During her teenage years and her early twenties, Jinty graduated to the mysteries penned by Elizabeth Peters, Agatha Christie, and numerous other prominent authors of the mystery and cozy mystery genres.

Jinty always had the dream of writing her own book and create her own stories of cozy mystery one day.

A widely popular series written by author Jinty James is the Maddie Goodwell series. It began in 2016 and features the central characters in the roles of Trixie, Suzanne Taylor, and Maddie Goodwell. All these characters are shown running a coffee truck in the town of Estherville in Washington State. When mysterious happenings begin to take place in and around Estherville, Maddie, Suzanne, and Trixie get involved in investigating those mysteries and end up unraveling them with the help of their wit, intelligence, courage, and teamwork. The debut book of the Maddie Goodwell novel series is entitled ‘Lethal Latte’. It is also known by the title, Spells and Spiced Latte, and was released in 2016 as a Kindle book. The book opens by depicting that Maddie Goodwell keeps herself busy with her coffee truck named Brewed from the Bean along with her close friend Suzanne Taylor and her pet cat Trixie.

Maddie always thought of her hometown Estherville as a sleepy town. When she was small, she had come across an old book called Wythcraft for the Chosen. Two decades later, she could only cast one spell from the book with successful results, that is, the spell of coffee vision. When a regular customer named Joan asks Maddie to peek into her future, she sees Joan lying dead in her kitchen. This vision shocks both Maddie and Joan. Later, the vision turns into reality when Joan gets murdered. Maddie becomes so infuriated with Joan’s murder that she makes up her mind to investigate and catch the murderer. Trixie and Suzanne help her in carrying out the investigation.

The second book of this series is known as ‘Cappuccino Corpse’. It was also published as a Kindle book in 2017 and is known by another title called Visions and Vanilla Cappuccino. Once again, the novel opens by mentioning that Suzanne, Trixie, and Maddie are immersed in the operation of their specialty coffee truck. With the arrival of the coffee festival, all the people in the town seem to be excited. But, joy and happiness are short-lived as the murder of a radio personality brings everything to a standstill. When Maddie’s name gets added to the list of suspects, Trixie, Suzanne, and herself team up again to find the real culprit and clear’s Maddie Goodwell’s name. With just a couple of spells familiar to her, Maddie wonders if she can unmask the real murderer. As time is running out, the trio indulges in speeding things up in order to prevent the killing any more innocent people and track down the killer. This novel provides a good story with a paranormal setting and featuring mystical cats, good witches, and interesting sidekicks.
