If you love somewhat cozier whodunnit mysteries that still have a strong puzzle to solve, a sleuth with her own secrets to hide, more inclined to smart-ass humor than cutesy, likable characters, a developing romance, and dogs – lots of dogs . . .
The Secret Sleuth mystery series
starting with Death on the Diversion which is free.
Sheila settles into her new life – rescue dog, small town, great sidekick, possible love interest — in Book 2, Death on Torrid Ave. The best deal is to get both books in a special box set for a reduced price from getting each separately.
Each book has a standalone mystery, which is solved by the end of that book. The ongoing characters’ stories develop throughout books of the series.

Each book focuses on a different couple. The three female protagonists are cousins who shared a tragedy earlier in their lives, with each finding a different way to cope . . . leading them each into . . . let’s say situations. Dangerous situations.
Where to start overall?
Most readers start with the Caught Dead in Wyoming series, then add on the Secret Sleuth series – both those series are ongoing. The Innocence Trilogy is complete. (For now. Sometimes I can’t help myself from coming back to characters I love. So no promises.)
