Do you love cozies? If you're a Kindle Unlimited member you can read them free. MURDER IN THE AISLE has now been joined by XMAS MARKS THE SPOT. They're set in the seaside village of Drizzle Bay, and there are murders, clues, cats and dogs, plenty of good food, laughs and possible love with no less than two very nice men. (Yes, think Janet Evanovich.)

Merry Summerfield is a freelance book editor who takes on temporary pet-sitting gigs to give her some time away from her much-loved but boring brother, Graham. And she simply seems to walk into trouble everywhere she goes.

Murder in the Aisle

Who killed the church flower arranger? 

Hi – I’m freelance editor Merry Summerfield, and it’s another fantastic day in drowsy Drizzle Bay. That’s until Vicar Paul and I find Isobel Crombie lying dead in a sea of flowers in the aisle of Saint Agatha’s church. Who’d kill a harmless old girl like her?

In no time flat I’ve scored a house-and-pet sitting gig – Isobel’s remote seaside cottage and her two darling dogs. It comes complete with hollyhocks and seagulls and a SEAL from California who looks a lot like a younger Jon Bon Jovi. He's certainly cute, but aren’t his questions about Isobel's house a bit – well, suspicious?

Then I find a secret office stuffed with alarming files about car thefts and Black Ops assassins. Maybe Isobel wasn't as harmless as we all thought?

Sleuthing’s more fun than I’ve had in ages, but how safe am I on my own now things are unraveling? Little white Bichons are hopeless attack dogs.

It is also available in Kindle Unlimited - so there is little risk, try it I am confident Merry will win you over!’  Book Devil Reviews

‘told from the first person POV and had me cracking up in getting to know about the quirkiness that is Merry. I found myself drawn in to the vast array of characters making up the small town of Drizzle Bay wondering how they potentially fit in to the murder and Merry's efforts to solve it. Murder in the Aisle is such a delightful read and had me guessing throughout! I can't wait for the next one in the series.’ TiffyHoo

‘I really enjoyed reading this book as it's not a genre that I normally read but it was well written and kept me guessing to the end.’ Julie

Xmas Marks the Spot

OMG! Who hid a quarter of a cow in the trunk of my brother’s beloved Mercedes? And what’s with that spooky big X marking the spot on the beach where a man lies dead? Can my quarter-cow and the corpse possibly be connected?

Detective Bruce Carver doesn’t think the body is any of my business, but someone’s up to no good amid the twinkling Christmas decorations in drowsy Drizzle Bay.

I’m sure I can help, but maybe I’m too curious for my own good. Who’s going to rescue me now a smelly rustler has roped me up far too close to that big white X? Not my brother and his two goofy spaniels. Not old Margaret and little Pierre the poodle. Not my ex-husband, the unfaithful Duncan Skene. I need a super-resourceful man with … umm…muscles.

From Susan on Goodreads

Merry is back in X Marks the Spot the second in the Merry Summerfield Cozy mysteries, I cannot believe what Merry gets herself into without even trying. It is a charming lighthearted and very easy to read book which I found hard to put down, gets you guessing right to the end and oh my what an ending, it leaves you wanting and needing more, please bring on book number three I can't wait, will Merry get together with John or Paul or will there be a twist, all you can be sure is she will walk straight into trouble without any effort absolutely brilliant.
