The Lotus Bay Mysteries series begins chronologically with the novella Panty Raid. The story introduces Tori Cannon as well as her best friend, Kathy Grant. The two get together for a girls weekend, but there is the problem of a panty pincher hanging around the laundry room of Tori’s complex. Kathy believes they can catch the culprit and they set out to do just that.

With Baited Breath is the first novel in the Lotus Bay Mysteries series. The story begins with Tori’s life in chaos. She’s just lost her job and her grandmother, and now her lease has run out. She ends up heading to Lotus Bay near Lake Ontario to live with her grandfather and revise his failing bait and tackle business. Tori is trying to convince him not to sell when a dead body is found on the property. The man is found with spikes in his mouth. Now Tori will set out not only to save the business, but also to find a murderer.

The Victoria Square Mystery series begins with A Crafty Killing. The last thing that Katie Bonner wanted out of her life was to be the manager of Artisans Alley, but when her business partner Ezra is found dead, she has no other choice. Artisans Alley is a renovated applesauce factory that features booths for artisans and craft sellers, but business had been faltering of late. The police are now investigating by the book while Kate is doing her own investigation – by the booth.

The Walled Flower is the second book in the Victoria Square Mystery series. Kate is somewhat jealous to see that the Webster mansion is being remodeled into a bed-and-breakfast by a young couple. That couple ends up in a shocking situation when they find a skeleton sealed into the walls during their remodel. The body is identified as a woman who went missing twenty years ago. A vendor at Artisans Alley ends up asking Kate for help in finding out who did the crime as the killer is still out there.

Murder on the Mind is the first book in the Jeff Resnick Mystery series, written under the pen name of L.L. Bartlett. Resnick hardly knew his half-brother, but he needs him now. Jeff was mugged and attacked, and now needs a recovery. His half-brother can provide him a place to do it. Jeff soon finds himself haunted by visions of a murdered banker that turns out to be the real case of Matt Sumner. Jeff appears to be experiencing some psychic abilities which his brother is skeptical about. Still, the two will work together to try and find out what happened to Matt.

The Jeff Resnick series continues with Dead in Red. A bartender at his favorite bar is murdered and he begins to experience his visions. His visions feature bloody hands and a red high-heeled shoe. Jeff’s brother Richard will once again team with him to find the murderer. This time it takes them into the world of drag queens and fetishes.

Murder is Binding is the first book in the Booktown Mystery series. City girl Tricia Miles moved to the small town of Stoneham and was met by friendly faces. Then she opened up a mystery bookstore and ended up being met with some friendly competition. Doris Gleason, owner of a cookbook store, is murdered by her own carving knife and suddenly things feel a lot less friendly. The locals are blaming Tricia for the crime so she will have to take a page from the mystery books she loves and solve it herself.

The Booktown Mystery series continues with Bookmarked for Death. Tricia hosts a book signing for a bestselling author that turns sour when the author is found dead. Police and reporters are on the scene and demanding answers. The only suspect is the author’s assistant, but Tricia isn’t so sure. She’ll take matters into her own hands and solve the mystery.

The third book in the Booktown Mystery series is Bookplate Special. Tricia is visited by her college roommate who shows up uninvited and stays for weeks. Not only that, but Pammy has also stolen $100 from her. Tricia has had enough and kicks her out. Days later, Pammy is found dead. What happened? Tricia aims to find out.

    On my NOOK, I recently read “Happy Holidays’. When I got to the end there is a note about Judi having a surprise. When I clicked on the link nothing happened. It did not work. How do I find out what the surprise is? Thanks.
