The Ever After Mysteries
Everyone loves a fairy tale. Timeless stories, ordinary people, extraordinary events. But what happens if those events lead to a not-so-happily ever after?
Seven fairy tales retold in unusual ways. They all occur during the “Roaring 20s” and include mysteries. We call them, “The Ever After Mysteries.”
The Last Gasp by Chautona Havig
A cigarillo girl at one of the finest theaters in town, Lucinda Ashton has dreams that don’t include the movie industry.
At the pinnacle of his Hollywood career, Garrison Prince’s reign ends tonight.
So, when gunshots ring out just as intermission begins, Lucinda finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a brouhaha that leaves three dead, and no one has a clue why.
The Last Gasp blends “Cinderella” with murder and enough crime and story clues to keep you on the edge of your seat.
A Giant Murder by Marji Laine
Would you like a shot of… death with that, sir?
Josephine Jacobs was just doing her job, serving at an exclusive party, so why is she now being accused of shooting TG Taggert?
With her long-time friend, Office Porter O’Brien, Josie sets out to clear her name and find out who really killed “the giant,” and clear her name.
A Giant Murder offers a retelling of “Jack and the Beanstalk” with enough clues and suspects to keep you looking over your shoulder. We’d recommend Kevlar… but it hasn’t been invented yet!
When the Pilot Falls by April Hayman
In 1923, there aren’t many pilots, but Willie Labeau didn’t let that stop… her.
She has a second chance at a fabulous job doing what she loves. There’s just one caveat. No questions about her new boss’ past. From anyone. Ever.
Hugh Taylor has secrets that he’s not willing to share with anyone, but can he trust Willie to keep her word and leave his past where it belongs? In the past?
When the Pilot Falls offers a retelling of “East of the Sun, West of the Moon” that will keep you gripped to the edge of your seat as you watch hearts soar and daring dos.
Murder at the Empire by Cathe Swanson
Some girls want fast lives in speakeasies, dripping with ropes of pearls.
Gayle Wells just wants a car—oh, and to be a movie palace organist in Chicago.
As the newest organist at the Empire Theater in Chicago, she’s surrounded by fabulous art and well on her way to earning that car.
Are a few pieces of art really enough motive for the string of murders?
Murder at the Empire offers a retelling of “The Nightingale” that blends with murder with enough crime and story clues to keep you on the edge of your seat.
The Lost Dutchman’s Secret by Rebekah Jones
There’s a deadly secret in them thar hills—and gold, or so they say.
When her father says he needs money to pay off a local man, Dorothy Hodges doesn’t know what she’s supposed to do. After all, it’s not like she can spin gold out of thin air.
In this twist on Rumplestilskin and the legend of the Lost Dutchman Mine in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, Rebekah Jones blends mystery, intrigue, and… murder?
Find out in The Lost Dutchman’s Secret.
Silencing the Siren by Denise Barela
Andrew Grayson thought he had everything… until he met her.
She’s just a Coney Island freak show exhibit–or is there more to Annabelle Thompson than the sweet girl in a wheelchair?
He loves her, but she’s gone, and Andrew doesn’t know if he is ready to believe she’s really dead.
Silencing the Siren offers a retelling of “The Little Mermaid” that will keep you gripped to the edge of your seat as you watch the story unfold.
Slashed Canvas by Liz Tolsma
Held prisoner by all she’s lost, Katarina’s about to lose all she has.
After Grand Duchess Katarina Volstova finds her daughters and their nanny missing, the loss overshadows the grief she’s been living in since her escape from the Russian revolution. A painting at the Louvre may just hold the key to finding the kidnapper before she never sees her girls again.
Slashed Canvas offers a retelling of The Lost Princess that mingles self-centered grief, spoiled little girls, and proof that nothing will stop a mother from saving her children.
