We’re planning another great week on the Suspense Sisters. Check out our posts, our interviews, and our awesome giveaways!


On Tuesday Mary Ellis will share What’s Hot in Inspirational Suspense and Mystery.

Wednesday we’ll hear from Suspense Sister Ellen Kennedy! If you haven’t read her Miss Prentice Cozy Mystery Series, you’ve missed out on one of the best cozy series I’ve ever read! 

Here’s a blurb about the first book,  IRREGARDLESS OF MURDER, along with a few reviews. Stop by and say hello, and you could win a $10.00 Amazon gift card! 

Amelia Prentice, a forty-something high school English teacher comfortable in her predictable routine, regains consciousness after tripping over the corpse of a former student in the safest of places, the public library. Returning to the classroom, she tries to pretend
nothing happened. But when it becomes obvious that the victim’s death wasn’t an accident and she is now a murder suspect, she realizes that her cozy small-town life in New York’s Adirondack region will never be the same.

Crazy things begin to happen: The victim’s mother disappears. Amelia’s friend Lily is thrown overboard from the Lake Champlain ferryboat. A mysterious millionaire from Montreal seems determined to buy Amelia’s house. The school nurse is viciously attacked by a student. Amelia’s old beau Gil suddenly seems determined to rekindle their romance. Amelia is carjacked, and, of course, there’s the Lake Champlain Monster . . .

It will take all Amelia’s wisdom, humor, and faith to figure out what’s going on and embrace the new life that lies ahead. If she survives . . .

“It’s got everything a great cozy story needs—a charming and sympathetic heroine, a colorful supporting cast . . . a little romance, and, of course, a murder that challenges the reader.” —Sarah Shaber, award-winning author of Louise’s War, Louise’s Gamble, and the Simon Shaw mysteries.

“Ellen Kennedy’s Amelia Prentice is the perfect amateur detective in this charming cozy. Irregardless of Murder is what cozy mystery is all about!” —Nancy Mehl, author of The Road to Kingdom Series

“Romance, intrigue, twists at every turn . . . who could ask for more? I was hooked from the first page until the last and didn’t want to put it down! I can usually figure out who dunnit, but E. E. Kennedy kept me guessing until the big reveal. Well played, Ms. Kennedy. Well played.” —Donna Earnhardt, author of Being Frank and blogger at

On Friday, we’ll hear from Suspense Sister Nancy Mehl about her upcoming release, BLIND BETRAYAL. Someone will win a signed copy of the book!

Deputy U.S. Marshal Casey Sloane has worked at the St. Louis Marshals office for two years and is given a routine assignment to help transport a reporter to D.C. to testify before a grand jury. Valerie, the reporter, was writing a story about an up-and-coming environmentalist who suddenly disappeared and, she later discovered, whose backers purportedly have ties to a terrorist.

When the seemingly ordinary assignment suddenly takes a shocking turn, Casey is forced to put aside her own feelings about the unexpected reappearance of a man from her past as she and two other Marshals take Valerie on the run. And as it becomes dangerously clear Valerie's testimony has even bigger implications than they knew, they'll do whatever it takes to make it out alive.

The final book in the Defenders of Justice series comes to a climactic end with bombs exploding, kidnappings, hit men and bad guys who will stop at nothing to make sure their empire stays intact. . . . Nancy Mehl is a talented author who knows what fans of her books expect, and she never disappoints. Readers won't be able to anticipate Blind Betrayal's twists and turns!"--RT Book Reviews
