Bloody Lessons: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery
4.5 stars in 148 reviews

In Bloody Lessons, it’s the winter of 1880, and the teachers of San Francisco are under attack: their salaries slashed and their competency and morals questioned in a series of poison pen letters.

Annie Fuller, the reluctant clairvoyant, has been called in to investigate by Nate Dawson, her lawyer beau, and the case becomes personal when they discover that Laura, Nate’s sister, may be one of the teachers targeted for attack.

In this installment in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series, readers will find the same blend of a cozy mystery and romantic suspense, played out against the historical backdrop of late 19th century San Francisco, that they found in Maids of Misfortune and Uneasy Spirits.

If you are new to this series, you will still enjoy spending time with the lively residents of Annie Fuller’s boarding house and visiting San Francisco when Golden Gate Park was filled with horse-drawn carriages, politics were controlled by saloon-keepers, and kisses were stolen under gaslight.

Bill and Rebecca Moore are an ordinary middle-aged couple raising two children in suburban Connecticut when an unsuccessful attempt on Rebecca’s life by a mysterious stranger leaves her with an extreme case of post-traumatic stress. To help her recover, Bill suggests a move to southern California where they buy and renovate an old house in a posh neighborhood.

When both children disappear from the house with no sign of forced entry, LAPD gumshoe Ed Van Allen suspects the Moores of murder, although Rebecca gamely tries to convince him the ghost did it. Turning the implausible into the possible as the case unfolds, Alternately amusing and frightening, Hynd lets the evidence build to a genuinely terrifying climax that features earthbound criminals as well as a not-so-subtle example of divine retribution.

A Golden Trail of Murder
No reviews yet

Montana winters are cold, icy and unforgiving. But when a tough old rancher freezes to death in the teeth of a savage Montana blizzard, only his grandson believes it was murder. He enlists the help of former newshound and sometimes-carpenter Ben Tripp to start poking around and asking questions to hopefully discover the truth. Tripp’s search leads him through an Old West that isn’t so old anymore. It’s a land of real estate brokers; Hollywood wannabes; militia units with Belgian automatics; corporate farmers with an eye for the bottomland and the bottom-line; and beautiful women. Tripp also discovers along the way that some things about the West will never change as he unravels a secret as old as the hills and—at least to some—worth more than life itself.

But what can Susanna really do to help her, and even if she does, will it be enough?

Out on a Limb: A Smoky Mountain Mystery (Nurse Phoebe)
4.5 stars in 437 reviews

All of Jourdan’s books are #1 bestsellers. This is her first work of fiction. It was the #1 Cozy Mystery and #2 Medical Fiction behind “Silver Linings Playbook.” Reviewers describe this cozy, scientific, medical mystery as “No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency of the Great Smoky Mountains”, “CSI Meets Animal Planet”, and “An Appalachian Michael Crichton.” In “Out on a Limb” Phoebe McFarland has just moved back to her hometown of White Oak, Tennessee, a sleepy rural community nestled in the mist-shrouded ridges and isolated hollows of the Smoky Mountains. Now she spends her days working as a rural home health care nurse, making calls on a quirky roster of housebound characters she’s determined to take care of whether they cooperate or not. She applies this same optimism to her love life, despite the fact that she’s been dating for 38 years without locating any husband material. When she runs into her childhood sweetheart, Henry Matthews, a wildlife ranger for the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it looks like she might’ve found her man. But Phoebe and Henry’s chance for romance has to be put on hold while they undertake a desperate search for a young woman who mysteriously vanished from the park during a gathering of world famous biologists and botanists, including a charismatic Frog Whisperer.
