Long time no writing, eh? I’ve missed getting on here and being able to write all about cozies and the different things about reading that I used to. This sort of fell to the wayside along with my Instagram when I got pregnant and I became exhausted all of the time! Ha!
I have been working on getting back up and running on my Youtube channel. I am starting to become way more active again towards the end of my pregnancy.
So let us get into the real reason you are reading my blog. New Cozy Mystery Releases for June 2020! To get all of my thoughts and to see Cleo the Cat click on the thumbnail and watch the video!

The only thing Hana loves more than a good cuppa is finding a delicate porcelain treasure to add to her collection. She’s usually on the hunt for teacups but when she spots a rare wolf figurine at a local yard sale, she knows it’s her lucky day. Hana also knows the wolf is valuable and tells the seller that he’s charging too little for it. His reaction is peculiar–he says he received the wolf from someone he doesn’t trust and he just wants it out of his life.
Hana is inspecting her new prize when she finds a tiny microchip attached to the bottom of the porcelain wolf. When she shows the figure to her police detective boyfriend, Erik, Hana is shocked to learn that the chip is actually a tracking device. They decide to confront the seller about the sneaky sale but when they arrive at his house, they find him dead. Erik and Hana now must hunt a calculating killer who has no intentions of crying wolf when it comes to murder…

Of course, when Carla turns up dead, Violet gets little sympathy from the police as suspect #1.
But the shock of two policemen showing up at her door pales in comparison to the sudden appearance of her estranged mother Fiona and a surprise sister, Zoe. What Fiona reveals will rock her world and her sense of self—and reawaken her long-dormant mysterious power. Good thing. She’s gonna need it . .
