Author: Anna Celeste Burke

An intriguing package arrives with a mysterious message from a monk at the Benedictine Monastery perched high above Corsario Cove. That package and an all-expense paid second honeymoon lure newlyweds Kim & Brien back to the luxurious Sanctuary Resort & Spa. Troubled monks seem to be everywhere--at the resort, the surfer village near the beach, and in the nearby town of San Albinus. "God is not pleased," cries a hooded figure from a "cavern of forgotten dreams." Arson, kidnapping, and murder soon shove Kim and Brien in over their heads. What's going on? Are the mad monks in Corsario Cove crazy or crazy like a fox? Come, join Kim and Brien, Detective Mitchum, and the enigmatic new resident of Sanctuary Grove, Bede Greco, as they try to make sense of it all.

Author Description:
Life is an extravaganza! figuring out how to hang tough and make the most of the wild ride is the challenge.

On my way to Oahu, to join the rock musician and high school drop-out I married in Tijuana, I was nabbed by the police as a runaway. When the police let me go and the rock band broke up, my husband and I had to find another way to survive. Our next stop: Disney World where we trained to be chefs, courtesy of the Walt Disney World University. A GED for my husband, and many more years of education landed us in academia at The Ohio State University. Retired now from my role as a professor in social work and behavioral science, I have picked up a long-time interest in writing fiction. I'm still married to the same sweet guy, and live with him in the Palm Springs area. In addition to reading and writing fiction, I enjoy painting, hiking, hanging out with my handsome husband and tending to my Siamese kitties.

I write the Jessica Huntington Desert Cities Mystery series, set here in and around Palm Springs, CA. As Jessica Huntington, amateur sleuth and calamity magnet, will tell you, the Sonoran Desert is a beautiful setting in which to ponder life's mysteries while enjoying the delights of the desert resort communities. A Dead Husband, Book 1, and A Dead Sister, Book 2, out now. Book 3, A DEAD DAUGHTER out soon. Look for Book 4, A DEAD MOTHER, in 2015. ALSO OUT NOW: LOVE, A FOOT ABOVE THE GROUND. This sweet romance is narrated by Jessica Huntington as she shares her friend, Bernadette's, tale of love, loss, and hope…"a real happily ever after story."




First Case

Writers Retreat Southern Seashore Mystery Book 1


Author: Kathi Daley

AVAILABLE at Amazon
Barnes and Noble


The fact that Katrina Pomeroy had been murdered was in and of itself a newsworthy event. The fact that she had been murdered on Friday October 13th exactly eleven years after she’d been one of five teenagers to survive the Friday The 13th Massacre, made her passing worthy of notice by the national news agencies Jillian Hanford used to work for. When an old editor of Jillian's offered her the chance to write a human interest piece about Katrina’s life and subsequent death, she jumped at the chance to re-launch her currently defunct career. Of course in order to make the sort of impact she was after, she’d not only need to write about Katrina’s unusual life, but she’d need to answer the question of who was responsible for her death. She knew she'd need help so she decided to enlist the help of the five writers currently living at the writer's retreat on Gull Island. Jillian would soon discover a decade old secret covering a shocking truth that was better left unrevealed.

A brand new female vicar. An accident-prone nun. Two friends. Two killings.

Annabelle and Mary are best friends. But when one gets framed for murder, can the other one save her?

Assigned to St. Clement's Church in an inner-city borough just outside Hackney in London, Reverend Annabelle Dixon brings an enthusiasm and drive to her clerical position that baffles her mentor, Father John, but which soon gains her fans and admiration. Annabelle is not your typical vicar, but her strengths prove to serve her, and those around her, very well.

When Annabelle plans to meet her longtime friend, Sister Mary, a Catholic nun visiting from West Africa, at a local café, little does she know that she will soon find herself embroiled in a mystery of deadly design. Their meeting place is awash with horror, with Sister Mary standing in the middle, shaking, her hand over her mouth and a dead woman at her feet.

Armed only with a note, a disappearing dart, vague hints, and a love of cake, this quick-thinking, quick-footed holy woman must gather the clues, pacify a detective, and find the real perpetrator before both she and her friend wind up in jail.

Part Sherlock, part Father Dowling, Annabelle is a new kind of detective – one who sees the truth in the most unlikely places. If you love solving puzzles, then this suspense-filled, endearing, cozy mystery is just for you. Enjoy following our amateur sleuth as she careers around London. It will have you guessing until the very end!

When Ray Martin, the wealthy owner of Moving Graphics, is murdered on a corporate fly fishing trip arranged by Jack Trout, Jack's wife, Carola, knows that if she doesn't solve the murder it could be the end of Jack's successful fishing business. She and Ray's wife, Lisa, along with some help from Cayo the cat, begin their search for the murderer.

When it becomes apparent that the small town's chief of police won't help, because he hates Americans, it's up to them to figure out who murdered Ray. Was it Mitch Graham, who made no pretense of the fact he was ready to take over the presidency of the company? Janelle Byers, the CFO who had been accused of embezzlement at her last job? Brad Dixon, who coveted Ray's antique Winston Fly rod, Hardy reel, and the early 20th century hand-tied flies? Pablo Varela, a local fishing guide whose wife desperately needed medical care they couldn't afford? Or even Ray's wife, Lisa?

As always plenty of good food and recipes. Enjoy!
