Since my previous publications have been romance novellas, I'm finding a cozy mystery a bit of a different proposition.
One thing I like is the ability to write in a series about the same set of characters. Perhaps it's because my romances were shorter stories, I found myself wondering at the ending "What is going to happen to them now?", and I hope my readers have these same feelings.
With a cozy mystery, I can follow that thread. Island Charms is a mystery in which Abby Addison answers a call for help from an old college friend Nikki. The mug in the picture displays the logo of the chain of fitness outlets Nikki owns.
I am now working on the second in the series, Murder at the Island Spa, which has Abby trying to uncover a killer in a luxury Spa on Vancouver Island. This one involves her family in a much stronger role. The third in the series is so far just vague thoughts running through my head on sleepless nights.
I still enjoy my happy ever after romances, but it's nice to get a change of scene sometimes.
I hope you'll join me on December 13th at my release party for Island Charms. Stop in to chat or just to listen, and enter a draw for a prize. It should be great fun!
