Pineapple Puppies (Pineapple Port #9 is 99¢ today!)

Someone has left puppies on the doorsteps of Pineapple Port's residents, but the adorable balls of fur seem to be connected to the murder of a nearby millionaire with too many heirs of his own.

Meanwhile, Mariska's been framed for baking a killer cake, and Charlotte must clear her name,

Fans of classic cozy mysteries will adore this whodunnit packed with puppies, baking, horses, sneaky maids and a dead rich man!

“Every time I read one of these I am convinced they cannot get any better. Yet they do, every time. These characters are like family. I relate to each one in a different way. And the mystery unravels itself a little more on each page. It only needs more Declan to be perfect.” ~ Marsha Jeanne Thalleen ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


The new Shee McQueen is available for pre-order!

I'm almost done writing it! Half of it reveals the secret to why Croix has been hiding out at the Loggerhead and where/how Mick found her, the other half is about new recruits working with the crew. If you like action, you'll LOVE this one - every chapter drags you breathless into the next!
