Hostage to Fortune Launches Tomorrow

Book 2 in my Tea and Tarot cozy mysteries, Hostage to Fortune, launches tomorrow. I don't do big launch parties during the best of times, and now champagne parties are definitely out. So please consider this post a virtual confetti toss. (I may be privately swilling champagne later tomorrow night).

Here's what you need to know. Hostage to Fortune is a light, funny romp along the Northern California coast, and it's bound to bring a smile to your face. Like everything I write, there's a complicated heroine and a lot of heart. I'm working on book 3 in the series, Oolong, Farewell, which will launch this September 21st.

And if you want the free novella in the series, Fortune Favors the Grave, be sure to sign up for my newsletter at!

Abigail and Hyperion uncork a murder…

Tea and Tarot room owner Abigail Beanblossom is used to running interference for her socially-awkward former boss, tech billionaire Razzzor. So when he invites her on a stakeout to investigate the sale of counterfeit wine from his latest venture – an upscale winery – she barrels on in. But the two stumble across the corpse of a wine merchant, and new wine in old bottles is now the least of their problems.

Good thing amateur detectives Abigail and her partner, tarot reader Hyperion Night, have a nose for murder. Their investigation takes them from elegant wine cellars to chic tea parties on the California coast. But just as the investigation starts to get its legs, Abigail discovers there’s more than wine at the bottom of this crime…

Hostage to Fortune is book 2 in the Tea and Tarot cozy mystery series. Start reading this hilariously cozy caper today!
