Twice Baked Murder: A Cozy Mystery (The Rita Reincarnated Cozies Book 1) by Daphne DeWitt

Rita never thought much about how she was going to die.
…turns out that might have been a problem.

Two months prior to her wedding, pie maker extraordinaire and sheriff’s daughter Rita Clarke is rudely pushed down a flight of stairs by an unseen man with a burly voice and meaty hands. And that was the last thing that ever happened to her.

Until now.

Two years after her untimely demise, Rita returns to her small town of Second Springs with a brand new body, a dusty red pickup truck, a guardian angel named Charlie, an aloof Irish setter that used to be the mayor, and a mission to solve a string of murders (including her own) before she can move on.

But things in Second Springs aren’t what they used to be. Rita’s fiancé is now engaged to her former best friend, her father has been outed as town sheriff, and his replacement is irritatingly cocky and sure that Rita is hiding something.

When a young man is murdered on Rita’s first night back, she finds a wrench at the scene of the crime; the same thing she saw before her own murder.

Now Rita must try to work through the craziness of her new life, coexist with her ex friend and fiancé, and dodge the ever encroaching eye of the new sheriff if she’s going to stand a chance of catching the person responsible and moving on.

And you thought death was the end of all the fun!

Lover’s Refuge (The Hemocil Society Book 3) by Ruthie L Manier

James the youngest of the Mantango clan needs his four brothers’ assistance and as always they’re armed and ready to defend their kin.

James fell hard for Mariah appearing before him so close he could kiss her full, sassy, lips smelling of cotton candy. Her stance is proud with the luscious body of a goddess. She’s covered from head to toe in a sheer body glove sprinkled with gold dust, darker gold in the more private areas making it hard for him to cast his eyes off her. He craved her from first sight, beautiful and feisty the perfect combination for a Va’atacos male.

Learning of her terrible past life, he has a burning desire to rescue Mariah and her daughter and won’t stop until the deed is done. He lost her once and now that she’s returned he swore he’d cross hell to fight the devil himself, before releasing her again.

Mariah didn’t reincarnate from the heavenly realm to find James in lust with the woman whose corpse she transferred into. Nor to discover that James rescued her child, Peach, only to be brutally attacked by the family responsible for her mortal death. Can she set her feelings aside long enough to reclaim a relationship with her daughter, bring the McCurry clan to justice, and rekindle the spark; she fears James might have lost for her?

From the Author: Lover’s Refuge was a fun book for me to write. Using Northern State Psychiatric Hospital was the idea of two of my co-workers. It was the perfect place for James the youngest of the Mantango brothers to go and heal, while him and his brothers set a plan to get their vengeance. It’s a historical land mark here in Sedro Woolley, Washington off of Fruit dale and Highway 20. If you ever get out this way you should go and tour the grounds and walk through the many paths, barns, and graveyard as the patients and the workers there did. It’s said to be haunted and every time I’ve went out there alone I swear someone is watching me.

Lover’s Salvation (The Hemocil Society Book 2) by Ruthie L Manier

A witch on the run…

After Issy’s car broke down and she was forced to walk for miles to reach the nearest town, she practically fell into the Shitkick Bar out of the sweltering, Washington heat. Moisture glistened her delicate skin, her cheeks flushed a pale pink. She heaved huge gulps of air from the A/C above her head as though starving for the coolness it would bring. She leaned against the door as it creaked shut behind her, long, slim, parted legs barely held her small frame up. Her eyelashes fluttered down upon her skin As she brushed her damp hair out of her lovely face. Issy had no idea a room full of people witnessed her every move as she clung to to the door singing out the word, “Hallelujah.”

A Va’atacos on vacation…

Marcus realized the beauty was in trouble from first glance. A woman on the run and in crucial need of blood. Her hunger filled the crowded room, weakness abundant throughout her slowed motions. Not good. If he sensed the woman’s thirst, so did everyone else in the room. Marcus gathered she didn’t possess much time before she collapsed to the floor, her mind slipping into the darkness. Without warning an overwhelming need came over him to help and protect this woman. From that moment on he vowed to defend her, no matter the cost.
