The author of Bun for Your Life returns to Destiny, New York, where bakery owners and amateur sleuths Molly Tyler and Olivia Williams never crumble under pressure...
 
While the rest of Destiny is focused on the arrival of an upper crust perfume mogul, Molly is more concerned about what’s on the front page of the newspaper: her mother. Library director Anne Tyler was photographed at the most romantic restaurant in town having a cozy dinner with library advisory board member Philip Baldelli. But there’s more for Molly to worry about after Philip is found dead a few days later.
 
When Detective Sean Corsino zeroes in on Anne as a person of interest in the case, it turns down the heat on his budding romance with Molly. But after he’s injured during the course of his investigation, Molly and Olivia must step in to sift through the clues and clear Anne’s name.

In Sarah T. Hobart’s wickedly funny and fast-paced Home Sweet Home mystery series, small-town real estate agent Sam Turner discovers it’s bad for business when her clients keep dropping dead.
 
Newly armed with her real estate license, Sam Turner loves Arlinda, her quirky seaside hometown in Northern California. But life by the beach isn’t exactly a breeze: She and her teenage son, Max, are being evicted from their apartment, her long absent ex-husband unexpectedly resurfaces, and her possibly romantic relationship with sexy Chief of Police Bernie Aguilar is, well . . . complicated. All Sam wants is a quick and easy sale. What she gets instead is a killer headache—or three.
 
Sam’s trying to drum up interest in 13 Aster Lane, a rambling Victorian fixer-upper that’s more than a little neglected—and possibly haunted—so when a trio of offers arrive out of the blue, she can’t help thinking it’s too good to be true. But after a new client drops dead on the property, she fears she’s lost more than a commission. Before Sam’s out of house and home, she must unmask a killer targeting her clients, or the only property she’ll be moving will be plots—at the local cemetery.

Praise for Death at a Fixer-Upper
 
“Hilarious . . . This is an extremely entertaining mystery with a plot that grows more complex as it progresses. . . . Strong writing and realistic characters will have readers eagerly anticipating further installments of this promising, and always fun, new series. . . . Filled with dry humor [and] acerbic wit.”—Kings River Life Magazine

“Sam Turner is a wonderful breath of fresh air in the world of cozy mystery. . . . I love the way the mystery unravels and how all the pieces tie together. This wasn’t so much a whodunit, but rather more a well-crafted mystery set against the history of the house and its owners.”—I Read What You Write
 
“A delightful new series . . . fast-paced, often funny, suspenseful and intriguing . . . The mystery is well plotted and paced with plenty of suspects that kept me guessing. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.”—A Cozy Booknook
 
“[Death at a Fixer-Upper reminds] me of Marty Wingate’s books—easy to read, light, funny (even if death is the subject matter at hand) and very true to real life.”—Bless Their Hearts Mom
 
“Packed with wonderfully worded passages and some fun snarky dialogue!”—Classy Cheapskate
