A new hometown. A murdered aunt. Mysterious talking animals. Divorce just turned interesting.

Ellie Byrne’s pending divorce from her cheating husband threatens to leave her broke and homeless. But when she inherits a bed and breakfast in the unique town of Salem Falls, her prayers may be answered.

That is, until she finds out her aunt didn’t just die on the property, she was murdered. And shortly after Ellie arrives, she finds herself the target of threatening messages and hostile attitudes from almost everyone in town. And after someone chucks a rock through her window, she begins to fear for her life.

Can Ellie discover which one of them offed her aunt? Or will the bed and breakfast she’d hoped would provide a fresh start put her in the grave?

If you love middle-aged heroines, talking pets, and quirky small town settings, you’ll love book 1 in this charming paranormal women’s fiction cozy mystery series.

About Nellie H. Steele 

Award-winning author Nellie H. Steele writes in as many genres as she reads.

Addicted to books since she could read, Nellie escaped to fictional worlds like the ones created by Carolyn Keene or Victoria Holt long before she decided to put pen to paper and create her own realities.

When she’s not spinning a cozy mystery tale, building a new realm in a contemporary fantasy, or writing another action-adventure car chase, you can find her shuffling through her Noah’s Ark of rescue animals or enjoying a hot cuppa (that’s tea for most Americans.)

Q&A With the Author

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?  

I really enjoyed writing the characters.  First, I loved bringing an older heroine into the mix.  Ellie is fifty and life isn’t turning out the way she expected.  I love that she’s learning that her life isn’t over, but really just starting. She’s got an entire new adventure waiting ahead of her.  I also had a fabulous time writing the dialogue for both pets.  Lola and Cleo get to say and do things a human character couldn’t or wouldn’t which adds an entirely new layer to the writing as I get to really experiment with a new type of character.

Do you have any other books you are working on that you can tell us about?  

I’ve got several!  I’m currently working on Book 4 in my Maggie Edwards Adventure series along with the second book in a new pearl-themed cozy mystery.  And I’ll soon be getting to the second book in Middle Age is Murder! 

Can you tell us about what you have planned for the future?  

I’ve got a number of things going on from adding to my current series to launching new series!  I’m in the middle of working on an entirely new idea (that I hope will be launching later this year) that’s got a fun, magical spin!

How long have you been writing?  

I wrote short stories as a kid and even started a novel then, but I started seriously writing in early 2019 and haven’t stopped since!  In that time, I’ve created eight series with a variety of different characters in several genres.
