CiP 10

Who would’ve thought that something as sweet and innocent as picking out baby furniture could lead to nearly witnessing a murder? Missy and Echo stumble upon a crime scene that leads to a tangled web of suspects for Chas to unravel.

Spencer and Janssen are back on the case, until tragedy strikes, changing one of their lives forever.

Things are heating up between mild-mannered Mortician, Timothy Eckels and his spunky assistant Fiona. Will she be able to break down the walls that he’s hidden behind since he found out that his ex-wife was a serial killer?

Bookworm Joyce wonders if she’ll be single for her entire life, and feisty Aunt Beulah vows to get her hitched, come heck or high water.

pizza 22

Eleanora Pacelli’s pleasant weekend is shattered when a horrific car accident spins right into her front yard. She reached the victim in time to hear his final words; a claim that his accident wasn’t an accident at all, but murder.
Ellie tries desperately to get to the bottom of the incident and figure out what really happened, but is stumped when all signs point away from foul play. When the evidence says one thing, but her gut and the dying words of the victim say another, what’s a gal to do?

voodoo 3

If there is one thing that Sara-Belle hates, its creepy dolls.
Unfortunately for her, it seems like that’s all anyone is talking
about in Sunken Grove, Louisiana. One man wants to buy a rare antique
doll, another woman claims that no such doll exists, and yet another
woman is hoping Belle will show a haunted doll movie at her theater.
Things get worse when a local woman is found dead, and as luck would
have it, it seems a doll is somehow involved.

Is all this talk of dolls just a coincidence, or is there a connection
between the murder, the movie, and a strange antique doll–one with
glassy blue eyes that follow you wherever you go? That’s what Belle
and her sister Anna are determined to find out in this latest spooky
cozy mystery.

ryli 7

With only a few days left until Ryli and Garrett tie the knot, everyone is focused on celebrations and wedded bliss. Unfortunately, when a killer from Aunt Shirley’s past comes calling to Granville, no one is safe from his deadly game of cat and mouse. When bodies start piling up, Garrett knows he must enlist the help of newly-licensed PI, Aunt Shirley. In between wedding preparations, PI training, and typical Aunt Shirley antics, Ryli and Garrett must come to terms with their uncertain future. A future that may or may not include Aunt Shirley if the killer isn’t captured soon.

Trusting Hank and Old Man Jenkins to hold down the fort…Garrett, Ryli, and Aunt Shirley go on a manhunt to apprehend the killer dead set on slaying Aunt Shirley and all those she holds dear. Can Garrett, Ryli, and Aunt Shirley apprehend a vicious killer from Aunt Shirley’s past, or will Old Man Jenkins become a widower before he’s ready.


New Release- Carolyn Q. Hunter!!

Valentine’s Day, the sweetest day of the year. Will Detective Harry Mannor be able to convince the reluctant Bert to go out on a date with him . . . or will murder get in the way?

Summer Prescott Books is excited to announce the release of Killer Cocoa Pie, Book 7 in the well-reviewed Pies and Pages series by Carolyn Q. Hunter!


Happy Valentine’s Day from the amazing Carolyn Q. Hunter!!!

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and much to Bertha Hannah’s surprise and delight, the Season of Love is busier than even the Christmas holiday. Overwhelmed with baking pies and making special deliveries, Bert doesn’t have any extra time for murder and other nonsense. When a young woman’s body is found stuffed away in the back storeroom of Pies and Pages, however, she’s once again thrust into the middle of a mess.

What seems, at first, to be merely a horrific accident, turns out to be far more sinister, when Bert realizes that a local corporation may have some connection to the murder. The roots of dishonesty, sabotage, money, and LOVE all seem to have ties to this most recent case. Will Bert be able to uncover the truth before Valentine’s Day, or will her business be buried in intrigue?

New Release- Patti Benning!

Summer Prescott Books is excited to annouce the release of Valentines and Murder, Book 30 in the Darling Deli Series by Patti Benning!



Happy Valentine’s Day from amazing Cozy Mystery Author Patti Benning!!

The first few weeks of Moira Darling’s new year have been promising so far. Her husband is taking steps toward focusing more on his microbrewery, she’s had some time to read and relax, and romance is brewing at the deli, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
She couldn’t be happier when David comes home one night with the news that he has found a business partner to help take some of his private investigation cases, but her enthusiasm is quickly dampened when a string of murders occurs, and each one appears to be connected to her husband and his new partner. Moira struggles to figure out who the killer is, all the while living in constant terror that her beloved husband will be the next victim.

Hi Awesome Readers and Cozy folk!!

Many of you have been asking about what happened to some of our SPBP authors, so I thought I’d try to bring you up to speed. The reason that I hadn’t been able to answer your questions before now, is that I’ve been engaged in conversations with some of them who hadn’t figured out whether they were going to continue to write any longer. Here’s what I’ve found out as of now:

Evalynn Shaw went on vacation to another country, and never returned. She thought about writing from there, but has since decided not to, so her series is finished, unless one of the other SPBP writers wants to have a go at it.

Blair Merrin received a promotion at his day job and will no longer be writing because he doesn’t have the time. Yes, Blair is a he, lol. There won’t be any subsequent Bandit Hills books, unfortunately. They are so good!!

Susie Gayle is now writing children’s books under another pen name (no, unfortunately, I don’t know it). We wish her all the best and hope that she might come back someday to write a few more books in the Pet Shop series.

And last, but certainly not least…

VALLEY SAMS!!!! She’s been busy planning and writing a brand new series, which will begin releasing within the next couple of months, and oh my whiskers, it’s gonna be a good one!!!!
