Book 2 in the Postmistress Mysteries
by Jean Flowers

Cassie Miller returned to her sleepy hometown in the Berkshires to start over as the new postmistress. But she soon finds that dead letters are nothing compared to murder victims...

With a massive storm about to hit North Ashcot, Massachusetts, threatening floods and widespread wind damage, Cassie is forced to close up the post office along with the rest of the local business owners and residents, who are battening down the hatches and bracing themselves for the worst. 

Although the storm proves not to be as bad as predicted, fabric shop owner Daisy Harmon is found dead, seemingly killed by a fallen branch. But the police quickly determine that her death had nothing to do with foul weather and everything to do with foul play. After Daisy’s widowed husband approaches her to help solve his wife’s murder, Cassie vows to find the killer before another innocent victim is taken by storm.


Another first class story in the Postmistress Mysteries!

When I read book one, DEATH TAKES PRIORITY, I knew author Jean Flowers had a hit series on her hands. CANCELLED BY MURDER is the wonderful proof!

It was great to be back in North Ashcot, Massachusetts with series lead, Cassie Miller, and the other kind, fun, eccentric characters that make up this town. Jean Flowers must be a true observer of people for her characters to have such depth. Honestly, some of the townspeople have to be based on real people because I’d swear I’ve meant one or two of them. ;-)

In a book that certainly is not a return to sender, I was completely engrossed in CANCELLED BY MURDER from the moment I opened the cover. In a perfect two hundred and ninety page package, author Flowers delivered mystery, mayhem, and action, in a story with a brilliantly written plot.

CANCELLED BY MURDER should be a priority for your reading list!

When you have a copy of your own, make sure to check out the back of the book for some fun and informative post office stories!


Book 44 in the Murder She Wrote Mysteries
by Jessica Fletcher, 
Donald Bain and Renée Paley Bain


Jessica’s friend, Eve Simpson, has recently taken on the task of selling one of Cabot Cove’s oldest properties—the Spencer Percy House. Its current occupant, Cliff Cooper, is convinced he’s about to die and wants the house sold so he can give the proceeds to his grandson. 

But Eve’s got quite a challenge on her hands. Not only is the building in deplorable physical condition, it is also rumored to be haunted. 

When Cliff’s deadly premonition becomes a reality, some people aren’t sure he died of natural causes. Now, as Jessica tries to get to the bottom of Cliff Cooper’s death, a medium hired by Eve attempts to rid the house of the alleged apparition. But if Jessica isn’t careful, she may be the one who joins the ranks of the dearly departed.


A Murder She Wrote with a ghost story? Perfect reading with autumn settling in!

After forty-four books, just about anything that’s going to be said about this series has more than likely already been said. From the incredible writing, to the comfort brought to us by familiar old characters, the Murder She Wrote Mystery series stands strong.

In MSW: THE GHOST AND MRS. FLETCHER the fun twist in this story, as the title suggests, is a ghost. Or is it? With a friend dying slightly before his time, and rumors of his home being haunted, our fearless mystery author and sleuth, Jessica Fletcher, has to keep sharp to get to the bottom of this one.

Well done to author Donald Bain for keeping a well loved television show alive and thriving forty-four books later!

Both of these great titles are available now!
