When Cassie Coburn moved to London, she never thought she’d be involved in a quadruple homicide. After a car accident ended her medical career before it even started, Cassie moved to London on a whim, expecting to see the sights and live the typical tourist backpacker lifestyle. Instead she finds herself accompanying a French private detective, Violet Despuis, as they attempt to find out who poisoned four people in the middle of London. Cassie’s life soon includes this crazy detective, an ancient landlady with a curious past, a mischeivous orange cat who likes going for walks on a leash, and a super hot pathologist that Cassie is sure is out of her league. And they haven’t even found the murderer yet… The Cassie Coburn mysteries are a cozy mystery series featuring a Sherlock-holmes style sleuth. If you want a light, fun, modern mystery featuring a San Francisco girl totally out of her element in London, and a crazy French woman who happens to be very good at noticing things, then this is the series for you.
Miki is used to sliding headfirst on a sled at a hundred miles an hour, but this might just be the craziest thing she’s ever done… When World Champion skeleton athlete Miki King fails a doping test after taking the wrong flu medication, she’s exiled to Australia, to run her aunt’s cafe in a small beachside resort town until all the media attention blows over back home in America. Expecting a break from her hectic life, Miki never expects to find a body on her second day in Ruby Bay. And to make matters worse, she was seen having an argument with the man the day before. With the local police chief convinced she’s the culprit, Miki – with the help of her new coworker Emily and a rather crazy old woman named Mary – has to find the murderer before she’s arrested and makes the headlines again, destroying any chance she might have of reviving her career. **Includes a recipe for lamingtons, a popular Australian desert*** Death Down Under is a full-length, humorous cozy mystery and the first book in the Ruby Bay mystery series set in Australia.
