Author Tricia O’Malley writes the “Althea Rose” series of cozy mystery novels. The series began publication in the year 2015, when “One Tequila” was released. The series is made up of both novels and novellas.

Althea Rose stars in the series, and she is a psychic that lives in Tequila Key. She is one of the owners of Luna Rose & Tarot Shop.

“One Tequila” is the first novel in the “Althea Rose Mystery” series, which was released in the year 2015. Tequila Key is like any other small town, and Althea is just like any other small town psychic. Scratch that. Tequila Key is a world all onto itself and some folks might believe that she is one crayon short of an entire box.

Tequila Key really is like any other small town, honestly, if that town boasted a voodoo priestess and some white witches for flavoring. Turquoise blue water as well as the best margaritas on this side of Mexico makes it a tough place for Althea to leave.

She is Althea Rose, who co-owns Luna Rose & Tarot Shop, and she has just come across a love triangle while she is trying to save her best friend from being accused of killing someone.

See? It really is like any other small town.

“Tequila For Two” is the second novel in the “Althea Rose Mystery” series, which was released in the year 2015. There is always one in every bunch. A person that takes things too seriously and just a little too far. The fanatic.

A radical Pagan group hits Tequila Key for so they can celebrate the autumnal equinox, and it makes Althea’s psychic senses tingle. She goes into full alert mode after she meets Horace, who is a Gandalf wannabe that reminds Althea of an old guy playing dress up. A single look into his eyes sets her straight on that, and quickly Althea’s best buddy Luna is forcing her to learn a magical protection spell before they look into Horace and his festival. Making things worse, Althea messes the spell up and the results are, well, interesting is putting it mildly.

As for her love life? There is zero time for love when there are bodies turning up on deserted beaches. Quickly, Althea is in far over her head while the full moon begins to rise and the clock runs out on the killer that is wandering Tequila Key’s peaceful streets.

“Three Tequilas” is the third novel in the “Althea Rose Mystery” series, which was released in the year 2016. It is tough to resist an old fashioned treasure hunt. Far be it for Althea to do it. Even if Cash, her boyfriend, is not so thrilled about it.

An esteemed institute in London hires Althea, as well as Trace (her dive master friend) to document a dangerous treasure expedition. It pulls them into a game that neither one had realized they were even playing. It is a race to locate a rare Aztec emerald that was lost on a sunken pirate ship, Althea must use every trick she has to stay alive. Even things like magick.

O’Malley wrote a great mystery here and filled it with some entertaining characters. She always provides a nice quick read for her fans, and they always end nicely. For some, this is their favorite book of the series, as it involves tons of diving and treasure.

“Tequila Four” is the fourth novel in the “Althea Rose Mystery” series, which was released in the year 2017. It is not every day that a billionaire pharmacy CEO takes his yacht on down to Tequila Key to see how some of the common folk live. Or, as is the case for Chadwick Huntington, to hide out from the media circus that is threatening to ruin his not-so-glamorous career after he privatized a patented cure for Alzheimer’s.

It really is no wonder the guy was called the most hated guy in all America.

Chadwick gets abducted, and his security chief makes Althea and Miss Elva use all of their extra-sensory powers to track Chadwick down. They have got three days, or else. This is the last thing that Althea needs at the moment, as she finds herself caught in the middle of an explosive love triangle. It is doing its best to distract her from what is really going on, at the moment.

The clocking is running out of time. A website goes viral after they release in detail Chadwick’s lifestyle, and the entire world is just watching for what is coming next. All while Althea is required to throw caution right into the wind to find the one guy she just as soon would have seen left for dead.

This is a great little series of stories. They are light, fun, and quirky with touches of romance, magic, and mystery. Not to mention they hold your attention very nicely as well.

“A Fifth of Tequila” is the fifth novel in the “Althea Rose Mystery” series, which was released in the year 2018. Fame can be quite the tricky business, which is something Althea learns quickly when spotlight-hunters arrive in Tequila Key. This comes right after rumors about a psychic reality show hit headlines.

What makes things more annoying are all the tabloid photographers that insist on taking pictures of Althea in all kinds of unflattering positions. Like when she bends over so she can take off her wet suit. Why would anybody want their bum plastered all over a magazine cover?

Althea, who is understandably peeved, grows even more frustrated after she learns there is a famous TV producer looking to sign her and Miss Elva to co-star on the reality show. Making things worse, a competing psychic with a huge ego has turned up in town, sniffing out his chance to be in the spotlight. Both he and his ruthless assistant make life hell for Althea while they try to each get the coveted lead role in the show.

Althea just tries to ignore all of the bedlam and get on with life, but surprise, she is caught in the heart of another murder. This time around, fingers are all pointed in her direction.
