Lexie Starr, the 50-year-old, newly married co-owner of a B&B, needs something to keep her busy during the off-season. Filling in for the head librarian, Bertha Duckworthy, seems the perfect choice.
Until she finds "Ducky" hanged from the library's rafters.

Seattle, WA: Philanthropist Murdered, Rapella Ripple Investigates in Rip Your Heart Out, a Ripple Effect Cozy Mystery by Jeanne Glidewell

While celebrating their fiftieth wedding anniversary on an Alaskan cruise, Rip experiences a serious cardiac event that results in a triple-bypass. Of course, the hospital is just the beginning; the Chartreuse Caboose isn’t the best place to recuperate and heal. His cardiac care nurse, Sydney Combs, has the perfect solution: her recently deceased aunt's home.

The Ripples move into the ancient Victorian mansion free of charge for the next two months. Mabel Trumbo bequeathed the home to the heart center to be used as temporary housing for heart patients' families, but it’s not quite up to snuff, which offers a great project to distract Rapella.

When an anonymous tip leads the police to suspect Sydney of murdering her aunt, Rapella's determined to exonerate Sydney. Despite several individuals with dubious intentions, a mouthy cockatoo and a huge St. Bernard to tend to, along with a house that seems possessed by evil spirits, Rapella can’t help but get wrapped up in this newest mystery.

Don't miss Rapella's heart-healthy recipe, Garlic-Roasted Salmon & Brussels Sprouts along with a special dessert, featured at the end of the story. When you make the Salmon & Brussels Sprouts, be sure to heed the warning!

From The Publisher: The Ripple Effect series will be enjoyed by fans of Joanne Fluke, Madison Johns, Ceecee James and readers of cozy mysteries who enjoy light-hearted, clean & wholesome, mysteries featuring female amateur sleuths and senior citizens.

"In a world that views aging and senior citizens obsolete, it is refreshing to read A Ripple Effect Cozy Mystery series by Jeanne Glidewell." ~Cindy Travis, Reviewer

"It is not often a book makes me laugh aloud but Jeanne Glidewell never disappoints . . ." ~Yvonne P., Reviewer

"I hope this series continues. Being Rip and Rapellas' age I am happy to see them featured in adventures. I can recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, cozy or not." ~Anna, Reviewer

When Jayne Wilson’s mother is accused of murder, Jayne and Gemma have to eliminate the impossible to reveal the true killer.

Legendary stage and movie star Sir Nigel Bellingham arrives on Cape Cod to star in a stage production of The Hound of the Baskervilles put on by the West London Theater Festival. When Sir Nigel, some of the cast, and the director visit the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop at 222 Baker Street, Gemma Doyle realizes that Sir Nigel is not at all suited to the role. He is long past his prime and an old drunk to boot. The cast, in particular the much younger actor who previously had the role, are not happy, but the show must go on.

Before the play opens, Leslie Wilson, mother of Gemma’s best friend Jayne, arranges a fundraising afternoon tea to be catered by Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room. The tea is a huge success, but when it’s time to leave, Sir Nigel has gone missing—only to be found at the bottom of the rocky cliff, dead. Along with the dead body, Gemma finds evidence incriminating Leslie Wilson. When the police, in the presence of handsome detective Ryan Ashburton and suspicious detective Louise Estrada, focus their attention on Leslie despite the numerous other suspects, the game is once again afoot and it’s again up to the highly perceptive Gemma and the ever-confused but loyal Jayne to clear Jayne’s mother’s name.

Fans of Miranda James and Kate Carlisle, and Sherlockians everywhere will delight at The Cat of the Baskervilles, the clever third Sherlock Holmes Bookshop mystery.
