guy for your chance at a copy of Sipped. 

 

After a rough semester, Professor Lyssa Pennington just wants to post her grades and join her husband, Kyle, in Cornwall for Christmas. First, though, she’s expected to host an elegant dinner for Emile Duval, the soon-to-be Chair of Languages at Tompkins College.

Too bad no one told Lyssa murder is on the menu. And, by the way, Emile Duval is an imposter.

Who is he really? And who wanted him dead? Without those answers, the Penningtons can kiss Christmas in Cornwall goodbye.

You can find Sipped at these online retailers!

Amazon Paperback Barnes & Noble Paperback Kindle Nook

About the Author

How did you come with an idea for your book?

While the overarching framework, setting, and main characters for Sipped come from its series, The Penningtons Investigate, the concept and plot for Sipped grew from a rumor—a rather salacious one, to be honest. I’d heard the tale whispered in the hallways at one of my old workplaces, a college whose identity will not be revealed. It wasn’t a story I would use as is (did I mention it was salacious?). Gossip like that doesn’t appeal to me and doesn’t fit with the clean upbeat tone of the Pennington books.

Still, there was something at the heart of the rumor that made for a good mystery. That something was the notion of two people sneaking around someone’s old office looking for evidence left behind, to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. Who might those two people be? One was a person completely unfamiliar with the campus; and that person would need a savvy guide to find the right office, break in, and make off with the goods … all the while evading security.

And what if someone else—someone providing a distraction for the theft—was bumped off during the robbery but the thief didn’t know it? Confused? So are the police! There are almost no clues to the motive for the murder or to the identity of the murderer, but there’s an abundance of red herrings. Who but the Penningtons could possibly sort through the mess to find the real killer?

What scene do you hope your readers enjoy the most?

I love every scene in Sipped, of course, but the one I choose to read aloud at book signings comes early in the book, when Lyssa and her friend Natalie are celebrating the official end of fall semester at Tompkins College. They’re fixing dinner in Natalie’s kitchen and Natalie is going on and on about having met her idol, a supermodel named Vivienne. Lyssa thinks Natalie is pulling her leg … or maybe someone is pulling Natalie’s leg. It’s all good fun, but Lyssa’s skepticism is blinding her to some serious clues the author is setting up for attentive readers to discern.

What other things have you written or what projects might we see in the future?

I do have a completed romance series, Lakeside Porches, that is actually the entire backstory for the main characters of The Penningtons Investigate, including Lyssa and Kyle Pennington’s love story (Waking Up to Love, written as Katie O’Boyle, released by Soulmate Publishing, Inc.).

There are several spinoff series on the drawing board, including one romantic suspense series. Right now, though, my focus is on The Penningtons Investigate. I’m currently writing book 4, Chugged, and there will be at least two more after Chugged.

If you could write any other genre what would that be?

I love a good romance and a gripping romantic suspense!

My favorite romance series is Mariah Stewart’s Chesapeake Diaries. Every book in the series is a gem, and I love watching Grace’s story unfold through the diary entries she writes with each book. For romantic suspense, Carla Neggers is my idol. I started with Declan’s Cross, one of the Sharpe and Donovan series; now my book buddies and I eagerly await each new book in the series. Every one of Neggers’ series—some are romance, some romantic suspense—has its own flavor, and I enjoy many of them. Of her romance series, I especially like the Swift River books.

Is there a giveaway or promotion with this book?

Yes, several of the blogs on the “Escape With Dollycas Into a Good Book” tour for Sipped include giveaways, and there is a giveaway that spans all the blogs on the tour. Prize is the reader choice’s: Kindle, Nook, or print copy of Sipped (US only for print, please).

Where can readers leave reviews of your book?

I would love for readers to post a review to Amazon or Barnes & Noble, their choice. Here are some helpful links:

And here’s the link for readers to add Sipped to their Goodreads! https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/40607107-sipped

 

C. T. Collier was born to solve logic puzzles, wear tweed, and drink Earl Grey tea. Her professional experience in cutthroat high tech and backstabbing higher education gave her endless opportunity to study intrigue. Add to that her longtime love of mysteries, and it’s no wonder she writes academic mysteries that draw inspiration from traditional whodunits. Her setting is entirely fictional: Tompkins College is no college and any college, and Tompkins Falls is a blend of several Finger Lakes towns, including her hometown, Seneca Falls, NY (AKA Bedford Falls from It’s a Wonderful Life).

Honolulu landlord Wilson McKenna can smell a scam from across the room. So when one of his tenants loses everything in a work-at-home scam involving a new perfume, he’s shocked. With his wedding just weeks away, McKenna has to make a tough decision. Does he evict a woman who’s down on her luck? Or take time out from wedding planning to help his tenant?

