BOO! Halloween is Coming!

And with it, Halloween themed books! Amazon has a lists of them for children and for adults. They suggest these: found at (

 The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury
 Summer of Night by Dan Simmons
In Silent Graves by Gary A. Braunbeck
The Monstrumologist by Richard Yancey
A Halloween Happening by Adrienne Adams
 Speaks the Nightbird by Robert R. McCammon
Threshold by Caitlin R. Kiernan

plus a few others.

I, however, will recommend a brand new one for you: BROKE, An Imogene Duckworthy Mystery, the third in the series. It's just out this month and involves a haunted house, a ghost, a mystery or two, and a potbelly pig. What could be better?

Imogene Duckworthy is twenty-two and has a job (PI assistant) and a new car (used).  She loves her mother, but it's time she was on her own.  The problem is her daughter Nancy Drew Duckworthy’s pet potbelly. Not a lot of rentals in Wymee Falls will permit a pig, even one as cute and charming as Marshmallow. Jersey Shorr of Shorr Realty manages to find something but there are rumors that the house is haunted.  Immy tells herself she doesn’t believe in ghosts. She signs the contract and plans to move in before Halloween.  What she doesn’t plan on is the very real, very dead body in the bathtub.  And the fact that the most logical murder suspect is her Uncle Dewey, fresh out of prison.  Immy can’t allow her long-lost relative to be railroaded for a crime he (possibly) didn’t commit, can she?

If you haven't read any Duckworthy mysteries yet, give this one a try! It's available in all formats, e-book and paperback. Kindle is here, and the rest of the links are on my Novel Page.


  1. BROKE--definitely. It'll be even better if you've already read CHOKE.

  2. Thanks, twitw! I could also suggest SMOKE, but it has a 4th of July theme. :)

  3. Sound wonderful, Kaye. I'm putting it in TBR pile, for sure.
