Paper Phoenix

by Michaela Thompson


First comes divorce, then comes murder…

…or at least sweet thoughts of murder. Maggie Longstreet has plenty of them after slimy, ambitious Richard trades her in for a more recent model. She’s so depressed she can barely get out of bed when Larry Hawkins, a seemingly not-at-all depressed acquaintance, commits suicide out of the blue. Suddenly Maggie goes on high alert, remembering something her evil ex said about Larry—something highly suspicious.

And from there, it’s just a short segué to a bracing new development:

“When some women get divorced they go back to school, I thought. Some do volunteer work at the hospital, or join communes and learn to birth calves. Some have affairs with inappropriate men. My new interest is burglary. Maggie Longstreet, former wife and mother, past president of the Museum Guild, now starting a career as a second-story woman.”

Fortunately, Maggie isn’t alone in her adventure—a very attractive, much younger man proves a lot more fun than Richard ever was. In fact, the real delight of this witty, sly mystery is seeing Maggie come alive again after a suffocating marriage. Set in the’70s, it has a bit of that Mad Men feel of women on the brink of something big. And completely unexpected.

Rosemarys-Gravy

Rosemary’s Gravy

by Melissa F. Miller


Rosemary Field never planned to work as a private, holistic chef for a demanding vegan actress. But then, plans have a way of going out the window when a girl’s parents skip town, leaving behind a half-million-dollar debt.

She needs the job, so she puts up with her boss’s diva antics and halfheartedly fends off the advances of the impossibly sexy stepson who comes with the high-paying gig. Then someone decides to kill the miserable movie star. It’s bad news for any chef when a client dies from an allergic reaction after eating your cooking. It’s even worse news for Rosemary because the police are determined to charge her with murder.

To restore her reputation (and stay out of prison), Rosemary has to find the real murderer–and fast. Her short list of suspects includes a womanizing race car driver, a powerful music producer, Hollywood’s hottest leading man, and, oh yeah, Felix, the dead woman’s stepson–which gets a little awkward when he and Rosemary start dating.

After a romantic dinner with Felix ends in food poisoning, she finds herself unattached, unemployed, and once again on the wrong side of the LAPD. She knows how to salvage an oversalted sauce, but can she salvage the disaster that is her life? And will the hunky homicide detective help her–or book her?

Captive-in-Chief

by Murray McDonald
