Pies & Peril: A Culinary Competition Mystery (Culinary Competition Mysteries Book 1)
5 stars in 96 reviews

When Amy Ridley decided to compete in the Kellerton Summer Festival Pie Contest, the last thing she expected was to find the reigning pie queen, Mandy Jo, dead—a raspberry pie smashed on her face! Mandy Jo made fantastic pies, but she accumulated more enemies than baking trophies. But when Amy receives a note threatening her own life, she decides to do some investigating herself.

It seems that half the town has a reason to kill the mean pie queen, and Amy finds herself sifting through a list of suspects that’s longer than her list of recipes. Not to mention playing cupid for her love-shy best friend, fending off a baker intent on finding out her prize-winning culinary secrets, and ducking the deadly attentions of Mandy Jo’s killer. If Amy doesn’t find out who wanted the pie queen dead soon, her own goose may be cooked!

**Recipes included!**

Behind the Walls (Jolie Gentil Cozy Mystery Series Book 6)
5 stars in 20 reviews

There’s something hidden behind the walls of the hurricane damaged house Jolie bought in her New Jersey beach town. Something someone seems willing to kill for. After Jolie and Scoobie find a small sack of jewelry as they do a mold attack on her bungalow, Jolie is pursued by a purse thief and a burglar. But the guy she’s most worried about is the one who left an elderly auctioneer dead on her porch swing. In between appraising houses and planning a fundraiser for the food pantry (can you say liquid string contest?), Jolie tries to figure out if there is more stolen bounty around town. Is the feared killer the same person who burned some vacant houses, or the as-yet unmasked Peeping Tom? And are they willing to kill again to get to the hidden riches?

Her friends and local police warn her to butt out, but that’s just encouragement for a woman who likes to get to the bottom of things. Jolie wrestles with fear as she tries to get her cat, Jazz, to feel at home in the new house. Maybe an unexpected visitor can be a substitute for Aunt Madge’s golden retrievers.

And then there’s her love life. Jolie also needs to decide if she really wants to get back with her former boyfriend, Ocean Alley Press reporter George Winters. Or are feelings for someone else trying to get her attention?

99 Cent Mysteries 7/25/14 — Cheap Kindle Mysteries

We just don’t see enough novellas about vigilante nuns, but today’s cheap Kindle mysteries remedy that situation with a series of three well-reviewed $.99 Force of Habit titles by bestselling author James Scott Bell.

force2

Force of Habit
4.5 stars in 32 reviews

A vigilante nun cleans up the streets of Los Angeles. Sinners beware.

Just who is Sister Justicia Marie? And what is she doing to some of the toughest thugs in L.A.?

When a nun is viciously attacked, Sister Justicia takes it upon herself to find out what happened. The cops don’t like that. Neither does her Mother Superior at St. Cecelia’s. But when a couple of hoods try to stick up a liquor store and Sister J brings them down, something is unleashed inside her…something that will either confirm her calling . . . or destroy it.

From “one of the best writers out there, bar none” (Library Review) comes the start of a new series featuring a heroine unlike any other in crime fiction–Sister Justicia Marie, rogue nun.

If criminals are the knuckles, she is the ruler.

So be good.

An original novelette from national bestselling suspense author James Scott Bell.

Force of Habit 2: And Then There Were Nuns
4.5 stars in 16 reviews

She’s back…and the punks in L.A. are about to get knuckled under…

Sister Justicia Marie, the rogue nun who burst into action in FORCE OF HABIT, is back with a vengeance. Determined to love her enemies by kicking their butts, Sister J is getting on everyone’s bad side–her superior at St. Cecelia’s school; her confessor, Father Dom; the criminal boss who calls himself the Pope of Los Angeles; and any number of thugs and criminals who think they can get away with murder.

Not with Sister J on the case. “They are the knuckles,” she says. “I am the ruler.”

And this crime novelette is another great read in the FORCE OF HABIT series.

James Scott Bell is the bestselling and award winning author of many thrillers and books on the craft of writing. He makes his home in Sister J’s town, Los Angeles.

Force of Habit 3: Nun The Wiser
4.5 stars in 9 reviews

Sister Justicia Marie is just a nun trying to make L.A. a little bit safer. So why are so many people out to get her?

Sister J, and her young charge Sister Xuan, have started a new order, The Sisters of Perpetual Justice. Now they’re running a shelter for the homeless but also preparing for the streets. Which means mixed martial arts and kick boxing and other items not on the Vatican’s approved list. For there is still a criminal element out there and Sister J is convinced God has called her to stop the evil…by any means necessary.

But when a shocking murder takes place on the grounds of the shelter, a new threat emerges, one that has a very clear message for the nuns: “There is going to be hell to pay, and hell always collects.”

James Scott Bell is the bestselling, award-winning author of many thrillers and books on the craft of writing. He makes his home in Sister J’s town, Los Angeles.

Secret Bond (Jamie Bond Mysteries Book 2)
5 stars in 149 reviews

From New York Times, USA Today and #1 Kindle Bestselling author, Gemma Halliday…

Her name is Bond. Jamie Bond. And she is licensed to kill any pre-nup you can throw at her.

Catching cheating husbands became Jamie Bond’s life when her father was shot and wounded on the job, forcing Jamie to take over the family business: The Bond Agency. But three years later, the P.I. is shocked when the gun that wounded her father surfaces during a high-profile murder trial. Is this the connection Jamie’s been waiting for to finally nail her father’s shooter? But, oddly enough, Derek Bond doesn’t seem interested. In fact, if Jamie didn’t know better, she’d say he’s even trying to stop her from looking into it. Along with her team of bombshell investigators, Jamie suddenly finds herself in the middle of a cold case that’s heating up the media, dodging old grudges and new enemies, and questioning the motives of those closest to her. If she can live with the truth, the secrets Jamie uncovers may just bring down more than a marriage this time.
