I have been so excited about launching this newest Cozy Mystery series! Cabin 9 Mysteries will take place near the fictional small town of Old Mill, Indiana. Hannah Taylor Reigler, her friends call her Taylor, has moved to Indiana to begin a Bed & Breakfast venue on the Whispering Oaks Campgrounds. The grounds that now contain a Main Lodge and nine log cabins has been closed for around 15 years. Taylor has recently inherited the property and hopes to spend the next month getting things ready to begin a quieter life away from Pittsburgh, PA into the more sedate life she has dreamed of for years. She is filled with anticipation to begin her new venture until she drives up into the grounds. Waist-high grass and weeds are the first to greet her.
Taylor is furious with the overgrown vegetation and begins to take pictures as proof that the man who was hired to keep the grounds cleared has not done his job. Aiming her phone’s camera toward Cabin 9, Taylor sees something that she had hoped she had left behind. She hasn’t been thrilled with her newly discovered ability to see dead people and even worse she can talk to them. That ghost down there at the last cabin needs to just go away!
At least this ghost isn’t as needy as the ones she left back in Pittsburgh! The old guy just wanted to set things right so that he could join his wife. It is after he fades away that she discovers the tall grass won’t be her only obstacle. The interior of the buildings is covered with a bout a decade and a half of dust. She isn’t sure she is ready for this much adulting.
Premise of the Cabin 9 Series
Okay, so I mentioned above that Taylor sees dead people just like the kid in the movie. In Campground Corpse and the forthcoming books, Taylor will help solve mysteries with the local Town Marshal who she also finds quite easy to look at and enjoyable to be around. She is often given clues in how to help the handsome law officer from the resident Spirit who happens to stay in Cabin 9 and is a distant relative of Taylor’s.
Florence Ann Reigler , Aunt Flossie, tries to explain the workings of the after-life to her living niece while guiding her to information. She will often act as an intermediary between Taylor and the ghosts who need help. Aunt Flossie can be a help and a bother but always delightful and funny to encounter. I think you will enjoy Taylor and her great-great-aunt Flossie as they stumble through solving mysteries together.
Now available on Amazon, Book 4 has been completed and is waiting for you to continue your journey with Roni Rainer, her family and her friends. The Title? Well, this one is called Missing in Beaver Falls. From the title, I hope you can guess that someone is missing rather than dead. Your mission, should you chose to accept it is: Who is missing? Who took them? Why?
I had fun writing this one! I thought that it might be interesting to see how different characters would react to a missing person in the small town of Beaver Falls. Some might be truly concerned while others might make some unfair assumptions.
“Missing” has some new things waiting for you!
Along with the mystery, I have introduced a few new characters into the series. You will meet Clay’s mother in Missing in Beaver Falls. I hope that you enjoy her as much as I did writing her! I also, took the opportunity to wrap the mystery of Jacqueline Abbott and why she is hiding from someone in Chicago. There is a fun little twist to that story!
Blurbs hopefully sell books.
Part of the blurb for the book: While placing campaign signs for Mitch Denton, who is running for Sheriff in Butler County, Indiana; Roni Rainer almost faints as her inner alarm system goes into to overload when she touches a discarded cup in the parking lot of Buck’s Bar. Someone is in trouble but who?
Oh, another fun thing added to Book 4 is that I included some recipes for you at the end of the book. I would love to know if you enjoyed getting those or not. So, is your curiosity piqued yet? Hmmm? I hope so! Well, what are you waiting for? Go on over and check it out!
On March 4, 2019 the third book in the Roni Rainer Mysteries series launched on Amazon. The book is available in both digital and print versions.
Roni’s up-cycling business is thriving with the help of Charlotte’s creative ideas along with Brody Scott’s wood sculptures. She and the board of directors are busy planning the opening of the Community Center in a few weeks.
Although life is good for her in the small town of Beaver Falls, Indiana she still suffers from the trauma of her abduction and the break-up of her marriage. For the last six months she has visited the large boulder that the locals refer to as Talking Rock. There is something about the solitude along with the energy of the stone that helps her fight the negative demons in her head.
Her visit is cut short when she finds the body of a local man on the western face of the rock. Will she be able to help the handsome Deputy Mitch Denton find the culprit?
