Died in the Wool - Spotlight

Today I'd like to shine a spotlight on a new release which is on my TBR pile. Died in the Wool by Peggy Ehrhart is the second book in the Knit & Nibble Mystery series. It was released this past Tuesday and has the cutest cover!

From the back cover:

When a murder shocks picturesque Arborville, New Jersey, Pamela Paterson and her Knit and Nibble knitting club suddenly find themselves at the center of the investigation-as suspects.

Pamela is ready to kick back and relax after a busy day selling stuffed aardvarks to benefit Arborville High School's sports program at the annual town festival. But just as she's packing up, she makes a terrible discovery-someone's stashed a body under the Knit and Nibble's table. The victim is Randall Jefferson, a decidedly unpopular history teacher after his recent op-ed criticizing the school's sports program. But the primary suspect has an alibi, and the only clue is a stuffed aardvark found on the victim's chest...Now the Knit and Nibblers must unravel the case quickly-before a crafty killer repeats a deadly pattern.

Knitting tips and delicious recipe included!

Currently Reading...

I'm currently reading Stabbed in the Baklava by Tina Kashian. This book is the second in the Kebab Kitchen Mystery series and was released yesterday!

This is her chance to prove herself and give the restaurant a big boost. With the help of her semi-retired parents, best friend, and Kebab Kitchen staff the event goes off with nary a hitch...until it's time to leave and Lucy finds Azad by their catering van with the murdered body of the best man inside!

The Chairman's Toys - Review & Giveaway



Jake Constable has given up his drug dealing ways and is trying to keep on the straight and narrow. Well, perhaps somewhat curvy and wide. He's been house sitting for the wealthy in Vancouver and gets talked into throwing a party at one of the fantastic mansions. The party gets out of hand, drugs are freely flowing, and the homeowner returns unexpectedly. Oh, and there's a dead body in the bathroom. Although the homeowner pretty much lets him off the hook, Jake still has to answer to his ex-wife, who got him the job. His former business partner, with whom he did not part on the best of terms, seems to be back in the picture, as well as the Chinese government. The curvy and wide has just gotten wider!

THE CHAIRMAN'S TOYS is simply a lot of fun. Jake Constable is a lovable loser. Sorry, Jake, but it's true. A former drug dealer, dependent on his ex-wife to find him jobs house-sitting mansions is not quite hero material. Yet, he's likable. He's a good friend, he's trying to be a better person, and he's funny. There's a smorgasbord of secondary characters including Chinese secret agents, a Norwegian drug dealer, and the Underwear King of Beijing! All of the characters are engaging and all have their idiosyncrasies adding to the fun. I particularly like Agent Wang.

THE CHAIRMAN'S TOYS is a fast paced romp through British Columbia. The writing is taut, the comedy is pithy, and the antics engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed this fun caperesque tale!


The Chairman's Toys

by Graham Reed

on Tour August 1-31, 2018


Vancouver, British Columbia – land of psychotically expensive real estate, high-grade cannabis, and Jake Constable. A man adrift.
After Jake quits the drug business, his realtor/ex-wife, Nina, gets him a job as a house sitter for her wealthy clients. Jake celebrates by throwing a party in the mansion he was hired to look after. Unfortunately, the guest list gets out of hand, leaving Jake to contend with a hallucinogenic-vitamin-dispensing yogi, a dead guy in the bathroom, and The Norwegian – a criminal force of nature with a grudge against Jake.
When the owner of the multimillion-dollar crime scene returns home prematurely, only Jake's inadvertent discovery of the man's politically incorrect business history saves him from having to clean up after the party. But he still has to come clean with his ex-wife. The situation threatens to turn into an international incident when Nina’s power broker uncle and a pair of secret agents from China show up to turn the screws on Jake. Soon after that his friends start disappearing. With the Chinese government leaning on him and The Norwegian out to settle an old score, Jake comes up with a desperate plan to dupe the secret agents, save his friends, and (why not?) solve the murder.

