GRACE SEES RED by Julie Hyzy
READ TO DEATH by Terrie Farley Moran

Book 7 in the Manor House Mysteries
by Julie Hyzy  

The New York Times bestselling author of the Manor House Mysteries and the White House Chef Mysteries is back with another nail-biting murder mystery for curator Grace Wheaton. 
Grace Wheaton, curator and manager of Marshfield Manor, and her benefactor, Bennett Marshfield, are discussing how to help her roommates Bruce and Scott with their wine shop troubles when Grace’s trusted—if testy—assistant, Frances, calls, saying she needs some assistance of her own. Arriving at the address Frances has given them, they find a coroner’s van and police cars parked outside an upscale assisted-living facility called Indwell.
One of the elderly residents has been found dead under suspicious circumstances, and Frances, seen arguing with the man earlier that day, is now a person of interest. It’s up to Grace to clear her assistant’s name and find the real killer—before another Indwell resident checks out early...


Author Julie Hyzy has penned another fantastic installment in the Manor House Mysteries!

With every new book in this delightful series, author Hyzy adds new layers to her characters, giving us a new peek into their lives. This serves to keep each new story fresh, and enticing.

GRACE SEES RED, as with past books in the Manor House Mysteries, was an intriguing read that moved at a brisk pace. Each new chapter so well written, I was encouraged to keep turning page after page until I found myself at the exciting reveal!

Seven must indeed be a lucky number, because GRACE SEES RED is one of the best books in the series!


Book 3 in the Read 'Em And Eat Mysteries
by Terrie Farley Moran

The national bestselling author of Caught Read-Handed revisits Fort Myers Beach, Florida, where the proprietors of a local bookstore café occasionally take a stab at solving murder...
At their seaside Read ‘Em and Eat bookstore café, Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield offer fresh scones, great books, and excellent detective work…
With their book club season wrapping up with The Florida Life of Thomas Edison, Sassy and Bridgy decide to take their group on a day trip to the beautiful Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Hiring driver Oscar Frieland, who’s known for his colorful stories  and love of the café’s Robert Frost fruit tartlets, the bibliophiles set off for a day of sunshine and history.
After a lovely excursion, the club returns to the café for lunch and a book discussion, but the group falls silent after Oscar is found dead in his van. The sheriff’s deputies have some questions of their own for the group, and if the ladies don’t find some answers soon, the next book they read might be from a prison library.


Having long anticipated this third book in the Read ‘Em And Eat Mysteries, I was thrilled to see author Terrie Farley Moran did not disappoint!

I have adored this series since the since chapter one of the first book, WELL READ, THEN DEAD. Author Moran has a writing style that is so light and fluid, reading her stories is a pure joy.

I was ecstatic to be back in Florida and the Read ‘Em And Eat bookstore café with Sassy and Bridgy, and all the wonderful characters in this amazing series. As with the two books before, READ TO DEATH was a fun, and exciting mystery that I couldn’t put down! The plot for this story was so extremely well done. It pulled me in and kept me captivated as I tried to guess the who and why.

You need to add READ TO DEATH! And if you haven’t already, get the first two books as well. You will not be sorry!

Take a peek in the back of the book and you’ll find a savory, and a sweet recipe sure to my your tummy growl!
