Sweet Petite Mysteries!



So I came up with an idea back in December of 2016. Why not write a series of short mysteries with a holiday theme for every month of the year. Short concentrated reads with rich mystery elements and fun themes. The only problem was TIME!

But as I soon found out, writing a 5,000 word + mystery isn't bad at all. In fact, it's kind of fun. I designed all the cover art too, and THAT'S a blast. The first three books are released and the fourth will be coming out in April. And if you're reading this post, you are getting a sneak peak at the covers all the way to June.

WANNA WIN ONE? I'm giving away the first three ebooks. Leave a comment to enter!

If you like the series, they are available on AMAZON



Teresa Moretti is confident that at the conclusion of a romantic dinner at an Italian restaurant, her boyfriend David is going to pop the question. But when he excuses himself to use the restroom and doesn't return, she suspects foul play and contacts the police. A handsome young detective takes over the case and much to his dismay, Teresa inserts herself as his sidekick.Will she find her missing fiancé or find herself in the middle of a fiasco?




When an esteemed professor of Louisiana history is found face down in a King Cake, young detective Annie Fournier suspects foul play and begins an investigation to find the person responsible. Her partner has little patience for Annie's inexperience or gender and seems to enjoy mocking her at every opportunity. And to top that off, the crazy melee of Mardi Gras seems to hamper their progress at every turn. Will they weigh in on the identity of the murderer before Fat Tuesday ends, and will Annie prove that she has what it takes to be a detective?

  5. This series sounds like a treat! I'm sure my mystery-living mom will enjoy them, too.
    I'm pretty sure I've seen you walking through The Woodlands Mall. At the time I wasn't sure why I felt like I knew you, but since I follow you on Facebook your face should be familiar. :-)

  9. Sounds like a fun idea! I've always tried to have a holiday flag in my yard and wreath on my door for each month of the year. What a great idea with novellas! I know it's still premature but will there eventually be a plan to combine them all in a single book?
    Thank you for the chance to win!
