Betrayal, murder, and elitist liars. Never a dull moment in the art world.


Aspiring artist Jayden Carmichael loves her Manhattan life. She’ll willingly work way too many shifts at a coffee shop to sustain it, put up with her boyfriend dismissing her manga-inspired art, and drown her sorrows in cosplaying and anime collectibles. No one’s life is perfect, right?


When a murder sends Jayden’s world into a tailspin, everything she thought she had turns out to be a big, fat lie. Slap a mean detective and an impending murder charge on top of that, and Jayden is forced to turn amateur sleuth to prove her innocence.


With a best friend ready to provide a shoulder to cry on and a place to retreat and regroup, her famous father’s unwanted help, and her own wits, Jayden might just avoid a jail sentence.


Murderous Affair is the prequel to the Riverbrook Geeky Cozy Mysteries series. If you love artsy female sleuths and murder mysteries, then you’ll enjoy this novella.


Grab your copy of Murderous Affair to find out if Jayden finds the killer before NYPD’s finest lock her up and throw away the key.

'Tis the season to be jolly - and for Meg Langslow to round up stray animals of all sorts as well as a killer. Duck the Halls!

The brilliantly funny Donna Andrews delivers boughs of holly and barrels of laughs with Meg's latest adventure in her award-winning, New York Times bestselling series. A few nights before Christmas, Meg is awakened when volunteer fireman Michael is summoned to the New Life Baptist Church, where someone has rigged a cage full of skunks in the choir loft. The lengthy process of de-skunking the church requires its annual pre-Christmas concert to relocate to Trinity Episcopal, where Mother insists the show must go on, despite the budget-related protests of Mr. Vess, an elderly vestryman. Meanwhile, when Meg helps her grandfather take the skunks to the zoo, they discover that his boa has been stolen - only to turn up later during the concert, slithering out from the ribbon-bedecked evergreens. The next morning is Sunday, and the congregation of St. Byblig's, the local Catholic church, arrive to find it completely filled with several hundred ducks.


It's clear that some serious holiday pranksters are on the loose, and Meg is determined to find them. But before she can, a fire breaks out at Trinity, and Mr. Vess is discovered dead. Who would have murdered such a harmless - if slightly cranky - old man? Who has the time during the busy holiday season to herd all of these animals into the town's churches? And will Meg ever be able to finish all of her shopping, wrapping, cooking, caroling, and decorating in time for Christmas Eve? A Yuletide treasure for the ages, Duck the Halls is guaranteed to put the "ho ho hos" into readers' holidays.

Now with an excerpt from Donna Andrews' next Meg Langslow holiday mystery How the Finch Stole Christmas!, available in October 2017.