Editorial Reviews:

“...takes the reader on a fast, furious, and often hilarious tour. Watching him zigzag through the twisting plot is pure pleasure." - Publisher's Weekly
“Reed's lively mystery debut may be overloaded with colorful characters and tricky subplots, but too much of a good thing is still a good thing.” - Kirkus Reviews
“...definitely belongs on your short list of amiable stoner sleuths, along with Bart Schneider’s Augie Boyer and Hal Ackerman’s Harry Stein. The dark-comedy aspect of this debut will also appeal to fans of Chris Knopf, David Freed, and Tim Cockey.” - Booklist

Read an excerpt:

I was just starting to enjoy the party when The Norwegian came out of the bathroom and ruined everything.
At the time, I was dancing with a hyperkinetic yoga enthusiast named Windy. Or possibly Mindy. All attempts at verbal communication were being swallowed up by the blizzard of techno coming out of the forty thousand dollar stereo system. Which was fine by me since I didn’t imagine Windy-Mindy and I had all that much to talk about anyway.
She looked about a decade younger than me — clocking in somewhere south of thirty — and it was manifestly evident that her lifestyle choices were largely antagonistic to my own. Shrink-wrapped in Lululemon, Windy-Mindy radiated health and vigor as she bounced around in fuchsia Nikes performing an ode to the benefits of healthy living expressed through the medium of interpretive dance.
Exhausted by the spectacle, I took a breather and another belt of Woodford Reserve. In an attempt to bridge the cultural divide I waggled the bottle at Windy-Mindy, inquiring with my eyebrows. Her brow furrowed but the corners of her mouth did curl up slightly — one patronizing, the other amused. Or so the bourbon whispered to me.
It may have been correct because she countered by proffering her own bottle — the blue-tinted plastic kind that hikers and college students liked to clip to their backpacks. In her other hand were two small white tablets, which I lip-read to be Vitamin C.
I shrugged and swallowed.
The contents of the bottle turned out to be wheatgrass and champagne, a combination that tasted even worse than it sounded. I forgave Windy-Mindy when the vitamins started coming on about twenty minutes later. Every cell in my body began sending my brain a jubilant message of thanks and goodwill, as well as suggesting, by the way, that they wouldn’t mind getting to know every cell in Windy-Mindy’s body if the opportunity should arise.
This wasn’t my usual kind of trip and it made me suspect two things: (1) The tablets probably weren’t Vitamin C and (2) if Windy-Mindy was on the same ride, it might explain her unlikely but undeniable interest in me.
Another possibility was that she had heard I was Jake Constable, a.k.a. the host of the party. From there she might have leapt to the not-unreasonable conclusion that the twenty million dollar mansion in which the festivities were taking place was also mine. Which was true, in a very temporary but excruciatingly legal sense.
The actual owner of the house, Mickey Wu, had hired me to look after it while he was out of town. For most of the evening, my flagrant abuse of this responsibility had precluded me from enjoying the party. Which was too bad since it was turning into a real killer.
The place was mobbed with people, an undeniable relief in those early evening “will it happen?” moments, but now a source of concern. I took it as a matter of faith that the front door was still on its hinges as I hadn’t seen it close in hours. On the mezzanine, a velour-clad DJ was hunched over a laptop and two turntables, conjuring up humongous bass beats and mixing them with everything from sirens to symphonies. The crowd was loving it, up and moving on every available horizontal surface including the dining room table, much to the annoyance of the people clustered around it hoovering up lines of white powder.
When an albino wearing a lime green speedo and an impish grin threaded his way through the crowd on a Vespa I found myself on the verge of questioning whether the party had been such a brilliant idea after all. He was travelling at a reasonable speed and using his horn judiciously but I still couldn’t shake that harbinger-of-ill-fate feeling.
At least until I discovered Windy-Mindy and her narcotic vitamins. After that, I was blissfully surfing the moment, my worries gone and my eyes inexorably drawn to her endless curves as they took on a cotton candy glow. I frowned and shook my head, but the effect persisted.
I spent long, increasingly paranoid moments pondering whether an admixture of wheatgrass and champagne could give bourbon hallucinogenic properties until I noticed the sun winking at me from behind the skyscrapers of downtown Vancouver through the window behind her. I squeezed my eyes shut, hoping to banish this unwelcome party crasher. When I opened them, the sun was eclipsed by another — The Norwegian.
My first impulse was to go over and hug him, but I knew that was only Windy-Mindy’s vitamins messing with my amygdala. My second impulse was to run.
It had been almost three years since I had seen my former business partner, and he hadn’t changed a bit. The ornate black leather trench coat and vaguely Druidic hairstyle would have been comical on a smaller man less prone to violence. As he loomed over the crowd I tried to disappear within it. We hadn’t parted on the best of terms.
I had brought him in on a deal that had started as a hobby for me, a way to use the inheritance I received from my grandfather — a couple acres of land on Hornby Island and a green thumb. Granddad grew prize-winning heirloom tomatoes there. People loved his tomatoes. I preferred marijuana. As did my friends, and their friends, and so on.
When I terminated our partnership, The Norwegian kept three hundred thousand dollars of my money and I kept my kneecaps, which seemed like a fair distribution of assets at the time. Deprived of “Granddad’s Ganja”, The Norwegian moved into harder drugs and I moved into a converted loft in a post-industrial neighbourhood in East Vancouver. I spent money, threw parties, started dating my real estate agent, wrote a screenplay, shredded a screenplay, married my real estate agent, spent the last of my money, got divorced by my real estate agent, became mildly depressed, and began perusing community college course catalogs. I was a phone call away from signing up for a denturist training program when my ex-wife/realtor lined me up with house sitting gigs for her wealthy clients.
Clients like Mickey Wu, in whose house The Norwegian was now standing. He was nonplussed when he spotted me. Then his face lit up with the expression of affected innocence that always accompanied his most heinous acts.
My pocket vibrated. I dug out my phone to find a text from Richard.
there’s a dead guy in the bathroom :(
I stared at the phone. Then I stared across the room at the bathroom door. The Norwegian was no longer standing in front of it. He had been replaced by Richard, who was staring back at me with an expression of genuine innocence and barely controlled panic.

