Feeling Cozy?

August 5, 2022

My first mystery series launches November 2nd with the first book in the Shop ‘Round the World series, A Santa Stabbing. Pre Order the ebook now. Print will be available closer to November. Shop ‘Round the World is a cozy mystery series, meaning there is no graphic or gory violence on the page, and any romance is sweet. Angel Warren, a retired Navy pilot, certainly has a romantic interest in Nate, the silver fox barista at Latte Love,  Stonebridge, PA’s coffee shop. But this is a murder mystery, which means a dead body! Interested? Check out this excerpt.
