An all-new mystery series from Sharon Pape — set in a sparkling world of crystals and crime…
I'd like to introduce you to Jaye, Sierra and Daniel, some new pals I've been hanging with lately. They live in Sedona, Arizona where Jaye is the proprietor of a crystal shop, Sierra owns a bakery and Daniel, a full-blooded Navajo, owns a company that runs guided tours of the Red Rock Country (including its famous psychic vortexes).
When Jaye and Sierra find themselves the prime suspects in a murder case, the three friends are determined to find the real culprit. They have some unexpected help along the way from a strange, little creature who proves to be quite a mystery herself. Add in Daniel's grandmother, who comes from a long line of medicine women, and things really start popping. You can meet them all in my new "Crystal Shop Mysteries" from Berkley Intermix. The first book in the series, Alibis and Amethysts, debuts on August 20th, 2013, as an ebook.
Even though I've been spending a lot of time with my new friends, I haven't forgotten my old buddies. The fun with Rory, Zeke and the rest of the "Sketch Book" gang continues in the fourth book, Sketcher in the Rye, due out December 17th, 2013, also from Berkley Intermix.
"Just when I think that every kind of cozy mystery series that can be written, has been written, an author like Sharon Pape comes up with something original that sparkles and stands out from the crowd. She gives us interesting characters, thought-provoking mysteries, lovable animals, a wacky aunt, a ghost, some time-shifting chapters, witty dialogue, and leaves readers with a thirst for more. I hope Ms. Pape is a fast writer and that the next book is released sooner rather than later, as I canít wait to find out what happens next.
I recommend this book to everyone who loves a mystery, animals, and ghost stories. You canít go wrong with this one because there is simply nothing not to like! Enjoy!" - Laura Hinds on MyShelf.com
