This may be a decent book day. It’s starting out well, anyway. Nothing too intense either, with authors I’ve not often read, just once or twice by the looks of it. BookBub suggested this first one.

Who Murdered Mr. Malone? : A Garden Girls Cozy Mystery Series Book 1

Nothing exciting ever happens in the small town of Belhaven. Nothing that is, until a body was found in the woods behind the local elementary school.

With the entire town in an uproar, “Garden Girl” Gloria Rutherford makes it her personal mission to find the killer or killers and solve the mystery with some help from her friends.

With a little amateur detective work, Gloria is able to uncover enough clues that point right to the murderer. She’s about to discover, however, things aren’t always as clear cut as they would appear.


The second book showed up while browsing. Book 1 in this series showed up for us several years ago.

Summer Nights in Wild Harbor (Wild Harbor Beach Book 2)

They’re opposites in every way. Forced into sharing an office. Can this headstrong pair reconcile their differences and write their own happily ever after—on and off the page?

Journalist Megan Woods knows that fairy tales don’t come true. So when a handsome stranger shows up to rescue her from a blind date gone wrong, she figures there has to be a catch.

Turns out, he’s her newest competition at the newspaper. Megan thinks she has the editor-in-chief position sewn up, until the annoyingly good looking Finn Avery appears to steal her promotion.

As far as she’s concerned, their relationship is strictly business. But Finn is not anything like she expected. She just has to convince her heart not to fall for the enemy.

Finn Avery moved to Wild Harbor as the town’s newest reporter, only to find out he’s been paired with spitfire Megan Woods. His past holds secrets that have taught him not to take a chance on love.

Both fiercely competitive, they’re opposites in every way. But when they’re forced to team up for a story, the sparks fly.


One last one from a popular well known author this time.

Why is a dead woman’s phone—evidence in a murder investigation—in Jonas Parker’s son’s bedroom? Dangerous thugs are after that phone and his terrified teenager, so the single father turns to Capitol K-9 Unit officer Brooke Clark. Years ago, Brooke broke Jonas’s heart without explanation. But he has to trust her and her highly-trained golden retriever to keep his son safe. When the boy goes missing, Jonas and Brooke must make peace with their past to find the teen—before increasingly desperate criminals get to him first. 

Capitol K-9 Unit: These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners.
