One of my favorite things is getting to meet authors and finding out the inspiration behind their stories. And so, I am very excited to share that this Saturday, October 16th, 2-4pm, Inklings will have a meet and greet with PNW authors Emmeline Duncan and Alexis Morgan.
Emmeline Duncan is a mystery writer based out of Portland, Oregon. Her novels include the Ground Rules series, starting with 2021’s Fresh Brewed Murder, which will be title she will be signing for us this Saturday, and followed by 2022’s Double Shot Death. Which ofcourse, you will have to pre-order after falling in love with Fresh Brewed Murder.
"I'm still waiting for the day when I magically turn into an adult" Fresh Brewed Murder by Emmeline Duncan - chaper 1
In this novel we get to know barista Sage Caplin. Sage has high hopes for her new coffee cart, Ground Rules, until she finds the body of one of her very first customers in front of her cart. There are plenty of suspects, from longtime vendors annoyed at Ground Rules taking a coveted spot in the food truck lot, to protesters demonstrating against a new high-rise. But who committed murder? To makes things worse, one of Sage's own box cutter is discovered as the murder weapon.
Mystery lovers and coffee fanatics alike are bound to be enthralled with this story.
Alexis Morgan is a USA Today Bestselling author with over 45 novels, novellas, and short stories that span a variety of genres. Her latest venture is the cozy mystery series The Abby McCree Mystery. There are four books out and we will have all four in store: Death by Committee, Death by Jack-O'-Lantern, Death by Auction, and Death by Intermission.
Death by Committee is the story of Abby McCree. Abby suddenly inherits her favorite's relative property in the small town of Snowberry Creek, Washington, and soon realizes the inheritance comes with strings attached. The estate is in bad shape, there is a slobey mastiff impossible not to love, a tenant who growls more than the dog. But one could handle those things. It's what she finds in her aunt's backyard that makes things a little too complicated: Aunt Sybil's only known rival is buried in her backyard! But was her beloved Aunt really a murderer? or is the murderer on the loose?
This one is for the lovers of Mystery and quilting. Abby gets involved with a tight quilting guild and her quirky quilting friends do jump in to help try to solve this mystery.
Two other PNW Cozy Mystery authors could not join us this Saturday but have sent us some lovely signed bookplates. We will have available, on top of the two authors coming, A Christmas Carol Murder by Heather Redmond and The Witch Way Librarian series by Angela M. Sanders.
Have a Cozy Halloween!
