Not many new titles out this week,
(that I could find)
but it's about quality not quantity, right?


It's October in South Cove, California, and the locals in the quaint resort seem to be happily pairing off in the lull before the holidays. Everyone, that is, except for Jill Gardner's elderly aunt, who just dumped her besotted fiancé-and she won't say why.

When Jill hosts a talk at Coffee, Books, and More on the topic of elder abuse, all that's really on her mind is lunch. But the topic hits close to home when she discovers Aunt Jackie has been getting mysterious calls. Jill's certain the caller is a con artist, of course, but her feisty aunt claims to understand this, though she's still shaken-and Harrold's still heartbroken. Who's behind the scam and why was her aunt targeted? When a volunteer from the Senior Project is found murdered, Jill's detective boyfriend is on the case-and it soon becomes clear no one is safe when a caller from beyond becomes a killer in their midst.

In wine country, a federal judge is murdered and Aunt Lettie’s old friend, Judge Colin Brinkley, quickly becomes a suspect.

Lily, Austin, and her friends are excited about the Calla Lily Winery vintages entered in this year’s Taste of Napa Challenge. The event turns out to be more challenging than anyone imagined when a fire ends the awards ceremony. The plot thickens when one of the wines entered in the competition turns out to be a killer vintage. The U.S. Marshals Service is on the job, but when Aunt Lettie’s old friend becomes a suspect, Lily and her friends are soon caught up in the mystery too. Is the murder of a federal judge about a rivalry among vintners, one of the judge’s cases, or something more personal? Join Lily and Austin as they try to discover who’s responsible for fall’s killer vintage.

Grab your copy of the latest installment in the Calla Lily Mystery series by USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Anna Celeste Burke.
