Murder in Steeple Martin - Libby Sarjeant Murder Mystery series, by Lesley Cookman.

Price: $0.99. (Still on sale?)

This book is first in a series of British murder mysteries featuring retired middle-aged actress and sleuth, Libby Sarjeant.

"I will begin by stating that I am a big fan of "cozy" mysteries, particularly those set in English villages and with characters who are more than two-dimensional. I am reading the last of the series by Lesley Cookman (Libby Sarjeant Murder Mysteries) and have been totally charmed by them.

"The characters are believable and have plenty of quirks and faults so they seem more like real people than most characters found in mysteries. There are plenty of funny moments but these are not what I consider "comic" mysteries.

"If you like twisty plots, with a bunch of very likeable characters, I think you will enjoy these..." -- Andie Senji, Vine Voice

Artist and ex-actress Libby Sarjeant is busy directing a play for the opening of a new theatre in her village when one of her cast is found murdered. The play, written by her friend Peter, is based on real events in his family, disturbing and mysterious, which took place in the village during the last war. 

As the investigation into the murder begins to uncover a tangled web of relationships in the village, it seems that the events dramatised in the play still cast a long shadow, dark enough to inspire murder.

Libby's natural nosiness soon leads her into the thick of the investigation, but is she too close to Peter s family, and in particular his cousin Ben, to be able to recognise the murderer?

352 pages, with a 4-star rating from 13 reviews, and $0.99 today!

Loose Ends - A Mary O'Reilly Paranormal Mystery (Book 1), by Terri Reid.

Price: free! (Still free?)

And now a free one for you - with a whopping 180 customer reviews, and a 4.4-star rating!

"This Mary O'Reilly Mystery is both scary and funny, with wonderful characters and lots of action. I was not certain 'who done it' until the very end, and I couldn't put it down until it was all over!

"Mary and Bradley are just plain fun together - can't help but laugh out loud - but I found the characters of Rosie and Stanley to be a terrific foil to Mary's dry quips. Loose Ends is a hit! " -- Kathleen, Amazon reviewer

Dying is what changed Mary O'Reilly's life. Well, actually, coming back from the dead and having the ability to communicate with ghosts is really what did it.

Now, a private investigator in rural Freeport, Illinois, Mary's trying to learn how to incorporate her experience as a Chicago cop and new-found talent into a real job. Her challenge is to solve the mysteries, get real evidence (a ghost's word just doesn't hold up in court), and be sure the folks in town, especially the handsome new police chief, doesn't think she's nuts.

Twenty-four years ago, a young woman drowned in the swimming pool of a newly elected State Senator. It was ruled an accident. But now, as the Senator prepares to move on to higher positions, the ghost of the woman is appearing to the Senator's wife.

Mary is hired to discover the truth behind the death. She unearths a connection between the murder and the disappearance of five little girls whose cases, twenty-four years later, are still all unsolved. As she digs further she becomes the next target for the serial killer's quest to tie up all his loose ends.

180 pages, with a 4.4-star rating from 180 reviews, and $ today!
