My Colorful Conundrum

My Colorful Conundrum

Hi, I’m Lisa, and I’m pretty sure I’m losing my grasp on reality.

After getting struck by strange purple lightning, everything I paint now comes to life. I’m the only one who can see or talk to them, though… which begs the question: are they really there?

When my art school mentor turns up dead, everyone is quick to point the finger at me.

But what if I’m not the only one who emerged from that storm with strange new powers? Whether or not I like it, I’ll need to rely on these living “pigments” of my imagination to help crack the case.

The clock is ticking. Can I prove not only my innocence, but also my sanity?

The Merry Messy Mummy

The Merry Messy Mummy

Every time my best friend Hazel and I try to transition out of cleaning other people's homes and into anything else, we end up cleaning up a crime scene in our sleepy hometown of Cooper's Cove, Maine.

Our latest job sounds perfect—preparing the inside of an old lighthouse for the town's Festival of Lights. Before we can scrub the place spic and span, we're face-to-face with a mummified murder victim in the lighthouse's basement!

When a local paranormal investigation group jumps at the chance to connect with the dearly departed, a member of their team goes missing, leaving no shortages of suspects. Adding insult to injury, all clues suggest that her disappearance is tied to the mummy. Go figure.

As the clock strikes down to the festival's opening day, Hazel and I dust off our sleuthing skills and race against her law enforcement brother in a mad dash to see who can solve the mysteries first.

Can we find the person—or persons—behind these crimes before it's lights out for us?

Paws & Probable Cause

Paws & Probable Cause

My name is Moss O’Malley, and I’ve just been sentenced to three years in the magical corrections system. Thanks to my thieving ways—or rather the fact I got caught—I have to live the next three years as a cat, unable to shift back to my human form or use magic of any kind.

Just when I think I’m about to lose my mind for good, an agent breaks me free on the condition I’ll help with one of her cases. So now I must serve and protect, using my criminal wiles to catch others doing the same kinds of things that got me locked up in the first place.

It beats languishing at the cat rescue—sure—but will I be able to catch the super-powered bad guys without having any powers of my own to call on?

Hexed Hair Day

Hexed Hair Day

This beauty witch has to rescue herself when her hometown gets a close shave with a Scrooge of a thief.

When it comes to hair, my long, silky mane of fairytale renown is the envy of every woman in town. These lovely locks aren't only for looks—they're also the source of my beauty magick!

Unlike another long-haired princess trapped in a turret, the only tower I'm hiding in is one of my own makings. An unprincely royal broke my heart during a Christmas Eve past and left my emotions in a tangled mess.

When a thief steals the angel topper from our town’s Christmas wishing tree, I'm forced out of my holiday funk to ferret out the bandit. Soon I get an unwanted fringe benefit—the return of the pompous prince, and he's determined to help.

No potion or spell will heal my heart, (believe me, I’ve tried), but perhaps working side-by-side with him will. Can I leave my comfort zone and comb the town for the tree's lost topper and the person who took it? Or will my hair tie me—and my prince—up in a fatal end?

Merlin Kills a Zombie

Merlin Kills a Zombie

When my cat brought me a dead bird as a present, I cringed.

When that dead bird suddenly flitted back to life, I screamed.

At first, I shrugged it off as one of the random things that happens when your roommate is a magical cat, but then it kept happening.

Turns out a familiar foe is creating an army of undead creatures with the goal of forcing us to surrender. But Merlin and I refuse to let dark magic prevail—not when the entire existence of magic is now at stake.

And if magic dies, so too will all who wield it.

Oh no, my cat will NOT become a casualty in this unholy war. I’m ready to fight my way through a million zombies and then take out the big bad, too. Nothing can come between this witchy cat and his familiar—and I’m ready to prove it.

Red Hot Wolfie

Red Hot Wolfie

What big teeth you have… this Little Red Riding Hood retelling has a little magick, a lot of wolf, and a howling good mystery!

