Ileana Renfroe's debut novel A Fashionable Fate

  Welcome to debut author Ileana Renfroe who also hosts a fun Facebook page called Cozy Mystery Village that supports fellow cozy authors and readers! I was so lucky to get to beta read this book and adore the characters and the great setting fo Colten Island. In case you haven't already guessed, I loved  A Fashionable Fate, which is Book 1 in her new Rosa The Cuban Psychic Mystery series!  Who doesn't love a fashion-designing psychic with a handsome guide and a Nana who reads tarot cards? This book sets up a fun new series filled with many  twists and turns - and some great recipes in the back! It's a quick, entertaining read and I'm already awaiting Book 2! For the longest time Ileana Muñoz-Renfroe wanted to be an author. Almost twenty years later and after raising two children and owning numerous businesses, she decided to take the plunge. About a year ago as she sat in a Café in Paris the idea of Rosa popped into her head and the stories and characters became

Carmen Radtke discusses Murder Makes Waves and The Case of the Missing Bride

  Welcome to author Carmen Radtke! I just adore her 1930s inspired covers and her story of how she became an author! Carmen Radtke has spent most of her life with ink on her fingers and a dangerously high pile of books by her side. She has worked as a newspaper reporter on two continents and always dreamt of becoming a novelist. When Carmen found herself crouched under her dining table, typing away on what was to become “Walking in the Shadow” between two earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand, she realised she was hooked for life. She’s the author of the cozy historical mysteries “The Case of the Missing Bride”, “Glittering Death”, both featuring Alyssa Chalmers, the Jack Sullivan quick read “False Play at the Christmas Party” and the Jack and Frances historical cozies, “A Matter of Love and Death”, “Murder at the Races”, and “Murder Makes Waves”. She’s busy writing the next Jack and Frances adventure. When Carmen is not writing, reading or dreaming of travel, she is busy act

Round Robin Blog Fest - Merry Christmas!

  Merry Christmas!  It's been a year. Enough said about that, let's have a little fun today! Our last Round Robin Blog Fest for 2020 is always a good one.  Write a short story, flash fiction, or use an  excerpt from one of your books. One of the things I realized this year is that I only have ONE book set at Christmastime. In light of that, I pulled out a story I'd started last summer and just hadn't gone back to yet, but it's a story that wants to be told. In a light-hearted Hallmark style, it's about a single mom with two kids. Her daughter has Down's Syndrome and her son is exceptionally talented in his own way. Kennedy Fowler has inherited a family home lovingly called The Doctor's Inn and has opened it as a bed and breakfast to be able to stay home with her kids. That is how they meet Mr. Bah-Humbug, actor Shawn Kyle who is in town to perform in a show at the local theatre for the holidays. Here for your reading pleasure, is a rough version of a wor
