Early and Personal Life

Growing up as a natural-born storyteller, Cynthia Hickey would always be keenly interested in the written word from an early age. This passion of hers would develop throughout much of her life, as she would continue to hone and refine it as time went on. Allowing her skills to progress as an author, she would eventually turn to writing full-time, finding what it was she really wanted to say.

Taking much of her inspiration from the world around her, she would carry on learning her craft, continually looking for her next big idea. Living between Arizona and Arkansas, she also works as a detention monitor at her local school, all while writing regularly. She has children and grandchildren, as she currently lives with her husband in Arizona, with more books expected to follow.

Writing Career

Always a storyteller, Cynthia Hickey would later to becoming a full-time writer for a living, successfully reaching an international audience. Her first book, titled ‘Fudge-Laced Felonies,’ would be a cozy mystery, and it would also start off her much loved ‘Summer Meadows Mystery’ series. She would also go on to write other series, such as ‘Overcoming Evil,’ ‘Woman of Courage,’ and ‘River Valley Mystery.’

All of this would help her establish a name and successful brand for herself as one of the leading figures in the industry. Gaining a lot of commercial and critical success, she would come to have her many praises sung by critics and the general public alike. Maintaining a presence both online and off, she gains numerous award nominations while continuing her long and illustrious writing career.

To Snap a Killer

Initially released through the ‘Winged Publications’ outlet, this would be the fifth book in the ‘A Hollywood Murder’ series. The last books would also be mystery novels featuring the same character Kelly Canyon, but they’d all have stand-alone stories. They can be picked up at any single point, with the series continuing chronologically, as there’s plenty for fans and newcomers alike.

Now finally getting married, the only wish of the grandmother of Kelly Canyon is that nobody dies during the reception. That’s when a top Hollywood agent is killed, and Kelly and her friends are this time pushed into a case involving Kelly’s own father’s death many years prior. Moving between Hollywood and Las Vegas, Kelly must do whatever it takes to hold onto what’s hers and solve the case. Will she manage to find the killer, though, can she find out what happened to her own father all those years ago, and what will happen once it’s time to snap a killer?

This novel works on many different levels, as it’s highly entertaining and an easy read while having some emotional depth to it as well. Making for an extremely engaging story, it moves along with confidence and wit, keeping the reader guessing every step of the way. There’s also plenty for fans of the series to enjoy too, as it has many arcs and developments carrying on from the previous books.

Vine Entrapment

Originally coming out on the 1st of August in 2020, this would initially come out through the ‘Winged Publications’ publishing imprint. This would be the sixth book in the ‘Shady Acres Mystery’ series of novels, following on directly from the previous five books. The series itself follows Shelby Hart as she solves various different cases, and they don’t need to be read in order, with each mystery being self-contained.

Looking to get married once more to a man who won’t be leaving her at the alter this time, Shelby Hart hopes to find her perfect partner. That’s when another murder takes place, and Shelby is hired in order to clear the name of her own mother and hopefully solve the case. Not only that, but her grandmother also vows to pay her a gift for managing it, but she can’t receive it as payment. What is the gift then, can she solve the case and bring the killer to justice, and just who is behind the vine entrapment?

Making up the last novel in the mystery series, this is definitely a great finale to end everything on, wrapping it up essentially. The story itself will keep readers constantly guessing throughout, as there are plenty of twists and turns here along the way. Its character development is also something to be admired, making for an extremely engaging story that works on multiple levels.
