It's wonderful to join a cozy mystery group. I have 18 books out, but only 5 are cozies, while others are mystery suspense and historical romances. But my favorite genre is cozy mystery.

NY Times best selling author, Jenn McKinlay is one prolific writer. For those of us who have trouble trying  to write one novel while editing another (which I am currently in the process of doing), she puts us to shame with the way she can multi-task doing several! Read how she does it at

Cozy Mystery Available For Review

Behind the Walls
Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series
By Elaine Orr
Publisher: Lifelong Dreams
ISBN: 978-1493744664
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Formats Available For Review: print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers in the U.S.), pdf, ebput, mobi, kindle

Finalist for the 2014 Chanticleer Mystery and Mayhem Awards (tba in March 2015).

Jolie is thrilled to have her own house -- even if it was damaged by Hurricane Sandy and in need of some definite TLC. She and friend Scoobie don't expect to find a sack of jewelry when they pull down wallboard. The loose diamonds and fancy bracelets must have been there a long time. Who put them there? Will anyone come looking for them? When Jolie finds an elderly Ocean Alley auctioneer dead on her porch swing, she can't help but think his death relates to the jewelry. Or does it? Join Jolie, Scoobie, Aunt Madge, friends and...a skunk? With the usual humor and need to ferret out a killer, the Jolie Gentil series is as much fun as ever.

I have a blog called Historical Reminiscing which has always had bits and pieces of whatever interested me. I am going to start doing a lot more cozy interviews with a book giveaway here and there. I would like to invite you to join my circle and in return I will do the same. It would help build up our blogs.  Please let me know those of you interested...

It is Day 8 on the Spell Booked Magical Mystery Tour!

Are you finding all the "magic words"?  If you had trouble go back and try again, some of the bloggers have enhanced their magic words even more. If you made a mistake on your original entry you can use the right words in the final Cast The Spell entry where you will earn 10 Bonus Entries!!

Spell Booked will keep you engaged with it's humor, wit, and overall unique take on the life cycle of a witch.

Day 7 on the Spell Booked Magical Mystery Tour with Joyce and Jim Lavene!!

This is probably my favorite books, by Joyce and Jim. Their books are always unique, but this series is a cut above the rest.
