It’s Crime Time in Paradise.

Hi, I’m Tara. Welcome to my virtual home! Feel free to have a look around, and make sure to check out my Coffee Lover’s Mystery series! You can also find out about upcoming events, read my journal, or send me a message.

Lush dangles the mystery of Raina’s whereabouts tantalizingly for a gratifyingly long time before descending into the tried-and-true cozy tropes: a corpse, cascading revelations about the dark side of the deceased, and a plucky heroine whose sleuthing inevitably leads to peril.

Grounds for Murder

Add this one to your list!!! It was full of great humor, entertainment and just everything you are looking for in a cozy mystery. Plus it had a really carefree, original young vibe to it, which was refreshing to come across.” — Amazon reader
