I’m thrilled to bring you Plum Tea Crazy, the 19th book in my New York Times bestselling Tea Shop Mysteries. As tea shop owner Theodosia views Charleston Harbor’s Gaslights and Galleons Parade from the widow’s walk of a nearby mansion, a local banker tumbles over the narrow railing and plunges to his death. But this tragic accident turns sinister when Theodosia discovers that the victim was actually shot with a crossbow. With pacing that moves like a thriller, it’s one of the reasons Book Riot named the Tea Shop Mysteries to their list of “25 of the All Time Best Cozy Mystery Series.” Visit the author’s website:


Imogene Abney accepts a teaching position at Vandenberg School for Boys to vicariously experience life as an elite prep school student, but she gets more than she bargained for when popular, handsome senior Adam Kipling takes an interest. Exploring issues of class, sex, and gender, Imogene and Kip’s illicit, obsessive affair challenges the black-and-white nature of victimhood. Publishers Weekly calls Indecent, “[A] surprising debut…an affecting novel, examining self-doubt, self-sabotage, and the lasting impact of both.”

Dear Reader,

The small suburb of Pleasant Court lives up to its name. It’s the kind of place where everyone knows their neighbors, and children play in the street. But each family harbors their own dark secrets. And when mysterious new neighbor Isabelle moves into the quiet cul de sac, jaw-dropping discoveries will be made, and all of these secrets will finally come to light.

The Family Next Door was described by Library Journal (starred review) as “a work full of searing secrets and riveting realizations. Readers will be sucked in from the first page as this fast pace and alternating point of view chapters make it hard to put down. With jaw-dropping discoveries and realistic consequences, this novel is not to be missed.” I’m giving away five books.
