Mystery. Romance. Danger.


Not the typical family vacation.

When Julia Lamontaigne arrives in Franklin, New Hampshire, she’s looking for an escape from the tragedies that have taken over her life. Haunted by the legacy of her beloved sister, and entrusted with her sister’s three orphaned children, Julia hopes for a summer of peaceful healing… And hopefully, bonding.

At first, the small New Hampshire town seems to be the perfect location. They quickly settle in and make friends with their eccentric neighbors, then begin work on their summer house – while Julia is drawn into a relationship with Robert Wilde, the handsome cop next door.

But Franklin is haunted, too – by the decades-old murder of a beautiful young artist, killed in the house at the end of Julia’s street. Even though everyone says that the case is solved, Julia can’t escape the feeling that there’s more to the story than she’s being told.

She’s right.

Someone doesn’t want the murder case re-opened. And they’re willing to kill again to stop it.

The house at the end of the street hasn’t begun to give up its secrets.

***Hello there, dear reader, please note this book is more of a romantic comedy with a small mystery in it. If you are looking for a hard-core whodunit or a more traditionally written mystery, this is not the book for you.****

The Hope Diamond is a delectable mystery with recipes!
Lily Bilbury needs to find the remnants of the French Blue and find them fast. It’s been three long years since her Italian husband cheated on her, and she is facing financial ruin. In desperation, she teams up with fellow housemaid, Francesca — an irascible Italian fashionista and self-proclaimed psychic. Together they search Villa Buschi for some of the most famous gems in the world, the diamonds that were cut away from the French Blue to make the infamous Hope.

But when Lily can’t find the diamonds, and nothing seems to go her way, she briefly contemplates running around ranting drivel and frightening the whole reserved population of Arona, Italy.

Follow Lily and several rambunctious rescues kittens on her quest for precious antiquities; a journey which may lead to something far better than long lost gems.

A Twisty Puzzler Complete with Dogs, Romance and a Backyard Body…Solve the mystery before you die laughing!

Start this laugh-out-loud mystery series from Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY Best-Selling author Amy Vansant. If Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum and the Golden Girls had a baby, it would be the Pineapple Port series!

If you like Jana Deleon, Angie Fox, Leslie Langtry, Susan M. Boyer, Gina-LaManna, Julie Smith or any fun, action-packed mystery, you’re about to find your next favorite series.

It’s bad enough finding a body in your back yard—especially when foul play’s involved. But when you discover the bones belong to the long-missing mom of the hottest guy in town, you’ve just made the world’s worst first impression!

Charlotte Morgan’s got every reason to take an intensely personal interest, even if solving a murder’s a bit of a stretch for a 26-year-old amateur sleuth raised in a 55-plus Florida retirement community–golf-cart racing’s usually about as exciting as it gets for her. But things are heating up in her world, and not just in the romance department. The hot guy’s uncle is Charlotte’s number one suspect. He’s debonair, he’s mysterious, he’s just a little too slick—and he’s dating a friend of Charlotte’s. If she doesn’t step up, who knows what could happen?

In Amy Vansant’s first Pineapple Port cozy mystery, quips get flung and puns get slung, making for a hilarious read, but even better, Pineapple Port’s just a place you want to hang out. Charlotte’s a pretty unique female protagonist, being the only chick, as a friend observes, in a roomful of hens, but Pineapple Port is a wonderful character in itself, as much a parallel universe as Hogwarts, with its own exotic customs and quirks. People have nicknames like Jenny Teacup (because she collects tea sets), exercise comes in the form of water aerobics, and Poolside Breakfast is a big social event. Vansant has perfect pitch when it comes to her human characters as well. No one can mention a restaurant without someone saying, “They have the best French toast!”

The Pineapple Port Mystery Series is perfect for fans of those reassuringly funny mysteries set in small towns, from Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple right on through Carolyn Hart and up to Julie Mulhern and Alan Bradley. If you happen to like romantic comedy, or even just funny mysteries—especially those with intrepid women sleuths– you’ll devour it!

“Amy is one of my favorite authors. I highly recommend all of her books. No matter what genre she writes in, she manages to create books that demand that the pages be immediately turned to find out what happened, because you really care about the characters.” ~ Dianne Harman, USA Todayand Amazon Chart #1 Bestselling Author
