A TIME TRAVEL COZY MYSTERY


Two Crimes, Two Times…

Dee Flanagan loves Irish history, bad rom-coms, and red lipstick. Dead clowns, injured time travelers, and shoot-outs don’t make it onto the small-town reporter’s Top Ten list. After the bullets stop flying in Dunleagh Castle’s courtyard, it’s up to Dee to convince people she didn’t imagine a gunfight played out between two centuries.


With the body count rising, and no one willing to believe Dee’s time travel theory, she’s forced to team up with a man who’s either a bona fide fruit cake or a police officer from the year 1919. Using her expert knowledge of the Irish War of Independence, Dee sets out to solve a century-old crime, plus a modern-day murder.

About the author

USA Today bestselling author Zara Keane grew up in Dublin, Ireland, but spent her summers in a small town very similar to the fictitious Whisper Island and Dunleagh.


She currently lives in Switzerland with her family. When she’s not writing or wrestling small people, she drinks far too much coffee, and tries—with occasional success—to resist the siren call of Swiss chocolate.

 Movies, Muffins, Murder. Read 5 Movie Club Mysteries in 1 awesome volume!

After her marriage and career collapse, ex-cop Maggie Doyle flees San Francisco for the Wild West…of Ireland. But Whisper Island and a job at the Movie Theater Café don't provide the respite she expected. When Maggie and her rock-hard muffins are hurled into a series of murder investigations, she enlists the help of her UFO-obsessed friend, a nun, and a feral dog.

This collection includes:

DIAL P FOR POISON

After the most hated woman on Whisper Island is poisoned at her aunt’s café, can Maggie catch the murderer before they strike again? Or will her terrible baking skills burn down the café first?

THE POSTMAN ALWAYS DIES TWICE

The instant Maggie and her friend discover the corpse of the Whisper Island postman, her plans to chill for the next two months are put on ice.

HOW TO MURDER A MILLIONAIRE

Armed with her newly issued private investigator's license, Maggie is on the case…of a sheep that went missing twenty-two years ago. When she trips over a dead body on the first day of the investigation, she realizes there’s more to this cold case than a fight over lamb chops.

THE 39 CUPCAKES

When Maggie chaperones a group of bratty kids to an archaeological dig, one of her charges discovers a skeleton. At first it looks like a cold case—until a member of the excavation team winds up dead…

REBEL WITHOUT A CLAUS

In the weeks before the holidays, Maggie scores a lucrative job working undercover at a fancy department store. When she finds the corpse of an obnoxious customer in her bathtub, Maggie's festive season takes a fatal turn.

***Each story includes a cocktail recipe—minus the deadly ingredients!***

“Remarkable . . . Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, exports the suspense and wit of a cleverly constructed crime caper into an exotic realm of fantasy, and the result is engagingly entertaining.”—The Times (London)
 
An orphan’s life is harsh—and often short—in the mysterious island city of Camorr. But young Locke Lamora dodges death and slavery, becoming a thief under the tutelage of a gifted con artist. As leader of the band of light-fingered brothers known as the Gentleman Bastards, Locke is soon infamous, fooling even the underworld’s most feared ruler. But in the shadows lurks someone still more ambitious and deadly. Faced with a bloody coup that threatens to destroy everyone and everything that holds meaning in his mercenary life, Locke vows to beat the enemy at his own brutal game—or die trying.
 
Praise for The Lies of Locke Lamora
 
“Fresh, original, and engrossing . . . gorgeously realized.”—George R. R. Martin
 
“Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think The Lies of Locke Lamora is probably in my top ten favorite books ever. Maybe my top five. If you haven’t read it, you should. If you have read it, you should probably read it again.”—Patrick Rothfuss, New York Times bestselling author of The Name of the Wind

“A unique fantasy milieu peopled by absorbing, colorful characters . . . Locke’s wit and audacity endear him to victims and bystanders alike.”—The Seattle Times
 
“A true genre bender, at home on almost any kind of fiction shelf . . . Lynch immediately establishes himself as a gifted and fearless storyteller, unafraid of comparisons to Silverberg and Jordan, not to mention David Liss and even Dickens.”—Booklist (starred review)
 
“High-octane fantasy . . . a great swashbuckling yarn of a novel.”—Richard Morgan
