DANDELION DEAD
(A Natural Remedies Mystery)
by
Chrystle Fiedler

Summary

Business is blooming at Natures Way Market & Cafe, and shop owner and naturopathic doctor Willow Mc Quade has never been happier. Her new medicinal garden is a hit with villagers, and she's helping her ex-boyfriend Simon and husband-and-wife team David and Ivy create Pure, an organic winery powered only by wind and sun.

Of course, it's only natural for Willow to want to have a little fun, too. When David and Ivy throw a festive opening for the winery, the party flows freely until after the toast, when smiles give way to looks of horror. Ivy's twin sister has been poisoned! The police reveal the fatal concoction was meant for David. But who could hold such a grudge? Amateur sleuth Willow takes a holistic approach to solving crimes, one in which the answer is not necessarily at the surface but is very often right under your nose and this time the truth could be a bitter pill to swallow.

Masked to Death
by
Christina Freeburn

Summary

A Caribbean cruise is the perfect setting for a Roget wedding, and Faith meeting Ted’s family. She also hopes the vacation gets their stalled romance moving, but it doesn’t take long for that dream to capsize. Ted’s daughter hates her. The ex-wife is adored. Odessa Roget is surly. And the banned father of a groom, John Roget, requests Faith’s assistance in bringing down a jewel theft ring masterminded by his ex-wife.
Having had a man she loved accuse her of a crime, Faith won’t let Odessa travel down the same path and agrees to help. Faith sets her course on uncovering the true criminals—which might be a groom’s best friend. The romantic week turns disastrous as a wedding is interrupted, suspicious deaths point to murders, and Ted’s daughter schemes to reunite her parents. Instead of diamonds being a girl’s best friend, Faith finds they’re cruising her toward Davy Jones’ Locker.

A DANCER IN THE DUST
by
Thomas H. Cook

Summary
Twenty years ago, Ray Campbell, now a cautious risk-management consultant, was a well-intentioned aid worker dedicated to improving conditions in Lubanda, a newly independent African country. He is forced to reconsider that year of living dangerously when a friend from his time in Lubanda is found murdered in a New York alley. Signs suggest that this most recent tragedy is rooted in the far more distant one of Martine Aubert, the only woman Ray ever truly loved and whose fate he’d sealed in a moment of grievous error: “In Lubanda, twenty years before, I’d rolled the dice for a woman who was not even present at the table, and on the outcome of that toss, a braver and more knowing heart than mine had been forfeited.”
