Kate Benedict Mystery Series Vol. 1-5
Meet Kate Benedict—a promising young British architect who solves mysteries on the side. And she has an edge—an unusual, supernatural talent: she sees mysterious, swirling, death-predicting auras hovering over the people around her. She uses these paranormal powers to save her aura-ridden friends, neighbors, and coworkers who are oblivious to the danger they’re in—and they never believe her. Everywhere Kate turns she ends up with a deliciously traditional cozy on her hands: whether she’s working at her elegant office in rainy London or traipsing around a grand Scottish castle during a weekend getaway, Kate’s always knee deep in intrigue.
Murder is Universal
Flying in the middle seat can literally be murder. Upon landing in Westbrook, Susan Wiles and new friend Valerie Holmes discover the man sitting between them is dead, presumably from a heart attack. Of course, Susan notices his blue lips and the snack spilled out onto the floor. The dead passenger, owner of a successful college preparatory company, has made enemies as a result of accepting bribes in exchange for Ivy League acceptance letters. His widow, a colleague of Susan’s son-in-law, Jason, doesn’t feel the police are taking the murder seriously. Jason has told stories in the past about his mother-in-law’s success as an amateur sleuth inspiring the widow to enlist Susan’s help.
The Trouble at Turtle Beach
Harried, overworked architect Kate Benedict has no sooner stepped off the ferry to a tiny, remote island in Seychelles, primed to de-stress and celebrate at a destination wedding, than she spots imminent danger – auras spinning above the heads of two people on the dock. One’s a stranger, but the other’s the groom! Kate has a gift – or possibly a curse. Unfortunately for her, she can predict death. When she sees the spinning circle of air above someone’s head, her heart sinks. She calls it an aura, and unless she can locate the source of danger and intervene, the person is destined to die within a matter of days.
When Odelia is invited to spend the weekend as a guest of Emerald Rohne, without a doubt the best actress of her generation, she’s over the moon. There’s only one problem: Emerald is allergic to cats, so Odelia is forced to leave her menagerie at home, something Max and the others are not happy about. And then the fun-filled weekend getaway takes a turn for the morbid when one of Emerald’s celebrity guests ends up dead in a suspected suicide.
