Crystals, Belladonna, and Murder

Crystals, Belladonna, and Murder

A cantankerous former mayor
A dead man with a secret.
A midlife magic gift with a murder mystery that keeps you guessing.

When forty-nine year old Eleanor Rockwell was laid off from her soul-crushing corporate job, she moved a few miles north of Austin with her daughter, Evie, and opened Silver Circle Cat Rescue in the small town of Tablerock, Texas.

Five years later, SCCR is Wildebridge County's largest shelter for lost kitties, so it's no surprise when Deputy Markham brings Belladonna—former mayor Fiona Blackwell's cat—to the shelter after she's arrested for murdering her husband, Beau. But why, Eleanor wonders, did the Deputy bring a silver drink tray with the sullen cat—and why is Belladonna talking when she walks on it?

Something strange is going on in Tablerock, and Eleanor is determined to get to the bottom of it. Can she unravel the mystery before it's too late, or will she fall victim to the town's sinister spell?

Honey, Hairballs, and Murder

A beekeeper with a sting.
A cat with a secret.
A cat rescue in the middle of it all.

In the small town of Tablerock, Texas, life is as sweet as honey. Fifty-year-old Ellie Rockwell’s Silver Circle Cat Rescue is settling in to the shelter’s inherited mansion on the edge of town, and only a few people know about the magical platter that came with it—the one that allows cats to speak to humans.

But life takes a sour turn when local beekeeper and honey entrepreneur Ben Tyson is found dead, leaving his beloved cat, Honey, as the only witness to the crime.

As Ellie and Evie work to help Honey piece together what happened to her former owner, the investigation puts the rescued cats (and the cat rescuers) in a heap of sticky trouble. Not everyone in town was as sweet on Ben as they appeared, and they definitely didn’t want anyone buzzing about it.

Can Ellie, Evie and their furry friends solve the crime before the killer strikes again? Find out in “Honey, Hairballs, and Murder”, the second book in a purr-fectly paranormal midlife cozy mystery series.