Dim Sum of all Fears - An Interview & Review

I'm pleased to welcome Vivien Chien to the blog today. Vivien writes the Noodle House Mystery series. Dim Sum of all Fears, the second book in the series, will be released Tuesday.

Kathy: In Dim Sum of All Fears, we find Lana Lee not only working at her parent's restaurant, but actually left in charge while her folks are on vacation. Have you ever been left with a major responsibility that you weren't looking for?

VC: Fortunately nothing as major as handling a family business. When I was little, my mom did own a Chinese gift shop--(That little room in the back of Ho-Lee Noodle is a real place!)—and she would tell me all the time that one day it would be mine to run. Since I was so young, it didn’t really phase me, but as an adult, I’m not sure how I would have handled it if she was like, “Ok, I’m retiring now, good luck!”

Kathy: Having once lived in Cleveland, Ohio, I was delighted that your series is set there. How did you choose Cleveland to be the home of your Asia Village?

VC: First reason being, it’s my home and I absolutely love it here (despite the winters). Cleveland is a great city with a lot of history and so much to offer, I wanted to feature some of that in my writing.

Kathy: Your Noodle Shop Mystery series is filled with delightful characters, my favorite being the enigmatic Mr. Zhang. Would you rather take one of his remedies or play mahjong with the Mahjong Matrons?

VC: I wouldn’t mind spending some time at Wild Sage with Mr. Zhang and learning all he knows about herbal remedies, but I’d really have to pick an afternoon playing mahjong with the Matrons…their stories alone would keep me entertained for hours.

Kathy: If you had to work in the Asia Village, whose business would you choose?

VC: I would love to work at any one of the shops there, but I think I’d choose to work at the plaza’s bookstore, The Modern Scroll. (Although, I don’t know how much work would actually get done…I’d be too busy browsing the stacks!)

Kathy: What first drew you to cozy mysteries?

VC: The first cozy I ever read was Cleo Coyle’s coffeehouse mystery, On What Grounds, and I was immediately hooked. The story was a lot of fun, the characters were all lovable, and I got to read about coffee in the process. After that I learned about the immense world of themed cozies and I couldn’t stop searching for new series.

The thing I enjoy most about them is that even though they’re on the lighter side of the genre, they are amazing, well-rounded stories. It’s not just the mystery you get sucked in to, it’s the people, their lives, and their interests.

Kathy: Do you write in any other genres?

VC: Prior to writing mysteries, I did dabble in a few other genres. I attempted horror for a short time and then later chick lit (complete opposites, I know). But the majority of my time was spent working on paranormal fiction. The novel that came as a product of that ended up turning into a paranormal mystery. I hope to have it published someday.

Kathy: Tell us about your series.

VC: Lana Lee is down on her luck and grasping to make sense of her messy life. In hopes of putting it back together, she gives in and starts working at her parents’ Chinese restaurant. All seems normal in the beginning, but she ends up going on adventures she never imagined…and, of course, those adventures equal murder.

Kathy: Do you have a favorite character? If so, who and why?

