The world’s her oyster…until someone is stabbed with her shucking knife.

With a struggling pearl party business, sisters Kelly and Jodi Silverman are thrilled to land a weekend long jewelry party at a large estate. But the gothic house, complete with its weeping woman fountain, gives Kelly a bad vibe.

A nasty storm strands them at the spooky mansion. And when the birthday gal is found with Kelly’s shucking knife poking from her chest, they’re not only stuck in the creepy house with a murderer roaming the halls but Kelly’s accused of the crime.

Can Kelly and Jodi piece together the limited clues, prove their innocence and stay alive? Or will this pearl party be their last?

If you love comedy mystery a la Clue, you’ll love Murder of Pearl, Book 1 in the Pearl Party 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.)

Follow her on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Goodreads, Bookbub, Pinterest and Tiktok.

Q&A With the Author

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

 This book is based on two real individuals who actually ran a pearl business, so I had a really fun time bringing their fictional counterparts to life.  And then, of course, sticking them in hot water and letting them figure their way out.  The most fun was letting the real Kelly and Jodi read the book and finding out that they thought I did a great job at pegging their personalities (including adding little tidbits that I recalled from attending their pearl parties that really fit them and made their characters almost identical to them).

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

Oh, yeah!  I’ve got a lot of books coming out this year including Pearl Party Mysteries Book 2.  I’ve also got another fun cozy series with a mature heroine called Middle Age is Murder.  Book 1, Moving is Murder, just debuted last Christmas and I’ve got another one planned for this December as well.  I’ve also got a books coming out in each of my other series (ranging from adventure to contemporary fantasy to more cozies!).  Check them all out at 

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

I’m planning on adding to each of my current series but I’ve also got another new contemporary cozy fantasy series in the works that will debut later this year, too.  It’s a really fun romp into fantasy, but very light, so even if you’re not a big fantasy fan, you can still enjoy it!

How long have you been writing? 

I have always enjoyed writing ever since I was a kid, but got away from it as I built my career.  I started writing seriously in 2019 and haven’t stopped since!

Anything more you would like to say to your readers and fans? 

I really hope everyone is enjoying reading my stories as much as I enjoy writing them.  And please feel free to reach out to me via email or social media!  I love talking with readers ☺
