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.

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?

SPBP AUTHOR UPDATE

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!!!!