VC: It’s hard to choose just one! I enjoy Lana most of all because I feel the closest to her character and the journey she’s on. But I have to say, from a writing standpoint, I do love Kimmy Tran. She’s a fun character to write and I never know who she’s going to dish attitude to next.

Kathy: Did you have a specific inspiration for your series?

VC: I can’t really say there was a specific thing that brought me to writing the Noodle Shop mysteries. However, one thing that stands out above the various reasons was the idea of having something larger than just a shop or a stand-alone restaurant. It was about having a small community of people who all sort of work together on a daily basis and what secrets they keep. The setting gives me the opportunity to explore how these different people react and how it may affect the way they treat each other.

Kathy: What made you decide to publish your work?

VC: I’ve wanted to be an author since I was pretty young, and my desire to have a published book grew over time. I think every writer dreams to have their voice heard by whoever will listen. And, having a book sit on a bookstore or library shelf is such an honor. I feel special (and lucky!) to be on the shelf among my favorite authors. Before I knew I was getting my first book deal, I would go to the bookstore and look for the spot where my name would be on the shelf and hope one day it would actually be there. I never imagined that dream would ever come true.

Kathy: If you could have a dinner party and invite 4 authors, living or dead, in any genre, who would you invite?

VC: Anne Rice, Sue Grafton, Stephen King and Charles Bukowski. I feel like that would be a VERY entertaining dinner party.

Kathy: What are you currently reading?

VC: Imagine a society dominated by a worldwide, virtual reality game that the government was trying to take over, add in an underdog who is fighting to keep that from happening, and you’ve got... Ready Player One by Ernest Cline – Amazing storyline, great 1980s references, and of course, a video game! I’m not typically into science fiction, but this book is phenomenal.

Kathy: Will you share any of your hobbies or interests with us?

VC: Well, let’s see…I’m a video game fanatic (I’m a Playstation girl, if anyone was wondering), I enjoy long walks in the bookstore, occasional crafting, and decorative planning. Yes, you read that right.

Kathy: Name 4 items you always have in your fridge or pantry.

VC: -Coffee! It’s a must in life, especially during writing marathons!

-Blue corn tortilla chips…these are my new favorite addiction

-Noodles – I always have udon or lo mein noodles in the house. A girl can never be too sure when she’s going to have a craving

-Hummus – After all, I need something to go with those tortilla chips ;)

Kathy: Do you have plans for future books either in your current series or a new series?

VC: Yes, I actually just signed a new contract with St. Martin’s Press for books four through six of the Noodle Shop series. Aside from Lana’s adventures, I do have a couple ideas up my sleeve for other series that will hopefully see the light of day.

Kathy: What's your favorite thing about being an author?

VC: The fact that I get to put my imagination to good use is extremely attractive. But I think the best part of being an author is getting to connect with so many different people. Since the publishing of my first book, I’ve talked with several readers, librarians, and bloggers in various parts of the U.S., and even some in other countries. Hearing that people are enjoying the story I’m trying to tell or that they can relate to one of my characters is the most amazing feeling in the world.



DIM SUM OF ALL FEARS by Vivien Chien
The Second Noodle House Mystery

Ever grateful for the safety net her parents' restaurant provided, Lana Lee is now ready to move on. But her new job is lost before her interview when her parent's announce they are going on an extended trip to Taiwan and leave Lana in charge of the Ho-Lee Noodle House. At least Lana can spend time with her new friend. Isabelle and her husband Brandon recently opened a souvenir shop in Asia Village, and although Brandon seems a bit sketchy, Lana enjoys Isabelle's company. While things are running smoothly at the restaurant Asia Village suffers another tragedy when Isabelle and her husband are found dead in an apparent murder/suicide in their shop. Did Brandon kill his young wife before killing himself? Or was he a victim as well? Lana is determined to find the truth and justice for her friend.
I loved this second outing in the Noodle House Mystery series. Each page was a delicious morsel, the mystery, fulfilling fare. While still unsure of her future, Lana is coming into her own. Her attitude, the strength of her friendships and loyalty, make her an admirable woman...even if her life is uncertain and a bit of a mess. I would be proud to call Lana Lee a friend.
DIM SUM OF ALL FEARS is a novel of many layers. First there's the intricately plotted, detailed mystery. The well developed characters illustrate complex family dynamics, as well as relationships between friends, neighbors, and co-workers. There is no shortage of humor. Several moments had me grinning, if not laughing out loud!