I’m the witchy version of the Caped Crusader, and I have the red cloak to prove it. This garment has healing powers, but neither it nor my personal magick can treat the injured wolf I find on my doorstep.

While tending his wounds, I discover he’s the stuff of legends—a shifter who also happens to be the new town veterinarian I’ve been anxious to meet. His past, however, is as clouded as his memory.

As I teach him about his inner wolf and uncover his deepest secrets, a murder rocks our sleepy town. All evidence points to a forest creature with sharp claws and big teeth…

The full moon is rising, and it looks like it’s up to me to prevent further harm. Can I uncover the culprit behind the killings? Or will I end up a snack for a hungry wolf?

Merlin the Magical Fluff

Merlin the Magical Fluff

My name is Gracie Springs, and I am not a witch… but I’m pretty sure my cat is. I first started to get suspicious when he jumped just a little too high while chasing after a robin in our front yard. I knew for sure when he opened up his mouth and addressed me by name!

The first thing he told me? That he doesn’t like the name I gave him—even though “Fluffy” fits him like a warm sweater at Christmas. Now we’ve compromised on “Merlin the Magical Fluff,” which according to him references his long and proud lineage just fine.

After that small matter was settled, he informed me that I must uphold his secret or risk spending the rest of my life in some magical prison. I agreed, not knowing it would turn into a full-time job of covering his tracks and fibbing our way out of some pretty tight spots.

When my boss at the local coffee shop turns up dead as a dormouse, things go from challenging to practically impossible… especially since all my coworkers seem to think I’m to blame.

Here’s hoping my witchy cat can charm our way out of this one, because right now it looks like I’m cursed if I do and charged with murder if I don’t. Yikes!

Secrets of the Specter

Secrets of the Specter

I’m Mags McAllister, and I am an honest-to-goodness modern-day candlestick maker. I work in my family’s shop in the historic district of Larkhaven, Georgia, and also make a pretty penny from sharing videos of my process online.

My life is simple, quiet, and all mine… until a white cat with mismatched eyes shows up outside my shop and refuses to leave. When I take him home, things get really weird. As in, I can now see things and people that were never there before.

It gets even freakier when a voiceless spirit introduces herself to me via a handwritten letter. This specter claims that I share her name and will also share her fate if we can’t solve the mystery that’s haunted our town since 1781… and quickly, because she won’t be able to maintain her strength for much longer.

Talk about a cold case! Can I actually find a way to free my eighteenth-century counterpart? Or has my new feline companion just signed my death warrant by opening my eyes to the secret supernatural plane in our otherwise sleepy small town?

Vampire for Hire

Vampire for Hire

Something’s up with the Paranormal Temp Agency, and I’m going to find out what that is. For my last two assignments, the cat boss Mr. Fluffikins had to drag me in kicking and screaming. This time around, I’m all too willing to play their little game. It’s high time I learned why they plucked me from my ordinary everyday life and thrust me into this crazy new world filled with danger and magic.

But it’s not going to be easy. Especially when the PTA orders me to help resident vampire Connie investigate a new coven that’s just popped up in our sleepy little town of Beech Grove. For this mission, they grant me temporary vampire status—and all the perks and the punishments that come with it.

The real kicker? If we don’t solve this one soon, I could be stuck as an immortal monster forever…

But that’s just how it goes when you’re a part-time vampire.

Merlin Fights a Ghost

Merlin Fights a Ghost

It was hard enough serving as my witchy cat’s familiar when we only had to deal with threats we could see. Now he’s gotten himself into a bitter feud with a newly dispatched ghost, leaving me to wonder… How in the heck are we supposed to defeat this thing?

I miss the simple days when all I had to worry about was finishing my thesis paper and not getting fired from my part-time job as a barista.

And, yeah, even though I didn’t choose the magic life, it sure as heck chose me. Now all I have to do is to keep myself alive long enough to appreciate some of the perks.