Turning the case over to his PI-in-training friend Chance Logan seems like the perfect solution—until Chance tells McKenna he needs a wingman for a visit to fragrance entrepreneur Skye Pilkington-Winchester. McKenna’s sure he can keep everyone happy by helping Chance this one time. But nothing is ever as easy as it seems, and soon McKenna’s up to his board shorts in hot water. His tenant’s simple fragrance scam might involve industrial espionage, Skye’s assistant is murdered, and McKenna’s bride-to-be accuses him of having cold feet.

As McKenna and Chance dig deeper, it seems so much of what they’re being told doesn’t pass the sniff test. And the only way to get his life back is to find the dead girl’s missing boyfriend, unmask a killer, and finish up in time for the wedding. Other than that, it’s just another day in paradise.

Amazon B&N

And now we welcome Wilson McKenna, the star of Trouble in Paradise Series…

Please tell us about your latest adventure.

I assume you’re talking about the whole debacle with my tenant Grace Takahashi and how she lost money to a scammer, not about my upcoming nuptials. That’s certainly going to be an adventure, but the real action came about when Grace told me she’d been cleaned out in one of those work-from-home scams.

Things got ugly when my buddy Chance Logan and I started following up on a lead. One thing led to another and the next thing you know we were investigating some girl’s murder. That all happened because Grace got a little greedy and thought she could make some quick bucks.

Do you have any friends/sidekicks helping you out?

Chance Logan is my sidekick in this adventure, as he has been in the last few. We also got an able assist from our girlfriends. Benni Kapono is my bride-to-be and she’s good friends with Chance’s girlfriend Lexie. When they put their heads together, they’re a formidable team.

Do you have any special skills to fight crime?

I’m a former skip tracer, so I was used to finding people who didn’t want to be found. But my strongest skill is my unwillingness to let things go. Some people say I’m like a dog with a bone. The problem with that analogy is that I can’t bark.

Are you a full-time detective or do you do something else?

I’m only a part-time sleuth. Although you’d never know it from the number of murders my friends and I keep stumbling across. My real job is being the apartment manager for the Sunsetter Apartments in Honolulu. It’s a sweet little gig that doesn’t take a lot of time—please don’t tell the owners I said that!

What are you most frightened of in this story?

The thing that scares me most in this story is Skye Pilkington-Winchester. You see, Skye’s a bit of a barracuda when it comes to men and really likes my friend Chance. If she sinks her teeth into him and he does something stupid, his girlfriend Lexie will be crushed, Benni will go ballistic, and I might as well go sit on a volcano and wait for the fires to settle down.

Is there anything funny that happens to you or another character in this story?

There’s always something funny going on in these adventures. I don’t plan it that way—well, maybe my writer does. Anyway, at one point I get kidnapped by an old geezer named Steward Johnson. He takes me on a wild ride through the streets of Honolulu as we’re trying to track down a bad guy. Personally, I wasn’t happy about the whole thing. And that’s why I’m planning a little revenge trip on my writer. I’m looking for drivers. The crazier the better.

If I were to choose an actor or actress to play your part in a movie, who would that be? Do you see any other characters in your story as actors or actresses that our readers might know?

You’d probably want to choose George Clooney for my part. That’s not because of any physical resemblance—well, there is a vague one. He’s male, so am I. We’ve both got some gray hair. And he’s…nope, that’s about it. Anyway, I like his timing, the way he knows how to deliver a line and make the audience laugh.

Do you have other mysteries you would like to tell us about? Is this the first book in the series, or have you cracked a few other cases?

I’ve had a number of other cases. Things began with Photo Finish. That was a low point in my life and I was pretty grumpy. Things were turning around for me by the time Chance and I jumped on the Honolulu Hottie case. That was where we first met Skye and Chance nearly—well, you know.

Do you have any final words you would like to leave with our readers?

Final words? You mean like a parting shot? And here I thought I’d been on my best behavior. Let’s try this—my writer can be a real slave driver at times. He keeps me busy with solving all these murders when I should be sitting back and enjoying life. But since I have to solve so many crimes, why shouldn’t my fans enjoy them? Imagine that—me, with fans.

Let’s give your author a chance to speak. Anything you would like to add?

McKenna seems to have forgotten who created him. However, I can understand a guy who’s living in paradise getting a bit testy over having to fight crime so often. And while I’ve got a moment, I’d like to mention that I also write the Seaside Cove Bed & Breakfast Mystery series featuring B&B owner Rick Atwood and his precocious ten-year-old daughter Alex—who also likes sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong (murder cases!).