Vivien Chien has created a world I want to visit and people I would like to call friends. DIM SUM OF ALL FEARS is a top notch mystery with a wonderful cast of characters. The only problem is that I have a craving for noodles!


When she’s not writing, Vivien can be found frolicking in the bookstore or searching for her next bowl of noodles. She has a soft spot for doughnuts, a healthy love for coffee, and an extreme need to participate in random acts of crafting.

She currently lives in Cleveland where she is hard at work on the fourth book in her Noodle Shop series and writes side-by-side with her toy fox terrier.

Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Disappearing Diva - A Guest Post & Giveaway

I'm pleased to welcome Gemma Halliday to Cozy Up With Kathy today.

Thank you so much for having me here to chat about my brand-new Marty Hudson Mystery, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING DIVA! One thing I have had a lot of readers asked me is how I came up with the idea for this series. Like many avid mystery fans, I grew up reading the classic mystery novels like those from Agatha Christie, Erle Stanley Gardner, and of course Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes series. I knew I wanted to create my own take on Sherlock Holmes, however not being a historical novelist I decided to give it a modern day setting.

My Sherlock Holmes world is actually sent in modern day San Francisco. Having grown up in the area myself, it's somewhere I'm very familiar with, and I love the young, energetic, vibrant feel the tech industry has brought to the city, mixed with the history of the classic Victorian homes, art and culture, and the strong gold rush tenacity the city was built on. While Marty's inherited Victorian home sits at 221 Baker St. in the heart of San Francisco, many of the characters in this series, like Marty's best friend Irene Adler, have jobs that center around the Silicon Valley, the neighbor to the south which is home to start ups, computer prodigies, and some of the latest and greatest innovations.

One of the reasons I wanted to set the story in this world is that between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley you can find just about any sort of odd characters or settings you're looking for. For example in the first book in this series, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE BRASH BLONDE, Marty and Irene find themselves running for their lives through Chinatown, visiting a legal marijuana dispensary, and breaking into a yoga studio to find evidence of a killer. In the second installment of Marty's adventures, the recently released SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING DIVA, she and Irene find themselves wrapped up in a missing person case that takes place in the world of opera singers in San Francisco. And, of course, Marty's job as a barista at the Stanford University bookstore Café, has her spending quite a bit of time on the prestigious campus soaking up all sorts of information that helps her in her investigations.

I hope you enjoy taking a literary trip through the City by the Bay as you read SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE DISAPPEARING DIVA! And please feel free to comment or drop me a line through my website any time. I love hearing from readers!


Gemma has graciously offered an e-copy of SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE CASE OF THE BRASH BLONDE, the first book in the Marty Hudson Mystery series. Simply leave a comment on this post no later than 11:59pm EDT Monday, August 20, 2018 telling us who your favorite classic detective is. Be sure to leave an e-mail address so that I can contact you, should you win.


Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Disappearing Diva (Marty Hudson Mysteries) by Gemma Halliday & Kelly Rey

About the Book

Cozy Mystery 2nd in Series  
Gemma Halliday Publishing (August 14, 2018)  
Print Length: 316 pages 
From #1 Kindle & New York Times bestselling author Gemma Halliday and USA Today bestselling author Kelly Rey comes a story about Sherlock Holmes, two savvy female detectives, and one chance to catch a killer and the hot Dr. Watson at the same time…
If there's one thing Martha "Marty" Hudson can't say no to, it's her best friend Irene Adler. So when Irene's little white lie about a fake detective named Sherlock Holmes turns into a real case from an actual paying client, Marty is all in. But their simple missing person case takes a deadly turn when the missing "person" ends up being a missing corpse.
Rebecca Lowery was an opera singer in life and, according to her sister, who hires the famous detective to find her, a diva with capital D. When her body goes missing after a supposedly accidental fall, Marty & Irene can think of several people who might want the diva to disappear permanently—especially if her missing body is actually hiding evidence of her murder. Is it the boyfriend with a temper and a shady record, the jealous understudy who's now stealing the show, the creepy undertaker with possible ties to the underworld, or the estranged sister herself who now inherits everything?
Marty and Irene aim to find out, even while trying to keep cool around the hot ME, Dr. Watson, and dodging questions from the Irregulars blogger, Wiggins, about the mysterious man behind the name Sherlock Holmes. Will the ladies be able to pull this one off? Or are they in over their heads…and possibly about to take their own final bows?
