#3 – Death by Pumpkin Spice
A fancy Halloween party turns fatal in this mystery that’s “so much fun to read” (Suspense Magazine).
Bookstore café owner Krissy Hancock would rather spend Halloween serving pumpkin goodies than wearing costumes with Pine Hills’ wealthiest, especially when the soiree at a local mansion shapes up to be more trick than treat.
As if a run-in with an old flame and a failed marriage proposal weren’t enough to horrify Krissy for one night, a woman is found strangled to death in a room filled with ominous jack-o’-lanterns. All signs suggest a crime of passion-but when the hostess’s jewelry disappears, malevolent intentions seem way more likely.
With the estate on lockdown and a killer roaming the halls, Krissy must help Officer Paul Dalton investigate each nook, cranny, and guest for answers-while also confronting a few demons of her own. Someone has lots of skeletons in the closet, and Krissy better tread lightly to expose them…

When the winner of the contest is beaned with a carafe full of café mocha, suspicions swirl-along with accusations of bribery. Was the dead man offering perks to the judges-or was something sinister going on in his personal life? This case is going to keep Krissy up all night long …
