Kindred Crimes (The Jeri Howard Mystery Series Book 1)

Water Building World Nature Font


Those are just a few of the family members Oakland P.I. Jeri Howard finds herself investigating in a puzzling missing persons case that sprawls throughout the grittier sections of Northern California. For a woman who told her husband she had no relatives, Renee Foster’s actually well-stocked with them….and doozies at that. The whole family—criminals, abusers, and kindly aunts alike-- comes alive in Janet Dawson’s first novel, prompting the New York Times to hail it as “a welcome addition to this tough genre.”

There’s clearly a lot more here than the simple matter of a wife disappearing with the grocery money. Smelling a rat or two right from the beginning of this complex and intriguing mystery, the red-haired private detective follows many a twisty trail as Dawson weaves an equally twisty tale, which, to the reader’s delight, just keeps winding back on itself, revealing brand new secrets as fast as ancient skeletons can fall out of closets.

Dawson’s Oakland is damp and properly sinister and Jeri’s as savvy as Sam Spade, with something of Spade’s seen-it-all outlook. What she doesn't know, her chic lawyer pal, Cassie, can supply; and her cop ex-husband’s on hand to make trouble.

A Bluebell Knopps Witch Cozy Mystery BOX SET #2: Bluebell Knopps Witch Cozy Mysteries, Books 4-6

Publication Font Book Electric blue Book cover

The basement. That's where the secret to Bluebell's past, present & future resides. And, despite Mathilda's warning, she simply must know the truth...

There's just one problem. Upon discovering a scroll containing a disturbing prophecy about herself, Bluebell learns that the only person who is able to help her understand is no longer willing or able to do so. Apparently, she's given up the life of an oracle and has settled down to live a quiet life as the curator of the witches museum in the small town of Katydid's Tooth.

Though disappointed, Bluebell finds that Katydid's tooth is a wonderful little place with warm, friendly citizens. But then a woman goes missing and dead body turns up in the museum. Perhaps all is not as it seems in this storybook town.

And, as usual, Bluebell is intent upon getting to the bottom of it all...

Bluebell Knopps is a dreamer. Not fantasies or flights of fancy but plain, old dreams. Well...not plaindreams or old dreams, actually. After all, there is nothing "plain" or "old" about a dream that can show you the future or physically transport you to another place in time. In fact, those are pretty amazing dreams!

But, anyway, the important point is that Bluebell Knopps is a dreamer...

And this time her dream has landed her in a picturesque little town nestled amongst beautifully majestic silver mountains. A town dedicated to...turnips??? Really...turnips?!

That's right! And at this year's Turnip Festival - yes, they have a Turnip Festival - there is going to be a murder.

Nothing could make Bluebell happier than learning that her beloved childhood friend has become engaged. But when his announcement is followed by an urgent request for Bluebell to visit him in New York, she begins to wonder whether things are as wonderful as she’d initially assumed. And it won’t be long before her suspicions are proven correct.

There are dark forces at play in the city and soon Bluebell finds herself in the thick of a homicide investigation involving her close friend, a well-known dynasty and a business tycoon with a serious peanut allergy. Worse yet, there’s evidence to suggest that her friend’s fiancé just may be the murderer! And, when another person is found dead, Bluebell realizes that she must act fast if she hopes to save her friend’s future before it becomes a thing of the past!

Can Bluebell find the answers? And will discovering the truth make her regret her trip to the big city?
