I should have done this in the morning, but alas, I was tired and kind of lazy. It’s still the day, so without much more delay – read below to see the new cover reveal for James J. Cudney and number 6 in the Braxton Campus series – Frozen Stiff Drink…

If you can’t remember it, how do you prove you didn’t do it?
Eva Hansen wakes in the hospital after being struck by lightning and discovers her mother, Kat, has been murdered. Eva was found unconscious down the street. She can’t remember what happened but the police are highly suspicious of her.
Determined to clear her name, Eva heads from Seattle to London—Kat’s former home—for answers. But as she unravels her mother’s carefully held secrets, Eva soon realizes that someone doesn’t want her to know the truth. And with violent memories beginning to emerge, Eva doesn’t know who to trust. Least of all herself.

The Last Affair by: Margot Hunt
Publish Date November 26, 2019 by MIRA
Love may be blind, but obsession’s a real killer.
Nora Holliday is not that kind of woman. Not the kind who has an illicit affair with a married man. But Josh Landon is everything Nora’s alcoholic husband isn’t. And now she and Josh are so infatuated, they can’t stay away from one another.
Abby Landon, Josh’s daughter, is home from college nursing a broken heart. She’s seeking solace, not more scandal, so when she catches her dad kissing Nora, she vows to take the homewrecker down.
And as for Abby’s mother and Josh’s wife, Gwen? To anyone on the outside looking in, the mother of two appears to be living the ideal suburban life.
Until she winds up dead.
The serene seaside town of Shoreham has always been the perfect place to raise a family—not somewhere housewives are brutally murdered. So who killed Gwen Landon, and how many twisted secrets will be exposed as the vindictive plot comes undone?

I apologize for being MIA – I’ll discuss that in a later post.
Happy Halloween!! Today’s post is to promote a collection of murder mystery short story mash up. What better way to spend the one, spooky themed day out of the year than to read short stories written by several authors? The answer to this question is simple – there is no better way. Unless you’re watching classic movies like The Nightmare Before Christmas or Hocus Pocus – those are the only exceptions.
This will be a short and sweet review, as it is very difficult, for me anyway, to write about several short stories without giving away any of them. I love a good murder mystery/thriller type story. There’s a mixture of different dates and settings in this book. So, you could be reading something in historical fiction or another detective type story. Each author has a different and unique way of telling a story. That, to me, is very important when putting together one book of different stories.
Some stories I’m like…what?
Not in a bad way, I promise. The Rose Slayer story…I have to say was one of the ones I actually liked because of the unique way of telling this kind of story. Like I said, this is hard to write without giving away anything.
So, I’ll get to the point. I liked this collection. I’m also a huge thriller/mystery nerd, as I’ve stated before, so I had to jump on this tour for that reason. I wasn’t disappointed. If you’re not into the whole genre, that’s perfectly fine, watching those movies listed above is perfectly fine – anything other than that, you’re doing a Halloween a total disservice. I’m kidding!!! Maybe a little…
I would say this collection ranks up with my other favorite collection of short stories by Raoul Dahl. Oh yes, I do.
