The Trouble with Truth (A Gourmet Cat Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Setting – California
Lyrical Underground (August 28, 2018)
Paperback: 182 pages
ISBN-10: 1516103025
ISBN-13: 978-1516103027
Kindle ASIN: B078LQWPPQ

Things are looking up for single mom Colbie Summers. After relocating back to her California hometown with her adolescent son and taste-testing feline, Trouble, she’s ready to take her gourmet cat food company to the next level. Until helping a teenager gets Colbie mixed up in a fresh case of murder…

Trying to balance her hectic family life with her growing business—including a coveted contract with the local organic food store—leaves Colbie scrambling to keep all her balls in the air. But when a Sunnyside resident is found dead in his garage, she takes on a new role: harboring a suspected killer.

The eighteen-year-old murder suspect, a former foster kid and Colbie’s part-time chef, had a powerful motive to snuff out the high-profile businessman. The real question is, who didn’t? Sifting through the victim’s sordid history unearths a cat’s cradle of crimes, including money laundering and abuse. Now, to clear an innocent girl’s name, Colbie must sniff out the truth before a killer who smells trouble goes on the attack again.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Colbie Summer’s gourmet cat food business is really taking off. She is planning for the big day when her products debut at a local organic food chain. She has even hired a new part-time chef. Eighteen-year-old Mira Bellamy grew up in the foster system and was abused. She is trying to make enough money to purchase a car and go to college. Not only is she working for Colbie, she has 3 other jobs too. She has also written a play about her life in foster care and received an award to have it produced.

On the homefront, Colbie’s son Elliot gets a surprise when his father, Richard Winston III, decides he does want to meet his son after all. Both mother and son are nervous about what this can mean.

Then Mira’s foster dad is murdered and because of her play, Mira is the police’s prime suspect. The truth hurts but Colbie knows that Mira is not a killer. While handling everything else, Colbie starts asking questions. Questions that make the real murderer burning mad and Detective Norma Chiron nervous about the target she has put on herself.

In this second installment, Colbie and Elliot have settled into her father’s house and they are all getting along so well. Colbie’s budding romance is growing too. The character that stole my heart was Mira. Life after being aged out of the foster system is hard but Mira has goals and is working so hard to reach them. Her play is amazing and it translated onto the pages and into my mind perfectly. I applaud the author for making this part of this story. Shining a light on the bad and the good, without hitting readers over the head or getting too dark.

The mystery part of the story really was well-written and believable. The victim had a number of people that could have killed him. Colbie’s actions had me engaged and scared for her at times. Twists sent the story in many different directions before the real culprit was revealed.

I really enjoy the way the author has let her characters develop but still has left them room to grow. The story is well balanced with the drama of the mystery and drama of normal family life. Humor was added in all the right places thanks to Trouble the cat and a certain bunny rabbit.

Ms. Krevat has written a very entertaining story. I am looking forward to visiting these characters again.

Killer Green Tomatoes (A Farm-to-Fork Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Setting – Idaho
Lyrical Underground (July 3, 2018)
Paperback: 182 pages
ISBN-10: 151610384X
ISBN-13: 978-1516103843
Kindle ASIN: B078LJPT23

The time seems ripe for success as Angie Turner opens her farm-to-table restaurant in her Idaho hometown—until her new tomato supplier is accused of murder and Angie has to pick the real killer . . .

To Angie, nothing tastes more like summer than her Nona’s fried green tomatoes. Eager to add the recipe to the menu at the County Seat, she’s found the perfect produce supplier—her sous chef Estebe’s cousin, Javier. Just one problem: ladies’ man Javier’s current hot tomato Heather has turned up dead, and he’s the prime suspect. Somehow, between managing her restaurant and navigating a romantic triangle between Estebe and Ian, the owner/manager of the farmer’s market, Angie needs to produce evidence to clear Javier—before this green tomato farmer gets fried . . .

Dollycas’s Thoughts

I have never been a fan of fried green tomatoes but I am a fan of this story.

Angie Turner’s farm to fork restaurant is becoming a big success. She wants to add her Nona’s fried green tomatoes to her menu and sous chef, Estebe Blackstone, tells her he has the perfect supplier, his cousin, Javier. Estebe takes her to his farm to check things out. Javier is not what she suspected, he’s a bit of a “player”, a flirt, thinks he God’s gift to women,  but his produce is fantastic so she places her first order. Shortly thereafter, Javier’s current girlfriend is dead and he is the police’s #1 suspect. He begs Angie to help him clear his name. She doesn’t want to get involved but again she ends up right in the middle of the investigation.

We meet more of Estebe and Javier’s family and Angie’s steps up to take care of her elderly neighbor while her granddaughter takes a vacation. Mrs. Potter is not a very happy houseguest and adds more stress to Angie’s life. I applaud Angie, she kept her wits about her and her sense of humor. I don’t think I would have handled things half as well. As for the Blackstone family, they are planning for the Basque Festival in Boise. It is a very important event for the family. Estebe has taken the week off from the restaurant and has invited all the staff to come for a special breakfast.

I don’t know how Ms. Cahoon packs so much into these pages. The characters are well defined including Dom, Angie’s growing St. Bernard puppy, Mabel, a black and white chicken and Precious, the goat. The mystery is well plotted out and the setting is wonderfully described. The romance between Ian and Angie is comfortable and doesn’t overtake the mystery. The pace is quick too. I was unable to set the book down, I read it all in one sitting.

I am really enjoying this new series from Lynn Cahoon. I am excited for One Potato, Two Potato, Dead coming March 19, 2019.

Disorderly Conduct (A Maggie McDonald Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
4th in Series
Lyrical Underground (July 10, 2018)
Print Length: 233 pages
ASIN: B076GNYKM8

Professional organizer Maggie McDonald manages to balance a fastidious career with friends, family, and a spunky Golden Retriever. But add a fiery murder mystery to the mix, and Maggie wonders if she’s finally found a mess even she can’t tidy up . . .

With a devastating wildfire spreading to Silicon Valley, Maggie preps her family for a rapid evacuation. The heat rises when firefighters discover the body of her best friend Tess Olmos’s athletic husband—whose untimely death was anything but accidental. And as Tess agonizes over the whereabouts of her spouse’s drop-dead gorgeous running mate, she becomes the prime suspect in what’s shaping up to become a double murder case. Determined to set the record straight, Maggie sorts through clues in an investigation more dangerous than the flames approaching her home. But when her own loved ones are threatened, can she catch the meticulous killer before everything falls apart?

Praise Disorderly Conduct (A Maggie McDonald Mystery)
by Mary Feliz

Disorderly Conduct is in a cozy mystery class all by itself and I highly recommend it.
~The Power of Words

I found Disorderly Conduct to be nicely written and to have a quick pace.
~The Avid Reader

The emotions that I felt while reading this book were very strong . . . I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.
~MJB Reviewers

What I most enjoyed were the characters – unique, human, and realistic responses of the teens to the initial tragedy, as well as the dangers they encounter on the trail.
~Christa Reads and Writes

I really enjoyed this book and as always Maggie is one of those characters that you just come to love.
~Bibliophile Reviews

The ending is quite explosive and really intense. I loved learning about the swat team and other law enforcement agencies involved. I didn’t expect how in depth the mystery went. I was so engrossed in it, I didn’t want it to end.
~Texas Book-aholic

Great character development, a well thought out mystery, and family theme that really warms the heart. Great for fans of the genre.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

It has all the components that I love in a book…great characters, a great storyline, and my favorite, a dog!!!!
~Devilishly Delicious Book Reviews
