      In stores now!!

      Disaster strikes a mere week before the Hemlock Falls Ladies’ Auxiliary hosts the annual Spring Fete when the festival’s chairwoman—the redoubtable Adela Henry—gives up her job in a huff. Who’s going to judge the justly renowned Jell-O architecture contest? Or stop the members of the Craft Guild from sabotaging their rivals, the Crafty Ladies? More to the point, who’s got the tact, diplomacy, and iron will necessary to organize the booths and settle quarrels over the programming?

      Hemlock’s mayor hopes to assure the fete’s success when he recruits professional organizer Linda Connally and her staff to take over Adela’s duties. But when Connally’s body turns up in the trunk of a used car at Peterson’s Automotive, Meg and Sarah are back in the detecting business! Buy it now in paperback, Kindle or Audiobook!

      “This mystery goes far beyond the usual discovery of a body as all is not quite as simple as it seems…eventually, beneath the surface of it all, this cozy mystery is far from cozy.” — D. Fowler,

    1. Dread on Arrival by Claudia Bishop
    2. Dread On Arrival

      It’s hate at first sight for two antiques dealers, an aristocratic Brit and a loud, foul-mouthed American, staying at the Hemlock Falls Inn, until one of them is found dead and the murder suspects pile up! Buy it now in paperback or Kindle!

      “The latest Hemlock Falls Mystery (see A Pinch of Poison and Murder Well-Done) is a delightful cozy filled with eccentric characters that bring plenty to the charming plot. Filled with red herrings and false leads, Quill is at her energizer bunny best as she uses her artistic eye to find clues in a case that seems to go nowhere. Fans will enjoy this fun whodunit as the polar opposite visiting TV personalities bring out small-town living.” — Harriet Klausner,
