I have talked enough about Christmas over the last few weeks. I blame this on Hallmark’s Original Christmas movies in July, but I seem to be past it now and I need to worry about more pressing issues. Halloween. Yes yes.. I know..too early, but it’s not. This year I want to to win the group costume contest at the Willits KOA Halloween Spectacular this October. It’s a pretty popular event, and once you have booked a spot, you get first rights to that spot the next year. This of course means you see the same people year after year. This will be our third year. The past few years the same two families have beat out everyone for best costumes and best group costumes. There is no doubt they deserve those awards. Their costumes are AMAZING! Seeing what their costumes are each year is a huge part of the fun. I think I mentioned it before that I want the whole family to be Demigorgons from Stranger Things. But the costumes can’t just be regular costumes…they have to have that special something something added, so I am going to try and make the faces open up to scare people. Hubby thought it would be too complicated, but one tiny search on YouTube came up with some great results. No reason to reinvent the wheel. Just YouTube it!!

— Think Fast. Talk Faster. —

A vault full of French fascist gold just waits to be taken.

It’s the early days of 1940 and Paris has settled into the new normal — a war where no one’s bothered to show up. As uncertainty permeates the darkened City of Light, a secretive organization works to concentrate the wealth and power of France with a select few. For them, Hitler is an ally.

For Les Boots, things could not be more in their favor. After a decade of breaking hearts and getting by, the sexy and sophisticated trio of con artists decide it’s time for something completely different. How hard, after all, could heisting a vault be? With the help of an English boy’s gift for forgery, a German Jesuit with a knack for truck engines and hopscotch, and a Danish soloist who keeps her fingers loose by busting strongboxes, Le Boot Hill Gang mount up and take on le beau monde of Paris.

They’re sure they can deal with the dogged investigator, the murderous terrorist, and the nasty rival gang. They think they can even manage when the neighbors to the east finally get around to invading.

But none of them counted on the relentless pursuit of a spoiled society girl, out to get whatever — or whomever — she wants.

Hubbert & Lil: The Complete Series
by Gallagher Gray
4.6 Stars (89 Reviews)
Genre: Mystery | Mystery, Thriller & Suspense

FREE for a limited time


To know Aunt Lil is to love her. Everybody’s favorite senior amateur sleuth is eighty-four years young, with a taste for Bloody Marys at any time of day, a fine-tuned appreciation of life’s other pleasures, and a world class talent for detecting. Her nephew, Theodore Hubbert — T.S. for short — is her witty, beleaguered sidekick in a quartet of wild adventures that careen from the staid Wall Street bank where T.S. spent thirty years, through Hell’s Kitchen and Manhattan’s fashion world, with a grand finale at the ballet.

The dynamic partners in crime reveal an impressive array of smarts, street savvy, and moxie, mixed with a poignant compassion for those embroiled in the professional jealousies, chilling family secrets, and sexual predation they uncover. They’re a thoroughly endearing odd couple — T.S. with his perfectly groomed appearance and impeccably ordered existence (overseen by his imperious felines, Brenda and Eddie) is the perfect counterpoint to the captivating force of nature that is Auntie Lil.

Fans of Miss Marple, Miss Silver, Miss Seeton, Mrs. Pollifax, Jessica Fletcher, Agatha Raisin, Henrie O, Hercule Poirot, and their many distinguished silver-haired colleagues, will be thoroughly delighted. Aficionados of cozy authors like Dorothy Cannell, Carolyn Hart, M.C. Beaton, Joanne Fluke, Jana DeLeon, and Alexander McCall Smith will be equally charmed!

PARTNERS IN CRIME (Hubbert & Lil Cozy Mystery Series Book 1)

Before he’s even had his first post-retirement cup of coffee, a murder in the stuffy Wall Street bank from which T.S. retired hours earlier launches his second act. With partners dropping like flies, his flamboyant Auntie Lil steps in to facilitate his career change from personnel manager to amateur sleuth.

CAST OF KILLERS (Hubbert & Lil Cozy Mystery Series Book 2)

Auntie Lil has “volun-told” T.S. into serving lunch at a Manhattan soup kitchen when suddenly a little old lady jumps up, clutching at her throat… and drops dead. The soup kitchen regulars, a crew of snooty failed actresses from the Eisenhower era, appear so grief-stricken that Auntie Lil (once again) offers up her nephew’s services, this time to sort out the woman’s real identity. After all, T.S. muses, it’s not like she was murdered.Famous last words.

DEATH OF A DREAM MAKER (Hubbert & Lil Cozy Mystery Series Book 3)

As we should expect, the brilliantly vital Auntie Lil has a colorful past — which includes a larger-than-life love affair with a fabled multimillionaire. But when the gentleman suddenly asks to see her after twenty years and then is killed in a car bomb explosion in Manhattan, Auntie Lil sets out — with trusty T.S. by her side — to solve the puzzling crime and clear Max’s name of suspicions of mob-entanglement.

A MOTIVE FOR MURDER ((Hubbert & Lil Cozy Mystery Series Book 4)

When a body is discovered swinging from the curtain at The Nutcracker, the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy takes on a whole new meaning. As the ballet board’s latest member, Auntie Lil is a natural to investigate the murder. She even takes her first ballet lesson — stay tuned for hilarity!

4.5 Stars (23 Reviews)
Genre: History | Westerns

FREE for a limited time

In the classic American Western-style, veteran author Matt Cutugno weaves a riveting story of two men struggling to survive in the days following the Civil War in his new novel, THE GODLESS MEN. The time is 1868. Three short years after the awful destruction caused by the war. The place is the Kansas-Missouri border. A land savaged by years of bloody fighting.

Two men share a common past. First as boys riding for the famed Pony Express; then as soldiers bravely serving opposing sides in battle. One blue. One gray. When the war was over, they each sought new lives. One became the sheriff of Lawrence, Kansas. He is a good, though lonely, man who sought peace in troubling times. The other, a rebel from Missouri, now a hired gun, who found himself a wanted man, accused of terrible crimes.

Destiny brings them together again in THE GODLESS MEN as their lives play out against a backdrop of the post-war exploitation of the West. Railroads rule the day as the seemingly endless prairie becomes more civilized, driving the Indians further from their ancestral homes, while slaughtering the vast herds of wild buffalo. Moneyed and greedy men are everywhere. They pull the strings and call the shots.

Amidst such volatile days, can a sheriff find contentment in the law and can an outlaw find solace running from it? Only time and fate will tell.
