Wands in a Lifetime: Spellbound Paranormal Cozy Mysteries 1-3

Author: Annabel Chase Narrator: Emily Lawrence Release Date: March 2021

Curse the Day: The only magic Emma Hart believes in is caffeine and the power of the dryer to lose one sock per load. A chance encounter lands her in Spellbound, a town where supernaturals have been cursed to remain for centuries-probably not the best time for Emma to discover that she's actually a witch. Between the recent murder of the town's public defender, a goblin accused of theft, remedial witch classes, and the attention of one smoking hot vampire, Emma struggles to navigate this unfamiliar terrain without losing her mind . . . or her life. Doom and Broom: Emma Hart hasn't had a moment's peace since her arrival in Spellbound. When a werewolf is found dead and Daniel is named as the prime suspect, Emma takes the initiative to prove that the angel's halo is firmly intact. The heat is on as Emma struggles to get a grip on her broomstick and identify the killer before it's too late. Spell's Bells: When a sleeping dwarf is found entombed in a glass coffin and remedial witch Sophie is blamed, Emma Hart must defend her friend while trying to get to the bottom of the enchantment. The investigation lands Emma smack dab in the middle of Spellbound's dating scene. Emma knows it's time to kick her witchy skills up a notch if she expects to survive Thursday night speed dating and keep sweet Sophie from a life in paranormal prison.

Picture Perfect Frame Audiobook

Picture Perfect Frame

Author: Lynn Cahoon Narrator: Susan Boyce Release Date: March 2021

In the new Tourist Trap mystery from the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a new art studio has opened in the coastal California town of South Cove-but it's about to turn into a crime scene . . . As the owner of Coffee, Books, and More, Jill Gardner likes to support other Main Street businesses, so she attends a paint-and-sip event where, sadly, her brushstrokes look more like blobs. It's still fun, though-aside from some disruption by a couple doing more sipping than painting. Jill's police-detective boyfriend is on alert, but a designated driver volunteers to take the drunken pair back to their bed and breakfast, and everything seems resolved. Until the wife's body turns up the next morning back in the studio. The victim, Nan, is from out of town, so it's hard to imagine who'd have a motive aside from her spouse. Now, in between puzzling over her fortuneteller neighbor's strange behavior, preparing for her best friend's wedding, and pouring cups of java at the bookstore, Jill must uncover the secrets of Nan's life and find out who wanted her out of the picture . . .

El ladrón de meriendas (Comisario Montalbano 3) Audiobook

El ladrón de meriendas (Comisario Montalbano 3)

Author: Andrea Camilleri Narrator: Javier Portugués Release Date: March 2021

Vuelve el inspector Salvo Montalbano y su particular forma de ver el mundo desde el imaginario pueblo de Vigàta, en Sicilia. Tercera entrega de la serie del comisario que ha conseguido un espacio propio y original en la literatura policiaca contemporánea. Sus anteriores andanzas han trazado su polifacético perfil que, como demuestra esta nueva aventura, está lejos de agotarse en el simple estereotipo. En esta ocasión el comisario debe investigar el asesinato de un comerciante jubilado, cuya amante, una joven tunecina desaparecida tras el crimen, es objeto de todas las sospechas. Sin embargo, las pesquisas guían a Montalbano hacia el turbio mundo de los servicios secretos y su sucia guerra contra el terrorismo internacional. La razón de Estado se ve sometida a su implacable instinto de justicia, «quijotesco» según uno de los agentes secretos. Al mismo tiempo, la trama nos reserva sorpresas inusitadas, como un Montalbano profundamente conmovido por el destino del hijo de la joven acusada hasta el punto de proponerle matrimonio a su tan paciente como lejana compañera Livia. Como todas las obras de Camilleri que tanto disfrutan sus cientos de miles de lectores en todo el mundo, El ladrón de meriendas es un irónico pero tierno recorrido por la cara más humana del homo sapiens, con personajes cuyo realismo surge precisamente de la penetrante y compasiva mirada de don Salvo. El duro universo de la inmigración ilegal, de los barrios populares mediterráneos, de los fríos burócratas al servicio del Estado, o el de la solidaridad femenina aparecen plasmados con pasmosa nitidez en cada una de las escenas de la novela, convirtiéndonos inevitablemente en testigos y cómplices no sólo de la intriga sino también de un entorno que acaba siéndonos sorprendentemente familiar.

Author: Renee George Narrator: Margaret Strom Release Date: March 2021

That is, when I can find my glasses, my feet don't hurt, and my scent-induced psychic ability isn't showing me crimes.

My former intern at Belliza Beauty aka the Job Stealer, Carmen Carraway, is a featured presenter. Yuck. Throw in an ex-boyfriend, a number one fan, a brewing scandal, and a dead body, and my relaxing birthday weekend is DOA.
