Enter the series at any book - each is a complete standalone mystery!
When your day starts with a man stuck to the top of a sailboat mast, things have to get better, don’t they?
When real estate tycoon Bucky Bloom is found stuck to the end of a sailboat mast, a land war erupts in Pineapple Port. Amateur sleuth Charlotte Morgan is commissioned to solve Bucky’s murder, but soon finds herself embroiled in a competition masterminded by her boyfriend’s crazy ex, the ever-nefarious Stephanie.
Pineapple Hurricane: Stormy secrets and a murder mystery... by Amy Vansant
When a Pineapple Port resident is found dead during an approaching hurricane, Charlotte fears someone’s trying to disguise murders as storm-related accidents. The first two victims have more than the storm in common – both were hoarding valuable storm supplies like toilet paper and water.
Hm. Maybe the killer is karma!
Bringing together the area’s community leaders to spread a warning could lead to even more trouble. Last time the Five Families got together, someone ended up dead. But things could be much deadlier if Declan’s crazy ex is right and the Puzzle Killer's broken out of prison…
And did that lamppost just explode, or is someone trying to kill Charlotte and Declan?
Charlotte vows to solve the crime before the storm hits. Mariska and Darla vow to find some toilet paper for sale, even if they have to call in help from their old neighbor, the revenge-genius, Gloria.
Buckle down for a blustery ride as the storm hits!
MY FROG HOTEL
I got another frog visitor on my camera. These guys live behind my metal pineapple wall hanging - I can hear them coming home in the morning and crawling behind to take their naps after a hard night hunting bugs. They sometimes poop down my walls, but I don't have the heart to evict them (well, I've carried as many as five of them a few houses down, and they find their way back anyway!) Looks like I've got the best frog AirBnB going!
IF YOU WRITE ANYTHING - GET GRAMMARLY
YOU'LL BE FLAWLESS - GRAMMARLY PREMIUM IS WORTH IT.
I was a holdout. I'll admit it. I was using Grammarly's free version, which I love. It was life-changing how it checks all my writing online AND in Microsoft Word. I'm using it now, and it has kept me from looking like an idiot four times already.
I didn't want to upgrade because I feared the "suggestions" would be wired more toward business writers, and my book manuscripts would be impossible to read for all the misguided suggestions that don't apply to fiction.
But, I finally gave in and upgraded... and WOW!! Grammarly Premium is TOTALLY WORTH IT. The extra suggestions lit my work-in-progress up like a Christmas tree, and they were really good - not only did it spot additional punctuation issues, but most of the suggestions to reword things for clarity were spot on. Overall, suggestions I disagreed with were few and fiction-based (it hates it when I say "old man," which is necessary - it would like me to use a more gentle "older man." 😂)

As the Grimoire Pages Turn (Murder, She Witches Book 1) by Kat McGee
The first major event at the reopened Three Witches Bookstore goes terribly wrong when the new owner discovers a body in the reading nook.
Fiftyish cozy mystery novelist and spell writer Octavia Grimstone has a run-in with a memoir writer, as do a slew of other suspects, including the local mayor who broadcasts a threat over a hot microphone through the state-of-the-art sound system.
The demise of the bless-her-heart snarky author of the tell-all witch memoir does not bode well for Octavia and her bookstore co-owners. Nor does dealing with the ancient cranky cat set on bringing the bookstore back to its former glory, minus two of the three current owners. (The familiar’s not particular about which witches but insists two must go.)
Octavia and Witch Doctor Cassius Drake get off to an awkward start due to her being a primary murder suspect. As an official broom-riding, countrified middle-aged witch, she is forced to battle the curse the memoirist cast on the bookstore. Yet she must solve the mystery since the lives of other community writers are at stake.
Amid a brewing author group rivalry, the possibility of unexpected romance, and warnings from the centuries-old scraggly black cat, Octavia struggles to finish writing her current cozy. Which seems more and more impossible as murder, she witches, and the grimoire pages turn.
