Cozy Mysteries Review

Let’s plan a murder!

OK, maybe not plan a murder exactly… just read about it. It is October after all, the month for all things mystery, suspense, thriller, etc.

Or maybe we should help solve a murder? Decisions decisions…

Author Emmeline Duncan and author Tamara Berry will be at Inklings this October 22nd, 1 to 3pm, with their newest titles and ready to solve a mystery or two with us. There might even be prizes to anyone that purchases a book from them.

Emmeline Duncan is coming from Oregon. She was here last year for our very first Cozy Mysteries for Halloween event with the first book in her A Ground Rules Mystery series, Fresh Brewed Murder. The book was so good, and everyone loved it so much, we had to order more.

The second book came out this April, and it is called Double Shot DeathAlthough it can be read as a standalone (we will have both available this Saturday), it has the same main character as in the first book, our fabulous master barista and crime solving extraordinaire, Sage Caplin. Sage manages to get a spot at an annual eco-friendly festival held just outside Portland, where fans get to enjoy some great Pacific Northwest music, great food, and fantastic coffee. Sounds perfect right? And it is… until Sage stumbles upon a dead body in the nearby woods, his hands still clutching one of her coffee mugs. Can she help solve yet another murder that just ‘fell’ at her doorstep?

Tamara Berry is here in Washington. She has been at Inklings before with her Eleanor Wilde mystery series. This past May she released a new mystery series, By the Book Mysteries. The first book is called Buried in a Good Book and it is perfect for the book lover and the mystery lover alike.

The book focuses on bestselling thriller author Tess Harrow and her daughter Gertrude. After Tess’s divorce is final, she looks for a new start at the rustic cabin in the woods she inherited from her late grandfather. The place is just perfect to restart and refresh, it has great mountain views and a beautiful pond. But as soon as they get there an explosion shakes the cabin and it’s suddenly raining fish parts and well… human parts?! Not a great start. Specially without wi-fi, phone service, electricity, running water… and a teenage daughter!

Both these authors are fantastic human beings and we love having them at Inklings. Come have a chat with them this Saturday and grab a signed book or three!
