The stars predict a wedding-day disaster, but San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti never expected murder

Julia Bonatti is alarmed by the astrological signs looming over Geneva Leary’s wedding day, but nobody asked Julia’s opinion and being a bridesmaid means supporting the bride no matter what. Even with the foreboding Moon-Mars-Pluto lineup in the heavens, no one’s prepared for the catastrophes that strike: a no-show sister, a passed-out wedding planner, and a lethal shooting in the dead of night.

With anger and grief threatening to tear the Leary family part, Julia is determined to understand how such a terrible tragedy could occur. As she digs deeper into the family’s secrets, her astrological insights will lead her to the truth about a criminal enterprise that stretches far beyond the California coast.

Praise For All Signs Point to Murder
by Connie di Marco

This is a delightfully fun book to read!
~Valerie’s Musings

It was great to see the same characters…Julia’s friends. The author does a great job with this series.
~Sleuth Cafe

All Signs Point to Murder is a quick-paced, suspenseful, and entertaining mystery.
~The Book’s the Thing

The plot is unique and the author did a great job taking the reader on a roller coaster.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews

I have enjoyed both of Ms. di Marco’s series (Zodiac and Soup Lovers’), and All Signs Point to Murder is a worthy addition to the collection. And now I will make a prediction: Julia Bonatti, astrologer, is going to be busy for a long time!
~Back Porchervations

I was delighted with this story. Julia is a unique sleuth with her other abilities and kept me very engaged.
~Bibliophile Reviews

This is a complicated situation where putting together means, motive and opportunity takes a lot of searching.
~Laura’s Interests

I feel like a broken record when I say that I had no clue who the killer was…because it seems like I say that a lot lately! Either the authors are getting better at hiding those clues and throwing out red herrings, or my deductive skills aren’t up to snuff. I truly did not suspect this person at all and it was a huge surprise to me.

The Madness of Mercury
(A Zodiac Mystery)

Cozy Mystery
New Series
Midnight Ink (June 8, 2016)
Paperback: 312 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0738749129



San Francisco astrologer Julia Bonatti’s life is turned upside down when she becomes the target of the city’s newest cult leader, Reverend Roy of the Prophet’s Tabernacle. Driven out of her apartment in the midst of a disastrous Mercury retrograde period, she takes shelter with a client who’s caring for two elderly aunts. One aunt appears stricken with dementia and the other has fallen under the spell of the Reverend Roy. To add to the confusion, a young man claiming to be a long lost nephew arrives. The longer he stays, the more dangerous things become. Is the young man truly a member of the family? Can astrology confirm that? Julia’s not sure, but one thing she does know is that Mercury wasn’t merely the messenger of the gods—he was a trickster and a liar as well.

 Praise for The Madness of Mercury

The story is very well-written, and the characters are realistic and likable.
~Book Babble

Full of suspense and surprises…
~Laura’s Interests

It’s a truly engrossing mystery, captured me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down.

This was a fun read with an entertaining and unique main character.
~I Wish I Lived In a Library

You know from reading the blurb that there’s more than one mystery going on. The threads don’t tie together until the conclusion and it definitely keeps you guessing.

Such a charming start to a new series!!!
~Moonlight Rendezvous

Ms. di Marco serves us up one of the most chilling stories of a cult spin out of control in recent memory.
~Back Porchervations

The Madness of Mercury provides an interesting debut to what promises to be an entertaining series.
~The Bookwyrm’s Hoard

I like when cozy mysteries have unusual settings or unusual careers for the lead character and “The Madness of Mercury” certainly fit that bill.
~Bea’s Book Nook

As a main character, I liked Julia. She’s kind, caring, and very determined. She goes out of her way to help her friends and even her clients.
~Read Your Writes Book Reviews

This mystery is well-written, the characters likable and realistic, and I ended up reading it in a single sitting!
~The Book’s the Thing

A Fresh new cast of characters and a strong story line keep your interest peaked and keep you so involved in the story you won’t want to stop reading.
~Shelley’s Book Case

I really enjoyed this book and when the killer was revealed I could not have been more surprised!
